Report: Nvidia Titan to Launch Feb. 18, New Specs Rumored

By - Source: WCCF Tech | B 68 comments

Today we've come across two good pieces of news on the web: The first being more information of the specifications for the Nvidia GeForce Titan, and the second being a supposed release date, February 18.

Though Donanimhaber  reports that the GTX Titan will not have a boost clock of 1019 MHz and instead feature a base clock of 875 MHz with no boost available, it seems that the card's performance will indeed be on par with the GTX 690 and up to 60 percent higher than the GTX 680. Also reported is that the GTX Titan will carry 6 GB of GDDR5 memory on a 384-bit interface and if one assumes that the memory runs at 6008 MHz, the card will have a texture fill rate of 288 GT/s and a total computing power of 4.5 TFlops (single precision).

Videocardz.com reports that the card will carry 2688 cores, 48 ROPs, and 224 TMUs. 14 of the cores are SMX units.

We've also learned that the cooler will be built from an aluminum alloy and use a vapor chamber for heat transfer. Though it is possible that Nvidia is working in partnership with Sapphire or licensed the Vapor-X design, it is unlikely given the companies history of work on AMD / ATi cards. The card's TDP is expected to be 235 W, with power limited to 300 watts by the use of an 8-pin and a 6-pin connector.

The card will reportedly have a paper launch on February 18 and could hit shops between 24 and the 26 of February. Unsurprisingly, we can expect the card to be rather limited, with only certain manufacturers building the card such as Asus, EVGA, and MSI. Finally we can expect pricing to be roughly $1000, but have also heard news that suggests pricing between $899 and $1599.

    SneakySnakeIs this meant to be a gaming card or a workstation card?


    It's a gaming card with GeForce drivers using the same die as the top Tesla workstation card.

    "the card will have a texture fill rate of 288 GT/s and a total computing power of 5.4 TFlops (single precision). "

    I think you meant 4.5 TFLOPS.

    "with power limited to 250 watts by the use of an 8-pin and a 6-pin connector"

    I think the max spec for that configuration is 300W, isn't it?

    I don't know how I feel about this not being the 700 series.

    is this a confirmation or still a rumor as stated in title :\? Think it should say at least 'specifications revealed' perhaps?

    Cant wait for benches and hope Nvidia give long and proper support for their quick $buck of a card that failed to be something else entirely.

    The release date is confirmed, the specs are not. If you went past the headline and dug into the article, you wouldn't have had to ask that. :|

    Wow I really want one and 60% faster than the 680. But dont want to pay more than a grand, just way too much for a card that will be outdated in less than a year. Even on the fence about $899 price range. But will see when the reviews hit if its going to be worth it. Disappointed the 700 series isnt launching until Fall now the last I heard.

    Reading a bit more, confirmation of the specifications for the Nvidia GeForce Titan got confused with the phrasing thinking it was set in stone. Specs are in the process of being confirmed, sorry i guess it means it's still a rumor.

    no gpu boost so boost hater will like it and can OC the card like mad just like they use to? btw isn't that nvidia have their own vapor chamber tech like since GTX580?

    I just heard some disappointing news. Apparently Geforce Titan might be limited to 1/24 DP, like the rest of the 600 series. I was hoping for something like 1/12, but it's looking like that was a bit too optimistic for this latest generation of Geforce cards. If this is true, I think it kind of diminishes some of Geforce Titan's value in comparison to what's already available, like the GTX 690.

    I know a lot of gamers don't give a damn about DP performance, but it's a little disappointing considering the potential of the GPU that's powering it.

    BigMack70I'm sick of seeing rumored specs for this card... we've been seeing rumored specs about this for 14 months.It's time to see the card for real.

    Wow, where do you get your leaks from? I only started hearing rumors about this card about a month ago.

    Probably talking about GK110 rumors in general, not this "Titan" specifically.
    On a separate note, I hope it doesn't cost more than my current rig altogether...

    Going by the name Titan, yes, but we've been seeing rumored specs for a GK110 gaming card since well before the launch of the GTX 680.

    The GK110 has been out a while now, just not in the gaming community.

    Boost wasn't hindering overclocking as much as the locked voltage. If voltage is still locked for this card and it can't be unlocked, then it'll probably still have unnecessarily limited overclocking capability.

    BigMack70You know what I mean. Do I need to go back and edit all my posts to read "GK110 gaming card"?

    The point is, it was a "rumor" before. It turned out, they made it a workstation card and not a gaming card. Rumors are just speculation. They are often wrong.
