    Seriously, why should i upgrade? Because you say so? I put my money where ever i want to. I make my judgement about the firm act and what is the best option for me. I love Fermi , i love the 3rd party tools but hate what is nvidia doing in the past 6 months. A company not gonna force me to do something what is against my will. Most users are thinking the same way, even they love the product/s , it is principle .

    Last time i checked Techpowerup isn't geforce.com or a subsidiary of nvidia


    though they seems to be more on top of things.

    Ending driver support maybe worse , but at least its not a lie.

    Last time I checked, you posted the link to Techpowerup to illustrate some point. Whoops.

    last time i checked i linked the GTX 580 in the highlighted geforce.com text

    and last time i checked i was pointing out that the gf117 is still being produced where it says production active in that sentence

    anyhow no point trying to derail thread further.

    That's exactly what I'll do, nvidia won't get any cent from me from now on. This 970 of mine will be the last green card for me.

    Hope polaris & vega really deliver this time.

    The idiocy in this is that you don't even demand support for things that were promised. At least AMD said from the beginning that DX12 was GCN only. NVIDIA released a bad driver for Fermi and you actually approve of that. That's pathetic.

    No, the idiocy is in a Radeon owner visiting a GeForce drivers section to teach us poor GeForce owners how to use our products while the company which made his card straight up stopped supporting anything older than 7800/7900 cards which were launched two years after the release of Fermi GPUs.

    And again, I very much prefer NV to spend the resources on the cards which actually matter. No, Fermi cards do not matter at this point of time in pretty much the same way as GTX8800 doesn't matter and Riva TNT doesn't matter. So I'm perfectly fine with no DX12 support for obsolete Fermi GPUs.

    Fermi GPUs have the same feature set as Kepler, they are not obsolete, in fact, a 580 has the same compute power 670, 760. In my opinion, the things is, Nvidia said that DX12 would have support on Fermi, and if they don't give us support as promised, it will probably have consequences. There is not such thing as "spend the resources" for developing the driver as you think, we paid for this, it's not a courtesy, look at Microsoft, they have to support Windows 7 users, some time ago even Windows XP users.

    Nvidia has claimed that Fermi users are less than 10% of their install base, as such there will be no Vulkan support - will this likely translate across to the DX12 API? Who knows, but it has been a long time since we have heard anything about a driver release target in terms of either driver branch or cut-off date...

    Fermi consists of approximately 135 products, the Quadro users should be the ones shouting loudest as they paid a premium for a product that is about to lose future support. Next in line are Fermi SLI users (such as myself) who are still using GTX580/570/560/480/470/465/460 without issue.

    Below is a list of Fermi products that are about to become obsolete;

    To run it on the new driver you need to install the Insider preview build as mentioned at the start of the post.

    apart from the well known hostility & fighting attitude of dr_rus towards anyone who has not "GTX > 980" written in their infobox there is another thing which is amusing about this decision to leave fermi on DX11 as well:

    notice the irony in denying those cards dx12/vulkan...
    because it's exactly those cards that would profit the most from it to achieve smooth framerates in the recent triple A titles and make them pretty playable.

    probably NVIDIA announced it for fermi while underestimating (or not knowing) its performance gains so they feared sales would drop => they silently backed out.

    AMD dropped 6000 series for the same reason. They got DX12 support then realized those cards would perform their tflop equivalents, putting them on par with GCN, so they killed support for the entire series.

    Or you know, we can just not fabricate stories for the sake of furthering our narrative.

    To me, there are two features that I want. I don't care about new lightning models, gameworks features, whatever, I just want DX12 for less CPU Overhead. Testing with API Overhead, I can't pass 1,200,000 score on DX11, while on DX12 I can achieve 3,400,000 easily, with just one card, and I have 2, and it is the other feature that I care about, other multi-gpu rendering better than AFR, their are calling this new DX12 feature "Explicit Multi-Adapter" with two modes, Linked and Unlinked GPUs.

    And even if the SLI thing can't be possible, I care the most about the overhead, and it I think that is already working, otherwise the beta driver won't be able to work. Anyway, I'm hoping something on the next weeks, with the release of the Redstone update for mainstream W10 builds, maybe Nvidia is waiting for this update, I don't know...

    1.) you say "AMD dropped 6000 for the same reason" & you say it's fabricated?
    how does that fit together?

    2.) AMD never dropped 6000, they just never announced that it would support DX12 API. so there was never anything to drop.

    these are the official AMD cards to support DX12 (status W10 insider Build 10041... thats now almost 2 years ago, source: http://www.amd.com/en-us/innovations/software-technologies/directx12 )

    Once you’ve installed Windows® 10 Technical Preview Build 10041 (or later) and obtained the latest driver from Windows Update, these AMD components are DirectX® 12-ready:
    AMD Radeon™ R9 Series graphics
    AMD Radeon™ R7 Series graphics
    AMD Radeon™ R5 240 graphics
    AMD Radeon™ HD 8000 Series graphics for OEM systems (HD 8570 and up)
    AMD Radeon™ HD 8000M Series graphics for notebooks
    AMD Radeon™ HD 7000 Series graphics (HD 7730 and up)
    AMD Radeon™ HD 7000M Series graphics for notebooks (HD 7730M and up)
    AMD A4/A6/A8/A10-7000 Series APUs (codenamed “Kaveri”)
    AMD A6/A8/A10 PRO-7000 Series APUs (codenamed “Kaveri”)
    AMD E1/A4/A10 Micro-6000 Series APUs (codenamed “Mullins”)
    AMD E1/E2/A4/A6/A8-6000 Series APUs (codenamed “Beema”)
    Nvidia in contrary announced DX12 API support for Fermi, and now you hear nothing of it anymore.
    I don't plan on buying a Fermi card so it's not really relevant for me. But for others who own one it may be essential. As we can read in these forums...

    "Starting with the next release of NVIDIA Nsight, Fermi GPUs will no longer be supported. "

    This is why fermi is likely EOL , fermi is being dropped from nsight which is used for software development and debugging.

    No software development support = effective death

    k that would make sense as no one in the right mind would develop software using older gpus. the Fermi Quadro GPUs mostly any Quadro GPU should EOL faster than the consumer product mostly because you would want Top of the line Quadro cards in your setup for programing new games i guess.

    There is 1.58 Tflops compute power on the gtx580. Its more powerful than Xbox one. Its a shame to throw into the garbage becouse its has "missing feature set" for next api.

    They promissed and didnt deliver. I was very surpriced when i heard that there is a older driver that can run dx12 api overhead test while latest one cant. What a nonsense.

    a solution is nvidia open source code driver nvidia to all and users create driver dx12 for fermi :)

    why nvidia not open source code of your drivers?
