Unless there is some major overclocking capability to get it up to the 1300MHz we're running our GTX 680's at right now...it's not all that impressive.

Also interestingly enough, from ExpertReview's article:

"It will also allow you to "overclock" your display, running it at a faster sync rate than it officially supports to squeeze out some extra frames per second. As an example, a monitor rated for 60Hz refresh only could run at up to 80Hz, meaning twenty extra frames per second are being displayed."

Bastards stole our idea. :P

And...they just took the article down. Perhaps they released that info too soon? Good thing I saved/re-upped those photo's.

:( Now if they release it at over $1000 we will be pissed!

I would say this is a sign that the GTX780 can only be better .... we hope.
I do like the display overclocking though ... can only make our Cat's smoother one would think?

It is a disappointment that some of the clocks are 16.7% lower than stock 680, but the titan has 75% more cores, 50% wider memory bus, and likely higher efficiency per core clock.

its only getting like 48 fps in crysis 3, thats dissapointing itselft.

That's the only reason I'm holding out a bit of hope...in that, as the same architecture, it may be able to achieve the same OC'd clocks? Similar to how the GTX 690 is clocked lower than the 680, but could be OC'd to the same level. Although heat was an issue with that card due to it being a dual-gpu card. I don't know. But yeah...at the current clocks it's roughly 33% faster than a gtx 680. But...the gtx 680 is clocked 20% higher. So then...if OC results are the same between the cards, bumping it up 20% means that clock for clock with the gtx 680 (at its base clock), it will be 60% faster than the GTX 680.

So Without OC'ing, 3x stock GTX Titans = 4x stock GTX 680's. But assuming same OC capability between cards, 3x OC'd GTX Titans will be 20% faster than 4x OC'd GTX 680's. I guess Price and OC ability will determine if it's a worthwhile card or not. I'm going off of a fairly modest and safe OC of 1250MHz (with Boost active).

According to the official pictures above from Nvidia, yes. And looking at that article, when they wrote for the GPU clock: "xxx MHz (Boost 1'050ish MHz)" it's clear that it's a guesstimate, and not a leaked number. :P How could you not know the boost clock but have those fake benchmarks? :P

I wouldn't be surprised if the gap between base and boost clocks is wider than last generation so that the cards can be "greener" while idling.

Why are they comparing the Titan specs to an i7 3960X lmao.

Agree doesn't look that promising, but it all depends on price, if its not too much more expensive than the 680 then it could be pretty good.

But then again its too late in the generation IMO, for all we know they could release it for $600-900 and in a months time you could get a GPU which is faster for $400-600 lol

I think that "overclocking" the display feature is just bypassing the EDID and using custom timings to squeeze out few extra hz on 60hz monitors. For Catleap monitors most of us are already at this limit so don't expect 130hz+ at 1440p.

Will be interesting to see an actual review with overclocking and tests above 1080p where the extra VRAM and other stuff will really shine.

Perhaps more exciting news is the addition of GPU Boost 2.0, an evolution of the software introduced with Nvidia's 600-series graphics cards. Built into the video driver, GPU Boost 2.0 will let Titan owners overclock and overvolt their cards, with higher limits than with previous cards and optimisations for water-cooling setups.

That has to count for something. And yeah, I'm waiting for other site's benchmarks to show up.

Honestly it's fairly clear. 33% increase over the GTX 680 for games that aren't CPU limited. 50-60% increase over an overclocked gtx 680, if both are clocked at 1250MHz with boost. The card is a brilliant card. The only thing holding it back is the lower clocks. As long as those can be OC'd as well as the 680/690...it's going to be a beautiful thing. So that's what we need to wait for. And I'm not sure if benchmark sites will do OC tests with it.

This is based off of the die size, and the increased vram, and the increased bus allowing it to take advantage of said increases without choking.

Next week I believe.

Partial NDA lift 'today'

Full NDA lift on the 21st.

Hits the shelves after the weekend.

Monitor overclocking, wtf

EDIT: According to Jacob Freeman there is no longer an SLI limit and the pixelclock is raised by a lot.

Looks good, now we wait to see how much it will cost, I hope its not too expensive.

No doubt the shroud and box it comes in will push the price up an extra $200 lol

Honestly, my only interest in this is how the release of the titan indicates the release of the 780...I'm tired of waiting damnit
