The rumor mill has just spun out a new set of information regarding Nvidia's upcoming flagship enthusiast card: the new GeForce GTX Titan. Based on a Pascal GP100 or GP102 GPU, this powerful graphics card will allegedly be revealed at Gamescom in Germany between August 17th and 21st.
This news comes to us from VR World, who have reportedly seen a "GTX Titan P" in person. They claim the high-end card will be released after equivalent Quadro products hit the market, with both the Titan and Quadro cards using a very similar heatsink design (aside from color scheme and branding).
From what VR World has heard, Nvidia wants the GTX Titan P to boast 50 percent better performance than the current GTX 1080 Founders Edition. The GTX 1080 is already a hugely powerful card, so this Titan P would be absolutely monstrous, and will likely carry an equally huge price tag similar to past Titan cards.
Early versions of the Titan P allegedly came with either 8+6 or 8+8 pin PCIe power connectors, which would allow delivery of up to 300 or 375 watts of power respectively. This is quite a bit more power than the GTX 1080, which has a TDP of 180 watts and a single 8-pin connector. Memory systems were also either 12 or 16 GB of HBM2, apparently.
If this rumor is true, it won't be long before we see an even more powerful Pascal-based graphics card hit the market. It may not end up being affordable, but it could ideal for single-card 4K gaming.
