Yup. Bus doesn't mean anything by itself though. Bandwidth = bus * memory speed. A 1024-bit bus running at 500MHz has the same bandwidth as a 64-bit bus at 8GHz. Nvidia has higher memory clockspeeds than AMD in general, so they aren't nearly as limited by the smaller bus in terms of bandwidth.

Maxwell may be different but this seems bizarre.

, but not of all the GPUs. Remember, the Titan Z is a dual GPU. Also remember that Maxwell is, core for core and clock for clock, something like 30-40% faster than Kepler. ROPs? Those are usually reliant on the backend, but I'm not entirely sure how they're determined. I think bus width has some to do with them though, and that implies that this should have 32 ROPs instead, or should have a 320-bit bus. In any case, I am definitely skeptical about this, but this is Nvidia. The 700 series has had like five different flagships. Maybe we'll see a 384-bit 880Ti with 3600 shaders and 60 ROPs just three weeks after the 880's release!
So at this point, I don't even think I'm waiting for Maxwell. I'll probably just grab a 770 if Nvidia keeps up their bullcrap. I am not happy about how GK110 has turned out, and if this is real, then this is just the 600 series all over again: mid-range crap for the first run, and then the real stuff the second time. However, I will give them the benefit of doubt and wait since it is so early in the year.
