NVIDIA GeForce GTX 700 Series Coming This May

AMD may have declared that its next-generation GPU family won't arrive before October, but that isn't stopping NVIDIA from launching its GeForce GTX 700 series much earlier. While AMD's lineup is banking on sales during the X'mas shopping season, NVIDIA is going after the pre-Summer system upgrade crowd. According to a Bright Side of News (BSN) report, NVIDIA's new lineup will make its debut no later than this May.

According to the BSN report, GeForce GTX 700 series will be heavily based on existing GeForce Kepler silicon, with a handful feature-set updates, and some clever product stack adjustments. The part that succeeds today's GeForce GTX 680, the GeForce GTX 780, could be based on the 28 nm GK110 silicon, and could very well be the fabled "GTX TITAN LE" part that's been in the news for some time now, as being a scaled down GeForce GTX TITAN, with 2496 CUDA cores, 208 TMUs, 40 ROPs, and a 320-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 5 GB of memory.

The GeForce GTX 770 could be similar to today's GeForce GTX 680, in featuring 1536 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide memory interface, probably holding 4 GB of memory; and the GeForce GTX 760 Ti being similar to today's GeForce GTX 670, featuring 1344 CUDA cores, 112 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and 256-bit wide memory interface, holding 2 GB of memory; so you see where NVIDIA is going with its product stack.

GeForce GTX 700 series could present NVIDIA the opportunity to introduce a few new features that don't involve redesigning existing silicon. These include GPU Boost 2.0, as implemented on the GeForce GTX TITAN, higher clock speeds across the board to current GeForce GTX 600 series models the new SKUs are evolving from, and of course double the memory amounts on certain cards.

The very first GeForce GTX 700 series part could be launched in mid-May, and could probably be the GTX 770 and GTX 760 Ti, being launched as precursors to a grand GTX 780 launch towards the end of May. Computex 2013 could see a swarm of GeForce GTX 700 series cards from NVIDIA's various add-in card vendors being exhibited.Source: Bright Side of News

That slide shows Skyrim at 80 FPS @ 4K.

I have yet to see a working CrossfireX driver for Skyrim.

They either have a driver release up their sleeve when the 7990 launches or they are pulling out a blatant lie.

Also, sign the "no ultra" petition!
Why?

On the one hand you suggest sticking with current gen cards, and adding more cards to your current setup, but on the other hand you oppose the release of a card that can potentially lower the current price of Titan and make it more affordable to go SLI, what's it gonna be then? :p

If anything we Titan owners should sign a petition asking for nVidia to release the ultra, I bet you two titans will beat a single ultra (or 780) any day :rockout:

As for quoting unreliable benchmarks, and saying this card or that card are obsolete, oh well, I can tell you I currently thoroughly enjoy my Titans, and have so for the last couple months, if that level performance becomes more affordable with the 700 series, then the more power to all gamers :)

Yes, GK110 was gonna be the GTX 680, but AMD released a card that was only 15-20% faster than its previous $350 flagship at $550, (and I'm referring to the original 7970, not the superb GHz Ed) nVidia saw the opportunity to label and sell the 670 as the new "680" and laughed all the way to the bank, enabling them to ramp yields for GK110 and releasing later as a halo card, the rest is history.

I really hope both manufacturers come to their senses and bring down the prices of their flagships, but with dumb ppl like me paying top dollar for the latest technology, that'll probably not happen soon, but if the 780 makes it affordable to have Titan performance to the vast majority of gamers (and by extension makes Titan more affordable) I see that only as a win-win scenario :)

hey guys how reliable is this source? I just bought a 660ti yesterday. I can return it inside 2 weeks but it runs so silently, it breaks my heart. Should I return it?

So, their new series will be hardly any faster than HD7970. How boring is that? The HD7970 is almost growing itself a long beard considering how old it is now. NVIDIA, stop being lazy and selling slow overpriced cards...

New features huh? Does that mean nVidia will finally support full DX11.1 spec as well as PCI-E 3.0? :trollololol :D :P

IDK, if GTX 780 actually exists and is slated for May... and I'd have the money, $500 is tops what I'd dish out for one.

I'd actually sign the ULTRA PLOX petition. Would probably drive down prices on current Titan and possibly put Titan LE/GTX780 at $500.

If anything, that supposed Ultra should replace the current one, at the same price bracket, since GTX 690 will EOL soon, so no more more own market stealing and GTX 780 even if slower or not that current TITAN, will sound a lot better to most people, even if the price won't be ~500$... (but I hope it will).

Not sure what part you're trolling about, but my GTX670 has full support for PCI-ex 3.0, and the biggest changes in DX11.1 were on the developer side of things so that seems a bit irrelevant for the end user.

If Nvidia wants me to give them some of my hard end $$$ this year instead of me buying a next gen console from MS or Sony, they better reconsider their pricing structure.

Current trends in pricing the high end cards towards €1000 must FAIL.

I've got a 27" 1440p monitor and a water cooled GTX680 SLI setup but I would only expect to pay €500 for Titan (30% increase over single GTX680) not €1000.

GTX780 coming in at anywhere between €500 - €600 for lets say, 20% improvement over GTX680 won't get my cash.

I'll buy my next gen console and hold off upgrading my GPUs until AMD / Nvidia true next gen offerings come out in 2014.

So I am stuck with no GPU waiting the next batch of cards. However, I've been itching to grab a GTX Titan. I prefer single GPU config and game on 1200p monitor.

I'd like a single GPU setup too but one Titan just isn't powerful enough to consistently give 60fps @ 1440p.

Maybe that card will come with the Maxwell tech in 2014 but until then its SLI for me.

This.

AMD and especially nVidia need to get this through their thick skulls... Cheap acceptable (1600x900 @ 40fps+ @ high+ settings) gaming on the cheap (as in, comparable costs to a new console) or GTFO. No place for overpriced pieces of rehashed hardware such as GF TITAN or R7990.

HD7990 is not a rehash, it's a dual GPU high end. It's almost a tradition that they release a dual GPU at the end of one series era.

700 or 680?

I`ve got a question...
It is time to afford a new graphicscard for me now so should I wait for the 700-series to come out or just buy the 680?
By the way_how many GB of vram will be necessary to play the next generation of games on at least `high` settings?
please reply...

Just want an upgrade

Frankly guys I'm just hoping for a drop in the 660ti/670 price point so i can ditch my old (but worthy) 560ti and get a single card capable of delivering full HD gaming on high settings and 40+ FPS.
I've read that Nvidia aren't exactly known for their eagerness to drop prices but with these refresh cards basically performing similarly to the previous gen surely they can't have them only a few ££ apart?
I have a budget of around £250 for my next Gfx card so I'm hoping the 670 series will drop a good £40-50...too optimistic you think?

I say let all companies involved release as many cards, as many series of cards as possible. Saturate the market! 50 flavors of Titan!!! Really though, doesn't everyone want this? It seems to be what is best for the consumer when you have a large supply of various cards, things tend to get less expensive. Price wars happen, maybe we'll get 10 games with AMD someday. :laugh:

I'm not sure that I understand the complaints of the 700-Series being a refresh. The 500-Series was the same concept: New Flagship, Improved Power Consumption, Higher Clocks. It was still the same 40-nm process, still essentially the same architecture as the 400-Series.

And what of AMD's 6000-Series vs the 5000-Series? I'll admit there were a little more changes there, with the 6970 and 6950 using VLIW4, and improved Tesselation performance. It was still largely the same song and dance. Improved Power Consumption and Higher Clocks.

It's as if some people don't recognize the pattern and are genuinely shocked that there aren't a slew of new cards coming out. Granted, things would be a lot more interesting if we did have new architectures and spec sheets to salivate over each year or two. As btarunr stated, I'm sure we'll see a lot of the 700-Series cards will have GPU Boost 2.0 and increased VRAM on some models. I'm going to throw out the prediction that when the AMD's 8000-Series surfaces, it isn't a process reduction or significant change in architecture.
