I could easily see this card going for $799 and $899 founders edition. Or $899-$999
My 1080 will be the last for a while. I am about to just say F pc gaming at this point. Hell the way its going. Just release new cards every 6 months. For get the yearly or 2 year release windows. Pretty sure Nvidia is heading this route now and testing the waters.
Yes they are releasing s*it quite frequently and prices are going so ridiculously higher, with the value of older GPUs evaporating in a matter of months, but why do you feel the need of having to constantly keep up with new releases? if you have a GPU that is giving you adequate performance why not keep it for two or three years before upgrading?
Nvidia is pushing it way too far with its pricing but it is not their fault, AMD is not giving them a good competition so they can practically do whatever they want, i always keep thinking why is it only Nvidia and AMD in the desktop GPU market, why isn't their a 3rd and a 4th manufacturer to keep the market competitive? is it impossible to even consider entering the GPU market at this point even for huge organizations like Intel for example?
