Nvidia Titan RTX

Recommended Posts

Anyone with access to a Quadro with 16/24/48GB VRAM care to measure VRAM utilization in a maxed settings/every add-on/4k (or even 3x4k) P3D config and report here?  That would help in determining whether or not there's any advantage to buying a card like this for flight simmers.

It’s official GPU prices are out of control.  $2500?? Give me a frickin break. But I guess as long as people keep throwing money away they will keep raising the prices.

The last Titan was $3000.  This is technically a price cut.

Settle down. You are not the target market for a Titan card.

 

Professional rendering GPU's can cost upwards of tens of thousands of dollars. The Titan is a easy ticket for Post Processing and 3-D studios that can't afford the bigger budget hardware.

Alright, Alright sorry for being angry.  I’m still recovering from my 2080ti purchase.

I bought one too.  Also bought Titan X (Pascal) when it launched so I'm used to the $1200 price point.  Now it's $2500 though and that starts to get into the territory where I have to think hard about whether that money could be better spent elsewhere.  Then again, I contemplated SLI 2080 Ti due to the rumor of "combined VRAM pool with NVLink" nonsense that was circulating prior to launch.  Now that amount of VRAM is actually available on a consumer card and around the same price as 2x 2080 Ti it starts to make sense to me...

Some highlights:

24GB GDDR6

4608 CUDA cores

576 Tensor cores

72 Ray Tracing cores

Price: $2499

 

Anyone gonna pull the trigger?  May be the last graphics card you ever need for flight sim...  I just bought a 2080 Ti and it's in the return window so...

 

lol

I may have to pass.

I ending up buy a new car on wife demanded in exchange for getting the Titan Pascal  😉 

Getting that beast of a card may require a new house. I saw the info on that card, 24 gig VRAM tells you where things are going.

I wonder if Rob A is up for the challenge.

What the heck! Are graphics cards going to replace real estate, art, high end sports cars and gambling casinos as vehicles for money laundering? I don't buy the statement that this is for professional graphics work. Those people use Quadros. This card is just a status symbol.

There is a category of products that straddles both consumer and professional markets, known as "prosumer".  This is an example of such a product.  Traditionally, Nvidia has used the Titan brand to reach out to professional users that don't necessarily need the certified drivers/firmware of the Quadro line but have a need for performance that is typically not available via Geforce cards in professional applications.  Users in this category can save money vs. buying a Quadro and Nvidia can make a whole bunch more money than not selling them anything.

Yeah, like I said, this card is just for bragging rites. Notice the two brass balls in the photo. :wink:

Please, tell me more about how Titan isn't useful to professionals.  

🙄

If you don't want to buy one that's fine, but it's pretty clear you don't have all the facts here.
