    There are a couple of "preview reviews" around, literally, 1 or 2 (one of these is an SLi review from a pc builder).

    Looks to be 20% faster or so than 1080.

    I should probably hide now that I'm gonna say - I've bought one. Time to sell the Ti's!

    I'm going to buy one. Screw it. Hang it on my wall. A testament to my unwavering desire to spend money on devices that are obsolete within a year.

    Honestly if you drop it on water and clock it to 2ghz it's probably going to be 30-35% faster then 1080.

    So vs a GTX 1080 they're basically offering another 9 fps on average but are charging double the price for the privilege . F*** off nvidia...

    Even more expensive than previous with a meagre 15-20% boost. Wow.

    I'm thinking a second 1070 is money better spent.

    Good thing Nvidia doesn't ship this one to my country. Otherwise I might be tempted to order one.
    That said, it seems to be wiser to wait for the Pascal refresh with HBM2 anyhow or at the very list, see what the big Vega will bring to the table.

    Well if its only 20-30% faster than a 1080, that effectively kills any prospect of a 1080Ti.

    Where have they got left to go?, there isn't a big enough gap between a 1080 and a Titan X for a Ti to be of any relevance.

    Not the video card that will give you 60+ fps at 4K with all the bells and whistles turned on , single video card to run 4k 60+ fps not yet here ,it does not exist. I will wait for Big Vega and Volta :/ , h8ting @ the waiting game ...

    Well, in my opinion those 10-20% doesn't worth additional 100-120% in price.

    They could do a 1080Ti, make it identical to Titan X and disable all the compute stuff and sell it for cheaper. But I mean ultimately, Volta is supposed to launch next year (in compute form at least) -- so maybe we won't be getting any more until next series.

    The 980Ti was just slightly slower than the Titan X Mk1, half the memory and a hell of a lot cheaper.

    They sold a fair few of them. Though this card looks like it will actually perform in professional applications instead of riding on the original Titans laurels

    I must say Nvidia have impressed me with their 1080 offering, but this seems too little for the large amount of extra cash needing to be laid down.

    It all gives my the feeling that AMD's big Vega with it's substantially larger transistor count and smaller process has a good chance to finally upset the apple cart and establish a new King of the GPUs.

    If AMD can produce a Good card capable of more or less sustained 60fps at 4k they will have a winner on their hands and I will certainly buy one :)

    Congrats guys, keep us informed of your experiences :D
    And yeah, I'm very curious to see the bigger chip being watercooled, how it affects boost clocks and stability.


    That's what I'm wondering too... I expected some bigger difference somewhat, but the TI being a cutdown Titan, still sounds possible (not guaranteed though).

    So for me it comes down to... 1080TI, or Volta :banana:

    I was just kidding, I'm not buying it.

    If i had a 4K 144hz display I probably would, but at QHD the 1080 basically slays all the games I play.

    Ehhh, first Titan I'm going to pass on. Had the itch and picked up 2x1080 FE's and they're fantastic, but there was always a nice ring to having a "Titan."

    Meh, whatever. More $$$ for the $trip clubs.
