    I imagine they will remove it entirely. Pascal will end up on a mobile Tegra unit at some point and they won't have DP units there wasting die space.

    So that might translate to a 250-280W TDP "desktop" board?

    Maybe even less, 220w, and a much much smaller die if they remove the dp entirely, problem is if they change the number of SP units in each smm can we even call it pascal

    If it was possible to do fp64 and fp32 in tandem the board would probably explode

    If they remove it completely they will need a separate production line for a new chip that will essentially be GP104.

    Yeah that's for sure, I'm referring to a potential gp101 that has more fp32 per SM, highly unlikely cause that would entail a lot of work; the end result wouldn't even technically be a pascal gpu

    After hearing more and more bad rumors going around the Pascal cards in the Polaris topic in the front page section makes me think the waiting game is a bad idea and I should go the 980 ti route and skip Pascal. Either way it is going to be a pretty big boost for me. It might be possible that a 1080 might be equal to a stock 980 ti. Besides I still have a couple of months worth of saving up my money for a new card.

    You should not be listening to unfounded rumors being spread by the AMD fanboy camp..

    Nobody has any clue what pascal will really be like.

    Nice find, interesting thread.

    We do have the specs of the Tesla card which should correspond more or less to the "big" Pascal (Titan, Ti etc). The mainstream model will be more or less 2/3rds of that and probably will use GDDR5x instead of HBM2, since I don't believe there is even enough production to cover NVIDIA's mid-high end segment.

    A 1080 will probably have ridiculous turbo clocks but I would hold my horses until the inevitable "Ti" model that will be probably out at the same time as Vega.

    You're just not gonna get your dream card this time around. Why would they give you every single spec for the lowest price point? Then this time next year they do a refresh. I have a 1440p Acer XB270hu so l can't wait to see whatever nVidia do. Gsync is really that good with 144hz

    Just realized. 1080 Ti just doesn't sound right. Feels wrong to say.

    If the specs hold true and a 'Titan' model would come with 4000-4600 shaders compared to any '1080' with 2300-2500, it could pay off to buy one of them instead of the 1080Ti (if it's truely based on the full GP104).

    I'm interested in what they'll call the Titan. There's no convention to it, we've had Titan, Titan black, Titan Z, Titan X.

    Any guesses? Titan Y?

    They should just name it after the architecture. Titan P, if there is a refresh called it a Titan P2. With Volta call it Titan V, V2, etc.

    Their naming scheme is getting really crappy lately. If they do end up calling the next series of card the GTX1080 it will be insanely dumb.
