Imho Titan X and GTX 1080 being roughly the same speed would be a gigantic failure.
die shrink, new architecture. it just can't be.
We need a jump and AMD/Nvidia know this. They want to push VR, they want to push 4K. Disappointing 10-20% increases won't do.
I am way too stubborn anyways. For me to be interested in the new NVIDIA/AMD gpus this year they have to be :
500$ GPU has to be 40% better than current 980 Ti or I am not even remotely interested.
650$ GPU has to be 60% better than current 980 Ti or I am not even remotely interested.
I have no idea why some people are careful/conservative with what they except. For gods sake we have 2016 and we are jumping from 28nm to 16/14nm. This should be the big jump we have been expecting and sought for for so long.
