    Is that a USB-C port I see on the card?

    For $1200, it's going to need to be a minimum of 70% faster than a 1080Ti

    Not many people want to pay that kind of premium for some ray tracing.

    I wanted to be fast and not miss the Ti, but it looks like I was too slow to get the non0Ti.

    If it's the same as the 10 series, you will pay an early adopters fee. IMHO it's better to wait for the third parties a month and get the $100~$200 discount for a better card.

    Yup. Try adding Ti and non Ti both to cart and then hit the checkout.

    This is going to be like the GeForce 3 generation. Almost the same performance as the Geforce 2 Ultra, but it had such potential for enhancements with future games.

    But AMD just shit their pants. They have nothing new planned until a year and a half from now (just a die shrink of Vega AFAIK?)

    Why do bullets go only 50% faster than the character running in that last demo?
    sigh...

    At these prices, unless the games start rolling in RTX I wouldn't worry to much.

    Well not too surprised but fuck you Nvidia. People need to vote with their wallet and not paid these stupid prices. They just moved everything up a teir. Guess my 1080ti will have to do for the next 3 years.

    So twice as fast as a 1080 Ti?

    I'm listening.

    Ouch. Looks like I'm not getting a 2070 anytime soon. I was hoping for a $400ish price range.

    I would. They should be cheaper like the 10 serise was and offer better cooling. Not to mention you could dodge the tax!

    Yeah, keep trying. I tried again and was able to checkout with a Ti in my cart. Keep trying if you can't get it.

    400 will be for the 2050.. 450 for the 2050Ti. :ROFLMAO:

    Seriously though I am looking forward to see what these things can do.

    Yeah, they've just badged the Titan as the Ti.

    If it runs cuda near the RTX 6000 speed it might be a good deal. Maybe.

    Fuck it's hard for me to justify given how much I play games atm, plus 4k high refresh being a bust.

    I was ready to drop 1000 but they may have just found my price sensitivity in the absence of some Uber compelling game.

    The 10 series founders cards were +$100 over MSRP but even $500 for the 2070 is a bit steep.

    I'll hang onto my 1070 for a while longer.

    Remember when Nvidia blew the world away with the 8800 GTX and it's outrageously high prices?

    Now remember a year later when the 8800 GT made these suddenly available to all comers. All that took was a die shrink and a memory subsystem optimization (to get it functional on 256-bit bandwidth).

    There's a 7nm die shrink coming next year, and the prices of GDDR6 will drop once there is mass-production. We could see prices of the refresh drop below the $400 mark for 2080 performance, and that would be very worrying for AMD.

    This is the AMD effect. There still isn't effective competition to the 1080Ti, so nV is only competing against themselves at this point. And AMD's pipeline doesn't exactly showcase anything coming that can will change that for a good while.

    I have 0 faith that Intel will present anything credible in the next two years, but who knows.

    I also blame the miners for running the prices up on all the cards and getting people to accept paying MSRP (or more) as the new normal.

    Based on there little tomb raider clip, I see their revolutionary new technology is to throw a blur filter over the shadows. Probably drops your fps by 40% for the privaledge.

    Stream quality just went to shit, which makes watching a graphical showcase kind of pointless. :p
     
  30. I said the pricing structure would happen like that to clear back stock.

    Could, but I doubt it. Will come down to Can it Mine? if it can, you can kiss any reduced pricing goodbye for a long time.
     
  33. If you think about it, AMD is Cyberdyne systems.

    Lots of cores? Check (Threadripper/Epyc)
    AI built into core? Check

    Not far off. Looks like M2 form factor

    Over/Under on nVidia "losing" Kyle's order?

    I wouldn't be overly surprised at this point if he's on some sort of list of people to not do business with. nVidia deserves everything they've received from the site, but I somehow doubt they see it that way.

    Was a joke about Nvidia Trashworks and how their features just destroy you FPS for little to zero visual gain (I'm looking at you hairworks and god rays....)

    AMD better announce something, be it vega shrink or whatever, before these hit the shelf.
    I'm desperate for a new card but I'd still prefer AMD because of GPP.
    If it's gonna be 2019 or later? Sorry AMD I can't wait that long.
    I guess I'll get a 2080 if that's the case.

    $1200 for a 2080Ti? $600 for the 2070? Yeah, no. I may be on my last gaming PC, and if anyone is due for an upgrade it's my old box.
