Rumor: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 GPU will not be based on GK110

Rumor: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 GPU will not be based on GK110

Earlier this month the web circulating rumors suggesting that the future Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 GPU would be based on the GK110 nuckeo , the epitome of the unreleased second generation Kepler architecture , and a few days ago Nvidia revealed itself which will be available in configurations with between 2496-2880 shader processors in Tesla cGPUs K20 Series.

OBR Hardware informs us, these rumors are false, because the future will be based on a new core GK110 completely different; core on which promise to provide more details later, but there’s no need to speculate too much to deduce that This is the core GK112 released yet .

So far little is known about GK112, but it would be very difficult to deduce that following the nomenclature of gk112 would be based on the same variant of Kepler-focused used in GK110 GPGPU computing, so it is likely that GPCs possesses four (576 shader processors each shaders in total 2304), each consisting of three SMX, which in turn have 192 shader processors each.

We still have very little data that allow us to deduce the number of texture units (TMUs) and rendering (ROPs), but one could assume that would use a memory bus of 384 bits and perhaps this new core API has support DirectX 11.1 (Kepler supports first-generation DirectX 11). GK112 cropped versions of other products could shape future Nvidia GeForce and 760 Ti. We will keep you informed.
