Nvidia GPU Titan RTX Graphics Card

Nvidia just unveiled its Turing architecture-based graphics card which the company claims is the fastest yet. The Titan RTX GPU is also referred to as T-Rex.

Titan RTX features 24GB of GDDR6 memory with a 384-bit bus interface, 72 RT cores, 576 Tensor cores, 4,608 CUDA cores, and a boost clock speed of 1,770MHz.

Among the advancements, Nvidia has utilized the fast DDR6 Video memory and the increased Level 2 cache memory in the newest GPU to aid in the boost in the memory data rate of 14 Gbps. This figure is more than 800 percent increase in the data transfer rate of its more expensive Titan V graphics card which sells for $2,999.

For Gaming?

You can use this graphics card for gaming. However, the price tag of $2,500 may not be encouraging to many. Especially for the price lower than that you can get yourself a dual GPU setup with the high-end Geforce RTX 2080 Ti or Titan Xp which are priced about $1,200 each at Nvidia.
