Default Nvidia Maxwell!

I did some searching to see what I could find out about Nvidia's 800 Series and from what iv read Team Green will be adding a Arm cpu to there line up.

wouldnt push that push power crews alot higher

smaller transistors means less power I guess, so it would be able to spare some power for the ARM cpu

I sold my 7950, hated that experience. Now I'm using my GTX 460 for now which isn't very good in bf4 to say the least but I'm holding out for its release. You hear of an actual release date let me know.

I keep digging till I get solid dates that would make sense. Soon as they drop I have roughly $2200 set aside after rig built. Love tax season.

People have to remember how these things work.

The next generation high end cards WON'T consume less power. The optimal TDP for those cards is and always has been ~250W. What the smaller manufacturing process will achieve is better performance WITHIN THE SAME TDP LIMITS.

Basically, these are moving goal posts. As additional thermal / power overhead is achieved by more efficient processes, chip designers have more space to play with.

Yeah as iv read they can basically do more with same power requirements.

Iv dug through some interesting rumors and if any bit of them are true we will see 2 versions of Maxwell. One will be a consumer card wich will have a custom quad core 64bit SoC.

The other will apparently have a Octa core SoC and have other Tesla Accelerated features for Hpc. Either way the rumored specs sound very nice.

From what iv read the SoC will do most heavy work offloading the cpu Work.

If the rumors are true then I'll grab one or two when the cards come out. I am trying to avoid buying GTX 780 Ti because my EVGA GTX 780 Hydro Copper @1350 is very sufficient for gaming on my Dell U2713HM 2560x1440.

I think I decided to go with a EVGA 780, if it comes out in 3 months I'll do the step up program but some people are also thinking these things won't appear until 3rd quarter so who knows.

Hopefully the mid range of maxwell will be stabilized by next fall and anything that might happen with mantle on the amd front will be out there. My gtx 460 will need an update by then.

In my horrid pre built I managed to get 430gt in there and replaced stock ram for 16gigs of Mushkin Black line just to tide it over till New rig built then this Acer prebuilt will be repurposed as a dedicated server.
