  • All About NVIDIA Kepler

    AMD's latest graphics cards are already hitting the street, but Nvidia's high end GPUs are nowhere to be seen. Late last year, we heard rumors that Nvidia's GK104 "Kepler" graphics cards may be delayed to an early summer or late spring launch. If the latest rumors reported by Maximum PC hold true; however, Nvidia's Kepler cards' release may be leaning more towards a late spring launch instead of an early summer window.
    They report that sources from Chinese website ChipHell.com have indicated that Nvidia's new high end GTX 680 graphics cards may be released as soon as February 2012. This is a relatively big push forwards compared to the previously rumored March or April launch window, and is likely being accelerated in response to AMD's successful launch of their GCN (Graphics Core Next) based Radeon 7970 graphics cards. Although we do not know much about the upcoming cards, the general consensus is that the GTX 680 cards will have 2 GB of video memory on a 256-bit bus. Further, the Kepler cards' core will run at 780 MHz, and the GK104 cards will have TDP (thermal design power) ratings of 225 Watts.
    That said, the GTX 680 is supposed to offer similar performance to AMD's Radeon HD 7970, currently the fastest single GPU videocard on the planet. The card's clockspeed is rumored to be 780MHz, and is said to have 2GB of memory. It will be the first card based on Nvidia's 28nm "Kepler" architecture.
    Whether the company will have actual hardware to sell or if it will be more of a "paper launch" remains to be seen. If I had to venture a guess, the cards will likely see limited availability in a late February launch but will not be around in significant quantities until later this year. With the delays caused by manufacturing the 28nm Kepler cards over at TSMC, the company is not likely to have all that big of a stockpile on hand.
    btw yang nyebarin isu ini si napoleoen dari chiphell yang udah terkenal reputasinya dalam membocorkan informasi2 yang akurat mengenai GPU
    and FYI this is not even the high end parts of kepler, yet still on par with 7970, katanya lho...

    Nvidia Kepler vs AMD GCN has a clear winner

    entah si charlie demerjian keselek apa, kali ini dia berpihak pada "team green"
    AMD had better hope that SemiAccurate lives up to their tongue in cheek name because according to their sources NVIDIA's new Kepler GPU line is going to be better than AMD at everything. The variety of negative rumours about Kepler are contradicted by the news that the A2 silicon has arrived, trouble free, at NVIDIA's door step so the early arrival of Kepler in May now seems reasonable.
    From the limited description we have it seems that NVIDIA's Achilles Heel, multi-monitor support on a single card is no longer a problem as there are two DVI plugs, a single HDMI, and a DisplayPort connector present. With all of those plugs it seems obvious the card is designed to handle NVIDIA Surround all by its lonesome. From the GDDR5 count the cards bandwidth of 256 bits and total memory size of 2GB is lesser than AMD's 384-bit, 3GB card but from the description at SemiAccurate that is not going to be enough to save AMD's biscuit.

    A lot of people have been asking about Kepler/GK104, and we finally have some hard information. Unfortunately, we can’t post it or certain classes of moles go extinct, but there are some things we can say.
    The short story is that Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) will win this round on just about every metric, some more than others. Look for late March or early April availability, with volumes being the major concern at first. GK104 cards seen by SemiAccurate all look very polished and complete, far from rough prototypes or “Puppies“. A2 silicon is now back from TSMC, and that will likely be the production stepping barring any last second hitches. Currently, there aren’t any.
    For the doubters, both of the current cards we saw have two DVI plugs on the bottom, one HDMI, and one DP with a half slot cooling grate on one of the two slot end plates. The chip is quite small, and has 8 GDDR5 chips meaning a 256-bit bus/2GB standard, and several other features we can’t talk about yet due to differences between the cards seen. These items won’t change the outcome though, Nvidia wins, handily.
    semakin menarik nih, buat yang mau beli vga mending tunggu dulu deh...
    soalnya dari yang ane baca GTX 680 lebih murah dari HD 7970, sekitar $499, who knows
    oia sori sebelumnya, ga ada maksud memancing flame war, cuma memberikan info aja...

      Gak pa2 bos ... ntar belinya juga yg pas di kantong pas di performa ... mana yg baek deh
      kl GTX 680 lebih murah dg performa yg sama (lebih joss ya lebih baek ) dengan HD 7970 knpa gak ... pa lg kl listriknya juga bersahabat

          Re: Nvidia Kepler vs AMD GCN has a clear winner

          ini nvidia make strategi yang sama dengan keluarga fermi,
          untuk generasi pertama, pake nomor yang lebih rendah "4xx", ini fermi versi cut down
          dan generasi selanjutnya pake nomor yang lebih tinggi "5xx", ini full version fermi
          di kepler
          untuk generasi pertama, pake nomor yang lebih rendah "6xx", ini kepler versi cut down
          dan generasi selanjutnya pake nomor yang lebih tinggi "7xx", ini full version kepler

          post di forum luar
          GK 104 will be enough to dethrone HD7970?! :O
          then what will GK100 a.k.a GTX780 will do wait there's also GTX770......hmmmm no wonnder why AMD was teasing with HD8000 series or HD7000 refresh
          jadi kepler yang full version bakalan nunggu "the next die shrink"...

            Wah kalo isu ini beneran serem juga yah gebrakan dari si hijau, GK104/GTX 660 performanya bisa setara ama GTX 580 pdhl HD 7970 cuma unggul sekitar 20% dari GTX 580, bijimane dgn kakak2nya GK104 ntar? bisa2 GTX 670 aja udah bisa melibas HD 7970 o_O

                  Nvidia: We Expected More from the Radeon HD 7900 Series




                  Okay .. Awkward .. AMD had a pretty good launch with the Radeon HD 7970, NVIDIA however isnít impressed with the performance of AMDís new graphics cards and believes that Kepler will have no problems in becoming the fastest GPU around.

                  For making that claim happene .. they do have to actually launch it though.
                  "Honestly, we expected more from our competitorís new architecture," said a high ranking Nvidia official during a meeting with Nordic Hardware. The official also revealed that before the launch of the Radeon HD 7970, its company came up with a series of performance estimates for the HD 7900 series that they were preparing to beat with Kepler.
                  The Radeon HD 7970 performance however came under these initial estimates, so Nvidia is now confident that its upcoming GPUs wonít have any problems in surpassing the HD 7900 series.
                  Although Nvidia seems quite confident in Kepler, the company still hasnít established a launch schedule for its 28nm GPU, a company spokesperson revealing only that Kepler will arrive in the ďfirst half of 2012.Ē
                  The same Nvidia representative hinted that the new architecture could launch by the end of March, although a Q2 release could also be a possibility.

                    klo emang bener2 spt yg bold= pasti bnyk diminati,
                    saat ini bukan hanya performa yg dikejar, hehee..., tp efisiensi jg.
                    TDL maw naik lg bo'.......

                      Ane gak usah yg high end dah, doyannya pengganti GTX 560Ti aja yaitu GTX 660, kalo harga kisaran 2-2.5jt langsung sikat hari pertama keluar dah, moga2 kisaran segitu dah harganya.
