Hopefully EVGA or someone else has a 4GB version at release because 2GB is a huge step backward vs the 7970/7950 or even the 3GB 580

But the GTX470 was quite a bit more powerful than a GTX275.

Kepler seems to be about 1.5~2.0 Fermi at each level (GK110 ~ 2x GF110, GK104 ~ 1.5xGF114...) so huge perf boosts should be expected.

We'll see. Table is still missing the GK107, but that should be mostly laptop.
Am I missing something?

2xx to 4xx, big boost
4xx to 5xx, moderate boost

but

5xx to 6xx will be big boost?

So, what the **** is the point of this naming convention?

HERE:
2xx to 4xx, big boost (new process)
4xx to 5xx, moderate boost (same process)
5xx to 6xx big boost (new process)

Names are just marketing BS... always have been... likely always will be.

Yea my point was that they should skip the 6xx series and go straight to 7xx since it's a new process.

But as you said, the naming is just BS anyways.

lol 1536cores is apparently true and possible perf.,

GTX680 = GK104
1536 Cuda Cores
3*32SPs/SM
8 TMUs/SM
4 SMs/GPC
4 GPCs
32 ROPs
256bit bus
2GB 5.0Gbps GDDR5
950MHz core (with "turbo core" 1050mhz)
2*6pin



http://we.pcinlife.com/thread-1831876-1-1.html

well to be honest it looks as expected, rivaling Amd 7950-7970 for a little lower price.

but overall its still weaker, i mean only 40-50% faster then GF110 512core (stock clock) with 3x more cores? ok..
I guess its because of lower bandwidth, same 16compute units and less ROPs


I think Gk110 is going to be that killer, hopefully in Q3-Q4 2012 like GF110 2years ago?

I am thinking due to reading posts from other websites that maybe this is so because of "no more hot clocks". The alleged benches as supplied are supposedly in line with no hot clocks (but increase in SPs). If hot clocks were still employed then those number may have been a lot higher (hypothetical guess). But that would mean, the TDP would go up and probably play havoc with other aspects of the GK104 (including yield).

They could have doubled SPs but allowed for hot clocks or they could have as rumors suggest tripled SPs but done away with hot clocks. But maybe architecturally they decided no more hot clocks as they can pack more into an area w/o having to resolve to hot clocks with 28nm?

At any rate I will await for more substantiated benchies etc than a Chinese website

If it is $299 and 30-40% faster than my 580GTX as the alleged benchies suggest, I may take the plunge....

Congrats dude. Maybe for wedding gifts, you could list a couple of Keplers.

or..GK110?

I have have the upgrade itch and I think I would get more ROI with GPUs than CPU etc

Kepler may be revealed this weekend...who knows at that PDXlan or something...or maybe not.

But i am guessing we will have 99% confirmation by the end of the month at any rate

OFF topic any one wanna join MUYA's stag/bachelor party? around November

Yeah GK110 looks more interesting


Im gonna wait for that mofo and then decide AMD or NV

Or maybe skip and wait for 28nm refresh, but then again AMD's response to GK110 is already that refresh hmmm


Interesting times ahead us, finally

I'm not getting anything with a 256bit bus.

I want true high end cards with a 512bit bus on GDDR5, no matter the price.

Btw, hi again guys
