    You'd have to be bat flight mental to buy this now. I can't see it being too long until their next big release.

    I don't really understand why you wouldn't just buy a 1080

    Why wouldn't Nvidia just lower the price of the 1080?

    £419... this is the issue with performance monopoly.
    1060 £179 er YES - fair enough for entry level
    1070 £349 er no - £249-269 seems about right for nearly dbl the stream processors
    1070TI £419 Er nope - £299 its only slightly faster
    1080 £479 er no AGAIN - £349 performance over 1070 gen just abt justifies it but nothing more
    1080TI £679 Daylight Robbery - £399 all day long. Anything over this for a non commercial grphx card is just stupid. Why? 1: Still cannot play 4k with all the bells on 2: Volta exists now (Tesla V100) they just didn't have any sort of competition from Vega/AMD to react and bring it forward 3: £679 will buy you a decent top tier Z370 or X370 MB, I5 or Ryzen 7, 16gb memory and even an (albeit basic) case for the same cost. Perhaps it's because I am old school and remember my first 3dfx glide add in card to get 3d. That was worth paying for - the increments shown by the cards above no no and no - give me a card that plays 4k at 100 FPS and I'd happily pay the best part of £700 because that would be a game changer and would warrant it - until then I ain't no cows teet stop trying to milk me - rant over

    If you have an old old card just replace it if you paid same value back then... otherwise don't bother about it at all.

    Vega or 1070ti.. doesn't matter too much either unless focusing on minimal gains or am buying complete new hardware for the first time in years... more competetion on the market would be nice as it is.. as am not in favour if either green or red team... all depends on what is best when I have to buy.

    No good moaning about the prices when so many people keep on paying. A company cannot charge more than their customers are prepared to pay. BTW, I bought my Evga GTX 970 in June of last year, when the prices were well down.

    You hit the nail on the head here!

    I Member when the 8800 GT came out at £179 what monster that was compared to the cost of it previous cards and cards after.

    I get that companies have to make a profit but prices are far to high at the moment. If they reduced the cost maybe people would buy a card from every generation and they would make more money in the long run.

    Purely to squeeze out AMD, to hold on to the GPU monopoly. AMD's Threadripper is just what I need and have bought (does 4GHz on all cores without breaking a sweat and will probably go 4.2GHz, it did in the BIOS before I changed it on first boot). I have played Wolfenstein 2 all day in 4k with 6 cores... My GPU is nVidia - MSI 1080Ti Gaming X (£730 ouch, same as my CPU) - well fast...

    As someone who is about to buy a 1080 would anyone suggest against it? i'm sitting on a gtx 670 still and simply need an upgrade. Destiny 2 is also free with a 1080 at the moment which helps ease the pain of spending £535 on the one i want.(msi gaming x plus). what would you do? also, do you think prices will lower anytime soon? I feel like i've been waiting so long for an upgrade. and it also feels like no time is a good time to upgrade because everything is improving constantly.

    GM might be worth waiting for black friday? However that MSI is a good card with high clocks. If you are hell bent on buying a high clock 1080 now then the Gigabyte G1 gaming with even higher clocks is £499 on both Scan and Overclockers - Hexus did a nice review on it if you search the archives

    Re: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Ti launches, arrives 2nd Nov

    Was looking to buy a 1080 about a week ago as I seen they were getting to the lower end of £400. Since the release of the 1070ti the prices have jumped up again?

    I guess I'll wait a bit longer....

    The thing is the market is so distorted ATM it's making a mockery of what most people would consider 'normal', the prices of 1060 and 1080 have fallen at etailers by almost £100 whereas the 1070's have pretty much remained at launch prices, i understand the reasons behind early adopter and high end 'taxes' but for a higher-mid range card to remain at launch price for so long sucks.
