NVIDIA ends production of several Maxwell GPUs

With Pascal coming in June of this year and Pascal GPUs in full production now, NVIDIA has decided to retire several Maxwell GPUs that comprise the best the Maxwell generation can offer. In other words NVIDIA has stopped the manufacturing process of the GM204 GPU, which powers the GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 video cards as well as the GM200 GPU, which sits inside the high-end GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card.

NVIDIA hopes that the remaining GTX 980, GTX 970 and GTX 980 Ti cards in the market channel will be sold by the time Pascal arrives in June of this year but even if there’s a market shortage no new GTX 980, GTX 970 and GTX 980 Ti cards will be made. The US company plans to release at least three Pascal SKUs in two months time that will then completely replace what the older Maxwell cards above have to offer.

So, if you want a high-end Maxwell card, now is the time to act!
