Our first look at Nvidia’s new flagship card featuring a Maxwell 2.0 GPU.
We have taken a look to one of a gamers’ dream graphics card based on new Nvidia Maxwell chip. And it's unbelievable, but we cannot find any drawbacks in MSI GeForce GTX 970 Gaming. And now we will try to convince you of its advantages.
Nvidia has updated its professional product line-up, promising more onboard memory and up to 40% more performance at the same prices and within the same TDP as before. We are going to test the new graphics cards in comparison with AMD’s FirePro W9100 and W8100.
Maxwell is the new GPU architecture from NVIDIA which will arrive in a lot of graphics cards this year. Let's talk about the first model based on this architecture.

The GeForce 800 Series is a family of graphics processing units being developed by Nvidia, for use in desktop and laptop PCs. It will serve as the introduction for the Maxwell architecture (GM-codenamed chips), the successor to Kepler.
Nvidia expects three major things from the Maxwell architecture: improved graphics capabilities, simplified programming as well as better energy-efficiency compared to the GeForce 700 Series and GeForce 600 Series.
The first GeForce consumer-class products based on the Maxwell architecture are expected in early 2014. Later on, Nvidia will release the Maxwell-powered Tesla accelerator cards as well as Quadro professional graphics cards based on this architecture. Eventually, Maxwell architecture will be used for mobile application processors that belong to the Parker family of Tegra SoCs.
