    People use GPUs for things other than videogames. Using 3D apps like Blender, the more vram you have the more complex the scene you can render using Cycle.

    Want Pascal, but Dual-GPU card seems to be winning.

    That's an interesting proposition though, I want to upgrade, but not until something comes out that can give me fairly reliable 4k/60. Current stuff kind of scrapes that with a good following wind, sometimes, but a good Dual GPU card might persuade me to stop waiting.

    TSMC and Xilinx have been working on 16nm FinFETs for over two years. The most recent updates suggest that Xilinx will start shipping chips made from this process in the first half of 2016. I'd guess that an NVidia chip with this technology wouldn't come until mid-2016 at the earliest.

    What would that be exactly? I just bought a 4GB GTX 960, the ASUS STRIX model. So far I am damn happy with it and it hasn't given me any reason to feel like I am undergunned in the video card area. I'm gaming at 1080P and not planing on larger monitors any time soon and when I do make that switch, I expect it will be much cheaper to do then it has been for the last year or so.

    380X is a full Tonga, should probably perform close to a stock 290.
    It better be good we've been waiting a year for it!

    I have seen a GTX 970 go as low as 257.00 shipped no tax...
    Dont think a 960 4gb is a good future proof card unless you plan on staying at 1080p for pc gaming the next 2-3 years. 2560x1440 is where its at right now because 1080p is just so 2007-2013:D

    Which is funny, because I've been gaming at 2304x1440 since at least 2002. LCD sucks. :( XD

    Nobody buying enthusiast graphics cards, let alone more than one, care one inkling about 1080p. Most at this level are concerned about 1440p at >120fps, or are concerned about 4k.

    The 960 is a turd of a card. There is a large gap in performance between it and the 970. A 960ti, selling for $250-260, and coming in about 10-15% under in performance to the 970 just makes sense.

    The majority of end users do not overclock. That gap is hurting their sales.

    Yes but what would it be?
    Don't say GM206 or GM204.

    Why not a GM204 with some gimped cores and shaders? It'd still be better than GM206.

    Why is anyone still speculating about pointless 960Ti's when everyone and their mother knows its a Dual Maxwell card.

    Vanilla 980 Ti's will hit those clocks with GPU Boost, anyway. Factory overclocks don't really mean shit these days.
