    Doesn't seem like anything else fits. The math pans out as 1 SMM = 128 shader cores and is exactly borne out above.

    This does appear to be a Tesla though, given the relatively low memory clock and huge amounts of vRAM. But that boost clock at 1390MHz if true is very tantalizing indeed.

    It can't be anything other than GM200. AMDs 290X is 512bit. GTX 980 is 256bit so a bigger die fit 384bit. 3074/128 means 24 SMM so that fit too.
    There was rumours about GM200 just in time for Xmas so that may come true.

    Due to 12GB its probably a Tesla yes, but consumer GPUs aka Geforce will 100% be made out of the same die. But let's not rule out the possibility that Nvidia is marketing this 12GB card as 8K gaming ready, so it could be a Geforce card lol

    Bah by "doesn't seem like it" I was responding to the "is there anything else that fits" part. Edited post to avoid confusion.

    And so it does seem the rumors that GM200 will be 50% more powerful than Titan Black (which matches a 980) are starting to pan out. Boy is my wallet gonna get rekt this Christmas/New Year. :cry:

    On the other hand, the earlier Jen-Hsun releases GM200 the better off I am. I just keep thinking back to the original Titan, and how it's still holding up remarkably well after 1.8 years. Not to mention the 6GB of vram actually made it more futureproof than the likes of 780 Ti. GM200 looks to be a solid choice to hold out till Pascal and then some.

    lol yes I can totally see nVidia coming out with a 12GB version of Titan 2 and charging ludicrous amounts for it

    Hmmm, Tesla seems like a good guess. That will be probably the first GPU launched with GM200, maybe even soon (there is supercomputing conference in a week, Nvidia did launch previous Teslas there).

    Titan successor is expected to be kept as a trump against AMD launch for sometime in first half of 2015, so unlikely to leak so soon.

    And we have seen those leaked GM200 shipping manifests. So I guess those could have been test Teslas.

    There will undoubtly be a ton of happy nerds jumping up and down over this leaked benchmark tonight lol. Many GTX 780/780Ti owners skipped 970/980 to wait for GM200.

    May not have been such a stupid decision after all. But they better be prepare to bleed for this card since Nvidia is alone on the top right now. $1000 perhaps? :p

    Definitely $1000 if the first GM200 is a Titan, and that's regardless of how 390X performs and if it will Rex the GM200.

    If 390X proves to match 970 in price/perf awesomeness with GM200 level performance, I expect Jen-Hsun to simply rush out a 980 Ti instead of slashing price on the Titan. The Titan has been and will continue to be a halo card, so it's more or less "you pay what we ask coz it's got AWESOME DP64 COMPUTE, oh and e-peen too".

    How are they gonna fit all that on 28nm. Is this gonna be Nvidia's most monolithic die yet. 600+ mm2?

    If its just as dense as GTX 980 it will be 600mm2+ yes :p

    So now those crazy requirements for new games start to make sense :)

    In 2015, anything below GTX 970 will indeed feel sluggish, Ubisoft bets everybody will upgrade.

    AMD will launch 300 series (presumably it'll be good with 20 nm process and HBM). Nvidia will pump-up new Maxwells. GPU world will look different.

    Check what Jen-Hsen Huang said at Nvidia quarterly results call this week (I know he is always excited, but now he seems even more :D ):

    Official requirements and true requirements are two completely different things, do you really think, that we would need a 7970 to play the newest AC when PS4 with a "crappy" downclocked 7870 runs it? or the even crappier Xbox One with a downclocked 7790? No, we won´t. I bet a 860m aka 750 ti runs it at the same level of PS4
