Re: No GTX680 until Q2 2012
Kepler has a new feature, it will have hardware overclocking technology called Speed Boost like Intel's Turbo Boost.
Here will be GTX 680 4GB cards as well as factory OC cards coming soon after 23 March hard launch. Nvidia will also launch dual GK104 card in May probably will be called GTX 690 and finally the ultra high end monster chip GK110 will launch in August that will have 2304 CUDA cores.
Last year Epic showed off Samaritan Tech Demo ran on 3 GTX 580 in SLi on a PC with massive PSU but this year they showed it off again running it with a single Kepler card... on a PC with a 200W PSU!!!.
12 March will be very interesting day to find out how the hell GTX 680 can surpassed 7970 in most games benchmarks that used smaller memory interface, less memory bandwidth, a single Kepler card faster than 3x GTX 580s in SLi and far more energy efficient on a PC with tiny PSUs.
