    The NVIDIA Titan RTX is a $2500 video card that's outfitted with 24GB of GDDR6, making it most suitable for VRAM-limited tasks on something with RTX 2080 Ti performance. That's really what we're working with, here: If you've wanted a 2080 Ti for some sort of production workload, like CUDA-accelerated rendering, but would be bound by 11GB GDDR6, the Titan RTX would be the alternative. People are still going to buy it for gaming and enthusiast use, though, and so we focused our initial testing on overclocking, gaming, power consumption, and thermals. The Titan RTX will not be made by board partners and is an NVIDIA-only part but, as we saw in our tear-down, it's just a 2080 Ti PCB. This means you could somewhat easily install a 2080 Ti cooler onto the Titan RTX, the "somewhat" mostly being that you'd need to find a 2080 Ti cooler. Waterblocks would work.

There was an article today from NDTV at http://gadgets.ndtv.com/games/news/nvidia-titan-v-supports-real-time-ray-tracing-in-battlefield-v-with-no-rt-cores-report-1971503 stating that the older Titan V supports ray tracing. I've never heard of this site before but was curious how valid that report was. Is Nvidia's claim that RT Cores are required for Ray Tracing actually valid or is it just a rename of older tech to support the price increases for these newer generation cards?

Nice review. But is there a possibility to test the VR performance? It is hard to find any reviews comparing one/two RTX 2080 TIs vs. one/two RTX Titan within VR. Especially thirsty simulations like XPlane, DCS World or even Assetto Corsa / Project Cars I wonder if the VRam helps any for VR, since on my Oculus Rift and HTC Vive PRO the VRAM on my 1080 TI and now 2080 Ti is always maxed out...

Wondering why you didnt add a 'Nvlink(SLI) 2080' in there? You have everything else, like 1080 TI SLI, Nvlink 2080 ti. Are you just assuming, and expecting everyone else to know, that the 1080 ti and 2080 Nvlink/SLI pretty much the same? I am very curious why they arent in there. I have 2 2080's Nvlink'ed, and lately there seem to be some tweaks and my performance has been jumping pretty dang high in games, as opposed to previous early drivers and os updates. Not nit-picking, just wondering why there arent any 2080's in sli in this VERY well represented video card(s) review. Thanks.

So let's get this straight. You received a defective unit that would not boost? At $2500 you would think that Nvidia would up their quality control. It's bad enough to get a faulty unit for a fifth of that spend but its basically unforgivable at that price point. Not a single defective unit should leave the factory at that price. Completely unacceptable.

So NVlink only shares card memory or uses the memory on both cards essentially doubling memory on Titan RTX and all RTX Quadro cards but does not - DOES NOT share memory on the RTX 2080ti and under lower end cards, right? That s what I understood from Peugeot Systems. Please clarify the memory usage on NVlink.

Nvidia shares have plunged recently, off the back of an utterly disastrous fiscal Q3. from 283-down to 100 per share Nvidia: Headed For $100 The weakening cryptocurrency market, previously downplayed by management, had a very real effect on revenue, and the inventory issues created by mismanagement will have a material effect over the coming quarters. Coupled with slowing datacenter growth, a downturn in the overall chip space, and high powered competition (AMD, Intel, in-house), the Nvidia bull thesis is flawed. The stock may not have significant upside catalyst until 2H of calendar 2019, when Nvidia is expected to fully work through its inventory reset. By this time, the stock markets and global economy may be increasingly volatile. Without fundamental upside catalysts, slowing growth, and increased competition, the stock likely has more room to fall. Nvidia's stock remains a no-fly zone. Slashing PT from $232 to $100.

Morgan Stanley says the gaming performance of Nvidia's latest graphics card is below its expectations. In August, Nvidia announced its new eighth-generation Turing graphics architecture. Technology media outlets published reviews on the company's first gaming cards based on the new chips Wednesday morning. "As review embargos broke for the new gaming products, performance improvements in older games is not the leap we had initially hoped for," Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore said in a note to clients on Thursday. "Performance boost on older games that do not incorporate advanced features is somewhat below our initial expectations, and review recommendations are mixed given higher price points." Nvidia shares closed down 2.1 percent Thursday. Moore noted that Nvidia's new RTX 2080 card performed only 3 percent better than the previous generation's 1080Ti card at 4K resolutions. "We are surprised that the 2080 is only slightly better than the 1080ti, which has been available for over a year and is slightly less expensive," he said. "With higher clock speeds, higher core count, and 40% higher memory bandwidth, we had expected a bigger boost." As a result he expects the adoption of Nvidia's new products to be "slower" and doesn't expect "much upside" from the company's gaming business in its next two financial quarters. Despite the disappointment, Moore reiterated his overweight rating and $273 price target for Nvidia shares due to the company's strong long-term technology position.

I love the content you're doing (best in the biz IMHO), except one thing - your graphs are terrible :( They could use some clarity, like distinguishing between stock and OC models (maybe separate graphs for OC?), use some color coding (AMD/NVIDIA), better labeling of GPUs (type is more important than brand), bigger fonts sizes and overall reduction in clutter. That would be awesome ;) Thanks for all you're doing and happy holidays.

I noticed you used a lot of games that are friendlier to Nvidia. Then at 15:02 when you show power draw you use a "heavily modded Vega 56" to make AMD look worse on power draw. Yes you say the power of the Vega card is normally 350 but the graph is what will stick in peoples minds not your words. It is not what you say but how you say it. RTX is junk and this video is biased, again. Wonder why there just happened to be a representative "in the area" that was glad to swap you cards.

Somebody once told me that Titans are meant for Machine learning. Then why did AMD build a dual GPU card (HD 7990) to compete with the "GTX Titan" AKA the first Titan. It's odd. If you look at the last few generations of AMD GPUs, they are only really powerful (competitive with Nvidia's top products) when AMD builds a Dual GPU card. It seems AMD only really cares for the lower end to mid range market. Perhaps AMD will become like Chevrolet and Nvidia like Chrysler. One for the common man and one for the rich.

Steve - just a heads up you were right that a 3MO shunt resistor works. I tested mine yesterday and it boosts fine with those - all stock settings mine boosted to 1920mhz in Timespy during my testing, and held stable 1870mhz + barring slight thermal dip since it was passing 80C which of course dropped the clock a bit. Soon as my water cooling leak is dry I'll do some water-cooled testing with 2 in NVLink SLI.

What's hillarious about the increased RAM is it's already not enough for pro video workloads (and Premiere isn't really pro, I'm talking about what movie studios use). Studios are in the process of moving up to Quadro RTX 8000 or GV 100 because Flame even with 4K work is using a lot of VRAM, while the 8K loads now becoming more common are close to exceeding the 24GB in the M6000 being used at the moment. The double whammy though is that without any recompilation to exploit the Tensor/AI cores, there won't be much of a general performance increase.

Great video although im sad to see no comparison to the titan v due to its 80 SMs resulting in about a 500 cuda 'core' bump over the Trex. Being as theyre similar ish architectures seeing hbm2 vs gddr6 in professional workloads. Obviously the point of this product stack is the RT cores so this definitely has its spot over the V but if you can maybe youll put it into the professional testing video

340Hz I did the same with my 970. Except at RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 review embargo lift, I read a few reviews and then bought a new 1080 Ti (for less than $600, because the box I was going to recycle anyway was damaged 😁). Glad I did because the market sucks now. Hopefully AMD and Intel's new GPUs in 2019 and 2020 actually have a high end to compete with cards like the 2080 and 2080Ti. AMD has been letting us down for years which is why Nvidia can get away with it.

You're not. As someone with a 970, I waited out the Pascal generation (no need to upgrade every generation, particularly with mining prices), and now would be a good time for an upgrade. But for these prices, and when RTX isn't widely implemented? Nah, don't think so.
