Move over GTX1080! There is a new Titan X in town!

Recommended Posts

 

Talk about horsepower! But unfortunately we know how little this will probably mean to flight simmers. Especially for the MSRP of $1200. Hopefully, this is a preview of performance to come from the 1080ti. Feel bad for those who jumped on the 1080 too soon. 

 

From TomsHardware: On July 21, Nvidia’s Founder and CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang attended an artificial intelligence meet-up at Stanford University, where he revealed the new world’s fastest GPU—and it has a familiar name. The old Titan X is dead, long live the Titan X.

Nvidia said the new Titan X came to be as the result of a bet between Brian Kelleher, Nvidia’s top hardware engineer, and Huang. According to the story, Huang didn’t believe that Kelleher could squeeze 10 TFLOPS out of a single GPU. Kelleher, however, managed to do just that. The new Titan X is a beast of GPU with 3584 CUDA cores (over 500 more than the previous Titan X) operating at 1530MHz. According to Nvidia, the Pascal Titan X is the biggest GPU ever built, and it is 60 percent faster than the previous-gen Titan X.

Will this be faster ( more FPS) than my 3dfx Voodoo card when running FS95?

Old news Josh!  But it's certainly going to allow dubious re-sellers an opportunity to clear out their old Titan X's stock pretending they're the new Titan X's by omitting the specifications ... they really should have named it differently regardless of specification list ... just think of all the "benchmark" reviewers ... the Titan X vs Titan X oh wait Old Titan X vs. New Titan X.

 

I'm on the list for a couple, but no nVidia insider this time so probably will not be able to get one (in Stock) until Oct or later. 

 

I have two Titan X's for sale :)

 

Cheers, Rob.

Old news Josh!  

 

Old news? Nvidia just announced it a couple of hours before I shared it.  :blink:

Eh. I might grab one if it seems worth it. No worries, I have plenty of drooling teenagers in the family who would love my 1080.

 

That's how it always works. Somebody in the family gets my old card and everyone moves up a step.

That was also my first thought. Nice opportunity for some bad guys to try selling their "old" Titan X via online platforms simply not giving more specifications and sadly there will be people buying it thinking they get a "new" Titan X. Don't really understand why nVidia was thinking that using the same name again would be a good thing to do...

 

Personally, I am a little bit disappointed that the new Titan X comes without HBM2 but GDDR5X instead. I was looking forward to a GTX-1080Ti replacing my 980Ti by the end of this year offering HBM2, but now I think this will not happen. I even think that this Titan X is basically the supposed to be 1080Ti, as I expected from a "real" Titan to have at least doubled the amount of RAM compared to the x80 card. Probably in Spring 2017, there will be another high-end card with the Pascal chip plus 8-16GB HBM2 coming as a "Titan Y" for about 2000$, I would not be surprised...

Probably typical of family's with imbedded techies.

here's a review 

 

Just watched that myself. It is most impressive that in some cases, it overclocks higher than many of the 1080's!

 

EKWB just announced their new waterblocks for this thing, so the two of them paired could be a remarkable combination.

Excellent news about EK ... but as I suspected ... out of stock, out of stock, out of stock, out of stock ... I guess many kids were sold recently.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Should be great everything looks good wonder if that famous ti model pops up next year lol its never ending.

Lol Rob its insane the stock levels.

The 1070/1080 are the best (in terms of price / power ratio) gaming cards at the moment. With the 1070 offering a better bang for the buck then the 1080.

 

Yah, but then my 1080 just barely lets me max out (mostly) X-plane-x. If I had gotton a 1070 I would even now probably be stewing and wondering why I hadn't gone for the 1080.

 

Getting the Titan on the other hand..... that would be sheer, unashamed tech-lust and bang for the buck would have only a tiny bit to do with that.

 

The problem is that while modern games would get an immediate monstrous benefit from the new Titan, Flight Sims.........

 

Not so much.

 

Fortunately, I'm also an unashamed gamer. :smile:

And this will impact on the performance of our ten years old graphic engines for about how much? 5 FPS? 8 more FPS? Great deal!

You are right. P3D will not profit much from a better GPU.

So if one only flies in P3D a new GPU is wasted money.

 

But i am flying in 4K and i see my GPU constantly at 100% in Afterburner and GPU Tweak II.

So I guess I will gain some FPS.

 

But the bigger boost will appear in games like Doom, Dying Light, Fallout... As I am not only a "simmer" but also a "gamer", the 1080 is the way to go for me.

And like HiFlyer said: The Performance overkill would be the Titan X, especially with custom bios mods and watercooling like available for the old Titan. This will then be the killercard! But the pricetag.... well.... a little high.

I think that upgrading our GPUs may make sense in view of the future sim technology. AeroFly FS 2 and DCS already offer full and native support for VR. So will probably P3D 4 and DTG FS (not immediately, though, if we believe to what Martin wrote here months ago, but possibly in some future edition). Unquestionably 3D and VR are the future of flight simulation and this technology is very GPU-demanding. 

 

In view of the current sim technology, read FSX, FSX-SE or P3D 3.x, however, I don't think it makes much sense to upgrade. If past is any indication, benefits will be very low compared to the price.

I agree with those saying this is overkill for ESP-based flight sims (P3D, FSX/SE).  That's why my FS rig only has a 1070 in it.  My gaming machine gets the Titan X :spiteful:   Waterblocks aren't out yet so I just have it on the stock air cooler for now, but it's a perfect match for a 4k screen and I don't have to mess with SLI.  Happy days!

Titan SLI review. Warning, these guys are kind of annoying.

Hey, Jerry isn't annoying  :mad:  The other guy though...

 

Ok, Barnacules is a little annoying, but he's just playing the "jolly fat nerd" stereotype due to body image issues. If you watch the guy's Youtube channel he's been open about this in the past, he actually is a really smart, very nice person who does make generally interesting and entertaining content.

Just got the information that my card is on the last step of delivery! Kind of makes my day very bright even though it's all rainy and cloudy in Munich.

The perfect overcast scenario to make some tests ;-)

As Arnold said in Pumping Iron... "It's better than... " Oops, better not post that. Lets just say that when a new graphics card arrives, or better still, the bits for an entire PC, then busty blondes, sexy super models and even a nice meal at Nando's takes second place!!!

 

Forget world peace, or fixing anthropogenic climate change... a new graphics card is way better!!!
