Wait for official retail channels like Amazon for real MSRP. Smaller retailers are price gouging.

Because 970 launched AFTER 290/x series did, not before...
The fact that 970/980 line of cards werent truly a new architecture, but more of a step up from the 780/TI series of cards with more energy efficiency and a marginal boost in specs.

What that means is that R&D costs have already been realized from the previous generation, so all Nvidia had to do is keep the oven baking and tout the awesome energy savings, which didnt cost them much. That is what allowed them to keep the prices relatively low and outmaneuver AMD.

definitely new architecture.

I went from a 760 to a 970, huge performance gains, whilst the card is cooler and using comparable power at the same time.

In addition various new games are widening the gap as they optimised for maxwell, such as witcher3. On a review of witcher 3 the 760 only managed 23fps vs 68fps on the 970 at 1080p.

I would prefer if they optimize for all of their hardware equally... Most people don't upgrade their GPUs yearly. This time next year, Nvidia will abandon Maxwell for Pascal.

Umm, you can get that card today. It's called the Titan X.

Rumor, rumor, rumor... needs facts. Have to wait until June 2 for that.

Why does the existing game promo have to expire ONE DAY before Computex?

I really hope it gets extended another week or so. If AMD flops next week I'd really love to be able to pounce on the 970/980/Ti (or SLi) along with those coupons...

They adopted the AIO WC mentality of AMD.
Nice little copy by Nvidia.

:rolleyes:

What's your point exactly?

EDIT: Like someone else pointed out EVGA designed this not NVIDIA. The fact that you attacked NVIDIA shows you are a fanboy.

It's not "copying" it's just becoming standard practice.
Like how Nvidia will utilize HBM next year. They're not copying AMD, they're just adopting a standard.

Numbers look great but I'm disappointed by the lack of custom cooled cards at launch, was hoping to see some from ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, etc. I usually avoid reference cards because they run too hot and loud at load.

If the leaked benchmarks are accurate I think I will be in for two. I would like to be able to import some profiles from Autocad and render some more important stuff from home then transfer to my workstation on the fly.

I think the 980ti's would be able to do this. I may need to get 3 or 4 here.. but that would only be better for gaming :D Though my co-workers aren't sure here.

Um the card officially launched earlier today and reviews have been out since then.

I guess what I mean is: the price to performance ratio ( the benchmarks being accurate). I will probably buy 4 or so of these.


I Guess I was much more interested if spending a couple grand if they could run Autodesk as well as OG titans. I would love to game with these onmy home office PC as well as work with them 90% of the time with Autodesk using Autocad.

Thanks for your concern though.
