You mean Maxwell is what Pascal should have been.
I rmb reading a article back in 2013 about the speculation of Maxwell with 20nm SoC in 2014, they mentioned that the flagship GPU will comes with 3840 cores using Maxwell architecture in 2014. It was pretty spot on. Except the release was delayed for 2 years due to the failure of 20nm node.
We should all thanks TSMC in fact for this, had 20nm been successful we would have enjoy this level of performance back in 2014, and Fury X with 20nm would have been more competitive as well.
