Nvidia Fermi Successor Called Kepler

From the dark temples of mount doom, the Nvidia war machines trumpet their next successor from the Ferbi line of video cards. Using Kepler's laws to give them an approximate description of the motion of planets around the Sun, they will have scheduled the launch perfectly in sync with 2012 at the time of the Apocalypse.

Fermi boxes are ready

But still empty

Last few days the Internet was flooded with a bunch of pictures of GTX 480/470 boxes but you should know that although partners have made those, they are still empty.

Quite a few boxes have appeared online including Palit's, Galaxy's, EVGA's and some others, but according to our info, all of those boxes are still empty as Nvidia still didn't ship GF100 based cards to its partners. Partners did get one or two samples just so they know what to expect when the full batch comes.

AMD’s answer to Fermi is Trillian

OC'd 5870 won't be enough

We learned that some of AMD loyal press (not us) got samples of a card codenamed Trillian.

Ever since the HD 5870 paper launch in Oakland, when we had a bit of an argument with ATI's PR chap, we never received any sample for them since we don't do what they want us to do. Well, that is called free press and I guess that we're willing to pay the price for it.

First Fermi cards to be GTX 480 and 470

A short tweet on Nvidia's Twitter accounts has revealed what appears to be first two cards that will be based on the Fermi architecture, the GTX 480 and GTX 470. This will at least clear some confusion and the average consumer can still buy cards keeping in mind that bigger number means new and better card, at least it should until Nvidia starts with more rebranding.

The Fermi will apparently be the 400 series, and for a while it has been known that two cards are going to launch as soon as Nvidia gets it ready.
