GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition Listed for Order

The rumored GTX Titan Black Edition has been listed for sale by a Finnish webshop, Multitronic, meaning that we now have some sort of verification on its price.

The GTX Titan Black Edition is rumored to be a graphics card with a fully enabled GK110 GPU aboard. While we already have the GTX 780 Ti that carries this, the biggest difference between the GTX 780 Ti and the Titan graphics cards are the 6 GB of memory (compared to 3 GB for the 780 Ti), as well as the double floating point precision GPU performance. Like with the previous Titan, this means that the graphics card is more interesting to developers than it is to gamers.

There was no mention of the card's exact specifications or clock speeds, though we expect the card to carry the same clock speeds as the GTX 780 Ti (875 MHz, 928 MHz Boost), or marginally higher.

The price tag that the card was rumored to carry was $999, and the listing supports this. The Asus GTX Titan 6 GB Black is listed for €974.90 including tax, and €786.21 without tax. This translates to $1333 and $1075, respectively, which closely supports the card replacing the GTX Titan at the $999 price point. While it clearly looks more expensive, early listings are often found to be priced higher than actual MSRP pricing.

    I don't care about this nonsense. We've been on Kepler for too dang long. I'm ready for Maxwell. I'll dump a grand on a new GPU, but not unless it is Maxwell.

    not sure why people buy $1000 gfx cards since there's really no killer new game that takes advantage of it.

    In fact the titan is only a "money saver" for cuda applications. The respective quadro card is on the 4-5k price range. I'm pretty sick of nvidia making you pay more for the same card with unlocked dp performance.

    Maxwell is going to be like Intel's Haswell don't get to excited till amd just flat out surpasses Nvidia and Intel there is no longer a reason to be excited about the next platform. A GeForce GTX 480 and a Intel Core i5-2500 can still max almost any game those are 3-4 year old parts that is freaking crazy also think of the fact that next gen consoles are=to those parts damn near.

    If we think only about gaming - is having "only" 3 GB of memory an noticeable bottle neck (compared to 6 GB) when gaming on 1440p ? Does anyone knows?

    And only if you dont care for accuracy, these cards dont come with Error correction like the quadro cards do, only really worth using for test runs of applications rather than actual heavy grunt work because of this.Cant wait for people to start defending that its a compute card instead of a gaming card like the titan when it was advertised from the start and still is advertised on nvidias site primarily as a gaming card, but it can also do compute.
