AMD recently showed industry partners, likely add-in board partners a presentation on the upcoming Radeon R9 390X. The presentation was leaked to the web via photographs taken of the slides and they look quite legitimate. The first slide shows the official specifications of the card. The first thing that sticks out is that the R9 390X WCE (water-cooled edition) will have 4096 stream processors! That is quite a jump compared to the 2816 the R9 290X has.
Well just before the weekend Canadian music producer Deadmau5 published a picture on his Instagram account showing off not one, but two NVIDIA Quadro M6000 graphics cards in a system which is used to run his tour visuals. While not the most reliable source for a graphics card leak, take it for what its worth. We are assuming NVIDIA provided Deadmau5 with these cards without any NDA agreement or restrictions for his tour.
The architecture block-diagram for NVIDIA’s GM200 silicon has been leaked to the web. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X will be making full use of the GM200 silicon which it is based off of. The GM200 will feature six Graphics Processing Clusters (GPCs) each will hold 4 SMMs. So that gives the full processor 24 SMMs with a total of 3072 CUDA cores based on the Maxwell architecture.

Many people had hoped or expected AMD to make a graphics card announcement at GDC, it did not happen (NVIDIA stole the show), but something else interesting did. There was a demo of Showdown running on the Oculus Rift Crescent Bay, which was being powered by an unannounced Radeon R9 flagship ultra-enthusiast product.

It looks like NVIDIA had more than one thing to reveal at GDC this year. Alone with the SHIELD Console announced yesterday, today at the Epic Games GDC event they unveiled the next-generation GeForce GTX Titan X!
The EVGA GeForce GTX 960 delivers incredible performance, power efficiency, and gaming technologies that only NVIDIA Maxwell technology can offer. This is the perfect upgrade, offering 60% faster performance and twice the power efficiency of previous-generation cards.
ASUS’s latest GeForce GTX 960 graphics card has been revealed and it is the mini version we all were hoping for. This card is of course built for compact mini-ITX motherboards. The card more or less looks identical to ASUS’s GTX 670 Mini and GTX 760 Mini graphics cards. The dual-slot card is only 17cm long and features an aluminum heatsink stack that is cooled by a “CoolTech” fan, which is a hybrid between a top-flow and lateral-flow fan.
