  1. TSMC announced this week that it has commenced volume production of 28nm silicon and the first wafers have already been shipped to customers. TSMC's 28nm process comes in several variants:…

    Sigh, who comes up with this naming!?
    Call it what it is; Geforce GTX 570 SE
    There, that wasn't so hard now was it?

    It has nothing in common with the already existing 3 different "560" series cards, or as vrzone so eloquently put it "a new height for GPU nomenclature chaos."

    Agree with all the comments so far. I like Nvidia's GPUs since I see them as the spiritual inheritor of 3dfx but dammit they're getting ridiculous with their products and names.

    What happened to the days of vanila cards with other options.

    Example: Nvidia 6800, Nvidia 6800GT and Nvidia 6800 Ultra

    Pretty obvious which one was more powerful back then.
     
  9. Figures....they announce this a week after my purchase of the GTX560 Ti. Oh well....I wonder if I'll be able to running it in SLI with the one I just bought...I sure hope so.
     
  10. Why only give it 1280MB of GDDR5 VRAM? They have 2GB 560 Ti models and yet they exclude that with the NEW beefed up 3-way SLI enabled 560 Ti coming out?

    *sigh*

    I'm with m****, bring on Kepler.
     
  11. I'm thinking they're releasing this because they had a significant chip stock of the prior fabrication tech (40nm); so to use it up before the 28nm kepler is released, they just decided to release the card and make so more money over the holidays - cuz you know everything will sell lol. It's all about leverage, and they sure have a solid plan in place.
