I so hope this is true!!!

I can see the forum arguments already. Forget Bulldozer, forget Fermi. This will be the topic that will crash OCN servers lol

Wait and see, that's how it has always be.
All we can do right now is speculate.

Give it a few months, then we can all say how awesome the new nvidia cards "are"!

I don't quite get this..... I do not understand how middleware could improve overall performance (unless it is the initial wrapper or is used to resolve some specific heavy workload).

So its kind of like BD made the the future but sucking all together. I bet its only good in DX11 games.

Actually I do. How about you click the link and read the original story.Overall performance will be right where a mid-range gpu should be. But in games that support the built in Physx optimisations, performance will be off the charts. I'm skipping this and waiting for the real high-end Kepler. The GK104 will be a good buy for only $300.

It looks like Nvidia has consultants working pretty hands on alongside the gaming developer programmers, helping write performance coding optimizations as the games are going through their various mile-stones.

Right from the beginning, the games are written coded in such a way so as to take maximum performance advantage of Nvidia's GPU architecture.

That does not make sense. PhysX is not a performance bottleneck today. If you play a game with a dedicated GTX580 for PhysX or with PhysX off, the game does not run any better.

This is correct that TWIMTBP developers assist in coding. However, they do not restructure the entire game code nor do they write code in anticipation of a new architecture that is over a year away.... Benchmarks generally consist of recent previously released games. Reports have NVIDIA doing well in those.

You originally said

"If it is able to TROUNCE a 7970 in at least a few games, for only $300?!?!=BIG WIN."

The thing is it will beat the 7970 in some games and programs that the Physx, or optimized shaders, as the article makes out will take advantage of. This might show well in benchmarks, but when it comes to real life gaming those few programs and games are few amongst many and the 7970 will still be the better card.

This is dirty tricks by Nvidia to sell their cards and make them look better than they really are.
