Just recently, it was reported that NVIDIA will be having a big event sometime in September, introducing the company’s latest products. One of those products is reported to be the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880 graphics card based on the next generation Maxwell architecture. Check out the rest of the story below.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880 Coming in September
The next generation NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880 is reported to be unveiled or launched in mid-September and the actual availability of the product will be towards the end of September or perhaps October in some regions.
The price of the GTX 880 is reported to be under $500 USD, probably around $400 to $450, or $499. But it is reported to be cheaper than the GTX 780 when it was first released (hopefully). If this report is true, then that’s good news. Of course it is also expected that the GTX 880 will be faster than its predecessors and perhaps probably faster than the GTX 780 Ti as well. We just don’t know if the recently leaked 3D Mark FireStrike Extreme benchmark score is really from a GTX 880.
It is also reported that the GTX 880 will have a 4GB memory running on a 256bit memory interface. An 8GB variant will also be available as well. The GTX 880 will be based on the new Maxwell architecture using GM204 chip. The Maxwell chips are said to be faster and more power efficient compared to their predecessors.
Personally, I’m very excited about the upcoming GTX 800 series. I’m not going to get any GTX 700 anytime soon, and will wait for the 800 series to come out.
