    Re: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is "world's fastest gaming GPU"

    There may be a few grumbling recent GTX 1080 owners about! Fair play to Nvidia, the headroom they're able to find with this architecture is amazing. Not sure about the segmentation it causes with so many SKUs, but choice is good. Still too long till Vega to give some (hopefully) effective competition and push everything down a bit.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is "world's fastest gaming GPU"

    I love that they didn't even compare 1080Ti to the 980Ti, choosing the base 980 instead to get that "perfect slightly over 2/3x" mark of performance. Agreeing with 3s though, it's impressive how far they have come with minimal redesign. Must be easy to reiterate this arch on smaller lithography tech.

    Edit:

    I want to say #1, because the Titan now makes this look like really good value. So people eat them up. At nearly $700 a piece... It isn't a different core count, so not a bunch of failed Titan cores. Deliberate design.

    Huge performance, price drops, new boosts for existing cards. And series 11 only a few months away.

    Suddenly Vega looks a lot like someone arriving late to a party. Again...

    I don't like the way Nvidia are soaking up the early adopter cash by themselves and then allowing it's partners to release their own cards. If i was a partner of Nvidia this would heavily damage my relations with them everytime they do it

    It does display a huge amount of arrogance.
    Since AMD are currently not competing at that level I guess Nvidia's OEMs have no choice, but if Ryzen does well and AMD once again have a decent R&D budget (plus Vega does look like their biggest shake-up since the original GCN) this kind of think might make those OEMs rather keen to diversify.

    I'm all for price drops and all, but Nvidia isn't doing this because of the kindness of their hearts, just as how Intel suddenly dropped the prices on their chips due to Zen when they realised that the equivalent Zen chip was almost half the price, but it seems because they're starting to preempt some competition, finally!!

    We we're virtually bordering the £1K mark for a high end gaming card, so it's about time we had competition to get some price wars going on.

    I want to see some Vega benchmarks to see which gives me the best bang for buck rather than my previous approach of "shut up and take my money!"

    Its not cheap - but considering the price of the GTX1080 models could hit £600,it is a bit of an improvement there,and the GTX1080 is now starting at £500ish.

    Yes,because only in a fantasy world will Nvidia launch a GTX1080TI and replace it in three months with a new uarch card.

    Oh wait - no it isn't. If it was the case Nvidia would drop Titan X prices for a few months and then launch Volta.

    I'm not sure why some people seems to feel Nvidia owes them something / is a none profit organisation. Their strategy is to make money and they do it well. They also offer great products at a price people are more than happy to pay, because if they didn't there would be no sales and no profits.

    As for the founder edition being the only card for the 1st week. It's just 1 week. Those wanting 3rd party cards will simply wait 7 days. Many more people will wait to see all the reviews, then make a more informed decision.

    Hopefully EVGA will bust out a decent AIO watercooled version of this, it'll certainly be my next uograde if the 11 series isn't looming too close by that time - bargain 980Ti will be in the classifieds

    From what I've read elsewhere, this wasn't Intel's doing, it was just US dealer "MicroCenter" running their own discount scheme.

    Although, I fully expect the "range of price points" for non-FE cards to start in the mid-700s & go up from there!

    That's a terrible attitude to have. No they don't owe us something, apart from to not gouge us. The Founder's Day cards and the prices for this gen in general have been disgusting. Yes they're out to make money, but this is getting a bit Scrooge McDuckian

    As for the cards, yesterday I heard they were going to be £800, so I started looking into buying 2x1080s instead. Now I don't know what to do. I don't really want a Founders card, the cooling is awful, but the prices never drop afterwards, the partners always keep the prices inflated.

    But SLI seems to be going the way of the Dodo..

    If you think the card's too expensive, don't buy it. It's not like you need a GTX 1080 Ti. In fact, no-one needs a GTX 1080 Ti, so it's hardly gouging. They price it at what they think it's worth. People then make up their own minds whether it's worth it or not, and buy or don't buy accordingly.

    It's the fastest card available, so nvidia can price it however they want and people who think they need the fastest card available regardless of the price will buy it. People with a more pragmatic mindset will laugh at the price and buy something from lower down the range, accepting that means lower framerates, resolutions or image quality settings.

    But price gouging it ain't, since it's utterly unnecessary.
