Half a year has passed and we can conclude that NVidia has introduced only one new processor. May be it is one, but it is the GK104. This is pretty bad, especially for a company that is striving to keep the leadership position on the market. As the second part of the year has come to pass, we got another processor based on the architecture Kepler, but this one is made for the lower end of the market and it is named GK107. When we say the lower end, we think about the most interesting part of the market, where the graphic card has a price of about 100 Euro. Continue reading
Except for good GPU’s, NVidia is master of creating a big hype, especially before their launch. AMD should learn something from them. With every new generation they raised a lot of dust, about how great their new product will be, upon which they would present a lot of test, reviews, and thoughts, about their new technology. Now they presented the newest Kepler architecture and with it again the same story.
Kepler or GK104 is NVidia’s GPU, made in 28nm technology. They didn’t want to experiment that much, so they kept the basic principles that they picked up from Fermi. Continue reading
