No, the graph was 3 times more performance per watt. What Nvidia could do is this:

- Make Kepler 40-50 percent faster than Fermi
- Make Kepler consume 150 W instead of 300 W like Fermi.

That would be about 3 times more performance per watt.

performance per watt would make a bit more sense but thats still a huge improvement. Maybe I should hold off on my 2nd 580 purchase for a bit...

Riou was right. It is per watt. Man I really need to pay attention more. But hey, with it consuming less power, I think it would be a very good idea to wait off until Kepler. But, with Battlefield 3 coming out in October, and he really needs a graphics card for it, the GTX570 would be a great buy.

I love my GTX580, plays every game at 1920x1200 perfect max settings. Well worth the $500 i paid

My only concern with waiting is that I'm about to have a 30" monitor on the way, and not being able to play BF3 maxed scares the hell out of me

Depending on what your willing to get, even an older GTX 480 is viable. A 570 is kind of the sweet spot in terms of pricing, it would do great at 1080p. The extra price could be factored into a non-reference card that has much stronger VRM's.

Well, bringing in the fact of a 30" monitor(wowwwwww) I would say get a 3GB version of a 580. The extra performance AND VRAM would be needed for that higher resolution. 1600 instead of 1080p right?
post #19 of 36
I'm a massive believer in future proofing and getting the best you can afford. You may not think it now but in 12-18 months time you'll be thinking why didn't i get the 580, it wasn't that much more. I found that when i got my 6800 GT rather than ultra, my GTX 260 rather than 280, so this time i wet the top and am so happy. Its nice to have the fastest single GPU card going around. You know it will kill games for ages.

Either card will likely max Skyrim in their sleep. Not so sure about BF3.
