A slide from a presentation by NVIDIA CUDA Fellow Manuel Ujaldón reveals that the company's upcoming Pascal architecture promises up to 12 teraflops of single-precision and up to 4 teraflops of double-precision computing power.

Both figures are roughly 3 times higher than the specifications of the GK110 Kepler-based Tesla K20X card. The newer GM200-based Tesla M40 delivers about half the single-precision performance, but scores pretty bad in terms of double-precision.
