Report: Nvidia 700-Series to Release in May; More Specs

By - Source: BSN | B 56 comments

Some details have surfaced regarding Nvidia's upcoming 700-series dedicated graphics cards

There is a rumor on the web, initially reported by Brightsideofnews, that Nvidia will be launching its 700-series parts next month. Not only this, but a number of specifications have come to light as well. For starters, three SKUs will be released: the GTX 780, GTX 770, and GTX 760 Ti.

What was previously rumored to be the GTX Titan LE appears to actually be the GTX 780, which will likely be based on a cut-down GK110 part. As such, it will feature 2,496 CUDA cores, 208 Texture Mapping Units, 40 Render Output Units, and 5 GB of GDDR5 memory that will run over a 320-bit memory interface.

Moving on, the GTX 770 will be based on the older GK104 part, essentially being a higher clocked GTX 680 with double the graphics memory slapped onto the PCB for a total of 4 GB. The GTX 760 Ti would likely be almost identical to the GTX 670, with perhaps slightly different clock speeds.

MSRP pricing for the GTX 780 is said to be between $499 and $599, the GTX 770 $399, and the GTX 760 Ti $299. While all of these details remain unconfirmed, it would be great if they are true.

    lol at the rebranding that being said getting 670 performance for $60 less that what they are going for that would be nice. The real question is will this refresh bring down the cost of the 6 series ?

    $499 for the 780 would be ok, it's the same as the 680 when it came out. $599 would just be ridiculous though

    Pretty much as expected. Kepler refresh across the line.

    I just don't see a reason to pay for a refreshed card that will likely yield a performance boost that isn't worth the cost. All nVidia is doing is rebranding just for the sake of having "something new".

    Wonder if we'll see a 790 that is based on two GK110 like the 690. Could just imagine the cost of something like that ($1500+ which would be insane).

    Nah the 790 will never be $1500. It will be $1000 just like a 690, 590, 490, etc. The 780 will be between 499-599 like the article says. Seems pretty good since the 4GB 680 is priced around $550-600.

    The 780 seems interesting. The other two? Ya for lower prices but I still think they are over priced "refresh".

    This is pretty sad but not out of the norm for Nvidia. Never again will I buy Nvidia at retail prices!

    Well I've seen some benches with Skyrim + mod eatting up between 1.7-1.9 or ram (it was awhile to lazy to search) but that being yeah why 5Gig if they dropped down to some where between 2.5-3.5 (what makes 320-bit math) which in turn I would hope would bring the price down $50 would be nice. Heck the titan should have been release with 3Gigs and then they could have had the ultra with 6 gigs of memory.

    who needs 5GB of VRAM? The most i've seen is the HD Skyrim pack at 1.5, not even coming close to 5GB. This is intentional bottlenecking at it's finest because they know the guys buying these cards have no idea what they really need and will cream when they see that this card has over twice as much as most any of the last gen cards.


    The community stated it would be crazy to buy more than 1 Gb of VRam for GTA IV. Look what that ended up requiring. Also its considered to be "future proofing" to get more than needed. There are those that will pay the extra since they're using multimonitors. Bill Gates wondered why everyone would need more than 10 Mb of storage space for their emails inbox.

    299 for a midrange card is absurd. 760TI needs to be 249

    this remind me of 8800gts/512-9800gtx-gts250 ... If is a based on a cut-down GK110 , it would be nice to unlock it, but as i see the future, nvidia and ati will never allow this anymore.hd6950 really boosted the sales because of this.....Anyway , i will stick to my 7970 ( reference not ghz ed) until things will cool down with some really new gpu to show off from both sides, if is going to take to long il just throw in a second one since the price are getting lower on reference 7970.

    Maybe becuase skyrim is hardcoded to use only 1.5GB of VRAM max? Ever think of that? Also for those that use 3D vision surround.

    This is great news, some of us game at higher than 1080p for those of you asking who needs 5gb of video memory. 2560 x 1600 max settings thats who. Time to update my 2 x 3GB 580s. With 2 x 5GB 780s !!! Then onto a i7 Haswell this Summer.

    makes me sad. I was eager to upgrade my 580, but I really don't see a reason to. Guess I'll have to wait another year for the 800 series. If AMD would provide some competition against the titan nvidia would have had to actually try.
