GeForce GTX Titan LE GPU-Z Information Leaked

By - Source: Chiphell | B 33 comments

A screenshot of what appears to be a slimmed down version of a GK110-based GPU has been leaked.

A screenshot of GPU-Z has been leaked, which shows some specifications that we can only assume to be a less expensive version of the GTX Titan. While the GTX Titan has 14 out of 15 SMX units on the GK110 core enabled, the Titan LE would only have 12 out of 15 enabled. As a result, the card would have 2,304 cores, 40 ROPs, and 192 TMUs.

It also seems that the total onboard memory would be reduced to 5 GB and would run over a 320-bit memory interface. The original GTX Titan had its 6 GB memory run over a 384-bit memory interface. This would mean that the card would pump 240.3 GB/s of bandwidth.

Surprisingly, the clock speeds appear to be identical to those on the GTX Titan, running at 837 base and 876 boost. The memory clock speed would also remain at 6,008 MHz. While these specifications do point to a card weaker than the GTX Titan, it will still be very potent.

Lastly, the validity of the screenshot can also be questioned. The Device ID, BIOS Version and Release Date have been blurred out. Regarding the release date though, it has already been confirmed that a new GK110 GPU is arriving sometime in Q3 2013. Assuming that these specifications are correct, multiple sources indicate expected pricing to be around $700.

    Haha only $700? How affordable and practical...

    I see the "Titan" series is nothing but spring cleaning of left over parts before next gen hits the scene.

    Makes no sense. With those specifications it will be very close in performance to a slightly overclocked 7970 GE, which costs just 450$.

    It would only be somewhat useful for number crunchers, as a graphics card this would be totally pointless.

    At $700, it is still ridiculously overpriced and it will be launched later, when the Radeon HD8xxx series will be around the corner.

    There is a major problem happening in the industry right now, there are no reasons to buy such expensive videcards anylonger, as no one is developing any worthy game to take advantage. If Nvidia can perhaps shed some of its billion dollar coffers to stimulate proper gaming dev studios to take advantage of needing a Titan, then hey! they might sell more than 100pcs northamerican wide this year. Too bad there is no greasing between the GPU makers and Software developers, all we have is, hey! here's a $30 coupon if you buy 'that' game! PS4 is coming this fall, none of these articles matter to most, anymore.

    I assure you, had Nvidia priced Titan Proper at $500, it would have sold like hot cakes.

    The reason not to buy such an expensive card is that it's overpriced.

    I agree. They should take a page from Steam sales i.e., 10000 units at $1000 is WAY less than 100000 at $500. But I'm just an engineer with common sense, what can we know about marketing and sales?

    I can manage a 7970 crossfire configuration for $700...

    Since the Titan is sold out everywhere, it's difficult to say that it is overpriced from a marketing and sales perspective.

    There's a clear price/performance line up to $250, but cards get more and more overpriced from there up. (I realize this is normal, but it's especially bad this generation, especially since these cards are nearing a year old.) If the GTX Titan had been released at a "reasonable" $599 or so, Nvidia could've taken the opportunity to shake up both vendors' product stacks - and taken a huge lead in sales, even in the light of the Never Settles. 690: $750, 680: $350, 670: $300, 660Ti: $250 - included with the changes they've made to the prices of their lower-range cards, it could've been a landslide with AMD scrambling.

    Titan is what the 680 supposed to be, this is what the 670 supposed to be.

    die size and cost to make that die... i forget what titan is suppose to be but i remember the math telling me it was somewhat reasonable.

    its sli performance without sli problems.

    problem is that crossfire is full of runt frames, therefore you dont physically see any actual improvement

    Just cut the memory to 2560 and sell it for $500-550...

    I would argue that Nvidia already has a huge lead in sales, even with the current prices, and that the "Never Settle" bundle is already an indication of AMD scrambling to keep up. Titan is sold out, the Titan LE will sell out, and the GTX 660 through GTX 680 have all outsold their AMD counterparts by 2 to 1, including 2 to 1 gains in March 2013 at the height of the Never Settle campaign. We all want lower prices, but it just doesn't make sense from that perspective. Unfortunately, AMD needs to be even more competitive, if that's even possible, before we see any real change.

    I wouldn't give this guy a thumbs down necessarily, I have a gtx 680 and no good games for it yet. I mean come on BF3 at 100 fps...whee..40 fps is fine. Most of the public servers are gone anyhow and there are about 2 good ones left. All the good game releases are set around October if they don't get pushed back. Yes, I preordered ARMA 3, but what else is there to play NOW that needs a 680...nothing except metro 2033 because it's so screwy GPU wise.

    $700 just to have Crysis 3 up by 1FPS, money well spent!

    The reason they are releasing a TITAN LE is to use some of their TITAL GPUs that have a defect. They aren't going to throw them in the trash. We wouldn't have things like the GTX 660 and such if the yields were perfect.

    $600 is the most I will go on a single card. Was hoping for that price on the lower end Titan but I will wait for the 780 this Fall.

    Unless you use a framerate limiter, in which case there's basically no problem. People are blowing the FCAT stuff out of proportion.

    Anyways $700 is like the absolute MAX that the original Titan should have been priced. This is still too expensive for what it is.
