Nvidia just announced the release of the new 1080 on May 27 for $600

The 1070 will release on June 10th for $380.

Just a quick heads up for those that wanted to know! If someone wants to make a more detailed thread, feel free.

Engadget just posted their article as well:
NVIDIA's GTX 1080 GPU is twice as fast the Titan X [engadget.com]

Only twice as fast as a Titan X at certain things, which many people don't use. Still an impressive card though. Article says the card is more capable than 2 gtx 980s. Also the 1070 is more powerful than a Titan X and will retail for $379. That is impressive.

Wow. Are we finally moving beyond 28nm? Guess I can finally move on from this 7850.

Yup, I'm all up on a GTX 1080 when it comes out. I've got $320 EVGA bucks to apply toward it so I'll get it at the cost of a 1070.

Alright so the more I read, I don't think the 1080 is actually as fast as 2 GTX980s, that just isn't realistic. We will see once actual benchmarks come out.

It's not like the materials to make a video card are super expensive. Just some metal and sand.

My pain point used to be ~$200 for a video card. Now it's ~$700. Crazy how my budget has changed. I currently have a single 980ti but can't wait to get into a 40" 4k and run something like GTA5 @ 60fps drool I hope I can wait for 1080ti SLI

<-- bought an OG Voodoo 1 for GLQuake waaaaaaaaay back in the day @ Bestbuy. Circa '96 laugh out loud

I'm actually pretty stoked myself. I've been needing something for my desktop for a while now and almost jumped on a 980 TI but I knew pascal was just around the corner. Very glad I waited. Now I'm just wondering if the 1080 is worth it over the 70 if I'm not particularly interested in VR and my gaming probably won't move past 1080p any time soon.

Should have waited until the 1080s were released before buying a Strix GT 970

You won't see a MSRP launch price only the Founders Edition Cards will be released for $699/$449 and be sold out everywhere. After 2-4 months you will see the "Founders Edition" magically become $599/$379 MSRP reference card good scheme whoever thought of it at Nvidia. And Nvidia gets a price drop to MSRP to compete with AMD new Polaris 10 cards.

Maybe it is doing 4k. A big thing with 4k is vram and the 1080 not only has twice as much vram but twice as fast vram.

At 1080 I highly doubt it's double but at 4k I believe it could be true

You don't know you need something until you see it at 70% off
