First information on GeForce GTX 880

The last few months have been really dynamic when it comes to 3D graphics found in PCs. AMD finally unveiled its long awaited Volcanic Islands GPU family in late 2013, which was then followed by NVIDIA launching the Maxwell architecture. AMD responded with the dual-GPU Radeon R9 295 X2 so it is NVIDIA’s turn now. And it has come in the form of the GeForce GTX 880.

Don’t get too excited though – this video card has not been released just yet but we are getting there. In the meantime it seems like a very capable product. According to the first information in regards to this NVIDIA product, the GTX 880 will come with a GM204 GPU on the Maxwell architecture. It will come with the same Maxwell SMM design and will sport full DirectX 12 support but will have more of everything. The card will be built on 20 nm technology and will have 7.9 billion transistors, 3200 CUDA cores, 200 TMUs, 32 ROPs, a 256-bit GDDR5 memory bus, 4 GB of memory, 5.7 TFLOPs of single-precision power, 238 GB/s of memory bandwidth, and memory at 7400 MHz and GPU at 900 MHz (950 MHz Boost). The GTX 880 will need 230 watts of power.

It looks really impressive, doesn’t it? And the GTX 880 will not be the most powerful Maxwell card.
