Rumor: Nvidia Launching 700 Series in June

Fudzilla is pushing around a rumor that Nvidia might be launching the GeForce 700 series dedicated graphics cards starting Computex 2013, which will run from the 4th through 8th of June.

It also appears that the cards would still be based on the 28 nm Kepler architecture, although perhaps a slightly revised version of such.

Earlier we heard of both AMD and Nvidia delaying the release of any new graphics cards, and therefore we are doubtful of the accuracy of this report. The latest rumors before the current point towards a Q4 2013 / Q1 2014 release.

That said, this could also point to the release of a cut-down GK110 chip, perhaps the release of the rumored Titan LE. Regardless, Computex 2013 is going to be an interesting event.

The rumor report reads, "They do want to address AMD’s aggressive bundle push and try to offer a more competitive product. Bear in mind that desktop sales still play an important role in Nvidia's financial statement. We don’t know much about the performance expectation but we do know that it is faster than what is out today."

    The sound of two pennies going into my Nvidia piggy bank... Just 49998 to go... (it better not be more or team red will have my consideration again).

    AMD or Intel, just please, take my money. I've been having my gpu for 3 years now and I'm waiting for next gen to upgrade.

    Improving compute performance should be one of their main priorities.

  • Hoping to get a 770 when this is released, providing the price isnt too much, the 670 can be had for £300 so I'm hoping to pick one up for £350 at most, with overclock if possible :D

    How reliable is the source?

    Not very likely... There is very little room to improve with 28nm technology. But AMD did 7790 and that is actually 8xxx technology with old 28 nm production technology, so this is possible, but it is hard to see why Nvidia would do it.
    But if they do then AMD allso have to react, so maybe this is a good thing. What I am afraid is that we will get even more expensive GPU:s in near future...

    When higher resolution monitors become cheaper, or more demanding games are released (hopefully soon after the new consoles later this year), then I will care. Until then, I am happy that my current card has lasted as long as it has and that the era of having to buy a new video card every few months just to play new releases at decent settings is over.
