Is This the First Picture of GeForce GTX 880?

Chinese tech publication MyDrivers posted what it claims to be a graphics board running NVIDIA's next-generation GM204 graphics chip, which is designed to succeed the GK104, as the company's next workhorse GPU, covering a wide range of price-points. The pre-production graphics board usually has all its components placed (some redundant), to test out the best combination of them on production boards. Right away you see the purported GM204 chip, which looks bigger than the GK104, flanked by eight memory chips on three sides (reinforcing the 256-bit wide memory interface theory). The GM204 silicon is based on NVIDIA's "Maxwell" architecture, and is rumored to feature 3,200 CUDA cores, and about 4 GB of memory across a 256-bit wide memory interface. It is widely rumored to be built on the current 28 nm silicon fab process. NVIDIA could launch the first products running this chip before X'mas.

Yeah I saw that, I think I might wait for GM210, not interested in another mid-range GM204 chip.

How the hell do you know he is one of the commentators??? I don't see the damn username. :confused:
And? My point is he/that site can be trolling sometimes, mostly spreading false rumors. I stopped taking them so seriously a long time ago.

Imo no wonder its blocked @ guru3d :p

Now, here’s the biggest shocker coming from SemiAccurate article. According to their sources, NVIDIA will skip 20nm node and move straight to 16nm.
What precisely is the shocker here? TSMC's CLN20SOC isn't suitable for high power GPU's. Myself, as well as others, have attempted to debunk that supposed fairy tale for some time.
TSMC's own roadmap stated the same thing before they softened the PR when they cancelled the CLN20G (General Purpose) process


If Charlie D is using his usual modus operandi, he'll claim that Nvidia will launch four cards, then when they launch 2 or 3 claim that they couldn't launch the rest because of bad yields. I'm actually quite surprised that he hasn't announced a fictitious GM 2xx part as clickbait, then later, deliver a six-part exposé on why Nvidia failed to produce it

So you're telling me if Nvidia launched a GM204 part, that outperformed the 780Ti, for half the price, you would have no interest in it? Who cares as long as the performance is there?

Dude swings and misses so often I'm surprised the Red Sox haven't offered him a contract.

No I wouldn't, I already own GK110.


Only future GM210 should be worth it. Hopefully ~ 10tflops :D
