The New NVIDIA Titan Xp is Here and it is Good!
More Extreme in Every Way: The New Titan Is Here – NVIDIA TITAN Xp
NVIDIA announced a new Pascal based graphics card today and kept their blog post short and sweet.

If you need all the power you can get, our new NVIDIA TITAN Xp is the card you need to have.
Introduced today, the Pascal-powered TITAN Xp pushes more cores, faster clocks, faster memory and more TFLOPS than its predecessor, the 2016 Pascal-powered TITAN X.
With the new TITAN Xp we’re delivering a card to users who demand the very best NVIDIA GPU, directly from NVIDIA and supported by NVIDIA.
- 12GB of GDDR5X memory running at 11.4 Gbps
- 3,840 CUDA cores running at 1.6GHz
- 12 TFLOPs of brute force
This is extreme performance for extreme users where every drop counts.
Open to Mac Community
Speaking of users, we’re also making the new TITAN Xp open to the Mac community with new Pascal drivers, coming this month. For the first time, this gives Mac users access to the immense horsepower delivered by our award-winning Pascal-powered GPUs.
TITAN Xp is available now for $1,200 direct from nvidia.com, and select system builders soon.

So, the real question is. How is this card different? If you pull up the Titan X and Titan Xp spec page(s) on Nvidia.com you can get a pretty good idea as to what changed. The orginial Titan X came with 3584 CUDA cores whereas the new Titan Xp comes with 3840 CUDA cores and an extra 50Mhz on the Boost Clock. Basically more cores and a bit of overclocking. Both cards come with 12GB of memory so, processing power FTW!
Sadly, and this is rather embarrassing to admit. At the time of the Pascal based Titan X launch there had already been a number of Titan cards including the Titan Z, Titan, Titan Black and now Titan X and Titan Xp. Somewhere in the shuffle I had remembered there was already a Titan X and just added a (p) to the end to denote the difference between the Maxwell Titan X and the Pascal based one.
It would seem I was just ahead of the curve and got confused with the marketing.
