There's been no shortage of rumors over Nvidia's upcoming GeForce GTX Titan and we can't help but be impressed by the latest reports that the Titan will deliver truly jaw-dropping performance at an equally staggering price. According to an Australian online retailer, as reported by WCCF, the GTX Titan will feature 6 GB of DDR5 memory, a 512 bit memory interface (rather than 384 bit), a base clock of 915 MHz (instead of 732 MHz) and a boost clock of 1019 MHz. It therefore seems that the GK110 chip in the consumer Titan card might actually be quite different from the GK110 chips in Nvidia's professional Tesla K20 and K20X cards. With the increased performance has unfortunately come a dramatically increased price tag. The already incredible retail price of $899 is now is listed at a frankly insane $1599. While it is unrealistic to expect the GTX Titan to arrive with a sub-$1000 price point, the estimate of $1599 seems a bit too far-fetched.
