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.

Couple things:

Did anyone ever confirm that the Titan was the 780?
I see it as a "special edition" type card with limited production, after all I remember reading "no changes can be made by the manufacturers" so they will all look the same, not even a sticker from asus or evga or etc
But was that confirmed?

Secondly, when was the last single card with 6gb ddr5 benchmarked in 11?

Thirdly, if the score is true, I'll be buying one for sure, if its not true but close, I'll still be buying it.
If its only 50% better then single 680, I'll pass.

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.
One never knows! ;)

But it doesn't hurt to hope for it being the real thing does it?!


And I think the price will be $549 at launch :D

I don’t believe Titan will be the 780, but again a standalone design, manufactured in limited production same as a 690, but they may well permit stickers.

I can understand upgrading from maybe a 580, but not a 680. How many games do you 680 owners have problems with?

I'd say 680 + 1920, no reason. But at 2560x1600, it'd help.

If it is faster than the GTX 690 and costs less... than that's a good thing right, we really need GPUs to push biger ressolutions don't we... We've been playing around (literally) with 1920x1080, for what, 8 years now. Booooring...

Bring on 3840x2160@120Hz/3D gaming! Yeah! LOL

I'm still chugging along with good performance in games with my trusty EVGA 460 GTX 1GB ...

But my resolution is small 1366x768

To me 1920x1080 is a crazy resolution xD

1920x1080 is the norm man! But Yeah that 460 is a great card. I used one for a night playing CODMW and the piss-x was Awesome compared to a 5870!!!! But Im waiting for the next breed to hit the market! :rolleyes:

That wasn't PhysX. I remember that CODBO had additional effects enabled when playing with an nvidia card but I don't know if that is the case with MW as well.

670 SLI, yeah ya Gotcha but yeah certain screens would show the Phys-x big time over an ATI card ;)

You're lucky, you don't know what you're missing. Once you move to a higher resolution you can't go back and you have to spend a fortune on cards like the Titan to max out games. I love my 2560x1440 monitor, but it sure is disappointing to have to turn down settings with my $400 high-end card!

Hold on a second...doesn't the "780" fall in between 680 and 690 spec. wise? If yes, how can it outperform the 690?
I posted in the earlier thread, that "85%" is misleading. If it's 85% of the theoretical performance, then the Titan may well be faster than the 690 in games because it won't have to deal with SLI scaling issues.

Anyways if it does end up performing that good, I'm eating my hat ...



... and then getting one.

what good ol' days lol.

I remember radeon 9800xt was like $500
and that was 10 years ago :o
Factor in inflation and that $500 isn't too far off from today's $800.

It's somewhat very unlikely that performance will be more than 2x of its predecessor. Usually 2x is the limit at which they hold onto. Though they rarely do it. For AMD i only remember it happening with HD4800 -> HD5800 transition where HD5800 was twice as fast.

I remember paying over $1000 for the X1900XTX on the first week of it's release.. Video cards are so cheap these days.. but then all pc hardware pretty much is now.

Like memory.. Memory is crazy cheap now compared to say, what it was like in 2005.

Except the 680 (1st gen, medium kepler) isn't really its predecessor. The GK110 is already the refined big kepler.

This is like GTX580 (second gen, big fermi) compared to GTX460 (1st gen, medium fermi). Double the performance is very plausible. I'm just hoping Nvidia is sensible about it and doesn't go for double the price.

Depending on performance numbers, I'll be getting either a 790 or 8990. (or whatever the dual GPU card will be called.) My 7970's have been disappointing. Low FPS in WoW @ maxxed out 1080p

No I'm disappointed with my 7970's severe stuttering on games, shitty FPS in some games

Speculation

If that score is from 2 cards, then one card would be betwen 680 and 690. And for a 3500 4000 X score, it tottaly wont be worth the price. But for a single GPU, that may well be the mother ship of gpus out there.

I think he's confused as to why you'd want to upgrade to another dual gpu system and have the same problems.
