A little over a month ago Nvidia launched the highly anticipated GTX 1080 Ti, something that both Team Green and Red alike drooling over. The dust has barely begun to settle from its release and now they’ve announced the Titan Xp.
Not to be confused with the Titan X Pascal card that has already been in circulation since the 2nd of August last year, the Titan Xp will feature faster GDDR5X than the previous Titan X and brings faster clock speeds too.
Coming in with 256 more Cuda Cores than both the Titan and the Ti the Titan Xp brings with it 14% more memory bandwidth than the Titan X and 4.5% more than the Ti, it’s currently the fastest consumer GPU that has been released to date.
For the time being the Titan Xp is only available direct from http://www.geforce.co.uk/ at the price of £1,159.00 and it’s unclear as to whether it will be available from any other online retailer but this was the case when the Titan X was released too.
One thing that is interesting is that nowhere on the Nvidia site does it say that it’s limited to x amount per customer unlike the 1080 Ti and the Titan X. I thought I’d test this and added 10 to my basket, nearly crying at the amount that it would have cost me, and I can confirm there isn’t a limit on the amount available for purchase. Whether this is an oversight from Nvidia or not is yet to be determined but if it’s not then I can only dream of the insane setups that we will start to see appearing soon.
