NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880 and GTX 870 Released Date and Details Revealed

Are you planning to upgrade to a high-end GTX 700 series graphics card? You might want to hold that first because the next generation NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880 and GTX 870 could be released this coming Q4 2014, probably in October or November, according to sweclockers. The upcoming GeForce GTX 880 and GTX 870 are said to feature the next generation NVIDIA Maxwell GM204 processor based on a 28nm process, and will support DirectX 12 technology. There have also been reports claiming that the new GTX 800 series graphics card will be more power efficient, faster (of course it should be faster) and cheaper compared to its predecessors. Check out more details below.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880 and GTX 870 Released Date

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880 and GTX 870 To Be Released by Q4 2014

Basically the intro paragraph was the gist of sweclockers’ report regarding the release date of the GeForce GTX 880 and GTX 870. Many of us expected that the new Maxwell GM204 will be based on the 20nm process, but it seems that NVIDIA will go with the 28nm instead because the 20nm won’t be available until 2015. This could probably mean that the earlier 800 series GPUs will be based on a 28nm fab process and the later 800 series GPUs will be based on the newer 20nm process.

Other than that, the upcoming GeForce GTX 880 Maxwell GPU is said to feature 3200 CUDA Cores with a boost clock of 950MHz and 5.7 TFLOPs GPU compute power. It will also feature 4GB of GDDR5 memory clock at 7.4GHz running on a 256-bit memory interface (instead of 512bit according to other rumors). Unfortunately, there is no information yet regarding the GTX 870’s specifications.

In addition to the NVIDIA Maxwell GM204, it is also reported that NVIDIA is also planning to release a GM210 chip for the ultra-high end segment. This could probably be the next generation GTX GPUs under the Ti (Titanium) or TITAN branding. Who knows, NVIDIA might probably revive the “Ultra” branding as well.

If this report is true, this should be very exciting specially for PC gamers, since we will have a new hardware to play with this coming Holiday season.
