    With cards selling at £200-£300 over MSRP, I'm not surprised.

    Also with the issues RTG have had in the consumer space,Nvidia is not even being pushed and improvements have slowed down for the average gamer too.

    Rumours have started of "Ampere" having taped out: https://wccftech.com/nvidia-ampere-g...unching-april/

    Though I still don't get the GTX 2080 naming rumour. I don't generally count 7, 8, 9, 10, 20.

    For anyone buying a sub £300 card this year even at normal prices,I hope Ampere is out this year. We can't rely on AMD anymore as they really have screwed up with their dependence on HBM2. They never learnt the first leason from Fiji,and Nvidia being more conservative have.



    The R9 290 4GB could be had for around £300 in January 2014:

    https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/xfx...9-dabs-1806889

    Faster non-reference ones dipped under £300 in Q2 2014 and these were quicker:

    https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/msi...amazon-1875624

    Then we had the GTX970 which was even cheaper later in the year.

    At £300ish and under for 4 years,we had only a 20% to 25% increase in performance in the most important segment for graphics cards.

    Compare that to the GTX970 launch.



    That is the four years before the GTX970. The GTX570 and HD7870 had similar performance,so at least a doubling under £300.

    I feel unless AMD get some good improvements,we are going to see the same issue with when AMD gave up on desktop,more drip fed improvements.

    The GTX1060 uses a GPU around 200MM2,and the GTX970 GPU was closer to 400MM2. There is room for a big performance bump,as Nvidia has enough space to make one.

    This is why Nvidia profits have been going up even before mining.

    Maybe,Ampere will surprise us,but I am sceptical as in the end they could just make the chip slightly bigger,refine the clockspeeds a bit more and give us 20% extra performance,and AMD won't be able to compete,as it will cut more and more into Vega gaming sales,unless OFC AMD rejigs its own lineup too,and refines performance.

    Edit!!

    As I said a few years ago(and maybe some others),Nvidia splitting their lines at Maxwell,has really helped them,and AMD is still trying the kitchen sink approach with their GPUs,which means larger GPUs,worse power consumption,lower clockspeeds,etc as AMD pushes them to the edge to just compete. Nvidia is basically doing what ATI did to them with the "small die" strategy with their more consumer focused GPUs,but to AMD instead. Its quite ironic TBH!!

    I just hope any increased pro sales makes up for it.
