In which case, the new mid range parts were 5%-15% slower than the last top end single card at best. 8600 GTS in SLI was only marginally faster.

You are basing your opinion on recent history, which has been different than the historical norm.

Why even make it an option at that point, especially when it would be easier to keep up with demands to sell single card solutions? I guess we'll have to wait and see what's up. I'm just speculating for now.
Well, that and I think the hype train's heading for a rough finish. I don't think it'll be beating a 980 and I don't think it'll be beating the 480 out well to be better for the money. I think the board partners' 470s may give it serious fits for a lot less money. As you said though- just speculation for now.

Time and time again, the enthusiast market proves that a lot of people are willing to pay good money to be early adopters of the best new stuff. And that's because we like doing what we want with our money.

As for the 1060, if you dont like it, stop complaining and go buy the RX 480.

Which proves my point that "enthusiasts" these days = those with a lot of disposable income (and/or little sense) tongue.gif

Are we even certain that the GTX 1060 doesn't support sli or are we just going off of pictures of reference 1060's? That's an honest question, no sarcasm. There may be a possibility that 1060 performance levels and price would place them in sli at the exact same price/performance ratio as the 1080 (when they become more readily available). I dont see how limiting consumers to just one card is greedy.

That’s not the case, and would be crazy after the big push for a new SLI Bridge that NVIDIA made with the GTX 1080 launch. The GTX 1060, and we assume any future cards in this class, are not going to support multi-GPU technology.

Taking away choices from consumers is never a good thing. It doesn't necessarily imply greed but, as I said, there is no good non-business related reason for why 1060 lacks SLI support.

The one thing I'm the most curious about is if the 3rd party PCB ones are going to retain the absolutely idiotic "power plug is built into the cooler" bit, or if they'll be smart and leave it on the PCB for those who like to watercool.

Oh, and how well it runs Folding@Home, and for BOINC I'm curious about Collatz, Einstein@Home, GPUGrid, PrimeGrid, Poem, and whatever else I missed for projects....

EDIT: It also sucks that the price increase comes with a loss of SLI capability too.

It's sad really because when HD 290 came out it was $400 CAD. Now 3 years latter we get a GPU that is a bit faster for around the same price.

It's not nearly as simple as all that, though.

Back in Oct/Nov 2013 when the R9 290 came out the CAD was worth 0.88 USD, while it's currently only worth 0.77 USD (i.e. a 12.5% decline). So you have to factor in the lowered value of your CAD $400 in its own right and the inflationary pricing trend of GPUs (as denominated in USD) in general to make any judgments.

Well it does not really matter. Almost every country is suffering because of strong USD.

How is nVidia's driver support for their old cards? Say, after GTX 10XX is 2 or 3 years old?

Does nVidia keep updating them, or simply say "oh sorry just buy our new video cards"?

until next architecture they will keep optimizing for new games. once another architecture comes out kiss goodbye to any performance improvements. ( only general bug fixes )

Even current architecture doesn't really get as much performance gain % wise as amd cards do.
