And absolutely nobody at AMD - or at any other forum - really gets the big picture of what has been happening behind the scenes - not even now with another release imminent. And we are seeing regular stock of the GTX 680 now, so Nvidia is delivering quantity to meet the obviously big demand.
Anybody who is buying a GTX 600 series can probably rest assured that their card will be the top performer in its class for at least another 6-9 months. BigK is still off for the consumer and GK114 is filling in nicely. 680 was always intended to be Nvidia's flagship. i missed many details back in December; all i knew was that Nvidia was releasing its top card called the GTX 680 to replace GTX 580, and i was unaware of the TSMC issues with big dies until much later.
This is a lot of fun. Unraveling a mystery that very few have caught on to even now
