NVIDIA Kepler Inbound for March-April

NVIDIA's next high-performance GPU that will attempt to restore NVIDIA's performance leadership in the consumer graphics segment, under the GeForce Kepler family, is slated for a March-April launch, according to a VR-Zone report. At CES 2012, NVIDIA focused on its Tegra product line, and demonstrated its applications in smartphones, tablets, and even automotives, but chose to avoid talking about its GeForce family.

According to the report, NVIDIA wants to avoid doing a paper-launch like AMD, which launched its Radeon HD 7970 on December 22, 2011, but its market availability was non-existent till after two weeks, on January 9, 2012. NVIDIA wants to ensure the GeForce product based on its new high-performance GPU will be available in the market on launch-day, which is pinned somewhere within late March and early April. On April 8, Intel will launch its third-generation Core processor family.Source: VR-Zone

Well the link you posted contains specs that don't make any sense since Nvidia has flat out said they would be gone, but I'm sure it's more legitimate information...

Got my 2nd 6870, gave no performance increase over my 5970.

And to get a decent increase in performance from 6XXX to 7XXX you need to over clock...

Kinda stupid...
No $hit!! That is the most funny thing I have read in years! LOL!! :banghead::banghead:

I trust OBR more than the other 'leaks'. Anyone who knows of OBR would likely trust what he puts out over most any other rumor. If you dont know him, well, I understand your skepticism. ;)

OBR has falsified information dozens of times. Just because he happened to actually report truths with Bulldozer doesn't mean he should be exonerated. I take everything except hard evidence with a huge dose of skepticism, it prevents me from being disappointed or let down by products.

Up untill this point everything is speculation, so why get so concerned? Nvidia isn't saying anything about performance only release date so why even consider what anyone else is saying? I'll never understand why people get so worked up everytime a new GFX card is coming out, it's the same story everytime. It has been that way ever since i can remember.

Every 6 month's bring something better from both side's anyways :D
