True story, I have a buddy that his client (although 980TI had already dropped) chose to SLI 2 Titan X's instead of just 2 980 TI,s performance/price didn't matter

Yeah, I know it's part of their strategy to maximise profits. The best bang for the bucks cards comes later... Torture is what it is.

1080 similar perfomance to gtx 980 ti and titan x ?
Makes no sense to me.
Why anyone should buy those card if the performance are the same as the old generation ?

Hope for nvidia that this is not true. I aspect 4k@60 fps with one single card this time.

980 Ti and Titan X are the same generation.

I'm pretty sure they are referencing the part of the linked article that says the upcoming '1080', for want of a better term, will be roughly equivalent in performance to 980Ti and Titan X. i.e. the newer generation's 980 won't surpass the 980ti and Titan X exponentially.

Just like people who bought a 980 that already owned a 780Ti. The 980 was barely faster than the 780Ti at launch, but used much less power. And now the 980 is a good 10-15% faster than a 780Ti in some instances. Same might hold true for the 1080 over the 980Ti as Pascal drivers improve.

I have a big bang house. I had all the materials for my new house brought in and dumped on a vacant lot. I took a stick of dynamite, lit the fuse on fire and tossed it into the pile of materials. BOOM went the explosion and when the dust settled I had a new house! Amazing isn't it? rolleyes.gif

Honestly at this point, I am really looking to say "goodbye" to any form of dual-gpu card / Crossfire / SLI setup and just say "hello" to the Titan X successor with HBM2 even if it does cost $1,299 or whatever. More and more developers / driver manufacturers are just forgetting or leaving out dual+ GPU support. So I am quite excited about the prospect of a "1.5x to 1.8x performance" Titan X successor.

Also, I am excited to upgrade my current LG 34" 3440 x 1440p monitor in favor of their upcoming 37.5" 3840 x 1600p monitor that will be releasing in Q3 2016.

I'm taking this rumour/news thing with a reasonable pinch of salt, though it does seem plausible. We do know Pascal was due to drop sometime this year. For me April/June would be great.

My present machine is based on Sandybridge-E with a GTX 780 Ti. I am assembling components for my new build and I am planning to wait until April anyway for Broadwell-E. If Pascal starts rolling out at the same time, it would suit me right down to the ground. I'd be able to skip the GTX 900 generation and jump straight to Pascal which should be even more 4K capable.

Broadwell E isn't coming out until June.
