We know that now in production GPU actual 28-nm technology, but NVIDIA and AMD are already preparing the transition to a more efficient 20 -nm process technology and related products should be born in the near future. At the same time gradually accustom more ” thin ” technological standards, say, Taiwanese TSMC, reportedly buying additional equipment for $ 47 million to help modernize its production lines to implement the 16-nm technology FinFET.
The mass production of chips 16FinFET should start in the late second or early third quarter of 2015, indicating a lag from the original plans TSMC, and as ready GPUs, that because of the complexity of their design the production of such products is expected to the end of 2015. By the way, the use of technology 16FinFET, as far as is now known, is provided in the manufacture of such GPU NVIDIA, as GM200, GM206 and second revision GM204.
Moreover, the chip GM200 assumed as flagship solution for video cards such as the GeForce GTX Titan II and GeForce GTX 980 Ti, which indicates the level expected of him might. At the same time, the 16-nm edition GM204, is expected to form the basis of the current heirs GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce GTX 970, and a more compact GM206 is useful in the manufacture of graphics accelerators middle class. However, because of all the delays in the appearance of these products on the shelves can be expected only in 2016.
