NVIDIA to release high-end Maxwell models in Q4 2014

NVIDIA has been doing really great lately due to a simple fact – its Kepler architecture was an undisputed leader that was selling well too. The time for a change came a few months ago when the company revealed its new Maxwell architecture – except that it first came to life in mid-range video solutions, which was a highly unexpected move.

Now the Swedish web site SweClockers claims the first high-end models on the new Maxwell architecture will come out in fall 2014. It is believed that the new video solutions that we will all see will be based on the GM200 core with a 512-bit bus and on the GM204 core with a 256-bit bus. NVIDIA also plans two high-end graphics cards – the GeForce GTX 880 and GTX 870 but there are just a few details when it comes to tech specs. What is known is that they will be based on the old 28 nm tech process. In addition to that there will likely be new models on the GM204 GPU that is known to come with a 256-bit memory bus and support for up to 8 GB of GDDR5 memory.

Expect more news when there’s more information on the upcoming NVIDIA graphics solutions.
