    And they going to prerelease the 1080ti there? The march rumour for products comes via MSI so should be somewhat reliable.

    Fingers crossed, 1080Ti is announced / confirmed for release. I need an upgrade.

    I think you're right, still too early for the Pascal refresh or the non-existant 1080 Ti.

    I'm hoping (and expecting) a 1080ti reveal...then I will upgrade my GTX 970 to either a 1070 or 1080...hopefully the 8GB VRAM will be enough for a few years

    New GeForce Experience getting a feature that allows users to rate their games from 0 to 3.5 out of 4

    Repeat from 980 ti all the way. AMD releases Fury and same day NV released their card, that made Fury X worse choice.

    Now, at Capsaicin event on 28th Feb Amd is supposed to show Vega - not release it - and we got NV "trolling" them.

    Now, let's hope the release of 1080 ti will bring 1080 prices down to 1070 levels :)

    Your right Nvidia normally does not announce cards at this event, but I doubt they want to announce the 1080ti at GTC as that is where one would expect Volta Tesla to be announced (P100 was at GTC last year).

    Surely Nvidia wouldn't hold an event such as this without a definite purpose, and I can't think of anything beside a 1080ti that would be worth promoting in this manner at this time.

    So signs look good imho! :cool:

    I don't think there will be any new announcements until AMD shows a real product. Top end is already dominated by Nvidia right now and in all past leaks or benchmarks Vega was around 1080 level. As of right now AMD is playing catching up game with Intel and Nvidia, nothing more.

    NVIDIA is not sitting on product waiting for AMD's next line to drop. Their release schedule is about keeping Wall Street happy. They're competing more with their installed user base and existing products than anything new from AMD. They might shift announcements to trip AMD up, but way more goes into their production than the war with AMD.

    Apple doesn't build a new iPhone and wait for Samsung to announce a new Galaxy, they build a new iPhone so the people with old iPhones will buy new iPhones.

    Yeah according to them the code was changed later.
    Also the word "Time" has a bold Ti.

    Oh my god, you guys. Why is NVIDIA counting down to the RX 580?

    upload_2017-2-23_9-26-50.png

    Just to be clear: I'm not dismissing that the 1080 Ti could be announced at GDC. I'm simply pointing out the ridiculousness of using code snippets on a public website to try and prove it.

    What about Guru3D where Hilbert got the code himself :)
    Linked it earlier in the thread.

    Now he is usually pretty reliable and sensible, I would not expect him to screw around with code just to make a fake news story.

    But yeah as Tainted pointed out the best indicator is the fact of the Ti in bold on the countdown page.
    Some may not had identified it well but the image is also Titanium:
    This is a photo of Titanium element:

    And compare that to the background structures behind the countdown.
    Using Videocardz one but more clear at Geforce: http://www.geforce.com/

    Appreciate this goes beyond your point though Armenius.

    It's a real ti announcement coming this time. This isn't like the CES supposed announcement. This time is legit and is pretty obvious. Also use common sense Nvidia can't hold this product back forever that's been ready ready now for probably a couple of months or more. They have a timeline to stick to for launch windows. The only two things I care about now are when are they gonna be available and how much will we be gouged for these things. Period.

    More likely 1080Ti, like the 980 was the best of the 900 series geforce, which later got a Ti variant.

    Just a couple of hours to go if I'm not mistaken. There might be no stream, though :(

    edit : nvm it's only the 27th in SF today, boo timezones.

    Yes, the correct timezone is "center of the universe".

    One the event is 6:30 PM PDT, so it has not even started yet lol. Second as least nvidia is actually going to launch a product tonight unlike another redish company who likes to jerk chains constantly.

    Ah, just realised you guys are behind us by almost a days time. So it's currently 4.48pm in SF, not long left till the event starts. Anxiously waiting, I haven't been able to sleep over the past 24 hrs because I need to upgrade soon.

    That is actually one of Jen-Hsun Huang's turds... Wearing his trademark leather jacket, he's channeling the terminator these days. He's having his engineers use them to create a new shroud casing for each and every 1080Ti and this added bling will make the $799 price tag for the card more palatable for those of you considering upgrading. :D

    A metal turd from Huang is 1000% faster than Vega will ever be if that piece vaporware ever releases ;)

    Definitely plan to watch.

    Still on 980 SLI. It's been fun, but probably going with the single GPU if it beats Titan XP.

    Just speculation, but anyone think perhaps 1060 / 70 / 80 are discontinued, and we see 1060 / 70 / 80 Ti as the Pascal refresh?

    One thing that Nvidia understands...showing a physical card makes the launch tangible.
    AMD still comes out with videos and slides without any physical product.

    Showing the physical product, even with wood screws, will get costumer wallets to open.
    I guarantee you if AMD would have shown a physical card today more people would be on the fence about Nvidia's pricey offering.

    The other problem is this was the third Vega showing with no hard launch or price. it is getting stupid.
