The First High-End graphics card from NVIDIA which completely impress every one was GTX Titan, it has dominated the market for some time with its superior performance. It was based on the Kepler 28nm process node. Now it seems like NVIDIA is preparing to launch the second version of it as till now we have seen lots of indications of GTX Titan II. The latest news is coming from the benchmark database of SiSoftware in which a Graphics card has appeared which feature Maxwell GM200 (GM200 is also known as Big Maxwell). After seeing the technical specifications it seems like it would be NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan II. The computing performance would be almost 50% higher than current-Gen NVIDIA High-End GTX 980.
From the specification aspects the listed Graphics card is equipped with 24 blocks SMM. Also would feature 128 ALUs per CU. This would make the GM200 exactly 50 percent faster in processing than the GM204-GPU which offer 2048 shaders. The card mentioned is giving 3072 shaders, most probably 192 Texture units and 96 ROPs. The core operates at a frequency of 1100MHz in standard mode and turbo boost upto 1390MHz and in addition, we should expect the unlocked capacity for double-precision calculations. In terms of VRAM it would have memory of 12 GB of GDDR5with 384-bit interface.

If you are curious about it releasing date, it would happen in the Q3 of 2015 as TSMC expects to begin volume production of 16nm FinFET in late Q2, early Q3 of 2015. We don’t know when the Titan II will debut on the market, but one thing is happing in the market that Nvidia is making a strong impact on the market of Graphics card.
