    If Nvidia could master the technique of building 7B transistor chips with 28nm, which makes you wonder what powerful GPU it would be if there is an GK114 GPU, aka GK104 with 7B transistors.

    You could maybe buy one card for price of the setup in your signature. Maybe.

    Image your face after you buy it, and open the box.

    It does make you wonder if they'll make a GK110 based GTX 685 or something.

    Not really, they can price it like the 680, and drop the other price.
    It will be out as soon as Nvidia solve their production chip issues, and AMD releases a better GPU

    Not really the most complex IC, just the biggest. Most x86 CPUs are quite a bit more complex.

    I don't think we will see GK110 in consumer graphics cards. If they will need quicker than GTX 680 single chip card, then they will supersize their GK104 with 1-2 additional blocks. It is pointless even for NVIDIA to bring such enormous chip to consumer market. Sure, folders will celebrate, but 70% of the extra performance is useless for majority of the buyers who would buy that card - that is why we have gaming oriented GTX680 after all.

    My opinion is that we won't see a consumer GeForce card based on GK110 - it will show up as Quadro at best.

    I don't see what's to hate about him. Sure he doesn't practice for 3 month his presentation, and that you feel he just comes on set, no practice, and just talk, so he says many silly things, and his enthusiasm of his company, is really visible, making him overly exiting and results in saying/doing silly things on set. But at least it is known that he actively work in the company as engineer, and not play golf.

    And at the end of the day... it doesn't really mater. I mean he is not aiming at the overall population. He aims at people who already don't trust anything a company says until reviews comes out, and look at gaming/research/simulation performance over anything.

    I enjoy his presentations, in all honestly, it's always fun to watch him. As long as he is proud, overly-exited, and you can see from his eyes the passion, excitement and motivation from his eyes, you know that the company will not go down, and try to innovate.

    I'd also add that he believes in his company enough to have its logo tattooed on his left arm!

    yeah me too good.. I like to poke fun at his marketing though :D the wood screws in a fake video card was the funniest.. who does that?

    seems he's one of those rare people like jobs who can draw in fans and really charge whatever he wants.. don't forget he was in cahoots with ati inflating gpu prices back in the day (before g80).. and look at where the prices are at today
