Nvidia better have cut the power usage drastically/ made the card much smaller so that it fits in small htpc or there's not going to be that much point in upgrading from the 780/TI
I only want to see one 6pin,or 8 pin for the "overclocking" cards

I hope we'll be able to overclock these GPUs as much as actual GTX 770 and 780

I want at least 25% faster stock v stock with 8GB memory, Until that time comes I'll stick with the 780 Ti.

Very wise, I'm just still bemused as to why nVidia decided to skip 800 Series name though...

800 is mobile series Maxwell
900 Desktop Maxwell
1000 Mobile GPU
1100 Desktop GPU

What is this card compared to the GTX 770 or the 780 in terms of product stack? If it's a replacement for the 680/770 on the same fab process those are rather impressive results. Nice 4GB vram to boot.

I have to admit I was expecting a bit more, especially with all the rumours, if I were to upgrade [at least beating the 780ti would make me consider it] but if it is to replace the 780 then is this just the r9 285 nvidia style?! If so all rather uninspiring.

Nope, there is a 900 series for mobile coming as well. I think the reason is that the mobile GPUs were one generation ahead of the desktop GPUs, i.e. there are already 8xx mobile cards.

Why did they skip the 800 series? They skipped the 300 series back ~4 years or so ago, for whatever reason.

Nvidia's branding has gone through many weird transitions, but then again I can't think of a single company that does branding well. They all make an obscene mess at some point.
