Thread Details

I have been waiting to buy this card for a few months now, and it finally dropped down to a reasonable price. This is the cheapest its ever been.

Probably cause the 1080 Ti version is being released soon. Honestly probably going to be about 25%+ faster. Also you're getting the basic 1080. The OC ones are about 10% faster for about $80 more.

People have been saying this for awhile now, even though the '1080ti' was nothing more then rumors and what original rumors people had turned into the Titan XP. Here's the simple fact: There's no reason for Nvidia to come out with it!

Amd is currently offering ZERO competition in the higher end department. Nvidia also already raised prices for the 1070 and 1080 compared to 970 and 980, and raised the price of the Titan XP by $200!

You won't be getting a '1080ti' until AMD's vega

Volta will arrive next year. The 1080 ti is coming. AMD being shit didn't stop Intel from jumping ahead 5 generations.

Are you really trying to say that Intel hasn't spent the past 5 or so generations only improving their cpus by 5-10% each gen, while raising their prices? Are you trying to say that cpus haven't been stagnant while AMD burns?

And not just cpus, but motherboards have risen hugely!

Spread the BS somewhere else, Athlon competition brought cheap cpus and motherboards. The last time an i7 was cheap enough for consumer mass market was the i7 920 (Which I still have one for a Plex Media server). The price of the 6600k msrp is about $10 more then the 2500k, which is already barely an upgrade. I upgraded for usb 3.1 and pci-e ssd booting, but my 2500k got the same performance when pushing a tiny overclock.

It's pretty obvious that all of Intel's time has gone towards mobile cpus and gpus where there's *gasp* competition

What the hell does all that garbage have to do with the 1080 ti? You're going off on a tangent and assuming Nvidia will wait to release a pascal card that's slower than the Titian as their secret weapon to fight Vega, when they are on schedule to pop out a Volta card in 6 months.

You are the one who mentioned AMD and Intel (And you tried to pretend that the last 5 generations of Intel is anything but just them doing things because they can). Intel has kept prices high and kept innovation low due to lack of competition, and Nvidia is doing the same, with higher prices.

But you think they will suddenly lower prices on the 1080 and come out with a better gpu when they have no competition. Dream on. You'll see Volta before you see a 1080ti.

P.S. I said '1080ti'. I was referring to a more powerful consumer class of cards, not just 1080ti.

So you're saying Nvidia won't release a 1080 ti that's slower than the titan x (which was released 3 months ago, AND faster) because of the lack of competition.

Were you one of those guys who paid $700 for the fe 1080 lol?

evga 1080 ftw (Full version) for $655 after $15 coupon...

Is that any different from you thinking that they are about to release a 1080ti based on ONE CARD ON SALE?

ONE CARD. EVERY single other card is msrp or ridiculously overpriced. And you don't even know if this is a permanent price drop or just a sale.

But one card goes on sale and it's a sign your messiah is coming.

1080ti will be released in Q2 or later next year.

I don't know man it's just weird how adamant you are about the possibility of a 1080 ti. One can only conclude only someone who overpaid for a 1080 would say such things. But whatever, I'll stop contributing to the shitposting and bumping this garbage up.

Considering the performance of the evga ftw and my discount I wouldn't say I overpaid. If the 1080ti does surprise me and come out next year I'll have my money's worth out of this

I'm pessimistic. I know these companies too well, I've been too jaded by Intel anyway. I've followed the 1080ti circus for awhile, the problem is, there's no rumors currently, all former rumors turned out to be the Titan XP. There's nothing saying a 1080ti will come out beyond hopes and dreams (And a recent report saying it'll come out in 2nd quarter 2017, which can mean June or July). But nothing saying it'll come out soon.

At the end of the day, it's gonna be up to AMD to bring prices down. I'm free to be wrong, but Nvidia has no competition, it currently has no reason at all to throw consumers a bone, esp. with the 1070 and 1080 always selling out.

Big businesses don't plan to lose money. If they are selling out and have no competition they are gonna try and let the gravy train last as long as possible. Look at all the new Nvidia cards: 1060 6gb, 1060 3gb, 1050ti, 1050. Literally swarms of low priced cards. Why? because the RX 480 has proven to be good competition. So that's where Nvidia is focused.

And yeah, I'll stop responding too as there's nothing more to say.

Bumping a month and a half old topic based on more rumors just to prove you were 'right'? Yawn.

Does your arguments have any actual merit to them? Wake me when Nvidia actually announces it, and you can actually get the cards.
