Valve has been working on their official Steam Machine, but the project has been delayed. We should expect to see the Steam Machine sometime in 2015. In the meantime it looks like NVIDIA is working on a direct competitor to the Steam Machine.
Given that this chip will be based on the existing 28 nm process this is going to be a big GPU, over 600 mm²! Since this GPU will be based on the Maxwell architecture thermal loads should not be that bad, but given its going to be a big chip we will just have to see. We could see the GM200-based GeForce GTX Titan II launch is the first half of 2015.
NVIDIA’s GM204 Maxwell graphics cards are expected to launch very soon. From what we know we will see the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 800 Series cards by the end of the year for sure. The cards coming out this year will be based on the 28 nm process.
NVIDIA has been working on their flagship graphics card for the GeForce 800 series, this will effectively replace the 700 series cards. These new cards will feature NVIDIA’s Maxwell graphics processing unit. There have been rumors that NVIDIA will launch this card in Q4 of this year. Chinese website GamerSky has leaked photos of the first engineering sample of the card.
KFA2 has just launched an updated version of their factory overclocked GeForce GTX 780 HOF (hall of fame) graphics card. This new card is the GeForce GTX 780 HOF OC+ and is based on the same board design as the original.
According to a report by SweClockers NVIDIA is planning to release its next high performance single-GPU graphics cards no later than Q4 of 2014. These cards will incloude the GeForce GTX 880 and the GeForce GTX 870 and they are said to be launching in the October / November time frame.
According to a report by DigiTimes graphics card vendors are bracing for a brutal second quarter. They expect graphics card sales to drop by 30 to 40 percent! Vendors reasoning for this forecast is overwhelming unsold inventories of cards lower down the supply chain.
At NVIDIA’s Gamer’s Day held at Computex 2014 there was one very interesting piece of hardware being shown off. NVIDIA has stuffed at GeForce GTX 760 GPU inside of Gigabyte’s incredibly small BRIX mini PC!
NVIDIA has just announced its entry-level or cheapest card offering in the 700 series, the GeForce GT 740. This card is a simple rebrand of the GT 640 so that means it is not based on the Maxwell micro-architecture, but rather uses the Kepler-based GK107 chip.
After multiple delays NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan Z is finally here. It has been officially released today by NVIDIA. The Titan Z is a dual-GPU graphics card that is based on the GK110 architecture. It features 5760 CUDA cores, 480 TMUs and 96 ROPs. There is a total of 12 GB of GDDR5 memory running across a 384-bit interface per GPU.
