The Titan V is a supercomputing card, a good fit for the present machine learning focus of Volta. The Titan V uses the same Tensor Core design as detailed with the V100 announcement, and also moves to combine L1 cache and shared memory, which should make development (particularly CUDA/tensor software) easier to undertake.
NVidia’s Titan V is built on 12nm FFN silicon, accompanied by 12GB HBM2 on the interposer.
The card is available at $3000 for direct purchase. It should go without saying, of course, that you shouldn’t buy this for gaming – it won’t be very good at it, as the card is built to lead in machine learning and scientific development.
We’ll release more information as it is received.

The Titan V reference PCB -- presumably the only PCB that will exist -- uses a 16-phase DrMOS VRM. The cooling solution is the same as used on the GTX 10 series of cards, including the 1080 Ti, and so uses a vapor chamber with radial blower fan. This matches the 250W TDP, as further reinforced by 1x 8-pin + 1x 6-pin power connectors. The cooler can't take much more than that, anyway. As for NVIDIA Titan V specs, the card is using a GV100 GPU with 5120 CUDA cores and 640 Tensor Cores, clocked to 1200MHz base / 1455MHz boost on the CUDA cores. The card also hosts 320 TMUs.
