UPDATE: GeForce GTX 780 Shown in China

By - Source: Hermitage Akihabara | B 37 comments

The official spec sheet of the GTX 780 has surfaced

UPDATE: It appears that a number of English speaking sources, including ourselves, have been duped by mistranslation. The above was interpreted as an announcement, while in reality the GTX 780 was merely held up on stage, and nothing more. This was not an official announcement.

Image Source: IT168Image Source: IT168The GTX 780 has already been announced in China at the E-Sports festival, a number of days before the official launch in the western world.

The GTX 780's specifications have also surfaced and Hermitage Akihabara have managed to get the official spec sheet. It shows that the card will have 2,304 CUDA cores and a base clock of 863 MHz with a boost clock of 900 MHz. This would create a single precision compute power of 4.0 TFlops. The card's memory would be 3 GB, running over a 384-bit memory interface at a speed of 6.0 GHz. The card would be fed power through a combination of an 8-pin and a 6-pin PCIe Power connector, and have a TDP of 250 W. External display connectivity would be handled by two dual link DVI ports, an HDMI port and a 1.2 DisplayPort.

So far there has been no word on official pricing, but the prices above are the ones currently being rumored. Take them with a grain of salt. The rumors have shown prices as low as $499 for the GTX 780 and as high as almost GTX Titan level pricing. For now we have to wait a little longer for all the official non-Chinese info.

    So it's a light version of the Titan from what I can make out of it. If they price it around $600 there are going to be some pretty upset Titan customers.

    if it actually comes out at $600, nice deal!.
    but I must say it again, people who bought Titan will be pissed...

    I'd love a smaller brother of the titan for 500 bucks... More than that might be a bit too much for me. And let's face it - who needs that much power anyway?

    Nvidia is going to milk this until AMD has a response.

    don't think so. those buying the titan, wanted the best and were willing to pay the premium for it or price wasn't an issue for the extra fps. so far, its still the best single gpu solution out there.

    yep I guess you're right. and there are going to be very happy customers like me who will get a little slower version of the titan for almost half the price..

    What gets me is the rumored 20% performance increase for a $200 premium over the GTX 680?? The Titan and GTX 780 owner can rejoice for a few more months until Volcanic Islands debuts. Hopefully Maxwell wont see any delays, since fabrication transitions seem be a thorn in their sides.

    I'll wait for real world performance figures - but the 770 looks completely out of place at this price point. With the 760Ti offering over 85% of the power for so much less. In comparison the 770 is a long way behind the 780 on all measurable production metrics for 75% of the price (not performance - I don't know performance obviously). The 780 or the 760Ti seem the choices here. For once the mid range looks like a stinker. Which given how good the 570 and 670 were in terms of value per dollar..that's a strange turn around.

    I wish they would have just done this with the 680. I know it makes no sense from a business perspective but I would've liked it.

    AMD did the right thing by discarding Sea Islands refresh for the desktop to wait for Volcanic Islands. Everyone knew Kepler got held back on the 600 Series because the lower end models slightly out performed AMD. The 700 Series is basically what the 600 should have been the same way the 500 Series was what the 400 Series should have been.
    At this point might as well wait for AMD's 8xxx and Nvidia's Maxwell 8xx, which will most likely come within 6 months after AMD drops their brand new architecture at the end of the year. This really is just a milking of the 600 Series and Titan's success in the market.

    The pricing of the 770 makes me scratch my head a bit...the 680 can already be found for that price...maybe they upped the frequency? The price disparity between the 760ti and 770 seems too high.

    These need to be priced at 299, 399, 499 to make any sense at all, otherwise it will be obvious they are just milking every dollar from this until AMD releases there response.

    The problem is the GK110 was never meant to be the GTX 600 series. Its funny that everyone moans about this saying "oh AMD could not compete and that Tahiti was too weak" this is why Nvidia pushed out the GK104 instead...absolute garbage.

    Interesting that NVIDIA creating more products which cost more than their predecessors, at time of launch. Does it mean that there is more value in higher priced products? And compared to older products, does it offer anything new besides upped number of CUDA cores?

    I'm interested to see if AMD is going to follow NVIDIA into price increases for their cards. This seems to be trend for both Intel and NVIDIA.

    Also, if you observe price increases, you may relate to cost/value ratio since $500 would get you either high end monitor, or nice size LCD TV, or build of a computer. Since when prices are justified to be like this?

    Wow.. ridiculous Pricing Nivida. Looks like I'm going back to AMD in their 8xxx..

    So what's the plan? just release slightly better old technology until the next vendor makes his move?

    2GB - 3GB of memory! So is the Titan the new 680? How will this card perform as users move ultra HD monitors or two 2560 x 1440 monitors. I have hard of issues with three monitors at 1920 x 1080 because of inadequate memory. Seems to me that Nvidia just lowered the bar and upped the price on the 7xx family in my opinion.

    I'll wait until then for a real upgrade.
