NVIDIA Titan V: Not for gamers

It’s easy to understand why the media and gamers were getting all excited following NVIDIA’s announcement of the Titan V. After all, it’s dubbed as “the world’s most powerful GPU for the PC, driven by the world’s most advanced GPU architecture, NVIDIA Volta”.

However, this massively powerful card is not for gamers. It comes with a high price tag of US$2,999.

NVIDIA is aiming it at a different target audience — researchers and developers.

With 21.1 billion transistors delivering 110 teraflops of raw horsepower, the Titan V excels at computational processing for scientific simulation.

“With TITAN V, we are putting Volta into the hands of researchers and scientists all over the world. I can’t wait to see their breakthrough discoveries,” said Jensen Huang, CEO of NVIDIA.
