GeForce GTX 580 - Coming this December
GeForce GTX 580 Details:
512 CUDA Cores (vs 480 Fermi)
128 Texture Unites (vs 64 Fermi)
512bit Memory Bus (vs 384bit Fermi)
ETA: December 2010
Source: Nvidia working on GF100 successor
Looks to be an interesting Q4 with the AMD's Radeon 59XX series coming in November, and then the dual GPU Cayman cards coming in December.
Basically what Fermi was supposed to be originally? :whistle:
THough I don't think the GF100 Core was a complete sucess, I don't think it was a failure either.
Realistically, even for the 200 series cards the 260 was the most popular. With all others fitting into their niche.
However I will honestly say that I'll believe this for both companies when I see it, and some proper testing.
Ok so a 700$ ( probably over ) card with a ( certainly ) noisy cooler to cool it and also dead rare because the succes rate of the chip will certainly be low? Compare to a 500$ GPU with near alf TDP...Seriously, this just sound like Nvidia have no idea how to get their card competitive.
Consider this...with AMD dominating the DX11 market, as well has having the design wins for the next generation consoles from Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo, nVidia isn't going to be able to peddle their proprietary CUDA and Physx technology that nobody wants. It's not that it's bad technology, but the industry prefers open standards. Nvidia's CEO is arrogant and it is catching up to them in a big hurry.
That being said, if the GTX 580 offers the best performance for the money, that's what I'm going to buy. If they keep up the current trend of charging a premium because they think CUDA and Physx holds some value, then AMD it is.
However if both come out a month or two apart , it will be interesting to see what comes of that.
And I wasn't talking about market just so you know. Markets and CEO's and the likes aren't of my concern nor something I can quantify in performance stats. I was talking about the actual Arcitecture itself.
Put the market percentages in perspective, please. Are we talking about 'number of GPUs in computers' as an identifying factor of success? I guess AMD and nVidia both fail then :sad:
Statistics can be easily skewed in any direction with a little rubbing and nudging of words and numbers.
Back on track, this really just looks like a full die GF100 core, maybe with some minor tweaks to help power and performance? Should still be an interesting part.
Myself, I'm still waiting to see the GTX475 full die GF104. Even the full die GF106 should be something to behold. Of course that being said the next gen cards are probably only 6-12 months out from being released once the full die current gen cards hit the market......
After numerous conversations with NVIDIA over the last few weeks allow me to say one thing about this "news":
:haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha:
:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
you guys want me to rerepeat myself on the matter? :)
ill believe it once i see it reviewed for frog's sake
