[TPU] Dual-GK104 Graphics Card Arrives in May

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Quote:
A little later this month, NVIDIA will launch the GeForce GTX 680, a single-GPU graphics card based on its GK104 performance GPU. It is reported that NVIDIA will design a dual-GPU graphics accelerator based on the same chip, which will then be positioned as an enthusiast product. Called the GeForce GTX 690, this dual-GPU solution will arrive in May.

NVIDIA's approach to the high-end segment, so far, is identical to that of AMD. It hasn't unveiled its enthusiast GK100 GPU, yet, and is instead using performance-segment GK104 for both its single-GPU high-performance graphics card, and as a dual-GPU part in an enthusiast-grade product. This buys NVIDIA plenty of time to release the GK100, unless AMD can offer a new GPU that trumps GK104 in performance, significantly.

uhm, you can pretty much derive it from the current cards...

Just look at HD 7970 CF and HD 7950 CF benches and take the average....

The HD 6990 also performed inbetween 6970 and 6950 CF.

Dual cards are crude and boring IMO. :/ Was hoping for a killer single GPU Kepler, but it looks like we won't be seeing one, at least not for months.

Yeah, I would much rather have single GPUs.

Hopefully when transistor gate stacking takes off, we start to see actual 2x performance increases again, more in accordance with Moore's law. All we're seeing now is density increases and not really 2x better gaming performance from generation to generation when pixel shaders were new.

Perhaps we'll see another radical shift in performance when ROPs are integrated into one shader unit just as vertex and pixel shaders where.

I'm wondering if this dual-GPU GK104-based product is one of the following:

1) 2 single-core, single package GPUs on a dual-GPU card

2) 1 dual-core, single package GPU on a card

3) 1 single-core, single-package GPU which is basically 2 GK104s bolted together at the lithographic level, on a single card.

Problem with Option 3 is that it might out-run whatever high-end single GPU NV have planned in the future, although admittedly it'll be hobbled by its memory interface. Problem with Option 2 is that the package might produce too much heat for a single contact point on the heatsink. Problem with Option 1 is that it's not very innovative.

Will be interesting though. Would at least love to a see a dual-core, single package product, for innovation's sake.

3) 1 single-core, single-package GPU which is basically 2 GK104s bolted together at the lithographic level, on a single card.
Problem with Option 3 is that it might out-run whatever high-end single GPU NV have planned in the future, although admittedly it'll be hobbled by its memory interface. Problem with Option 2 is that the package might produce too much heat for a single contact point on the heatsink. Problem with Option 1 is that it's not very innovative.
Will be interesting though. Would at least love to a see a dual-core, single package product, for innovation's sake.

Option 3 would be quite interesting indeed..
