    2x970's for £739 on release and then when they sell out it will jump up to £799.

    I think they would run two full GM204's. No?

    They May do but we dont know whether Maxwell can handle 2 fully fledged dies on its PCB without downclocking them slightly. Keplar could so its could be.....

    2xFully performance rated 980s=£999
    2xFully peformance rated 970's=£799
    2xSlight downclocked 980s ( abit like the 690)=£899

    Wild Sweeping statement but you never know:)


    More news on the Titan.
    Nvidia ‘Big Daddy’ Maxwell GM200 GPU Alleged Specs Leaked – GTX 980 Ti or GTX Titan X?

    I'm waiting until the Witcher 3 launch before I buy anything to be honest, so I'll wait and see. A couple of 970's in SLI is fantastic right now, but if I can get a 990 in the future for a decent price it may work out better for me.

    £739 for 2x 970s, you can get 2 for around £550.

    Ok maybe I was wrong with that wild sweeping statement but a dual card will run quieter, consume less power, run cooler, take up less physical space and could potentially oc much further depending on how many phases they put on the card compared to reference.

    Thanks for feeding us such news Vet :)
    Yeah, can't wait... if they release it in time, say in time for the holiday business, I might as well opt for them... it's just money after all. With that increased memory bus I think they'll go for 6GB again, which would be perfect I think. I'm almost anxious to see things develop in the next couple of weeks / months :funny:

    If a GTX 980 Ti comes out in January 2015 for the same price as my GTX 980 then I shall cry quietly! I bought a GTX 780 for £550 and three months later the GTX 780 Ti came out for the same price and was not only significantly faster, faster even than a GTX Titan, but my card dropped £200 in price.

    I really hope this doesn't happen again because otherwise people are going to say that I never learn!!! :(

    You want a hug? :D
    j/k, but that might very well happened. I wouldn't have thought so with the Keplers too, but expect the "worst", and it will happen with NV.

    Yeah, upgrading from the 780 or 290 series would be a complete waste of money. Although I will stick with AMD because it is what I prefer, it is good to see competition alive and well. I wonder how they actually managed to reduce the power consumption at load?
