The current 680 was intended to be a midrange card, and it shows pretty hard in the specs.
2 Fermi will still be a heavy contender for a while yet
Fermi gets demolished by Kepler in every benchmark. Hell the midrange Kepler keeps up with the 590 in most tests.
3 Keplar requires specialized shader presets to take advantage of the new speed boost technology.
Not at all.
3 fermi will still perform amazing with AAA titles that do not support TXAA
if by well you mean gets half the performance, then yes "well".
4 Games will not start taking advantage of these new shaders for at least a year or 2 after release
5 Keplar cards will not take advantage of DX 11.1 beacause we are still waiting for most companies to get on board with DX11 there are still only a handful of companies using DX11
This is the perfect time to upgrade then, as when studios start making DX11 more mainstream its requirements are going to go up quickly.
