The latest shipping manifest may be our first hint that NVIDIA is indeed working on something new Titan RTX graphics card featuring island architecture.
NVIDIA Titan RTX features Ada Lovelace GPU architecture with 48 GB GDDR6X memory and PG137 board
You can view shipping manifests here volza tracking global import data and has various containers of “PG137-0000” GPUs (prototypes) from the US to India for further testing and inspection. There are a few other GPUs mentioned, but these have already been launched, such as the RTX 4090, RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 Ti. There is currently no graphics card that uses a custom PG137 board and has 48GB of GDDR6 memory. You’d expect it to be an RTX 6000 Ada, but it’s a very different board design.
NVIDIA Titan RTX Ada Graphics Card ‘Rumor’ Specifications
according to Kopite7kim, the next-generation NVIDIA Titan RTX graphics card based on the Ada Lovelace GPU architecture is expected to feature the AD102 GPU, rocking 142 SMs on 18,176 CUDA cores. A similarly configured chip is rumored to be featured on the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti card and will have the designation AD102-400-A1. Only a fully enabled SKU with all 144 SMs should receive the AD102-450-A1 designation, but it is unlikely that a product with such a chip will be released. It could be introduced later as another Workstation or BFGPU class card, but no rumors yet list a fully enabled Ada AD102 GPU.
The NVIDIA Titan RTX “Island” is also rumored to feature 48GB of GDDR6 memory over a 384-bit wide-bus interface. Now the listing clearly reads GDDR6, not GDDR6X memory, but it would be strange not to include the fastest memory solution in a premium product like the RTX Titan. One possibility is that non-standard X memory is used to reduce the extremely high power consumption, which is rated around 800-900W. Another possibility is that the list simply doesn’t distinguish between GDDR6 and GDDR6X memory standards. The latter seems more plausible, as it is also the case in the RTX 4090/4080/4070 Ti listings of the same list.
Matthew Smith of TechPowerUP recently reported (now Video card) that the NVIDIA Titan RTX “Island” graphics card has indeed been tested and confirmed with 2235 MHz base and 2520 MHz boost clocks along with 48 GB of GDDDR6X memory. Now, this doesn’t mean the card is ready for a mainstream launch, it just tells us that there is something more powerful that may or may not make it to market. The graphics card is expected to have a four-slot cooling solution and a very unique PCB and I/O design. details here.
Considering that the RTX 4090 can reach boost frequencies of 2.8-2.9 GHz by chance, the card could easily even break the 100 TFLOP barrier, and that would be the case with the TITAN.
