NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Specifications Disclosed

The information was sourced and publicized by the VideoCardz.com crew on Tuesday, confirming some previous leaks and refuting others. The new GeForce GTX 760 employs the same reference design NVIDIA used for its previous generation cards (GTX 670, GTX 660 Ti, GTX 660 and GTX 650 Ti) and is designed to replace the GTX 660 Ti in NVIDIA's current lineup. The card employs a cut down version of the GK 104 GPU, with 1152 CUDA Cores, 96 TMUs and 32 ROPs. With a base clock of 980 Mhz and a boost value of 53 MHz, for a maximum out of the box frequency of 1033 MHz, the new card supports GPU Boost 2.0 which is a temperature controlled feature (the cooler the chip the higher the clocks). Stock memory size will be 2 GB and reference memory clocks were set at 1502 MHz, for a slightly over 6 Ghz effective speed. A 256-bit wide memory bus is employed to offer 192 GB/s of memory bandwidth at stock clocks. TDP is set at 170W for the new card, requiring two 6-pin PCIe connectors

Also relevant to the topic is another piece of information unveiled along with the above mentioned specifications, the fact that the GeForce GTX 760 will complete NVIDIA's portfolio for the coming months. NVIDIA presumably awaiting AMD's move before launching any more GeForce products of its own. AMD, in turn, being expected to bring out the Radeon HD 8000 Sea Islands cards in September.

NVIDIA Announces GeForce GTX 770 Performance Graphics Card

NVIDIA launched the business-end of its GeForce GTX 700 series, launching the GeForce GTX 770. Tough to make apart from GeForce GTX 780 and GeForce GTX TITAN visually, the GTX 770 is based on the 28 nm GK104 silicon, configured similarly to the GeForce GTX 680 from the previous generation, albeit with higher clock speeds, GPU Boost 2.0, and a stronger VRM to sustain those higher clock speeds. The card ships with 1046 MHz core, 1085 MHz GPU Boost, and a blistering 7010 MHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. It features 2 GB of memory, 4 GB variants could launch soon.

The GeForce GTX 770 packs 1,536 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs, and 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. At its given memory speeds, it could belt out 224 GB/s of memory bandwidth. To support these higher clock speeds, the card draws power from a combination of 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include a pair of DVI, an HDMI, and DisplayPort. The card can pair with three more of its kind, for 4-way SLI. As predicted, the GeForce GTX 770 starts at US $399. NVIDIA's partners could come out with custom-design cards from day-one.

NVIDIA Releases FaceWorks Tech-Demo to Public

NVIDIA made a public-release of its FaceWorks tech-demo, which was a centerpiece at its GDC 2013 booth, this March. The demo, which uses the same Digital Ira light-stage source material as a similar tech-demo by Activision, demonstrates the GPU's ability to handle complex facial expressions. The light-stage material was captured at the Institute for Creative Technology at the University of Southern California (USC).

Drawing life-like facial expressions that leap over the uncanny valley, is easier said than done. NVIDIA's GDC demo required the graphics processing power of a GeForce GTX TITAN. The demo appears to take advantage of DirectX 11 and NVIDIA CUDA, and is built for the Windows platform. The demo is made publicly available, filed under the "Cool Stuff" section of NVIDIA website.

Are These GeForce GTX 780 and GeForce GTX 770?

NVIDIA's next-generation GPU family is not far away. We're hearing that new product-launches from the GPU giant could be just weeks away, and within this month. It's only natural that some of these cards could pass through leaky pipes, much to our benefit. One such source in China posted pictures of what he claims to be NVIDIA-reference design GeForce GTX 780 and GeForce GTX 770. Both cards feature a design not unlike the $1000 GeForce GTX TITAN. In fact they look identical. It's not the questionable embossing on the cooler shrouds that caught our attention, it's the subtle differences near the PCI-Express interface - location of PCB number, arrangement of termination resistors, etc., that did, and so we're rating this leak highly plausible.

We know from a previous report that GeForce GTX 780 will be positioned a notch below the GeForce GTX TITAN, in NVIDIA's product stack. It could be based on the same GK110 silicon, and could feature 2,496 CUDA cores, and a 320-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 5 GB of memory. It won't surprise us if NVIDIA completely recycles the GTX TITAN PCB, as it doesn't particularly have an over-the-top selection of components, apart from the GPU. The GeForce GTX 770 is a different beast altogether. It is based on a GPU not unlike the GK104, with 1,536 CUDA cores, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 4 GB of memory. To sweeten the prospect of upgrading to these new cards, NVIDIA is dropping in the same sexy magnesium alloy-based cooling solution it used on $1000 cards such as the GTX TITAN and GTX 690.

NVIDIA Launches the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Graphics Card

NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost, its "wild card" for the sub-$200 market. Based on the same GK106 silicon as the original GTX 650 Ti and GTX 660, the card acts as an in-between, featuring the CUDA core and TMU count of the GTX 650 Ti, but the memory bus width and ROP count of the GTX 660. It features 768 CUDA cores, 64 TMUs, 24 ROPs, and a 192-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 2 GB of memory. As its name suggests, the card features GPU Boost. The core is clocked at 980 MHz, which can dynamically overclock itself to 1033 MHz. The memory runs at 6.00 GHz, churning out 144 GB/s memory bandwidth. NVIDIA is looking to disturb AMD's pack in this segment with an aggressive MSRP of $169.99, a 1 GB variant priced at $149.99 is also on the cards. Check out our review here.

MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Pictured

Here are the first pictures of an MSI-branded GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost graphics card. The card features MSI's Gaming Series branding, a custom board design with Twin Frozr III cooling solution, and what could be a non-reference design PCB. As details emerge, the GTX 650 Ti Boost is turning out to be more of a competitor for AMD's Radeon HD 7850 than its recently launched HD 7790. Based on the 28 nm GK106 silicon, it reportedly features 768 CUDA cores, a 192-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface holding 2 GB of memory (memory size printed on MSI's box), GPU Boost, core clock speeds in the neighborhood of 1030 MHz; and 6.00 GHz memory (144 GB/s). It is expected to come out a little later this month.

NVIDIA Working on Second GK110-based GeForce Graphics Card for Summer

NVIDIA may decisively hold on to the single-GPU performance lead, with its GeForce GTX Titan graphics card, but at roughly $1000, it could attract a very small market. According to a SweClockers report, NVIDIA is looking to woo gamers just ahead of Summer with the second GK110-based GeForce GTX graphics card. Similar in specifications to the fabled Quadro K6000, the new SKU could feature 13 out of 15 streaming multiprocessors on the GK110 silicon, working out to 2,496 CUDA cores, 208 texture memory units, a 320-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface holding 5 GB of memory, and 40 ROPs. Given that there's a deep ravine between the ~$450 GeForce GTX 680 and ~$1000 GTX Titan, NVIDIA could pick a price-point in the middle. The report claims the new SKU could launch some time between July and August, 2013.

Support for NVIDIA CUDA parallel programming comes from NumbaPro, a Python compiler in the new Anaconda Accelerate product from Continuum Analytics.

NVIDIA GTX 650 Ti Refresh Could Feature GPU Boost and +50% Memory Bandwidth: Report

With AMD looking to turn up the heat (pun unintended) in the sub-$200 market segment, NVIDIA is reacting with a GeForce GTX 650 Ti refresh. According to specifications reported by Bright Side of News (BSN), NVIDIA will make some pretty big changes. While the CUDA core count of 768 is unlikely to change, NVIDIA could introduce GPU Boost, a feature the GTX 650 Ti currently lacks, and increase the memory bus width to 192-bit.

The card could ship with clock speeds of 980 MHz core, 1030 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory (144 GB/s), compare that to the 925 MHz core and 5.40 GHz memory of the current GTX 650 Ti. NVIDIA is making it a strategic move not to change retail name despite such a major overhaul, so buyers will have to stay on their toes when choosing GTX 650 Ti (thoroughly inspect specifications).

ASUS Announces its GeForce GTX Titan Graphics Card

More slides and benchmark figures follow.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Graphics Card Pictured in Full

Here it is, folks; the first pictures of NVIDIA's newest pixel crunching dreadnought, the GeForce GTX Titan. Pictures leaked by various sources east of the Greenwich Median reveal a reference board design that's similar in many ways to that of the GeForce GTX 690, thanks to the magnesium alloy cooler shroud, a clear acrylic window letting you peep into the aluminum fin stack, and a large lateral blower. The card features a glowy "GeForce GTX" logo much like the GTX 690, draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors, and features two SLI bridge fingers letting you pair four of them to run 3DMark Fire Strike as if it were a console port from last decade.

It's Sony, Not AMD in GeForce Titan's Crosshair

When we first heard of NVIDIA launching its GK110-based consumer graphics card by as early as February, it took us by surprise. Intimidating naming (GeForce Titan 780?) aside, the graphics card is hoping to better NVIDIA's current-generation flagship, the dual-GPU GeForce GTX 690, in a single-GPU package, but does the graphics card market really need NVIDIA to launch its card at the moment? Perhaps not, but the answer lies not with AMD and competition in the graphics card market, but Sony, and competition between PC and console platforms.

Over the weekend, it surfaced that Sony would introduce its next-generation PlayStation console (codenamed "Orbis") later this month, and it would mark the beginning of the next-generation of game consoles. PlayStation 4 features an updated hardware feature-set, and promises to raise the bar with graphics detail that the console industry held with an iron fist for the past half decade. This presents a challenge for not only NVIDIA, but PC gaming in general. Here's how.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 660 Thunderbolt Graphics Card Pictured

As the Lunar New Year shopping season heats up in the Greater China Region, ZOTAC launched yet another innovative performance-segment graphics card, the GeForce GTX 660 Thunderbolt Edition, which has nothing to do with the Thunderbolt interface (sorry to get your hopes up). What this card does bring to the table, are a high-grade non-reference design PCB, and an innovative new cooling solution.

The cooler may look like yet another aluminum fin stack ventilated by two fans, but it's in fact a chunky monolithic aluminum heatsink, with heat-transfer bolstered by three copper heat pipes. It's hence a hybrid between heatsinks and fin-stacks. Heatsinks give you the convenience of easier cleaning as spacing between their ridges are greater, and are generally more rigid. In the pictures below ZOTAC demonstrates how its hybrid heatsink is better than fin-stacks.

NVIDIA to Name GK110-based Consumer Graphics Card "GeForce Titan"

2013 started off on a rather dull note for the PC graphics industry. NVIDIA launched its game console platform "Project: Shield," while AMD rebranded its eons-old GPUs to Radeon HD 8000M series. Apparently it could all change in late-February, with the arrival of a new high-end single-GPU graphics card based on NVIDIA's GK110 silicon, the same big chip that goes into making the company's Tesla K20 compute accelerator.

NVIDIA may have drawn some flack for extending its "GTX" brand extension too far into the mainstream and entry-level segment, and wants its GK110-based card to stand out. It is reported that NVIDIA will carve out a new brand extension, the GeForce Titan. Incidentally, the current fastest supercomputer in the world bears that name (Cray Titan, located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory). The GK110 silicon physically packs 15 SMX units, totaling 2,880 CUDA cores. The chip features a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface.

Leadtek Intros WinFast GeForce GTX 660 Hurricane II Graphics Card

Leadtek rolled out the WinFast GeForce GTX 660 Hurricane II graphics card. Based around the same cooler design as its recently-launched WinFast GTX 650 Ti Hurricane II, the card uses a non-reference design PCB, augmented with the company's dual-fan Hurricane II GPU cooler.

The WinFast GTX 660 Hurricane II features reference clock speeds of 980 MHz core, 1033 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory (GDDR5-effective). It features 2 GB of memory across a 192-bit wide memory interface. Based on the 28 nm GK106 silicon, the GeForce GTX 660 packs 960 CUDA cores. The card draws power from a single 6-pin power connector, display outputs include two DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort.

MSI Intros Low-Profile GeForce GT 640 Graphics Card with Three Display Outputs

Display outputs include one each of dual-link DVI, HDMI, and D-Sub. Based on the 28 nm GK107 silicon, the GeForce GT 640 packs 384 CUDA cores. The new card is expected to be priced around US $90.

Colorful Unveils GeForce GTX 660 Ti World Cyber Games Edition Graphics Card

Colorful unveiled a limited edition GeForce GTX 660 Ti iGame graphics card that's hand-painted to celebrate World Cyber Games 2012 Final, which was recently held in Shanghai, China. Its cooler shroud features streaks and patterns of multiple colors. Why? Because it's Colorful, that's why! In addition to dual-fan cooler that looks more than capable to handle the 150W GPU, Colorful included detachable auxiliary heatsinks that are part of the "Air Kit."

The card features a 4+2 phase VRM that draws power from two 6-pin PCIe power connectors, redundant BIOS loaded in two separate EEPROM chips, and 2 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 192-bit wide memory interface. Based on the 28 nm GK104 silicon, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti packs 1344 CUDA cores. Colorful manufactured very small numbers of these cards, which will be sold in the Greater China region, some of the cards could make it to Europe.
