GTX 800/Maxwell release date?
So far we know that GTX 800/Maxwell will be released in 2014 but can you tell us will be released in Q1 Q2 Q3 or Q4 of the year? Also will it work on PCI 2.0 motherboard? I saw on gtx 780 it says that it supports pci 3.0 that got me worried, i am looking forward to GTX 800 series but my motherboard is a ASUS P5 P67 LE(PCI 2.0 motherboard) So when i buy a new gpu will it work on my motherboard or i must buy a new one?

Yes.. PCI-e is fully backwards compatible with PCI-e 2.0 (and 1.1 for that matter) But (in my opinion) why upgrade to the latest in graphics tech. only to be 3-4 generations behind (by the time of release) with your cpu/motherboard? This usually leads to disappointment and complaints when people do not realize how each component in their pc communicates with each other then blame it on the graphics card. Just my .02$ ;)

Pci-e is generally backward compatible so there shouldn't be a problem mixing the versions. obviously for best performance matching them will be optimum.

Ok thanks for the answer! I will buy a GTX 800 just to make sure that i will play games with better graphics and framerate than next gen consoles. Also will maxwell be small than current GTX 700 cards? I mean will it take less space in case? Or will they be more big?

No one can answer your specific questions. NVIDIA, like many other companies, does not pre-publish such information prior to release, and Maxwell's release is far down the road. Anything you read now is purely guesswork with no real foundation...

I'm guessing maxwell will be released the same date the 7xx series was but next year

[b]Nvidia's Maxwell GPU on its way, but no GTX 800s yet[/b] Dave James at 17:18 on 06 February 2014 Nvidia is launching a couple of brand new graphics cards in the entry-level arena. Normally that wouldn’t be a particularly exciting event, but this is going to be our first taste of Nvidia’s new Maxwell GPU architecture. It'll be the first time Nvidia have launched new graphics architecture without housing it in a top-end graphics card. You could argue that’s because they simply don’t need to with the likes of the GTX 780 Ti delivering the goods against the hot and hungry Radeon 290X. But there’s another possibility - the proper Maxwell GPUs aren’t ready to be manufactured. Maxwell was meant to appear on the new 20nm production process, a drop in scale from Nvidia’s current 28nm node. But the silicon manufacturer, TSMC, reportedly isn’t yet ready to start production. Until they are it’s unlikely we’ll see proper GTX 800 series cards backed up by Maxwell tech. These entry-level GeForce cards still look interesting though, especially as they’re going to be purely bus-powered - needing no extra power aside from what they get from the motherboard’s PCIe slot. Some pictures of the new GPUs have tipped up over at VideoCardz. The GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti look like direct replacements for the GTX 650 and GTX 650 Ti, but the fact Nvidia has stuck with a lowly 128-bit memory interface is a bit of a shame. If the GTX 750 Ti was rocking a 192-bit bus, like the impressive GTX 650 Ti Boost, I’d be very excited indeed. As it is, I’m just intrigued. Okay, maybe a bit excited. We’ll know more very soon as all the rumours point to a February release. [url]http://www.pcgamer.com/2014/02/06/nvidias-maxwell-gpu-on-its-way-but-no-gtx-800s-yet/[/url]
