nVidia Titan V - But can it mine cryptocurrency? Unboxing, Install, Testing Live!

BBT Carter walks the community through the brand new nVidia Titan V. Built on the new NVIDIA Volta architecture the card boast a 12GB HBM2 Frame Buffer, Boost Clock set to 1455 MHz, 640 Tensor Cores and over 5000 Cuda Cores, setting at 5120. While this card is aimed at Deep Learning and AI applications, the sure amount of Cuda Cores and HBM2 memory is what has us curious. We will not open until on the livestream to make sure we do the discovery together! The testbench for todays livestream is our normal testbench (we will remove the two EVGA GTX 1080Ti SC cards, perform a DDU and install from scratch).
