Although AMD’s forthcoming Radeon R9 290X has yet to launch, NVIDIA has seemingly decided to go ahead and announce their 290X counter product ahead of time. With that in mind, as the final announcement of NVIIDA’s Montreal game showcase NVIDIA has briefly announced their upcoming high-end gaming card, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti.

As something of a bare bones announcement, at this point we don’t have any solid details on the card other than a name and a market position. The GTX 780 Ti is being positioned as NVIDIA’s new high-end gaming card, replacing the existing GTX 780 in that role. Specs, pricing, and the underlying hardware are all unknowns at the moment. Though the reasonable assumption right now is that we’re looking at something to replace the GTX 780 in its $650 slot, and that it will be another GK110 card with higher clocks and/or more SMXes enabled. Furthermore from the very brief glimpse of the card it looks like it will be using the company’s GTX Titan cooler, or a minor variation on it.

NVIDIA tells us that the card will launch in the middle of November, presumably after the 290X launches but before NVIDIA misses out on too much of the holiday shopping season. The NVIDIA TWIMTBP title Assassin’s Creed IV drops on November 19th, with next-generation console releases also planned in that timeframe, so we’ll see if NVIDIA tries to get ahead of those launches. In the meantime we’ll have more details as they become available.

    Well, I bought a 680 last year right after they came out in April. I waited, and waited, and waited for a price drop to get one for SLI and move up to a 1440p monitor. It never happened and then the 770 was released, which is $100 cheaper and I couldn't SLI it with the 680 (that STILL burns my butt). New 680s are still selling for more than the 770. WTF? Guess I'll sit out the 7 series and wait for the 8 series Maxwell next spring before upgrading to a QHD monitor and all new GPUs. Reply

    780 Ti = same specs and price of 780, EXCEPT: 208 TMU's, instead of 192. Stock clock raised from 863 to 902, and boost from 902 to 954. Effectively an extra 500 GFLOPS and 40 GTexels of performance. Thank me later. Reply

    I thought a bit about the GTX780ti card from Nvidia and came to the following conclusion: GTX780ti = GK180. GK180 is as reported to have the same number of cuda cores as the full-featured version of the GK110. However, it doesn't have the same single and double precision performance of a K6000 (quadro card). I think Nvidia has taken GK110 , made some small adjustments in the architecture. So it has lower compute than for example Titan, but is better adapted for the consumer market (similiar to how GK104 is). To summarize : A circuit that is slightly smaller, easier and cheaper to manufacture, and will most likely have a higher base frequencey than GTX780 or Titan. They most likely coupled it with either 3 or 4GB of Vram, (3 for best matching the 384 -bit memory bus, but could also have gone for 4GB, for better 4K resolution support). Furthermore, Jen-Hsun said to the press that it's their fastest graphics card to date, and is pretty sure reviewers will agree when they get to test it on their own.
    Quoting Jen-Hsun :"I think we would dissapoint tremendously if we did not announce a new GPU". A new gpu , if it would have been a GK110 , it's not a new GPU. Ofcourse there is a possibility it just came out wrong. But as I see it , there is no risk this card won't beat the Titan, in graphics performance. Anyways, it's not to long until we really know.

    I hate this marketing bullshit that even Anandtech apparently falls for.

    This monitor isn't actually 240 Hz. Check the specs. The monitor has a maximum input frequency of 122Hz. Its not even capable of using 240Hz from your GPU even if you had one that could do it.The monitor is just doubling existing frames, which actually means nothing because each 2 monitor frames are from the same frame from the GPU, and as LCD panels don't suffer from lack of persistence between scans like CRTs do, you can't/won't even notice a difference as it s 2 frames of the same data.
