    Oh my god this is so exciting. :eek:

    Quick recap: The first Kepler cards was unknown, until leaks happened. Leaks that show codenames etc. And it built from there, first codenames, then GPU-z, then full details.
    It have happened again. Thanks to laptopvideo2go, just recently posted, we now know that a completely new line of graphic cards are coming. The names was mentioned in a driver and laptopvideo2go modded it and made an inf.

    For context:
    GTX 675M: N13-GS1-A1 (Source here)
    GTX 680M: N14E-Q1-A2 (Source here)
    GTX 780M: N14E-GTX-A2 (Source here)
    GTX 880M: N15E-GX-A2 (Source here)

    New codenames listed:
    They are all N16E codenames.
    Meaning completely new cards of a new series. HELLO MAXWELL
    :D:):hi2::thumbsup:



    Update #1:
    There are three Maxwell desktop graphic cards coming. GTX 880, GTX 870 and GTX 860. They will be based on the GM204 chip.
    Revealed by the reliable japanese techsite Hermitage Akihabara
    http://www.gdm.or.jp/voices/2014/0726/79559

    Update #2:
    GTX 870 benchmarks was posted on Coolaler.com. GPU-Z screenshot from the GPU was also posted. Apparantly it will have 1664 cores and 256bit bus.
    GTX 870 scores about the same as a GTX 780.
    http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/possible-geforce-gtx-870-specs-and-benchmark-leaked.html

    Update #3:
    Sources known to Cloudfire said notebooks with GTX 900M series will ship in October. GT72 with GTX 980M and Asus G760 will arrive that month. Earlier it was thought that the upcoming GM204 GPUs would be called GTX880MX, GTX 870MX and such.
    Nvidia have moved on to GTX 900M.
    There are debates going on why Nvidia would release desktop GPUs in 800 series and mobile GPUs in 900 series. Maybe the mobile 900 cards was 20nm and desktop 800 cards 28nm?!
    http://wccftech.com/nvidia-maxwell-gtx-980m-coming-october/

    Update #4:
    Nvidia have decided to rename the desktop cards to 900 series to not confuse people about mobile being 900M series while leaving desktop at 800 series.
    Nvidia will also have a streaming event around 9-10th September where we will finally see Maxwell GM204 cards presented.
    http://videocardz.com/51426/nvidia-to-skip-geforce-800-series-geforce-gtx-980-and-gtx-970-mid-september

    Update #5:
    Nvidia annouced they will have a Game24 event on September 18th where they will celebrate gaming. In the source code of the website however, "Maxwelliscoming" was hidden, clearly showing that Nvidia is finally prepared to present the GM204 Maxwell cards at that event.
    The Game24 events will happen on different locations across the globe on September 18th, and Nvidia will have live streaming of the event that we can tune in to.

    Update #6:
    GS60 with GTX 970M was listed at laptopno1.com
    http://laptopno1.com/chi-tiet-san-pham/1899/msi-gs60-2qe-ghost-pro-gold-edition-core-i7-4710hq-16gb-superraid-256gb-ssd-vga-gtx-970m.htm

    GS70 2QE with GTX 970M listed at some list from MSI Russia
    http://amigo.msi.com/msi_specification.aspx?SearchText=GS70

    It is also very plausible that GT72 with GTX 980M will be called "GT72 2QE"

    Update #7:
    Videocardz managed to spot GTX 980, GTX 970M, GTX 980M and GTX 970M Firestrike benchmarks posted on 3DMark.com.
    GTX 980M scored an impressive 57% over GTX 880M and its little brother, GTX 970M still edging GTX 880M by over 20%. GTX 980M was also very close to the GTX 780 in Firestrike like previously speculated. Really impressive that a 100W mobile Maxwell graphic card can match a 230W Kepler card.

    TechPowerUp posted specifications.

    Yay, another maxwell thread. Duh.

    Those codenames say absolutely nothing about the architecture though, I bet there's another Fermi part among them. :D

    This merits a new thread and this is Maxwell for sure. Or are you suggesting a rebrand of a rebrand? GTX 780M > GTX 880M > GTX xxxM?

    No, no, no. You get me all wrong. Not a rebrand of a rebrand. This is Nvidia we're talking about, so we have that already, e.g. 610m -> 705m -> 800m or also 625m -> 720m -> 810m, just to mention two examples.
    No, I was more talking about rebranding a rebranded rebrand, if you can follow :p

    900m series Fermi part coming! Yay.



    Just for the record, I'm not saying there's no new part among those, but believing that the majority of the parts you listed are something we haven't seen yet would be foolish to say the list. I mean seeing how closely you follow every possible Nvidia rumor you find online you should be familiar with Nvidias track record... :p
