NVIDIA Titan Xp is the new graphics card champ

Published

on

Don’t mind the silly emoticon in its name; NVIDIA’s latest graphics-processing behemoth truly is a titan.

The Titan Xp is the follow-up to last year’s regular Titan X, and as you’d hope for, it delivers noteworthy upgrades across the board.

For the specs nerds, it has 3,840 CUDA cores (up from 3,584 in last year’s model), 12 TFLOPs of “brute force,” and 12GB of GDDR5X memory running at a slightly faster 11.4Gbps compared to the 10Gbps from before.

With that, it’s officially more powerful than the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which beat the previous Titan when it was launched last month. The only catch here is it’s priced like rare jewelry, tagged at $1,200. For comparison, the GTX 1080 Ti costs $699.

It’s clear the Titan series continues to exist merely as bragging rights for NVIDIA. But it’s not like the manufacturer has to even try; its sole competitor, AMD, hasn’t released any graphics cards that match NVIDIA’s current crop of high-end products.

While this launch was bound to happen sooner or later, the more important news that accompanied this was the announcement of macOS support. Yes, Apple-based computers will soon have compatible software drivers to run NVIDIA’s latest Pascal architecture-powered graphics cards.

One more thing: Each customer is limited to buying only two units at a time. Either NVIDIA is short on stock, or the company is trying to prevent people from overspending. Insert appropriate emoticon: ヽ(`Д´)ノ

There are a total of five new server types announced, which will all support liquid cooling heat dissipation, high-density computing power, mass storage, and better flexibility and reliability:

  • 5200 G5 high-density server
  • R5300 G5 full-scenario universal server
  • R5500 G5 mass storage server
  • R6500 G5 heterogenous computing power server
  • R8500 G5 high-performance server

Extreme performance

The G5 series servers have the latest Intel Xeon 4th gen scalable processors which have up to 120 cores in 2 sockets. They will also support Intel Optane persistent memory 300 series (Crow Pass).

The R6500, in particular, has a built-in 10-to-20 computing intelligent acceleration engine which tries to achieve the best combination of computing power for various scenarios.

The servers may also be flexibly expanded. The R5300, for instance, provides many disk positions and high-speed I/O interfaces.

Additionally, the servers have a bandwidth design of 32 DDR5 memory slots. PCIe 5.0 improves bandwidth by 150% while bandwidth performance is also boosted by 50%.

HP CES 2023

At CES 2023, HP has revealed its newest gaming devices: the OMEN 17 laptop and the OMEN 40L and OMEN 25L desktops.

Both these gaming powerhouses are powered by up to 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900K series processors. They also have NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics for 4K visuals.

All new OMEN devices also utilize HP’s OMEN Tempest Cooling Technology. Meanwhile, the OMEN 17 will be the first to feature optical mechanical keys. These are 25 times faster than traditional laptop keyboards.

Meanwhile, the visual experience is about to be taken to new heights further, with HP’s new E-series G5 monitors which range from the 21.5 to 44.5-inch sizes and are all capable of displaying 4K seamlessly.

The HP E45c G5, in particular, is the world’s first QHD dual curved monitor which showcases a super ultrawide Virtual Dual Display feature.

Essentially, there is just one extra-long monitor instead of two monitors which need to be combined side-by-side to create the ultimate gaming setup.

The M24h and M27h FHD monitors also provide upgraded experiences while coming with improved ergonomics to tailor fit users’ postures and viewing angles.

Poly Voyager Free 60 series

When it comes to accessories, headlining the list is the Poly Voyager Free 60 series wireless earbuds.

It supports up to 24 hours of total playtime on a full charge. Everything is made a breeze too through the Poly Lens mobile app for customizing settings.

For other accessories, there’s the HP 620/625 FHD webcam for Zoom-ready looks on a 1080p camera. It has built-in dual noise-reduction microphones and video features like auto-focus and AI face framing.

The HP 710 rechargeable silent mouse also allows users to work seamlessly. Its compact design features six programmable buttons for 20 custom shortcuts.

Hybrid-fit laptops: Dragonfly, Elite series

Lastly, HP has unveiled the new Dragonfly G4, EliteBook 1040 G10, and Elite x360 1040 G10. These productivity laptops shall benefit users who work in remote setups, physical office spaces, or a combination of both.

All powered by the latest gen processors in the market, here are some of the distinct new features:

  • Multi-Camera Experience: The laptops support dual video streams and camera switching. With it,  users can easily show both themselves and an object or keyboard at the same time, picture-in-picture or side-by-side.
  • Auto Camera Select: Since there are two cameras on each device, this feature uses intelligent face tracking to recognize which camera a user is facing for uninterrupted virtual eye contact.
  • HP Be Right Back: This will enable users to change their video feed to a still feature when taking a break, without having to steal the attention from meetings
  • Intelligent Hibernate, Smart Sense: As users begin to work on their PCs regularly, these study their patterns to optimize performance and even predict what’s next.
