New card line could cost users over $1,000
Nvidia's next graphics processor line could be announced by the company in the next few days, and will share it's name with a Kepler-based supercomputer. Leaked details for a graphics processor dubbed the GeForce GTX Titan suggests it will be the new flagship GPU for Nvidia, and will come with a hefty pricetag when it is formally revealed on February 18th.
A GPU database at TechPowerUp shows a GPU labelled as the GK110, though the overall title for the card is the Titan, with 6GB of memory, a GPU clock of 875MHz, an effective memory clock of 6GHz, and uses over 7 billion transistors on a 28nm level. It is expected to have 2688 stream processors, 224 texture units, and 48 raster operating units, as well as a theoretical floating point performance of 4,700 GFLOPS.
While it is being launched on February 18th, it is said by TweakTown that less than 10,000 of the Titans have been made, and cards bearing Titan could end up with a price tag over $1,000.
