Nvidia Kepler 28nm samples in house

Written by Fuad Abazovic



On track, official


AMD Southern Islands series GPUs, including Tahiti and some other exotic names are about to show their face in the second week of January and if all goes well we should see Radeon HD 7000 generation cards by January 10th.

Naturally we wanted to ask Nvidia what is going on with its 28nm graphics generation codenamed Kepler. We were positively surprised that Senior Product PR Manager at Nvidia, Igor Stanek has decided to confirm that Nvidia is on schedule with its Kepler roadmap.

He said: “We are on track with our Kepler roadmap. We have 28nm silicon in house now. Our transition to 28nm is going better than 40nm, and yields are better than our original plan.”

Nvidia didn’t go into any specifics defining “on track” and when we will see the actual cards, but we can only hope that by Q2 2012 something should be out in the wild. We will probably know more at CES 2012 in the early days of January and it can also happen that Kepler comes much close to Radeon HD 7000 than many believe.

However, it’s certain that Radeon HD 7000 will first 28nm graphics product to market.

Notice that nVidia PR said 28nm silicon is in house, not Kepler. I'd like to know what roadmap nVidia is looking at when they say they are on track.

Considering the evasion here, I'd tend to think that this PR statement confirms that nVidia is going to have a really slow start with Kepler with the top gun not coming out until this time next year.

Did you even read the headline?
nVIDIA Kepler 28nm samples in house


Do you know what a quote is?
He said: “We are on track with our Kepler roadmap. We have 28nm silicon in house now. Our transition to 28nm is going better than 40nm, and yields are better than our original plan.”

He was obviously asked about Kepler, not some secret project no one has heard of.
Sheesh. Why do you even bother to come here with your bullshit predictions?

I put in bold what should be completely obvious since you missed it.


And you don't see the evasion there? Did PR say Kepler is in house? No, they didn't. This is typical nvidia PR and you're obviously not used to seeing through it yet.

No, but we do see a fanboi trying to read more into what was actually said fueled by his own anti-brand FUD.

Remember your comment when the first Kepler product launches in mid-May. You know, the really small chip, GK107.

On track on 2012/Q2. That's a long track. In the meanwhile HD7000 has destroyed all the existing gayforces.
