    The GeForce GTX 780 Ti may be the fastest single-GPU graphics card that money can buy, by a long shot, but only to people who game and don't really care about double-precision floating point GPGPU performance. NVIDIA expects you to shell out $999 on the GTX TITAN for full double-precision FP performance at the moment. For all other intents and purposes, the GTX TITAN is cannibalized, but will it stay that way? VideoCardz spotted these pictures of a black-colored GTX TITAN graphics card in the wild, which retains the cooler design of the original, right up to the "TITAN" logo, but swaps out the silver for black. The publication is referring to the card as a sort of "Black Edition." Speculation is rife about what it could be, a GK110-based card with identical core-configuration to the GTX 780 Ti, 6 GB of memory, full double-precision floating-point performance and slightly higher clock speeds, perhaps?

    Inb4 GTX Titan 2880 CUDAs and 12 GB of VRAM just because lol.


    Anyway this could be the reason there are no planned GTX 780 Ti with 6 GB of VRAM.

    Nvidia wants to keep more memory exclusive to its beloved flagship, that's why the EVGA rep was kinda shady about a 6GB 780Ti Classified :)

    I think you'll find that Nvidia, like most IHV's has more than one design team.
    There's also a high probability that Maxwell as a design is already finalized given the lead-in time associated with an architecture.
    Also fairly likely that Nvidia, like AMD is:
    1. Waiting on TSMC and possibly GDDR6
    2. Wanting to wring out as much return on investment on the current (read: in production) hardware.

    Yeah it's not like they are in a hurry of releasing Maxwell.

    Both companies are around the same level of performance so they aren't in need to increase performance.

    They'll probably get around to release something new when the market becomes too stale.

    This is a massively speculative report. Even Videocardz says it is most likely a custom job cooler by an owner of a Titan.

    I don't see any reason for Nvidia to release a Titan refresh. It has the 6Gb and fully enabled DP already. No other Geforce card has that. Also once bitten, twice shy - what price would it release at and why would people buy it? The GK110 can't get faster than the 780Ti's out now (unless with even faster clocks - not realistic).

    Concentrate? You think reconfiguring Kepler parts takes a concerted effort by Nvidia? They haven't had to do any real work in over a year. Maxwell should be the most polished chip ever. Just sucks they're probably going to hold back GM110 again due to a lack of competition. The only hope is if mantle forces them to use GM110 out of the gate.

    if TITAN Will not Hew 2880 opend CUDAs 6GB of RAM on a better klock better than the other 780ti models
    it certainly will not be Reason to Buy if you dont hew 4K monitor or at lisr 3x 27inch monitors .Price does not justify the added 3 GB of RAM. Still the purchase R9 290X with a water block much cheaper and AMD in this case really worked at 1000Hz rather than ~ 800 Hz.
    I want to see the results achieved in a water-cooled R9 290X does not cheer not for AMD not to Invidia. Fact is that many do not know what they are buying and the price of $ 1,000 is too high because we get R9 290X much cheaper with almost the same preformance!
    Waiting for 2X R9 290X! and GTX790ti.

    Titian truly is a specialist card. Those wh bought really didn't waste their money. It may have features and capabilities that they'll never utilize but... Its like owning a Porsche that is capable of going 182 mph. It unlikely the owner will ever drive it that fast , so dose that mean he/she wasted his money? No. Still a porsche. No matter what cost less and is almost as fast, it is still not a porshe. If this is true, its just titian letting everyone else know..ITS STILL MY HOUSE!

    It's not far fetched to have a new Titan if NVidia uses the new 4Gib GDDR5 chips used on the Tesla K40. A 12GiB Titan with 2880 shaders would be a nice step up from the current Titan.

    Well then the R9 290X is a Nissan GTR slightly faster than the Porsche but half the price.

    I would imagine they are, however things being as they are,,they do what they can on the side, I would have to hope mostly folders and crunchers would snap these up though this time around.

    probably would have to sell a kidney and a lung to buy one titan black ed. 290x cf is a better option as is 780sli

    Though this could very well be some sort of Titan refresh, it's just as likely it's simply one of the many early Titan cooler designs the team working on the 690 and Titan came up with over at Nvidia.

    Tom's Hardware did an article on it's development and this looks a bit too much like one of their early designs of the 690.

    Let's add to the rumour mill something more, shall we? :)


    Unlimited TDP, lol
