    I just want 3 cards. Simplify the market for consumers and even more importantly, for developers. These SE editions of BS cards like the 1050...come on.
    Ti 4200, 4400, 4600. That's all you had.

    1180, 1170, 1160. That's all that is needed. Give them whatever naming scheme you want. I just feel the over saturated market is hurting the business. Especially odd cards that are so under-powered and have multiple variations. I don't mean to sound like a snob, but if you want to game on PC, you should have nothing less than a XX60 series. Anything else makes sense for old school gaming or people just not content with onboard. But the crap I see. High-end too. I don't need a 1170 X T9 OC SE X Edition. And one without the X at the end. And one without SE AND X. Then add a Gold version with a robust fan configuration and a ultimate OC. Then add this 10 times again to the 70 and 60 versions.

    With so much console parity and so few decent PC exclusives that aren't broken Steam beta games that couldn't run properly on hardware 5 years from now in it's current state, there's no reason to jump in big with this next-gen of GPU's. I won't take this advice because I'm an american consumption based idiot. But it's really not necessary. Ok...for some 4K titles. FF15 killed my 1080 at 4K. But I don't see anything being more demanding than FF15. That game, imo, sets the mark for the best possible console port without parity, that you can have. And seeing what the 1080 was able to accomplish with that, I think anyone on the 10-series will be fine until the PS5/XBOX 2/Google Gaming device rumored for next-gen

    I agree with you but it isn't AMD and NVIDIA adding all those versions. That's the partners doing it. Some are worse at it than others like EVGA. I mean there was like 7 different versions of the 980ti from EVGA when I bought mine.

    Care to explain why you feel the market needs 16 variants of each card, by each vendor?

    Not 16, but not 3 either. If you understand basic concepts of market niches you will understand.

    Oh, I know vendors are a huge part of the problem
    I understand supply and demand. Lol.

    It's one thing to have a standard version and an overclocked version. But why do we need 4 different overclocked versions of the same card where they vary by clockspeed by a few mhz. This does nothing but confuse people.

    Look at this crap.

    Seriously, nvidia went too far with the 10 series. The chopping and reconfiguring of core counts/memory amounts on the 1030, 1050, 1060 and 1070 line is just confusing and sometimes deceptive to those who aren't as experienced in this market as we Guru's are.

    Then don't write silly stuff. ;)
    Sure, I fully agree with this, this is just a way of deceiving potential customers.

    However, we do need various models, for various use case scenarios and business sectors. For instance at my work now I have gt 1030 3gb version, its over the roof for my PC, but it does its job really well and doesn't even have a fan. Nice and quiet. As an example, why would I need 1050 here?

    RTX 2080 makes sense. We might also see 1180 GTX, the same card minus the tensor cores, thus no ray tracing.
