Are These GeForce GTX 780 and GeForce GTX 770?

NVIDIA's next-generation GPU family is not far away. We're hearing that new product-launches from the GPU giant could be just weeks away, and within this month. It's only natural that some of these cards could pass through leaky pipes, much to our benefit. One such source in China posted pictures of what he claims to be NVIDIA-reference design GeForce GTX 780 and GeForce GTX 770. Both cards feature a design not unlike the $1000 GeForce GTX TITAN. In fact they look identical. It's not the questionable embossing on the cooler shrouds that caught our attention, it's the subtle differences near the PCI-Express interface - location of PCB number, arrangement of termination resistors, etc., that did, and so we're rating this leak highly plausible.

We know from a previous report that GeForce GTX 780 will be positioned a notch below the GeForce GTX TITAN, in NVIDIA's product stack. It could be based on the same GK110 silicon, and could feature 2,496 CUDA cores, and a 320-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 5 GB of memory. It won't surprise us if NVIDIA completely recycles the GTX TITAN PCB, as it doesn't particularly have an over-the-top selection of components, apart from the GPU. The GeForce GTX 770 is a different beast altogether. It is based on a GPU not unlike the GK104, with 1,536 CUDA cores, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 4 GB of memory. To sweeten the prospect of upgrading to these new cards, NVIDIA is dropping in the same sexy magnesium alloy-based cooling solution it used on $1000 cards such as the GTX TITAN and GTX 690.

God I really hope nVidia and AMD (in the high end department) fail miserably with these products and tactics...

However awful the days of GF 9800GX2 or RHD 4870 X2 or GTX 295 where... I kinda miss them now...

Cards look great mimicking Titan's looks!
also, apparently imminent launch of 700 series is turning out to be true after all...
found this (allegedly leaked nV slide)

GTX770 will MSRP at $500 same a the 680 did. And while the cooler might appear Titan like, something tells me at least the GTX770 won't be of the same construction it could be the same GTX 680 with a faux painted plastic shroud. No vapor-chamber, lower grade fan, a lot of slight differences that make it cost effective but cool looking enough to make folk go wow!
nope. MSRP $399-$449

Well with the news of AMD "Volcanic Islands" they'd be smart to stick more to the latter…

Oh yes.

EDIT: I would hop onto the red team in a flash if I was not bound to using nvidia :(
