A Quick Look at Nvidia’s Titan X Pascal

The Titan X Pascal is any gamer’s dream. We give you a rundown of all its features to find out if this Titan X reincarnation is worth a purchase.

PC gaming just got even better with the release of Nvidia’s new graphics card: the Titan X powered by Pascal. This new generation of graphics card has been described as “the ultimate GPU” due to its faster memory. The biggest twist is that Nvidia is not aiming this new graphics card for the hardcore gamers; it is a product designed as a professional series for deep learning.

Priced at $1200, this new generation of graphic cards brings about innovative gaming technology and a virtual reality experience unlike any other. With the Pascal architecture, the Titan X provides you with the technology to accomplish things you only see possible in dreams.

DESIGN

Slick and black—just like what a luxury sports car would be. The Titan X Pascal is designed with excellence in mind. Its die-cast aluminum body, along with the improved vapor chamber cooling technology, provides excellent heat dissipation. Its body design matches what it promises: industry-leading performance.

The card is dual-slot. The fan, however, is outfitted to take in air from the PC and direct it outside the unit. This improves air flow without the accompanying noise. You can even check the aluminum fins of the heatsink through the cooler’s Plexiglass.

SPECS

Nvidia talks about the Titan X Pascal as “The biggest GPU ever built”, and for good reasons. The first on the list are the specs. The next Titan X Pascal brings us more hardware than the previous Titan X Maxwell. For one, the Titan X Pascal has 3584 CUDA cores and a 1.54 GHZ boost clock, which means it is faster than its predecessor. It is also 1,000 CUDA cores greater than the GTX 1080 that uses the same Pascal architecture from Nvidia.

Memory is not a problem for the new Titan X Pascal. This unit has 12GB GDDR5X memory, providing it with great memory bandwidth. This ensures memory will not be a hindrance in gaming.  

PERFORMANCE

The Titan X Pascal delivers what technophiles expected: quality performance. As Nvidia discloses, their new graphics card offers 60 percent more performance than its Titan X predecessor. With the specs looking good, it is safe to assume that the Titan X Pascal will be able to load and play some of the top game titles today—we’re looking at high settings with 60 frames per second at 4k resolution.

When it comes to power, the Titan X Pascal uses the same 250 watts as that of the previous versions.

Nvidia’s Titan X Pascal is simply a new dream come true for some PC gamers. The many features of the Titan X Pascal are enough to justify if it is a worthy purchase.

The unit has been released last August 2 in North America and Europe, and will be available to Asia soon. Nvidia sells it directly on their site, but the product might also be available in select system builders. Until then, we can all just sit back and wait on how this new graphics card will turn out for the entire market.
