NVIDIA plans new dual-GPU video card
Last year NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX Titan Z – an ultra high-end graphics card that unleashed the full power of the company’s Kepler architecture. The card cost USD 2999, which made it too expensive for most gamers around the world but it was a tech wonder nevertheless.
Now you will have another chance at getting a monster video card from NVIDIA – a persistent online rumor claims that the US company will soon launch a new board with two GM200 GPUs on it. This is the same GPU that powers NVIDIA’s high-end GeForce GTX 980 Ti and GTX Titan X video cards so the newcomer will offer insane performance for sure.
There are no tech details as of now but the development of the card is in its final stage. Apparently last week NVIDIA had a secret meeting with several members of the press where they were briefed on the new card. There also are a few sample video cards that are in circulation now so reviews will be ready by the time the new video card gets launched.
The appearance of the yet unnamed dual-GPU Maxwell video card means the end of this generation is near. In year 2016 NVIDIA plans to launch the new Pascal architecture that will use HBM2 memory, which means we will see even higher performance. This is really exciting, isn’t it?
