Actually it should cost $199 as GTX 260,460,560,660 and 960 all cost $199.

Most likely in August.Atleast one month wait.$550(7970) performance for $150 biggrin.gif
Or if you want to be more subtle then $230(R9 380X) performance for $150.

You do know in 2 months, the 980 will become 2 years old?

It may be awhile before that happens.
Might be lucky and it could happen when the entire AMD and Nvidia line up comes out.
The 980ti's are about 350$ at the moment, so 980's should be about 250. With the 1060's coming out, it may knock both the 980 and 980ti down

The real threat comes from AIB 1060s that start at $250, and believe me there's more than one model and AIB at that price. To wit:

What the literal crap. Is this real? NVIDIA custom cards sold at MSRP in launch week? There's 6 of them! Six custom GTX 1060s for $249. What is going on? Why won't this happen with the GTX 1070?! SIGH.

What....the quality of OCN posts just tanks during these hardware launches. The GTX 1060 is a decent UPgrade if you own a GTX 960 / 770 or lower. Anything slower than that and it'll be a good-sized upgrade.

Yeah, holy crap, what's up with OCN? I've had this for like a week now. Nothing's submitting, but then submitting later? Admin pls.

Well, not exactly. Just, this time NVIDIA did the overclocking for us. I mean, 2GHz GPUs? That's a pretty solid clocking. Would you have preferred they sell 1500MHz GPUs and then we OC them ourselves to 2GHz? BTW, it seems in line with most other GPUs excluding the 980 Ti & Titans, which are monster overclockers.

To be fair about pricing, inflation cuts the value of currency by roughly half every 20-30 years (or at least that seems to be the trend ever since World War 1). So a card aiming for the same price bracket as 10 years ago should cost over 30% more.
The best example of a company falling into the trap of not compensating for inflation is Nintendo, the GameCube had the same sticker price as the original NES 15 years before, making it the cheapest console Nintendo ever released. Consumers like stability, but in reality you're getting a progressively weaker product with every generation that the price stays the same, over time that can really hurt the value of a product when all of a sudden it seems like the same thing is vastly underperforming compared to past expectations.

TLDR: Inflation sucks and Nvidia has to increase prices to continue offering a compelling product.

Despite everything I wrote above, it looks like the 470 is the going to be the winning card this generation. On paper it's basically a binned 480, only about 15% worse but it's 25% cheaper, and more importantly the total cost goes down to a near casual spending price bracket.
I don't know how AMD can ship something like that and still make money, but that's at least double the performance per dollar compared to last gen GPU's.

If it isn't totatlly broken somehow I'm going to be buying these things like candy (upgrading old/spare computers).

post #1169 of 1449
Still running my old 7950 Windforce 3 and strongly considering going to a RX480 with my new job. Price/performance with good performance in general is very important to me. After reading what info I can about the 1060, it also seems like a good value, but the 480 is edging ahead. Great to see all the competition, hopefully there will be even better deals once Black Friday and the holiday season roll around when I'm ready to buy. I'm due for a whole new PC at this point lol.

First few hours of launch a few available at $249, after that only the overpriced $300 like ones are left. Typical Pascal supply issues and price hike.
August 2017.
The $250 cards were never available to purchase. Most cards "launched" out of stock.

Edit: I was wrong, apparently there were some available.

Face it AMD supporters, going by the review numbers 1060 will be faster in 90% of the games you've got on your PC, maybe even more than that, draw less power, run a lot cooler and be a lot quieter. Unless all you've got on your PC is aots,hitman and warhammer lachen.gif
so if you're into impulse buying? Why would you not wait? If you are into that you can spend $300 on a reference card, or see if the $310-330 Asus cards are available. Even if you're set on a 1060, you should wait till the "dust settles".


I think it's funny that nvidia enthusiasts claim the 480 is equal to the 970 and the 1060 is so much better when the average difference between the 480 and 970 (8%) is larger than the difference between the 1060 and 480 (7%) at 1080p.
