Nvidia launched a new desktop GPU today that’s designed to bring massive

amounts of power to people who are working on machine learning

applications.


														
							

The new Titan V card will provide customers with a Nvidia Volta chip that they can plug into a desktop computer.

According to a press release, the Titan V promises increased performance over its predecessor, the Pascal-based Titan X, while maintaining the same power requirements. The Titan V sports 110 teraflops of raw computing capability, which is 9X that of its predecessor.

It’s a chip that’s meant for machine learning researchers, developers, and data scientists who want to be able to build and test machine learning systems on desktop computers.

GPUs are good at executing the types of calculations needed to train a machine learning system, and Nvidia’s Volta architecture is designed to provide further performance boosts for those tasks.

While it’s possible to pay for time on Nvidia Volta-backed systems running in the cloud through Amazon Web Services researchers who want the convenience of running those workloads on a local machine could use the Titan V.

The Titan V is available starting today, so developers can begin building machine learning systems with them right away.
