Lightbulb GTX 900/Maxwell announcement this month?

Nvidia has posted earlier today on their twitter that they will be organizing anunprecedented 24 hour event to celebrate PC Gaming. This looks like a perfect event to reveal the Maxwell GPU's, as there have been many rumors suggesting Maxwell announcement being in September.

According to the "Leaks" the 880/980 or what ever they are calling it will not outperform a 780 Ti but only a standard 780

That is what I have heard also, but they are less power hungry.

The maxwell GPU's will improve a lot in terms of power consumption, but not in terms of performance

I expect a GTX 780 equivlant to use half of the power
That means less hassle for people wanting to go SLI, better temps, lower power consumption and better overclocking capability (possibly)

So there are more benefits for enthusiasts than just power bills

I'll stick to the 780 Ti, I'll get a newer gen card when it has at least 6GB as standard *Non Titan style cards* and is at least 20% faster than the 780 Ti

I'm looking forward to seeing what the 980 will be like, if it is faster than a 780ti I might get one. If the 970 and 980 are just lower power consumption maxwell versions of the 780 and 780ti I won't bother, not like the £10 a year on electric it will save me is a good reason to buy one if the performance isn't any better.

I want to see what AMD have up their sleeve as well though, if they bring a card out that is £100 cheaper and just as fast i'd rather buy that. This is the only reason my last few cards have been AMD, Nvidia haven't given me a reason to spend the extra money for barley any noticeable difference.

See I love Physx in the games that have it, GeForce Experience, Shadowplay, CUDA acceleration on certain apps, TXAA and Adaptive V-Sync so I'm willing to pay a little more for Nvidia.

Plus the reference Nvidia cards always look ten times better than AMD, To me anyway and I'm the type of person that loves looking inside their case through the side window and have it all glinty and shiny and sexy ergo Nvidia all the way to the bank for me
