First Alleged GTX TITAN-X Benchmarks Surface

Here are some of the first purported benchmarks of NVIDIA's upcoming flagship graphics card, the GeForce GTX TITAN-X. Someone with access the four of these cards installed them on a system driven by a Core i7-5960X eight-core processor, and compared its single-GPU and 4-way SLI performance on 3DMark 11, with its "extreme" (X) preset. The card scored X7994 points going solo - comparable to Radeon R9 290X 2-way CrossFire, and a single GeForce GTX TITAN-Z. With four of these cards in play, you get X24064 points. Sadly, there's nothing you can compare that score with.

NVIDIA unveiled the GeForce GTX TITAN-X at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2015. It was just that - an unveiling, with no specs, performance numbers, or launch date announced. The card is rumored to be based on the GM200 silicon - NVIDIA's largest based on the "Maxwell" architecture - featuring 3072 CUDA cores, 192 TMUs, 96 ROPs, and a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 12 GB of memory. The benchmark screenshots reveal core clock speeds to be around 1.00 GHz, and the memory clock at 7.00 GHz.

I had been reading when that caught my eye... After reading the performance, I can safely say that if that is the real performance of the card its going to be a nice step up (finally). I really want to see them in some games as that is going to be some serious performance if it all maps out!

AMD's R9 390X will be both faster and much cheaper. ;)

If they want $1,000 for this Titan like the last one then it's not for me. Maybe they won't this time since it's rumored to not be great for compute like the Kepler Titan but then I look at that 12 GB VRAM and know that Nvidia is going to stick it to it's customers for that alone. We'll see.

And you know this how exactly?

Anyway, score for 4-way is heavily CPU bound as 980Ti x4 on water can score upwards of 26K
single card result is ok ish.
Physics score is certainly not X99 so hard to tell properly or at least clock speed is low.
980 at 1.65GHz can match this score. If this is Windows8.1 then understandable as that is slower in this benchmark than Windows7

From the specs had expected about 8.5K or a little more from the card. but only time will tell.

Ohhh, be sure when they "surprise" you with that 1300-1350$ price tag! :D

R9 390X will never cost so much.

but how do you know that either?
Maybe you have some insider info that you can share.

So are we going to pay for it based on boost clocks?

So max boost clock in Mhz ~ cost in dollars?

I hope Techpowerup does a really indepth review of this card, just in case nVidia is lying about specs and ram size again.

I think Nvidia is going to be asking for 1300, based on leaks.

So a single big Maxwell can curbstomp a pair of 290Xs while drawing max 275W, R300 is slightly faster than a single small Maxwell and requires a nuclear power station per card, and AMD isn't releasing R300 until June. Ouchies.

Fanboyism is always better than smoking some weird weed as you did.

I just follow all news headlines which point exactly to what I am saying.

I can never figure out all the complaints from people about the price of these cards. Obviously Nvidia knows what its doing, that's why it has twice the market share that AMD does. The high price of cards like these benefits even those who aren't buying this card. It adds money for Nvidia to reinvest on a better performing next architecture, which means for those of us buying the GTX 760/960 or 770/970s, we'll probably see some of the technology passed down.
It's the same thing as cars like the Ford GT or Nissan GT-R, can sit there and complain all day long about the price but the fact is, if you are complaining about the price of it you probably can't afford it even without the markup, so why complain or even care about the price? The point is it's a halo product designed to draw attention to the series and get high end buyers to come to the product line and pump money into it. Both Intel and Nvidia do this to AMD on CPU and GPU side, and I'm sure AMD is trying to figure out how it can do this as well.

Perhaps they like to sit in the court.

If it depends on me, they will never get out of there. ;)

So you're just speculating (and acting like a fanboy).

I think he is dreaming about something. Did he (it sounds like he prefers AMD)actually buy a GTX 970 or is he just full of hatred for people who made a mistake that didn't impact him?

His profile says he's a she but no I don't think Sony Xperia has any love for Nvidia. :p

Ah did not see that. I didn't know a Sony Xperia phone could have a gender :slap:

Dreaming? Did you miss the news that a class action lawsuit was formed against Nvidia over the GTX 970?

1. Its just a username and nowhere is the word phone mentioned, just because a phone has a name does not mean a person cant have it as well.
2. If you did not know phones could have genders, then why refer to Sony Xperia S as a "he" instead of an "it"?

woah hold on slugger, take it easy.

No I didn't miss the news, I'm referring to the "If it depends on me, they will never get out of there. ;)"
Seems like someone really doesn't like Nvidia - they are dreaming of ruining the company

I was making a joke about the username, and i refer to a "he" because i live in a country that doesn't have genders in it's spoken language so I guess the habit of referring to everything as a "he" has just rubbed off. I'm sorry if I offended anyone by saying "he" - i will just call everyone "it" from now on.

1000 processors more than the GTX 980 is delivered 1500x better result and this in 1002hz BC. Up to results of the R-9 295x are some points missing (~ 8650x).
Double precision for gameplaer has no meaning just crazy will charge this excess RAM 12 GB. Typically, seen and an undesirable.:mad: Because those who would need it can afford quadro series. Even output are again captured 2 slot. It is difficult to make disconnecting D-VGA output and with , to get 1 slot back ! is definitely too expensive (stupid developers:banghead:) certainly are not find out of the new 1.2 outputs,. R9-295X outputs must be at least that could be learned from competition,. . 28nm GM-200 To expensive. (wtf 28nm)http://videocardz.com/amd/radeon-rx-300/radeon-r9-390x
