ASUS GeForce GTX TITAN BLACK and GTX 790 with 6GB memory listed (Update)
First of all, a special message to all those who said there is no TITAN BLACK.
Now the important stuff.
I hereby confirm that NVIDIA is making GeForce GTX TITAN BLACK. At first I wasn’t sure about the name, but now I am.
ASUS GeForce GTX TITAN BLACK (GTXTITANBLACK-6GD5) has been listed for 974 EUR, which means it’s coming very soon. Furthermore we have a confirmation that it has 6GB memory, just as I told you in my previous post. We don’t have the exact specs yet, but I’m almost sure it has GK110 GPU with 2880 CUDA cores and all the juicy stuff from 780 Ti, so basically this is a 780 TI with 6GB memory and full double precision performance.
I should also say that we don’t really know how it looks. To verify whether this is just a painted TITAN, or a completely new design you will need to wait a bit more.
The launch date is set somewhere in next two or three weeks. As soon as the original TITAN gets out of stock, the BLACK edition gets a green light. I can’t comment on the price yet, but it appears that the $999 rumor is finding its confirmation.
Of course TITAN BLACK is not the only card being prepared. NVIDIA is to launch at least three other cards very soon:
- GeForce GTX TITAN BLACK Edition 6GB, GK110, 2880 CUDAs
- GeForce GTX 790 6GB
10GB ,2xGK110, 2x 2496/2880 CUDAs
- GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB, GK106 (GM106), 960 CUDAs
- GeForce GTX 750 1GB, GK107 (GM107), 384 CUDAs
Well it seems that ASUS is also making GeForce GTX 790, but with 6GB of memory! Unfortunately the price is definitely more than $999, which could potentially suggest we have full GK110s on board.
In case you forgot, these pictures where posted a while ago on Chinese forums.
