NVIDIA GeForce Titan Gets Detailed And Priced
NVIDIA’s next big thing, the GeForce Titan GPU has been hot on it’s heels lately. The notorious graphics card has leaked many times over the past couple of weeks, we also know a thing or two about the GPU in particular. The beast of a GPU beat the GTX 690 in benchmarks by a long shot, it packs pretty impressive features under it’s hood. With that said, we bring you yet another leak (‘leaks’) on the GeForce GTX Titan GPU.
One of the many major leaks include listing of the GPU itself on Proshop, Videocardz managed to dig out information through Proshop who had put up an ASUS GTX Titan 6 GB GPU for a price of 7.276,00 kr (€900, $1300). Although the link was taken down, we did mange to grab a screenshot of the page. The listing also confirms most of the details already known about the GeForce Titan GPU. The price tag in particular is quite hefty considering even the limited edition ASUS ARES II GPU costs around $1200, although it is an initial listing and the price may decrease to the rumored $899 mark by the time of it’s launch. Speaking of launch, sources are indicating a launch of 24th – 26th February, which isn’t far enough.
Additionally we bring you an exclusive tid bit thanks to Wccftech. The exclusive news brings together the PCB of the GPU itself along with leaking some other major features. The GeForce Titan would be NVIDIA’s flagship GPU featuring GK110 core based on a NVIDIA designed custom PCB which is actually the reference design to be used by AIB partners.
The GeForce Titan packs 6GB of GDDR5 memory running along a 384-bit wide interface. The GPU takes a single PCI-E 8-pin and 6-pin connector to run, all and all consuming 300W of power but would actually draw a tad bit lower power of around 235-250W. That remains to be seen. As far as display connections are concerned, the GeForce Titan has a variety. It features 2 DVI, 1 HDMI and a single display connector. The card will only use a single fan configuration to cool the GPU as there is only one 4-pin fan connection on the PCB. The card will feature a dual-slot design with the upper slot used for dissipating heat out of the card. Reports also suggest that the retail version of the card will come with a backplate which is a huge plus.
