According to Fudzilla, NVIDIA is planning to split the launch of the GTX 780 and GTX 770 by one week.
The GeForce GTX 780 would supposedly arrive on Thursday, May 23rd, while the GTX 770 could be launched on May 30th. If the rumor is true, then we will indeed see new cards on Computex, only then we will already know everything about them. This is actually very interesting story, because it means we are three weeks from the official launch of the next NVIDIA’s flagship, and yet see no verified leaks about the performance, final specifications or even a picture.
NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 780 is said to feature GK110 GPU with at least 2496 CUDA cores. The card could be equipped with as much as 5GB memory, though it is commonly believed that it wouldn’t feature more than 3GB. This card would also have a wider bus, than its predecessor — 320-bit. Update: It seems that SweClockers have now changed their minds, and now claim that the GTX 780 would have the same bus width as TITAN (384-bit), which is quite unexpected and not sure if possible with the GK110 layout. Yesterday’s SweClockers’ article didn’t give us many hopes to expect a $500 price tag on this card. It it believed that the card could cost up to $700. According to the rumors, the card would be advertised as a 1080p 120Hz gaming solution, offering a constant high framerate at the most common resolution for gamers.
On the other hand, the GeForce GTX 770 would technically be just a GeForce 680 under a new name. As far as the rumors are believed to be true, then this card would be equipped with 4GB memory by default. This is probably the only difference between the reference GTX 680 and the upcoming GTX 770, but again, this just a rumor based on a single article. However they were very specific while naming the exactly model of the GPU. On the other hand, SweClockers are quite sure this card will arrive with only 2GB on board.
Stay tuned for more GeForce 700 series leaks!
