If it's actually $400 (with a die size below Tahiti and only 256-bit memory bus that seems quite possible) this will surely shake things up! That would mean 7970 coming down $150 and everything else following by around $100-50 or so.
If its $399 its not faster, if its faster it will be $599 or higher. Pretty much that simple.

It seems like he's just seen some benches and isn't actually benchmarking the card himself yet, or has one for that matter.

Yeah I'm not putting too much faith in the rumours. I've never seen NV undercut on price when releasing second really. Usually AMD prices were just overinflated due to over demand and once NV's cards hit demand is spread out more as well as yields being better so prices fall as a result.

For NV not to charge the same as AMD for a card that performs the same seems very unlikely, so if it does happen it will be pretty shocking.

The thing is, that NV really wanted to price this card at $300, but they overestimated the yields, so they had to bump the price a bit. It is a mainstream chip after all and the only reason to name it like a high-end is because of AMD.

Just imagine, if AMD jumped in performance like it usually happens over one generation. Then GK104 would be called GTX 660 and they would have to be priced around $300-350 anyway.

If some of the rumors I'm hearing about a GK110 launching only after a month from GK104, then it makes perfect sense.

According to a site that is not entirely accurately 28nm production at TSMC has been on hiatus for a few weeks now! eek!

Kepler has a new feature, it will have hardware overclocking technology called Speed Boost like Intel's Turbo Boost.

Here will be GTX 680 4GB cards as well as factory OC cards coming soon after 23 March hard launch. Nvidia will also launch dual GK104 card in May probably will be called GTX 690 and finally the ultra high end monster chip GK110 will launch in August that will have 2304 CUDA cores.

Last year Epic showed off Samaritan Tech Demo ran on 3 GTX 580 in SLi on a PC with massive PSU but this year they showed it off again running it with a single Kepler card... on a PC with a 200W PSU!!!.

12 March will be very interesting day to find out how the hell GTX 680 can surpassed 7970 in most games benchmarks that used smaller memory interface, less memory bandwidth, a single Kepler card faster than 3x GTX 580s in SLi and far more energy efficient on a PC with tiny PSUs.

They were using only FXAA instead of MSAA though.

Not to mention, that the engine probably went through some major optimizations too in the meantime.

Here very interesting info about GTX 680's Dynamic Clock Adjustment which is very similar to hotclock, the core clock will operating in 3 modes with 300MHz on low power mode, 705MHz on standard power mode and 950MHz on high power mode or maybe Speed Boost mode.

Lets wait till we have all the official info, but, i'm disappointed. A 256 bit bus ?
