/drool ^.^

I am loving my GTX 680, but I know I will get this bad boy anyway. Im thinking this will be known as the GTX 780 (in its GeForce form anyway), but thats my guess, it makes sense though, lol.

Anyone notice in the first picture / slide, the number of SMX blocks isnt symetrical? 8 on the top half, and 7 on the bottom? I wonder if thats by design (maybe some room near one end of the die), or if a block is disabled (like in the GTX 480).

I'm willing to hold on to my cash until this drops. I'm only gaming at 1920x1200 and not many games are really pushing my pc graphically.

I can't wait for more details, this is going to be great.
