GeForce GTX TITAN Black Gets First Listing
NVIDIA's upcoming high-end graphics card, the GeForce GTX TITAN Black, scored its first listing by an online store. Finnish store Multitronic Webshop listed it for €974.90 (including all applicable taxes). The store mentions the pre-tax price at €786.21, which converts to roughly US $1071. These prices confirm the theory that the GTX TITAN Black is being designed to replace the current GTX TITAN from its $999 (pre-tax) price-point. The current GTX TITAN has been cannibalized by the GTX 780 Ti at gaming, and the only two straws it's been clutching onto are 6 GB of memory, and full double-precision floating point GPGPU performance.
The GeForce GTX TITAN Black is a maxing out of the feature-set of the GK110 silicon. It features the full complement of CUDA cores at 2,880 - same as the GTX 780 Ti - but also features full double-precision floating point GPGPU performance, and 6 GB of standard memory amount, which could help in 3DVision Surround, and 4K Ultra HD display setups. Other vital specs of the GPU include 240 TMUs, 48 ROPs, and a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. There's no word on its clock speeds, but we expect it to be either on par with, or slightly higher than those of the GTX 780 Ti.
