Apparently, some hardware sites got their hands on an NVIDIA driver listing with several new product codes. They claim thirteen N16(P/E) chips are listed (although I count twelve (??)). While I do not have much knowledge of NVIDIA's internal product structure, the GeForce GTX 880M, based on Kepler, is apparently listed as N15E.

Things have changed a lot since this presentation.

These new parts will allegedly be based on the second-generation Maxwell architecture. Also, the source believes that these new GPUs will in the GeForce GTX 800-series, possibly with the MX suffix that was last seen in October 2012 with the GeForce GTX 680MX. Of course, being a long-time PC gamer, the MX suffix does not exactly ring positive with my memory. It used to be the Ti-line that you wanted, and the MX-line that you could afford. But who am I kidding? None of that is relevant these days. Get off my lawn.

Maxwell - Late, missing original features, not 20nm, and over-hyped.

Wake me when Nvidia has something interesting.

Much rather have a gsync laptop, so that the stuff i can run - runs cleanly and artifact free...

I see NO point in ANY new gpu`s before this is mainstream.

The rebranding on the mobile site is ridiculous. What will they call the 800M series when they have already released the 880M in March 2014? I guess who cares right?
