[TPU] NVIDIA Kepler is expected to be set "well above 1 GHz" To Do Away with Hotclocks - Page 4

post #31 of 37
Im not totally sure but I think the 400 series had locked shaders but the 500 did not.

I think these 580 3GB's will not need to be change until at least 2013 (and even then it won't be necessary until Dx12 come out) neither Nvidia's or ATi's 7 series will realistically be worth the upgrade. Just save up to get two of the 8xx series which will be a more refined, more energy efficient and bug free versions.

This! at 6000 x 1080, 8xaa even two 580's are forced down to 30-45fps on battlefield 3, but everything just looks beautiful played this way. Also I saw 2780mb of VRAM usage at these settings which is scary weirdsmiley.gif

I can only see justifying the 7 series if you have a 4 series or less as all dx11 capable GPU's will be able to use dx11.1

Even then, its a bit of a nonsense argument. You need to have some terrible pixel density for 8xAA to look even slightly different than 4x, and even then 4x is just slightly better than 2x in most real-world scenarios.

I'm going to go ahead and assume anyone who cares enough about their display setup to take up their entire desk and toss a few thousand dollars into a quality surround setup is going to be running it on half decent monitors, so ultimately as you said, there is very little reason to upgrade unless you're sitting on a very outdated card.

In fact, I may just skip this generation too if new consoles don't come out soon. I doubt game developers are suddenly going to have a change of heart and start developing primarily for PC and abandoning their beloved outdated consoles. That means a few more years of the same, low demand games that even my old 9800GX2 was able to max out years ago.

Totally agree with 1920x1080 (or higher) monitors sometimes the FXAA injectors that are spreading around are enough to look perfectly smooth, and with these I can get between 50-70 fps at 6000x1080 (Ultra of course) constantly, but I like to feel I'm taxing and getting total usage out of my cards so anything around 40 fps with quality as good as possible biggrin.gif

Lol... I used to feel the same way. Now I realize there's a point where throwing a higher workload at my hardware for no reason is... well its quite frankly pointless. After burning out my fair share of cards, I'd now rather let my hardware work as little as possible to achieve the same end results wink.gif

I hate being stuck in these situations, 7970 or 780!!!
It's like picking out of CCs or Doritos...

This is driving me nuts.

600 for mobile market, Kepler is what then? Fermi 2nd gen refresh, new architecture, or what?


Jesus. Why can't they just say things loud and clear?


Edit. Not that I care though, I'm skipping this gen. HD8/GTX8 is where the fun is at.
