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.
- 576 multi-precision Turing Tensor Cores, providing up to 130 teraflops of deep learning performance
