While searching the nvidia site on the download section of their site a weird thing popped up referencing the 700 series gpu. There is no information other then this on their driver download section.

Ya quite interesting maybe they might actually release the 700 series this year as the refresh models?

If there wasn't a shortage of 28nm capacity all nvidia and amd gpu's would be 28nm and we could have newer achitectures too but 28nm was problematic for ages.

Probably will since AMD is coming out with 8xxx series which are way over the current 7xxx series.

...and after that, they'll release the 800 series. Then, the 900 series.

That rebranding scourge is a mortal sin. Has really taken up lately.

Might as well go for 1000. Not that big of a number and nothing to confuse it with. Radeons, on the other hand, probably won't stick to HD 10000 - and their turn comes first.

I was being sarcastic, but maybe. Although 1000 just sounds so... underwhelming. :laugh:

I second that - found it out the hard way when I purchased a Lenovo desktop with the Radeon HD 7450 upgrade only to find that the GPU is worse than the Intel HD 4000 that sits on the CPU itself - the Radeon HD 7450 is just a rebadged 6xxxx series that performs worse than the video card that came with my iMac (6970M w/ 2GB). I've since upgrade to a Sapphire 7750 w/ 2GB GDDR3 and made sure this time it is actually using the new architecture rather than it being rebadged crap.
