NVIDIA just announced the newest TITAN class card and it's a beast. Not quiet the $10,000+ Tesla P100 class beast but it's up there.
While impressive this card doesn't seem to be aimed at gamers (that's the inevitable 1080Ti). It was announced at Standford University and seems to be pushing a lot of Deep Learning performance numbers. It'll still kick ass at games but at $1,200 it's out of the budget of most gamers.
- 11 TFLOPS FP32 44 TOPS INT8 (new deep learning inferencing instruction) 12B transistors 3,584 CUDA cores at 1.53GHz (versus 3,072 cores at 1.08GHz in previous TITAN X) Up to 60% faster performance than previous TITAN X High performance engineering for maximum overclocking 12 GB of GDDR5X memory (480 GB/s)
Launches August 2nd and is mentioned as only being available from Nvidia directly. Unknown if there will be AIB versions of this card. If they go the route of the original Titan, maybe not. Especially if they aren't targeting this towards the gamer, that'll again be the inevitable 1080Ti.

Nice. It is good to see that Nvidia is pushing the boundaries again. I wonder if AMD can keep up with their latest generation.

I think the price point is being misunderstood by a lot of people. The Titan series was never supposed to be affordable or the majority card for Nvidia customers. Its about providing insane amounts of power for the people who are willing to pay a higher power per dollar/euro ratio.
I'm really glad to see this card being announced but I just hope nvidia ramp up their production line and actually make the products available to buy.

Aye, these are basically consumer prototypes. They're not supposed to be put in your standard gaming system. They're intended for those that do benchmarks, or really want to push the boundaries. They're luxuries. Like a golden Porsche or something.
