Nvidia’s Titan RTX is now available to purchase 

It’s finally here, Nvidia’s RTX Titan is now available, delivering purchasers their Turing TU102 core in its full glory, offering more CUDA cores, higher clock speeds and boosted memory capacity/bandwidth when compared to the RTX 2080 Ti. 

With a price tag of £2,399 in the UK and $2,499 in the US, the Geforce Titan RTX ships with a 2x price increase over the RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition, packing a 4% boost in listed boost clock speeds, a 5.8% increase in CUDA core count and a 9% boost in memory bandwidth. Combining this with the Titan RTX’s 24GB frame buffer delivers Nvidia’s most powerful graphics card to date, at least for the “gaming” market (The Titan V offers a lot more double precision compute performance). 

When compared to the RTX 2080 Ti, the Titan RTX ships with a similar cooler design that packs golden colouration, matching Nvidia’s Volta-based Titan V. Outside of its performance, the selling points of the Titan RTX is its large 24GB frame buffer and the pseudo workstation qualities that the Titan series is known for, offering a lot of value to select users.

Nvidia's Titan RTX is now available to purchase

With a price tag of £2,399, it is easy to say that this graphics card is well beyond the price range of most gamers, with two Geforce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition graphics cards costing less at £2,198. That said, the RTX 2080 Ti was already well beyond the reach of most gamers, making the Titan RTX seem more like a joke than a serious product for the gaming market.
