My System Specs

Default

I don't think the GK104 was supposed to be the top chip ,but it came out so good and fast and was faster then AMD HD-7970 when it came out .Nvidia has no reason to make the top dog chip with a 384 bit-buss and extra shaders,since ATI/AMD had nothing to counter the GTX-680,It was plenty fast enough and a lot more effcient.Plus there are already so many fast chips out that will play most games just fine.Now they came make it for next year and call it a GTX-780 amd sell it for $599.I do hope they double the memory to 4gigs,even if not really needed in most games.I would really like to see AMD knock one out of the park.Makeing it more efficient with there HD-8970 .I would like to see it be around 20% faster then the new GTX-780 so maybe the prices would go down.But I doubt that will happen since the Kepler chip is so good.
