Nvidia has launched the recently teased Titan RTX, which it variously refers to as "The Titan of Turing" and "T-Rex". While the RTX 2080 (or any of the graphics cards in the GeForce RTX line) will probably be good enough for a lot of gamers, the TITAN RTX is meant more for AI research and folks working on deep learning projects.
The NVIDIA TITAN RTX is slated for availability a little later this month, both in the USA and in the EU.
In the wee hours of this morning NVIDIA officially announced its mammoth new graphics card, the Titan RTX. Huang added, more specifically, that "The introduction of T-Rex puts Turing within reach of millions of the most demanding PC users - developers, scientists and content creators".
Labeled "the world's most powerful desktop GPU", it sports 72 Turing RT and 4,608 CUDA cores - outperforming the RTX 2080 Ti, which offers 68 and 4,352 respectively.
576 multi-precision Turing Tensor Cores, providing up to 130 teraflops of deep learning performance.
Whether your workloads consist of AI, real-time ray-traced graphics, next-gen virtual reality and high performance computing, Nvidia is positioning the TITAN RTX as the ideal solution.

The TITAN RTX also integrates with Nvidia's RAPIDS open-source libraries to speed up machine learning workflows.
But here's the kicker, the new Titan is paired with 24GB GDDR6 memory at 672GB/s of bandwidth, significantly faster than the previous Titans.
On paper, then, it looks like the Titan RTX will be a very solid performer, but we'll have to wait until we get our hands on one to see if it justifies that incredibly high price tag.
The Titan RTX graphics card will be available in both the United States and Europe later this month for $2,499.
Incredible performance and memory bandwidth for real-time 8K video editing.
