At NVIDIA’s Game24 event the company has launched its next-generation GeForce GTX 900 series. This series is currently made up of the flagship GeForce GTX 980 and followed by the GeForce GTX 970. Both cards are based on NVIDIA’s GM204 “Maxwell” silicon.
Well it looks like someone let the cat out of the bag early! NVIDIA’s complete press deck on the GeForce GTX 980, GeForce GTX 970 and Maxwell GPU architecture has been leaked! This post includes official NVIDIA press slides, performance charts and photos!
As we get closer to the launch of NVIDIA’s 900 series cards more and more information is leaking out. Courtesy of our friends over at VideoCardz we have the final specifications on the GeForce GTX 980 and quite a lot of information on the GM204 processor. Let’s dive in!
NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 900 series graphics cards will be launching this week and we wanted to give you a preview of what to expect from NVIDIA’s latest graphics cards. Both the GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce GTX 970 will be based off NVIDIA’s GM204 silicon. We have already seen the Maxwell architecture on NVIDIA’s entry-level GM107 based cards, the GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GeForce GTX 750. Now it is time for the performance segment cards, which will include the GTX 980 and GTX 970 to start with the GTX 960 to come later down the line. We have compiled all of the information we know about both cards in this article. We will keep this article updated as more information comes available.
The first pictures of the reference-designed NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics card have been revealed. The GeForce GTX 980 will be the flagship graphics card of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 900 series followed by the GeForce GTX 970 and GeForce GTX 960.
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.
