    Some GM204 and GK104 cards are not exactly huge. My Zotax 970 is about half the length of my 6970.

    FYI, the base clock for the laptop GTX 980 is 1064 MHz compared to the desktop GTX 980's 1126 MHz, although that number is a minimum and NVIDIA says that it "varies by model."

    These laptops are equally huge, and the card in that pic seems to be larger than the MXM III standard.

    Plus the display I/O and cooling aren't shown.

    Full Maxwell non-Titan coming soon? ...or 23/24 activated SMM for a 980Ti Ultra?
    Or dual 980Ti on a single PCB?

    Pure clickbait.

    Nothing concrete whatsoever, just an announcement of an announcement about an event which might have been completely fabricated to begin with. I feel dumb to have even clicked that link, but I didn't see it was Wfftech, or I wouldn't have.

    Please, mark appropriately with warnings and stuff next time, alright? :p

    Well, to be honest, Nvidia hadn't had dual-GPU board since the GK110-based Titan Z (not counting Tesla SKUs) and with the prospect of dual Fiji coming soon, it is logical to assume there would be an appropriate answer to the challenge.

    WCCFTech has posted a followup report that claims to have more details related to the claimed secret meeting in New York.

    Apparently the upcoming product is a GM200-based dual-GPU card.

    There definitely was a meeting with press invited. Even Linus mentioned it more than a week ago.

    Starting from one minute into the video.

    Dual GPU cards are so boring. Give me Pascal already! (Although a full GM200 at overclocked 980Ti speeds would also be very nice).

    The new GTX GPU is likely a fully enabled dual GM204 card with 8+8=16GB. NVidia has already shown the hardware configuration with the Tesla M60 announcement last month.

    as usual with AMD, the hardware is potent but software /support is lacking. Nvidia GRID is all over the place with big promotion done by VMware, Citrix, Nice and now Microsoft. You find endless resources in their website and you can even try the service for free with VMware: http://www.nvidia.com/object/vmware-trygrid.html
    main Nvidia software partners:
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/nice.html
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/vmware.html
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/microsoft.html
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/citrix.html
    Server and solution partners:
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/grid-partners.html
    Certified list of servers:
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/grid-certified-servers.html
    and so on...

    now in comparison, AMD: http://www.amd.com/en-us/solutions/servers/virtualization
    and that's it, a single page with a whopping total of 1 video, 4 white papers and a link to a Microsoft page that is not even dedicated to virtualization...

    Now tell me how they can compete when they don't have any resource to develop/promote the technology ?

    Looks like AMD's business strategy has been leaning to be more like a vendor for licensed IPs for third parties and not so much as branding/driving force on the market as Nvidia does. The only really strong (consumer) IP left for them is the Radeon line, while the CPU and APU brands have been stuck down the bottom of the bin for years now and the chaotic marketing policies jumping in and out made the damages only more persistent.
    Software and platform support is a whole another tragedy -- just compare at how many device driver and middle-ware distributions both AMD and Nvidia have to release each time. One would expect an underdog like AMD to put much more effort and ingenuity in multiple directions, but they still continue to rely on the next "miracle" tech that would buy them some advantage over the competition in a single shot.

    From HWBattle: "HDMI 2.0 support, which is released GTX 750 variants ?!" (original).

    According to this page from Gainward, the GM206-150 has 512 CCs.

    Does AMD have any cards that do HDMI 2.0? It's difficult to find this information.
