AMD HD 8000 series Specs, Nvidia GeForce Titan Benchmark

GeForce 700 and Radeon HD 8000 series GPUs release date

During last year many expected that new Radeon HD 8000 Series Sea Islands GPUs will be released within 2012. But till now there is no news revealed about the exact release date of Radeon HD 8000 Series GPU.

However, Radeon HD 8000M Series Solar System GPU, which is said as portable PC version or mobility version is renowned for the OEM market.

Several rumours suggest that Nvidia will launch its new GeForce Titan GPU in a few days. The GeForce Titan is a GPU based on second generation Kepler core, GK110, the same used in parallel accelerators like Tesla K20X and K20.

It is believed that GeForce Titan will be an utter beast in performance and will outperform current GeForce GTX 690.

As there is no proper data about the release date of new generation GPU from Nvidia and AMD, users are left with number of doubts and they remain uncertain. However, SweClockers reported that both Nvidia and AMD GPUs will reach the market during Q4 of 2013 i.e. between October and December of 2013.

But both Nvidia and AMD maintains high secrecy about their new products, and so far it has not revealed any official details about it.

Specifications of AMD Sea Island HD 8xxx series

The Sea Islands series is a family of GPUs developed by AMD. It will be manufactured on a 28 nm process and will feature a revised architecture. AMD is expected to release the GPU within 2013.

  • HD 83xx – 84xx will be based on VLIW5 architecture and will feature OpenGL 4.1, DirectX 11 and OpenCL 1.2
  • HD 87xx-89xx will be based on GCN2 architecture and will feature DirectX 11.1, OpenGL 4.2 and OpenCL 1.2

Specifications of AMD Solar System HD 8xxxM series

NVIDIA GeForce Titan 780 3DMark score revealed

Recently, Wccftech has revealed the 3DMark 11 score of GeForce Titan from PConline, which shows that GeForce Titan is faster than the GTX 690.

But it is not known how far the result is true. GeForce Titan has scored X7107 marks in Extreme mode, while GeForce GTX 690 in the same benchmark has scored X6000 marks. So it is clear that the score of GeForce Titan is twice that of single GTX 680 and approximately 18% higher than the dual-GPU solution GeForce GTX 690.

It is really amazing to think that Titan, a single GPU part, outperforms a dual-GPU part, GTX 690.

GeForce Titan 3DMark11 Performance

The result is hard to believe since both the chips are based on same graphics architecture. However, 3DMark 11 results indicate that new graphics card will perform high and set new standards.

Another leak indicates that PCB of GeForce Titan will be similar to GTX 680, but will carry 6GB of 384-bit memory.

Other reports claim that the upcoming GeForce Titan will also not be called the GeForce GTX 780, nor will it take a GTX 600 series name. It will simply be called the GeForce Titan, likely inspired by the by the Cray Titan supercomputer, which houses nearly 19 thousand Nvidia Tesla K20X cards.

GeForce Titan is expected to be launched sooner and most probably it is anticipated to arrive within this month.
