King’s on the Footprint: Nvidia Boasts Titan X Adapter

The much-anticipated release of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX Titan X graphics adapter has already come true. The new-comer employs the latest flagship GM200 GPU (Nvidia Maxwell architecture) that comprises 8 billion transistors, 24 SMM blocks (each includes 128 CUDA cores and 8 TMUs). As a result, the GPU consists of 3072 CUDA cores and 192 TMUs – a record-breaking layout. The amount of ROPs makes up 96.



Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X runs at 1000 MHz nominal frequency but might be overclocked to 1075 MHz frequency. Memory subsystem is compiled of 12 GB of GDDR5 modules which operate at 7010 MHz frequency. The bandwidth index of 384-bit bus approximates 336.5 Gb/sec.
