    So no Pascal refresh? 3/4 of a price would be sweet, just like with GTX285. And Volta is sheduled for next year?

    i have seen other sites speculating on a 320 bit bus, so that could also be possible..

    That generally goes hand in hand. It's not cheap to develop this kind of cutting edge technology. It takes experts and material resources, both of which cost money. I imagine there are people who also love what they are doing and aren't only doing it for money (talking about tech companies other than Intel), but they still require a compensation equal to their skills. Nvidia has lots of money, so they can hire a lot of brains and allow them to experiment a lot. AMD is lacking money, so they will have to do with less, meaning it takes longer. Even if the single researches were just as competent, it becomes different if one company has 10 and the other 100 of them.

    It is 2017, quite some time after "4GB vram doom" people came. And I am yet to see stutter caused by full vram.

    When "3GB vram doom" came, I did my testing:
    In FS mode, game has "all" vram for itself as unnecessary stuff is unloaded.
    So I tested in windowed mode. It took me to load 7 good looking maxed out games to get into point where stutter came due to vram utilization.

    Yes, yes. Stupid 4k Skyrim textures happen. They cost arm and leg in vram, but deliver visual improvement only at very close range.

    VRAM utilization is not going to be end of my quite powerful GPU, it will be either complex shader code or high polygon count. Same way as always.

    If we looked at history, and compiled list of reasons why each GPU became obsolete, you would maybe, just maybe found GTX 680 2GB as a GPU which faced true vram caused stutter before it did run out of horsepower.
    But main historical reasons for High End GPUs to become obsolete:
    Shader Throughput, then Polygon Throughput, then DX support too low (mainly in time of jumps from DX7 to 8, 8.1, 9.0~9.04).

    for AMD as long they can release "value" from performance/price, they should be fine
    say if they can release 1070ti-like performance but like 100bucks cheaper it will selling like cakes anyway

    i dont think amd pursuing "KING" of gpu title
    not for now at least, they seems just focusing on ryzen launch for now
    even though gpu division is completely separate from cpu

    Yes about that Pascal refresh / Volta thing I was wondering too... not sure how they'll handle it, probably a few refresh models in H2/17, but in 2018 eventually Volta is supposed to launch afaik.


    Ah, thanks for the insights!


    I'm with you on this one. Still playing happily at 1440p with (2x) 4GB VRAM, haven't found any stuttering due to a lack of VRAM.

    I've experienced it with my trusty by then 580 Lightning 3GB VRAM and Skyrim's 4K textures for 1080p, but I've never tried it with 4GB VRAM. But I can safely say, for instance, Shadow of Mordor's HD textures do not need 6GB VRAM, they run just fine on my system at 1440p with no issues.

    They share same IP and cooperate. That's why GPUs and CPUs using Infinity Fabric will be released at same time.

    Before they were not clearly separated, yet APUs took 4 years to finally move from VLIW4 to GCN iGPUs.
    Now, they are separated and use newest and greatest from both divisions.

    Now this may be a worthy upgrade.. The 1080 just didn't cut it

    So Nvidia's profits will now Quadruple when all the FOMO Sheep rush out to buy this when it's released :D The eye candy whores and framerate freaks will no doubt be drooling over hardly noticeable visual improvements and a few extra FPS @ 4k, while proper gamers will just :rolleyes: at them :)

    Don't bet on that.

    Remember Fury X launch price compared to 980 TI price on...and performance.

    Everything will depend on Vega's price/performance ratio, but for this launch cycle I get this feeling that is NVIDIA who is late with their new stuff.

    Great news ! I will wait until Vega comes out to compared them two since i'm in no rush to upgrade just yet as my GTX 1070 is doing fine for the games i play at 4K , then and then only i will upgrade to one of this 2 video cards ( GTX 1080Ti or Vega ) . I need to see performance of this 2 cards gaming at 4K in reviews to make a well informed decision.

    Yup, thats the correct thing to do.
    For me not an option, due to my monitor. However for someone building a new Rig, might as well make it full AMD this yeah as Ryzen seems hell of a promising thingy. Unless Intel will SIGNIFICANTLY drop prices on their 8 core CPU's.

    Yeah, and probably less than a year until a brand new GPU comes out, buying a 1080ti would be just silly. Those who dont care about money and throw them at.. whatever new comes out probably have a titan already, for the rest, unless it's someone in need of a new GPU and cant wait... Well anyway, maybe i'll get a 2nd hand 1080 now with a few here selling them off cheapish hopefully. Profit for me i guess :nerd:
    Maybe i'm the stupid one here, but releasing a 1080ti at this point in time just seems silly (or rather buying one would be)
