NVIDIA GeForce Titan Is Not GTX 780 – Performance Surpasses GTX 690

A bucket load of rumors have hit the net with various chinese forums leaking details of NVIDIA’s upcoming flagship mammoth ‘GeForce Titan’. The NVIDIA GeForce Titan was leaked only a week ago showing that it NVIDIA would be launching a GK110 based consumer GPU at a price point of $899.

This is Nvidia's Pro Graphics and compute card for doing Auto-Cad, Dev stuff, and High end Rendering stuff.

also it acts as a Compute card to do massive calculations.

It is NOT a every day Gamers Graphics card!

Ok, here is my problem with the rumor. The rumors started saying that this new Titan card would achieve about 85% of the power a 690 has, which a lot more believable than the card being more powerful than a dual GPU that just launched the previous gen.

I can't possible believe the info in it because they mention AMD's HD 8000 series. Which for anyone who follows tech news for computer hardware knows that the HD 8000 series is already available Q1 2013 for OEM parts. For companies like Dell, Alienware (owned by Dell), HP, and other computer manufacturing companies. The HD 8000 series is not the next level of consumer GPU's from AMD.

End of rant.

What you have said may verily be true. But 8800 ULTRA did outperform the dual chip 7950GTX

Maybe, but it isn't unheard of that Q1 launches are moved to Q2. OEM's usually get them first, and it's possible the OEM's get them very late Q1 and stores/new egg get them early-mid Q2.

I don't understand what you mean about the 8000 series unless you think they're changing the nomenclature for its next line. Their current series is the 7000 series.

This is still a big rumor, and I do share some skepticism since when the pro cards were released the numbers shown made it incompatible with gaming in any significant way compared to their GTX line, it is an intriguing possibility if it can.

It'll be interesting to see how an ATI 8000 series (or whatever it's named) measures up to the rumored power of the Titan. Though if that is it's name it better be powerful like they said or else the name is a waste and bad idea.

The reason I said that about the 8000 series comes down to the specs.

If you look at the specs, the high end 8000 series cards are re-brands of the high end 7000 series cards. Nothing different. The low end 8000 series cards are re-brands from even older generations.

They would be selling old hardware with a new name if they released it to the general public for sale after making it available as OEM parts.

And remember skipping a branding generation happened before. Look at the GTX 300 series, it only exists as OEM re-brands.

THAT GPU IS A BEAST!!!I have a gtx680 and ill wait about another 4 or so years before i buy a new gpu.....

My problem with Nvidia is when they release those rediculously overpriced (mars?) cards that cost £800 (around $1300) that are at most 10% better than the high end cards that cost half that price! what a huge waste, if they are going to release a card like that then it should be at LEAST 2x faster than their fastest card. Instead it's just a dumb cash cow, which i really don't see being milked.

However, i find that when we get bad resource hogging games like Crysis the difference between a mid end card to a high end card is not much at all. They need to make regular high end cards have more performance to be worth their cost.

Saying this, i can play all i want like Left 4 Dead 2 and Killing Floor fine maxed out on my 5870 without worry of the framerate dropping below 60fps, even my 8800 GT's in SLi couldn't do that before. I got my 5870 on launch and haven't needed to upgrade it yet. I definitely will when Source engine 2 is announced though.

Everyone has a different threshold for buying a card, and it's all up to them to justify the price.

But you have some things pretty majorly wrong.

The top end card in the states cost $999-1099, which is a big difference from $1399.

It WAS close to 100 percent better, not 10 percent.

The GTX 680 was 10 or so percent better than the GTX 670 (what I have) but these cost $399-449 for the 670 and $499-599 for the 680.

I had the 5850, the card 10 percent slower than the 5870, and the GTX 670 floors the 5850. It's well over 2x it. Took games running in the 20's to 60's or above.

Graphics have advanced majorly since Left for Dead 2. That's really not a demanding game and hasn't been for many years. The GTX 670 can run it maxed out at 1080 and pull over 220fps whereas BF3 on ultra looks amazing and runs at ~60fps.

Crysis 3, Far Cry 3, Metro 2033 (and I'm sure the upcoming one Last Light) are even more demanding.

Hey buy what you need, and I hear you with Valve's next step, but there have been significant advances since Left 4 Dead 2.

While the ATI 5XXX line was a DX11 part, it really wasn't powerful to use it well. But since last year the mid range cards have been rocking DX11 games like how DX11 was made to be rocked.

This titan card is a beast, and the GTX 7 line should be insane. If that isn't a Maxwell card and is still a Kepler one, then the GTX 8 line is simply going to be amazing.

Personally I feel I'm good and will reevaluate if I need to upgrade when Star Citizen comes out in late 2014. Even then I could rock this card for another 3 years.

Damn technology moves along fast.
My EVGA NVIDIA GTX 660ti will hold me over fine for the next 4-5 years.

Feralkitsune2088d ago

fuck yea it does, I'm still getting along fine on my 465gtx. lol

jmc88882087d ago

It definitely can if one wants or needs for it to.

As with any card you'll need to lower settings as years go by (as lower settings will = what they are at higher settings today), but it definitely run games beautifully for years.

Also double the raw power of the rumored 720/PS4, and even after years of design advantages and as people get used to coding on the new systems should still be decently more powerful.
