kepler? - Page 3

post #21 of 27
No point in waiting for Keplar. It's most likely going to be out around early 2012

And i rather play BF3 on the first day, rather than a couple months later. People need to stop whining about the latest tech and decide whether they're going to get a 560 or a 570 (for 1080p resolution)

True, it won't be like 670 = 580, that only happens after a refresh of the current architecture.

New architectures usually bring about larger gains, more like 670 will be 30% stronger than 580 but all of this is speculation right now.

I think the top end Kepler card will be about as powerful as the GTX590 with about a 250W TDP. I am basing this off the fact that the GTX480 ~ GTX295 -20W

You shouldn´t compare the performance of a dual card to a single one.

We all have to understand that Kepler isn´t just a new release.

Nvidia is taking us towards completely new dimensions.

Less TDP is only one factor of Kepler.
More importantly is the fewer heat development at high performing processes like gaming.

28nm is said to be 3 times more efficient in its power per watt ratio than Fermi

Could be a 460 or a 580 nobody knows

But I believe the new architecture is going to be an innovation to the whole scene.

And I also strongly believe it will be released in 2011 summer .

There have been a lot of rumors about a prototype being shipped to various manufacturers for testing.

Also a lot of people seem to have reason to believe that new PCI-E technology will be used and required for Kepler.

New PCI-E tech? You mean I spent all this money on my new board for naught

Looks like an upgrade again? Ha!

If the kepler comes out and ownz my 580s I might shed a tear, but only one. Right now the performance of games even like Witcher 2 are outstanding.

Different sources for Kepler info. Pretty much confirming same thing. Again, I don't think we'll see more than a 30% increase in performance as one of the news articles kind of suggested. What you will see is a DRAMATIC decrease in power consumption per watt and in turn way less heat dissipation. Going "green" and I mean that in a energy efficient way.

If your sporting two GTX 580 SLI already or any SLI/CF cards that can get you through gaming for the next few years, you can skip Kepler. If you have one, it might be the better option to SLI your card to tide you over till 2013.

For those looking for a new upgrade from older series or maybe even those will lower PSU watts looking for more powerful solution than they can get with current cards, would be the better of options going Kepler.

The main increase in performance is going to be Maxwell in 2013. At that time I predict it may require a different type of PCIe slot on new mother board that will be made specifically to handle greater bandwidth of info for both Nvidia and AMD. Would make sense when taking into the consideration that both PCIe and GPU enhancements would need to be made for Maxwell 10-12 time increase over Kepler which is 3-4 times increase over FERMI. PCIe x32 anyone?

Course I'm guilty of speculating. We'll just have to wait and see it's true outcome.

NVIDIA reveals Fermi's successor: Kepler at 28nm in 2011, Maxwell in 2013

NVIDIA Kepler is successor to Fermi - due in 2011 already

More 28nm, 40nm Contracts Expected for TSMC

NVIDIA reveals GPU roadmap, 28nm "Kepler" in 2011
