Next gen GPU's from ATI and Nvidia?

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, :o  :o  :o  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!

Don't expect 5-10x the performance either. More realistically, I'd guess 1.5x or so. 2x is possible, but unlikely.

Still less power consumption and better performance hopefully in the low end cards.
I'd like to upgrade my 5570 without buying a new PSU

performance will be more likely 1.5-3 times better, Maxwell comes out 2013 so pretty long to wait ...

I agree dont get exited just yet, its all PR rubish doing the rounds so far.

I'm not so sure. AMD has had a lead for a bit, so I wouldn't be surprised to see their cards by the end of the year if TSMC doesn't hit any snags.

impossible to be 10 time faster . Just compare it to CPU sandy bride Core I7 vs Q6600 65 nm. Sandy bridy is not even 5x fasster( probably only 2 time).

Currently gpu use 40 NM, Maxwell use 28 NM. I would say will be only 1.5x to 2x performance increase.

So CPU from 65nm to 32 nm = 2x to 2.5x
Currently GPU 40 NM to 28 NM = ? ??? probably 1.5x for sure meaning 150 % faster than GTX 580 ,maybe 100% faster GTX 590

^ 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?
