Nvidia is reported to release a Pascal-based Titan GPU in August at Gamescom 2016, offering around 50% more performance than Nvidia's GTX 1080 Founders Edition. 

Today VR World has announced that they have been able to get their hands on what will become the Next Nvidia Titan GPU, which will feature Nvidia's GP102 GPU core design. 

At this time it is rumored that GP100, the chip used in Nvidia's Tesla P100 GPU, and Nvidia's GP102 GPU core are essentially the same chip, with one chip name for the NV-link version and another for the PCIe version. 

Las month Nvidia announced the first PCIe-based versions of the Tesla P100, bringing Nvidia's largest Pascal GPU to traditional PCs with HBM2 memory and over 3500 CUDA cores. 

The PCIe based Tesla P100 GPUs are reported to have dual 8-pin or 8-pin + 6-pin PCIe power, giving these cards a max TDP of between 300W and 375W, with both GPUs being significantly longer than the existing GTX 1080.  The PCIe Tesla P100 GPU will have a PCB that is 30cm long, marking a return to ultra long GPU designs.

Below we have a table showing all of the Nvidia GTX GPUs with known specifications, showcasing the comparative specifications of the Tesla P100 series GPUs and the existing Pascal desktop lineup. 

The Tesla GPUs may not look that impressive when compared to the GTX 1080 in terms of compute performance but you must remember that the GP100 based workstation GPUs are running at lower clock speeds and are designed for accuracy over computational throughput. 

With the GP100 all GPUs will have 4 HBM2 memory chips, each of which is 4GB in capacity, though with Pascal Nvidia can disable these chips, allowing 12GB variants to be created. 

At this time we do not know if Nvidia will be releasing a Titan based on the full GP100 GPU core design or on a cut-down version with reduced VRAM capacity and without all SM units enabled.

At this time Nvidia has not confirmed or denied that they are creating a Pascal Titan GPU based on their GP100 or GP102 silicon, so please take these rumors with a grain of salt.

Right now AMD does not have a competitor for the Ultra-high-end market, so Nvidia does not need to release a new Titan GPU in order to remain on top. Hopefully, AMD's Vega will launch sooner rather than later as right now Nvidia do not have much reason to release new high-end GPUs. 

 

You can join the discussion on Nvidia's pascal based GTX Titan GPU on the OC3D Forums.

So we'll most likely get 1080 Ti's around November then which seems about right as it's a good 6 months after the 1080's launch.Quote

Yeah late November or early December is my guessQuote

Now lets watch as it launches with a £1200+ price tag with the 1080 Ti's coming in at the old Titan X price of £900+Quote
