NVIDIA GeForce Titan Listing Reveals 6 GB (512-bit) Memory, 915 MHz Core and 1019 MHz Boost Clocks
The most latest specifications of NVIDIA's GeForce Titan have been leaked by a online retailer based in AU. The retailer has spilled the beans on NVIDIA's GeForce Titan specifications which may be far better than previously reported.

New GeForce Titan Specs Show Kepler Better Than Ever!
The retailer lists the ASUS GeForce Titan which was also listed a few days ago by ProShop although the listing was removed. The new one has not yet been removed and shows that the card would feature a 6 GB GDDR5 memory which would run across a 512-bit interface rather than a 384-bit interface as previously expected. This could show that NVIDIA has made a radical change to its Tesla board since the K20X had a 384-bit interface supporting a 6GB memory. On performance point of view, the faster memory interface would help drive better frame rates while gaming on higher resolutions.
Additionally, the retailer has also mentioned the clock frequencies of the card which are mentioned as 915 MHz for the core and a blistering fast 1019 MHz boost clock. Previously, we thought that since the GeForce Titan was essentially a Tesla K20X built for the consumer market it would had carried over the same specifications of the GPU. That's why we previously reported 14 SMX (2688 Cores), a core clock of around 700 MHz however if NVIDIA has changed the configuration of the GK110 GPU that the GeForce Titan utilizes than the specs could be entirely different. This could also mean that we may see a different core count in the GeForce Titan, either the same or lower than that of the Tesla K20X.
But even if these are real and we are more aimed in believing them than gamers are in for a treat. This could further prove the performance numbers we saw earlier with the GeForce Titan performing on par with the GTX 690. New Benchmarks have also been provided on OBR's website and they show that the card is indeed just on the edge on GeForce GTX 690 which is a dual chip card.
Other details include 2 DVI-I, 1 DVI-D and a single Display port. Cooling would be provided with a single fan heatsink solution which would come with a backplate and power would most probably end between the 235-250W limit. The weird thing about the listing is that the price of the GeForce Titan just keeps on going up with each listing. First it was mentioned to be around $899, proshop listed it for $1299, now the latest listing puts it a an unbelievable $1599 price. We think that the price would just end up around the $1000 mark. Expect launch in the upcoming weeks. Most probably before PS4 launch reveal on 20th February as TechPowerUp believes.
