As the NDA from Nvidia nears it’s end, another Kepler based GPU has started to surface across many retailers and shops world wide. In particular, a fews shops in Akihabara have gotten hold of the new models of the Kepler GK 107 based variant already.
The card is probably to be released at the Computex event that starts from tomorrow onwards and manufacturers namely Gigabyte, Gainward, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, Zotac, EVGA and other similar brands are expected to release the cards to the market.
Price wise the cards will be available from $108 to $178 with the price variation depending upon the memory type as well as clocks/cooling solution used on the GPUs.
ECS (Elitegroup) today has teased their GTX 680 Black series graphics card with a full press shot of the graphics card itself. The card is powered by Nvidia’s latest GK104 Kepler GPU and has been stress tested thoroughly to give the best it can in terms of graphics performance.
For those who were waiting for MSI’s BIG BANG motherboard on the Z77 chipset, the wait is almost over. MSI has been working lately on its latest Big Bang installment based on the Z77 chipset for both Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge processors on the LGA 1155 socket known as the MSI Big Bang ZPower motherboard and teased its press photos online.
MSI has churned out another variant yet of the to-be-outdated GTX 550 Ti graphics card with the N550GTX-Ti-MD1GD5-V2. The card will target the sub US $150 price price point and features a somewhat similar cooling solution as that to the reference GTX 550 Ti.
Even though Nvidia’s GTX 680 killed all the glory the AMD HD 7970 had, it hadn’t stopped on the other hand, from vendors from further customizing the card. Sapphire apparently came up with its Vapor X series of the graphics card, the Sapphire HD 7970 Vapor X edition.
Finalware, the company behind the renowned benchmarking software AIDA64, has now announced the availability of the AIDA64 Extreme Edition 2.50 software with also the immediate launch availability of the Business edition 2.50 as well that is itself an essential network management tool for small and medium scale enterprises.
Keep in mind, all such rumors should be taken as a pinch of salt. Previously as we had reported, the GTX 660 graphics card would be based on 4 SMX clusters, have 768 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 memory. Now the talk has been going around of the launch of the card itself. That too next week at the 2012 Computex in Taipei.
