    Is the author sure those "already released" cards should be labelled "Titanium X", and not "Titan X"?

    Assuming this is true, it is interesting that they are launching now rather than making off like bandits with their massively overpriced 1080 for another couple of months (not that I blame them, it is AMD's fault that they only managed two small Polaris chips where nVidia managed a full lineup).

    On those predicted specs this will be faster than the Titan X once it gets custom coolers from the AIBs, so I guess nVidia have decided that this is about as good as the 1080 Ti will get. Releasing now will either beat Vega before it is even released, or will give the 1080Ti a couple of months of pricing as an uncontested performance king before Vega challenges/beats it.

    Now to see if Vega is a success or not. I have a feeling it will be a "not", but I could be pleasantly surprised.

    I like everything I've seen about Vega (efficiency gain and vastly improved clock rate especially), but like you I'm feeling cynical. That said, AMD have already surprised a lot of people with the reach of Ryzen's performance, lack of verification notwithstanding.

    I have noticed that certain countries actually refer to the Titans as Titaniums. AquaComputer always refer to them as Titaniums.

    To be honest I can see nvidia 'rebranding' the current titan (minor clock tweaks) as the gtx 1080 ti and then making a new titan based off the quadro gp100 with the 16GB of HBM memory.

    Nvidia are bringing HBM2 memory with the top 11 series cards and then further into the range with the 12's.

    Does it really matter?

    I mean, this card is only going to be purchased by a select few % willing to drop (at least) £700 on a GPU.

    The only relevance I can see it having for the vast majority of gamers is if it has a knock on effect of dropping prices on the 1080 & 1070 cards.

    9 months after launch they're certainly due a price cut.

    The price, on this part, will probably be higher than the previous gen. nVidia, or any company, only want to increase the price each gen with limited gains. That's business. If we keep on buying the price will keep on rising. Fools and their money... . I'm still using a second hand 980 and would change but the second hand prices are still quite high and, in all honesty, how much these things should cost BRAND NEW.

    'Twas ever thus. Still at least your second hand money is helping fund someone else's first hand purchase. It's worked like that for years with cars

    Jesus, seems even Nvidia got sick of waiting for AMD to release Vega.
