Unlike launching a new architecture inot the high-end segment, NVIDIA is set to release the followup to Kepler called Maxwell in the mainstream space in the current Series 700 lineup, it in fact it is...

Supposed to be on the 28nm as well, the 20nm won't be used until the big guns.

I think they are doing that because they want to keep selling high end keplers for the time being without giving them massive pricecuts that might happen if the release higher end maxwells

I guess the mid and high end cards will start to come out this summer, maybe later for super high end. I just want to see a card that is above 780Ti in terms of horsepower but with more vram and I'm sold. Also, I'll have more time to save up for a couple when they come out.

I want them to come later too as I want them to work properly and not have the odd growing pains that 28nm had.

Top end Kepler from GTX 770 to 780ti are the best cards u can buy, there is zero reason for nvidia to pumo GM110 even if they want to.

They need to always be releasing bigger and better cards. It's always been that way. I'm over Kepler. Bring out the 880 already. Once mantle comes out AMD is going to beat up nvidia leaving them with black eyes and a fat lip. Enough fluff nvidia. Bring out the line up so I can pull the trigger and see what maxwells all about!

nvidia will respond to mantle if it turns out any good, i sure nvidia don't sit and watch the same old movie. there is no need for nvidia to hurry up for big Maxwell, ye i do wanna see it NOW but there is just no need. later on

Nvidia have been doing low level API stuff for years and years, I just don't see how Mantle will be a game changer.. the consoles wont use it and why would they use it on PC where most people have Nvidia cards?

The idea behind mantle is cool.. writing directly to the gpu.. but nvidia has gsync and rids gamers of page tearing.. nvidia could bomb maxwell (like thats gonna happen lmao) and still **** all over amd... gtx 880 could get 25 fps in all games and still run smooth with out input lag and page teareing when using gsync. Unless they make gsync available to amd its pointless to buy amd cards... its all about experience and what we view while we are gaming... if you dont buy a gsync monitor your experience is gonna be so much worse.. 60hz is garbage and 144hz still has some tearing, the answer is gsync all the way...

Because Mantle is what the devs want....and it's not proprietary. NVidia will be able to use Mantle as well, if they decide to support it.

The consoles are AMD based....which means all the console ports will initially be optimized for AMD's GCN. Would be stupid of game developers to optimize for GCN on the consoles, then dump those optimizations for the PC ports. Consoles don't need Mantle since they can be coded "direct to metal" where needed.... Mantle is only a "close to metal" API.

Not really.
Maybe lesser input lag, but tearing will persist.

At that low of an fps, G-Sync support depends on the monitor's minimum refresh rate, which I doubt many of them will have it lower than 30Hz.
G-Sync won't be effective at 25fps if the monitor can only support 30Hz and up.
Tearing will still be there in that case since the monitor won't go any lower than 30Hz to match the fps.

Just like amd/ati have... This is the first time since forever anyone has brought out a proper close to metal API...

I cannot wait for performance info/reviews of a Maxwell gpu. I would love to see what the architecture can do. Even if its of "mid" range ones since the consensus it they will be released first.

Also I cannot wait to see a definite Mantle review or benchmark/results other than from AMD or whatever and besides BF4.

Everyone is going bonkers about, saying its the next best thing and defending it with a "Patronus Charm" while no one has ever used it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

E.g: "That car is the best car ever! They said 0-60: 2sec, 200mph and 500MPG!"

But its not even released yet and no one has even driven/drive test it yet!!

"Yeah but the company showed it and they drove it very briefly on a controlled environment of theirs!"

Oh ok. I will wait until its been released and people drive test it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Not bashing anyone here btw. But does anyone wonder why Mantle it went so quite the last couple months? Where are some charts? Some performance info? Its not like its a secret or a GPU release under NDA or something.

Maybe AMD saw that people are OVER-hyping it and they will be disappointed if Mantle isn't what people are expecting because of the hype. I seriously hope AMD can deliver and is indeed an amazing step with that lower level, closer to the metal API.

I would love to see it and what it can do and if its that good I will go bonkers too about it. Until then I would advice all those that do the above to chill down and stop letting the PR guys messing with their heads.

But, I guess the PR guys are really doing a good job.
