Default Re: GK110 to feat a 512 bit bus ?

Some news on upcoming Tesla's, one based on GK110 the other using two GK104 chips (not aimed at DP compute as it's piss poor for that).

K20 is the big GK110, here's the white paper,

Some notes;
- 384-bit memory bus (no 512-bit)
- 1/3 DP compute rate
- 15 SMX units, that's 2880 CCs using the same setup as GK104, but with the DP being 1/3rd the SMX units themselves will have quite a bit added
- 240 TUs

Current figures claim over 1TF DP compute potential. At the given specs that points to clocks being pretty low (~600MHz). Sure the desktop part (if any) will be clocked higher, but considering the >1TF figure doesn't tell us much, clocks can't be confirmed yet.

So with no news on a consumer product, is GK110 a good gaming GPU? Maybe at the lower clock speeds it barely outpaces GK104, or even fails to keep up? We'll find out towards the end of the year I guess.
