Nvidia unveils beastly Titan RTX card you probably can't afford

For those that have been balking at the $1900 price tag of the RTX 2080 Ti cards, you might want to look away now, as Nvidia has now topped that with the new $3,999 Titan RTX.

The Titan RTX will cost $2,500, which is over twice the price of the RTX 2080 Ti.

That said, the Titan RTX will still use the same GeForce drivers that power the GTX 20 series, 10 series, and so on.

72 Turing RT Cores, providing up to 11 GigaRays per second of real-time ray-tracing performance. And while that might be nearly a third cheaper than old mate Quadro RTX 6000 (it's over $11,000) - it ain't nothing. For gamers, that means the new Titan card will basically function like a souped up RTX 2080 Ti, while having fewer issues than the Titan V did with games. Pairing two Titan RTX cards via NVLink will scale both memory and compute performance. It's also got full-fat TU102 GPU, much like NVIDIA's $6,300 workstation-oriented Quadro RTX 6000, and has the same number of CUDA, Tensor and RT cores and identical 24GB of GDDR6 VRAM. Meanwhile, early problems plaguing the RTX 2080 Ti were confirmed to be caused by Nvidia inadvertently shipping defective cards from the factory. Next generation VR headsets are also catered for with the VirtualLink port. In theory that's up to a 21 percent performance advantage.

The diminishing returns going from the top consumer cards to the Titan options have always been poor, and the cards are more of a status symbol than something we would recommend buying.

The Titan RTX, which the company has nicknamed "T-Rex", builds off Nvidia's AI-boosted Turing graphics processor architecture that was announced in August, which prompted Nvidia partners to predict it would shake up gaming and workstation markets.

The RTX Titan certainly won't come cheap.
