Report: GeForce Titan Boost Frequency Possibly 1019 MHz

By - Source: WCCF Tech | B 41 comments

Another listing has showed up with Nvidia's upcoming GeForce Titan, this time showing some specifications that are admirably higher than previous rumors have shown.

There's been no shortage of rumors over Nvidia's upcoming GeForce GTX Titan and we can't help but be impressed by the latest reports that the Titan will deliver truly jaw-dropping performance at an equally staggering price.

According to an Australian online retailer, as reported by WCCF, the GTX Titan will feature 6 GB of DDR5 memory, a 512 bit memory interface (rather than 384 bit), a base clock of 915 MHz (instead of 732 MHz) and a boost clock of 1019 MHz.

It therefore seems that the GK110 chip in the consumer Titan card might actually be quite different from the GK110 chips in Nvidia's professional Tesla K20 and K20X cards.

With the increased performance has unfortunately come a dramatically increased price tag. The already incredible retail price of $899 is now is listed at a frankly insane $1599. While it is unrealistic to expect the GTX Titan to arrive with a sub-$1000 price point, the estimate of $1599 seems a bit too far-fetched.

    6 GB GDDR5 on 512 bit interface makes no sense at all. I would expect either 4 GB or 8 GB, not 6. Stupid rumors....

    I just can't imagine the power of this card! (both performance and power draw)

    If they do sell for that price then only very few idiots would buy it. I could make a nice rig with that money and be satisfied with a 7970 or GTX 680. I hope that all of this is speculation and nothing is set in stone. If they bring it out and make it 800 then some of us will consider it but above that, heck no!

    A little too much from us to pay $1599 on a graphics card? It better outperform a Tri sli GTX 680 plus be more efficient and can be quad sli

    By the time it gets released you'd probably would be able to buy GTX 690/Devil 13 HD 7990 for a decent price, instead of HD 7970/GTX 680.

    Lol at first I thought the boost clock is 1019 MHz from the base clock of 732 MHz XD. And really $1.6k? This is one of the most expensive cards ever released for Geforce.

    GK110 is long overdue!

    Good catch! I think that alone is enough to debunk this particular rumor...

    If it beats the 690 easily its still not worth $1600 which I could afford but refuse to buy at that price. If I can snag one at $900 I will bite but not much more than that. Its going to be a long wait until the 700 series from Nvidia after this card hits.

    "the estimate of $1599 seems a bit too far-fetched"

    I think it's safe to say that pre-release price estimates for these sorts of things are rarely accurate, and often inflated. Pricing around the $1000 area seems far more likely, although I agree that a sub $1000 price point would be more reasonable. $800ish? ...please? ...nope.

    I'm really not sure why there's been such astonishment at the higher clock speeds. Like I've said before, I would be surprised if the Geforce Titan had the same or similar clocks as its Tesla counterpart. Geforce cards have traditionally been clocked higher than their Tesla or Quadro equivalent, and as far as I've seen there's been no evidence to suggest that the situation would be any different this time around, which is why I've been skeptical of the rumored specs for the card up til now. Everything was exactly the same as the Tesla K20X. I think someone either got confused or simply didn't know what they were talking about, and posted the specs for the Tesla K20X as the Geforce Titan.

    I'm also a little skeptical about this new 512-bit memory interface rumor. If I'm not mistaken that would require a revision of the memory controller on the GPU, and it seems unlikely that Nvidia would revise GK110 specifically for their Geforce cards. In other words, I don't think it's possible to simply strap an existing GK110, designed around a 384-bit memory interface, to a 512-bit interface and realize the additional bandwidth. The memory capacity is another clue that seems to further contradict this story, which is still rumored to be 6GB. If it were a 512-bit interface, I would expect to see something more like 4 or 8GB on the card.

    I think an intel p4 3.20 ghz dualcore can support this gpu without performance loss lol . $1600 very cheap lol.

    How did they make 6GB VRAM work with 512-bit interface? If we're following simple logic by which graphics cards abode for years, there'd be 4 or 8GB, not 6.
    What a bunch of horse****.

    Crossfire or sli can beat this and low cost too . 384 Bit x2 is greater then single 512 bit.

    Well this will take the cake for worst value buy on the planet if that price is accurate. Plus early benchmarks have shown it is indeed 85-90% the power of a 690. It'll have to be beautiful for me to give it a thumbs up.

    P.S. - I hate these $(@*&$(#* spammers on here talking about their fetishes for their sister and fake at-home jobs.

    lol, buying a 680 is one thing, but 1.5k, not practical

    Nvidia has had cards with memory capacities not related to their interface width since the GTX 460 192 bit 1GB. They can make a 512 bit 6GB card if they want to. I don't see any good reason for it, but they could do it.

    The price is an Australian price... The GTX 690's were exactly the same when they were first released over here..

    Expect around $1000 USD for the card..
