NVIDIA seem to have hit a gold mine with their GM204 GPU which is rocking in the recently released GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards which have been a major hit. The green team is now gearing up for the next flagship model with the development of new GM200 GPU which, among other products, will be featured in the company’s next TITAN series product; the GeForce GTX TITAN II. Some alleged specifications of the GTX TITAN II have leaked giving us an idea what we should expect from NVIDIA’s next flagship.
As mentioned, the GTX TITAN II will be featuring the GM200 GPU from the Maxwell family with die-area of 551 mm². The chip will be based on the 28nm TSMC manufacturing process. The leak suggests that it’ll have 3,072 CUDA cores with 3MB of L3 cache. That’s 50% more cores as compared to the GTX 980. Furthermore, there will be 12 GB of GDDR5 memory spread across a 384-bit wide memory interface. That’s double the memory we saw in first generation TITAN products. The memory will also be equipped with lossless texture compression algorithms enhancing the memory bandwidth. This much amount of memory should make the GTX TITAN II perfect for 4K Ultra HD gaming or better yet 5K gaming.
In terms of clocks, the GTX TITAN II will feature 1100 MHz core clock and 1390 MHz boost clock whereas the memory will be clocked at 6 GHz. This new monster will probably be released at the $999 price point where the original GTX TITAN was launched.
