Edit war[edit]

The information about an ARM CPU shoud be discussed on this talk page rather than just reverting each other constantly. Per the three-revert-rule I should block you both already. If either of you makes another edit regarding this information (or the ref for Project Denver) I will block that person. You can both edit the article with other, unrelated info. Discuss the reasons for/against including the information here, on the talk page. Once an agreement has been reached, then the article can be updated to reflect that.

TSMC not cited as the problem in source link[edit]

This is for a dubious tag I placed about claims of problems at TSMC. The claims in the article are unsourced.

The source link only mentions TSMC once in the entire article, stating "Traditionally we’d see a new manufacturing node ready from TSMC to align with the new architecture". While this does assure that it is TSMC manufacturing for Nvidia, it does not specify any problem at TSMC. In fact, it rather does the opposite, suggesting that usually at least the manufacturer is already ready (so, one might assume that the problem really is Nvidia's). I don't want to get into the details of that, because I think you could find claims both directions — the gist of it as I understand it is that the problem Nvidia has is that the cost is too prohibitive for them to be first in line over at TSMC: Nvidia themselves have said as much, producing slides demonstrating the lack of price performance at 20nm.

I added that, and you're right it isn't sourced. I have read that it was due to the delays from TSMC, but all the articles I can find supporting that are speculating that it's TSMC's delays rather than basing it on a statement from Nvidia or the like. Since I can't find a reliable source, I removed it from the article. Good catch. James086Talk 12:55, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Shouldn't there be no products here yet?[edit]

Does it say 850? If not then it's not an 800 Series. Sagittarian Milky Way (talk) 03:20, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Nvidia is messing with model numbers. Maybe this page should be changed to GeForce Maxwell based cards. The article is incorrect the only Maxwell part is the 750 Ti, the 750 is not a Maxwell GPU. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Danjw1 (talkcontribs) 23:00, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

800 numbering cancelled?[edit]

There's sources indicating that NVIDIA could skip the numbering series and call this generation GeForce 900. For now it's only a rumor and it's unclear what the scheme would be, so let's keep an eye on it until this is settled. --uKER (talk) 23:22, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

--somebody has updated the page to say nvidia has officially announced this, but their citation only points to yet another rumor page. probably needs to be removed — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:04, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
