Okay we need to be a bit careful about the actual name, but new shipping manifests show that Nvidia has been moving around a graphics card based on a "GM200 A1 graphics processor" as that is what the manifest states. That's Maxwell high-end bro. It is kinda silly to see what is inspected for specs these days, but hey .. props to whoever leaked it.
With the graphics card market at an all-time low new release schedule, any news is news. A1 indicates the GPU being the first batch or engineering sample GPU. As expected, the GM200, much like the like the GM204 will be a Maxwell 28nm GPU as the TSMC 20nm node still is giving issues. This means that these processors will be HUGE in size. perhaps even over 620 mm²
Nvidia GM200-GPU transport list manifest
Earlier rumors already have indicated that GM200 would feature more than 4000 Shader processors albeit that is gossip of the highest level. Expected though is that the memory bus will be widened up towards 512-bit giving this product a heck of a lot of bandwidth. The GM200-based "GeForce GTX TITAN II" could launch in the first half of 2015, but everything in this post is could have and would have.
Now, if we combine this new shipping manifest info with what we spotted earlier last week, that's right guru's, the leaded PCB photoswould be the GM200 GeForce GTX 880 / Titan II (or whatever is to be named) ?
This could be Nvidia pending flagship graphics card - don't ya hate the blurry Mosaic ?
