After thinking a lot about AMD Radeon R9 290X and GeForce GTX TITAN, I have come to a conclusion that NVIDIA has been very clever with GTX TITAN and its GK110 GPU. The company released a slightly underpowered GK110 GPU which was enough to become the world’s fastest single GPU and remained patient for their rival’s flagship chip. NVIDIA monitored the Hawaii XT GPU and then announced the GeForce GTX 780 Ti to take back the crown once again with a fully packed GK110 chip. This conclusion has been drawn up with the yet another GeForce GTX 780 Ti specifications leak revealing 2880 unified shaders (the previous one was most probably fake).
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Specifications:
The latest GPU-Z shot that leaked on several Chinese websites reveal GeForce GTX 780 Ti specifications that everyone expected after the official announcement. According to the screenshot, GeForce GTX 780 Ti will be equipped with the full-on GK110 GPU featuring 2880 shaders, 240 TMUs and 48 ROPs. It will come with 3 GB GDDR5 memory which is half the size of what is available in GTX TITAN but the GTX 780 Ti will retain the 384-bit memory interface. The 336.5 GB/s memory bandwidth is faster then that of AMD Radeon R9 290X thanks to the clock speed of 7 GHz.
In terms of clock speeds, GeForce GTX 780 Ti’s core will be running at 902 MHz with boost of up to 1033 MHz. As stated above, the memory is clocked at 1752 MHz (7 GHz effective). The GPU-Z also shows that the card is running with GeForce drivers version 333.96 which are yet to be released. The latest release WHQL release is version 331.65. Regardless of the fact that this might be totally fake, the leaked GeForce GTX 780 Ti specifications do look promising and enough to take back the crown as the world’s fastest GPU.
