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.
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.
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.
MSI has just announced their 4 GB GeForce GTX 960 card the GTX 960 Gaming 4 GB. This new card is equipped with 4GB of GDDR5 memory and ready to meet the ever increasing demand from next generation games with high definition content.
Many people had hoped or expected AMD to make a graphics card announcement at GDC, it did not happen (NVIDIA stole the show), but something else interesting did. There was a demo of Showdown running on the Oculus Rift Crescent Bay, which was being powered by an unannounced Radeon R9 flagship ultra-enthusiast product.
We first reported on the GeForce GTX Titan X being unveiled at GDC. Since then some people who were at the event got a closer look at it and some great photos the reveal some new details. Now we still do not have official specifications, but we know a lot more now.
It looks like NVIDIA had more than one thing to reveal at GDC this year. Alone with the SHIELD Console announced yesterday, today at the Epic Games GDC event they unveiled the next-generation GeForce GTX Titan X!
