Interesting comment by OBR on his website.

"In a few days (weeks) will be announced "big" Kepler (GK1x0), on the GTC event will probably be presented as well as card based on this large chip. Specifications are brutal, but we're facing a big "BUT". Gamers will be clearly disappointed, just like me ... more info later, stay tuned.

PS. GeForce GTX 660 Ti has new name: GeForce GTX 660, maybe "Ti" model will be released later ... maybe not."

Sounds like they may try to release GK110 soon only for the professional markets first. They don't have the wafers along with the terrible yields to make GK110s in any meaningful quantities. A few good GK110 dies will pay for a wafer if used only for the high dollar professional cards.

Later in the year, when more wafers are available, and yields are up they can release GK110 for Geforce markets as well. My bet is that OBR is probably saying gamers will be disappointed because there will not be GK110 geforce products anytime soon...

Bottom line: Yields probably aren't the greatest and they simply don't have the wafer allocations to be pumping out tons of GK104,GK106, GK107, and GK110 chips at the same time.

Let's be realistic, GK110 isn't coming any time soon. I won't be surprised if it's not here till early 2013.

Can you please stop quoting that nitwit? He is pulling a Theo, taking things in the public domain, hinting that he knows something, and trying to look educated. He isn't. You lessen your reputation by adding to his, trust me, he isn't worth it. He doesn't know squat all.

Perhaps it's more like infamy, or something?
