    Hehe, just IMd this to Steve a few minutes ago.


    I heard ZERO about Ti being announced and NVIDIA actually still talks to me and invites me to shit like that. But they do their own events when they have something to actually sell.

    I mean it's disappointing but at no point did Nvidia promise a video card announcement. Everything about the ti was 100% rumor and "leaks". For all we know it might not even exist and every bit of rumor has been fake.

    If the Titan XP sells like hot cakes, why bother with it? Competition never showed up.

    All I kept thinking of was the Shield reveal and the wireless no-latency controllers we never ever saw.

    Do they really sell like hot cakes though? I can afford one but just refuse to spend that much on a video card.

    Well AMD should have a great day tomorrow introducing Vega. Even if it costs $1000 I'm more likely to get one than a $60,000 dollar import car full of AI!

    I was hoping on some VR-related news - nothing like that talked about?

    It doesn't makes sense to release something that may fall short of AMD's performance and/or pricing of Vega.
    I would think there's a Ti and a GP100 Titan, and one of them will be released just before AMD can get their cards on shelves.

    It's important for AMD to have availability at the time of announcement. A paper launch will be another misstep because they struggle to get cards into customers hands.

    Please buy Vega so my 1080Ti will be a few dollars cheaper. Thank you for your patronage!

    remember nvidia primary business is selling gpu hardware. Geforce Now on Nvidia shield TV is costing about $8 a month. this is more like giving people a glimpse how it is playing on high end pc. at $25 for 20 hour i don't think nvidia intend for this service to be used heavily by pc gamer. what nvidia want is for pc gamer to buy their high end hardware.

    That one at Fry's was horrible. Just a few days notice, middle of the business week. It was sort of embarrassing. :( But we still gave away a bunch of GPUs, so folks had great odds.

    makes sense they didnt release the 1080ti. No reason too yet. You know Nvidia will wait for the month/week Vega launches to counter.

    Until then sit back and be patient. Good approach.

    I think some missed a very important snippet of news, specifically around the Volta implementation of the 'Tegra' Drive PX related solutions.
    Originally they planned this Volta Tegra to be 20 TOPS DL at 20W, now they report 30 TOPS DL at 30W, that aligns with how Nvidia/IBM has increased their performance potential recently with the finalised HPC related projects' specs around Volta 'V100'.
    30 TOPS DL works out around 3.75 TFLOPs FP32.

    Cheers

    LOL well I'm not really sad there wasn't a 1080 Ti announced so my Titan X gets to stay at the top for a little while longer :D Thanks for not tanking my purchase so soon like the previous Titans NVIDIA! Also shout out to AMD for being limp.

    I'm still on my 2015 Maxwell Titans. The Asus PG27UQ with a 1080 Ti would have been a very compelling combo.

    really dissapointed in this nvidia announcement.

    i cant believe noones mentioned the collaboration with big brother facebook. thats a red flag.
    the geforce now, while a great idea, still not feasible.
    nvidia spot aka nvidia SPY ( i swear i heard hung huang sun say that, or whatever his name is). -huge red flag
    nvidia ai co pilot. once again in car spy big brother crap. probably linked to other cars+gov+facebook. another huge huge flag.

    sure autonomous cars are great, but is the tradeoff worth it? or will we not even care by the time it gets here... we've already succumbed to being tracked, i guess an in car ai spy wouldnt hurt.
    then he said to the bioware developer, "what you say?".... like seriously, let the guy talk about his game.
    pretty dissapointed in nvidia, while they are paving the way for robot/ai takeover, i still sit and think how these traditional days are almost over.

    ive always been an nvidia fan, but this black leather shiny jacket wearing pompous floating head is losing my interest. for someone thats head over heels with high performance cars, listening to him talk about getting rid of cars and parking lots is kinda.. hypocritical.

    amd is gonna have to come on with it.

    Well, given that it's 2017 now and nvidia typically name their cards based on the year/cycle, you may well be literally correct. :cool:

    They're really starting to remind me of Apple. . . . .

    -Our R&D, lawyers, marketing, and board have all been meeting for some time. . . .We're running out of useful products we want to release but we've found many, many new ways to profit from your existence.

    That Nvidia Now price is a complete non starter. Geez, these damn monthly "entertainment" services are getting ridiculous. Consumers have to be vigilant or will quickly see a rise in entertainment expenses. These things quickly add up. Getting rid of cable to go only Netflix...but then you add HBO and then you add EA and then you add Nvidia, and then you add whatever.

    Soon you are paying more than you were in the first place.

    After I heard some of the nonsense that was being spilled, I dipped quickly. Nvidias leadership does Not inspire me.

    All the hype + guarantees/confirmations of the Ti showing up that I saw on Twitter alone were priceless. I doubt there was enough humble pie around last night to feed those people. :p

    The more I think about this, the more confused I get. Netflix for gaming? Are the 20 hours actual gameplay hours or 20 hours once you start (ala Amazon video rental). Maybe I missed it.

    It could be okay for someone like me who loves the idea of gaming but actually doesn't do much of it lol :) Although I probably have lots of company here on this one....

    ROFL $25 for 20 hours of playtime. There is no chance that will take off. Come back when you can offer 4k lag-free game play of any game ever released or is going to be released for $25/month unlimited playtime with no extra game purchases and maybe, just maybe, some people will subscribe to it. Game streaming can be useful to stream the games I bought to other screens in my house or my portable devices, but other than that I find it useless. OnLive was crap because you had to pay a monthly to access the service, then you still had to pay for games and the lag was obvious when playing it. You can't be the "Netflix" of game streaming, if you don't have unlimited playtime and a good selection of games to play with no extra purchases or overage fees required over your monthly fee.

    Definitely agree with MikeTrike, a completely worthless NVIDIA presentation, filled with nothing interesting, innovative, useful or even worth the time it took to read the blog. All I really got from it was Nvida our new products for tracking you and selling that info to make us more money.

    Using a rough calculation of say 10hrs per a week at 52 weeks, so 520hrs Divided by 20 times 25 = 650$ for a whole year. That is not a deal. It's not 4k. The ISP's are putting in caps now instead of pushing for better infrastructure? No thanks. 4k downloaded video is already expensive enough.

    Yes, I was there, and the two in Dallas also. Always had a great time coming to those. I imagine there is a lot of logistics involved to be able to put on one of these though.....

    By some of the comments here, looks like nvidia is worshiped at the same level as apple and ms.

    It looked more like a board member and investor circle jerk of announcements... IMO...

    Game streaming could have a market if made like Netflix streaming... However, you might want to focus on those 1 billion poor people who can't upgrade their PC's internet connection first... People who can afford good internet access can likely afford other nice things... OnLive indeed failed at this, also FPS games suck on streaming, could otherwise be fine for filthy casuals, also RTS, DOTA style games, etc...

    This year's CES was about as exciting as the announcement of a vibrating muscle relaxer with a 4k camera built into its business end.
