  • Volta Arrives: nVidia Announces Titan V Graphics Card

With 21.1 billion transistors delivering 110 teraflops of raw horsepower, the Titan V is said to be nine times as powerful as its predecessor, and way more energy efficient thanks to being based on Nvidia's Volta GPU architecture. Both the Titan V and V100 cards seem to have quite a bit in common, including the V100 GPU at their core, though the Titan V features both less memory and a reduced memory bus width. Just when we thought the company was done with new GPU launches for the year, Nvidia turned around and launched the TITAN V, the first Volta-based Titan graphics card.

The Titan V will be supported by the Nvidia GPU cloud which includes within it many HPC tools and deep learning frameworks. GPUs are good at executing the types of calculations needed to train a machine learning system, and Nvidia's Volta architecture is created to provide further performance boosts at those tasks.

Titan V is packed with Nvidia's best technologies, including the latest 12nm Volta GPU architecture and highly tuned 12GB HBM2 memory subsystem.

"Our vision for Volta was to push the outer limits of high performance computing and AI".

Nvidia calls its new compute units Tensor Cores, and they are designed specifically for deep learning, with independent integer and floating-point data paths that can operate in parallel. "We broke new ground with its new processor architecture, instructions, numerical formats, memory architecture and processor links", said Nvidia founder and CEO Jensen Huang.

In the previous news-item, we talked about the Titan Volta graphics card. "I can't wait to see their breakthrough discoveries", he added.

As mentioned, this is aimed at serious applications by scientific researchers in the fields of AI and high-performance computing in general, with a focus also on energy efficiency as well as power.

This Volta architecture features a major redesign of the streaming multiprocessor that is at the centre of the GPU.

The new Titan V is available from Nvidia now, with a maximum order of two per customer in place.
