Battlefield 5 may 6th

Nvidia next-gen GPU and Battlefield 5 to be revealed on the same day

Multiple news outlets point out that Nvidia will be showcasing two of its upcoming and eagerly awaited Pascal based graphic cards to the media. One of them rumoured to be the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. Co-incidentally(?), EA started a landing page which indicates that the upcoming Battlefield will be launched worldwide on the same day- May 6th.

As far as what is known, Nvidia Pascal architecture is based on 16nm process and it will be using GDDR5X and GDDR5 for GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 respectively. The GPU core ‘GP104-200-A1‘ would be using GDDR5 and ‘GP104-400-A1‘ would be using GDDR5X. These cards will be succeeding the existing GTX 980 and the GTX 970, though the pricing for the Pascal variants is unknown for now.

AMD Radeon isn’t very far behind with its upcoming Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 that would be showcased in Computex 2016 held in Taiwan and E3 2016 held in Los Angeles. Irrespective of who provides the best performance for the buck, it’s exciting to see newer architecture and SKUs from both sides are coinciding with DX12 based games that will be releasing within the same time frame. Will Battlefield 5 be a good game to play? Time will tell!
