WCCFTech posted an exclusive first photo of the GeForce GTX Titan, actually a very blurry photo of the exposed PCB. What is known for sure is that it utilizes the GK110 GPU, as mentioned in previous posts.
The picture is quite heavily blurred out, so it’s very hard to notice the details. According to the source, the GTX Titan is using a custom made board, which is actually a reference design for all the manufacturers, but not all of them will release it.
The specification details are now clearer. The GK110-based graphics card will feature 2688 CUDA cores, since the GPU architecture was modified by disabling one SMX. The card will use 6GB of GDDR5 memory across a 384-bit interface. Memory chips are distributed across both sides of the card. As it was predicted, it will arrive with a backplate, to provide better heat dissipation for the memory chips mounted on the back and provide increased stability. The PCB is also equipped with two SLI connectors, which means it will support Quad-SLI configurations. It’s a 8+2-phase power design. Two VRM phases are mounted near the SLI connectors.
The card is already being sent to reviewers. First retailers are already starting to add this card to their databases, which means that the launch is imminent. First reports said that the card would cost at least $900. This price may vary in different regions.
