Should've just gone to the NVidia site in the first place and not doubt what I was initially going to write .
Yeah, they are both considered "Streaming Processors", just Nvidia and ATI have to market theirs by giving them cooler sounding names. Nvidia chose Cuda cores and ATI went with the big name change of "Stream Processors". Leaving off that 'ing" really makes a difference I guess

Even though each company uses a radically different approach with the SP's, they are still both called SP's. Marketing is to blame for the confusion.

And you guys are still babbling on about gpu's.
Field Programmable Gate Arrays and other simpler devices are being volume ramped on 28nm. NOT GPU'S.

I am VERY excited for the 680's
I don't see why they can't double the ALU clusters since 28nm is less than half the size of 40nm.

When you've got proof, people tend to give more weight to what you say.

You mean the proof you get from actually reading their announcements. Or the proof you get from jumping to a conclusion through a carefully crafted announcement.

http://www.analog-europe.com/en/tsmc...s_id=222902610

“Building our 7 Series FPGA and processing families on the 28nm HPL process

Other companies launching products based on TSMC’s 28nm technology include AMD, NVidia and Qualcomm. TSMC's 28nm design ecosystem is available through its Open Innovation Platform, with qualified EDA design tools and third-party IP ready for customer designs.

NVIDIA's Kepler GPUs have also taped out at 28nm, but will not be launched until Q1 of 2012. Sources have indicated that the chip is quite large and yields are not yet high enough to ensure a successful launch at this time.

In this information black hole. You are going to get field programmable chip sets and 28nm cdma phone 3g and 4g chipsets. It's still iffy on gpu's.

So unless you're into digital signal processing and using a talking rock or speaking stone. You are still not down with 28nm.

Are they going to have problems with this node too?

I am still very confused as to if I should purchase a GTX 460 to hold me over for the GTX 7XX series or shoot for a GTX 670\\680
My main concern is power consumption, and second concern is performance. I'd not feel good using a GTX 460!

So are the 680's out before I.B?.. I was going to do the all in one upgrade, since I'll be needing 3 680's anyways for my 3 screen upgrade.. Are these going to be worth water cooling? and I can only imagine the price of the 680's, probably like 30% more pricey than a gtx580.

I still don't get why so many people are getting excited for OEM only products.
