Wait for GTX 800 Series or go for a 700 Series (I know little info about the 800 series)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I am in need of a new GPU and it seems like everytime I am so close to making a decision, which I was gonna do before November 5th, I find some bit of info which changes my mind on which vendor or something. Now I read about the GTX 800 series having a ARM chip with their GPUs. I have a i7 3770k @ 4.1Ghz so I am in no way slacking with a CPU, but does anyone know how much of a performance increase it should have over the 700 series counterparts? I wanted a new GPU in early November, but I can and would hold out if these new GPUs are ridiculously better. I know the 700 series was a little refresh and not anything really 'new'. I am sure some people will read this thread title and still think I am posting some info about the 800 series, but this is infact the opposite haha

Yeah, I meant to mention that I knew that, which is kinda why I could wait, 3-4 months (from November) isn't so long. I just can't really see a ARM chip on the GPU doing much for anyone currently using a quad-core though. There's a bunch of AMD talk about their new stuff and increases numbers, but I saw only Nvidias 800 series having that ARM chip. Yeah it can increase FPS for people with slower CPU's, but that's not what I want and I doubt (also hope) that that isn't what Nvidia wants to accomplish with that lol
