NVIDIA partners halt GeForce GTX 970, 980, 980Ti production and GPU Pascal codenames surface
In anticipation of upcoming Pascal products in the coming month or two, at least that's what hwbattle is reporting this morning. As we get closer to the actual launch more and more tiny little details surface, combined bringing a bigger picture.
Can you smell it in the air ? :sniff::sniff: - yeah that's the smell of 16nm GPUs coming closer and closer.
It looks like that Nvidia will indeed name the upcoming GTX series the GeForce GXT 1070, 1080 and as it seems now perhaps even a 1080 Ti. The GPU naming now surfaced as well. Logic however would assume a Ti release later in the year opposed to everything being released at once in the summer.
Equivalent to GTX 980 Ti will use a GP 104-400 GPU
Equivalent to GTX 980 will use a GP 104-200 GPU
Equivalent to GTX 970 will use a GP 104-150 GPU
As you can see that still leaves open GP100 (big pascal) for later in the year with likely a Titan based naming, ...
