IF something that major was heavily rumored and/or leaked/announced, I would think it would be in the Kepler thread. I check it every day and there's been no news lately. So I wouldn't take that as official or anything as of that point.
Agreed, a 570 SLI setup beats a 580 any day, but power usage. a 580 is gonna use less power. but the performance a 570 is the best u listed. I was gonna say Kepler when its out but as jyjjy said the pricing may be all off the chart and mixed, you may be paying 499 for a GTX 660 and 1500 for the dual GPU monster thats at the end of every series
A pair of GTX 560 Ti's will cost about $400 right now and will dominate any of the more expensive options listed so far (except a pair of GTX 570's in SLI). If you can wait, the GTX 670 Ti is supposed to come out some time in March and the picture should get a little more clear.
you should do some research. seems every time I write something you have something negative to say about it.
No, you should do some research and think a little bit. Look at current card prices and performance. A card better than the GTX 580 for $250 would be a radical shift in pricing on a level I don't recall ever seeing. AMD has already released their GTX 580 equivalent for the current generation and has priced it at $450. It wouldn't even make sense for Nvidia to throw away so much money considering they would easily outsell AMD at $150 more than you are suggesting. I don't believe Nvidia just suddenly turned really stupid. Any rumor you have read that fails such a basic believability test is not something you should be repeating.
as for everyone talking about the new 600 series, i sure hope all your are right, but your just going about peoples thoughts and posts on them. I am not believing anything about them until i see a real release about them
I would expect the GTX 660 to sell for about $250. If it is faster than a GTX 580 as well though that would be nuts. Either the price or more likely the performance level must be wrong. If not it would have to be a part of some strategy by Nvidia to sacrifice short term profit in an attempt to drive AMD out of the market altogether.
Agree with jyjjy, if a $250 card comes in the performance of 580, it's going to be totally nuts. Great, but chance are too low. I think the rumor is misleading an comes from a nVidia fanboy . If nVidia do so though, they will be killing themself because they are going to loss to much.
