    NVIDIA Is promising "spectacular surprises" at Gamescom 2018 in Cologne, Germany on the days of August 20th and 21st. 1180? 1180+? 2080? Let's hope so. We don't know, but the fish head does.

    The event will be loaded with new, exclusive, hands-on demos of the hottest upcoming games, stage presentations from the world’s biggest game developers, and some spectacular surprises.

    Rebadging has been more of an AMD thing lately.

    nVidia hasn’t been a let down with GPU releases and they are usually impressive. On the PR side it’s been a bit rough. I’ll watch the presentation the day of if they have one.

    My guess is rebates on a 1080 card or a free game with each purchase :)

    Nvidia pretty much always has Linux drivers come out around the same time for video card releases. Considering AMD's performance in Linux is still worse then NVidia's (though it is getting much better compared to 5 years ago) .

    Currently AMD doesn't have a competitor to the 1080Ti, and if time is important to you I don't see a comparable AMD card in the pipeline till at least 1.5+ yrs away.

    Bring Kyle on stage where Jen gives him the leather jacket off his back while offering to adopt him into the Huang family.

    New MSRP that to match the inflated prices, so they can claim that they are selling at MSRP.

    You're both right. I believe it's a European thing to use a '.' for the thousands separator and a ',' for the decimal separator.

    Pretty much what I am expecting. A new gpu product line at asshole tier pricing while keeping existing gpu products at the same msrp they have been for the past 2 years. Expecting any less of Nvidia these days is folly.

    And only 224k of that is usable. The other 32k operate at the same half-speed as the GTX 970! The way it's meant to be gimped

    I’m pretty sure that the only thing spectacular will be the price of the higher end cards. Record setting spectacular.

    I’m also looking forward to seeing wannabe Captain Kirk on stage with his woodscrew band.

    The only "spectacular surprise" I could imagine would be an nnouncemebt that next gen GPU's are still a year off so they can sell off their high post crypto-boom GPU inventories at full price first :p

    Until AMD comes out with something that takes the performance crown, they just don't have a ton of incentive to push forward.

    I wouldn't mind a return to a truly competitive GPU market with 3+ real competitors.

    In 2000-2003 the fastest GPU money could buy cost about $350. There has been some inflation since, but not enough to account for the ridiculous costs of modern GPU's.

    Because of the lack of competition release scheduled have slowed (In 2000, Nvidia was launching a new GPU generation every 6 months) and pricing has go e thorough the roof.

    Maybe if AMD's RTG gets their shit together now that AMD has had success with Ryzen and can afford R&D again and Intel follows through on their discrete GPU plans this time, we might actually return there.
