Your future phones will play Battlefield 3 easily.

With the recently successful launch of Nvidia’s flagship GTX 680 graphics card, the company’s CEO sent out an email congratulating his employees on their hard work developing the Kepler architecture. Furthermore, Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun also talked a bit about where the Kepler architecture will be headed in the future.

The whole email can be seen below, as reported by AnandTech.

Notice the bolded part in the email where Jen-Hsun talk’s about the Kepler architecture coming to superphones. While not exactly a confirmation, nor an idea of their roadmap, the future of our phones certainly seems bright.

Today, the first Kepler – GTX 680 – is on shelves around the world!

Three years in the making.  The endeavor of a thousand of the world’s best engineers.  One vision – build a revolutionary GPU and make a giant leap in efficient-performance.

Achieving efficient-performance, great performance while consuming the least possible energy, required us to change our entire design approach.  Close collaboration between architecture-design-VLSI-software-devtech-systems, intense scrutiny on where energy is spent, and inventions at every level were necessary.  The results are fantastic as you will see in the reviews.

Kepler also cultivated a passion for craftsmanship – nothing wasted, everything put together with care – with a goal of creating an exquisite product that works wonderfully.  Let’s continue to raise the bar and establish extraordinary craftsmanship as a hallmark of our company.

Today is just the beginning of Kepler.  Because of its super energy-efficient architecture, we will extend GPUs into datacenters, to super thin notebooks, to superphones.  Not to mention bring joy and delight to millions of gamers around the world.

I want to thank all that gave your heart and soul to create Kepler.  You’ve created something wonderful.

Congratulations everyone!




From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
