Way ahead of you dice, have an article ready for the new info and have the video in there.

It is interesting to see AMD and Nvidia go for a different processing node this time, though it is great to see AMD taking full advantage of FinFET transistors.

The engineer talking about the "uplifted the frequency of the product" has me excited too, maybe Polaris will be AMD's Maxwell.

Wait, Different processing nodes ? So will Nvidia be on 16nm ?

Hmm, Will be interesting to see the performance difference between 16nm and 14nm, Can't imagine it will be a lot though if any otherwise Nvidia would have gone 14nm.

It depends, 16nm is TSMC and 14nm would mean Samsung for Nvidia.

Samsung is fairly new to renting out their foundries, so Nvidia took the safe bet with TSMC. Hopefully one won't give much advantage over the other as I want both sides to have great cards.
