Geforce "Titan" News and Discussion
NVIDIA to Name GK110-based Consumer Graphics Card "GeForce Titan"
2013 started off on a rather dull note for the PC graphics industry. NVIDIA launched its game console platform "Project: Shield," while AMD rebranded its eons-old GPUs to Radeon HD 8000M series. Apparently it could all change in late-February, with the arrival of a new high-end single-GPU graphics card based on NVIDIA's GK110 silicon, the same big chip that goes into making the company's Tesla K20 compute accelerator.
NVIDIA may have drawn some flack for extending its "GTX" brand extension too far into the mainstream and entry-level segment, and wants its GK110-based card to stand out. It is reported that NVIDIA will carve out a new brand extension, the GeForce Titan. Incidentally, the current fastest supercomputer in the world bears that name (Cray Titan, located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory). The GK110 silicon physically packs 15 SMX units, totaling 2,880 CUDA cores. The chip features a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface.
Supposed to be 85% of GTX690 for $900. Monstrous performance indeed but at that price you might as well get a 690.
Second coming of 8800 GTX (Geforce 780)
The rumor mill is spinning to
galeforce (or should we say
GeForce) winds. Its newest sack
of flour points at what could be
the first performance figure of
NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce
Titan 780 flagship single-GPU
graphics card. Circulating
among various Chinese tech
publications is this 3DMark 11
Xtreme Preset screenshot from
the PCinLife community, in
which a lucky bloke claimed
access to a GeForce Titan 780
engineering sample, and a
driver to get it to work. In the
scribbled out 3DMark 11 Xtreme
Preset score screenshot (below)
, the source claims the fabled
graphics card can
singlehandedly score X7107
points. For reference, a GeForce
GTX 690 usually scores in the
region of X6000 points, and a
GTX 680 around X3300. If true,
NVIDIA has something truly
remarkable up its sleeves,
maybe the second coming of
8800 GTX. From older reports,
we know that the GeForce Titan
is expected to ship sooner than
most people think, some time in

Interesting, how it's inked out with black paint after the 'Geforce' text.
that means gtx 780 will be a legendary card just like 8800gtx

i hope we will see better game engines to utilize those upcoming beasts. now regretting why i bought 670 earlier.. i was hoping gta 5 this year on pc.
Well if you guys don't mind the 800 USD price tag then yeah sure its an awesome card, honestly the only reason that its priced so high is because they know there won't be anything else to compete with this beast.

@aayman do you think the mid level 7 series will pack much better punch than current mid level 6 series?
Rumored TDP of 235W and that seems to be highly plausible. I read today about some Kepler powered supercomputer setting power efficiency records, plus we can see in the GTX600 series how efficient it really is. My UPS hasn't shown any load above 700W, and that's with monitor connected and BF3 running (both GPUs at 60-70% load). Don't know how accurate that is, but then again, how inaccurate can it be?

Definitely, I'd say at least 15% faster but that's based on nothing scientific, just a hunch since all they are doing is a Kepler refresh, so 670-like performance should move into the mid-range.

I dont know but these numbers suggests it will be faster than the dual gpu gtx 690. isnt it? well i ve few idea about these number. but from what it seems the 780 is faster rather 85% of gtx 690. well again im a newbie.
lol these numbers are similar to what the 8800GTX did to the the 7950GX2 except the 8800GTX was much faster than the dual card.
I can't really justify buying a 'single' card for that much if you know what I mean and the 690 is essentially a dual card, the reason that the G80 chips were such high priced was because of the lack of competition and the low yield that they used to get with those monolithic chips.
That being said I hope Amd bring something to compete with this on the table so that we have good prices I would gladly pick this up for about 650~
What is more intriguing is that finally the next generation consoles are coming so the games will give these hardwares a run for their money.
