These cards will also enjoy 16 nm production process although at first they will be produced with older 28 nm technology. Thus the GTX 880 with a 28 nm GM204A GPU will be presented in October, while the 16 nm GM204B chip will come out in Q1 2015. The new cards based on GM204 are expected to retail for USD 250-500.
