Just wondering.. anyone running a Nvidia Titan RTX in DC projects?

Things have just crazy lately.. I was checking Nvidia's sales website and all of the GPUs are sold out except the Titan RTX. (I received a email for the 2080 super being available, but they sold out in 1 hr :oops:)
With the only the RTX being available (go figure.. at a very steep price none the less) I was just wondering if anyone was running one of them. How do they compare against the 2080Ti in F@H or some other DC project? Worth the extra $$? With it being double the cost of a 2080Ti, I would hope it would be the same output as dual 2080ti, but I'm too chicken to pull that trigger and I'm doubting it would be. :p

Wait for the 3000 series. You can get 2-3 3070/3080's for that price, or one 3080Ti and have cash left over, while beating the current Titan.

Ah good to hear.. I think I'll wait then - my lower end system I have dual 980s to replace so that would be a good time to swap. Thanks a ton for the info!

Some Titan generations make sense relative to their sibling xx80-Ti model, others don't. For example, Titan-V, as a Volta device, brings a good amount of FP64 throughput.

Titan RTX on the other hand only has very low FP64 capability similar to RTX 2080Ti, similar FP32 capability (fewer CUDA cores but higher TDP), and 9 % higher VRAM bandwidth. There is one notable feature of Titan RTX which sets it apart from RTX 2080 Ti, and this is 24 GB vs 11 GB VRAM. However, none of the GPU applications in the Distributed Computing realm is benefiting from this extra VRAM.

Hence, Titan RTX is a special device for people who need this much VRAM for their very special application, yet at the same time don't need ECC or FP64.
