Spy photos of GTX780, GTX770 appear online

Nvidia’s next-generation of graphics cards may only be a month away, according to new rumors and some recent spy shots.

The Geforce 700 series was slated to not be released this year, but rumors kept on circulating around the internet of a mid-2013 release, but with current technology. A forum user on Chiphell has now surfaced with some shots of the GTX770 and the GTX780, both using the same cooler design found on the GTX Titan.

Our Mandarin is almost non-existent (Hurrah for Google translate), but there are no details on the actual cards or what’s powering them. The cooler designs are both identical to the GTX Titan, employing a single blower fan with a heatsink covering all the memory chips and capacitors, with a metal shroud and plexiglass over the heatsink itself.

Fudzilla, however, seems to think that the GTX770 is merely a stock GTX680 at a lower price. In turn, they quote anonymous sources claiming further that the GTX760 Ti will be a slightly cut down GTX680, the GTX750 Ti will be a rebranded GTX670 and the GTX660 Ti will fill in for the GTX750. If that seems a bit absurd, they also claim that the GTX780 will be a cut-down version of the GTX Titan on a 256-bit memory bus.

No details were mentioned about the Titan itself changing, so it will likely remain at its price point as it’s not really a Geforce product, but a repurposed Tesla K5000. There were no details regarding a dual-GPU Geforce 700-series card, so it’s now a waiting game to see what happens next.

Fudzilla also said their sources mentioned a May 16 reveal for the “new” Geforce family.

    Can’t wait to get my hands on a GTX780, been saving for ages to buy the best PC a reasonable (See what I did there :P) person can buy.

    Might upgrade to a 780 from my 7970, depending on the performance difference. The 7970’s a powerful beast, but I know I’ll need more for GTA V.

    GTX780 is slower than your card ….

    “seems to think that the GTX770 is merely a stock GTX680 at a lower price”

    Not sure how that translates to the 780 being slower than a 7970.

    Also, “seems to think”. That’s a rumor. I’m not going to make assumptions based on fact-less opinions.

    I highly doubt the 780 will be slower, seeing as though the 680 is on par, and taking Nvidia’s history of GPU series branding into account.

    Every time a new series releases, these strange rumors circulate, and then are disproved. I’ll just wait and see.

  • Upgrading to a 780 from your current beast isn’t reasonable. Unless you got money to throw away of course. I would wait for the next next gen and maybe save up for a 890 or 9990 when it comes out?

  • oomjan

    I will wait for 880 before I upgrade my 570GTX SLI setup

  • Bl1zz4rd

    That’s quite long, considering the 7970 isn’t going to be able run games at max that are releasing later this year already.

  • What resolution are you playing at? That card would have me sorted for the next 2 years at 1920×1200

  • For once I actually think Fudzilla is on the money (and they’re usually never on the money). Nvidia and AMD’s next projects deal with the 4K resolution and a rebrand would be best for them. This yearly update business is killing the silicon market because it only works if you have enough coverage in as many markets as possible to cover your losses moving to the next process node. Haswell is still 22nm. Both Geforce and Radeon will be stuck at 28nm for now until TSMC progresses to 20nm or GloFo somehow leapfrogs them. 14nm is Intel’s baby.

    Moore’s Law is dead in about ten years as well. Once we hit 10nm, it’s going to be very difficult progressing forward.

    I pretty much see the market stagnating for the next year again. Sea Islands will be design improvements, Kepler will be re-used for more profit and Titan LE will no doubt be the GTX780. Only in the mobile segment is any real movement going to be seen and that’s all down to AMD and Intel.
