Oh man, it feels like it has been forever since NVIDIA released a product based on a new architecture. And I know you'll have been feeling and sharing the same sentiment as well. It's time for something new alright.
But realistically, the economic times have an effect on the graphics industry as well as a changing market. Next to that the new 28 nm fabrication process technology had to mature a little before becoming a viable commercial product.

The GeForce GTX 680 2 GB is now a fact and selling in the stores as we speak. The all new product has some interesting new features which we'll happily discuss with you -- obviously the GeForce GTX 680 is positioned against AMD's Radeon HD 7970 so we'll pit it against each other 1:1 -- gangsta guru style.
