Basically no hope fore 7 series desktop Parts till 2014 boys and girls. :censored::dots:

Toms Hardware says so

I'm saving fore Titan now fore sure.

Not surprised, NVIDIA basically owns the market currently IMO. And ATI/AMD had already said they had no new parts due for this year.

Disappointing to say the least.

I am actually okay with this. I'd rather they refine their lineup (maybe come out with an X2 version of their vaunted 660/660TI) or give a bit of a refresh on current than have 7XX come.

We have powerful enough GPU's as it stands (IMO).

It will also make the prices of both new and used cards stable for a couple months instead of taking a dive.

Not a bad thing.

The only thing people can look forward to is potential price shuffling as amd sorts into nvidia's midrange offerings. There really hasn't been much performance increase per dollar in the $100-$125 range since gtx 460 bottomed out in price.

With summer coming it would be abnormal to have a new release anyways, this really is not news.

I'm with ST on this one. It is nice to not have a 12 month refresh (aka rebranding) on current models, and instead wait for new architectures. Let me be the first to say that 18-24 month product cycles are not a bad thing!

They've been doing rebranding on their mobile chips to sync up with product cycles of laptop OEMs who want to update the GPU specs at the same time as everything else, but their standalone GPUs seem more resistant to this.

Just because the GTX 700-series won't be released doesn't mean that the summer will be devoid of releases. Between now and July, we will see a constant string of new cards from both AMD and NVIDIA.

This one boils down to typical sensationalist article bullshit IMO.
