Deathspawner writes: At a special artificial intelligence gathering at Stanford University on Thursday, NVIDIA's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang unveiled the world's fastest graphics card: the second-generation GeForce TITAN X. Based on the company's latest Pascal architecture, the new top-end card features 3,584 CUDA cores clocked at 1.53GHz, 12GB of GDDR5X, and is spec'd at 11 TFLOPs, which is at least 2 TFLOPs higher than the company's recently released GTX 1080. Jen-Hsun also touted for the first time a metric called TOPS (INT8), a deep-learning inferencing instruction. The new GTX TITAN X officially hits 44 TOPS. NVIDIA has said that its second-gen TITAN X will retail for $1,200, and will become available on August 2.
