How much overclocking headroom will the 600/7000 series have?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Will moving to 28nm transistors naturally make them better able to withstand the effects of over-volting, or is that unrelated?

And from a technical level, why do smaller transistors produce less heat?

How well do video cards historically overclock after moving to smaller transistor sizes? Will Nvidia and AMD add better quality components (VRM's, etc..) to be able to maximize overclocking headroom?

And finally, will the 600/7000 series be good off the bat or is it better waiting for 700/8000? I know it's all speculation at this point, but some say that 600/700 is more of a introduction which comes with relatively minor tweaks and all the benefits come with 700/8000.

What's your opinion OCN?
