    Well, since NV dropped tri/quad SLI support with Pascal, you just mean four cards in one rig, for like, mining purposes or somesuch, right?

    Anyway, two titans for $6k, that sounds like a hell of a lot of fun just waiting to be enjoyed! Go for it! :D

    (Or just wait a few months for the inevitable GV102 release with nearly as good performance for a tiny fraction of the price...)

    High class escort always demands more money, but you usually get better "experience" :p

    Each of them is roughly 2.5x faster than my tweaked Vega 56 for gaming, so you will be 5 years ahead of me with two of them! Nice :O

    Gaming, folding, and video (rendering) production work. But I did not know they dropped Tri/Quad support on gaming. But it does make sense in some ways.

    Why not just wait until the actual gaming Volta comes out?

    Some early Benchmarks are out. Huge increase in performance, particularly when overclocked vs the 1080ti. Not surprising given the big increase in CUDA core count

    Hopefully the fears that Ampere being refreshed Maxwell at 12nm isn't true now that there is no competition from AMD.
    Nvidia is only competing with itself, so hopefully they do not further prolong our stay on Maxwell which is (apparently) Pascal at 16nm.

    I want one (mostly to play with the tensor cores, but can't hurt for gaming on the side ;) ) but the shipping date for UK is Dec 30 :(

    Does anyone know if it was originally available immediately in the UK/Europe and I missed it, i.e. it's effectively back ordered? Or was the availability US-only?

    I believe the 30th is the first shipping / release date for the UK.

    Titan V teardown:



    Things worthy of note: entire interposer is epoxied, unlike many of the Vega assemblies.

    There's little silicon spacers in each corner above and under the HBM stacks, but no spacer inbetween the stacks themselves. Interesting.

    https://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/3171-nvidia-titan-v-power-consumption-thermals-and-clock-behavior

    Idles around 80 watts, mostly under 400 watts for the most demanding games. I'm 101% sure, Titan V power consumption didn't get SLI/NVL nixed. The card is primarily for AI and Deep Learning purposes, but maybe in the future Nvidia will add SLI/NVL to Titan V, since the bridge ports/connectors are present on the card.
