Details on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 880 have begun to leak, with a report from Tyden.cz claiming that the GeForce GTX 880 will be a Maxwell-based GPU that will dominate the single GPU market. The GeForce GTX 880 will move from the family name of GK110 (the 'K' is for Kepler) to the GM204 part. GM204 is the GK110 equivalent of the Kepler family, but based on the Maxwell architecture.

1. The first digit, the 8, refers to the generation. The current generation of their cards is 7, so 8 is the new one that will come out this year.
2. The second digit refers to the power of the card within that family. Generally 8 has been the highest, although there was a 690 card that came out.
3. The last digit is generally 0, but they have had some cards that ended in 5, that were half way between the second digit
So the GTX 880 would be the most powerful card in the newest generation that will come out in 2014.
This level of card is for folks that are either really into gaming, or who do a lot of video processing. If you want a solid card for a reasonable price you'll probably want something like the 850 or 860 card. Or you can pick up last year's generation for a good price once the new ones come out.
I can not say that I'm not happy with using it, but after years somehow I'm used to Nvidia...
I still remember one of my first ATI cards - Rage with... 4MB of memory! ;)
