    Cheaper than two 680's, but many still went that route.

    This is the higher end of high end so shut up and pay if you want the most powerful single GPU in the universe. That's the message here. Premium product from a premium brand. They can launch whenever they like at whatever price, I don't see AMD having anything close to GK110.

    Well, if this is what Kepler was 'meant to be' then it explains a lot. I can't see AMD coming close to this but then again, if the Sweclockers info is correct, that price for a single gpu is terrible.
    Remember, this will be out 14 months after the 7970 released and it looks like it's the old Nvidia technique of massive die size. One monolithic gpu to rule them all, as it were.

    I wish we knew the whole truth about this card. Is this to the GK100 what the 580 was to the 480? Is this the card they couldn't make a year ago? Remember the initial rumours were that Nvidia were going to learn from the past and release the lower end cards first? Maybe it's taken this long to get it right (and they didn't have to rush due in part to the initial low clock and immature driver performance of the 7970).

    This looks like the card I wanted 1 1/2 years ago but not at that price. :ohwell:

    You beat me to it:

    well the 7970 ghz edition still has more tflops than the k20x lol

    awesome. so now instead of running the most demanding PC games on max settings at 100FPS we can run them at 200 FPS.

    Please stop folding

    Please spare me the battling disesase, curing cancer Phrase.
    There are allready known means to cure each and every disease one can think of. The fact they are kept hidden from public, and you have no clue about it, thats another thing my friend.
    One of these means is 5000 years old. Lookup Amaroli on google, check Fasting too.

    The one ruling the world, who purposely try to kill as much of us as possible, dont want these knowledge loose, thats why they are not generaly accepted, nor reasearched, but they do work let me tell yah that.

    And nobody needed 2880 CUDA GPU to come up with these cures let me tell yah that.

    Bassicaly, these FOLDING at home sh.it, is using your resource, your electricity, your money, your work, for god knows what, that only they, the elite few will have in the end acces to.
    So you, the poor user, gets nothing in the end, your money are beeing taken, and dont kid yourself, you wont be getting any cancer cure anytime soon.

    Poor fools ! Imagine all these folding team, burning electricity, and besides a place in a highscore list, get nothing in return.

    AMD cards have hard higher theoretical performance numbers for a while now, the key word being theoretical.

    Take the 5870 @ 2.72 tflops vs the GTX 480's measly 1.35 tflops for example. Doesn't exactly paint an accurate picture of a cards performance.

    Nope, but thanks anyway. If this will really be ~$900, I can't imagine it will get anything but murdered in the price/performance aspect (at least), by a Radeon HD 8970... which will also bring a little more something than just "beefier specs"... AMD's new found driver love for GCN (as opposed to launching barely tapped technology, like it was the case for HD 7000 for a long time... might still be too... que Catalyst 13.2b "Latancy fix" drivers here).


    Edit: Neah... Honestly, they should probably name it GTX 685 (Ti) or something...

    I am now waiting for the news headline "Crash of the Titans, Nvidia Hardware Failure Rampant!".

    Who needs teraflops when this is supposed to bring megaframerates.

    the 5870 could probably compute better in boinc milkyway@home without a problem

    Waiting for GK110 since autumn already, when rumours quietly signalized GTX780. Hopefully coming in march in time for to be fed with GTA V.
    Time to leave GTX680SLI and pimp up my gaming rig? Not sure. On the other hand GTX680 is a great card in single mode, but tends to be a bit warm in SLI, no need to heat my gaming chamber in winter.
    Yes, I think I will not be strong enough to resist this card - given that, it doubles performance. Early speculation talked about only 30% increase what would be a no-go.


    Just found this:

    GeForce Titan, GeForce Titanium, GeForce GTX 780 Ti Specifications:

    Kepler GPU with 2688 CUDA Cores
    6GB GDDR5 memory
    Core Clock: 732 MHz
    Memory Clock: 5200 MHz
    MSRP: 899 USD

    6GB video ram would be great

    1k with tax? LOL Not in a million years.

    OC two 670s and spank this stupid card back to nonexistance.

    And who are buying these as compute cards? They must be higher than a kite.

    why not let Asus or MSI put a better cooling option on it.....

    or better yet, let 'em redesign the pcb and power delivery....:rockout:


    speak for yourself....im all in for a free and open net....

    do i agree with all he says....no

    is there SOME truth to what he says.... yes


    i no more want him censored than your ability to tell him to fuck off....

    But understandable.
    What do you do when you want high profile PR (reviews) from consumer hardware, but would rather sell the die packaged as a Quadro or Tesla board for a whole lot more?

    The pricing would likely cover any lack of actual availability, while ensuring (as a reference single GPU SKU) that it sits comfortably atop the benchmark charts even after the next round of releases. Kind of takes the pressure off the GK114 I would have thought.

    So yeah, crap price, but wasn't it always destined to be if the GK110 made it to GeForce branding?
    Nice flamebait.

    It's not flamebait, that's what immediately came to mind when I read the article and saw the name Titan.

    :wtf:

    Anyway...


    February sounds good.

    Great sounding card indeed.bit dear for me though but it wont double the gameing performance of a 680 thats just wishfull thinking.
    As for amd, they are well aware of this chip which imho should mean an apprpriate re action at some point.
    The next few months will make good reading :)

    also whats the compute pro version gpu clocked at?

    1st comment: Remember this is a very early report. We had reports about the GTX 680 costing 800 Dollars early on too. - So I wouldn't get to worried yet.

    2nd comment: Also AMD has not tipped their hand on how the HD8900 series will perform. (And I don't mean the HD8000M series which is a refresh. I mean the real HD8900 series) So if AMD has something to compete with this card..... Nvidia will not price this card at 899 Dollars.

    3rd Comment: Even if AMD can not compete straight out the gate.... we have seen how that works well for us being the end consumer. That would mean we may see another GTX 280/285 vs HD4870 price battle..... Which would be great news for all of us. If you ask me.... Nvidia can keep their over priced card that can perform 25% better then the HD8970. I would get 4 HD8970's for the price of two Titans and have much more fun.

    All speculation until we hear some real proof.... this article is not enough for me yet.
    Lionheart says thanks.
