Just under a week ago NVIDIA launched its new Volta architecture graphics cards series, surprising a few onlookers by launching a $3,000 USD GeForce GTX Titan V that uses a ‘Big Volta’ GV100 GPU. So far a few HWBOT members have stumped up the asking price and started benching with the new latest and greatest from NVIDIA. Let’s take a look at handful of score submissions which include one World Record and 4 Global First Place, single card scores.
H2o vs. Ln2 (US) Breaks Catzilla 720p World Record - The original Mr Slinky, H2o vs. Ln2 from the US has acquired at least a few cards and has already broken his first World Record. The new VRMark Cyan Room World Record stands at 14,806 marks and was made with an NVIDIA Titan V at (apparently) stock settings, i.e. the GPU with a boost frequency of 1,455MHz and graphics memory at 850MHz. The rig also used an Intel Core i9 7980XE 'Skylake-X' chip, which puts the price of the rig's two key components at a tidy $5,000 USD alone.
H2o vs. Ln2 has clearly also been experimenting with his monster liquid cooled rig, pushing both GPU and CPU to break a few Global First Place scores. In the Unigine Superposition - 1080P Xtreme benchmark, the new fastest ever score with a single GPU now stands at 10,446 points. This was made with the Volta-architecture GPU pushed (according to the submission post) to 2,010MHz with memory at 2,132MHz. The CPU was also apparently pushed to apparently to 5.5GHz. The same rig also broke the Global First Place score for a single card in GPUPI - 1B, which now stands at 4sec 65ms.
jpmboy (US) Breaks 3DMark Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme GFP Scores - US Overclocker jpmboy has also been enjoying some Titan V performance breaking the 3DMark Time Spy Global First place record for a single card with a score of 15,570 marks. He pushed his GV100 GPU to 1,546MHz with graphics memory at 1,455MHz (+71.18%), also using an Intel Core i9 7980XE 'Skylake-X' pushed in this case to 4,900MHz. In the 3DMark Time Spy Extreme benchmark the new GFP score for a single card now stands at 8,180 marks.
NVIDIA’s new Volta GPUs certainly appear to offer a new level of performance compared to Pascal. It will be interesting to see how the GeForce GTX 2080 card performs when (if?) it arrives. Until then you can find all the new Volta scores in the links above. Enjoy.
