TITAN X vs TITAN Xp Comparison Guide

These behemoths of the GPU world go head to head in the spec department.

If you’re into top-of-the-line PC gaming with a penchant for NVIDIA GPU’s, these last 12 months have seen the company release an incredibly powerful selection of products using its new Pascal architecture. The true giants have only surfaced this year though, with the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti arriving last month, surpassing the heavyweight performance of the TITAN X. So naturally NVIDIA had to bring out something new to head the lineup, coming in the form of the TITAN Xp. So how much more do you get? Well VRFocus has created a handy spec comparison guide to show you.

While the focus is on the TITAN X and the TITAN Xp graphic cards, with the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti providing the performance that it does – and at nearly half the price – it was worth including the card in this summary.

Comparing the two TITAN’s there’s a fairly reasonable improvement in performance in the eight months since the ‘X’ launched, with more CUDA cores and TFLOPS providing plenty of muscle for any virtual reality (VR) content thrown at it.

The new TITAN Xp card will also work in SLI when using NVIDIA’s bridge, although most VR content – and gamers – aren’t likely to need anywhere near that much power.

But comparing the TITAN’s together is one thing, when looking at the TITAN Xp and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti on the other hand those specifications are even closer. And while the TITAN Xp is certainly improving those numbers, they might not impress enough users to fork out the extra cash for the flagship model.
