Used value of previous kings 980/ 980ti /Titan X?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I have been in the high end computer world for about 7 years now, I took a serious interest in id say 2010 with my ATI 5870. For the very first time (or im just noticing it for the first time ) I think we are seeing a massive generation over generation leap from the 9 series to the 10 series cards from the green camp.

A $379 gtx1070 matches or beats a $1149 GTX Titan X in almost every single scenario thats thrown at it


This leaves me ( a scared owner of SLI 980s) wondering what the heck the used market is going to do with these last gen cards.

It leaves me baffled why these people are bidding over $600 for a Titan X on ebay when the 1070 out performs it for much less money.


Personally, this is where I think the used market should be right now on these cards.

GTX 970 $200

GTX 980 $240

GTX 980ti $300

Titan X $350


No one is more bummed about this than me, I bought my 980s used for $400 each then slapped a $100 waterblock on each. Ill be lucky if I get $480 for both my cards with the waterblocks included.

Im eyeballing a SLI 1070 setup with waterblocks and overclocking the snot out of them to replace my sli 980s.

If the new cards beat the old ones , for a few extra bucks go for it.
It should be faster and you get newer firm ware, which means that you may get better graphic out put. because the new hardware and sfotware may have imrpoved rendering engine, which means better graphics

Everywhere I've looked has the prices about 50-100 dollars more than what you have listed.

Keep in mind the Titan X at stock is a laughing stock in terms of performance, same with the 980 ti reference model. The Titan X has loads more overclocking headroom vs the 1070. Obviously the 1070 is a better bang for the buck, but in reviews where they OC both cards, even the 1080 is only about 10% faster than a 980 ti.

does that really make sense? Even with a 4k res the gain should be marginal...

I don't think we are, a 980ti/titan X is still faster than the 1070, at least when overclocked, pascal, at least as of now, doesn't have much headroom - it's already clocked skyhigh, Maxwell has plenty of OCing headroom. I just bought 2 980tis for 750 total last week, don't regret it in the slightest

might grab two of these actually $599 GTX1080s, slap water blocks on them and call it done.
