    Reaching your left retina.
    Or quite the opposite, just to sell inventory. This kind of cards have always been very short lived. GTX465 is just one that comes to mind.

    Also if rumors about Kepler performance are finally true, Nvidia might not have a Kepler card to compete in that segment, GF106 could be much faster than HD7770. Considering the leaked specs I think that Nvidia just did a x2 increment to all the chips in the series, so GK106 could beat or come close to the GTX560 Ti.

    This just like my GTX 460 SE, except this one has only 24ROPs and 192bit memory interface (GTX 460 SE has 32ROPs and 256 bit memory) and obviously higher clocks @stock

    They havent been trusted since G92... Then fermi.

    This Launch has Nv scrambling like they were swarmed by Japanese Hornets to the European Honeybee.

    I remember asking once if they could just do an asymmetric arrangement to get a regular number of ram and everybody was all like "nooo that's impossible, dumbass."

    It may have been impossible with previous architectures. What's a regular number of RAM?

    Will it have 7770 power consumption? I really doubt it.

    "Regular" like the numbers people are use to with system and vram. 128/256/512/1024/2048/4096

    Never ever buy a SE version of Nvidia card. I call it the Sh!t Edition. If you want a NV card, buy the full price - full version card. Then you really enjoy the performance.

    Chill out man, we just tend to ignore the mega fanboys/n00bs. :roll:

    Fail image is fail.

    If you think about it, they only have a 3 digit numbering system as opposed to AMD's 4. And both brands don't use the last digit so nVidia only has a 2 digit system really. Since 570 and 550 are already taken, what else were they gonna do?

    I have no idea on how this is related to anything in this thread. :roll:

    The good looking sister is still healing from the plastic surgey so they send out the older, less atractive sister in a nice dress :rolleyes:

    This kind of bullshit helped me never to buy something from them since my 8800GT - maybe the most rebranded card in history... Good job Nvidia - continue to point me in the right direction.

    I dont think there was any room for this one in the 5series. Greens should be looking forward to 6series and they did another cut job again. not impressive at all

    What the HELL have you been smoking? You're talking about the company that pulled the GTX 580 out their ass with a leak only three days before it hard launched.

    Please, never post on this forum again. :shadedshu

    Hey, the MX series was decent. My GeForce2 MX 400 whooped the ass of everyone else I knew.

    I dunno, call it the GTX555 like they have done for the OEM market?!

    Nvidia do use the third digit; GTX465, GTX555, GT545, GT555m, GT435m, GT445m, GTX275, GTX285 are all examples of them going exactly this.

    TBH they should have called the GTX555 the GTX560 SE as it is a GF114 derivative not a GF116 one. Mind you a totaly screwed up naming scheme is nothing new to Nvidia, you only have to look at the complete cluster **** that is their mobile lineup naming scheme to see this. They have 3 different performing mobile GPU's all called the GT555m....

    To be fair AMD arn't much better in this regard. Once we moved past the excellent 4xxx moblility series things went down hill fast. For those who don't know the 4850m and 4870m were identical to their desktop counterparts merely clocked slower. Once the 5870m hit things went wrong, this was nothing more than a HD4870m die shrunk and clocked up a bit, certainly no mobile 1600sp Cypress GPU.

    It proves they are worried by AMD's 7xxx cards.

    Course they Are, from looks the chips are fairly scalable and can even increase Transistor/shader density to make another 7770 as a 7775/7776/7778/7779, perhaps even a dual GPU model... Honestly though, I feel that with Eyefinity, AMD could do away with the DVI ports and go with HDMI/Display ports across the card for a single slot design.

    So wait a second? What would be the difference between this and a GTX460 again?

    MX was crap, GF 4 MX 4000 would be left in the dirt by even the GF 2 GTS Pro.

    I remember that being the case quite clearly.
