Yea. I have a amd athlon 2 x4 and I'm wating for ivy bridge. I'm planning on having $1000 to upgrade CPU,GPU, and motherboard. So if the motherboard cost around $250 and processor does too I'll have $500 left to get something nice. I saw a few places that said there would be a larger range of cards (like 640, 685...) so that will be interesting to see.
Wait, didn't gtx680 use the GK104 core? And that was leading to speculation about something even more powerful on the way (besides the dual-gpu one)?
I >THINK< it uses the GK114 or something like that... I'm waiting for the rest of the cards to come out. Sure would be nice if there are more cards besides the 690 in the 600 series that could outperform the 680.
