GeForce 800 Series
|Predecessor||GeForce 700 Series|
|Successor||GeForce 900 Series|
The GeForce 800 Series is a family of graphics processing units being developed by Nvidia, used in desktop and laptop PCs. It serves as the introduction for the Maxwell architecture (GM-codenamed chips), named after the Scottish theoretical physicist James Clerk Maxwell.
The Maxwell architecture, the successor to Kepler, will have for the first time an integrated ARM CPU of its own (Project Denver); This will make Maxwell GPU more independent from the main CPU according to Nvidia's CEO Jen Hsun Huang.
Maxwell was announced in September 2010 and is expected to be released in 2014.
After Maxwell, the next architecture is code-named Volta. Nvidia has announced that the Volta GPU will feature stacked DRAM.
