Folding does not currently work on Kepler. There should be an update by Stanford in the next few weeks that supports the new architecture.

Me to. I did notice that the 560Ti2WIN on sale now at $400. Mine is currently getting 36k ppd. I would love to see a 6602WIN, if they make one it should hopefully use a little less power.

And the awesome part about that is, they have something even more powerful they can bring for the ultimate Premium. A'la ULTRA days.

Which means there is a higher-end single-GPU in their works right now?

Default This one goes to Green Team

Yep, qudos to Green Team. They beat 7970 on all counts. Looks like anything AMD touches turns into Bulldozer - slow and inefficient. I guess it was strategic mistake by AMD executives to get compute power in GCN. NVIDIA moved away from it and results are showing: 680 is cheaper, faster and cooler. So, AMD has to drop 7970 to $450 and 7950 to $350 to stay competitive. That will push 78xx and 77xx further down.
Now, everyone who bought in AMD 28nm parts are sour (me included). AMD got money, but going to lose market share. Short term profits for long term loses - typical AMD management style. I have stopped buying their CPUs few years ago, I guess I have to abandon their GPUs just the same.
