Asus GeForce GTX Titan 6GB Listed Online in Denmark!
In this case, Denmark's online retailer Proshop, has listed this card giving us a tantalizing glimpse of what it's like. It's the Asus GeForce GTX Titan 6GB, with the catchily named model number 90YV03Y0-U0NA00. All they tell you about it specs-wise is that it has 6GB GDDR5, supports PCI Express 3.0, has 2 x DVI ports, a HDMI port and a DisplayPort, err, port. Max resolution is a non-standard 2560 x 1650 pixels. 1650? It's normally 1600 and I've never seen a monitor with 1650 vertical pixels, so this is likely to be a typo.
Note that there's no sign of "780" in the product name. Will numbers be reserved for cards lower down the line, or has NVIDIA moved away from model numbers entirely now? It's not clear at this point.
And then of course, there's the price and this is where us enthusiasts sigh and perhaps weep, as we resign ourselves to either not having one, or spending big since this baby costs 7,276.00 kr.
So, how much is that in real money? Well, if you're in America it translates to $1300 and in Europe to 900 Euro, which is around £900 in UK money, give or take a bit. This steep price is hardly surprising, since NVIDIA has successfully doubled the price of their top end graphics cards as I explained in not too glowing terms, here. Also, as I predicted in that article, this card is priced around the same as the current flagship GTX 690. It will be interesting to see how much the price of the GTX 690 drops if at all, when the Titan is released.
Sadly, there's no picture as yet so the graphics card porn / pinup will have to wait a little while longer, but not too long since it's expected to launch on February 18.
Note that the shop listing showing these scant details has now unsurprisingly been pulled, giving a page not found error, instead.
