you cant mean that
HBM2 is just 3 letters and a number, end performance is the most important thing, at 160% you would be drooling over it
true 160% would be pretty strong.
the new Titan X is 25-35% faster than GTX 1080. Even with HBM2 it would only be 30-38% faster.
A 160% faster new Titan X with GDDR5X over a GTX 1080 definitively sounds better than a 30-38% faster Titan X with HBM2.
But the reality is that the card is not 60% faster than a GTX 1080.
People have to decide for themselves, but I genuinely think that the card is way overprice, even for Nvidias standards.
1200$ for a cut card that is probably "just" 25-35% faster than a GTX 1080.
It doesn't sound right. If you have more brass than brains go for it, but if you need to take a credit/loan that money from someone I know I wouldn't do it. Turning settings a tad higher is not worth it to pay 1200$ for a product that might be bettered pretty fast.
But the card is going to sell well and sell out in the US like all Nvidia cards do.
