[4Gamer]Nvidia 28nm GPU Roadmap Reveals Combination of AMD's "Sweet Spot" Strategy and Flagship...

Gk110 : Configure GK104 × 2, supports PCI Express Gen.3
Gk104 : Performance GPU, supports PCI Express Gen.3
Gk106 : Mainstream GPU, supports PCI Express Gen.3
Gk107 : Entry GPU (only OEM?), supports PCI Express Gen.2

From what I could gather from the article is appears Gk107 will be a PCI-e 2.0 version of Gk 106 but with some features disabled. Gk 104 will be the Performance chip and the dual GPU version (Gk110) will occupy the high-end for Nvidia for much of 2012. Towards the end of the year, we should see a true monolithic GPU-based flagship (Gk 112).

The roadmap and article hints at Nvidia possibly shifting towards the AMD-like strategy of designing for the mainstream and scaling performance up. They still will release a monolithic GPU eventually however. With AMD launching 28nm GPUs in early 2012 and Nvidia's Gk 112 flagship not expected until the end of 2012, I believe the possibility exists of AMDs 28nm refresh launching uncomfortably close to Gk 112 which could be trouble, but it's way too early to tell for sure.

As an aside, I remember a few threads here criticizing comparisons of single-GPU cards to dual-GPU cards mostly coming from Nvidia fanboys calling it apples and oranges. Well now with Nvidia apparently ready to use the same strategy, what do you have to say now? tongue.gif

Unfortunately im pretty sure it will only have an effective bus of 256bit according to this slide. On dual gpu cards they sometimes combine the size of the memory buss for both gpu's even though they truly have half that to use.

Soo... According to the graph we won't be seeing GTX 680s until mid 2012, not feb/march like many were thinking...

I'm sighing so hard right now, got someone wanting to buy my computer now and keep telling them to wait because i'll be going ivy bridge/kepler soon... but it seems to keep getting delayed on both departments.

looks closer, the GK112 is a single gpu it has no x 2 in there
GK110 is a dual gpu, because you can see 384bit x 2 wink.gif

Damn it... I wanted the 680 card for late april ~ may with non-reference PCB for a better OC. Also this is my jump to the WC again, its going to be delayed, again frown.gif

I'm wondering if it's laid out to show equivalence to current-gen. The way I'm reading it, the "580 slot" will be a dual-GK104 (maybe ~$500?), and the "590 slot" will become a 512-bit (drool) single-GK112 flagship (~$700?). And is this Kepler? If so, it puts a damper on my plans to jump to the 680-equivalent.
