Semiaccurate is absolutely wrong about Kepler ... again :)


Charlie Demerjian knows nothing about Kepler, just speculating from his own ass. Today is on S/A this article: Nvidia will ‘launch’ GK104/Kepler/GTX680 in a week

So, when is the GK104/GTX680 going to launch? Late last week, Nvidia sent out announcements to a lot of people asking if they could join the company for the launch on March 12th. Since they mentioned the GTX680 by name in the invites, and sites don’t have cards yet, it looks to be about as ‘real’ as recent AMD launches. No pretty pictures of the invite though, it looks like they once again forgot to send SemiAccurate one, but since we published most of the info a month ago, no big deal.S|A

Everything there is wrong, lets analyze it:

Nvidia will ‘launch’ GK104/Kepler/GTX680 in a week (wrong). So, when is the GK104/GTX680 going to launch? Late last week, Nvidia sent out announcements to a lot of people asking if they could join the company for the launch on March 12th (maybe). Since they mentioned the GTX680 (maybe) by name in the invites, and sites don’t have cards yet (wrong), it looks to be about as ‘real’ as recent AMD launches (wrong). No pretty pictures of the invite though, it looks like they once again forgot to send SemiAccurate one (right), but since we published most of the info (speculations) a month ago, no big deal.S|A
