    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880 - 2nd Gen Maxwell

    Guys, lets make this one clean.

    Behold, the new NVIDIA graphics card has just been pictured.
    We might be looking at the first pictures of the second generation Maxwell engineering sample.

    A Chinese website called GamerSky has just posted what seems to be a GeForce GTX 880 engineering sample.
    Of course, we don?t know that for sure, but GamerSky crew titled their post exactly with such codename.
    We also have the picture of the GPU itself, and judging from the markings (1421A1),
    it was manufactured somewhere in the 21st week of this year.

    Holy hell, that VRAM. Betting power connectors will change before launch though.

    It seems to be H5GQ4H24MFR-R2C - 4Gbit - 7.0Gbps chip - according to Hynix Datasheets from here: http://www.electronicsdatasheets.com...5gq4h24mfrr2c/


    16 of them meaning that things has 8GB VRAM,

    Might be real deal......

    I think if it was the medium-size 20nm chip then it wouldn't be so big.

    I think that's a big-medium 28nm maxwell which will be 15-30% faster than gtx 780. that would leave the big 20nm chip to launch like titan did, expensive and way before the consumer chip.

    and if leaky board makers have chips right now, then the launch will be as soon as viable in the market. I assume that means september. unless someone knows something about new video cards being profitable in the summer

    I'll wait for 20nm now after splurging on a much more needed monitor upgrade.

    Confirmed - we're looking at 204 above.

    I'm just hoping I can maintain the patience to wait for GM210 :P SLi 680s getting a little long in the tooth, and for surround resolutions that 4GB/8GB VRAM sounds mighty tasty (I strongly suspect 8GB is just for the ES part and retail will launch with 4).

    Curious to see the pricing. It better be cheaper than 780 Ti...

    I'll be happy with GM204 I have a feeling... just hope it's soon, I may have sold my 780 a little too far in advance... .

    The next round of fast cards from nVidia will be 20nm.

    Btw... did anyone else notice this?

    Well, Maxwell has been long rumored to have integrated arm cores. Seems like Maxwell is a lot more than that though -- it's an SOC! I bet you can run standalone using the extra power connection, or perhaps via a PCI-e interface that only supplies power.

    Andrew, 20nm speculation or known somehow? I think it'll be 20 but no inside info there.

    How good is KingPin 780Ti is at overclocking?

    Edit: Rumor on the street, Nvidia might showcase a demo with GTX880 on PDXLAN. Like they did with Kepler, running an app in the background.

    there is arm core inside "Big" Maxwell, BUT NOT IN THIS CHIP on pictures, this is Gaming GPU, with no arm core.

    Ok, then explain what the purpose of the SSDs are.

    it is testing board with lot of testing features ... not final product pcb

    ps. little hint: Find what is NVLINK a which interface it is using

    This is big Maxwell w/o ARM?

    Neat....

    Is this big minus arm cores? And are we looking at 20 or 28 ? Those are my big two questions.

    This is small Maxwell, GM204.

    @PedantOne:
    Will the ARM core(s) in Big Maxwell have any use for gaming? PhysX, SLI, compute...? Or will it just be for HPC and not relevant for gamers at all?

    That's basically what I was asking in a roundabout way . Also curious of process. By "big without arm" I meant is it basically the same for gamers .

    This is Big M w/o cores, that is the question.

    I have to imagine it won't have too much use for gaming. Think of it this way, the arm cores are weaker than any decent x86 cpu. Thus if a coder needing additional cpu power, wouldn't they just take it from the original source? The only advantage I can think of would be direct access to the gpu memory bus, which has tons of bandwidth. But who knows, Nvidia themselves could write drivers that appropriately make use of them.

    I personally am very excited to see what it can do for speeding up simulations. Computer Aided Engineering has even taken over the automotive industry, just imagine how much nicer our stuff will become if the companies can do 3x as many simulations in the same Design 'N Review period.
