Graphics card maker Nvidia will apparently be showing off their newest GTX series, the 900 generation, at this year's EGX London event, with a new report suggesting that firm will be skipping out entirely on releasing an 800 line.
According to Kdrama Stars
), the 800 series will be skipped due to a disparity that it would create confusion with Nvidia's desktop and mobile product lines. The GTX 980 and GTX 970 will front the line, with the GTX 960 supposedly following slightly later. The current 780Ti, 780, 770 and 760 cards will continue to be officially supported for the mean time, presumably along with the mighty Titan Z.

, which perpetuates that the top-of-the-line GTX 980 is built using a 28mm chip clocked at 1000MHz with 4GB of video memory. The card is estimated to be around 30 per cent faster than the 780Ti.
Nvidia's 900 series is expected to launch in October 2014 according to tech giant Gigabyte. As usual with pricing over here, expect the Australian launch to have cards going for well above the $400 mark.
