    I have commented in the past that no other company is as thorough with regards to its current line-ups as NVIDIA, but today's launch of the company's GeForce GTX 650 Ti surprises even me. With the release of the GTX 660 and 650 weeks ago, I couldn't fathom that there was room for yet another card, but lo and behold, here it is - and just in time to preface the holiday season.

    I have not taken the time to keep up with NVIDIA's Kepler line. But from chatting with my number-crunch buddies, these things look to be significantly faster than Fermi ... maybe 3X faster! Fermi is at least 9X faster than my overclocked i7-990X.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla_GPU ... I just started using a M2090 & it is very fast

    Given the Kepler road map & utilizing PCIe 3.0, I find it mind boggling as to what game development should be working on. What kind of games other than FPS could make use of all of this computational power?

    I think I want to get back to coding just to create games. (Talk is cheap tho.:() The crap I'm working on now just has customer's which are a PITA! LOL Decades ago :( Mattel had a gaming system & games that had synthesized male & female voices for describing status in the game. I am thinking about games that push the "attention budget" of the human being & pull the game environment out of the cloud ... the scenes will always be different!! Voice recognition for giving & acknowledging commands with the team(s).
