[OBR] "Early next week Nvidia starts manufacturers in Asia to present graphic cards based on Kepler" - Page 5

If the 680 is out in the next 3 months, I'll eat my monitor. By the time it does come out it will need to beat the 7970 handily.
Though progression in any form is always good.

Well seeing as how the new Ultrabooks will have Ivy Bridge + Kepler, they will most likely be released in April-May? I can't believe their desktop counterparts would not be released WAY before that... at least by a month?

Would be nice, so I can finally decide to go Red or Green... thumb.gif

You still feel that way even knowing the mobile releases will have a GTX 6xx designation and the desktop releases will be GTX 7xxx? I mean, does it make sense to you that a company would release 7xx before 6xx? Just the model designations alone would hint at the release order, does it not?

And where does it show that the desktop would be 7xx? The very fake Kepler graph showing a misspelling of Metro Last Light?

It doesn't really matter what the end model names would be, as it's, presumingly, the same architecture.

Edit: most sites are still reporting gtx 680 as the mainstream product.

The source you quoted is a full on idiot, his website has tons of anti AMD rhetoric all over his website. Hardly objective. Also, there were several rumors several months
ago suggesting that 600 series would be mobile, and 700 would be desktop. Rumors are rumors, nobody is sure yet.

Lastly, the leaks in the past few days have suggested that notebook Fermi die shrinks have shipped, clocked at 405 mhz for ultrabooks. Rumors are rumors I guess

No need to call anyone an idiot. Never been to this site before these Kepler rumors, no idea how reliable it is. The difference is, we know the source (OBR in this case), rather than a few leaked graphs with unknown origin. I would assume to closer we get to the release date, the more accurate the leaked info is. From what I've read OBR has been reliable on past leaks/rumors.

I would personally not verify a rumor with another rumor, but keep them separated on their own.

I'll wait until they are actually released before making my judgement. I remember back in 2010 I sold my 5870 to pick up two 480s...When honestly it would have been cheaper to just pick up two more 5870s. I remember back then the hype was that the 480s would blow the 5870s out of the water. After time yes with driver improvement there was a 10-15% performance increase in certain games but that came at a cost...So much heat!!!!

facepalm doh.gif ... dude you need more than 1 gtx580 to get playable fps @ 5760x1080 at any kind of details level... unless you still play quake III rolleyes.gif

When will people realize that its just a name.....
The designation has absolutely nothing to do with the order the cards are being released, its simply there to make a clear distinction between two different groups of graphics cards (in this case mobile and desktop).

GF 100 Series (OEM cards)
  • Geforce G 100 - Release: 10th March 2009
  • Geforce GT 120 - Release: 10th March 2009
  • Geforce GT 130 - Release: 10th March 2009
  • Geforce GTS 150 - Release: 10th March 2009


GF 200 Series
  • Geforce GTX 260 - Release: 16th June 2008
  • Geforce GTX 280 - Release: 16th June 2008

The 100 Series came out about 1 year after the launch of the first GTX 200 cards.
I hope its clear now..
