GM204 Graphics Cards Already Being Tested By Nvidia
Peter Donnell / 9 years ago
Nvidia is pretty good at keeping secrets, but it’s impossible to close all the holes and stop every leak from escaping. We have little idea about what GM204 actually is, but going on the current history of Nvidia hardware naming, we can safely guess that it’s a set of next-gen graphics hardware that will follow GK104, the current hardware in the newer GeFoce 760, or even the GK110 which is in cards like the Titan.
The product codes were spotted on a shipping declaration from April which was sent by Nvidia to its test labs in India, before being published on the Chinese forum over at Chiphell. According to the packaging the GM204 graphics unit features 8GB of GDDR5 memory which does suggest its a high-end gaming class graphics card, but we really no idea if this is a standalone GPU, mobile GPU, or something else altogether.
The rumour mill is working hard on this one, as it’s rumoured that GM204 could be the successor to the current GPU range, bringing around 10% performance improvements over the current generation. It’s not rumour that next-gen hardware is in the works at Nvidia, that much is a certainty, but for now we’ll have to wait a little longer to see if this leaked document is real or not.
Thank you Chiphell for providing us with this information.
