    The rumor mill is spinning to galeforce (or should we say GeForce) winds. Its newest sack of flour points at what could be the first performance figure of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce Titan 780 flagship single-GPU graphics card. Circulating among various Chinese tech publications is this 3DMark 11 Xtreme Preset screenshot from the PCinLife community, in which a lucky bloke claimed access to a GeForce Titan 780 engineering sample, and a driver to get it to work. In the scribbled out 3DMark 11 Xtreme Preset score screenshot (below), the source claims the fabled graphics card can singlehandedly score X7107 points. For reference, a GeForce GTX 690 usually scores in the region of X6000 points, and a GTX 680 around X3300. If true, NVIDIA has something truly remarkable up its sleeves, maybe the second coming of 8800 GTX. From older reports, we know that the GeForce Titan is expected to ship sooner than most people think, some time in February.

    That's pretty impressive if it all pans out to be true. Can't wait for gaming benchmarks from the Titan.

    This score says to me Titan might be a dual GK110 or a 15 SMX part running at around 1GHz though I can't imagine it being almost 100% faster than GK104.
    Don't think it'll get the GTX780 moniker.
    Other rumors say the 700 series will be out after AMD 8000 series, around June.

    Here's the catch, it won't be the next 8800GTX if it is priced above $700, even though it CUDA-whips the GTX690.

    This is the most unreliable picture, it tells pretty much nothing about the hardwere itself.
    For all i care it could be GTX680 in SLI. If GTX780 will score 6800 graphics at 3dm11 extreme preset im tatooing their logo on my bare ass. :)
    Am* and Crap Daddy say thanks.

    Yet another theory is NVIDIA could soft launch the card in Feb., with just enough inventory for launch reviews, and a few token sales here and there; with reasonable-availability towards June.

    Paper.

    Hehe Nvidia making good on those documents sold by the AMD employee's? :p

    I kid.

    With the headroom the last gen had and refinements/improvements of the next, it doesn't really surprise me.

    I hope AMD has something up it's sleeve none the less.

    Well I have a GTX660 Ti 2bg now, and it does the job just fine. However, there is some slow down here and there when I play BF3. Sadly, thats it only game I play on PC is BF3. I need some new games more than one to dump that kind of cash again. I ve been playing Halo 4 as of later a lot and not touched my PC for gaming. As excited as I am for a new shiny GPU I need some games before I spend money again. I know and understand a lot of people are not in the same boat as I am.

    I had a pair of 7970's and 680's, but ended up selling the systems as I never really gamed that much got my money out of them. I dunno maybe I am just being a big baby, but I really wish we start seeing some KILLER PC games to use that hardware. I highly doubt BF4 will render my current GPU useless.

    Sadly games arent evolving as fast as hardware is. Look at what happened when Vista came out. The hardware wasnt ready, this time, the game developers arent ready/cant be bothered to evolve to better engines. Some could blame consoles, but at the end of the day, developers are making more than enough money without improving. Why should they make an intensive game, few people will get the most out of. Not everyone can afford a $300 card, let alone this.
    I know plenty of people still stuck on C2D and 5xxx series ATi cards, as they see no reason to upgrade.

    So, a replay of the GTX680, I hope it works that way, so AMD can see how best to set performance and pricing to maximize the market penetration. The last time AMD went first it gave at least 4mo for Nvidia to juggle their product.

    I will say it Titan (GK110) will be a great "premium product", but built and offered just like the GTX690. A Nvidia design/built that they just allows AIB to sticker. Sure AMD won't have any direct competitor, although the price on a 8970 Cross-Fire set-up might be inline, and may well out perform it at times, while not demanding as much power.

    Hold on a second...doesn't the "780" fall in between 680 and 690 spec. wise? If yes, how can it outperform the 690?

    If those numbers are both true AND indicative of performance in games and not just benchmarks..... *wow*

    I'll be dumping my 7970s in a heartbeat for that. While Kepler does score a bit better in 3dmark11 than Tahiti, X7000 is about what my 7970s get at 1200/1800 MHz...

    We'll have to wait and see, though... first the rumor was 85% of a GTX 690's performance and now something like 125% of a GTX 690's performance so who knows...
