Adaptive V-Sync, that automatically turns off, when you're not getting 60fps.
In Surround, it gives an fps boost on the main monitor, while lowering the fps on both sides.
TXAA, new temporal antialiasing, with two levels, that look like 8xMSAA/16xMSAA while the fps hit is comparable to 2x/4xMSAA.
New, more advanced overclocking support, that lets you setup your own power envelope, if I understood it correctly.

And there might be even more stuff coming.
I'm proud to present the new Vin ranking scale of features.

It says so in the techpowerup article

FXAA is already available on every card through a registry hack.

So they've tested the 3 games 7970 has its worst performance in.
I'll wait for some credible reviews.

It's not a proper review and it's not like they had much time.

How do they plan to implement CUDA with a different architecture and a smaller die? I see the checkbox ticked in the GPU-Z image above, but I'm very skeptical of whether it will be included.

I saw something about dynamic vsync parameters in 290.xx or 295.xx driver branch, some hardcode part - it has 3 types for it,

VSYNCMODE_FLIPINTERVAL2 = 0x32610244,
VSYNCMODE_FLIPINTERVAL3 = 0x71271021,
VSYNCMODE_FLIPINTERVAL4 = 0x13245256,
http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=243



And it looks very similar to this kepler thingy, if not even better.. Ok it doesnt switch off vsync, but it looks like it will eliminate frame inconsistency when using vsync, no more 59-60-60-60-59-60-60-60-59 drops, pure smooth, well hopefully


yeah FXAA will be in nvcpl soon, i prefer SMAA1.2 injector though.. This new TXAA looks good too, but i kinda doubt it will be Kepler only feature its not something special, only post process AA.. But if they bind it to kepler only then they can FFFUUUUUU lol

A few of those features are exactly what i'm looking for in my next upgrade. I would still prefer a 3Gb card though, so i may have to wait for the high end cards to come out.

It does look like a nice card so far if the perf/watt is true. I'm curious about the AA modes too.

It's nice to be able to discuss gpu's now without tRollo trolling all the threads.

I'd hope so. Would be dumb not to have support for it.

I haven't read much about DX11.1, what does it bring to the table
