NVIDIA reveals Titan Xp, billed as 'world's most powerful graphics card'

It looks like we can't jokingly call the Pascal GPU-based Titan X the "Titan XP" anymore, because Nvidia just rolled out a new version of its flagship graphics card that's officially dubbed "Titan Xp".

These specifications puts the Titan Xp at a higher core count, core speed, faster memory and more TFLOPs than the original 2016 Titan GPU which was powered by the same Pascal architecture.

The beast of a graphics card comes in at a price of $1,200 and is available direct from nvidia.com, and select system builders soon. This isn't surprising given last month's revelation that new specced up versions of the GTX 1080 sporting 11Gbps G5X memory will come following after the launch of the GTX 1080 Ti (which introduced the speedy memory).

Although overall performance is unlikely to be leaps and bounds ahead of the already monstrous 1080Ti, it could be (as Ars points out) that the Ti was simply too much of a smart buy when compared to the Titan X, and Nvidia felt the need to have a new, ultra-expensive top-tier card. The card packs in 12GB of GDDR5X memory running at 11.4 Gbps, and includes 3,840 Cuda cores running at 1.6GHz.

If you want to pick up a Titan Xp, they are available now and will arrive within one to three days, according to Nvidia.

The new Titan Xp will be priced once again at $1,200 making it still considerably more expensive than a GTX 1080Ti but with better on-paper performance. Given that the GTX 1080 Ti runs $699, that's quite a jump.
