    Someone has to start this thread!

    I don't plan to get one myself but a variety of factors could change that. For one, on one of my two gaming rigs, I play at a resolution of 7960x1600 and have found that SLI can be a little weird for surround gaming nowadays, so am interested in obtaining the single most powerful GPU I can. The 1080 Ti I currently have installed plays all the games I want to play at reasonable frame rates bar one, and the performance increase could tip it.

    Anyways, I would really like to know if any members here have plans to get one on launch, and would love to see performance at 4K, or even 8K as I'm also thinking of getting the lovely Dell 8K monitor at some point and forgoing surround gaming. I imagine @Kaapstad and @venturi may be eyeing up a couple...or more!

    NVIDIA Titan RTX has the BAD ideal for gaming but good ideal for AI researchers and data scientists.
    95%~98% of people gaming can't buy any Titan RTX due to be too high expensive.

    We remember Titan RTX is same price to nVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 (top end workstation card in 2004 and same performance to nVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra). ;)

    This thread is much, much less important than non-Titan (GTX 1080, RTX 2080...) threads lol

    Hi there

    If price of RTX Titan has been in £1200-£1500 range I would get one for sure, but sorry for £2500 I simply pass

    24GB is nice framebuffer for rendering, because as now 11-12GB is for me bit limiting and what I have seen NVLink does work in Octane where you doubling VRAM framebuffer with two same GPUs

    I know few guys who will be getting RTX Titan, they're mostly be using them for rendering etc

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Yeah. We know. Some people will still be able to afford it though for gaming purposes, or will use it for gaming when not doing serious stuff.
    Well, if they do, please post links to their results!

    The titan RTX has no reason for existing, it is inferior to the Titan V.

    No it is superior to titan v except double precision fp64. If you don't use this feature titan v is a shame in comparison.

    Nop , not getting one , and i would never support that rape of a price video card for gaming even if at 8K. It's like telling nvidia that is ok to charge this outrageous amount of money for a video card to play games. If it was for AI neural professional work i understand , but even then it is way overpriced. Mind you i can buy 2 or more of them if i wish at any time but i refuse to support this greedy behaviour nvidia has been displaying for the last couple of years with the Titans and Founders Editions. Please send a message to nvidia that this is not ok to keep upping the prices every new generation of video cards , plain and simple vote smart , vote with your wallet !

    Ughhhhh.

    Okay, let's try this again.

    This thread is for people who are going to get the RTX Titan, or know where to get benchmarks in a range of programmes. Because, as an enthusiast, I'm curious.

    We all know it's an expensive thing, but there are people who will be able to afford it regardless.

    Ahah! Initial performance figures:



    A mixed bag. Don't forget that drivers will be unoptimised too. Looking at 4K results and cherry picking a result, RotTR shows a 20% increase. Hopefully this'll roll out to updated drivers for other titles.

    Νο, it won't happen as you imagine..RTX2080Ti will also get the performance improvements.

    Actually I'm skipping this card.

    I won't bore you with technical reasons why it is an inferior card (rtx) compared to the quadro or Titan V, but it is. Let me answer the next question honestly and satisfy both camps:

    The Titan RTX is a better card for those folks with middle grade or well configured system. (One cpu, less than 128GB of ram and no plans on having more than 1 or 2 video cards). It is a better card for pure gaming and is better if the person is the type that does every windows upgrade and isn't old school privacy concerns, etc) and does not do any strange configurations or anything other than gaming at LESS than 4K resolutions - and does not turn on max eye candy at that resolution. Its for the kind of person that uses the GeForce experience and does very little "tweaking". For that person the RTX series is better than the Titan V. The titan V has features and power that person would never turn on (sorta like only having the valet key to a car).

    The titan V is a better card if you plan on being at 4k with full eye candy. It is better for rigs with 3 or 4 cards. It is better for machines that can "feed" the cards all they need. It is better for folks that actually setup in the bios of the board: cache on die, maximum payload, maximum read request, MMIOH base, MMIO High Size, MMCFG Base, early snoop, late snoop, home, numa zones, SR-IOV, etc. If you are that person THEN the titav V is a better card for you than the rtx.

    The titan V is WASTED on a system where none of the other important configs are not done. The titain V is a prosumer card.

    I have Titan V CEO 32Gb and Titan V Cards, etc so I only have real hardware and software to base my observations on.

    Very jealous! Let me know if/when you intend to get rid of it as I'd love to play with one!

    Useless for 99% of people, but the 1% will buy it.

    I'm more interested in 7nm 3080 Ti.

    I have done some upgrading since the prototype build

    I tried 4 rtx titans, but on my rig the titan v was a better performer. The T-rex is a great card, I just like the titan v better.

    Standard Titan V I agree as it's 5120 CUDA cores are choked by only 96 ROPs in FP32.

    V100 (Titan V CEO Edition) is WAY faster than RTX Titan in FP32 though, 128 ROPS and the 1TB/s memory bandwidth remove all the bottlenecks.

    Sadly it will set you back $4000 used with no warranty...
