Report: GTX Titan II Coming in 2015

By - Source: 3DCenter.org | B 22 comments

If the rumor is correct, there might be a GTX Titan II on its way.

3Dcenter.org, a German website, has reported that Nvidia is working on the GeForce GTX Titan II. This graphics card will be based on the GM200 chip, which is not the same chip as the one in the GTX 880.

The website makes a couple of speculations regarding the specifications of this chip. First of all, the site is confident that the GM200 GPU will originally be aimed at the professional and enthusiast market. The chip will likely be fabricated on the existing 28 nm process and is expected to be about 600 square mm, which is huge. It is predicted to have about 4000 CUDA cores and a 512-bit memory interface. The exact number of CUDA cores remains unknown. Given this information, the performance should be about 40 to 50 percent higher than the GTX Titan Black. Perhaps this is the chip that we saw on the new graphics card PCB that was pictured last week.

Zauba.com, where the chip was spotted on a transport list, shows that the value of the chip is 22,245 Indian Rupees. This translates to about $370 for the chip alone, without a PCB. The chip is listed as an A1 revision.

If the rumors are correct, the GTX Titan II should be coming to market sometime during the first half of 2015, with gaming-oriented solutions hitting shelves later. We are not sure whether it will come to market that soon, given that this is still an A1 revision of the chip and is going back and forth between testing facilities. Note that all of the above is based on speculation and rumor.

    First 1999$ single GPU card? or even 3000$ for normal users?
    That chip is huge!

    40-50% faster than the Titan Black? So trading blows with the Titan Z?

    Not interested in buying this in the least. Not even a little bit.

    Attention Nvidia, please some building new ultra-expensive non-gamer oriented cards. You are going to sell 1/10th as many as before because your price gouging is insane.

    Forget all this crap and pressure TSMC for the 20nm chips so we can have our GTX 8 series at a reasonable price.
    Thank you.

    it will burning under load with such huge silicon piece and it will throttle for sure..
    not to mention for its price...

    Ya price will be the kicker. We will see if nvidia and amd is done trying to rape us. I'm still using sli 680s because of retarded pricing.

    exactly, these arent meant for gamers, though you can game on these cards.

    Have you seen the Titan videos?
    I only see gaming being advertised.

    That's because there is no need to advertise to pros, as those people recognize they are getting either 2x perf for the same price with titans, or they're getting the same perf at half cost. Either way the pros get it. Thus leaving the only people to advertise to being gamers. Get it?

    WAY OVERPRICED! I'll take my two GTX880s for about $1200, thank you very much :D

    Titans are meant for pros , they need the cuda cores in computing ,the faster and more cores the better , its all about horse power , and horse power is where the titans belong.
    remember the days of the GTX 580 .

    Cool! Great for 4k gaming.

    I hope this "titan II" is going to be a fully unlocked chip, unlike the original (non black) titan.

    Confirmation that 780gtx was a good buy.

    Ok. What I think Nvidia should do is to rebrand all Titans into Tesla or Quadro workstation cards, keep them out of the gaming market, and return to how their card linups usually were. I'd love to see this:
    GTX 850 (and Ti version of course)
    GTX 860
    GTX 860 Ti
    GTX 870
    GTX 880
    And GTX 890.

    You see, I want the overpriced (for gaming) Titan crap to be gone and instead for them to be replaced with x60 Ti or x90 cards, like how Nvidia did it with the 500 and 600 series.

    Well they're making 1/5 what they used to make in 2007 so they have to do whatever they can to get profits. If it wasn't for intel's gift yearly due the the lawsuit they'd be making almost nothing. AMD just lost another 40mil and stock off 85c now in after hours (20%!). Q3 outlook weak. Not good. We need them both to start making some REAL money.

    So true... If they can not make profit, the only GPU maker left will be Intel... That would be somewhat horrible...

    AMD's doing terrible, and NV's payment runs out 2015. So going forward we need them to figure a way to make more money on both sides. Or you just might be right at some point...ROFL. I can't believe I just said that. I think NV survives though as tegra K1 kicks in and denver at xmas. They will start eating some desktops with that, androidL (64bit) and start shipping FULL fledged desktops with NV cards surely at some point. Hopefully with a triboot of linux and steamos so you have a wide variety of stuff to use that has ZERO WINTEL in it. Not sure how AMD gets saved with Intel and ARM racing to each other and accidentally killing the only place AMD lives (low end). The cpu war is going to crush them in the middle. GPU's barely made money last Q in a mining craze, consoles off 50% last Q and dropping monthly with MS admitting supply easily outstripping demand (reverse of good news, you want demand outstripping supply). Still reading through the AMD data, but it's not looking good. I hope NV has some better news shortly as their Q report hits. No time to listen to the conference call right now, will try to pick it up later, just sifting the data for now. But they can't be saying good stuff, off 83c after hours now it's getting worse. 18.15% stock drop in about 2hrs.

    "Computing Solutions segment revenue decreased 20 percent year-over-year. The year-over-year decline was due to decreased microprocessor unit shipments."

    The crushing of cpu due to the ARM-Intel war at the low end I mentioned.

    Looks like fees (fines?) to GF went up 80mil this Q (probably due to take or pay WSA, not meeting chips shipped), and inventory up 100mil from last Q. I think a hit is coming due to both at some point in the future Q's (GF will probably want their 295mil dec31 again or whatever it is by then, seems growing). Gross Margins down 5% from a year ago (35% now), they need to start selling for higher prices or keep losing money.

    Sorry people cheap pricing needs to STOP from AMD AND NV.

    i was wondering if there is a way to scale a mobile gpu to desktop. like a way of knowing what the desktop gpu's would be capable of comparing and scaling it from mobile using previous gen's as a medium.

    Assuming that GPU Clock Frequencies are the same between Titan_New and Black, a 40% to 50% increase would equate to a range between 3456 Cuda Cores to 4320 Cuda Cores count. Average count is 3880 Cuda Cores. I think it's going to be somewhere near this 3880 Cuda Core count. That's 1000 Cuda Cores more than current "Flavor of the Month" Nvidia products.

    @ somebodyspecial,

    First generation of GTX Titan was 1.8x it's Core Count of it's cousin, the GTX 680. Second Generation GTX Titan, or Titan Black only had a higher frame buffer and 64 bit floating point precision from GTX 780 Ti aka GTX 780 "Titan". GTX Titan-Z is 2 GTX Titan Blacks on a single PCB for 3x the price with a tigher frame-time variance between GPU 0 and 1. GTX Titan had nothing more to offer that justified it 3x price tag, and NVidia needed to get "a" dual-GPU premium of it's own because AMD didn't drop the ball with the R9-295x. NVidia Consumers, their mouths almost literally dropped when they read the release of R9-295x for the first day. If you paid for a Titan-Z, you're really just paying more money with the same features as a 2x SLI GTX Titan Black.... At best, GTX Titan is overkill-premium gaming hardware with some DP action for rendering, folding, etc... If I were to pay $3,000 or more, I'd prefer getting a W9100 just for the 16 GB Frame-buffer for actual content creation and rendering. Anybody who owns a GTX Titan-Z, it's just for bragging rights, but that doesn't last long. In addition, it doesn't say much about the owner...


    @ Hardcore_gamer,

    GTX Titans are for stupid people with fat wallets. GTX Titan Z would have been an ideal card if it were an actual Workstation card. It had the workstation graphic card price tag. Sell it for $2,000 more with the rest of the goodies, and its sells would probably go up. It's 1/4 DP the GFLOPs x2, at 800 Mhz per gpu, it would put the Tesla K40 to shame as an accelerator, but the K40 would still rocks that 12 GB Frame-buffer.
