    NVIDIA teased what could be an upcoming product on its Facebook page. The teaser picture shows a black surface with NVIDIA "eye" logo etched onto it, and a caption that reads "It's Coming". Speculation is rife, on what that could be. Our own guess is that that's a graphics card pictured with the top of its cooler facing upwards, and rear panel bracket facing forwards (one could see what look like the exhaust vents). Could this be the dual-GPU GeForce GTX 690, or something entirely different? We know for one that this most definitely has something to do with the GeForce brand (and not other brands such as Tegra, Tesla, Quadro, etc.,) since it was posted on the NVIDIA GeForce Facebook page.

    Raising the brightness-curve of the picture (with Photoshop) could bring more light into this ... Did that. Still clueless.

    Could be a computer Chassis >.>

    The shape above the eye logo reminds me of the Old 480 reference cover.
    And did Nvidia use the complete logo on any of it's recent Cards ?

    Reaching your left retina.
    It's been a long time since I think they should. To answer your question with another one: why would you buy a high-end graphics card? Not to play a crappy console port that for sure.

    If they want PC gaming to grow they have to make it clear what PC hardware is capable of and game developers are failing to do so in most cases, so the answer is to release a game by themselves that sets the standard.

    Idk for GK110 its too soon.. Unless they're gonna go with GK104 route and slap on those extra 800cores and extra compute units/polymorph engines.


    Although I still bet on 670TI, btw unofficial beta2 301.25 driver has both 680gtx & 670TI support.
