NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880 and GTX 870 coming this fall

Published: Jun 17th 2014, 16:51 GMT

According to SweClockers, NVIDIA is planning to launch its new desktop GeForce GTX 800 series no sooner than fourth quarter this year.

SweClockers are among the most accurate sources of NVIDIA leaks you can find. Today they report that second generation Maxwell will be released in fourth quarter. It is believed that the launch of GeForce GTX 880 and GeForce GTX 870 is set somewhere between October and November.

First GeForce GTX 800 graphics cards are expected to launch on second generation Maxwell architecture, which is supposedly updated with ARM cores.

From what we’ve learned NVIDIA has completely canceled GM100 chips. Full scale development is now focused on GM200 parts.

Leaked import-export data from Zauba already revealed that NVIDIA is preparing GM204 processor, which is most likely a successor to GK104. It is said that GM204 would equipped with 8GB GDDR5 memory and 256-bit interface. It could be a mobile variant though. We already covered this story more than a month ago, and we are not really sure, why was it such hot topic this week.

Last, but not least we should mention that GM20x GPUs are still using 28nm fabrication process.
It is highly unlikely we are going to see any 18/20nm graphics processor this year.
