NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Specifications Confirmed, Plus Latest Leaks (Update)

Published: 19th Feb 2013, 01:20 GMT

Yet another Titan post. This time we have something even more solid than usual. Apparently the NVIDIA website was already hosting the specifications of the new card for a short amount of time. Long enough for Google Cache to copy it and our reader to find it :)

Update: Not only ASUS and EVGA

Galaxy, ASUS and EVGA are not the only manufacturers to launch the Titan. There will be few versions of it. Some of them are missing the Boost clock, while others are clocked at 900 MHz. According to the rumors, this still leaves a headroom for overclocking. Meaning each Titan could possibly be clocked at one GHz. What is also means is that each model will have a different pricing. Friendly advice, if you are really into buying the Titan, buy the cheapest one and wait for someone to come up with a modified BIOS with boost clock unlocked (but some would actually prefer only one clock mode), and of course wait for proper reviews :)


Galaxy GTX Titan with no boost

Apparently not only ASUS and EVGA are preparing the GTX Titan. Galaxy is also one of them. According to the source, the card would consume 235W, while offering only one clock of 875 MHz (there is no boost clock with this card). This is something completely opposite to the next leak (below), which confirms both boost clock and 250W TDP.82417246

 

 


NVIDIA posts full specifications of the GTX Titan

The GTX TItan will offer 2688 CUDA cores. Both base and boost clocks are present. The TDP is now officially 250W.

EVGA Precision 4.0.0 supports GTX Titan

EVGA is also preparing their software to be fully compatible with the new flagship model.

Version 4.0.0 Change Log:

  • Added NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 technology support for NVIDIA Titan graphics cards:
    • Added slider for temperature target adjustment
    • Added option for linked power target and temperature target adjustment
    • Added option for temperature target prioritizing
    • Default EVGA Precision X 3 skin is included as legacy skin for backward compatibility with NVIDIA Kepler graphics cards
  • EVGA VoltageTuner has been upgraded to version 3.4 with NVIDIA Titan graphics cards support.

Thanks to Nigel Harris for a tip!


Performance revealed by XtremeSystems editor

These number are way lower than expected, but as the editor mentioned, tests were performed with non-final version of the GeForce drivers, which might not be fully compatible. We still have to wait for the ‘real’ reviews.

All benchmarks done with drivers so premature they aren’t even launch day drivers… Either 3DMark is way off the ball, or drivers are going to show some massive improvements as the scores I’ve seen in 3DMark paint a much more favourable picture. As I said, I haven’t got game performance info, so I can’t comment on the accuracy of the above.

As for ‘real’ reviews. We have a new 3Dmark score posted by the source. We can easily see a 4 in the front, which confronts every single leak so far.
