You might have read here or many other places. It's part of the NVIDIA Big Bang 2 drivers.
Just in case you're in hurry ATI already has such option. j/k

No way in hell both will happen

512 bit GDDR5 is ridiculous to expect.

nVidia has been using GDDR3 since the 6800Ultra, and they still have not moved.

The 512bit bus is a must if you want to keep the 32 ROPs, cause, nVidia's ROPs are too weak compared to ATI's ROPs. And stronger ROPs means strong AA performance. More shading power won't help with the AA performance.

If they want to create a real 'big bang' this is what they should do.

Also, remember that traditionally, nVidia cards have seen big jumps in performance with the bandwidth increases.

Since the 6600GT actually. Got one in my desk drawer from long ago. Clocked at a whopping 500mhz(1000mhz effective). http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814150098

^^^ The 6800 Ultra came out before the 6600GT

But back on topic, from a price perspective, 512bit AND GDDR5 ain't happening IMO

One or the other, but not both.

I will gladly welcome it, and if it does happen I will take back these comments, but I just don't see it.

AFAIK you need an nForce board for 3xSLI@16x PCIe 2.0. Of course, you might not care at all... But, from my personal experience (it might be the board too, as it was a 750i vs my current 780i), SLI seems a little better on my current setup (16/16, was 16/8 on my 750i). So, you might want to stick to just 2 280s on your X58 board...

I for one am sick and tired of getting this refresh jumble crap....next 261, then 262, then 263 etc each with 2-3% increase in peformance, then ahh hell then put 2gpus on same board and add gddr4 ram, then heck why not another version with gddr5 ram, then shrink the die and release it as a IDK? "REFRESHED" release then carry the improved die to next actual next generation....to me seems like they are selling us their R&D testbeds.

WTF was the 9xxx series about anyway? 9800"GTX" my butt, correct me if I'am mistaken but "GTX" has always reflected the absolute top of the line in performance for NVIDIA, yet my 8800gt would smoke it, the entire 9XXX was a farce, they were worse/same across the board in performance as the 8xxx, and 2-3 weeks later we have 2xx released.

One card each gen is my rule of thumb....they can take their minimal imp releases and shove up their unimproved arses.
