NVIDIA GeForce 700 Series Launching in May

It looks like we may be seeing NVIDIA’s GeForce 700 Series cards a lot sooner than expected. According to Bright Side of News, NVIDIA will be launching their GeForce 700 Series as soon as May 2013. The company is planning to launch three new cards to start the 700 series off. These cards will feature a refined version of the 28nm Kepler architecture. The cards include the GeForce GTX 780, GeForce GTX 770 and GeForce GTX 760 Ti.

GeForce GTX 780 5GB
We have been hearing a lot about a GeForce GTX Titan LE for the past few weeks. This would be a slimmed down version of the original Titan card. While most of the leaks were correct the card is not going to be called the GeForce GTX Titan LE, rather it will be the GeForce GTX 780 5GB. This will be the consumer version of the Tesla K20C, which has 2496 CUDA cores and 5GB of GDDR5 memory. Performance should be around 30% faster than a GeForce GTX 680. Expect to see this card launch in the last days of May right before everyone leaves for Computex. Of course no word yet on pricing, but expect the card to be around $499 and $599.

GeForce GTX 770
The second card is the GeForce GTX 770. This card would be nothing more than a higher clocked GTX 680 as it will be based off a GK104-425 die. You would see about a 20-25% performance boost over a GeForce GTX 670. The card will still use a 256-but interface with 4GB of GDDR5 memory. The launch of this card would be ahead of the GTX 780, so a mid-March time frame.

GeForce GTX 760 Ti
This will be the final card in the new product stack. This card will be based off the GK104-225 die, the same one as the GTX 670. The card will be packed with 2GB of GDDR5 memory. Performance will be about 20-23% better than a standard GTX 660 Ti card. This card is expected to launch at Computex.

There is a possibility that NVIDIA could launch all three cards together at Computex, but we will have to see.
