Default Re: nvidia vows to ship kepler by years end

well, with mb makers like msi and asrock preparing for ivy bridge and implementing pci-e 3.0 and x79 which should have pci-e 3.0, I think it's essential that both AMD and Nvidia get off their butts and get something out that makes use of the higher bandwidth. The only thing nvidia and AMD are going to have to sacrifice is the 28nm process and go with 40nm for the new cards since TSMC is still getting ready for the 28nm process. If either waits and since TSMC supplies both with their silicon, we could see pci-e 2.0 making a longer stay than anticipated. So, if you say 6 month layback, it will be for both companies, not just one.
