It looks like NVIDIA is working on another gaming deal to bundle with their GeForce cards. According to Newegg support Konami will be teaming with NVIDIA offering their latest Metal Gear Solid title, The Phantom Pain with GeForce graphics cards.
AMD was the first graphics card company to make use of HBM (high bandwidth memory) with their release of the Fury X and Fury graphics cards. NVIDIA has stated that they are waiting for the second iteration of HBM (HBM2) before they move over to the standard. According to a recent report AMD could be leveraging their deal with SK Hynix to get priority access to HBM2 for their next graphics card series (Arctic Islands).
It has finally been confirmed that NVIDIA will be launching a new graphics card, which will be the GeForce GTX 950, not the GTX 950 Ti. The card will be based off the GM206-250 GPU, which is likely a cut-down version of the GM206-300 processor that is used in the GTX 960.
Now that their high-end models have been very successful it looks like NVIDIA is planning to return to the sub-$150 market with some new entry-level cards. From a recent report by VideoCardz NVIDIA could be preparing not one, but two GM206-based graphics cards. These will inevitability be the GeForce GTX 950 Ti and GeForce GTX 950.
New graphics card have just been revealed in NVIDIA’s latest drivers. The first two card are the Quadro M5000 and M4000. These two cards are likely to launch at SIGGRAPH 2015 which starts on August 9th. Last year NVIDIA launched their Quadro Kx2 parts at the same event last year.
According to a recent report NVIDIA has taped out the silicon for its upcoming Pascal GPU architecture, codenamed GP100. This chip will be the successor to the GM200 silicon that is currently being used in high-end graphics cards like the Titan X. A tape-out is when a company successfully produces a tiny quality of working prototypes for internal testing and further development.
