NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Final Specifications, Internal Benchmarks Revealed

Specifications of NVIDIA's upcoming high-end graphics card, the GeForce GTX Titan, which were reported in the press over the last couple of weeks, are bang on target, according to a specs sheet leaked by 3DCenter.org, which is allegedly part of the card's press-deck. According to the specs sheet, the GTX Titan indeed features 2,688 out of the 2,880 CUDA cores present on the GK110 silicon, 6 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 384-bit wide memory interface, and draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

The GeForce GTX Titan core is clocked at 837 MHz, with a GPU Boost frequency of 876 MHz, and 6.00 GHz memory, churning out 288 GB/s of memory bandwidth. The chip features a single-precision floating-point performance figure of 4.5 TFLOP/s, and 1.3 TFLOP/s double-precision. Despite its hefty specs that include a 7.1 billion-transistor ASIC and 24 GDDR5 memory chips, NVIDIA rates the card's TDP at just 250W.

More slides and benchmark figures follow.

The next slide leaked by the source reveals key features of the reference design cooling solution, which uses a large lateral blower that features RPM and voltage-based speed control on the software side, a vapor-chamber plate that draws heat from the GPU, memory, and VRM; and an extended aluminum fin stack that increases surface area of dissipation.

Next up, we have performance numbers by NVIDIA. In the first slide, we see the GTX Titan pitted against the GTX 680, in Crysis 3. The GTX Titan is shown to deliver about 29 percent higher frame-rates, while being a tiny bit quieter than the GTX 680.

In the second slide, we see three GeForce GTX Titans (3-way SLI) pitted against a pair of GeForce GTX 690 dual-GPU cards (quad-SLI). In every test, the Titan trio is shown to be faster than GTX 690 Quad-SLI. In Crysis 3, GTX Titan 3-way SLI is shown to be about 75 percent faster; 100 percent faster in Max Payne 3, 40 percent faster in TESV: Skyrim, and 95 percent faster in Far Cry 3. Why this comparison matters for NVIDIA is that if Titan does end up being a $1000 product, NVIDIA will have to sell three of them while offering something significantly better than GTX 690 quad-SLI.

I was wondering about this. Since Nvidia has been selling GK104 K10 Quadros at 50% discount how they were going to distinguish from the upcoming GK110 Quadros.

If you want Titan to run Double Percision. It will lock that card at base clock. Its a smart move since this is aimed at gamers but you'd think its been crippled enough at $1k with no ECC and support they'd leave it alone.

Just thought that was interesting.

If nvidia needed this incredible jump in power consumption and price, for 30% perf increase, i don't see any radeon card coming 50% faster than 7970 Ghz, at least for a year. Maybe a refresh at 20% faster than 7970 Ghz/gtx 680 in about 8 months. Sad story...

don't blame a company for what the government does. The government double and triple dip with taxes all the time. Businesses gets taxed on the income after expenses. You get income taxed and then pay more taxes when paying for products and services. You end up paying taxes with your taxed money. I know I am losing more than half of what i make if I account for all the taxes I pay.


We have sales tax that can go over 20% in some places. We also have all kinds of ridiculous taxes and more in the works. There's actually a new highway utility tax for hybrid/ev owners in the works where they have to pay an extra $100 or so a year. That's funny since we already pay these taxes in gasoline/diesel and annual registration/fees/hut/etc...
The lottery has always supposed to be extra funding for education but we're lucky if half of that goes to the schools. You get taxed to hell if you win and even more if you want lump sum
I am aware of the taxes in the US as seen as i lived here for 11 years now.. BUT yes VAT is still tax it's just politicians making another way up to tax you on top of other taxes.

Off Topic.

Taxes pay for Schools, Teachers, Law Enforcement, Hospitals (in some EU), Welfare (think disability) and much more. It also pays for the biggest expense of most countries - the Military (inclusive of R&D and actually funding an Army/Navy?air Force). And Nuclear Weapons.

USA is resource rich (Like Russia and China and other BRIC countries). It can afford lower taxes as it sells or produces a lot of it's own consumable product.

The UK is tiny in comparison, has no wealth of natural resource and relies on taxes to fund all of the above.

Simple.

Titan is still too expensive.

Pictures aren't "right". They have pictures of a GTX690 there, look at the fan shroud. Clearly has GTX 690 imprinted on it.

It is expensive because of exclusivity, unless you can find a substitute the price is going to stay expensive.

Who cares about VAT when it's already so expensive. I mean if you can afford something that's 900 I'm sure you can add another hundred or so. If you make hard work and sacrifices to raise 900 then probably this card is not for you.

Loaded power consumption of 214 watts (from PCGH - in German so break out your fav translator if req'd)


Nvidia also seem to have the noise/cooling solution down to a fine art.

I don't care about any of it...this card looks nice, and I want it. I'm not too concerned with performance...it's better than GTX680, I'm sure.

The price tag though, that's tough. I need at least two...but there is no way for me to afford such things.

Why do you need 2 Titan's lol. Im sure 6GB of vram is enough for your monitors. And yeah a price of 799 to 899 would make a lot more sense.

Yea, I seen that after the double take.. I meant to say the overall picture... That heatsink shroud looks very close to the one they are using on the titan.. I had 3 of them in my cart and right before I hit buy.. I seen it was a GTX690... j/k lol there's no way I could afford 1... Let alone 3.. hehehe

There's more to a VGA than the amount of ram it has. And you wonder why you aren't taken seriously...:laugh:

I already have dual 7950's, and they aren't fast enough, and a single Titan isn't going beat dual 7950's. Two Titans...maybe. Maybe three.:roll: I want that smecksky SLI bridge, too.




I WANT DIS NAOW!!


sadly, I have kids to feed instead. :banghead:

I hope you can buy it.


:rockout:



I mean really, if you can...that might be a deal closer for me. Sell me three cards with a bridge in a nice package deal. I already got the Dominator Platinums...too bad the pic looks like you'd never be able to install any case plugs, like power, reset, you know...the important stuff.:roll:


:respect::respect::respect:


But it better damn well light up the NV logo...dammit.:banghead:

I'd like to see them stick with this design for future cards. Looks great!

yeah, these cards go PERFECTLY with the platinums! Im surprised the card will be priced at $1,000. It won't beat the 690 I dont think, and the 690 is still priced that high.

If performance beats GTX 680/7970ghz by close to 50% overall, it will be worth it... and I will buy one. If not, well... Congrats to those who decide to buy this.

Agreed :) Bring on Thursday.

I wouldnt even want to stick Titan on water cooling either. The stock cooling is way to sexy to take off.

Overclocked vs reference 7970GHz/680 I think it will go 50% average (that's around GTX690 performance)

That's what I'm waiting to find out... and the price. That of course is a big factor. I can afford it, two if I want.. But I'm not going to jump on the ship if I don't personally find the price/performance ration to my liking. At 2560x1440 I could always use more grunt.

Can someone consolidate news threads... what a mess! Two threads, same shit. Less drooling more modding! :p
