Report: Nvidia Working on Second GK110 Consumer GPU

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...
