    I'm probably going for the 1070 myself, 1080 is a bit too much specially at 1080p/60/75fps.

    Guess i got to sell this R9 390 quickly before prices drop too much.

    everyone says get the Ti but with the standard 1080 costing 599, the Ti will likely be 799. That is pushing the limit of what i want to pay for a gpu. I cant see mself paying over 699 for a GPU so i will have to wait and see.

    Hopefully price goes down to 499 once '1080ti' equivalent is out.

    Why?
    the t/x was a really nice card if a 1kusd card could be nice

    the 970 and 980 ran the coarse pretty good topping the "other cards" for a good while.not even going to say how well they clock that's besides the point.

    if sure in a few months will will have smaller and bigger chips life is like that in tech

    if they can out bench a clocked t/x by a decent amount I might bite on one 1080,as For the F.E card I don't think they binned crap just a bios I bet maybe backplate unless that card has a 8p and a 6p but never know so going to have to wait for pbc shots :)
    thinking those ten70's are going to clock like snot for some reason:nerd:

    I'll wait for AMD's offerings and see how things go. I don't want a card that will age like milk.

    I think it has more to do with the fact this was rushed and yields still aren't great.. i bet the first 2-3 months the 1080 will be in very short supply.

    Also it's $50 not $100...

    GTX 980 Launch Price: MSRP $549
    GTX 1080 Launch Price: MSRP $599


    The $699 Founder's Edition doesn't really count... with that being a binned chip selected specifically for overclocking not surprised it costs more.


    Lastly I don't think we'll see a 1080Ti this year.. if they do will probably a severely cut-down version of the GP100 chip from batches that didn't meet the spec for the Tesla P100 using GDDR5X instead of HBM2. HBM2 is going to take a while to get affordable for consumer products.

    Thanks for that. The Founder's edition is basically people paying for TSMC bad yields, so I don't know what to say about it. With an infinite budget I would hit it for sure.

    The Ti is fine. It's expensive but you know what you get. The Titan X is just stupid, especially since it has NOTHING for people that really want compute (unlike the original Titan).

    Seems like 1500Mhz Core, 4000Mhz Memory 980-Ti have nothing to fear there.

    Now that my hyped went down a bit, i feel like taking the time and money selling my great -oc 980-ti to get a 1080 that at retail might give me less performance is a waste.

    Thinking about selling mine and safe that money for the next generation of cards, atm learning towards that 1070, but i guess waiting for AMD is the smart thing to do.

    Just afraid this R9 390 will be worthless soon in the coming days/weeks.

    Everyone speaking of 1080Ti while i don't see any point in wasting time and money on R&D and Marketing for a 1080-Ti while there's nothing from AMD that will compete with 1080 before Vega anyway.

    The 610mm2 die size Pascal card with HBM2 memory is the card i'm waiting for. But it'll be the 1180 or 1180-Ti ?...i guess.

    Dunno I really doubt we will see big Pascal this year, first they have to milk mid-range perf chip to the max..Its been like that since Kepler..

    I think 1080ti GP100 variant will be released next year in February - March time frame, most likely Titan first then normal 1080Ti later in summer.

    well to be honest I kinda knew it was gonna be like that since the beginning.:nerd:


    Well dunno, I saw it here..

    Well, i wouldn't call it 'milk', afterall their cards already kill any game, but reflects exactly my thought ^^.

    The 610mm2 die size Pascal won't be released before 2017. (time-frame between 980 and 980-Ti was 10months for instance)

    Meanwhile i can't wait to find how better is 1080 compared to OC-ed 980-TI//Titan-X.
    I feel it's gonna be marginal but who knows? :p

    I'll see how it stands up to my 980 SLI before I throw down the money. I'm planning on going with a single card this time around and upgrading to SLI later if needed. Seeing as support for MultiGPU setups in recent games has been non existent (and the lack of in DX 12) I don't see the point in dropping $1200 on 2 GPU's.

    I would think based on what we know now, that the leaked 3DMark results @ ~1800mhz is accurate. Which means that yeah, at stock, a 1080 is roughly the same as an overclocked 980Ti (You are the one that showed us that :p). That being said, we also saw the 1080 overclock to ~2100mhz. Which is about a 15% improvement and we know that generally Nvidia's architecture scales very linearly with clock speed.

    So I'd say that an overclocked 1080 is about 15% faster then a overclocked 980Ti.

    The other issue is resolution scaling. Someone with a 980Ti and 4K/DSR should decrease memory speed to roughly the 1080 memory performance and see what that does to 4K performance. It's not much different, but I have a feeling the 1080's memory bandwidth might limit it in 4K in some situations. I also have a feeling that the 1080's memory won't be as overclockable as previous chips. Micron has 12GHz GDDR5x modules available, yet Nvidia has these modules clocked at 10. I'm not sure why, but something tells me it's because it's not stable at 12, maybe because of early yields as GDDR5x is literally hot off the line.

    Hopefully the rumors are true and review sites will get these in the next few weeks and we see more of what the card offers.
