Nvidia Kepler schedule revealed

Written by Fuad Abazovic



A quarter behind AMD


We are still missing a lot of details, but according to the current schedule it looks like GK110, Nvidia’s Kepler high end card, which should up with the Geforce GT 680 brand comes in April.

A chip called GK107, a much slower version of the same 28nm core, will show up in May, while the sexy performance market sweet spot part codenamed GK106 is planned for June. We still have no info when the most affordable part of this gang, codenamed GK108, comes to market.

Mobile parts should follow a different launch dynamic and we expect more than just one card in April. It looks like Nvidia wants to make a name in desktop with high-end parts and that mobile GPUs will have a much wider spectrum, simply because Nvidia has some 300+ design wins in the mobile segment and that they can make nice money off it.

April for the 680. Where did you get June from?

AMD has released only their high end at the moment.

I just want to see some benchmarks already, so I know if I should pick up the HD7970 or wait a few months and pick up the GTX680. I think most of the people are asking themselves this question.

I think it shouldn't matter. Kepler might well be a bit faster but AMD of course will drop the price of HD7970 accordingly. So in the end, AMD still has better price-performance-watt figures.

After I had one of these Bumpgate nVidia chips in one of my laptop and the chip actually blew up after just above 2 years it is never ever nVidia again when it comes to mobile parts

Just a smart guess, tbh. Look at buldozer's overpriced current state. You never know if they will drop the price or not ;)

The HD7970's are still freaking expensive to make, keep that in mind :D

Intersting? Personally, I don't care about this price-versus-performance stuff. All i want is the most powerful card this year to replace my ageing HD4870. I'd love it more if it came with NO stupid heat and noise issues too. But price? Nah, that won't put me off from buying their latest Mega Beast direct from Satan's own design room. Lol.

Love how this Nvidia delay is soooo news worthy. People seem to quickly forget that for the past few generations Nvidia have launched later than AMD and always turned out to be the same or a bit faster. But of course reporting 'Nvidia standard card launch for next gen' would not be very news worthy. News would be if they were launching as late as they did with Fermi where they gave AMD about 6 months unopposed.

yep all my mates decided to go for the nVidia 8000 series mobile chips. guess what? they all broke. and there are people who still think nvida mobile gpu's are still good? compared to AMD/ATI ones they where terrible, but that was mainly due to the fact that the AMD chips could be easily ported over to the mobile sector, and monlithic designs are quite hard to do on mobile.

congradualtions you are the 1% of the market that does this, every1 else does the price to performance thing.

People want to compare the HD7970 to the GTX680, nothing wrong with that, they want to see if they can get the best performance for their buck.
