Kepler Unbeatable: NVIDIA

The tiresome wait for NVIDIA's next-generation GPU is drawing to a close. Or so suggests a Facebook wall post by NVIDIA Italy, which reads (in Italian, of course):
Aspettando Kepler... pazienza, pazienza, pazienza che il momento giusto arriverà, e allora... non ce ne sarà più per nessuno! :-)
That can be translated as "Waiting for Kepler ... patience, patience, patience, the right time will come, and then ... it will be unbeatable (sic)." From various sources we're hearing that there will be hectic activity surrounding the launch of NVIDIA's next-gen GPU in the weeks to come.

I'm confused; I thought we were getting a stopgap card in the next few weeks and then the high end single gpu at the end of the year, what it is then? :confused:

OF COURSE it MUST be unbeatable (with a 10-20% difference) if it comes three months after the 7970 otherwise it will be a failure.

in this time kepler has extremely powerfull sm architecture and much number cuda core's .... so we saw GK107 with 75w beating hd7770 and much power full than hd6850

Well, the longer it takes for nVidia to release Kepler, the more people will buy a 7000-series AMD video card and the more time AMD has to work on their next GPU line up. nVidia might be taking a long time, but unless they can make their CUDA cores less bulky (they're big in comparison to AMD's shaders,) they're going to keep running into the same problems Fermi ran into.

Remember all the hype for Bulldozer? Hello, Kepler. :nutkick:

Nvidia is trailing far behind from the looks of it, it by all means should beat AMD bad at release just due to the fact the release will be about 6 months from Amd's 8xxx release.

...but until it does, it's just nVidia making claims without a product.
