UPDATE: GeForce GTX 780 Shown in China

UPDATE: It appears that a number of English speaking sources, including ourselves, have been duped by mistranslation. The above was interpreted as an announcement, while in reality the GTX 780 was merely held up on stage, and nothing more. This was not an official announcement.

The GTX 780 has already been announced in China at the E-Sports festival, a number of days before the official launch in the western world.

The GTX 780's specifications have also surfaced and Hermitage Akihabara have managed to get the official spec sheet. It shows that the card will have 2,304 CUDA cores and a base clock of 863 MHz with a boost clock of 900 MHz. This would create a single precision compute power of 4.0 TFlops. The card's memory would be 3 GB, running over a 384-bit memory interface at a speed of 6.0 GHz. The card would be fed power through a combination of an 8-pin and a 6-pin PCIe Power connector, and have a TDP of 250 W. External display connectivity would be handled by two dual link DVI ports, an HDMI port and a 1.2 DisplayPort.

So far there has been no word on official pricing, but the prices above are the ones currently being rumored. Take them with a grain of salt. The rumors have shown prices as low as $499 for the GTX 780 and as high as almost GTX Titan level pricing. For now we have to wait a little longer for all the official non-Chinese info.

    So it's a light version of the Titan from what I can make out of it. If they price it around $600 there are going to be some pretty upset Titan customers.

    if it actually comes out at $600, nice deal!.
    but I must say it again, people who bought Titan will be pissed...

    I'd love a smaller brother of the titan for 500 bucks... More than that might be a bit too much for me. And let's face it - who needs that much power anyway?

    Nvidia is going to milk this until AMD has a response.

    don't think so. those buying the titan, wanted the best and were willing to pay the premium for it or price wasn't an issue for the extra fps. so far, its still the best single gpu solution out there.
  • j0ndafr3ak
    yep I guess you're right. and there are going to be very happy customers like me who will get a little slower version of the titan for almost half the price..

    What gets me is the rumored 20% performance increase for a $200 premium over the GTX 680?? The Titan and GTX 780 owner can rejoice for a few more months until Volcanic Islands debuts. Hopefully Maxwell wont see any delays, since fabrication transitions seem be a thorn in their sides.

    I'll wait for real world performance figures - but the 770 looks completely out of place at this price point. With the 760Ti offering over 85% of the power for so much less. In comparison the 770 is a long way behind the 780 on all measurable production metrics for 75% of the price (not performance - I don't know performance obviously). The 780 or the 760Ti seem the choices here. For once the mid range looks like a stinker. Which given how good the 570 and 670 were in terms of value per dollar..that's a strange turn around.
