I've read about Nvidia's 28 and 22nm "Maxwell" and "Kepler" cards, which allegedly offer 5-10 times the performance of the Fermi cards, but is there any information about the release dates of these graphics cards? What does ATI have slated for 2012 and so forth? I thought ATI was planning a 28nm "Northern Island" Radeon HD 7xxx series for 2012, along with PCIe 3.0 for the new AMD "Bulldozer" and Intel "Ivy Bridge" processors and chipsets?
5-10 times the performance of Fermi is insane! A single Maxwell or Kepler card could run Crysis at very high/enthusiast 2560x1600 with 32x MSAA and get 60 fps!
^ Maxwell will use 22nm's and Kepler will use 28nm's, and it's not 100% faster than GTX 590 cause 100%=1= 1x faster = makes no sence, so i believe you meant 200%, would sound more logical, and Core i7 is actually 2-3 times faster than q6600 *depends on model*
what do you think how much the first 28nm cards will cost?
