During the weekend, Nvidia has committed itself to a social media marketing campaign to make tuners turn to an upcoming RTX Titan graphics card. The Hype-building exercise involves social media "influencers" that insert Nvidia RTX Titan hardware and / or packaging somewhere in their shared pictures or videos, something more subtle than others.
Saturday, VideoCardz sent three such RTX Titan observations; from such as Linus Tech Tips (YouTube video), Andrew Ng and Gavin Free. Scouring Twitter, the trio seems to have recently been featured in YouTuber JayzTwoCents (YouTube video) and musician DeadMau5 .
Current thinking about the most important hardware specifications that can be offered with RTX Titan is; a full Turing TU102 GPU (with 4 608 CUDA cores, 288 TMUs, 96 ROPs, plus 576 Tensor cores and 72 RT cores), with 12GB of GDDR6 memory. The limited details we can see from the various "leaks" include the two 8-pin power supplies and the LED-backed Titan logo.
Looking at the RTX Titan design, you can see that Nvidia is looking for something that looks much like the current crop of Founders Edition cards in shape, with twin fans and styling. However, RTX Titan cards will immediately be recognized thanks to their black and gold color options (in properly lit images) – gold was used in the previous Titan V design.
The launch prices are likely to come in with a 50 percent + premium on the RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition, which would set it at around $ 1800 +.
