Nintendo is working on a new next-generation console that will succeed the Wii U. Nintendo is reacting to lower sales and its competitive edge compared to current consoles like the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Many reports suggest that Nintendo might change-course in the direction of its console business much like it did with the original Wii. The company could come up with a system that is focused on serious gaming, but still retain that original “fun” quality. So the console could be more NES-like than Wii-like.

A user on the Chiphell forums has posted some very interesting benchmarks. Now before we continue we would say to take this information with a grain of salt as we cannot verify it and we have seen fakes before in the past. The Chiphell user posted benchmarks of a supposed AMD Bermuda (R9 390X), AMD Fiji (R9 380X), a NVIDIA GM200 (Titan 2) and a NVIDIA GM200 cut-down version (GTX 980 Ti?). Of course these would all have to be engineering samples of the cards.

In our previous post we talked about NVIDIA working with TSMC on the 16 nm FinFET process. We wondered why AMD is was not the released list of companies who are working with TSMC. Well it looks like AMD will manufacture their GPUs at Global Foundries.
It looks like TSMC is ready to move to volume production on their 16 nm FinFET process. Based on a recent report we know that NVIDIA is joining them. Does that mean that NVIDIA is skipping the 20 nm fab process completely?
