    Have never come across this website before, so no idea whether it has a reliable record when it comes to accurate insider information. Take it for what you will.

    March 10 is very far. Does this mean volta won't be until end of the year. That will royally suck ass.

    Did you seriously believe that there will be Volta in 2017? Lol, it won't be at least until spring 2018. They've just (relatively) released Pascal cards and have literally no competition in high-end and trade blows in mainstream (though 1060 is sold in larger quantities, just look at numerous 470/480 deals, while 1060 has almost none). And even when Volta comes - it either matches 1080 or slightly beats it at best. No need for nvidia to rush new arch every year.

    GP104 just came out at the end of May last year. If anything comes out this year I would expect it to be a Fermi-like refresh instead of a new architecture. TSMC is starting to ship 10nm to their customers, but I would expect NVIDIA to prioritize the HPC space, first, especially since Volta is the backbone of their exascale project.

    Nothing like burning a hole in your pocket waiting for the next Nvidia thing......
    Untill I get 10 frames per second in 1440P on games I won't upgrade.

    They did not announce Pascal with the P100 until April at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2016.
    This year GTC is in May.
    That said I would expect only 1 or 2 consumer Volta max and closer to the end of the year after Q3 (would more likely be the 1080 replacement).
    Focus would be the large die Tesla Volta in its GV100 form as 1st and primary launch.
    Cheers

    Haha, the click bait continues with all these sites. Once one rumor gets shot down, it's on to the next and the consumer keeps clicking away.

    Typical. After it was not shown on CES, the "release date" moves to another event :).

    I believe though, that if NV really has 1080 Ti planned, then it will be launched around Vega. Either to drive AMD short reign of performance king or as price/performance replacement to Vega.

    Question is though, how are they with Volta. Because if Vega turns to be 1080 level, there will likely not be 1080, but they will bring the Volta at the end of the year.

    Of course on the other hand, if they have lots of those cut down Titan chips, they might just make use of it.

    So as always. You need card now? Buy the fastest you can afford. If you don't need it right now, play the waiting game.

    :)

    Negative.

    If Vega is really shooting for June/July this year (expected I think around then?), plan on NV releasing 1080Ti in April for $650 and dropping 1080 to $500 and 1070 to $350 (with cards being cheaper on sale). They will slit AMDs throat again taking sales that could have been AMD's with a faster release.

    If its release in March then $700+, with a price cut when Vega launches.

    If Vega can match the 1080 Ti, then there might be a cut (would depend on Vega's price at that point); otherwise, NVIDIA will stick to their price plan.

    Nvidia knows how Vega will perform before it actually comes out and will price the 1080 Ti accordingly from day one. It is no different than what they did with the 980 Ti before the Fury X came out. People that waited on the Fury X to be a better performer or better value just wasted their time. AMD had done nothing but lie with its slides showing the Fury X performing much better than it did when it was actually launched and with its "overclocker's dream" claims.

    I don't know man, there's a valid strategy in releasing new cards early. Upgrade itch makes people buy new stuff. No competition means high price, not how often stuff is released. Just look at Intel, they are in an even better position.
