GeForce GTX 760 Last 700 Series SKU for 2013?

NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 760 could be the company's last GTX 700 series retail desktop SKU, at least for this year. A leaked slide by the company lays out how this year's three new GTX 700 series SKUs pretty much seal the product stack. It reveals that GeForce GTX TITAN will remain NVIDIA's flagship graphics card throughout the year. The thousand-dollar single-GPU card is based on the GK110 silicon, with 2,688 CUDA cores, and 6 GB of memory. The GeForce GTX 780, introduced this March, replaces the GeForce GTX 680 on the product-stack, even at its much higher launch price of $650, compared to its predecessor's $500. The GTX 780 has no competition from AMD at its price-point.

The slide also reveals that the GeForce GTX 770, which was launched late last month, will replace the GeForce GTX 670 from the stack. Based on the GK104 silicon, it features 1,536 CUDA cores, and 2 to 4 GB of memory. Given that it has a lot in common with the GeForce GTX 680, albeit with higher clock speeds, GPU Boost 2.0, its $400 pricing surprised us. The GeForce GTX 770 outperforms AMD's HD 7970 GHz Edition, and is generally priced on-par. The only definitively faster AMD card is the $1100 HD 7990 "Malta," which makes the GTX 770 the king of its segment.

Moving on, the GeForce GTX 760, which will launch a little later this month, is reportedly priced in the range of $250 and $300. The slide reveals that it will be fast enough to yank GeForce GTX 660 Ti from the product stack, and take its place (for which, it obviously needs to be faster). Given that, it should outperform a wide range of AMD SKUs, including the $300-ish Radeon HD 7950. Like the other GTX 700 series parts, the GTX 760 will likely feature GPU Boost 2.0, and could offer good energy efficiency levels, given its vaguely known specs. The complete and utter lack of competition from AMD will allow NVIDIA to space its GTX 700 series SKUs far apart from each other. The GTX 760 would be a good $100 to $150 spaced apart from the GTX 770, which in turn, is $150 apart from the GTX 780, and which is a staggering $350 apart from the GTX TITAN. That should sail NVIDIA through till the end of the year, assuming AMD doesn't try something new.Source: WCCFTech

Being that the 780 was just a cut down SKU of GK110, and the 760 is just another cut down SKU of GK104, one has to wonder if the 700 series is just a dumping ground for Keplar? :banghead:

All I know is that it has provided spectacular competition for AMD :toast:

But then that's mostly because with the 600 series, they got things right the first time around.
None of the issues the 400 series had that made the 500 series soo refreshing.

I say this 700 series is spot on, nvidia basically did not have to discover new cards other than GK110.

Now the ball goes to AMD and as usual nvidia will just spectate and have the advantage of knowing the performance of AMD's next gen like how it happened with 7970 and GTX 680.
Nvidia knows if AMD doesn't meet its GM100/110 perf it can deploy GM104 as GTX 8xx and create another line of Titan later on.

Let's hope AMD kicks ass this time cause I want to go back red, yes I am a bit of an ati fanboy ;)

There's no point in bringing out anymore 7xx SKU chips, they're waiting for AMD to release their line of cards, so that they can best counter AMD's positioning. NVidia believe they are ahead, they're just setting themselves up for when AMD comes. Then the Ti's and Boost's will go flying all over the place.

I'd also like to go back to single GPU red team, but not during the 8xxx series, the 780 will do me just fine until then!

^ so it becomes a game of chicken and nobody wants to release anything first?

Well ideally you'd always want to know the performance target you should be looking at when you are producing something, atleast if I was one graphics brand I know I would.

Nvidia has been smart to put itself on that position, more than once.

You can't imagine for how much I waited the 7990 and hoped for it to perform well :(

I was ready to sell up shop and build for 7990's official release. A shame really, I think drivers let them down a little.

It took AMD forever from the initial speculation and then official announcement to the release of the 7990 that I knew it wouldn't stand up. Shame really, hopefully AMD can put the pressure on Nvidia with the 8000 series release.

It's always special, better performance for massive price cut (fair price). I always buy nvidia at their refresh, but this time, i decided to wait maxwell.

AMD Radeon is really not competitive to nVidia Geforce at this time. Hopefully they will come out with something new and good.

Where is that 780 at 150$ apart of the 770? I demand to know!

Looks like nVidia waiting for AMD response. Just to see what is on offer from them, before they can throw in the Ti and Boost edition.
