    Specifications of NVIDIA's upcoming high-end graphics card, the GeForce GTX Titan, which were reported in the press over the last couple of weeks, are bang on target, according to a specs sheet leaked by 3DCenter.org, which is allegedly part of the card's press-deck. According to the specs sheet, the GTX Titan indeed features 2,688 out of the 2,880 CUDA cores present on the GK110 silicon, 6 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 384-bit wide memory interface, and draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

    The GeForce GTX Titan core is clocked at 837 MHz, with a GPU Boost frequency of 876 MHz, and 6.00 GHz memory, churning out 288 GB/s of memory bandwidth. The chip features a single-precision floating-point performance figure of 4.5 TFLOP/s, and 1.3 TFLOP/s double-precision. Despite its hefty specs that include a 7.1 billion-transistor ASIC and 24 GDDR5 memory chips, NVIDIA rates the card's TDP at just 250W.

    More slides and benchmark figures follow.

    The next slide leaked by the source reveals key features of the reference design cooling solution, which uses a large lateral blower that features RPM and voltage-based speed control on the software side, a vapor-chamber plate that draws heat from the GPU, memory, and VRM; and an extended aluminum fin stack that increases surface area of dissipation.

    Next up, we have performance numbers by NVIDIA. In the first slide, we see the GTX Titan pitted against the GTX 680, in Crysis 3. The GTX Titan is shown to deliver about 29 percent higher frame-rates, while being a tiny bit quieter than the GTX 680.

    In the second slide, we see three GeForce GTX Titans (3-way SLI) pitted against a pair of GeForce GTX 690 dual-GPU cards (quad-SLI). In every test, the Titan trio is shown to be faster than GTX 690 Quad-SLI. In Crysis 3, GTX Titan 3-way SLI is shown to be about 75 percent faster; 100 percent faster in Max Payne 3, 40 percent faster in TESV: Skyrim, and 95 percent faster in Far Cry 3. Why this comparison matters for NVIDIA is that if Titan does end up being a $1000 product, NVIDIA will have to sell three of them while offering something significantly better than GTX 690 quad-SLI.

    nice, if it was $499 I might bite, but 700/900 w.e price its going to be, hellz no.

    ~30% more than a 680? Well that's a bit underwhelming. :wtf:

    For the price to performance ratio I will be hoping that once prices normalize the card would be around $700-750. If its anymore than that I don't know if anyone will really bother buying it apart from people with heaps of money to blow on the best hardware.

    But is it 30% more expensive than a GTX 680? :)

    Im pretty sure thats not even with certified Titan drivers too.

    The chance of this card being $499 is about at the same level that the world was going to end in 2012. Absolutely ZERO chance.

    quick question: will they keep the compute performance (especially DP) intact or will it be crippled just like Fermi was?

    @renz496: Well... since this is Nvidia we're talking about you can bet that it will be totally crippled... The other question is of course what happens if you put a Tesla vbios on that thing. Most likely won't work either.

    If the $1000 rumor is true, it's over 120% more expensive.

    If you RTA you'll note that the FP64 figure is quoted as 1.3 TFLOPS- which is ballpark for the 1/3 rate (FP64:FP32) that the GK 110 has natively with the K20 (and presumably K6000).

    Quick math says
    837 * 2688 shaders * 2 op/clock = 4499.7 TFLOP FP32 / 3 = 1.5 TFLOP FP64

    I know for a fact W1zzerd has been toying around with this GFX for a while now. The official W1zzerd review its about time,...

    What about DP? I'm sure that is still being crippled, otherwise it seriously dilutes the price/performance of the K20.

    Remember that Hooker and that night of drug abuse. You were talking in your sleep about the review you were writing up. Worst part is, that hooker wasn't a she.... :eek:

    Well, FP64 = Double precision.
    I'm also going by the available information in the leak.
    As for diluting the K20/K6000, that has usually been the case of artificially limiting FP64 performance in gaming cards. Maybe the Titan is a special case- if so, and the user requires FP64 but has no need of ECC memory or pro drivers and 24/7 support, then the Titan makes an attractive alternative to a $3K Tesla K20 or $4.5K K20X

    Its not that much faster. For Crysis3, 37 fps vs 48 fps...isnt that closer to 25%? It aint that much faster than a 7970 Matrix, maybe 10-15% and they want $900 or something?. Fark, underwhelming.

    The way they were talking I was expecting a good 50% faster than a 7970 or 680.

    Thanks. So that means around £800 here in the UK. Wonderful. I can get two 7970 GHZ for that or less than that.

    I don't have to spell it out,... remember the EVGA GTX670 FTW SIG2, GPU-Z screen shot, something never got released and you had it and it hasn't been released so i guess it will come out with Titan, instead they gave us a higher version, than what you had.

    same. my 7950 at 1200 core does the job just fine thanks, have fun wasting your money ;)

    my 7950 only cost me $200 as well, after I sold the 3 free games it came with :)

    Despite being a long time Nvidia fan when it comes to graphics:

    >Assuming a release price of $900, it would be ~$1150 here in my country (in Yurip) after including all the taxes an sh*t.
    uhm, ghey.
