Nvidia GTX 880 REVEALED in Pics, Release Incoming?
A few days ago, we were reporting that the Nvidia GTX 880 and 870 release date were pushed to Q4 2014 and now we have new information.
Gamers all over the world are looking forward to the release of the Nvidia GTX 880, and it seems that the release date is getting closer, as we already have the first alleged images coming from a Chinese website called GamerSky.
According to the publication (in Chinese), the card sports an early A1 revision GM204 Maxwell GPU, being labeled 1421A1, which could hint to the date when it was made – May 19th, 2014 or the 21st week of the year.
You can see for yourself in the images from below that the video card has 8GB of GDDR5 memory on board as there are sixteen SKHynix H5GQ4H24MFR 512MB GDDR5 memory chips on both sides of the card. Impressive stuff.
They seem to be R2C speed rated, meaning they will be able to run 7000MHz in stock form. This means that the GeForce GTX 880 4GB base models could come with an optional 8GB card.
The prototype Nvidia GTX 880 card comes with three power connectors, which means its power consumption should be under 375 Watts. Also, at the top edge of the card there are the usual NVIDIA SLI interconnections.
However, despite the fact that we’re seeing pictures with the Nvidia GTX 880, it seems that the release date is not yet certain. When it launches, it is expected to carry a price of around $500. Of course, it will get cheaper after the release.
