  • NVIDIA reveals Titan Xp billed as'world's most powerful graphics card

The Titan Xp will nearly certainly supplant the Titan X, which itself was viciously undercut by the GTX 1080Ti, which offered similar performance for half the price - Nvidia no doubt felt it ought to offer something a bit more at the top-end of the consumer graphics card market. All of it can be attributed to the Pascal GP102 GPU that it comes with, as does the 3,840 CUDA cores operating at 1.6 GHz that the chip offers. At the top end was last year's Titan X, for those who were willing to shell out $1,000 for a card that wasn't quite as state-of-the-art as it was in 2016.

The Titan Xp is an upgrade to the 2016 Titan X "Pascal" (confusingly sometimes also known as the "Titan XP") and is available now on the Nvidia store for £1159.

The other reason why the Nvidia announcement is interesting: The company confirmed to 9to5Mac that all of its Pascal-based graphics card will have Mac-compatible drivers.

The new card re-establishes Titan as NVIDIA's flagship, pushing back that usurper, the GTX 1080i.

Russian Federation still has several dozen warplanes and batteries of air defense missiles at its base near Latakia, Syria. Igor Konashenkov said the USA was informed that Russian Federation would "suspend its obligations" at midnight Saturday.

If you put together a Hackintosh, you can use any Pascal-based Nvidia graphics card and be the envy of your Mac Pro-using buddies. Nvidia is promising the drivers this month.

While this will provide a huge boost to gaming, these kinds of graphics cards will also improve the capabilities of Macs as video- and photo-editing machines. The things that remain the same are the memory, which is 12GB of GDDR5X RAM, physical dimensions, and power requirements.

Regarding the release date of the NVIDIA Titan Xp GPU, nothing much has been revealed. Those specs make it comparable to the the recently announced GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which is a consumer card designed primarily for gaming. The last Apple desktops with user-accessible PCIe slots were the 2010 Mac Pros with Intel Westmere Xeons.
