This year we will see a fierce battle between AMD and NVIDIA, and the first mover, unexpectedly, would be NVIDIA. In NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference, NVIDIA announces that they will release a successor to the GeForce GTX Titan X (GeForce GTX Titan X2), name by far not confirmed, but it will be manufactured on a new Pascal architecture and would be available with 16GB / 32GB HBM2 memory reaching a bandwidth of 1 TB, interestingly, on same month AMD expects to launch its Radeon R9 Fury X2.
NVIDIA would launch NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X2 at GTC in April
In June, we should meet the successor to the GeForce GTX 980 equipped with the new silicon GP104 accompanied by a GDDR5X memory to provide a bandwidth of 448 GB / s, whereas the successor to the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, could use the same silicon although accompanied by HBM2 memory to double its bandwidth, but hopefully the price would not be doubled. Returning to the GeForce GTX Titan X2, sources indicate that it would be 50% faster than the Titan X reference version, while 80% faster than the successor to the GTX 980, thanks to the new GDDR5X memory and silicon would be about 50 percent faster.
