That's what I was thinking, surely the 980Ti would be a cut down GM200.
lol, I'm giving myself ideas, that's usually a bad thing to do when it comes to wanting things I can't afford yet
Last time around I bought 2x of the original 6GB Titans for 2 grand. Then realised that the original 780's were almost offering the same performance for half the price. So I sold the Titans and bought 3x 780's for 1500 bucks. Better performance and I'd made back 500 bucks in the re-sale.
So yeah, I wouldn't put it past NVidia to do something this stupid again. And I know i'll be buying a couple of 980Ti's and not the Titan X this time.
It's not stupid what Nvidia is doing at all,it's actually clever.
If u wanna be the first one to have the best single GPU on the market for the next 2-3 months, then it's your choice.
Nobody is putting a gun to your head to buy anything really...
I know a way they could cut the 980ti down is by having a 5.5 + 0.5gb setup lol jk.
But seriously now. and I though that the 980ti is supposed to be a dumbed down version of the Titian X which means a tad less Cuda Cores and a tad less ROPs. But according to these rumored specs other than VRAM it is exactly the same. To me it looks like Nvidia is competing against itself and AMD. I hope that this does not happen.
Not really, I think Titan x is a limited number release card,overpriced, and Nvidia will still make profit.
Not really, the TI was gimped when it came to overclocking using a custom volt mod. The original Titan destroyed it on water. The TI was locked down where the original Titan was not.
On another note this is what happens when you become an early adopter of the latest hardware. If you want it straight away you pay alot compared to what you will pay later.
Titan surely went pretty high with clocks, but your definition of "Destroy" is quite over exaggeration.
For me 50% performance boost is getting close to "destroy" statement, but not quite there yet, since we are talking about high performance class GPUs.
And they provide quite similar playability. While One can state that Titan X is twice as strong than HD7970. Reality is, that HD7970 running SMAA vs Titan X running SGSSAA does not drastically change what is on screen, nor what fps game plays at.
Apparently when one renders at 60-90fps and 2nd at 100-120fps, difference is big, but for most games (and all 60Hz gamers) playability does not change much.
Would be very different story if we talk about average 40fps vs 55fps. But for Titan/780 it was not case (unless user decided to break his own experience).
At high end GPU market we tend to burn a lot of performance to gain small graphical improvements around edges.
With DX12/UE4 particle systems we get stuff which will be worth moving that performance from heavy AA to object count/geometry details rendered.
Too much money?
As a potential buyer i dont see anything but good in that news.
Bring fully unlocked 980ti for 700$-750$ anytime :banana:
Anything is too much money atm, I always have to sell something first, save up the rest to buy an upgrade, which is why I try to do it moderately regularly so the price difference is not too huge
My whole setup is the result of about 7 years of upgrading a crappy partially second hand parts machine, sheer luck of being gifted GPUs, and companies like Corsair replacing my old TX for this RM, birthday, christmas presents etc
Wait so when should we expect a GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 (or whatever the hell they call it) versions of Maxwell? They did it for Kepler with the 680 series and then the 780 series.
I am more of a GTX x70 guy. I was hoping for a Maxwell GTX 1070 sometime soon to upgrade.
As a 780 owner this news interests me greatly, I was pretty set on getting the 390x. If this leak is accurate then I might stay with the green team once again.
I just bought 2x 980 for SLI within the month... YOu think this Ti version will be out in the next 2 months so i can use the step up program on both of these?
I used step up once. Not all cards are suitible for step up. Usually only stock versions or some Acx. You need to be inside 3 months - better check the conditions..
i did both my cards qualify as long as its within 3months...
Will it be really 6GB? Partitioned or constant? You know, partitioned memory in 970 was epic and revolutionary technology created by nvidia, they would be stupid if they wouldn't use it again.
so any eta yet or speculation date?
Hi there fellows has been a long time I since I posted something here at my home Guru3D. For those of you who are planning to buy a titan X I would give you a very smart word of advise , hold on to your money , something better is coming for a lot less money. A couple of little birdies inside the industry have actually confirmed to me this is actually true , yes the 980Ti it is coming out very soon and it will be the exact same specifications as the Titan X minus 6GB of Ram. There will be 980Ti 6GB and there will be many customs PCBs making the 980Ti a monster overclocking card leaving the Titan X on the dust ( think Asus Matrix , eVGA Classified , MSI Lightning etc ... ) It was a given this was going to happen and expected guys , this is not rocket science is just how the $$$ money making hardware industry works. If you bought a Titan X , in my opinion return that wayyy overpriced vga and buy yourself a 980Ti , trust me the better overclocker of them 2 will be the 980Ti , I have seen numbers and they are real . chispy out ...
