3. December 2018 Updated with official specifications, pricing and release date.
Nvidia RTX Titan has been officially unveiled as "Ultimate PC GPU" after a set of clearly coordinated leaks on social media over the weekend, with Linus Tech Tips, JayzTwoCents and Google Brain, Andrew Ng, displaying all of the hardware or the Titan- white packaging with the RTX piston on it.
Linus presented the box a couple of times during a video this weekend, Jayz replied to subsequent jibs about where his Nvidia Titan RTX was with a picture post and the non-so-subtle tweet from Ng is masquerading as a recruitment post after have talked about trying some new hardware to reduce the time of infertility.
From all we could conclude, Nvidia Turing-based Titan RTX was made and dusted and awaited the final release. And after all these "leaks" in the last few days we were pretty sure that it was also imminent. And so it happened, with Nvidia announcing availability later in December with a price of $ 2,499 (£ 2,399). Merry Christmas, eh?
And if you've been very good this year, maybe Santa will release some Titan RTX, love your way this Christmas. If not, you will pay the big money like the rest of us. With the RTX 2080 Ti coming in at the former Titan-level $ 1

With the Volta-powered Titan V coming in at $ 3000 this time last year, it makes sense for Nvidia to choose the same launch window for Titan RTX. Although it's a bit surprising to see the card under the $ 3000 mark, especially because it's going to be the most powerful Turing GPU available for professional cards.
So what should be in gold-plated Titan RTX? With the RTX 2080 Ti that already uses the same TU102 GPU as the two big-boy Turing Quadro, it uses the same full-bodied GPU. This means that it has sporting the same 4,608 CUDA kernels for both the Quadro RTX 6000 and the Quadro RTX 8000, but with the 24GB GDDR6 memory of the former, not the 48GB of the latter.
