    VRM for memory looks same as GTX 570/580. VRM for gpu seems to be upscaled GTX 470 VRM (+1 phase).

    Definately built with overclocking in mind otherwise you'd have gone cheaper way. Oh and definately closer to +400€ card, mark my words.

    Of course it is going to be an expensive card, it is supposed to outperform the HD7970, so it will likely be priced the same or higher.

    maybe but, why not make the pcb compact? i mean if they r butting powerplugs on top of each other?

    bcs making a ref design smaller it will fit in more cases so u can make a micro-atx or micro-itx gaming system without need to have a larger case ^^

    indeed but i hope it's in shop by the start of next month when i have some money but i hope it will be around 519~692USD / 396~528euro

    but hopefully a little lower than that to beat AMD a little ^^

    My guess is it will be priced $20-30 more than the 7970 that is if this card is a GTX 680 i have the money ready now :D .

    I'm convinced it will be well under the 7970 as price is concerned while performance will be in AMD's flagship ballpark. Remember this is the PERFORMANCE chip from NV which, due to what Tahiti is capable of (lower perf than expected), happens to compete with it. The big boy GK100-110 wil come later during the year.

    That's because it's their mid-range card, not their flagship.

    That is good, because it isn't the flagship card...

    Thats the how reason it will cost more than a 7970 it will perform around the same which will give nvidia till the end of the year to release there 7 series cards, If i remember nvidias last road map they had there flag ship card on the boarder of 2013, So these 6 series cards will give them the extra time they need.

    GK104 is the new flagship for the GeForce series.
    GK104 is only a GeForce part.

    GK112 is the new flagship for the Tesla/Quadro series.
    GK112 is only a Workstation part.

    GK106 once it comes out will take place of the mobile GPUs in the 700 series not the 600 series.

    GK107
    GK117
    GK100
    GK110
    GF1xx 28 nm
    are all dead.

    GTX 680 -> 64x8
    GTX 670 -> 64x7
    GTX 660 -> 64x6
    GTX 650 -> 64x5
    GTX 645 -> 64x4
    with the lower parts just being rebrands till the 700 series

    Two persons I know to have high level sources at manufacturers and NVIDIA haven't heard a thing about cancelling GK110, in fact one of them says it is very much alive but it won't be out any time soon. Q3 at best.

    I really would like to see the source that says otherwise.

    Late Q3 - Early Q4 for GK110 = GK112 but the original GK100 and GK110 was cancelled.

    You spent the better part of a year trying to convince people and quoting technical papers and AMD slides that said Bulldozer would outperform Intel offerings, how did that go again?

    i just hope i got money enough next money even a GTX 660 Ti would be nice if it have least 2gigs of ram if not than it's just a waste of card.
