Nvidia Fermi successor called Kepler, coming next year

Quote:
Exciting stuff at the end of Jen-Hsun Huang's GTC keynote as Nvidia's CEO has presented a roadmap depicting the next two GPU architectures currently in the works at the Santa Clara company. Fermi's successors are known as Kepler and Maxwell and are scheduled to launch in 2011 and 2013, respectively.

I'm not really an Nvidia fanboi, I've just never used an ATI/AMD card. My first pc had an Nvidia 7 something and when I upgraded to an 8800GTS I was amazed.
Also with every new driver it just got better and better.
So I've stuck with what I know on my latest build.
However, it looks to me that Nvidia are in serious trouble.
With AMD buying ATI the game changed. ATI got it's own chipset manufacturor.
With Sandybridge and AMDs Fusion CPUs you can see the low end card market disappearing.
Great news for Intel and AMD. The death of Nvidia I would have thought.
Nvidia have lost BFG and XFX. They once ruled top, middle and bottom end GPU ranges. Now they are having modest success in the middle with the 460.
AMD are all over the top end (Fermi don't even figure in the main part of Steam's recent survey) are doing ok in the middle and, as I say the bottom end will likely disappear.
Also Nvidia don't have a x86 licence.
Sadly I could see Nvidia going under which would be tragic for the gaming industry.
I have to say that for my next upgrade I might try an AMD card for the first time

Tbh, losing XFX isn't that much of a loss. Their quality has gone down hill.

Not that surprising considering the lead AMD had in the marketplace while Fermi was brewing.

The only positive about nvidia potentially going under is that the Catalyst team could hire the former forceware driver team and possibly make some half decent drivers for a change...

They've been saying Nvidia is in trouble or the last 3 years.
That roadmap is interesting though. That performance increase from Maxwell is pretty large.

Fermi, Kepler....I like that the people at that company seem to like physics/astronomy

Steam survey.
Nvidia only has almost 60% usage by steam players.

Almost out of buisness.

Funny thing, when I saw the name Maxwell the first thing that came to mind was this,

Wow, they just keep things moving forward!

The Fermi GPUs only launched earlier this year.

w00t. I'm looking forward to see how much performance those will gain over Fermi. nVidia say it will be twice as much but you know, it's pure marketing here.

Anyway, I will be still buying an overclocked GTX460 with my next build so yeah... imma fan boy!
