[Hexus] Nvidia culling prices of premium 900-series GeForce GPUs

post #1 of 177

Dropped by a huge amount.

Now that stock of GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition cards has started to trickle into the channel and with custom-cooled cards due to arrive in the next week or so, Nvidia has finally taken the pricing hammer to premium GeForce GTX 900-series cards that no longer make sense at the previous prices.

Still a really crappy deal IMO. I'd bite at $330-350. It just doesn't make sense to shell out $400 on a previous generation card with only 6GB of ram with a bit bus that isn't even 512. Neaup.

Especially since the 1070 matches it, why would you not just buy the 1070 when it comes out?

Because it's a cut-down mid-range die on a 256 bit bus that OCs worse than the 980 Ti rolleyes.gif

980ti has more CUDA cores an is faster in stuff like PHotoshop etc.

The prices on 1070s are going to be pretty absurd for some time to come. Don't expect MSRP for a while.

That's a naive, emotional response. If a cut down mid-range die on a 256 bus can match or beat a 980 Ti, then it would be silly to not get the 1070. Do you have en emotional connection with the 980 Ti?

These maxwell cards are still wayy overpriced. Let says the 1070 will be $379 at launch, make it $389 with dealer markup.... ok so $389. That card is about 25-26% faster than a GTX980 for $324.. If that's keeping in line with performance the 1070 would then be $405 not $379-389...

Very good points. The launch of the RX 480 will continue to depress the value of Maxwell cards.

Totally agree. If the 480 can be on par performance wise with a 970, possibly OC to the speed of a 980 with 8GB vram for $229...it wouldn't make sense to go elsewhere... I'm just interested on how well they can OC and their power consumption numbers. Heck if it uses 50w less than my 970 and can do 10% better...might be worth it.
