So the GTX 1080 Ti’s reign as fastest graphics card was short lived. For about a month it was the fastest nvidia titan xp vs 1080 ti graphics card you could buy, but that honour has now been taken by the new Titan Xp. We knew it was coming, just like last year’s Titan X eclipsed the GTX 980 Ti, but whether or not you consider it a ‘consumer’ graphics card is another matter. In any case, the Titan Xp is here and we’re comparing it against the GTX 1080 Ti for specs and price.
699 if you’re in the US. 1200 Titan Xp certainly makes it look like good value. It’s only available direct from Nvidia at the moment but will shortly be on sale through various system builders as well. Check out our roundup of the best graphics cards to buy if you’re looking for an upgrade. Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti vs Titan Xp: Design and features Oddly, the new card looks identical to the old one, even down to the Titan X lettering — it doesn’t say Titan Xp. The main reason for the similarity is because, underneath, these are basically the same card, just tweaked. There’s still the same 12GB quantity as the old card though, and 1GB more than the GTX 1080 Ti.
Power requirements remain the same, and Nvidia says you need a minimum of a 600W PSU to run the card, the same for all three cards. Physically, the Xp has the same dimensions as the GTX 1080 Ti and Titan X at 267x111mm. Performance remains to be seen, but it will take the crown from the GTX 1080 Ti, which had already taken it from the 2016 Titan X. If you already have last year’s Titan X beating away in your PC, then you might be doubly annoyed that there are now two new, faster cards. But you can still rest easy in the knowledge you have one of the quickest cards around and there’s really no need to upgrade. I saw this on Tech Advisor and thought you should see it too.
