NVIDIA GeForce Titan Features 6 GB Memory – Review Samples Already Shipped

The GeForce Titan comes in late February and would essentially be a full fledge Tesla K20X designed for consumer market. Based on the much powerful GK110 architecture, the GPU would feature 2688 cuda cores and a huge 6 GB GDDR5 memory running across a 384-bit interface and all of which would be useable unlike that on Dual chip cards. (PC, Tech)

Since the next "bar" for games will be the next consoles, i dont see anything really pushing this memory, 4k 8x AA ?

Overkill much.

I didnt mean to disagree, damn touch screen on the iphone
zebramocha  +   533d ago
So,is this the rumored gtx 685? that was to be the real gtx 680 instead of the 680 feeling more like the gtx 570.
NOOBKILLA  +   533d ago
@zebramocha From what I understand, the Titan isn't a part of the GTX 600 or 700 series. My theory is that the Titan is an entirely new line that is above the GTX line. Only hardware enthusiast need apply!! If I'm right I wouldn't be surprised if every card in the Titan series is $700 and up.

Well the bar was already raised for game graphics when The Witcher 2 landed on pc. So when the next gen consoles are around and The Witcher 3 lands on pc, and raises the bar again, cards like this will be useful.

Wtf are you talking!If this card haves more power than a gtx 690 it can sure run witcher3 and all the upcoming games for the next 4 years at 60+fps full specs.Im not calling you idiot...but you must be one of those that think PC gamers must change card every year to run PC game s at max settings...thats not the truth in anyaway.

I love the whicher games, and its GFX looked very detailed, the game itself isn't a technical marvel in the sense of freedom.
What i mean is there's narrow roads and little room for free movement, clearly Xbox based.

Awesome! game though.

@deadfrag

I didn't mean that at all. I was saying that The Witcher 2 on pc is an amazing looking game and needed a lot of power to run at full settings at the time, turning on UberSampling would bring a lot of pcs to their knees.

If The Witcher 3 pushes pcs again, a card like this would be able to handle it.

@DigitalSmoke

The Witcher 2 had plenty of freedom, it is a huge game, and not Xbox based as it was launched on pc first. A stunning game that looks better than any console game on the market.

The Geforce Titan is for people running ultra settings at high multi-monitor resolutions like 5760 x 1200 and up. 6GB will definitely come in handy! I can't wait!
adorie  +   533d ago
This single card ethereal monster supposedly crushes the GTX 690, a dual card beast in it's own right... this is almost unbelievable. @ 1080 or 1600 the titan could run games at maxed settings @ 60fps or above! The 6GB provides so much headroom for upgrading... imagine this in SLI? My head hurts from the thought of the possibilities.
FlyingFoxy  +   533d ago
its a cash grab card not a real next gen card, i would never game on 3 monitors the framerate would be horrible. But i am interested in the next dual chip 790 which should keep my framerate 60+fps constant at 1080P.

Hopefully Nvidia have finally fixed micro stuttering, or ill be going with the 780.

4k resolution !

With a beast like this, next gen consoles are already obsolete.
hellvaguy  +   533d ago
"4k resolution !"

4k monitor only for the low price of $15,000. I take 2 sir.
Norrison  +   533d ago
@FlyingFoxy
An OC 680 4GB is more than enough for gaming at 1080p most of the time.
cyhm3112  +   533d ago
it is very hard for you to think really? Or you really can?
FlyingFoxy  +   533d ago
Remember the "Mars" cards? they were released right before the real next gen cards before.

This isn't a true next gen card, history is repeating and it should be obvious because Titan logically follows Mars, the true next cards will be much better and the dual chip 790 will be much faster and soon to come.

Save your money, you will regret buying this.
ZoyosJD  +   533d ago
The Mars II was dual GTX580s about a year back. You miss the memo?

If this single card crushes the highest end dual GPU card of the latest series this should be the card for PC gamers looking to run 4k 30-60FPS as new games begin to release with higher quality assets for next gen consoles.

This card looks to be next gen for PC.
Norrison  +   533d ago
Next gen consoles won't even surpass the witcher 2.
2pacalypsenow  +   533d ago
good now people will be able to enjoy the high end 600 series for lower prices (670-680-690) since this will cost less than the 690 and be much more powerful
decrypt  +   533d ago
Just how PC tech works ;-) buy a part for 300 usd today, 1 year later the same 300 usd will fetch you a lot more power.

The industry moves on, doesn't get static.
N0S3LFESTEEM  +   533d ago
The titan is roughly 85% of the performance of a 690. It's not more powerful but it is a single GPU solution. 2 in SLI and you'll be set until the 890's.

What a beast

i want one!

the goes next gen already
adorie  +   533d ago
This card feels like 2 gens over this one.
That is a lot of memory that won't be used.. Wow!
chukamachine  +   533d ago
OMG, that's more memory then my brain.

Wow did I really say that.
ambientFLIER  +   533d ago
A brain stores more information than the biggest hard drive. Certainly more than 6gb. Unless yours is damaged.
N0S3LFESTEEM  +   533d ago
Most likely corrupt clusters... all that damn porn
FlyingFoxy  +   533d ago
I am pretty sure this card is one of those Cash Cows like the Mars cards they released before, barely any faster than top end cards. They cost a bomb and price will drop like a rock since real next gen cards are just around the corner, i'm waiting for 780 or 790 if they have solved microstuttering. That should fix my fps needs at 1080P.

it's just a stop gap cash grab.

Save your money for the 790, trust me it's not far away and will be a similar
price to this overpriced p.o.s and much faster.

The Titan is by Nvidia, which I'm sure the hardware people will do their thing with their heatsinks and naming or what have you, but the Mars is done by ASUS.
They just take existing hardware and do things their way. Funny thing is, you'll probably see a Mars version of this card,then you'll be half right. LOL!

There's a difference, at least to me. I may not even be explaining it properly.
deadfrag  +   533d ago
Microstuttering IS not a problem of nvidia cards!Its driver related with all cards and most of the times microstuttering is cause by bad code and a bad optimize game!!Farcry3!!

wtf, wow. I guess Ill just wait to upgrade then.
soultecc  +   533d ago
i cannot wait to get me one of these
ThatGuy2  +   533d ago
Wait a few years till they announce another titan... then I would get one :D
Tone  +   533d ago
I will be content with my 680 sli for the next few years! No way am I upgrading this soon dammit!
ninjahunter  +   533d ago
Holy sheesh haha, Imagine the laptop version of one of these cards, Were getting into full time desktop replacement levels of power here XD
hellvaguy  +   533d ago
Laptop are about 1.5-2 years behind whatever the desktop version is. But ya that's still pretty insane.

@RuperttheBear

Nope you clearly don't know what you're talking about.
freedom means you can walk off the road into the forest and back criss cross, not only on the laid out road plan.

since you had no idea on how Freedom work in a game i'm prety sure you lack knowladge of the power this will take from the ram and CPU.
RuperttheBear  +   532d ago
The game has large areas to explore, with many different quests to take with many different outcomes. It has an enormous amount of freedom, the game needs to be played several times to get the most of this freedom.

Something you clearly don't understand.

And the game needed a good graphics card to make the most out of it, something else you don't seem to understand.

It's okay, you can learn online :)
Whitey2k  +   532d ago
since they benched mark this gfx card using a 2600k cpu im happy :)
