There is not much in the article other than to say that NVIDIA GeForce 7-series desktop graphics cards may arrive sooner than thought. While previous rumors pointed to a year-end release, the site now claims NVIDIA has something new in store for Computex 2013.

The questions becomes: is it new or is it rebadge?

Rebadge. Both Intel and Nvidia work on a tick-tock model.

Only difference is Intel has a more conservative approach of going for a an architecture change on an established process. Nvidia changes both architecture (Kepler) and process (28nm) in the same year (2012). Nvidia also appears to target Intel releases to coincide with their own and since Haswell is coming out in June, chances are so will the 700 series (plus/minus a month or two).

I'm sure one (or both) of the companies will miss that target someday but when it happens it will be the exception rather than the rule.

It can always change, but their current roadmap still puts the release at next year.

I was so confused when I saw the threads topic, I assumed somebody wanted to crunch on a GeForce 7800 or something. ;) I think nVidia would call the next incarnation "700 series", just like current Kepler cards, which are "600 series".

Correct me if I'm wrong.. but it's not official yet anyway.

Here is the next new snippet I saw ... (text follows link)

http://www.dvhardware.net/article58180.html

Bright Side of News delivers exclusive word that NVIDIA will reveal three new GeForce GTX 700 series branded cards in the coming weeks. These cards will be based on current GPUs though, the next-gen architecture (aka Maxwell) from NVIDIA isn't expected to arrive until 2014, so we have to make due with slight updates of current offering.

First up is the GeForce GTX 780, this card is the "GeForce GTX Titan LE". Based on a cut-down GK110 GPU, this model seems like a consumer version of the Tesla K20C, with 2496 CUDA cores and 5GB GDDR5 memory. Performance is said to be around 30 percent faster than a GeForce GTX 780, with pricing likely in the vicinity of $499 to $599

Next is the GeForce GTX 770, this model is based on the GK104-425 die and is basically a higher clocked version of the GeForce GTX 680. It has a 256-bit memory bus, 4GB GDDR5 memory, and performance around 20-25 percent better than the GeForce GTX 670.

The final part in the lineup is the GeForce GTX 760 Ti. Based on the same GK104-225 die as the GeForce GTX 670, this model promises around 20-23 percent higher performance than a standard GeForce GTX 660 Ti.

The GTX 770 is anticipated to launch around mid-May, the GeForce GTX 780 should follow in the final days of May and the GTX 760 Ti is planned for a Computex launch in early June. Naturally, there's also a possibility that NVIDIA will launch all three parts together and claim to have the best product stack for gamers out there.

30 percent faster than itself, that's impressive. I shall buy one.

Sounds like some might be selling their GTX 580 cards, eventually. :)

Buy several, that should compound the increase!

It's appears to be a typo within the article. My reading of the tea leaves is that it should read 30 percent faster than a GeForce GTX 680 ...

As a stock single GPU item that would be impressive, even though my 680's not that old I suppose in gpGPU terms it's getting on a bit. Assuming the Titan refinements to turbo-boost carry through then they should be overclocking beasts (while the 680 is quickly volt starved, by hardwired limits)

Though an nVidia-cuda fan myself, keep in mind some of the newer AMD devices should be capable of similar (faster than 680) throughput as well. I've seen some impressive times, and I was pleased to hear the drivers and applications have matured a lot as well. So it'll come down again to efficiency, costs initial vs ongoing & raw performance.

At least when my 680 has a backup replacement, I'll finally get the chance to volt-mod it. Never know, if the TITAN and successor stay up in the AUS$1200 region, I may be forced to go with an AMD offering next myself :-O

The 680 and 770 should be the same card.
I read someone flashed new software into the 680 and got a 770.
