We've been hearing rumblings of a new card coming from NVIDIA that will be based upon the GK110 GPU. The GK110 is the GPU that powers some of NVIDIA's Tesla workstation GPUs. The rumors say that NVIDIA is planning to release the GPU to counter whatever AMD may have to offer with the HD8000 series.
A leaked posting for the new graphics card puts the price tag at $1,599. The GPU is listed online at Austin Computers, which is based in Australia. As such, the price might not be the same in the United States, but it should give us a starting point. Furthermore, some of the specifications were listed in the title bar.
The card listed is an ASUS that features a PCI-E 3.0 interface, 6GB of RAM, and a 512-bit RAM interface. Previous rumors had placed the RAM at 6GB on a 384-bit memory bus. Clocks are said to be 915MHz with a boost to 1019. There isn't a picture of the product, so take this with some reservations. This posting could be wrong.
