NVIDIA started off the GPU Technology conference today by announcing the GeForce GTX TITAN Z. This card packs two GK110 GPU’s on to a single card giving it a total of 5760 CUDA cores and 12GB of on board memory. NVIDIA is currently saying this card is capable of 8 TeraFLOPS and is designed for 5K gaming!
About a month ago we talked about AMD working on a dual GPU graphics solution based on their “Hawaii” architecture. Proof of this was in AMD’s driver package, but this card may never make it to market. On the other side NVIDIA is said to be working on a new dual GPU solution of their own, the GeForce GTX 790.
Today NVIDIA is officially announcing the GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphics card and its market availability. The card is based on the same GK110 core as the GTX Titan. It will feature a full compliment of 2880 CUDA cores, 240 TMUs, 48 ROPs and 3 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 384-bit wide interface.
NVIDIA has already released the GeForce GTX Titan based on the GK110 graphics processing unit. According to a rumor they are working on a second GK110-based card that will most likely be made for the professional sector rather than consumers like the GeForce GTX Titan was. NVIDIA’s Quadro line of professional graphics cards is topped out by the Quadro 6000, which is based on the Fermi architecture. To complete the line with the Kepler architecture, NVIDIA is said to soon be releasing a Quadro K6000 graphics card.
