or if you want to give them away - run a 3 names from the hat or a charity auction?
The pricing on GPUs is ridiculous right now, the 1080 is very inflated and without a counter from AMD the 1080ti will also be stratified to bits. And not even HBM2...damn.
Isn't the 1080/70 only $50 more than the release prices of the 980/70 though, not saying that's a good thing, just it seems the price increase is sort of in line with what we've seen in the past.
Up $200 on previous Titans. Are they just price gouging or is there a legit reason?
Just because they can, with no competition even close. Nvidia have dropped the 'GTX' prefix, for this Titan, so at least they aren't even pretending this card makes sense for gaming.
I'm pretty sure that the last one or two Titan generations didn't make sense for anything but gaming because they gimped the double floating operations on it (or whatever it is they have for pro work).
True - I've taken out the GTX from the article.
GTX is there: GeForce Titan X
IIRC MSRP in USD is up a bit from the 980/970 cards but the actual retail price (especially here in the UK) is all over the place.
I got my KFA2 GTX1070 for Â£370 which I thought was "ok" for the performance (Specifically VR performance) but as a technical range replacement for the 970 it has gone up quite a bit in price.
AMD also give a warning for gaming cards that it should not be used for science.
But I wonder if it's true, seeing they now have the opencompute and such standards that they surely can't have fail and then fall out of specs?
Plus with nvidia CUDA is used in professional software where it would also be odd if the output was inconsistent.
I recommend Anandtech's article about differences between GP100 and GP104.
Great, the answer is a mere 3 hours reading away...
The most important difference is in FP64. GP100 has 1 FP64 core for every 2 FP32 cores. GP104 has 1 FP64 for every 32 FP32.
Three hours reading is nothing, try Year One in Law school, lightweight!
