Thanks for getting this posted guys! Hunting lunch currently, and will get some updates soon. Today is Press Day and tomorrow marks the start of the main event, so we're getting situated with everything, and we'll have more updates soon.

I'm flattered, but just because I arrive tomorrow, does not mean it marks the official start of the event!

Nvidia conference starts in an hour for anyone interested! The line is pretty long already here, but I've heard talk that the line for the Microsoft Keynote in 3 hours is already growing. Heading straight there after this, and I hope I get in!

Did Nvidia make any announcments about GPUs?

Nope, no Kepler info... just tablets and Tegra3.

That's a bit concerning to me. I hope the first gen of Kepler doesn't 'meh' out of the gate like the 400 series did when everyone was expecting 500 series performance, and Nvidia just couldn't deliver it.

To me, that means it isn't ready yet.

As the story goes...

On the first day, Glorious Leader said "create dance!"

And Glorious leader saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.

If you aren't following the live feed, Intel just officially introduced the K800 Lenovo Smartphone, the first phone powered by an Intel processor:

Talked to their lead marketing guy for desktop GPUs at the booth, and his only comment in regards to Kepler was 1st Half 2012, other than that they are focused on Tegra3 and the other things they have ready right now.

All the silence regarding Kepler tells me that they must not have it as figured out as they'd like... And that it's not as ready as it should be.

I saw a post on facebook by Francois Pidenoel (Intel engineer) saying he showed the SA writer that it works fine. The press event was a massive fail but apparently it does work.

I believe Gigabyte is supposed to have a G1.Sniper M3, mATX gaming board on display. If so, snap a pic or two
