Default Re: next gen kepler to support dx 11.1, also take a year to rollout all cards

The dual GPU GK110 cards and highest end GK 112 single GPU being Q4 2012 or even early 2013, and if true Nvidia just handed the high end GPU market to ATI on a silver platter, and no matter how you cut it, slice it or dice it, that's not a short time period at all...
Maybe, but also maybe at the expense of the sweet spot and mobile, where nVidia is aiming for this time before the big guns are ready. Spend engineering resources on a robust sweet spot offering and then sweeten it with a seamless high end offering when the 28nm matures. In other words, don't make the mistakes of Fermi.

What happened with Fermi was they placed resources on the high-end at the expense of mobile and performance and down sectors and AMD did over-take nVidia in over-all discrete market share.
