    Things are not looking good according to Kyle@Hardocp who has said that we won`t see GT300 in retail in following 4-6 months.

    Maybe it's the cause of spreading these GPGPU slides... I have no idea what's nVidias' current strategy.

    A 512b sku down to 384b makes sense only from a (lower cost) PCB perspective I guess. But I still dont understand how that helps Nvidia make it to the market quicker than the 512b sku? The highest priority right now is time to market, performance I'm guessing should be there unless something went horribly wrong.

    Good enough doesnt really sound good to be honest. R520 came three months later with a 10-15% boost, which quite simply was not enough.

    Which would theoritically quite a leap from Cypress, granted but I recall AMD having a similar advantage current generation and yet it didnt pay off. I dont think this is anywhere as critical to boost the sales if the gaming perf isnt there.

    How about the average of the two? 500mm2. :razz:

    Wasnt this faked by some user who later owned up to it?

    Link please? Next up Kyle would have got this information from a faulty translator. :razz:

    Ooooh, I like those kind. Feel free to PM them to me. ;)

    Got a link? Not that I doubt you, I just hate hunting for it. :???:

    CUDA isn't an non-existent market, it's just a hella lot smaller than the gaming market. ;)

    OMG, sorry for the topic combo breaker...but at one of the links from one of these posts I found this in the thread (and the original poster linked/quoted Arty which I really loved):

    Anyone know any female nVidia reps? I don't off hand.

    Thanks for the [H] links guys, gonna go check them now and try and figure out if nVidia is holding some killer cards in their hand or bluffing themselves into a hole. :???:

    Webcasts! Nice, didn't expect that.

    NDA slides for a card launching in 6 months? That's a long time to keep a secret :lol:

    GPGPU related. Nothing about 3D performance or architecture. Seems nVidia want to convince us, that the product is more MORE MORE than only a gaming accelerator. I expect it shall create WOW effect and (together with the number of SPs) convince customers to wait.

    Are you ready? :smile:

    Too bad about the lack of arch details. Still, I'm thinking b3d should probably raise the limit on the number of people that a PM can be sent to simultaneously.

    anytime no-X :D

    My entire computer is very little more than a gaming accelerator ... hell if we ignore FaH&Co for a moment gaming is probably the only thing which stresses the computer for 99% of us.

    I would love to, but sorry don't have access to said slides. I know I just broke your heart.
    You mean Nvidia has been holding back until now?

    They've been holding back on DX10.1, 40 nm and GDDR5 at least :)

    As I said Lord knows where that one came from. I'd be even willing to believe that someone couldn't find any other reasonable explanation for the infamous GTX280 1.5GB that appeared in some weird roadmaps.

    Since none of us knows where it's performance ballpark lies it doesn't help coming up with any percentages either.

    Why didn't it pay off for AMD exactly? I don't follow market shares that often but I recall at some point reading that AMD's share there grew in one quarter from 8% to 12%. And before the dreaded "so what" remark comes along that's a 50% increase in market share in a low volume ultra high margin market.

    That's the sad reality that the truth usually lies in the middle. Take neliz's prediction that it'll be by only 20% than X as worst case scenario and NV's own bullshit exaggerations stir them slightly and there you have your coffee coloured performance estimate :lol:

    Are you hinting that GTX 380 boards will be brown? HURRAH!

    Now if it could only smell like coffee :(

    we just have to wait a few more weeks to get the first pics and numbers out.
