The guys over at Coolaler have allegedly been able to get their hands on an upcoming Maxwell GM204 graphics card, from what they are saying it is the GeForce GTX 870. The GPU-Z screenshot that they provide cannot property identify the GPU, but it does read the cards name as “D17U-20″ featuring a GPU name “13C2″. The Device ID and BIOS fields are redacted so we cannot say for sure if this is genuine or not.
According to VideoCardz, NVIDIA will officially announce the GeForce GTX 880 at some point in mid-September. NVIDIA will be planning a big event for all major press around the world. Expect to see a Maxwell presentation, new hardware and of course Jen-Hsun telling you to buy that new SHIELD Tablet.
According to multiple reports, NVIDIA is looking to unveil its GM204 graphics processor in the next two months. Cloudfire a user on the NotebookReview forums has gathered some information from notebook manufacturers regarding their future products. He has confirmed that NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980M Maxwell flagship will launch in October.
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.
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.
NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 750 Ti is not really much to talk about especially when it comes to gaming. Although it is something that the cryptomining crowd should definitely take a look at for its price-performance ratio and low power draw.
A photo of a GeForce GTX 870M has surfaced, along with a GPU-Z screenshot. What is interesting about this is that the codename on the chip does not match anything that we have known before and the chip is not in the Techpowerup database. So what is this chip we are looking at?
