Please, don't make any more of your "educated" guesses until you become educated enough to make them. thumb.gif

Not sure how you can say this, not one bit. In fact I smell success because of Fermi learning from any mistakes. A redesigned architecture could in fact change the game board all together quite possibly.

Fermi performance matched AMD's quite on par, not sure if your implying both Nvidia and AMD failed that arena of performance?

IF it was disaster because of heat or power consumption, personally heat and power draw mean nothing to those of us with good ventilation cases and good PSU's. Neither of which effects us. I'm for raw performance with less headaches with driver support regardless of the latter. Something I didn't know existed with GPU's until last year.

Wish i knew what GK112 was going to be since it's apparantly a monster of a card from all brief descriptions....probably Maxwell?

GK112 is the GTX780

lol GK104 is most probably going to wipe the floor with the 7970...... and here you are, Proffesor Guess.

dude, first fermi (gtx 480) even with tornado inside of your case was easly hitting 90C.... and this card is rumored as +200W TDP and nvidia claims that it is only a half way through keplers models (mid range card). think now what a full power kepler will need..

That was a design fault in the cooler. Far too small of a fan. (not that it mattered as it could handle 100+. So technically, no fault at all.) 580 is barely any more efficient. Yea a little bit. But runs 15 to 20 degrees lower because of the better cooler.

Whatever full power Kepler will need, they will properly provide it.

Though I don't believe anything I've read yet regarding Kepler and taking all these rumors with a grain of salt, including all the Monday night arm chair speculation, I'll hold off and will base it's success or failure on actual performance.

I'm not saying the 400 series weren't hot cards (funny tornado analogy btw smile.gif) but it didn't keep it from performing either as the furnace was built to handle the heat. wink.gif

The GK104 is much smaller than Tahiti, Radeon HD 7970 family and according to our intel it should end up faster in some cases. In all DirectX 11 games, Nvidia’s GK104 based Kepler card should end up faster, at least this is what a few sources are confirming.

Sources close to Nvidia are confident that the green team will win this round, but as always let’s take this with a grain of salt. Either way, AMD already has 28nm products in the shops and it commands a clear lead over Nvidia, so there is a lot of catching up to do.

One thing I'm confused about. GK110/112 are supposed to be faster than GK104, but yet GK106/108 are slower?? How does that work?

NVIDIA code names for Kepler are similar to Fermi

GF100 > GF104 > GF108 but then when the 500 series released the GF110 > GF100

Now with Kepler, we'll get GK100 (cancelled) > GK104 > GK106/108 and then when GK110/GK112 releases, it'll be better than GK100 was suppose to be

That makes sense, yeah.
Seems like GK100 might have been cancelled due to a too high power consumption (seeing how midrange GK104 takes 200+W already) and GK110 / 112 will be the corresponding fixes / optimizations that will come out later as GTX 700 series.

Another option would be they are saving them for a potential GTX 690 that will consist of a single GPU this time rather than a dual-GPU card.
