NVIDIA Announces TITAN V “Volta” Graphics Card

NVIDIA announced its new flagship graphics card; the TITAN V. This card features the “Volta” GV100 graphics processor, the same one which drives the company’s Tesla V100 HPC accelerator. The GV100 is a multi-chip module, with the GPU die and three HBM2 memory stacks sharing a package. The card features 12 GB of HBM2 memory across a 3072-bit wide memory interface. The GV100 is built on the 12 nm FinFET+ process by TSMC. NVIDIA TITAN V maxes out the GV100 silicon, if not its memory interface, featuring a whopping 5,120 CUDA cores, 640 Tensor cores (specialized units that accelerate neural-net building/training). The CUDA cores are spread across 80 streaming multiprocessors, spread across 6 graphics processing clusters (GPCs). The total TMU count is 320.

This new GPU core is clocked at 1200 MHz, with a GPU Boost frequency of 1455 MHz, and an HBM2 memory clock of 850 MHz, translating into 652.8 GB/s memory bandwidth. The card draws power from a 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include three DP and one HDMI connectors. The new TITAN V will come with a price tag of $2,999 and available exclusively through NVIDIA store.
