Nvidia confirms the release of its GPU Kepler in 2012

We learned there is little that the next GPU architecture from NVIDIA, Kepler, was "taped out". This important step does not allow to determine with certainty the launch window of Kepler. Last September, Nvidia was counting on the second half of 2011, but production difficulties by TSMC left some doubt.

Uncertainty is no longer valid as announcing the release of Kepler in 2012. In the best case, we must expect a launch in the first quarter of next year, two years after the GeForce GTX 480.

Nvidia also seems satisfied with the pace of change in two years: the successor of Kepler, Maxwell, is scheduled for 2014.
