Yeah, to be fair though, I bought a 7970 at launch, sold it a year later for 80% what I paid, and I have had great luck selling each new generation of card a year after I buy it, Nvidia holds its value best of course.

So a joke yes... but if you time it right, really its not much out of pocket at all after the first initial investment. thumb.gif

Hopefully I can snag a used 1080ti for cheap if Volta drops early smile.gif

Its the 16nm ff process that starts to degrade if youv been following the news.
1070/1080 3 years 100% load 24/7
titanx/1080ti/titanxp 1 year 100% load 24/7

Yes, yes, just like SSDs etc. All electronics have limited life span. Yet both my Samsung SSDs are still at 100% health, even the "crappy" 840 EVO with MLC nand. Your 1080 or 1080Ti will be ancient history before it degrades.

I might want to snag a GTX 2080 and stay for good or till it dies.


I realised I still prefer small, less power hungry and heaty chip. So the cooler can be more elegant and less behemoth like what we see in GTX 1080 Ti AiB. Also I dont like saggy card.



They are just wayyyy too big for my liking for GP102, those on 2 slots model the temps are really quite scary (especially the idle temp)

Eh that's not really news, silicon always degrades.. most overclocking headroom is due to conservative clocks so that stock can be stable after years of degradation. I guess this means nvidia wasn't as conservative as they needed to be to make them last, probably banking on people buying newer cards and not caring enough to sue them.

If it's any consolation, most GTX 470 / 480 cards died within 3yrs or so, same with the big chip version of the 8800GTS / GTX / Ultra.

It's great that the technology is moving forward with graphics cards. On the other hand, it moves forward so fast it makes me think it's not wise to upgrade every generation and it would be more beneficial to always grab the midrange card to minimize losses. While other PC parts can be very usable now even after 8-9 years (like the X58 platform) due to minimal upgrades, graphics cards from that era have gone to the trash bin long ago...my first one was the Voodoo1 already. Can't even remember how many graphics cards I've had. Maybe hundreds?

We should never grab an expensive graphics card as an "investment". Only if you really need it and understand that you'll lose a great amount of money when selling it or just keep it until it becomes obsolete or not practical.

Sounds like a poor kind of investment. lol

That's what it is, if an investment at all. wink.gif
