NVIDIA Titan Xp Breaks Cover In Tomb Raider And Other Benchmarks Then Gets Teardown

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti’s reign at the top of consumer graphics food chain was short-lived. The $700 GTX 1080 Ti has now been supplanted by the $1,200 Titan Xp, a full-fat GP102 core that demolishes benchmarks first and asks questions later.

In case you missed it the first two times that we covered the Titan Xp, here’s the general breakdown of how the new ballbuster stacks up specs wise:

  • 12GB GDDR5X memory operating at 11.4 Gbps
  • Maximum memory bandwidth of 548Gbps
  • 3,840 CUDA cores running at a clock speed of 1.6GHz
  • 12 TFLOPs of compute power
  • Available direct from NVIDIA with an MSRP of $1,200

Baidu user Face777777 has posted a new round of Titan Xp benchmarks and the results continue to impress. The card was dropped into the following system:

  • Intel Core i7-6900K
  • X99-M Motherboard
  • 32GB DDR4 memory running at 3868MHz
  • 512GB NVMe PSI SSD

The Titan Xp in question was taken from the stock clock of 1.6GHz to 1.9GHz, allowing it to hit a peak of 14.5 TFLOPs instead of the standard 12 TFLOPs. With this juiced up card in tow, the system was able to lay down 3DMark Fire Strike, Fire Strike Extreme, and Fire Strike Ultra scores of 24,937, 15,115 and 8,073 respectively. The card also racked up a score of 10,851 in Time Spy.

Face777777 also whipped out some benchmarks for Rise of the Tomb Raider, run at 1080p with HD settings enabled. The Titan Xp was able to put up an overall score of 94.5 fps.

If the benchmarks weren’t enough, we were also treated to some glorious tear down shots of the Titan Xp, complete with a close-up of the GP102-450 core itself.


The standard cooling for the Titan X/GeForce GTX 1080 Ti/Titan Xp isn’t exactly what we’d call an “optimum” setup for extreme overclockers, so we’d definitely like to see what this card could do with a more exotic cooler attached.
