More about release
  1. Don't know...time to probe around I guess. I'm personally hoping that a GTX 660 or GTX 650 kicks around in the performance range of the 6850 with less wattage and about the same price...maybe it's a pipe dream.
  2. I wanna grab a 560 TI lol... but waiting for the prices to drop... post back here if you find out any info on the 6xx series release schedule ;)

    according to this:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Nvidia-Kepler-GPU-GeForce-600-Series,14642.html

    the 660 is equal to the 580.

    but i dont know how reliable that is as the gtx 680 is $500 not $649 and it was already released, not on april 12th

    I think that the 680 they released is actually the 670.

    I agree...it wouldn't suprise me if they came out with a 690 or 685 before they hit the 780. I'll have to look into the 660 and 650. I can't afford the flagship GPUs. So for me the best bang for the buck in the $100 to $150 is best. So I'm hoping a 100w-120w GTX650 would be a better alternative to the HD 6850 that's $119 after rebate. Otherwise it's tough to beat.

    that wouldnt surprise me... but it was still supposed to be released April 12th.
  7. well, the gpu in the gtx 680 is the gk-104, but the "110" is normally the top single gpu example, not the "104" or what ever. Nvidia has a developers conference coming up on the 16th of may, stay tuned, also they are going to talk about their new 7 billion transistor gpu.

    the gtx680 (gk-104) has 3.5billion transistors, so does the new card use 2 of these current chips equalling 7billion transistors making it a gtx690 they are releasing, or are they breaking from their release formula of the last few years and releasing a standalone beast to sit ahead of the gtx680 and below the (for the purposes of this post) gtx690! ... we shall see.

    hope this info helps in any way :pt1cable:
