Rumour – Nvidia Planning Dual GK110 “GTX 790” Graphics Card

/ 6 years ago


Nvidia’s GK110 GPU, that is based on the Kepler architecture, has been a very versatile piece. In addition to spawning lots of professional series Nvidia graphics cards from their Quadro line the GK110 GPU also powers the GTX Titan and GTX 780 graphics cards. Now it appears Nvidia might be planning a GTX 790 that uses a pair of GK110 GPUs if are to be believed. Citing anonymous industry sources they say that their is a GTX 790 inbound. It is expected to use a pair of GK110 GPUs though whether these are more similar to the Titan or to the GTX 780 is not known.

Apparently the graphics card will not exceed the $1000 price point and it will see Nvidia reduce the prices of the GTX 780 and GTX Titan so that it is competitive. My guess is that the card will opt for a pair of GTX 780 GK110 GPUs, not GTX Titan ones, simply because two GTX Titan GPUs would mean Nvidia would essentially have to slash the price of the GTX Titan which they wouldn’t want to do. That said it wouldn’t be unfeasible for Nvidia to put a pair of either GK110 GPUs on a single PCB because both consume similar amounts of power with 250W TDPs. That said a pair of 250W TDP GPUs on a single PCB would need a mighty cooling solution.

We still aren’t sure as to how accurate this rumour is, but definitely watch this space as it could get very interesting.

    this means it’s worth me waiting around before i get the graphics cards. I’m looking squarely at the 780’s at the moment.

  2. Matthew Humpherson says:

    That is some serious power draw for one card! Should show some impressive figures though if it turns out to be a real product.

  3. Wayne says:

    Maybe they’ll call it the TiTwin instead of Titan 2. They come in pairs you know 🙂

    and Artifacting / graphic glitch caused by driver is unacceptable
