    Or at least that is the semi-finalized launch date. This means the card will not be released during the CES time-frame. January 22nd 2015 seems to be the date and that fits the reports we have mentio...

    I expect on that day something very different and much more interesting. Toxikk early access on Steam.

    But for those interested in paying extra for hardware instead of electricity bill and performance this may be product of choice.
    Energy efficiency should allow to push limits of top dog HW. Both in desktop and mobile not to make cripples.

    Do you think it will be worth to change GTX 670 for this ?

    my guess is around 20% improvement for you. I do not believe it is worth while upgrade. You for sure are better to look for some GTX970, or wait for next high ends in 1H 2015.

    Should be more or less in pair with GTX770 that you can find atm for 200-250$.

    Meh, first time i'm not interested in X60GTX.

    No its just Nvidia's monetization policy.

    128-bit wide memory bus combined with a price of 199 dollars doesn't sound likely to me. 249 dollars as an asking price sounds far fetched. Benchmarks are important to selling in cards in volume. Older nVidia cards and current AMD cards make such a hypothetical offering unappealing.

    I'm speaking of resolutions of 1080p and above, with MSAA and/or some form of super sampling or upscaling involved. With post processing AA, and restricted to 1080p, I think a 128-bit memory bus could fare quite well in a lot of titles and with great image quality. But the standard suite of benchmarks and settings could make such a card difficult to sell when compared to cards like a R9 270x or a GTX 660/760. And afaik those cards can often be found at a discount that makes them a much superior buy to a 128-bit card.

    Maybe there's been a game changing development made by nVidia that largely erases the disadvantage of having only a 128-bit memory bus. I really doubt that though.

    I would have thought 196bit memory and 3/6GB of Vram but we will see. I also would not be surprised if we dont see a GM204 chip cut down and called the 960ti.

    128bit memory bus, 1 6pin PEG..... So, this thing will OC like crap and perform like crap at stock clocks. I'm having flashbacks to my first 660...... Hopefully AMD brings something more appealing.

    I'm very curious about this card but I'll probably hold on to my trusty 760... Maybe wait for the successor of 900 series.

    faster 128bit is more cute than slower 256 or 512bit...

    it's as in car technology, i have in my track car a nice 1.6 C CM that is far far better than my 2.4 C CM from last year (despite more or less the same HP output).

    high number is not panacea... only the result matter.

    have you seen how low electricity needed to OC the 750Ti or 970/980?
    one 6pins will be enough even with OC i guess... result in a few days.

    Maxwell is super good, this 128 bit will be aided by special algorithm and other stuff that will make perform good, we all see on the 22nd.

    The only thing I care about is 1080p (well 1200p) gaming, but I'm still concerned about 2GB VRAM.


    Most people are saying it should be around the GTX 770 level of performance, which is good I guess since I was looking at that card before.

    I bet you think the Jaguar 64 was better than the PS1? :nerd:

    Sorry for OT but WTF is that game? It looks like they directly ripped UT2004 gameplay. I suggest you look into Reflex on Steam as that is much more "old school Arena" like gameplay than this. Not these huge maps with vehicles driving around. And the trailer says no leveling yet every kill you get + xp.

    Well it will be crippled with 128bit once you start applying MSAA and higher reso., no doubt here.

    I think it will be around 580GTX or 680GTX performance max.
