Perhaps, Nvidia Corp.’s next-generation Maxwell architecture can wait? According to a new media report, Nvidia is working on two new graphics solutions based on the existing GK110 architecture known as Kepler.

 

Both GeForce GTX graphics cards will be aimed at the ultra-high-end market segment, where graphics cards can cost $1000 or more. VideoCardz.com web-site reports that Nvidia is developing two new graphics solutions for performance enthusiasts without limitations of budget:

Given the fact that GK110 GPUs are expensive to make even now using 28nm process technology, do not expect Nvidia’s GeForce GTX Titan “Black Edition” and GeForce GTX 790 to drop pricing shortly after the launch.

In fact, in case the information about the launch itself is correct, then it looks like high-end Nvidia Maxwell-based graphics solutions will likely be postponed.It just does not make sense for Nvidia to rival its own products.

Nvidia did not comment on the news-story.
