NVIDIA to launch GeForce GTX TITAN Black Edition and GeForce GTX 790

VideoCardz: This year is going to be full of surprises. The rumor has it that NVIDIA is planning at least two high-end video cards for the first quarter of 2014. The exact launch dates were not confirmed, but we are looking at a two-months time frame.

nvidia going in for the overkill

kingduqc1638d ago

There is no such thing as overkill...

There's a 120 hz 1440p monitor getting released soon and some 4k monitors witch need those kind of cards. Some people got the money to buy these setup and there is definitely got a market for em.

I personally don't get 2 gpus on 1 pbc, for my need 2 cards on separated pcb make more sens but more options is always better.

I think he is referring to the GTX 780ti which is better than the R9 290X

4k does not matter ,its only a bragging marketing gimmick as the eye can not distinguish past just under 2k resolution
Absolute pointless imho
Am running WT on a gtx 780 and monitor at 144hrz 1900 x 1200 and its enough for me !!!

apologies double post

Bought a 1920x1080 144Hz monitor a few weeks ago. Wanted to mess with it a bit, I was rather surprised when I could adjust the resolution clear up to [email protected] and still get display. Tried playing a few games on my 770, everything played just fine on medium at 45-60 fps no problem.

Really surprised I found a monitor that could almost do 4k for under $400 bucks. Everything, especially really distant objects looked insanely detailed.

PHL 242G5 for those wondering.

"... the eye can not distinguish past just under 2k resolution"

That's not right at all, dear!

It's all about viewing distance and screen size, or rather, it's about our visual acuity and the screen's pixel pitch. Nominal visual acuity is roughly 1 arcmin, so using any screen's pixel pitch you can determine the ideal viewing distance regardless of resolution.

That said, 4k won't be ideal in a living room simply because you would ideally be sat no further than ~4ft away from a 55 inch screen. On the other hand pc users with a 32 inch 4k screen would find the ideal viewing distance to be just over 2ft, which is far more feasible.

"Really surprised I found a monitor that could almost do 4k for under $400 bucks. Everything, especially really distant objects looked insanely detailed."

Your monitor has a physical limitation of 1920x1080 pixels, no matter what resolution you try to push through it. If your screen just so happens to work with a higher resolution feed the end result will be a 1080p picture still, but one that's been formed through down-scaling. You always want 1:1 pixel mapping with the screen's native resolution and the source resolution if you desire the best image quality.

4k does matter with viewing distance and on PC you get more room to work with whether it be a large display or small.

"nvidia going in for the overkill" And you interpret that into 780ti better then 290x? What it has to do with that?

Titans cards are not for gaming, they are for compute btw.

LAWSON721638d ago (Edited 1638d ago )

Nvidia striked back with the 780ti which beat the R9 290x and it was a little better. Now they are coming out with these two cards that will be even better therefore he says they are going in for overkill. Titan may not be for gaming but gamers want them and it was quite popular among them at its prime.

I am not stating my opinion just interpreting what he said. That seems much more likely than calling this an overkill as in being to good to actually take advantage of the hardware. He says going in for the overkill meaning they already beat AMDs best they will do it again with 2 more cards that are even better.(Just speculation from what I read)

Nvida good idea more options !

Mister_Dawg1638d ago

Just launch something that is total overkill powerful but doesn't cost the same as a car.

Is it too much to ask for?

Volkama1638d ago

It's fine to ask, but you're more likely to get an answer from ATi :)

I hate when people say that dual GPU's have say 10GB VRAM because it is 2 5GB cards, well it doesn't stack, you still only have 5GB of usable VRAM. Which is why I prefer a single card with lots of VRAM. Although 5GB will be plenty for most everyone it still annoys me to no end when they go"5GB and 5GB whoooaaaa that must mean we get 10GB"... smh no people, that is the conclusion a first grader would come up with. But anyways interesting news, still way too rich for my blood

johny51638d ago

TSCM has already started high volume production on 20nm process and they aren't even in the top five companies waiting to get it!

I have a feeling these cards are a sad excuse to postpone the 800 series so they can milk the GK 110 chips and because they may not be the first ones to get a hold of TSCM 20nm fabrication.
