GM200 has 50% more of everything compared to GM204 and it's pretty much ready for release whenever it's needed.
Also as a sidenote on the tonga discussion. Tonga and GM204 are actually remarkably similar (power, die size, transistor count, MCs etc.). With one exception. GM204 is in a completely different performance category.
I'm only thinking in terms of their flagship cards that are sold to enthusiasts as them, which is either a manipulative marketing scheme or they are changing naming models. If they've only released 970 and 980 they're going to need to launch a 990 or a new Titan, but Titans have been outside of enthusiast price range. They're more for rich snob at that price point, basically epeen or bragging rights. This isn't terrible it'll create a marketing war. I like marketing war it drives prices in the favor of the consumer. However I feel 970s and 980s are underpowered for the next generation of Graphics and demand as them being a standalone unit not able to compare at 4k. Truth is that NVidia is taking too long to adopt HBM, and AMD had already beat them to Delta Compression testing.
