The specs and a retail listing for an Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan 'Black Edition' have been listed on a Finnish online retail website, reports VideoCardz. This 'Black Edition' video card is said to employ the full GK110 GPU, as used in Nvidia's GTX780 Ti, but with more memory (6GB) and full double-precision floating point GPGPU performance.

The Finnish retailer, Multitronic Webshop, lists the "Asus GTXTITAN 6GB PCI-E Black" at €978,90 including applicable taxes. Before VAT that price is €789,44 - equivalent to US$1,078 today. So in the US the Black edition of the Titan could very probably be listed at $999, replacing the current GTX Titan at that price point. VideoCardz says that the new Titan will be launched "very soon... two or three weeks". Apparently Nvidia and partners are waiting for the stock depletion of the original Titan card.

Another three graphics cards to be launched by Nvidia shortly are also named and outlined by VideoCardz sources, it says the complete launch roster will be as follows:

  • GeForce GTX TITAN BLACK Edition 6GB, GK110, 2880 CUDAs
  • GeForce GTX 790 6GB, 2xGK110, 2x 2496/2880 CUDAs
  • GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB, GK106 (GM106), 960 CUDAs
  • GeForce GTX 750 1GB, GK107 (GM107), 384 CUDAs

The second card listed in the bullet points above, the GeForce GTX 790 6GB with dual GK110 GPUs, has also been listed on a web retailer, this time in Russia. It is priced at approximately US$1,400. The specs including the fewer CUDA cores enabled are thought to have been sliced to keep the card's TDP below 300 watts.

When (or if) these graphics cards do emerge rest assured they will be thoroughly tested in the HEXUS labs and results published here as soon as Nvidia allows it.

$1400... good grief. Mind you, given that the most logical setup it would replace is a SLI/quad-SLI 780(Ti) rig, I guess it's not comparatively ridiculous in price. And enough people have multi-780 rigs to make this worthwhile.

Crazy world sometimes, but now with multi-screen gaming and 4K we're going to be able to push these cards way beyond their limits without too much difficulty.
since Nvidia launched the 600 series, now they are slowing down because there is no actual threat by AMD, still their R9 series fall behind 780 Ti, and now with the these cards, AMD still needs to catch up with them next year while Nvidia will release a new series at the same time which will put AMD behind again, so its cat and mouse.

but im happy to see this going on as our graphics cards will live longer than expected.
Yeah, I have better things to spend €400 on than 3GB of GDDR5. Also, calling a GTX 780 Ti a Titan is just going to confuse even more clueless saps.
I wouldn't say that there is no threat from AMD. Look at Nvidia's response when the 290 and 290x came out, suddenly there was a price cut and the 780 Ti was released.

I'm still awaiting for the full release of custom coolers on the 290x as they are looking very promising.

Well AMD's best is significantly cheaper than NVIDIA's, they threaten NVIDIA at most price points.
