The New Year is here, but where are my New GPUs from NVIDIA? Well, it looks like they - yes, they, plural - could be very close. VideoCardz.com is reporting that we should expect two new high-end GPUs from NVIDIA: the GeForce GTX TITAN Black Edition, and the dual-GPU GeForce GTX 790.

Starting with the GeForce GTX TITAN Black Edition, which should be the same GPU found on the GTX 780 Ti, but it would feature higher double precision computing, in other words: more CUDA cores. We should see this GPU arrive with 6GB of VRAM on board, twice as much as the GTX 780 Ti features, something that is quite important to NVIDIA these days with 4K here.

We should expect the GTX TITAN Black Edition to feature 2880 CUDA cores, 240 TMUs, and 48 ROPS. The price on the GPU will be around $999, and we should hear more information on it shortly.

The second GPU, is the GeForce GTX 790. The GTX 790 will see two GK110 cores slapped onto the same PCB, but they won't be full GK110 cores unfortunately. We should see two 2496 CUDA cores, for a total of 4992 CUDA cores on the GTX 790. One interesting thing to note on the leaked, or estimated specifications on the GTX 790 is that it will not use the 384-bit bus that the 780 Ti and GTX TITAN Black Edition will reportedly use, instead, it will be knocked down to 320-bit.

This will mean we'll see 10GB of total VRAM on the GTX 790, two lots of 5GB. NVIDIA is aiming at 300W on the GTX 790, so it'll be interesting to see the performance on it with 2 x 150W TDP GPUs for a total of 300W. We should expect NVIDIA to launch this new GPU sometime in March.
