After recent articles about upcoming NVIDIA GPUs as well as TSMC's problems with 20nm tech, what do you guys think the next 12-18 months will look like?
Reports would indicate the following:
Oct/Nov for 880 GTX (28nm)
Titan II early 2015 28nm? Link
20nm 980 in 2H'15?
Anther thing... If the Titan II really is ~600mm2
then it's probably 28nm, but what will NVIDIA do once 20nm gets up to speed?
Taking a page from history, the 480 -> 580 was not only a eagerly awaited die-shrink, but the 580 generation launched a mere eight
months after the 480's. So along that line if a die-shrunk 880 becomes the 980 GTX, then I guess the die-shrunk Titan II would turn into a 980 Ti? Basically what happened with the 480 / 580 and the Titan / 780 Ti all over again... seems logical enough if the Titan II really will be launched at 28nm as the purported 600mm2
size seems to indicate. But would NVIDIA be so quick to shrink its chips within another 8-month window, given it will be sitting on the 20nm node for some time?
