The much-awaited NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti, touted as "the most advanced graphics processing unit," will not be available for release until 2016, according to recent reports.
NVIDIA's production delay is mainly due to a delay in acquiring manufacturing equipment in order to make an important subcomponent of the graphics processing unit (GPU) which is the 16nm FinFET+ chip, according to WCCFtech. The company behind the 16nm production recently acquired the much needed equipment that will enable them to start volume production of 16nm FinFET by the second quarter or third quarter of 2015. This schedule reportedly sets back NVIDIA GPU production by another three to six months.
