No comments from me and make up your own minds....
It won't be the "high end" keplers that compete with the 7970- it will be midrange keplers. For NVIDIA to launch a high end part based on a totally new architecture with a measly 15-25% performance increase over last generation is both inconceivable and unprecedented.

There probably is no mention of desktop kepler because NVIDIA doesn't comment on unreleased parts, as always.

Don't worry Shadow, your 7970s will look like a midrange offering and lose $150 -$200 of their value soon enough.
