Nvidia claims Titan RTX is the “world’s most powerful desktop GPU”

Nvidia claims its newly announced TITAN RTX is the world’s most powerful desktop GPU. It’s said to offer “massive” performance for AI and creative software.

Being dubbed T-Rex, the GPU uses the NVIDIA Turing architecture. Also, it offers 130 teraflops of performance and features 11 GigaRays of ray-tracing performance.

“Turing is NVIDIA’s biggest advance in a decade – fusing shaders, ray tracing, and deep learning to reinvent the GPU,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “The introduction of T-Rex puts Turing within reach of millions of the most demanding PC users — developers, scientists and content creators.”

What does it do for content creators?

The TITAN RTX essentially brings real-time ray tracing and AI to your creative applications. It’s also powerful enough to handle real-time 8K video editing. It works with 8K RAW files natively on the timeline without pre-caching or generating proxies.
