Nvidia Pascal Titan Rumored to be coming as early as April

 

Nvidia's upcoming Pascal GPUs are now rumored to be coming to market as early as April, starting off with a Pascal Titan-esque GPU with lower end models coming later. 

The high end models are expected to using the GP100 GPU core, which is built on TSMC 16nm process and use HBM memory, though right now capacities are yet to be confirmed, but current rumors suggest a maximum VRAM capacity of 32GB. 

At around June of this year Nvidia are rumored to be launching their GP104 core GPUs, which are rumored by Techfrag to be using GDDR5X memory and not HBM and make up the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070, if Nvidia continue to use their current naming scheme. 

The GTX 1080 is expected to have performance that is similar to the GTX 980Ti or Titan X, but come in with a lower TDP and thermals, though right now this is merely guesswork given Nvidia's recent trends when moving from one generation to another.

One other thing that is rumored is that Nvidia's Volta will be coming in 2017, which is pretty much what is expected these days, with a new generation of GPUs typically coming every year.

If Nvidia do indeed launch in April they will be launching at around the same time as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive VR headsets, giving the early adopters of VR a nice new flagship GPU to sink their teeth into. This will also be before AMD releases their next generation of GPUs as AMD has stated that their launch will "mid 2016".

It makes sense for them to do it this way, far more than it did when they released the Titan back in early 2013 before the 770, 780 and 780ti.

I imagine this new GM100 Titan will have 16GB of HBM, the 1080ti will have 8GB of HBM, and the 1080 and 1070 will have 6GB or 8GB of GDDR5X.Quote

Hard to imagine this. TSMC hasnt begin volume production of its 2nd gen 16nm nodes which is better suited for high performance computing(GPUs). That means Nvidia will probably be using the first gen 16nm node. Wonder what implications that will have for a Titan.Quote

volume doesn't matter for a product like that. Just launch it at $3000. Everybody thinks nvidia is awesome while the card is out of stock, then release a 600 ti card thats faster later when they can make more.Quote

Volume and yields do matter. If you have bad yields, you get bad volume and the chips that come out are only avg. Other way around could just have Hugh volume but if yields are low it won't wow anyone with the OC'ing potential or power consumption

Edit: Forgot to mention, it will only have 16GB HBM2 at max. 32GB(using the 8Gb chips at 8hi) won't start production until late this year.. so that rumor is debunkedQuote
