GK110 taped out this month so unlikely
October is the safest bet for retail but there can be demos by GTC

Also, Fab 14 isn't 2xnm. And if Fab 15 phase 1 isn't running (even though I'm pretty sure it is at least in some form), that proves my case even more.
All the GigaFabs are 28nm
2% of the 841,000 wafers were 28nm that accounts to 16,000 28nm wafers
Q1 2012 is 5-7% 45,000 28nm wafers
Q2 2012 is 7-9%
Q3 2012 is 9-13%
If we take Q4 results divide them by 35
16,000/35 => 457 28nm wafers
AMD & Nvidia since the Tahti die and the Kepler die are about the same size would allow for 150 chips per wafer
68550 chips per Nvidia and AMD
34275 pass being able to work
3427 pass being able to provide target clocks
(for AMD and Nvidia for a total of 6854 that is a 5-10% yield rate)
