NVIDIA is apparently threatened by the new AMD Radeon RX Vega as NVIDIA has surprised everyone by releasing the Titan XP graphics card. Some tech enthusiasts believe that the NVIDIA's surprise product announcement was motivated by the stiff competition on the market, mainly AMD Radeon RX Vega.
NVIDIA's previous TITAN X graphics cards, and their official (and unofficial) names are- GeForce GTX Titan X (Maxwell) aka TITAN X(M) TITAN X (Pascal) aka TITAN X(P) TITAN XP (Pascal) aka the new TITAN X(P). NVIDIA just finished launching their new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti that provided better than TITAN X(P) performance at nearly half the cost ($699 vs. $1200).
According to Tweak Town, now we have the new TITAN XP graphics card that is indeed faster and beefier than the previous TITAN X (P). But several tech pundits and reports claim that it was not needed after the release of the GTX 1080 Ti.
AMD has its next-gen GPU architecture right around the corner, with its new AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics card promising some huge technological exclusives and advantages over the main competitor NVIDIA. There's the new AMD Vega GPU architecture that is a big going away from the mid-range/mainstream GPU architecture of Polaris - and a difference to NVIDIA's current-gen Pascal GPU architecture that is a refined version of Maxwell
Information about AMD Radeon RX Vega is very limited; however, VideoCardz has confirmed that only Chinese media were allowed to view the information about AMD Radeon RX Vega. There are about five images leaked recently, each one with distinct information. Among them, three pictures stand out, and these pictures bear the words "It's got a soul... It's got a brain... It's almost..." as if saying that the release of Radeon RX Vega is about to come sooner than usual.
AMD's upcoming Radeon RX Vega will be the first consumer graphics card ever released with HBM2 technology, and the monster AMD Radeon RX Vega will also rock High Bandwidth Cache or HBC. HBC is the large onion of the Vega NCU, with plenty of layers to peel back, each with exciting technologies behind them.
The upcoming graphics card will reportedly be better and more powerful than the AMD's RX series that were introduced in the market last year, based on Polaris architecture. According to Seeking Alpha, AMD Radeon RX Vega cards will allow users to experience high-end gaming. The cards would outplay even NVIDIA's best and most powerful graphics card used for gaming, the Pascal-based GTX 1080 Ti with 11GB GDDR5X memory. Moreover, the AMD Vega-based cards would support the 4K display.
This is the first time NVIDIA has had to worry about its high-end graphics card range having a rival, as the only card the Radeon RX 480 begins to compete with is the GTX 1060. NVIDIA owns the enthusiast markets with its GTX 1070, GTX 1080, GTX 1080 Ti, and TITAN X(P) - and now we have the GTX 1060 9Gbps, GTX 1080 11Gbps, and the new TITAN XP.
