When will we see a >20% upgrade to Titan X pascal?

    My apologies for asking something that most of you probably figure is common knowledge. I tried googling for info on the next releases for the Nvidia GPU market, but got a lot of conflicting information about a few different chipsets.

    Can someone that's already parsed this out lay it down for me? I've been using my Titan X (pascal) that I picked up in August of 2016 for quite awhile. Most disappointing is that I seem to run just about everything (TW3, ME:A, FFXV Windows Ed, etc) in UHD with most of the eye candy, but JUST below where it's comfortably smooth (maybe 45-52 fps).

    I just want a single card (I'm done with SLI) solution that will let me bump that up by about 20% so I can play everything in smooth 60fps. To my knowledge, both the 1080ti and Titan XP are marginally faster, but not more than maybe 10%, which isn't going to get me where I want to be. I'm willing to pay any amount up to around $1500, so the Titan V is also out.

    When do you figure this might happen?

    that card already exist, but not at consumer level, which it's the Nvidia Titan V. it is a good 30 - 40% faster than a 1080Ti, however as said, isn't a consumer level GPU, it's labeled as semi-pro (prosumer) GPU with extreme AI capabilities priced at 3000$. when a consumer version will arrive? still unknown, it depend on the market, I guess Nvidia may be waiting to the mining thing to down to acceptable levels where GPUS are again available at MSRP in large quantities.

    Titan V is your best option, I'd wait for that to get into your price range. Unless something better comes along before then.... As soon as next gen comes out, you will definitely find something.

    Thanks. Given my budget of ~$1500, I assumed that wouldn't be happening for a few years at least, given that it's $3k new and used by professionals.

    No word on any next gen cards then, huh? Seems like it's been a really long refresh cycle this time around, for some reason. The 1080 has been around for almost 2 years, and even the 1080ti is, what, about a year old? And nothing really on the horizon? Then again, I guess this is what happens when GPU manufacturers have no real competition.

    The 1180 card (assuming the similar naming) should be exactly what you want in regard to % increase.
    Bear in mind new game requirements increase with time so you might not be completely happy until the 1180ti or a newer Titan.

    Does your $1500 budget include the money you will recoup from selling your current TitanXp? If not, then your $1500+$11~1300 for your current card gets you very close. You are a niche of a niche, so sadly your only option is to pay to play.

    Whatever the next gen is will probably get you there. Don't sweat it. It's only just about to be 2 years since Pascal was released, and only 20 months since the Titan X was released. Keep in mind that we've only had short turnaround windows in the recent past because going back to at least Tesla, NVIDIA reused the same architecture for 2 or more generations. Volta/Ampere/Turing or whatever the next consumer product line released will be the third generation in a row using a brand new architecture. Whatever it will be I have confidence that the next gamer halo card will be much more than the 30% increase in performance we saw with Titan V.

    You can't compare the Titan V with GTX1080 TI, - Titan V 5120 cores, 320 Tmus, 96 Rops, 12288MB, HBM2, 3072Bit with GTX1080 TI 3584 cores, 224 Tmus, 88 Rops, 11264MB, GDDR5x, 352Bit those cards have a big deference's with each other to give a fair competition. it's the same unfair to compare the HBM2 with GDDR5x memory.

    Buy a Titan V right now if you want that power. Otherwise, get in line with the rest of the world and collect some interest in the back while you save up.

    1180 summer, 1180Ti holidays

    Be patient, or not. I’ve been waiting close to 2 years for post-pascal card.

    Buy a 3440x1440 g-sync monitor and keep you current card.

    It’ll be cheaper and smoother. I haven’t seen my 1080ti get less than 75fps on any game I’ve played, always on max settings. Vermintide 2 is the most demanding game i have and it occasionally hits that 75fps level. BUT with gsync it’s subjectively buttery smooth all the way down to mid 40s to my eyes. (The only time I experience mid 40s is when I’m mining and playing a low demand game at the same time). Gsync feels buttery smooth and is absolutely worthwhile in my opinion. I have the Alienware 34”, 120hz with gsync.

    Once you go UHD, nothing else satisfies...

    You could say the same thing about refresh rates > 60.

    True ^^
    Which is why I’ve never gone there!

    it's subjective.
    I've seen a 27" 4K and hated the native res in windows.
    34" ultrawide is more equivalent to 2K from a pixel per inch perspective, and for gaming experience beats a typical 4K 16x9 IMO.
