RAM: 6GB of A-DATA
PSU: X-Spice 630w
Not a lot of details to be had, but Nvidia wants you to know Fermi isn't the company's be-all, end-all GPU - "hundreds of engineers" are already hard at work on Codename Kepler, expected to go to production this year and ship in 2011. Kepler's based on a 28nm process, we're told, and will thankfully deliver an estimated 3 to 4 times the performance per watt compared to Fermi, and hopefully run cool.

If you built your last PC to last, however, you might wait for Maxwell in 2013, supposedly bringing a sixteen-fold increase in parallel graphics-based computing just two years after that, including advanced features like the ability to autonomously process some content independent of a CPU.

Make it run twice as fast as fermi but with half the energy requirements and I might buy one.

I'm willing to bet my right nut that's not going to happen.

Probably it will just be another oven, claiming 4 times the perfomance at the same power supply frying thermals.

GF110/GTX 5xx(580?) (yes we've gone back to increasing by 10 for new families) is based on the GF104 design and may have 1.5x as many shaders.
