If that was real, Wow pushing 120fps in BF3 is impressive. Now if they would only use the fps from multiplayer and not the campaign...

I bet it would take a human many many many many minutes to try to fake a chart like that.
</sarcasm off>

Those numbers look a bit too good to be true 2me.

sigh... there is NO WAY the non-existant 790 is gonna top their 590 by that much. @ 2500x1600--Ultra no less. Never in their history have they run over their own cards by that much.
They would have to name those cards the Nvidia Peltiers. If anything the non-existant 785 will be slightly lower than the current 590.
Maybe when they get the Nucle 2000watt Nvidia PSU that is Peltier ready. And figure out how to remove 1000watts of thermal Nvidia Nueclousus and visions of grandure. Then perhaps we'll see a green panted drywall screwed sanded down 2x4 heat sink block of wood with a 790 sticker on the side glued to a 10 inch PCB.

Perhaps if wood was considered condensed paper it could be just slightly better than a paper launch?

I wish I could and should believe these charts... but I'm not. Not for a moment. A 100% jump in performance is possible (remember 4870-5870) but it's obvious that the charts are fake.
As others have mentioned, I count only on SKY's (and other couple of reviewers for that matter) numbers.
What I really what to know now are the launch dates...

Dunno if that's strictly true even for nvidia, Geforce to Geforce 2 was double or better, Geforce 3 to geforce 4 was better than double, 8800 was a huge leap over the 7800, but yeah, 1.5x better or less seems to be the status quo now.

I would say you will get something that is competitive with AMD's latest. Maybe a little faster (ie. 3-5%), with a corresponding power increase.

I will believe it when I see it. These charts look way to good to be true. Why would they make one card a GTR 785 what's with that.
When the cards do come out then that's when the true performance will show. Until then we will have to wait and see.....

NVIDIA has used GT, GTS, GTX etc in the past. These are racing prefixes. GTX is top end. So maybe GTR is super high end like in racing..McLaren F1 GTR, Mercedes CLK-GTR etc....

I got a question....

Who really needs more power right now? If you need more just get a second GPU. If you already have dual GPU's you are set. Games just aren't pushing graphics like they used to.

Triple monitors, 2560x1600, 3d, micro stutter, etc...

I can see top end Kepler besting a 590 by a good margin.

Also, what if the chart IS legit but not for Kepler release but Kepler revised like 5xx is 4xx fermi revised?
