There is a distinct category of PC users that absolutely revel every time a piece of powerful hardware is introduced to the market. With the introduction of NVIDIA’s Titan XP, these users have a brand new reason to be excited again. Part of NVIDIA’s high-end Titan series of graphic chips, the Titan XP is looking to claim the crown in the graphics department for its own.

Let the specs roll in

There are a few differences between the new Titan XP and the last card which was considered the best around, the GTX 1080 Ti. For starters, the Pascal architecture that Titan XP boasts a total of 12GB RAM where the 1080 Ti only features 11GB. Both memory modules are GDDR5X. The new card also features a total of 3840 Cuda cores while the previous featured a total of 3584. While still impressive, it’s technically inferior to the Titan XP.

Its price is a big deal

The Titan XP’s price is the biggest factor in its release. Compared to the $700 1080 Ti, the newly released Titan XP costs $1200, making it a hard purchase for some consumers to stomach. It seems that absolute power and performance come at a hefty cost.

In the end, it’s up to the user to decide whether or not the kind of activities they engage in need the extra kick offered by the Titan XP graphics card. Depending on the answer to that question, upgrading from a 1080 Ti can be a great idea — or more of a luxury purchase.
