But yeah, you're right. The power requirements seem to be getting higher and higher as time progresses.

It's mainly on the highest end parts where performance is the highest priority of all, and as you've mentioned the midrange market is where the line in terms of overall power consumption holds more steady....They stick to 150 watts or less and extract as much performance as they can without exceeding that limit.

Mind you, we still have to see the performance increases, price and power consumption, especially the latter in my case as the single 1500 watt PSU is handling things fine, but with 3 GTX580's at 950 Mhz and a pair of 6 core Xeons running at 4 Ghz, it can and does chug down some serious power at 100% loads, and there's no power supply rated higher on the market, and no room in the case to install a second PSU anyhow...


I'd basically need a new case if i wanted to install a 4th GTX580, and have room for a second power supply to power up that 4th GPU, as all 4 cards, when clocked at 950Mhz, probably have no problem chugging down 300 watts each( 1200 watts just for the 4 cards).

Kepler will be my next GPU/s...

Most likely mine as well.
Well, unless AMD releases something incredible.

I'll take a wait and see aproach on this, given i'm not exactly lacking on GPU power as it is and no game is pushing my current cards hard anyhow, so the primary benefit of getting this next generation of cards would be higher benchmark numbers above all else, and i'd need to buy 3 kepler based cards and water blocks to replace the 3 water cooled GTX580's i have now, so it would probably not be far off 2000$ for the hardware alone.


That way i could make an apples to apples comparison on just how much the performance went up since i'm using the same number of GPU's overall in triple SLI.

I will go for Maxwell, Kepler's 1-2x boost doesn't justify it..

I wish there could be a decent GPU that doesn't output 200 watts. Seriously I'm sick of my computer being a space heater. Main reason I am still on my 5770 is because it's extremely power efficient and doesn't run hot at all, while at the same time not being total garbage.

Probably March-April is my guess.
