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

Unfortunately, since their mainstream card will have to compete with ATI's high-end until Q3-Q4, then 2GB isn't enough for those who like to mod their games.

You can get a 3GB 580 but they still sell for 580$ on newegg and are in very small quantities. On the other hand, you can get a 7950 3GB with equal or better performance for $460.

I guess it's possible they could release a 4GB version of Kepler mainstream, which is what they really need to do to compete.

i7-2700k @ 5.0 GHz
Nvidia GeForce 570 2.5GB Tri-SLI
Asus P67 WS Revolution (Tri-SLI)
OCZ Vertex SSD x 4 (Raid 5)
G.Skill 8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz
PC Power & Cooling 950W PSU
