Thanks to yesterday's announcement, we know that NVIDIA will be pushing out Tegra chips annually, or at least that's the plan at this point, but what about GPUs? Like the title says, the next big thing coming down the pipeline according the NVIDIA's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang will come along sometime next year, and it's codenamed Kepler. Kepler will be manufactured using a 28nm process technology and provide users up to four times the double-precision floating point performance per watt of NVIDIA's current-generation Fermi GPU architecture, which is the foundation of the GeForce 400 series.

Jen-Hsun Huang states that hundreds of engineers are working on the next generation GPU, and when completed, over $2 billion dollars will have been spent on the R&D of Kepler. If that sounds exciting, then you'll love what's coming in 2013. The GPU codenamed Maxwell will use a 22nm fabrication process while promising copious amounts of compute performance, to the tune of sixteen times the performance of the current generation Tesla. We captured some video of Jen-Hsun as he spoke about these future products and have it posted for you below.

Stay tuned to HotHardware for more news from NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference as it breaks.

Looks like AMD needs to be ready to bring it. At least Jen-Hsun didn't feel pressured to hold up a fake card this time, and make us think the new product wasn't still six months from launch.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

Any word on a refresh of the current cards?
