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.
