This is what I'm hoping for too but the wait is going to suck and it's going to perform probably 20% less than Titan 2, no?
Titan 2 (28nm)---> 3-4 months later ---> GTX 1080 (28nm, 20% slower than Titan 2)---> Q4 2015 ---> GTX 1080Ti full chip (if on 28nm, 15% faster than Titan 2, if on 16nm, 30-40% faster) ---> 1 month later Titan 2 Black (full chip 16nm)
If it's going to play out like last time, we're getting Titan 2 and months later a 20% slower GTX 1080, and if we wait much longer we might get a 15% faster (compared to Titan 2) GTX1080Ti or 30-40% faster 1080Ti if it's on 16nm.
My problem: I don't want to pay a grand for Titan 2, I don't want a crippled version of the GTX 1080, so I have to wait for the fully unlocked, 16nm, non-Titan verison. Only problem with that is I'd have to wait a year.
How do you think it's going to play out, and which version are you waiting for? Crippled 1080 or full 1080Ti, possibly on 16nm?
