NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880 in September

According to our sources, NVIDIA will officially announce GeForce GTX 880 somewhere mid-September. NVIDIA is planning a big event for all major press members from around the world. Prepare for boring Maxwell architecture presentation, live streaming, new hardware and smiling Jen-Hsun explaining why you should buy GSYNC monitor and SHIELD tablet.

Of course this live event will only be a paper launch. Cards are expected to hit stores shortly after (late September).

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880 certified

GeForce GTX 880 has recently visited a certification office. Graphics cards are sent for validation in the very end of development process. It usually means that the card is ready, and itís only a matter of weeks before it is available. Please note, it does not mean that AIBs have their cards ready, it only means that the reference board has been validated. PG401 is a reference board for GM204-400, aka GTX 880.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880, 4GB and 256b interface

We also got a word about the specs. It is yet unknown how many CUDA cores will 880 have (thus we are not sharing any numbers this time), but we were told that 256b interface is a fact. GeForce GTX 880 will most likely be released with 4GB GDDR5 memory on board. However, judging for the leaked pictures, we should also expect 8GB models. The only question is, who needs 8GB 256b card?

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880 might be cheap(er)

GeForce GTX 880 might not be the fastest card out there, but it will not hurt your wallet ó $400 Ė $450 is expected MSRP. Of course it is yet too soon to confirm the price, but it is unlikely that GTX 880 will cost $500.

From manufacturers perspective, GeForce GTX 880 is using very similar board design to GTX 770. GeForce GTX 880 is of course 780 successor, but it has more similarities to GTX 770 than GTX 780.
The difference between GTX 880 and GTX 770 boards is cosmetic. Thus, GM204 is basically a GK104 replacement. However, just because itís a mid-range GPU replacement, It does not mean it will be slower than some GK110 cards. We do not know how fast GTX 880 is going to be, but itís safe to assume it will sit above 780 and maybe even 780 Ti.

I don`t believe the $400-450 MSRP price 1 bit. Regardless I expect it to be faster than my cards. Hopefully the memory clock will be 8000 or higher with that 256 bit bus.

Well the reason i ask is because people usually say something along the lines of i want the full GM(insert number here). I never know which chip is the full version and which ones are they cut down versions.

I always let the series mature before buying anyway.

It's ok to buy straight away of course but the cards will get faster and improved over a few months.

I only ever buy 60s or 70s because the life of these cards is getting smaller and smaller all the time it seems.

24" Dell Ulti 1920 x1200 I paid quite a bit of money for this monitor and i still love it.

I'll get UHD one day but for now i can game good enough.

I'll probably snag the 870 if the 880 will be that much.

I think most that currently own Titan, 780/Ti, are better to wait for the 900 series.
Seems they're doing what they did with 600 series, except this time we know what is going on. 800 series is really a "mid range" Maxwell card. High end is going to be the 9-series.

Being cheaper now means, reference boards at $500 starting cash, 880Ti going for $550 or $600 for reference boards at the minimum, custom coolers for $650... where did it get any cheaper, besides maybe the power you save from the cards efficiency?

And that I would most likely invest in even more voltage to add to overclock the sh*t out of those cards

Also, let's all wait for true performance benchmarks... I'm not yet sure the 880 will even be a usefull upgrade.

Why dont we wait until the "xxxx" game sees the daylight and we check how it performs on our current hardware before we let Nvidia rape us again? Iīm pretty confident that I could play GTA V and the newest Batman game just fine with my CPU/GPU combo. I can wait another year for GTX980Ti

Will be interesting to see how this fares. My next card is tho something with 22nm or whatever is next. Cause 290x is fine and dandy

I'll skip it. It would be nice if my GTX 780 had more vram (SC totally maxes it, although it runs great - newest patch has some impressive optimisations) but other than that all is good.

256bit memory bus? Not much use for 4K unfortunately.

I wonder what the Titan 2 will bring to the table, otherwise 9xx series will be the next upgrade.

tempting, if ti gonna do to 680 what 780 did to 680 then it might be a good place.780 after good oc is 55%+ faster than 770 which is impressive.... but still waiting for big daddy maxwell.

Now, I'm not much in to 3Dmark scores and such, but I just googled the Firestrike extreme score thing and found Futuremarks top 100 single gpu char. The 6100 points wasn't even enough to enter that. The #100 was a 780Ti running at just under 1200mhz, which scored 6400ish.
