AMD doesn't have a card that can reliably keep a 3440x1440 monitor above 48hz minimum freesync range with games like Vermintide 2 already pushing that boundary. And no new flagship AMD card due till 2021? (the next one after Vega is supposed to be a RX580 replacement, instead of a flagship).With these prices thinking of going AMD video card and a Free-Sync monitor. Looking to upgrade my monitor to a 34-35 wide screen and going NVIDIA (g-sync) is very pricey.
AMD is competitive everywhere but against the 1080 Ti and Titan Xp.Actually it is AMD's fault. If they had a competitive card, Nvidia wouldn't be able to charge so much.
You Nvidia fans are so funny. You support a company that continually screws you over and then immediately try to shift the blame to company that is actually trying to keep them in check. If you really want to know why Nvidia cards are so expensive, all you need to do is look in a mirror.

I was wondering about that. My current GTX1080 runs 1440p very nicely, and the Vega64 is pretty comparable, but at 3440x1440, not so sure how these cards would run. I have not seen any reviews for that resolution, as it's sort of between 1440p and 4k.

Kyle...you are entitled to your own opinions but you are not entitled to your own facts!
QFT means "quoted for truth." In short, koomba was agreeing with you.How was I trolling? Pretty sure that lady-boy comment was directed at me. If you don't know what that is you should google it or read what I was responding to...
I was making an observation that the price was almost certainly greatly inflated and the community immediately jumped on the F nvidia bandwagon from most likely fake listing of the 1180, which was on an international website. From being around for a while these intl sites have almost always shown to have greatly inflated pricing plus add in VAT and pre-sale plus their tax system and added costs to sell. And the response from rg was to troll me about lady-boys. Please tell me how any of this is not true.
and btw to me it felt like a bit of tongue in cheek back and forth to me, but maybe I have thick skin.
God dammit I'm happy I bought a 1080ti right when it came out. I missed the miner inflation tax, and hopefully my 1080ti will carry me to when the 1180ti prices start to drop (so 2020?).
I can absolutely fuking promise ALL OF YOU ... when this card launches it will not be anymore than $799 for the 1180.
Who here has a casual $880 dollars with tax in their back pocket? I'm willing to bet almost none of you and I'm not trying to put anyone down. Of course a lot of you can afford this but I'm talking about a lot more than the single digits. I'm taking about "their target audience" the gamers they hope to sell these cards too .... I'm talking casual money as in, yeah, I can wing it / swing it no problem and or, yeah, I'm gonna be broke for the rest of the week but I can handle this.
Think my $799 is low ... really? Ok, so, nVidia is going to come to market with the 1180 and it's going to be $899 ... or, $1,000+ dollars with tax? And all of you guys have that kinda money laying around?
Wait, this is what we lost the Vietnam War for? So they could get our capitalist goods before us? Wonder what would have happened if we won?
Most people buy on credit through paypal. Paypal is the main form of payment at Newegg. Newegg is the number one reseller of Computer parts and equipment. Anyone with a decent job or two can get a credit line of $1500 to start. I DID years ago when my credit score was right around a paltry 600 to feed my upgrade habit. (Yes I grew up its 200 better now). Point is, most are not plopping down cash. It;s just another payment. When mining was going nuts the rumor was Nvidia was going to cash in on it with the 1180 being $999 8Gb version, $1499 16Gb version. Now with mining dying down and limited returns, they have to rethink that. And I think you hit the nail on the head with $799 for the 8Gb version.
To a geek, that's only $100 a month on paypal for 8 months of 4K gaming goodness. If their like me, it will last 2 possibly 3 years before the next upgrade. So that isn't shit for a gamer geek like most of us with Yobs!
