Report: Nvidia Working on Second GK110 Consumer GPU

By - Source: SweClockers | B 45 comments

A report indicates that Nvidia might be working on a second GK110 based consumer graphics card.

SweClockers claim that a source shows that Nvidia is planning to build a second GK110 consumer graphics card. Currently, the GK110 is only available in the GTX Titan as a consumer graphics card, but it costs about $900, which is a bit steep for most folks.

Due to the price difference, it seems Nvidia wants to bridge the gap between the GTX 680 and the GTX Titan or GTX 690. To pull this off, it seems the most affordable way to do this is to take a GK110 GPU and disable two of the fifteen SMX-units.

As a result of disabling two of the fifteen SMX units, a still massive 2496 CUDA cores remain. Users could still find 208 texture memory units, 40 ROPs, and a 320-bit memory bus that drives 5 GB of GDDR5 memory.

We don't know what the card will be called yet, so let us know if you have any inspiration regarding the cards naming.

As mentioned, the price of the new card will be between the GTX 680 and the GTX Titan or GTX 690. Regarding availability, the source says we can expect it around July or August.

    Nvidia should Rename the Titan as the Nvidia Titan Ultra!

    Then, this could be the $599 Nvidia Titan GTX
    Then, They should release a $499 Nvidia Titan GTS
    Then, A Repeat of the legendary 8800GT, a Titan GT for $399
    Then, Release a $299 Titan GS
    Then, Rename the GTX 670 and lower it's price to $249 as something like a Titan Mini... take advantage of that short PCB

    There, a Lineup that makes sense! and badass naming!

    Then we can wait a Nvidia Zeus or Nvidia Olympus series!

    Just no Nvidia Jesus series please...

    Uhh, $900 for a Titan? Cool where can I find a new one for that much?

    why are Nvidia making more of these and charging more insane prices? all they gotta do is lower the prices on their GTX 600 series a little bit and work on Maxwell geez...

    Yeah, unless they're planning something even more amazing for the 700 series, I don't see why they don't just sit on this a little longer and roll it into that newer series, instead of these weird, confused, half-baked attempts. This will only up the ante for the 700 series, which isn't itself bad so long as they can deliver on those expectations.

    unless ATI got new line up, there no reason for nvidia lower their price.

    The GTX685 and half 'Mini Me' edition ?

    Well, maybe to go along with the "Titan" naming scheme, this one will be called "Demigod."

    I'd bet that the reason why they don't use GK110 as their 700 series, is because it's not particularly efficient, it suffers from yield issues due to the complexity, and AMD and nVidia are both realizing that throwing more SMX units isn't necessarily faster. The Titan isn't a newer, more efficient architecture, it's Kepler with near double the SMX units that the 680 has. When you compare Titan with a 690 (or 680's in SLI) the only real benefit is less micro-stuttering (a common drawback to SLI or Crossfire).

    These new Titan-derivatives are only being released because nVidia is trying to use the chips that failed the binning process that would have put them into a Tesla or Titan GPU.

    The Titan is already a cut-down version of the server-compute cards. Cutting them close to a 680 would only be a loss-recoup.

    You should be working for nvidia's naming division.

    Well, Saturn has 62 moons, of which Titan is the largest... So plenty of other names to choose from (though only 53 have names if I recall...). So Hyperion, Rhea, Phoebe? Too many to choose from.

    this might be called geforce gtx teen titan joe madureira edition, selling for $850.

    It's powerful hardware.. if you were going to give it feminine names, it should be something powerful like 'Victoria' or 'Catherine'.

    I'll just wait for new architecture, not Maxwell but the next one.

    Well... the Ultra GTX GTS GT GS thing already works, add in a mini for a rebadged 670 with a short cooler and tweaked efficiency, remove the Misleading number system, and Voila! Then they can have a Green Series with low performance GPU like a Titan Green or a Titan Lite...

    And AMD can respond by offering an AMD Asgard Series

    Seriously, they have a lot of employees and they just thought of naming Videocards with badass names now?

    E-Peen buyers will totally dig an Nvidia Titan Series GTX Ultra and replace the SLI name with...

    NVIDIA TITAN SERIES GTX ULTRA TWIN BURST! (YEAH, RENAME SLI AS THE TWIN BURST MODE!)

    When does nVidia plan on releasing a competitive card at the $200 price point?

    The more they do this , the more I get excited about the 7xx series and the longer I will wait for one.
