    This!

    I expected most users here to be more mature than that.

    Don't like nVidia threads by nVidia customers about potential nVidia products that excite them? Don't read and/or post in the nVidia sub-forum. Pain relieved.

    I think a lot of it is people seeing what they want to see. The price cuts earlier in this thread are proof of this -- GTX 580 prices are not lower as mentioned a few posts ago, with the galaxy model in particular (was 464$ in august of last year on newegg, 414 after MIR) -- just goes to show that people are craving for information on Kepler. And why NV isn't giving any, who knows.

    I guess i'm guilty of this at times myself, I crave new tech.

    Anyway! Someone hook us up with borderlands 2 info. Hardware physx?

    i really dont have anything against nvidia. i just hate 50 threads on the same topic with mostly the same info. this happens with every hardware release. how many 7970 threads were there before it released? in about 2 weeks there will be 10 new IB threads everyday.

    I see this as the "need" generation.

    There will not be any price/performance cards on the market. If you want a faster card, you will pay what the market commands for it.
    We're not going to get a sub $400 7970 killer from Nvidia now that they're claiming bad yields. nV faster than the 7970? You will pay for it.

    From a cost POV, this gen is join to suck. If you have a need, buy now. If not, CF/SLI what you have because prices on 28nm will not drop anytime soon.

    Fair enough! I wasn't following them at the time, but I bet the Bulldozer threads got pretty hairy too. It would be nice to see the signal/noise ratio improve to where you had real hope of actual INFORMATION in a thread form time to time.:D

    I even visit SA once in a while now, Lord help me...

    Indeed. I don't frequent the AMD subforum or the Apple ones very much, since I don't use their products a ton generally. Why would I? It would only annoy people and not really benefit anyone.

    I love how this thread went from hopefully seeing kepler this weekend. To kepler not showing up, then people bitching about Nvidia, To comparing Nvidia's cards to AMD 7k series.

    LOL..../facepalm

    Such is the nature of internet forums. People are always excited about something new and upcoming that they would jump on any rumor the moment they surface and create threads about it.

    Would have been good if we could organize all rumors into a single thread, but seeing as how the discussion in those existing threads quickly spiral out of hands, this probably won't work either. :p

    I just spent a crap load of time thinking about buying a HD7950 and just when I was about to pull the trigger I couldn't get over the high costs and decided to wait for Kepler.

    At this point in time I'm waiting for Kepler only because I hope it will lead to better pricing on 28nm video cards.

    So, no word on BL2 as well? People that were in attendance seem to be ignoring the questions.

    High cost? LOL

    Which forum are you at?

    Also, GTX 580 3GB is the same price if you want to talk about price....:p

    Sure but GTX580 is EOL and was the fastest card for more than a year. That was a real enthusiast card. You won't see huge price cuts because they are getting rid of the stock and that's about it. The current next gen AMD offereings and probably Gk104 are not enthusiast products for me. And i am very convinced that neither of them will be the fastest card during the next gen on 28nm and probably will not have that crown for a year timeframe. The DIE size points to a performance segment product within the new generation. So i would not pay the price that is demanded right now.

    My GTX570 is still doing pretty well, so Kepler isn't an absolute "need it now" product for me. In my case, I just want a timeframe so I have a price/performance reference.
    I've had too much bad luck with ATI to jump ship unless I *know* Kepler is a dud.

    Am I the only one who's worried about Borderlands 2 on Tegra (mobile devices)? :p

    I hope that's not the direction the gaming industry is heading towards

    So, basically... we can't talk about Borderlands 2. A rep from gearbox urges it, and me being a respectful gamer, won't get into details. I loved the first one too much to be a dick. Ill be brief. So, lets just say I am VERY excited for this game. And no word on PhysX. But I wouldn't doubt it...

    VERY excited..... *drools in my head*

    Hey thanks for the update warrior. Can't say I'm disappointed since nvidia never said what they would be talking about. I'm also liking some of the stuff I'm hearing about borderlands.

    Either way, did the tourney get started ever?

    Telling it to an audience of gamers with internet connections who are chatting it to many forums in one place. After showing something and asking them to pinky swear not to tell.


    Now you're trolling.

    If you feel I'm trolling for being a respectful person, to a representative of the game developers, then you sir are not a respectful person, and therefor you're a prick... :rolleyes:

    They showed us the game because we are PC gamers, WE are they're audience. Over 500 of us. They wanted to tease us in the worse way. And, quiet frankly I'm very okay with that. I got to see glimpses of the very game I'm anticipating this year, and no one else but the attendees can see it, and told to be quiet about it. Fine with me. I can respect that.

    If you can't respect that, I don't give a shit. I respect people/game developers that do something like this. And, I thank Gearbox for doing it.

    You didn't attend, so it's all your loss bro.

    Well, if it makes you feel better to pay $72-$77 and wind up essentially shafted, more power to you. Gearbox was more then likely requested to play it down by Nvidia, who wasn't prepared to exhibit what everybody most likely thought would be there. If I were you, I'd be pissed.

    I did not read the entire thread... skipped to the last page. AFAICT there is no new GPU news. Instead some folks got to see a Borderlands 2 video and apparently they have been given "secret squirrel" status and cannot talk about it.

    I gotta say. This thread so far is about 8 pages of fail. :p

    Dude, I paid months before Nvidia said shit. I pay for the event, not the sponsors. :rolleyes:

    I don't feel shafted one bit. I already won an M60 mouse biotch! :p

    Anyways, to answer a previous question, the BF3 tourney is starting now, my team isn't up for a bit, so we are practicing. now. I'll be out for a bit.

    if you think it was some crazy showing of BL2... it wasn't. It was a teaser video that will probably be released soon. And, it was good. Really good. Can't wait :D

    Just leave warrior alone , jeez. If he's respectful thats cool in my book, I'm highly anticipating borderlands 2 as well. I hope to baby jesus it has better co-op connectivity, maybe steamplay or something.

    Now if he had a kepler NDA we'd have to ransack his home for info :p

    Rage had a teaser trailer that was really good, crysis 2 had a teaser trailer that was really good, have just these 2 flops not taught you anything?
