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

Thanks, General.

I remember some of the talk of Nvidia trying to get fluid on one of their previous cards. Heck, I can't even remember which one it was I've been out of the game for so long.

I'll tell you something. It's not easy trying to cram 2 years worth of missed PC knowledge into 3 days in a rush of excitement to build your new rig.

What's changed since I last built a PC:

- We stopped OC'ng the FSB
- We introduced FOUR new platforms (LGA 2011, LGA 1155, LGA 1156, AM3+)...
- We started seeing unlocked multis on non "Extreme Edition" Intel chips
- Quad channel RAM
- Nvidia introduced their own "Eyefinity"
- AMD introduced their GPGPU
- AMD released the most disappointing CPU since Pentium Net Burst.. while setting new records for power draw for a processor.. and caused blackouts all over the world at the start of Q4 2011.. with the Bulldozer (560w under OC'd load!!!)
- Intel refreshed the i7
- Nvidia refreshed Fermi
- ATI introduced Cayman and ditches VLIW-4
- ATI introduced Southern Island and ditches VLIW
- We saw the first APU (AMD Fusion) introduced to the market
- We saw ATI finally take the high-end single GPU performance crown back after a hiatus since the 1900XT

Have I missed anything!?!?!?
