Funny how these articles start popping up the day Polaris 2.0 shows up!

If they were sitting on stock waiting for Vega to release the 1080ti/Xp, they have to dump them on the market if they're less than 2Q away from the release of a new architecture. Fortunately for Nvidia they can afford an entirely new product stack, so why not make some more money before cashing in on a new series just a few months later.

OR... *puts tinfoil hat on*

BS fake alt news to overhype Vega and lead to unfairly deserved disappointment later on

I wonder if the big ~500mm die size chip will be faster than 1080 SLI?

Well, if this is actually true, then it gives me hope for Vega. However, at the same time, the fact that NVidia will have close competition gives me less hope in their (AMD) chances of reclaiming market share in a meaningful manner.

I'd say you are doing it wrong. Wait 2-4 years on buying new games. Then buy ganes for $5-10 on steam sales. Upgrade GPU's every 4 years or so. My 780's are 4 years old now this month, but I got them for $250 each last year. thumb.gif

Right, 980 ti to 1080 ti is literally DOUBLE the performance yet you all say they are milking us. 

 

THERE is always gonna be something new coming out down the road.

I don't think the 1080 To is what they're referring to. More the FE (de facto MSRP) prices of the 04s and the two new $1200 Titans. NV is trying to encourage a very profitable upgrade cycle for high end buyers.

680->780/Ti->980->980 Ti->1080->1080 Ti.

Even better if Titans factor in somewhere in the 30% uptick drip feed scheme.

NV only starts giving us decent prices at the tail end of each gen.

Also, it's far from 100% extra performance, especially factoring in overclocking (on both cards). Its 70% at most.

Most all benchmarks iv seen 980 TI SLI loses to 1080 ti stock.
