NVIDIA Titan X Specs, Price, Benchmarks Leaked; Performance Compared With AMD R9 390X

Forums - PC Discussion - NVIDIA Titan X Specs, Price, Benchmarks Leaked; Performance Compared With AMD R9 390X

Benchmarks of the new NVIDIA wonder card, Titan X, have been leaked. The leak comes fromVideocardz.com, and if the published scores are to be believed, the new Titan X from NVIDIA is nearly as fast as the Titan Z.

So, why is this such an impressive feat? That's because the Titan X is a single-GPU card, whereas the Titan Z is a dual-GPU card. Additionally, the Titan X will reportedly sell for $999, which is the same price as the original GTX Titan, and the GTX Titan Black. Meanwhile, the Titan Z costs $3000.

The new NVIDIA GTX Titan X is based on the GM200 chip. It's a fully-enabled chip, with 3072 CUDA cores, 192 TMUs, and 96 ROPs. The ROP count has doubled since the original GTX Titan and Titan Black GPUs. Also, core clock has been upped to 1GHz.

Talking about bandwidth, the Titan X sticks to a 384-bit GDDR5 interface, which translates to 336 GB/s of bandwidth. Now, there are talks about the AMD R9 390X with HBM memory to offer 1024 GB/s of bandwidth, thanks to the use of a new memory technology.

The Titan X has 12GB of VRAM, which some might consider to be a bit too much. 4GB cards have become the norm these days, and while NVIDIA pushed to 6GB with the last-generation GTX Titan series, you'll hardly ever see cards with more than 4GB VRAM in the market. There's a rumor that the R9 390X will come with 8GB of VRAM.

Producing the Titan X is a costly affair for NVIDIA. It's their biggest GPU ever on the 28nm node. With the large number of CUDA cores, the GM200 die occupies 600mm^2 of space, which is bigger than the rumored 550mm^2 die space of the R9 390X GPU.

Additionally, we have several benchmarks and slides from Chiphell that reveal more information about the GM200. The Titan X has 8.1 billion transistors, phew. And NVIDIA will release a cut-down GM200 GPU called the GTX 980 Ti.

Chiphell.com's benchmark slides compare the performance of the GTX Titan X, unannounced GTX 980 Ti, and unannounced AMD R9 390X GPUs at 4K resolution, and Quad HD too. Power consumption figures have been compared as well.

Despite the upgraded specs, the GTX Titan X continues to sip the same amount of power as the GTX Titan. Kudos to NVIDIA's brilliant engineering department and Maxwell's power efficiency. Meanwhile, the GTX 980 Ti consumes 11 watts more than the GTX 980. The AMD R9 390X consumes roughly the same amount of power as the R9 290X.

At the end of the day, all leaks point towards AMD having a killer GPU in the pipeline. The R9 390X has a smaller die, higher performance, faster memory, but consumes a little more power. The rumored pricing of the GTX Titan X is $999, and we fully expect AMD to beat NVIDIA by pricing the R9 390X somewhere between $500-$700.

Do we have a new winner in the GPU market from NVIDIA? Or will it quickly get demolished by AMD's upcoming champion?

Well, it turns out that the leak was correct, the first reviews are already out

If the R9 390X comes out and its faster than the Titan X or close enough to it while being a shit ton cheaper, that would be amazing!!! The Titan X is pretty amazing as of right now though

Hmmm... still on 28nm, nice and expensive.

When are AMD/NVidia scaling down?

I do really hope that the 390X is cheap, but with the recent price list that has been leaked, I'm not very optimistic

Still, I'll have to read the reviews and see how does the Titan X compare to the 290X. The lastest performance leaks (on the OP) showed the TitanX being about 35-45% faster than the 290X, and if that turns out to be true then there are more reasons to believe that the 390X figures are also true.

Essh, I was hoping it would be more in the $500-$600 range and not $700+. Not to say it doesn't deliver the performance based on the price but it looks like I will skip if thats the case. And while the 380X will be faster than a 290X, I really wanted that HBM in there but oh well. I will just wait and see what Nvidia can come up with when their thing launches

I also wanted lower prices, but that what we have.

What I find strange is the big 300$ gap between the 380X and the 390. It's a hole too big to fill that Nvidia can take advantage of (take it as you want ).

Loll true dat! It will certainly be interesting

Outside of a handful, the market for $500+ GPUs is only for bragging rights. Titan Z, X, 390X, blah.

What I'm interested is the real followup to the 290 and 970 deals out right now. The pricing is so good on those that it's awesome. Kind of humbling to think you can CF a pair of cheap 290s and blow a 390X or Titan X away (for much less $/perf).
