[TT] NVIDIA should launch its next-gen Pascal GPUs with HBM2 in 2H 2016 - Page 43

post #421 of 724
I don't think nvidia can afford to price HBM2 cards $100+ higher than the initial price of the current generation, no matter what kind of jibber jabber they say. I doubt enthusiasts will pay the premium if the cards aren't SIGNIFICANTLY faster because of it.

enthusiast always will buy expensive cards. Nvidia has many loyal enthusiast who are ready to spend big if that means they get the best card.

The mainstream, where the money is at, on the other hand is probably not ready to pay another 100$ extra and that is why I expect the mainstream-performance cards to not come with HBM.

Titan X sold like hotcakes, so no enthusiasts will gladly throw another $300 at nVidia even for 5-10% of extra performance.

yep.

I remember before the Titan X was released there were rumors floating around that it might cost 1350$ and some people on OCN were actually fine with it and ready to spend it without thinking twice about it.

And after Titan X dropped at "just" $999 I swear I remember several members exclaiming it was a good deal. rolleyes.gif

Really wouldn't be surprised if nVidia intentionally leaked the fake $1350 number for price conditioning. rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif

the x70 series is as highend as mainstream reaches, and that's only because the 970 was a little cheaper than usual x70 parts. the x70 part will most likely be $400 again, that will push it out of main stream. Lets also not forget that as far as Nvidia is concerned the GTX 1080 will absolutely be the best of the best.... until they release the actual best sometime later. So if you think the flagship cards will have HBM2 then the GTX1080 is that card, unless they go bananas and actually release the GeForce version of big pascal first.

Yeah I wonder how many times we get to see Jen Hsun Huang this time around going on stage and presenting the "Best graphics card we have ever made" to us.

I lost count with Kepler and Maxwell, but I am pretty sure he is getting used to his presenting pose by now biggrin.gif

You guys are forgetting that 1000€ for a GPU is nothing for many people.
