Will the HD 8xxx and GTX 7xx graphics cards be released in 2013 or 2014?

Are there any technical details available about these cards? Are they a completely new architecture or just a highly revised and improved version of the current architecture?

Updated architecture i believe and it should be in 2013..Everybody got to eat i dont see why they would miss 2013 but its going to be exciting when both series drop

So a highly revised and improved version of the current GTX 6xx an HD 7xxx and not entirely new architectures?

Much like the HD 6970 was an improved HD 5870?

Right. the next NVIDIA Architecture may not come until 2014 and lucky if you see it in 2014

Yeah Maxwell (2014) is supposed to be the huge one. But of course actual performance gains depend on what nVidia do with their new architecture. Look at the GTX600 series and there was clearly much more high-end potential, but would have been hot, power-hungry and expensive. Based on improvements in previous generations, we're probably looking at some decent gains though.

Will Maxwell be 22nm?
