GeForce GTX TITAN "Black Edition" to be Followed by GeForce GTX 790?

In a move by NVIDIA that could present enthusiasts with deep pockets more options in the high-end GPU segment, the company is planning not one, but two high-end graphics cards for this quarter (January to March). The company is planning to follow up its February launch of the GeForce GTX TITAN Black Edition with a dual-GPU card based on the GK110 silicon, presumably named "GeForce GTX 790." The card will be launched some time in March, and could help NVIDIA hold onto its own until it can make high-end GPUs on the teething next-generation 20 nm silicon fab process.

The GeForce GTX TITAN Black Edition replaces the GTX TITAN with a product that's not too different from the GTX 780 Ti in terms of core-configuration, but one that comes with 6 GB of memory, full double-precision floating point performance, and probably higher clock speeds. It offers the full complement of 2,880 CUDA cores, 240 TMUs, 48 ROPs, and a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. This card could displace the current GTX TITAN from its $999 price-point.

The GeForce GTX 790 is a whole different beast. Owing to electrical and thermal constraints inherent to placing two multi billion transistor GPUs next to each other, NVIDIA will deploy two cut-down GK110 chips. The duo will be faster than anything that was ever made to crunch pixels, if an application takes advantage of NVIDIA SLI. The ones that don't, will have to make do with a chip that's rumored to feature 2,496 CUDA cores, 208 TMUs, 40 ROPs, and a 320-bit wide memory interface, handling 5 GB of GDDR5 memory. In total, the card would hence feature 10 GB of memory.Source: VideoCardz

Money hungry company, they just can forget the $1000 price point. Anyway that is will obsolate after half year from a $500 AMD card.
If you could buy those $500 AMD cards, yeah. Like, they stay available for 10 seconds.

And... money hungry company? Welcome to capitalism. "Money hungry" wasn't even necessary, "company" already embodies that.

So this is the answer to the "new std" 4GB vram size.. Yeah 780Ti 6GB wouldn't cut it, a Titan with DP will be a better choice, yawn..

Just let those 780TI below 500-550€ already.. 600-650€+ is a ripoff :p

Already bought Kaveri last week and still happy with it, want to add a discreet video card just dont have enough money yet. those thing are SO DAMNNNN TEMPTING but way too expensive, let me guess $1999 for Titan Black Editon and $1499 for GTX790?

But on a serious note I love the look of the last card in the OP

Well, about the fire I can totally believe.

Knowing Nvidia we'd probably see the first 2 Phase PWM 350W+ dual GPU.

yawn, Dont really care to be honest, all Nvidia cards are over priced, so i wont be selling or buying any for a long time. The GTX 650 Ti Boost and under is where I would buy an Nvidia card.

gonna wait for the reviews of the 790 :3 been running 2 690's since they got released here and i'm pretty happy with them, only drawback is the limited amount of vmem of 2Gb.., if these 790's are really gonna get 5Gb per core i'm intressted.., and if the reviews are good maybe i'll get me 1 or 2 :3

Ya I really don't care this the 590 all over again. Yea it was stupid fast but then the 7970 came along, and it's performance to power consumption was embarrassing. We all know how power hungry the 590 was, and the blown VRM problem, lol. I've abandoned multi GPU, thier's a dependence on software that just kills!

Perhaps nVidia will make use of one of their concept designs they've had lying around for some time.
