Hello everyone, I have an asus sabertooth 990FX motherboard and 1090t processor.
My graphic card is single GTX 560ti and I wanted to buy another to finaly have a sli on Amd platform, but then I noticed that nvidia is preparing a new generation of graphic cards mede in 28 nm process codenamed "kepler" and they say that this card are going to be much faster than current ones and that doesnt make me so sure about making 560ti sli anymore.

And here is what i want to know: do enyone knows when those cards will come out ?
Somebody says they will come in less than 60 days , some say they will be "chrismas gifts" and other sometime next year.
I want to know that because if they are near i wont buy another 560 but if tyer are a year away i will buy 560ti.

PS: And plese dont say hat my processor will bottleneck sli because despide being hexacore i know that it probably bottleneck single GTX 560ti so I am planing to buy bulldozer in december.

Just get another 560 Ti and your good to go for a few years. Kepler isn't a huge improvement in terms of gaming over a high-end GTX 500 series card such as yours (about a 10 to 20 percent increase; you can wait out on it). Kepler was originally planned for this year, but was pushed back to next year (I believe either Q1 or Q2 of 2012).

Correct. Nvidia has stated it won't be out this year. Q1 is possible, but I'm sure it will be a lot closer to Q2. As far as I've heard it isn't supposed to be a major redesign so expect more Fermi with more "cuda cores".

And hopeful less heat and noise, though that was more of an issue with the GTX 400 series (Thermi as they called it).

If this is true I will get another 560ti. When I see this picture i think that kepler i going to be a monster.

If that was pure performance maybe. But seeing as its per watt, you can get that chart just by decreasing the power used. Performance could stay the same.

since my "mission" is to build a system that can run crysis on 1080p at 6fps stable i will yust go for another 560ti then. i want to achive this because after that i dont plan to invest no more mom+ney into computer for atleast 2 years and if i get crysis at 60 fps that will probably last for two years.

While I'm sure there will be changes, I'm also sure you will be looking at chips not unlike the GF100/110. From the "high level view" they will look like the 480/580, just with more clusters. Maxwell might introduce a true new Arch, but I don't think Kepler will. No way to know however until the chips launch.

That road map doesn't depict raw performance. Performance boost compared to a high-end GTX 500 GPU won't be much, or at least not worth an upgrade for.

I always buy the best of middle class 6600gt, 8800gt, GTX 260, and now 560ti, but those card were always beaten 1,5 year after release and now if I add another 560ti i will outperform 580 in most cases, I am yust wanted to be be sure that this is enouf for a save foture.
