In addition, it was reported that the NVDIA GeForce Titan would have a texture fill rate of 288 GT per second compared to GeForce GTX 690’s 234 GT per second. The card will also boast a peak computing power of 4.5 TFlops, since it carries over the powerful GK110 GPU. The said GPU has been used inside the Tesla K20X workstation card.

Aside from that, the GeForce Titan will feature 2688 cores (14 SMX Units), 224 Texture Mapping Units, and 48 Raster Operations Units. As for the GPU’s memory, it would have a 6 GB GDDR5 interface running along a 384-bit interface. Assuming that it will run at a 6008 MHz effective clock, then the card will be able to produce a bandwidth of 288 GB per second.

However, it is possible that the actual core clocks would be lower, as it was revealed in an OpenCL database:

With regards to NVIDIA GeForce Titan’s design scheme, the cooler would be built using high-quality aluminum alloy metal. The GPU core itself would be strapped underneath a vapor chamber cooler. Power consumption, on the other hand, would be around 235-250 W limit with a single 8-pin and 6-pin connector.

Availability

With the launch date set on February 18, there were also reports that a paper launch would occur with retail availability between February 24 and February 26. NVIDIA’s GeForce Titan would also be available in limited quantities, as well as to certain manufacturers such as EVGA, ASUS, and MSI. Meanwhile, there were speculations that its pricing would be around the $1000 mark, although that remains to be seen.
