If you haven't heard, there were rumors going around that NVIDIA's new Kepler graphics card series were going to be delayed until 2012. Well, NVIDIA confirmed it today. A spokesman for NVIDIA named Ken Brown said, "Although we will have early silicon this year, Kepler-based products are actually scheduled to go into production in 2012. We wanted to clarify this so people wouldn’t expect product to be available this year." NVIDIA's new Kepler platform will be better at handling GPGPU (general purpose processing on GPU) activities, meaning the CPU will have less to do with processing and the GPU will have more. It will also use the new 28nm process, meaning it will be cooler and run more efficiently while performing better. You can read more about it here.
