Nvidia Titan V Specifications - Is it worth $3,000?

There is a lot of GPU here, but is it a worthy addition to the Titan series?



Read more on Nvidia's Titan V GPU.

Is it twice as fast as a XP? then no.

I also worry about the cooler, given it wasn't even adequate for an XP. Volta is supposedly very hot.

I'm quite interested in it's machine learning/deep learning capabilities considering that's what it was really built for, Would be very interesting to see a program take full advantage of it and see it working in real time.

I wonder if one of these could successfully utilize the new 4K 144Hz displays coming out, By that I mean full eye candy in a game like Crysis 3 at 4K with FPS beyond 100 or even 60.

I surpose the way to look at this announcement is that now they have done this for the professional end of the market, that the volta based gpu's for us mear mortals is coming closer in the future. But who really knows with Nvida

The GeForce variant may not even launch, They may go straight to Ampere like the "leaks" suggest.

Also this -

Quote:
While this GPU can be used with Geforce gaming drivers, this product is not designed for gamers, offering AI specific features that go unused while under traditional gaming workloads. Nvidia's new Tensor cores are the main selling point of this new graphics product, so if you don't already know what these additional cores deliver, it is safe to say that this is not the graphics processor for you.
Anyone buying it for gaming, Best of luck to them if they do, Is wasting so so so much in the way of raw horsepower as a big chunk of the card will simply not be used, Hence why I think Nvidia may well skip Volta GeForce cards like the leaks suggest.

If you truly need it then YES it is worth the money. We can't argue the price because there is no alternative. AMD can't beat 3 year old architecture, which is just tuned Maxwell, and that makes it even older, and nVidia can charge you what they want. If you need it you will buy it.

Example:

I don't do video editing, but i do music and music production. The best CPU on the World at the moment for music production is 7980XE. No Xeon can beat it. It is the way music software works. If i was investing in serious production studio that would be the CPU i would go for, and 3000 Euro sound card (yes they exist). So for me 7980XE would be worth the money. Because i would need it, and there is no alternative. It is twice the price, but it is 2x faster than Threadripper in music production tasks. It demolishes AMD so hard that there is no competition. So Intel can charge me as much as they want because i can't buy other CPU.
