NVIDIA has a message for its Facebook followers: It's Coming. Two simple words, one of which is a contraction (so three words if you want to count it that way), with no accompanying explanation as to what exactly is on the horizon. A new model graphics card perhaps? Possibly. Could it be a computer case? Judging by the faint outline in the picture (see below), that's also a possibility.

Speculation in the comments section of NVIDIA's post is all over the place. Some of the guesses include a GeForce GTX 667, a dual-GPU GeForce GTX 690, a chassis, an NVIDIA brand laptop, Transformer 4 tablet, new Quadro graphics cards, and more.



"And with this picture they've just made the fine people at AMD crap themselves," one of the commenters muses.

We have no idea what it is, nor do we know when it's coming (Managing Editor and graphics guru Marco Chippetta reckons "it's most likely hinting at either a GK100-based card -- the GK104 in the GTX 680 isn't their biggest chip -- or a dual-GPU powered card"), but when it does arrive, we hope it's something awesome. No matter what it is, you can bet we'll let you know as soon as we find out. In the meantime, care to venture a guess of your own?

Since this is a NVIDIA GeForce Facebook account, then it's not Tesla, Quadro and Tegra - it's GeForce.

This IS exciting, most of the rumor's I've seen say the GK110 won't be until this summer. It would be sweet if they had an early release. My vote is for a dual-gpu 690.

Now you're just mashing it!

If it's a GK-110 based card what should they call it? GTX685, GTX680Ti? GTX780? o.o

yeah we got that Bad to the bone track in here in a few spots ..

yep thought about that TV show American Bandstand with *** Clark  remember watching it ..maybe buying some 45's seeing those folks dancing and making comments to some of Phil Spectors Wall of Sound hits like "they got a different sound,  and it it's got a good beat and you can dance to it "

some Motown oldies like this ? ..Neil ..?

Yeah that was one of them,...LOL!

I play-listed 125 of them and turned it up while doing all of the crap I had to get done.


Edit: I had read a few stories about D i c k Clark earlier today. That's probably what got me onto Motown to begin with.
