Come on. These are only names!

Last generation: GF100, GF104, GF106. This was followed by GF110, GF114, etc.

It only makes sense that this generation would start with GK100, GK104, GK106.


The only place anyone got the GK110 name from was a bunch of rumor sites in the first place!

I have been running SLi for years and TBH it is time for a change. Currently I am running 570 SLi and IMO a GTX680 is not really a step up other than a larger frame buffer and a few new features. So again, what is known about GK110, when will it arrive, will it be a GTX 6XX card?
raw performance the 680 is a step down from SLI 570, but for every other possible reason I'm loving my 680 more than my SLI 570 :D

When I get my card I could test it. Whenever it comes in going to have a bunch of stuff to sell.

Well I am making the smart decision to buy 2 670's and cancel my order for the 690

Ah well I decided to keep my place in que because I read that the 670's is only close in performance because of lack of driver optimization. So I will keep my place in que and wait and see.

Que? Why not just grab one direct from EVGA?
