Maybe that Titan Ultra card rumored a couple weeks ago
dmitrijs88  +   182d ago
GTX790 (two titans cores in 1 gpu) - 1500$.
Oh joy!
Eonjay  +   181d ago
Well the 3 people who want to through down that kind of money on a card can enjoy Super Ultra resolution lol.

@Eonjay

On overclockforum there is plenty of people that play with over 6-10 millions of pixel (4k is around 8)... those kind of cards are needed at those resolution, I feel sorry you think there is only 3 people in the word that like gaming and are not broke.

Does the word "figurative" mean anything to you?
shadow18spirit  +   182d ago
isnt there an anouncement today or tomorrow about a gpu also ?
GentlemenRUs  +   182d ago
If its anything to do with a graphics card... prepare for a thing which will cost a 5-figure sum...
Are_The_MaDNess  +   181d ago
when did GPU's ever cost that much? unless you are talking about workstation cards (not sure what the US price is on those).

they will prob hint to the 800 series cards with the Maxwell Architecture that is suppose to have Unified Virtual Memory.

Lately Nvidia cards have been so overpriced. Thats why i switched to AMD.
dmitrijs88  +   181d ago
No clue why You got disagree. AMD cards literally kills Nvidia ones when we talk about value and compute power.
WarThunder  +   181d ago
@dmitrijs88, disagrees? Mindless Nvidia fanboys... They are just like Apple fanboys they like to pay for overpriced products.
Drummerdude41  +   181d ago
lol nvidia cloak, An api by Nvidia that is cooler than amd mantle in every way! If they do anounce a low prof api...would be good for my card but would create divisions throughout the pc dev community.
DeadlyFire  +   181d ago
NVIDIA Already has a low level API.

Drummerdude41  +   181d ago
Thnx for the info, need to go do more research as to why mantle is so relevant now.
DeadlyFire  +   179d ago
Its possible though that NIVIDA has not touched GPGPU functions for normal cards. Which Mantle does I believe, but I don't know for certain. I know NVIDIA has an API, but I don't know how far it goes. Mantle is said to reduce CPU load. Which makes me believe its acting like its offloading compute tasks onto the CUs in the GPU. :)

Not sure if NVIDIA's API does that for its CUDA cores. I am sure they are likely to come up with a counter for it if they do not.
Fishy Fingers  +   181d ago
Guess it'll have something to do with countering AMDs Mantle announcement.
Erudito87  +   181d ago
Yeah it probably is. I mean they would be fools to either not use it(ms has probably already given them massive offers to continue direct x support?) or create their own api that does a similar thing(creates even more fragmentation)

Hmmm... Considering the iPad conference is the next day could we see a Nvidia powered up iPad?
Kurylo3d  +   181d ago
NVIDIA to augment your brain. You heard it hear first.
LAWSON72  +   181d ago
That will be "super expensive"
KillrateOmega  +   181d ago
Their answer to AMD's Mantle.
ExitToExisT  +   181d ago
They will announce GTAV PC version:)
Mythicninja  +   181d ago
Wat? This is nvidea, not rockstar.
Lon3wolf  +   181d ago
Price drops for the gt 700 range?
Eldyraen  +   181d ago
I'm still not upgrading again till 800-900 series but would be cool for people that want to. I don't really see it being a major announcement but maybe an offhand to go with big one.

Still curious though.

Didn't Nvidia and Ubisoft just make a $5m deal recently? With Watchdogs delay could be making a WD bundle next year. I doubt that is the announcement but be cool ;). I often pick up new cards with a game or 2 attached. Unrelated really but expecting something like it near or after WD release now.

Maxwell is coming this year;thats my bet!
