Report: Nvidia GeForce Titan Might Outperform GTX 690

By - Source: WCCF Tech | B 85 comments

Rumors indicate that the upcoming GeForce Titan might outperform the GTX 690, and that it won't be called the GeForce GTX 780.

Earlier we showed you the upcoming GeForce Titan, and explained that the performance would be at around 85 percent of that of the GeForce GTX 690. In light of new rumors, according to WCCF, this might not be the case, and the GeForce Titan might actually exceed the performance of the GTX 690.

Nvidia's GeForce Titan will be based on the GK110 GPU, a GPU previously only found on Nvidia's Tesla cards, the K20 and K20X.

The rumors haven't been verified since PCOnline has not named their source, but claim that it is a reliable source. Their source says that the GeForce Titan scores X7107 points in 3DMark11, in extreme mode, a massive jump above the GTX 690. The GTX 690 alone already scores just shy from X6000 points with the same benchmark under the same conditions. The most staggering part though is that the Titan, a single GPU part, outperforms the GTX 690, a dual-GPU part.

Another leak indicates that the GeForce Titan's PCB is similar to that of the GTX 680, but will carry 6GB of 384-bit memory.

Other reports suggest that the upcoming GeForce Titan will also not be called the GeForce GTX 780, nor will it take a GTX 600 series name. It will simply be called the GeForce Titan, likely inspired by the by the Cray Titan supercomputer, which houses nearly 19 thousand Nvidia Tesla K20X cards.

Availability is rumored to be around the end of February with a hefty MSRP of $899.

    But its called Titan inspired by the Cray Titan supercomputer, which houses nearly 19 thousand Nvidia Tesla K20X cards. So is this a gaming card?

    If it outperforms the 690, it'll outperform the 7990

    DangiSo if Titan is supposed to be 85% of GTX690 how can it score double the points ??Is the GPU optimiced towards this test ??I will not believe this numbers until Tom's benchs one

    It was rumored to be 85% of a GTX 690... But after seeing the tests it seems it might be 10-15% faster than the GTX 690.

    It would be fantastic if this turns out to be true, but I seriously doubt that it is. It seems far more likely that it's either a massively overclocked Geforce Titan, or a complete fabrication. If you look closely you can make out a "GTX" next to Geforce in the results. It could just be an overclocked GTX 690. A GK110 performing that well at stock, or even with a reasonable overclock, just doesn't make sense to me.

    Yes, there's a rumor floating around that Nvidia is planning to release a gk110 based Geforce card in late February.

    So, this is what the GTX 680 was supposed to be until they saw the 7970 benchmarks, right?

    Can't wait to see AMD's response to this.

    I love GPUs. They're amazing. Looking forward to Titan regradles of how it performs.

    But will it outperform 8990 and 790 considering the fact that the Radeon 8000s and GTX 700s series are coming in the spring?
