NVIDIA GPU Roadmap To 2013 - Kepler and Maxell GPU's Coming

Postby Apoptosis » Tue Sep 21, 2010 11:52 am

NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference 2010 opening keynote just ended her in San Jose, and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has announced the successor to the Fermi GPU that was released in 2009. The new GPU will be called ‘Kepler’ and is scheduled to be released later in 2011. Jen-Hsun said that hundreds of engineers have been working on this processor and that it will be their first 28nm design. NVIDIA said they will have billions invested into the development of the processor and that it will be 3 to 4 times the performance per watt compared to Fermi. After Kepler is released at some point in 2011 the roadmap then shifts focus to Maxwell in 2013. This processor is said to be 10 to 12 times the performance per watt compared to Fermi, a sixteen-fold increase on parallel GPU computing and will be built on the 22nm process.

So it is either a nuclear weapon now or they finally got the power/heat issues under control. I wonder how much of the power issue and performance per watt is improved simply moving to the new 28nm process. Any ideas?

Apparently it makes quite the difference when looking at the graph.
