Nvidia’s Maxwell (GTX 800) Confirmed For Q1 Of 2014

/ 5 years ago


We have already heard that we may be seeing an Nvidia GTX 790 dual GK110 GPU in the near future and now VideoCardz reports that we will also be seeing Nvidia’s Maxwell GPUs come as early as Q1 of 2014. VideoCardz cites manufacturer sources which state that the GTX 800 series will arrive at some stage in February/March.

The report states that it is unlikely that we will see 20nm GPUs with Maxwell as TSMC will not be ready with mass production in time. Samples of 20nm GPUs could be available to Nvidia by the end of this year but if 20nm GPUs launch in February or March 2014 we should expect an effective paper launch and serious supply shortages because mass production isn’t expected to take place until June 2014. Since the GTX 700 series was just a rebranded GTX 600 series, the GTX 800 series could be a revised version of the 28nm Kepler architecture in a “tick-tock” style but again the details are sketchy.

Either way the message is clear, expect something new from Nvidia’s desktop graphics card segment in early 2014. We expect many more details to emerge between now and then.

    guess they got some inside on 9970 performance and it does bea titan. So they needed 2 speed things up LOL

  2. AndyM says:

    I hope that they have the common sense to include h.265 HEVC decoding as part of the PureVideo HW acceleration on the 800 series.

    • Paulo Carmo says:

      GTX 750 and 750 Ti already have h.265 decoder. Why the gtx 800 series would not have too? Doesn’t make any sence…

      • Look when the comment was written you douche, obviously he didn’t know the GTX 750 (Ti) would have a H.265 decoder because it wasn’t even known about or released yet….seriously some people need to get some common sense

        • omgme says:

          jesus,he didn’t see the date,big deal.the one who should get a common sense is you.

          • Thanks for the useful tip. I’ll go and get some common sense when you learn how to use grammar and punctuation.

            Look at when the comment was written, you troll. Obviously, he didn’t know the GTX 750 (Ti) would have a H.265 decoder because it wasn’t even known about or released yet… Seriously, some people need to get some common sense

          Fuck of!

    It is already March and only the Mobile series GTX 800M has been released. According to the videocardz.com the Desktop GTX 800 series are expected from May 2014 (or after). Nvidia does not seem to be on hurry

    • Siana Gearz says:

      They are in a hurry, they are always in a hurry. They’re stuck though, they’re targeting a new process (20nm), and best guess is that TMSC can’t get it working at production quality just yet!

    It’s now June, I think we missed the mark on this one.
