    It turns out that NVIDIA's upcoming high-end graphics card, the GeForce GTX 780, is indeed based on the GK110 chip, and to the extant of featuring the same reference-design PCB and cooling solution as the GeForce GTX TITAN. Chinese portal IT168 posted press-shots of the card. If you overlook the "GTX 780" embossing on the cooler, half the number of memory chips, and another very subtle difference, you will easily mistake the GTX 780 for a GTX TITAN.

    Pictures reveal the card to feature an ASIC bearing the number "GK110-300-A1," which is rumored to feature 2,304 CUDA cores, 192 TMUs, 48 ROPs, and a 384-bit wide memory interface. Given that the card features just twelve 2 Gbit memory chips, the total memory amount should be 3 GB. The card is said to feature clock speeds of 863 MHz core, 902 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory, which belts out 288 GB/s memory bandwidth. It draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors. The 4-way SLI-capable card gives out display from a pair of dual-link DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort connectors.

    Wonder why the clock speed ratings are coming down a tad? I would have thought that with this generation speeds would slightly increase further?

    I like that nvidia is adopting this cooler for the 780 too, makes you feel you have an high end product in your hands.

    Atleast that's the impression Titan gave to me :toast:

    Would probably go over their ideal target TDP.

    My Titans go well over 300W when clocked at 1215 Mhz.

    This will be the 9800GTX all over again...

    He was referencing the G92 chip. It was essentially rebranded a few times. The 8800GTX 9800GTX and GTS 250 were pretty much the same card. I flashed a GTS 250 bios on my 9800GTX+ card so I could use it in SLI with my other GTS 250

    This makes no sense, if you're talking about GTX 780.

    GTX 780 is a cut-down Titan. Just like 7950 is a cut-down 7970 and 670 is a cut-down 680 and 7850 is a cut down 7870 and so on and on and on...

    Only thing confusing here is the naming. Titan was supposed to be GTX 780 and this current 780 was supposed to be 770. Now Titan came out early with its branding and some of you were expecting GTX 700 cards to boast something newer than GK110, which is not the case. Look at it this way: Titan is a highest end GTX 700 card and GTX 780 is derived from it, like any other card mentioned before.

    If you're talking about other upcoming cards, though, you're right. GTX 770/760-something should be rebranded/boosted 680/670. Doubt if they will have improved silicon, like GTX 500s did.

    I would hope you got some impression after spending that kind of money on a GPU.

    Drop the X on 8800GTX and you're closer to the mark. 8800GT, 9800GTX and GTS250 were all G92 cards, however, 8800GT had 112 shaders, and 9800GTX and GTS250 had 128. There was a 9800GT released that was the exact same core as the 8800GT.

    Wish someone would snap a picture of the price. Perhaps they can't find a wide enough angle lens. :p

    My guess is he was trying to point out that the 8800GTX and 9800GTX were nearly identical in performance. Not much improved over the "newer" 9xxx series. This meant a 8800GTX became a wise card purchase, lasting well into the days of Fermi practically, astounding!
    In the same regard G92 was an awesome, efficient core that stuck around as manufacturing got cheaper and better.

    I need an official announcement from Nvidia, I'm tired of these candid photos from Chinese websites and rumor mills :roll:

    The correct combination is 8800 GTS-512, 9800 GTX, 9800 GTX+, and GTS 250. They're all G92s with 128 unified shaders, with a few clock speed differences.

    Like the Titan, I would get this card, just for that cooler! Maybe 2 so I can use that sweet SLI bridge.

    Okay......maybe 3 :D

    Not truly to the extant... as the naked PCB are show colored boxes pointing out things missing or different. As to cooling and what-not I'll be surprise if they will offer an exact Titan Original; instead of the aluminum cover bits… replaced with faux plastic, could just have direct touch H-P instead of the vapor-chamber. And a more pedestrian quality fan without the LED lights.
    Let’s not get ahead of ourselves with supposedly just 3 days

    One of the EVGA reps says it's coming soon, likely the same day.

    Givin the specs kinda seems like 780 will have like maybe ~30-35% boost over 680, large due to memory interface being upped to 384bit.

    @2650x 30% is Titan territory now. Figure 15-20%
