Report: GTX Titan II Coming in 2015

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.

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

    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.

    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?
