There was an 800 series, an 800M. Just not a mainstream desktop card.
Aware of the 800M series, was thinking of the desktop line only.
When it comes to GTX 2xxx vs 11xx, I am fine with either, however I do prefer 2xxx overall. Could be like the old days with 6800 to 7800 to 8800.

AMD went with HBM2 because they didn't have the budget for two architectures. Nvidia doesn't have that problem.
I did read several articles earlier on where HBM and GDDR cost pretty much the same to make now, if not sometimes cheaper or slightly more expensive (A lot of back and forth with this), and that large die with low NM was also cheaper to produce (after kinks worked out and steady on after).
So I see it as very likely that this no doubt can come with a nice low NM large die and fast memory.
Wondering how it will be with latency, as that is what I enjoyed about newer generations that the latency overall and frame consistency is much better.
As for GV100 costing near 1000 to produce, I saw an article before that came out where it said less than 200, then suddenly that article was just gone everywhere only to be replaced later with costs over 1000 to make (and therefor they where "generous") and then to be replaced with less than 800, and then right under 1000 was what most ended up with later (According to various articles)... Overall fairly sure that all those cards cost way less than 1000 to produce.

I will be happy with my 1080Ti SLI for a while to come though as I would wait for the next gen TI variants with some AIB enhancements before jumping boats.
Would be nice in order to not starve the gaming market, as it seems to be a lot of mining lately! Like you looking forward to see what comes out, always exciting with new tech
As for your 1080TI SLI, that should be plenty even for 4K gaming several years down the road. So do not think you will have any issues any day. Even my 1070 @2ghz manages most games fine at 4K!

Very true! Although not all after scientists.
