    +50% to 100% performance increase it looks like when compared to old titan. Doesn't excuse the price though.
    It's funny because some people bought a Titan Xp.

    Otoh, this would be an actual upgrade to my Maxwell Titan X, however fuck that price tag. Seriously, what is wrong with NVIDIA.
    The article specifically states that this is a supercomputing card that won't be very good at gaming, and I'm assuming you're using your Titan X for gaming, so would it really be a good upgrade?
    Not only for gaming. Doing gaming, CAD and computing on it (at least what I've done so far for my project which involves heavy computing/supercomputing).

    For a supercomputing/CAD card, the Titan V is dangerously close to Quadros in terms of pricing, that's my issue. The Titans so far have been closer to gaming cards in terms or pricing rather than CAD cards, so this is a disadvantage imho.



    Fact is NVIDIA has been murkier and murkier in terms of specs and product placement. The Maxwell Titan for example was neutered a bit compared to the previous one in terms of computing power but ended up being faster simply by being a newer generation. It's like they have people who are pulling different ways, somebody wanted them to be better than gaming cards for SC, others have inflated the price accordingly. Idk. Tbh I'd want one just to compare the speed difference for CAD and some of my projects tbh. Seeing I'm funding my project out of my pocket for some time now, it's becoming quickly unsustainable the more progress I make

    Fair enough. Rent time on cloud servers with multiple GPU cards for computing jobs? AWS has them AFAIK.

    Will be something to consider once the project needs that computing power. Until then I'd rather keep everything in-house.

    The GTX **80 TI has always been the better value card for rendering and CUDA related things. The lack of HBM2 memory on that thing was a bit of an eye opener.

    I wish OpenCL and high end AMD cards didn't suck.

    Best value will always be a render farm/small cluster, but I still need my workstation first then the rest.

    I'm studying feasibility into different solutions, it's quite interesting how services have evolved.
