Rumour: NVIDIA GK114 GPU will be 15% more powerful than the current GK104

Rumour: NVIDIA GK114 GPU will be 15% more powerful than the current GK104

has recently completed her family of first-generation GPUs “GK10x” (GeForce 600 Series) with the launch of its GeForce GTX 650 Ti , but before long rumored about its successor, the family of GPUs Nvidia Kepler second Generation “GK11x” (GeForce 700 Series).

Rumors suggest that the best example of this new family of GTX GPUs will be the 780, which may be based on the GPU GK100 or GK112 in new , but new information from SemiAccurate suggests that will be based on a new kernel called -GX.

At the moment it is unknown whether this new and unknown GK114-rumored GX GK114 will be identical to, or if it will be a new nomenclature by Nvidia, but by focusing on what really matters, this new GPU promises a 15% higher yield the current GK104, although it is not clear how this increase achieved in performance.

Since Nvidia is tradition that their second generation GPUs based on the same architecture have nearly identical specifications as those of his predecessors, we can assume that the new GK114/GK114-GK like the current GK104 will have a total of 1536 shader processors , and thanks to the most experience in the manufacturing process to 28nm, can provide much higher operating frequencies, making the top 15% performance.

Anyway, out of their not have more details, but it is possible that new GeForce 700 series GPUs have API compatibility with DirectX 11.1 (GeForce 600 Series are compatible with DirectX 11) and some improvements in decoding and encoding units hardware video.

  1. I advise NVIDIA to shorten the viability of 20nm manufacturing process, and direct jump to 14nm (H2 2013) manufacturing process from Global Foundries, instead of TSMC’s 20nm, leaves AMD far behind the smoke.
