Nvidia’s powerful new Pascal Titan X is not for gaming

Nvidia Pascal Titan X

Although Nvidia’s new Pascal version of the Titan X GPU is powerful, it is not built for gaming.

Despite being labelled as “the world’s most powerful graphics card” on the GeForce website, the Pascal Titan X is primarily aimed at FP32 and INT8 compute, not gaming, AnandTech reports.

The graphics card is aimed at the “prosumer” market, although it still features a record-breaking amount of graphics processing power.

The card features a massive 12GB of GDDR5X memory and 3,584 stream processors at 1.53GHz, delivering a quoted 11 TFLOPS of peak compute performance.

This does not mean that gaming is impossible on the Nvidia Titan X, as the graphics card is still set to deliver a major boost in gaming performance over the GeForce GTX 1080.

It is important to note that Nvidia may decide to release a GeForce-branded GP102 graphics card in the future, delivering similar gaming performance to the Titan X while lowering its INT8 compute capabilities in order to sell the product at a more reasonable price.

The new Nvidia Titan X is priced at $1,200 and is set to release on 2 August 2016.
