The die itself is about 50% bigger than GM204/the GTX 980. If you think a "bigger" version of Maxwell is coming out as a the 980Ti or GTX 1080, you're going to be waiting forever for a card that will never come. The only way Nvidia releases another Maxwell card is by cutting down GM200 to a 6GB VRAM variant, with slightly less performance than a Titan X.

Not sure why people refer to discretionary consumer spend as an "investment"? Is anyone expecting an IRR off this spend? LOL. tongue.gif

Yeah, I keep seeing "gpu" and "investment" in the same sentence and I laugh each time.

If you really want to be sure, wait for Fiji. Worst case, nothing happens. Like case, small price-drop on titan x. Best case, Fiji beats titan for less $, starting a price-war. Waiting seems to be a better "investment" than buying right now.

I guess the best way to look at it is this; We are getting a better and faster more technologically advanced card, with a new fully unlocked chip, more VRAM, more transistors and more CUDA cores etc. All for the same price as the older model, ergo MORE for the SAME.

The price has remained the same, yet we are getting more bang for our buck. Just like everything in life - quality does not come cheap, if it did then we would all be driving around in Ferrari's!!! LOL

In life you only get what you pay for and there will always be those who are prepared to pay a premium to have the best things. I'm sure we will see a cut down version in a few months bridging the gap between the 980 and the Titan X. Which will obviously be cheaper and aimed at the mass market, rather the the smaller group of people who just want the best and fastest card available and who are willing to pay the premium to have just that!!! wink.gif

More for the same doubled prices we've had since Kepler, anyways...

In all honesty, I suspect that you are essentially right - prices have doubled, they're not going to change back, so we now have to just live with it - ergo "more for the same". But Kepler was a "more for more" generation that shifted the pricepoints up dramatically.

this was my original plan but until now we don't know anything about Fiji and how long AMD need to release this gpu

8k isn't needed.

There are limits to visual perception, and 4k is pushing it. 4k for a desktop display has some benefit, but 4k TVs in most use cases are not actually providing a better picture. 8k is way, way beyond those limits.

More may be better for transistor count, but it's not always better for pixels.

+1. People say this about their brand new BMWs and other nicer cars as well. rolleyes.gif I've owned a few nice cars, but I always try to buy used first so I don't take that massive first year depreciation hit. thumb.gif Unfortunately with video cards, to have the best you can't wait a year or two. I love a great deal, probably more than most people, but sometimes you just gotta pay to play. smile.gif
