I just can't believe Nvidia would purposely "downgrade" Kepler at this time. IMO, neglecting Kepler optimizations for new games isn't the same as downgrading, but it's still bad to just neglect the older series like that. Nvidia has apparently responded to the complaints though, and promised a new driver for Kepler. What makes me cautious though is that this never had happened if Nvidia hadn't been called out for neglecting Kepler. It's probable that this same scenario will happen again in the future.
