Default Re: nVidia's 28nm Kepler expected to hit stores in late 2011?

We were talking about single GPU surround, and unless you have the very highest ATi GPU it would seem pointless to me. (and limited at the highest) I say this as a person who's played lots of 1080p surround on dual 560Ti 2GB cards- a considerably more potent rig than a 6970. Beats me where Kepler is, but we have no valid launch date for next gen ATi either.

Devs like open standards? You listed a couple Bullet games. I have around 15 PhysX games. I guess devs prefer physX, and likely will even more with the version 3 toolkit.

Oh, a prototype at a tech show. So like I said, ATi doesn't really have any competitng 3d, you're just trying to say the 3d of the future will be better? OK, I'll buy that. The CPUs, cars, cameras, stereos, every thing else of the future will likely be better too.

You should come over to my house and try it. I do it every week, and like it so much I bought 5 more 3d monitors (NVIDIA gave me one) to do just that.,2672-10.html

In games that are “3D Vision-ready,” the experience is as profound as going from a 2D VGA card to a 3D graphics accelerator. I BS you not. If this technology didn’t have such a steep barrier to entry in its cost, I can guarantee you’d be all over it.
You know what reviewers say about ATi's 3d?

ATi 3d sucks.
