Rumour Has It That Nvidia Are Releasing Two More Graphics Cards
If you are interested in anything graphics card related, please just sit back, take a breath and let this news wash over you. Nvidia has two of the fastest graphics cards out at the moment; one being the Kepler GK110 based GTX 780 Nvidia, the other, the aptly named GeForce GTX Titan, also a GK110 Kepler part. There are some unconfirmed reports that two new cards are coming out of the green camp later this year, before Nvidia’s new Maxwell cards releases in Q1 2014.
The first of these cards is a fully unlocked GK110 unit that will get the moniker GeForce GTX Titan Ultra, the God-Card. It’s a card with all 2880 CUDA cores as opposed to the 2688 CUDA cores found in the regular Ultra, so it should receive an impressive boost over an already blisteringly fast card. This is a scary thought; the Titan might lose its single fastest GPU crown within its own generation of cards. Let that stew for a moment.

The next card rumoured to be introduced is a dual-GPU GTX 790. It will most likely have two trimmed down CUDA GK110 chips found in the GTX 780, which is the 2304 CUDA cores–if anyone’s keeping count. The reason for trimming down the 2304 CUDA cores in the GTX 780 is to keep power consumption below the 300W threshold.
That’s what we can expect from Nvidia, taking the Kepler architecture to its fullest, and most likely, profitable conclusion–as I expect these cards will cost a pretty penny.
