post #6151 of 6175


I guess that means Vega is definitely a long way ......
wonder if nvidia will drop 1080Ti just in time Vega takes on 1080, like they did with 980Ti before Fury X

In all seriousness, what makes me sad about the 1080 is that they could've priced reference at the 980's release price and even the staunchest of Team Red fanboys would've lauded it as an amazing value. The whole FE business is the real killer here...

more like 25%, and 1080 FE cost me $30 over 980's MSRP of $550

Actually everybody who bought 1080s is at profit now- having looked at foreign exchange markets after Brexit we are gonna see massive price hikes across Europe.

14, but it's the same size actually, just a diff. name for 20nm-size. smile.gif It did happen - we have half the chip size with same performance. Full chip is 40% faster than 1080. smile.gif

Nvidia cards come to Europe from USA, not UK. Same applies to UK - they won't see change in that regard. The only thing is that UK products will get a price jump significantly since GBP to EUR fell down like a rock.

Regarding prices, EU prices of 1080 go for 750-950 and 1300 for water-cooled model. 980Ti is at 500. That's why it's really hard to discuss price/performance value with Americans that obviously have different prices and a completely different market situation.

MSRP prices of imported goods are set in USD and re-calculated in the local currencies so if GBP/USD is 8-10% weaker overnight, prices of USD-denominated goods in UK will be adjusted higher accordingly. EUR/USD is 5% weaker while local non-EUR currencies some 5-8% weaker vs USD so expect 5-10% hikes across Europe.

Hopefully that will stabilize, at least EUR will...

The pump usually resides in the block, unless you go with something like this...

When the history judges England for what will inevitably occur in Europe, so it is said that it all began with this quote "Let them play video games" Corbyn....

No, there is not.

But the thread is still a resource for people looking for 1080 information so going off in different directions of discussion does nothing to help that.
