Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang Emails Thanks to Employees

In an email shared with AnandTech, the CEO of Nvidia took the time out of his busy day to thank the employees for their efforts over the past three years to bring Kepler to the "shelves around the world!". It reads:

----Original Message----- From: Jensen H Huang Sent: Thursday, March 22, 2012 9:48 AM To: Employees Subject: Kepler Rising Today, the first Kepler - GTX 680 - is on shelves around the world! Three years in the making. The endeavor of a thousand of the world's best engineers. One vision - build a revolutionary GPU and make a giant leap in efficient-performance. Achieving efficient-performance, great performance while consuming the least possible energy, required us to change our entire design approach. Close collaboration between architecture-design-VLSI-software-devtech-systems, intense scrutiny on where energy is spent, and inventions at every level were necessary. The results are fantastic as you will see in the reviews. Kepler also cultivated a passion for craftsmanship - nothing wasted, everything put together with care - with a goal of creating an exquisite product that works wonderfully. Let's continue to raise the bar and establish extraordinary craftsmanship as a hallmark of our company. Today is just the beginning of Kepler. Because of its super energy-efficient architecture, we will extend GPUs into datacenters, to super thin notebooks, to superphones. Not to mention bring joy and delight to millions of gamers around the world. I want to thank all that gave your heart and soul to create Kepler. You've created something wonderful. Congratulations everyone!Jensen

To quote Chris Angelini, the "GeForce GTX 680 is now the fastest single-GPU graphics card, and not by a margin that leaves room to hem or haw. Making matters worse for AMD, the GTX 680 is priced right between its Radeon HD 7970 and 7950. Providing that Nvidia’s launch price sticks, both Radeon HD 7900s need to be significantly less expensive in order to compete." Read our full GTX 680 review here.

    Price reduction's will come. Also for the people that will argue that when overclocked they perform similarly, remember. Not everyone is willing to OC there video cards. Also wait till EGVA debuts there Classified with the 14 Phase PWM, and it OC's like a beast! :D Can't wait.

    theconsolegamer"GeForce GTX 680 is now the fastest single-GPU graphics card, and not by a margin that leaves room to hem or haw" This is BS. Chris Angelini's a beast but like almost any other reviewer out there he let the Radeon at stock while the GTX 680 autoclocks itself. The 7970 and the GTX 680 are equally fast, they trade blows across the board and none can be called faster, period. Misleading review is misleading. He was talking power consumption to bits per second ratio. There isnt any other card out there that gives this amount of power per watt.
