Nvidia Pascal Titan X will not feature faster FP64 or FP16 performance

 

The original GTX Titan GPU had a unique characteristic that made it popular for more than just gaming, it had support for Double Precision, FP64, compute, allowing people to access some huge amounts of compute performance at a price that is much lower than Nvidia's Tesla or Quadro GPUs. 

With the release of the Maxwell Titan X that changed, with the Titan X having the same Double precision compute scaling/ rates as their GTX Gaming counterparts, taking away the attractive budget compute properties of the Original GTX Titan. 

Now Nvidia has confirmed that the Pascal GTX Titan X will not feature increased FP64 and FP16 rates over GP104, making the Titan X an Ultra-powerful Gaming GPU and nothing more. While the Pascal GTX Titan X will offer best in class gaming performance when it launches, it will still come in at an eye-watering price of $1200 and leave the budget FP64 compute crowd without the "old style" Titan of their dreams. 

 

Nvidia announce Pascal Powered GTX Titan X

 

Below are the specification of Nvidia's Pascal Titan X compared to their GTX 1080 and other Pascal powered GPUs. The GTX Titan X will come with 12 GB of GDDR5X VRAM and over 1000 more CUDA cores than the GTX 1080, though they will come with lower clock speeds.

It seems that Nvidia has decided to build separate compute and gaming GPUs this generation, building GP100 for high-performance computing with NVLink support and several other compute-focused features while GP102 focuses solely on gaming performance.

No increase in memory capacity means I can't see a lot of people using Octane, Vray RT etc upgrading, they will just try and just grab second hand Maxwell Titan X's. Bit of a missed opportunity all round for me.Quote

I don't think this paints an accurate picture of all TITAN X use cases. Plenty of users access TITAN X compute without the double precision. To say it's nothing more than a gaming GPU is disingenuous at worst.Quote

30% performance increase over a 1080 for twice the amount a 1080 costs, No FP performance over a 1080 and not even the fully enabled GP102 chip, Yep, That's a pass from me.Quote

The Titan X lives on. Not good.Quote

Don't expect a full GP102 chip. That's reserved for HPC and other higher profitable markets. Hence the newly announced Quadro P6000 which is the full GP102 core.Quote
