NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan To Be Released on February 18th (Update #2)
Hermitage Akihabara reports that the final clocks of the GTX Titan are 837/876 MHz (base/boost), these would be the reference clocks. What they also confirm is a single precision computing power of 4.5 TFLOPS and double precision of 1.3 TFLOPS. The final TDP of the GTX Titan would be 250W. It requires 6+8pin power connectors.
First, it’s worth mentioning that multiple sites now claim that the card will be clocked at 875 MHz. The second newly released bit of info is that there will be only 10000 units available. Furthermore I would like to share my findings on the actual price, you can find all current GeForce GTX Titan listings at our forums in this thread
Finally, we have some solid information about the upcoming flagship model from NVIDIA. Our sources confirm that the almighty Titan is set to be launched on February 18th in very limited quantities.
A member (PedantOne) of XtremeSystems forums shared some details, which we confirmed with our Asian sources.
Info from TPU and Donanimhaber is correct. Launch date is correct too. I seen Three Titans today (it looks better then GTX 690, too sexy boards), few Magazines has cards for review.
Performance is few percents under GTX 690, numbers from OBR are correct.
GeForce GTX Titan Specifications
First off, it seems that the specs, which have been floating around the web for few past day, are correct. Forget about the 512-bit interface though. The GTX Titan will be based on GK110 GPU with 2688 CUDA cores. There will be 224 texture mapping and 48 raster operating units. The reference board will almost without a doubt be equipped with 6GB of GDDR5 memory across 384-bit interface.
There is a bit of confusion regarding the final GPU clocks though. First leaks suggested that the core will be clocked at 732 MHz. DonanimHaber has reported reliable, reliable as can be at this stage, information about the texture fill rate, which apparently comes in at 288 GT/s. That’s faster than the GTX 690′s 234 GT/s. Furthermore, the site is reporting that the GTX Titan would have computing power of 4.5 TFLOPS. If the provided numbers are correct we are in the range of 800-900 MHz core clock . The memory however, should not reach the common 6 GHz mark.
GeForce GTX Titan Design
The card will definitely look better than the GTX 690, although the design will mirror it’s dual-gpu brother. The GeForce GTX Titan will be covered with the magnesium alloy, while the whole card will be metallic silver. There will only be a reference design, so no custom models. Additionally, in the first batch there may only be ASUS and EVGA cards available, that’s why we didn’t see any other listings.
GeForce GTX Titan Performance
The card will be slower than the GTX 690. It should perform 55-60% better than GTX 680 and HD 7970. The latest leaked charts were correct, you can learn more in the previous post.
GeForce GTX Titan Release Date
The GTX Titan will be launched in a very limited quantity, only the most recognized reviewers will get the cards. Card will be paper-launched on February 18th, while first reviews should appear a day later, which is normal for NVIDIA — they usually release cards on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
