NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA) Shows Off Bleeding Edge $999 Titan X GPU

NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) has finally taken the wraps off its most advanced graphics processing unit yet, the $999 Titan X.

According to PC World, NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) CEO Jen-Hsun Huang personally demonstrated the capabilities of the new GPU from the chipmaker at the company’s GPU Technology Conference on Tuesday and by the looks of it, Titan X is a monster.

The new NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) Titan X card will feature 3,072 CUDA cores, 12GB of VRAM, can process 7 teraflops (single-precision floating point) and have a price tag that matches those figures. For comparison, the previous highest-end GPU from the company, the GeForce GTX 980 had “just” 2,048 CUDA cores.

In terms of computing, Huang said that a 16-core Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) Xeon processor would take 43 days to process data for a neural net analysis, PC World reports. The original GeForce Titan can perform the task in six days, last year’s GeForce Titan Black would need 5 days while the new Titan X can complete the task in 1.5 days.

NVIDIA, is NVDA a good stock to buy,

NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA)’s new graphics card has a 384-bit memory interface that transfers data at a maximum of 336.5GB/s or about 50% faster the GeForce GTX 980.

The Titan X is the first card from the graphics processor giant to sport the company’s GM200 core which has 8 billion transistors in a 28-nanometer die. For comparison, the original Nvidia Riva 128 GPU from the 1990s had just 4 million transistors.

However, PC World says that the card is more aimed at the gaming industry as its double-precision floating point performance is only at about 200 gigaflops. Compare that to the original GeForce Titan which can do 1,500 gigaflops for double-precision floating point.

The GeForce Titan X is now available.

Cliff Asness’ AQR Capital Management owned about 5.71 million NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) shares by the end of the last quarter of 2014. The stake increased 42% quarter over quarter.
