AMD may have declared that its next-generation GPU family won't arrive before October, but that isn't stopping NVIDIA from launching its GeForce GTX 700 series much earlier. While AMD's lineup is banking on sales during the X'mas shopping season, NVIDIA is going after the pre-Summer system upgrade crowd. According to a Bright Side of News (BSN) report, NVIDIA's new lineup will make its debut no later than this May.

Everyone forget about yesterdays speculation on TITAN ULTRA.

TITAN LE aka 780 was on par with 7970 GHZ



Titan came out to be around 28% faster then 680. So very little room to manuever for the 780. If AMD decided to bring about a 7970 GHZ refresh and for referance look at the Cape Verde to Bonaire improvements.

The GeForce GTX 770 could be similar to today's GeForce GTX 680
Wasnt that the case and that upset a lot of buyers. 670 being so close to 680 performance. Is it gonna be release and wait 2 months for sales and then upset people all over again.

There has to be something more to it or it just looks like a squeezing blood from a stone strategy.

Yet again the same old strategy of taking the same performance from previous gen but notching it down one in the naming scheme of the new gen.

IE: 680 perf> renamed 770, 670 perf> renamed 760 rinse and repeat whilst charging the same price for performance, only the high end sees a performance increase though expect to pay $600-$1000 for that

Then TITAN LE was fiction, Titan will remain a class isolated himself and now the owners of the GeForce TITAN are more happy their purchase remains the spearhead.

From W1zzards Titan conclusion
NVIDIA's new GTX Titan shows the full potential of the Kepler architecture. Being based on NVIDIA's flagship GK110 silicon, it delivers outstanding single-GPU performance, easily claiming the title of "world's fastest GPU." Compared to the GTX 680, we see a real-life performance improvement of 30% at 2560x1600, or 23% when averaged over all resolutions
So GTX 780/Titan LE is gonna be 15-12% faster then 680. :wtf:

Not to mention the price :shadedshu

Kind of depressing. Just overclock your current 600 series cards and save the money if there is no architectual differences.

+1: This bold part of your statement.

If someone has a video card that is pre-600 series or pre-7000 series it might make sense, but it seems a bit wasteful to upgrade if you already had a Kepler GPU unless you're upgrading from a mainstream card. I think enthusiasts will be disappointed where the general market will be happy with it or people entering the enthusiast market who don't already have a nice card will be happy with it, but it doesn't seem to be much of an upgrade for 680/670 owners.

All GPU consumers should be concerned about the diminishing returns of potential upgrades if these charts are true. Why would AMD bother pushing themselves too hard to compete if Nvidia isn't showing up to the table either? especially with AMD's struggles. People will stop buying anywhere near as much products as they have in the past, and the prices will sky rocket for the average power user. Spending $450 every 1.5-2 years for a gpu that only saves 15 watts of electricity over it's predecessor and 5% performance increase doesn't sound too fun. *jimmies=rustled.

if AMD could have a card faster than Titan, they would also price it at rediculous price unless they could do tons of them at low production cost (unlikely?)

also, if we indeed end up having new cards being 5% faster and saving 15watts it would be good for me cause i'd be able to keep my 7970 for a long time, thus making it a good buy :D

There's a limit to the Kepler overclock due to the voltages being locked down. Even Titan (the kepler overclocker) has a measly 37mv to add.

There's a lot of rumour though that the 8xxx series from AMD is a GCN refresh as well though so it seems both camps may be tinkering and doing nothing more than maturing their processes and software to boot.

Main difference is, AMD will probably do it at a consumer acceptable price point but Nvidia will feed off the Titan price point. Go figure, nothing new there, unfortunately.

if AMD could have a card faster than Titan, they would also price it at rediculous price unless they could do tons of them at low production cost (unlikely?)

also, if we indeed end up having new cards being 5% faster and saving 15watts it would be good for me cause i'd be able to keep my 7970 for a long time, thus making it a good buy :D
They do. It's called a HD7990.

It would be strange if this turns up to be true. NVIDIA just released the 650Ti Boost, that is slowly trickling down to markets. I've only seen the Boost in my country for the last couple of days. I believe Nvidia usually starts with the low end and after some months launches the high end, making the 650 replacement imminent. So it would not make sense to launch the 650 Ti Boost only to replace it in a month.

If the low end -> high end scheme is only determined by the chip yields then the Kepler yield is as stable for the low end as it is for the high end, and holding back the 650 replacement would be strange.

What would be nice to see, if this is true, is performance going up, as the article states, and the price point for the x50, x60, x70, x80 categories to be the same. And that also would be strange in regards to the 650 Ti Boost as they would massively angry they're customers.

I really don't see how Nvidia could make any move at this point without upsetting the 650 Ti Boost customers. Guess the only option would be to increase prices, but that is impossible with the performance per $ AMD gives.

I don't say that Nvidia is not willing to sacrifice customer satisfaction, i only point out the result of their presumed actions.

It was expected that Titan LE would be the GTX 780, there won't be any major architectural changes until Maxwell is released sometime next year.

GK110 with 13 blocks out of 15 enabled and 5GBs of VRAM, should pack quite a punch, over 80% of Titan's performance depending on clocks at half the price, not bad at all.

it might make your 7970 a great buy, and it seems like it is a good buy today regardless, but would you enjoy seeing the next logical upgrade from 7970 to be $750. If the titan LE is the gtx780 and it's only on par with the 7970ghz edition, then we're in for quite a performance slump unless AMD is willing to drop the gauntlet down when there really isn't any business sense in doing so.

So GTX 780/Titan LE is gonna be 15-12% faster then 680. :wtf:

Not to mention the price :shadedshu

Kind of depressing. Just overclock your current 600 series cards and save the money if there is no architectual differences.
People will get far better compute performance from the GK110 chip that the GTX780 will have.

I for one will probably get a 2nd 680 and a 1440p monitor.

Yes, but most thought GK110 was going to be in the 680. The GK104 showed up in the 680 and aside from gaming the GF110 in the 580 was still adaquate and superior depending on what you were doing.

I hope thats not the case this time around and we dont get surprised with a GK204.

Financially it makes more sense for them to do a GK104-GK204 then to sell GK110 for volume sales of a 700 series line-up.

I too want a new monitor but I have my eye on the Samsung SC series which they been delaying for EVER!!! <Punch cute kitten in the thoat>

no expect it to come close to titan, because since its a geforce 7xx im sure dp will be disabled and clock speed will be higher than titan i would assume so gaming performance would be close to titan and atleast 20% faster than 680
though idk if they would/could clock it over 1000mhz, but 900+ is very likely

Well this all seems to be about right as far as how the 700's fair against the 600's.

You guys really didn't expect anything other than a refresh with a couple new features/tweaks did you? I didn't think so. I suggest waiting for maxwell if you currently own a 600/7000 series card before upgrading anything other than adding to a sli/crossfire setup. If your card is older gen, then it may be a good buy if the prices are right.

Also, sign the "no ultra" petition!
