Yesterday and today every graphics card maker announced their GeForce GTX Titan X graphics cards. Almost all of them have the same reference design on them. EVGA was one company that not only announced a a Titan X with the reference cooler, but also one with a custom full-cover waterblock installed. This is their GeForce GTX TITAN X HydroCopper.
Well it is finally official! NVIDIA has formally launched its GeForce GTX Titan X flagship graphics card at it s own GPU Technology conference today. While we knew most of the specifications from previous leaks, the card is based of the new Maxwell GM200 silicon. The Titan X will have 3072 CUDA cores, 192 TMUs, 96 ROPs, and a 384-bit GDDR5 memory interface that holds 12 GB of memory.
AMD recently showed industry partners, likely add-in board partners a presentation on the upcoming Radeon R9 390X. The presentation was leaked to the web via photographs taken of the slides and they look quite legitimate. The first slide shows the official specifications of the card. The first thing that sticks out is that the R9 390X WCE (water-cooled edition) will have 4096 stream processors! That is quite a jump compared to the 2816 the R9 290X has.
Well just before the weekend Canadian music producer Deadmau5 published a picture on his Instagram account showing off not one, but two NVIDIA Quadro M6000 graphics cards in a system which is used to run his tour visuals. While not the most reliable source for a graphics card leak, take it for what its worth. We are assuming NVIDIA provided Deadmau5 with these cards without any NDA agreement or restrictions for his tour.
It looks like the Battlefield Hardline developers have added a pretty funny Easter egg in the game. It is a drivable couch called “The American Dream” which is accessible in the Dust Bowl map in multiplayer.
The architecture block-diagram for NVIDIA’s GM200 silicon has been leaked to the web. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X will be making full use of the GM200 silicon which it is based off of. The GM200 will feature six Graphics Processing Clusters (GPCs) each will hold 4 SMMs. So that gives the full processor 24 SMMs with a total of 3072 CUDA cores based on the Maxwell architecture.
NVIDIA has launched a large selection of mid-range to entry-level mobile GPUs designed for laptops and other mobile systems. The mid-range parts start with the GTX 960M and GTX 950M while the company also launched entry-level parts such as the GTX 940M, GTX 930M and GTX 920M, which they say all will perform better than Intel’s integrated GPUs.
Looks like Zotac is showing up to the GTX 960 4 GB party with not one but two different graphics cards. The first card is their normal GTX 960 4 GB model (ZT-90308-10M), which does feature a minor overclock of 1177 MHz core with 1240 MHz boost (vs. reference clocks of 1126/1178 MHz).
Inno3D has just announced their iChill GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 Black Series Accelero Hybrid S models. These cards use an integrated air and liquid cooling solution that the company says has a 200% better cooling performance and is 9 times quieter than the stock cooler. It is also the first LCS to have an integrated active fan specifically designed to cool RAM and VR.
It looks like ASUS is joining the 4 GB GTX 960 party with their GTX 960 STRIX 4GB graphics card (STRIX-GTX960-DC2OC-4GD5). The card features 4 GB of video memory and has factory-overclocked speeds of 1291 MHz core and 1317 MHz boost. That is compared to the reference speeds of 1126/1178 MHz.
