Nvidia announces Titan V, a $3000 graphics card based on Volta

NVIDIA has announced the Titan V, a prosumer graphics card based on the company's brand new Volta architecture using 12nm process that supersedes the previous Pascal architecture found on the Titan Xp. It's a $3000 graphics card that is designed entirely with compute performance in mind for people working on AI, deep learning, 3D rendering, and other computationally intensive applications.


At the heart of the Titan V is the GV100 GPU that was first seen on the $10000 (yes, that's one with five zeroes) Tesla V100 back in May. For the most parts, the GPU is identical, with 21.1B transistors, 5120 CUDA cores and 640 Tensor Cores. The Tensor Cores enable certain specific compute operations and is able to handle them much quickly and efficiently than the standard CUDA cores. This, coupled with the 1200MHz core clock and 1455MHz boost clock, results in single precision of 13.8 TFLOPS and double precision performance of 6.9 TFLOPS, both just a shade under what the V100 can do. The Titan V also boasts of 110 TFLOPS of Tensor performance, which is valuable for deep learning operations.

Upcoming full-screen Xperia smartphones leak in images

Two new Xperia smartphones have leaked, sporting the in vogue fullscreen bezel-less designs. The images come courtesy GizChina.com, who are confident these are indeed images and not renders.


The two devices not just look different from current Xperia devices but also between each other. One device has the current squarish Xperia design with what look like speaker grilles at the top and bottom on the front. On the back is a very unique looking curved matte and glossy surface, with the matte regions forming semicircles at the top and bottom. The glossy area in the center is supposed to be glass with a fingerprint sensor underneath. The two camera modules are oddly spread apart, which probably means one is just a depth sensor as this much spacing would result in much larger parallax for any other arrangement.
