Nvidia Titan V CEO Edition boasts 32 GB of HBM2 for neural nets

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang loves to take the world by surprise with new Titan cards in unexpected places, and yesterday was no different. At the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition conference running in Salt Lake City, Utah, Huang unveiled the Titan V CEO Edition. This beefed-up Volta card boasts 32 GB of HBM2 memory, a substantial boost from the Titan V's 12 GB of stacked RAM.

That pool of memory suggests the CEO Edition Titan V is using the same Volta package underneath its shroud as the Quadro GV100 launched back in March. Since such a card would have to have its full complement of memory controllers enabled to reach four stacks of HBM2 over a 4096-bit bus, the CEO Edition can likely push 128 ROP pixels per clock, up from the 96 of the initial Titan V and its 3072-bit bus. The larger pool of HBM2 memory is likely to be a boon for deep-learning researchers who have large data sets to crunch but don't need the NVLink interconnect or professional drivers of the Quadro card.

The full Volta V100 GPU. Imagine four SMs lopped off for shipping V100 products

Nvidia gave away 20 of these cards to researchers at the conference and didn't announce general availability, so getting one will apparently require being chosen by Huang himself for the foreseeable future. Indeed, the company says that the 20 recipients at CVPR “won't be the last to be so honored.” Nvidia also describes this card as a limited edition, so between the extra cache and cachet, any generally available version is likely to be even pricier than the $3000 the first Titan V commands—somewhere between that figure and the $9000 sticker of the Quadro GV100. We'll keep our eyes peeled for a product page and price tag.

    1,000 times as much RAM as the Geforce 256.

    What are the frame rates in Quake 3 Arena playing at an 8k resolution?

      Probably extremely high. I played the entirety of Quake: Scourge of Armagon in VKQuake at 3840×2160 with 4x super-sampling—effectively 8K resolution. Framerates were still in the high triple digits. GPU was an MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X in OC mode.

    Nvidia should do a giveaway and ask for submissions of your most impressive flexing of biceps.

      Got an Nvidia tattoo?
      We’ve got a GPU for you!

    How about a Chuck Norris edition? A GPU so fast it never becomes outdated. And on the lower end of the spectrum, a Leeroy Jenkins edition for old games that never die.

      You don’t pay for a Chuck Norris GPU. A Chuck Norris GPU pays for you.

    Another Titan model with the same name. I dub thee Titan V(v).

I'd like to announce the [b<]NEW AMD TRADE-UP PROGRAM![/b<] We'll give you one... no wait the mining market is collapsing... make that TWO of our superior Vega 64 cards if you just trade-in that stupid V100 that doesn't even support FreeSync!

      AMD does have the Vega 20 chip just on the horizon. Not sure how much of an upgrade that’d be over a regular Vega chip (same ALU count reportedly, maybe more cache and ROPs?) but it would be a unique desktop offering. But hey, we’re in the era of collectible and limited edition hardware.

        This Titan V would make the Vega 20 look like a kids toy.

          • chuckula
          • 1 year ago

          Even AMD’s own projections put the Vega 20 at about +35% from a workstationized Vega 64 (like the Vega Frontier edition).

          I’m not disagreeing but Vega 20 looks to be a workstation/server only part and skip mainstream consumers entirely. More of a commentary of the uniqueness of swapping a limited edition/collector’s product for an equally limited/collector’s part.

        Mr Founder CEO has his product after three people:

        One for each gaming rig. There is something perverse about having 96 GB of VRAM though.
