First NVIDIA GeForce Titan 780 Performance Numbers Revealed

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 February.

the 690 is dual 680's on one card
And? I still don't see how the 780 can be faster than the 690 when you compare the specs.

K20X

Shading Units: 2688
TMUs: 224
ROPs: 48
SMX: 14
Pixel Rate: 41.0 GPixel/s
Texture Rate: 164.0 GTexel/s
Floating-point performance: 3,935.23 GFLOPS

GTX 690:
Shading Units: 1536 x2
TMUs: 128 x2
ROPs: 32 x2
SMX: 8 x2
Pixel Rate: 29.3 GPixel/s x2
Texture Rate: 117.1 GTexel/s x2
Floating-point performance: 2,810.88 GFLOPS x2

GK 110 has 15 SMX 2880 CC. K20x is running at 732 MHz. If this Titan is a fully enabled GK110 and runs at 1GHz we might see something.

It won't run at 1 GHz my algorithms put it close to ~900 MHz.

Does the 3Dmark even benefit from CC? Aren't they meant for computing?

If it is running at 1GHz, it still seems weird to me...where do those 1000 points come from if the 690 is running around 950MHz.

sorry, my point was that the 690 is spec'd the same as a 680, just two of them.

if the 780 has 6gb of memory like the link a few posts back says it does that could go a long way towards achieving that score, in addition to a fully loaded 110 clocked higher i think we have a winner, an expensive one but a winner

It would be great 'if' this score turns out true/close, when the card is launched, which I doubt


[spoiler=but then.....]
[/spoiler]

but can anybody tell if Extreme preset is GPU memory + DP perf(compute/physics) dependent? I ask this because of the expected 6GB Vram and that GK110 has much better DP performance than GK104

Unless this is one humongous, power hungry, expensive and low yielding chip then I don't see how this can be possible. I guess we'll just wait and see.

If this is true then prepare for sticker shock! and 300+W requirements.

va Ares II

This shot is in time to wipe the floor with the ARES II card. If that x7100 is from a single GPU, you can bet your ass ill stick 2 inside my rig.

Not believable. Especially if this GPU is actually based on GK110, the numbers just don't make any sense.

Wishful thinking from some Chinese enthusiast I would say.

Got to remember dude - all rumours and one of the main ones was it has 85% the performance of the 690.

Only now an oddly high x7100 score pops up - which seems unlikely, especially for the rumoured power envelope.

We'll all see soon enough. :toast:

Agreed, it's performance that cannot be achieved even with a full GK110 core

Everything benefits from CC. They are the modern equivalent of shaders. Core-count and bus width are the main differences between low-end and high-end cards.

Pretty spectacular performance. A new 8800 GTX it certainly is not: you didn't have to cough up 900 bucks to get it.

The rumoured price is crazy, but you can guarantee not long after it's launch you'll see people with two, three even four of them topping all the benchmarks.

awesome performance, horrible price..

900 dollars is A LOT of money.. no chance i'll pay that for a VGA.

The price is ridiculous. I miss the good ol' days where $350 bought you the top of the line card.
what good ol' days lol.

I remember radeon 9800xt was like $500
and that was 10 years ago :o

Good, one more for me. I am waiting for GTX 690 ballpark performance from single GPU. If I get that I am happy even at 900 USD.

Basically having that kind of monster single GPU without SLi downsides is win win win. 8800 Ultra oh yes.
