Can't understand paying this for 2 year old tech, it just seems insane. No rush to move on my GTX980ti.

It does get to the point where I think "Should I pack it all in and get a PS4 Pro?".
I think I will stick with my 1060 6GB until the next generation come out. If I'm going to spend over £500 on a card, I would prefer not to buy a card that was released in 2016.
1070ti is down to £440 - only fractionally over RRP. Not much diffference in performance between that and the 1080 non-ti. I'm still going to wait until the new ones comes out.

Yes! GPU prices are coming down slightly! Hot.

I think this is just anticipation of the ‘coming soon’ next gen. Wouldn’t be surprised if demand had fallen off slightly too though.
Palit make great cards, always excellent cooling.
Just ordered 300. Bargain.

I hope new cards come out soon... not really wanting to buy old overpriced cards, I have a feeling the 1170 will match or beat the Titan V 👀

It's because people are still buying them at ridiculous rates for mining crypto, it drove the prices up because you couldn't get them anywhere at once point.

This is just FUD and wrong. Miners never really wanted the 1080 anyway because the GDDR5X wasn’t good for crypto. It’s many factors but memory shortage didn’t help either - SSDs and RAM have also gone up in price.

Certainly a great price compared to what we've had to cope with over the past year or so, but personally I'd stay strong and hope that new cards get announced soon...we're certainly due them.

Agreed, I'm sorry but the retailers all cashed in more than was necessary. Same for Nvidia themselves.

It doesn't help that AMD can't seem to put out a single competitive product in the GPU market.

2 year old tech. Yeah.. ancient man. And there's me using a Geforce3 Ti200 from 2001.

Yes, of course, that too but it's economics and I think they would have had just as much of a backlash if they kept the prices the same and were still out of stock so why not test market sentiment and make money while at it!

AMD aren't exactly bad, I'm pretty happy with my Vega cards but they definitely took their time to release a product that was a bit 'meh' after all that waiting.
Bad time for PC owners at the moment.

The price fixing on these cards is crazy. Cards delayed by both AMD and Nvidia because when you can sell old tech for crazy prices then why bring out new cards.

Ram price fixing, prices slowly coming down only because the government was going to open an investigation into price fixing, hey presto prices start falling again. Plus you can't run a crypto machine without RAM so lets shaft the price on these too.

The only good news recently was that AMD have a new Ryzen processor that at least is pushing Intel to drop prices.
How many BC/hour?

Even if 1080 has never been popular with 'miners', lack of other options pushed the prices up. The mining craze is still responsible for the high prices of components, especially gpu, memory and high power PSUs. The same issue cramped demand on all DIY PC parts .

I used to upgrade my computer quite regularly, even though I am a very casual gamer and rarely use the computer to the full capacity. Now, I just gave up and bought the console. The console games got cheaper than they used to be, some PS4 exclusives are really good and I simply refuse to pay £400+ for a mid range graphic card, not a chance.

I still sit on GTX670 and older gen i7, I can play most of my games and even the infrequent video editing does not frustrate me (yet). If I get a reasonably priced upgrade I will go ahead, otherwise I will stick to a console + a better 'office' computer in case my stuff will get really obsolete and I know I am not alone in this thinking. I can afford it, the industry could get my money but they will not until the circumstances change.

The proper value of bitcoin&co is ZERO, they can talk carp about block-chains (which is something potentially useful but you do not need crypto for that, and certainly not @ 8k for 'unit') but it does not change the situation - you do not buy 'shares' in this technology or any tangible assets. The value of all crypto is purely speculative and brings nothing to the table. There will be outcry, bankruptcies and suicides when this go more real but the sharks, as always will get out it with big money made, again on the small and easy manipulated. The sooner , the better.

Mining was a factor but it wasn't the only one. The tech sector has been in a slump for ages, we have basically no innovation any more - look at mobile phones for example. Many PC enthusiasts are still running Sandy/Ivy Bridge architecture and I am not surprised you are still using a GTX 670 - why wouldn't you? It's a good card. You are definitely not alone, in another thread I mentioned my office PC is a Dell XPS 27 (Ivy Bridge quad-core), I have no need to upgrade - I used a few laptops and they're all ex-lease ultrabooks (Haswell gen) apart from my MacBook.

I had the same inner discussion and went back to consoles.

I prefer not having to play with settings and having physical copies. Digital games are worthless in the grand scheme of things.

Multiplayer games are also significantly better. PC definitely was awesome at the end of the 360 gen until the last year or so.

That's what I'm currently on. It does the job but it's starting to feel a bit aged on my monitor. Gsync keeps it smooth but I'd much prefer to hit 1440p consistently.

But the thing is, it's not really a downgrade these days is it. We've had this argument over on the OCUK forums, the agreement seems to be that there aren't really any games that look better on PC than they do on Xbox One X anymore. It's like devs settle for "Good enough" graphics, meanwhile we're left paying £600 just for one component of our systems.

Isn't that because of the sad fact that most developers develop for the consoles predominately (as they are custom PCs anyway in reality) and then PCs are an afterthought now.

In the 'old days', games were developed for PC or console-only and possibly ported later. You can't blame them, when the hardware is kind of similar, why not develop for the lowest common denominator - the consoles then be able to sell games on all platforms.

I mean even mobile gaming is looking alright compared to PCs - Fortnite on iOS really isn't bad at all!
but can it run crysis?

Yeah, absolutely. You're right, I fully appreciate and understand why they do it.

It just feels like they're missing out on an essential market. Look at Rockstar and GTA V. Sure, the PC and XBox sales were good, but the PC sales were enormous. It's still in the top 10 on Steam for goodness sake.

There are millions of us guys and girls with sufficient disposable income and passion to spend in the thousands per year on their hobby - Yet they seem to be aiming for young Timmy and David whose parents allow them a couple of hours on the console every night.

I appreciate they're both huge generalisations, but I guess you get the point. If a blow-your-socks-off was released next week that had outstanding graphics, not to mention good gameplay, we as a community would surely bump our spending on GPUs etc to embrace it.

I just fail to see why the PC market isn't taken more seriously! It gets more and more tempting to just call it a day and spaff my extra few quid on another hobby.

No, you need a CPU, some RAM and a motherboard, as well as some storage (ignoring keyboard monitor and mouse etc)

Me too, went to upgrade my 6870 and reluctantly gave up and bought a ps4 pro.
Heres the thing, It's no PC so no good for rts games but I push the on button, load any game and it just works. Amazing!
I'm sure a good rts will come out at some point pulling me back in to the fold but supreme commander and DOW are still my benchmarks and I can run them at max. In fact I think my old 8800gt maybe could too...
A real powerhouse, an absolute bargain, you should get one. Be an early adoptee.

A stop gap for what?, if your waiting on the new cards why waste good money (£300) so you say on an old card, why not get a 1050ti, dirt cheap on e*ay. If your capable, you can run most games 1080p on High.

though i dont see it as a waste, the card will still have a resell value in 6 months or a yr, and i wanted something with a bit more oomph, and from what i have found this is best bang for bux so to speak, and its not for 1080p, a bit higher up the scale tbh

just bagged a gtx980ti jetstream on fleabay for just over £250 with 14 days peace of mind, it will do for a bit
Edited by: "aberboy007" 16th Apr
Kinda sad to see that £510 is now become a good deal for this graphics card. Wasn't that long a go when they kept popping up sub £450.
Wait for the RTX! For the love of god wait for the RTX! You could be wasting £500 on a graphics card when in a year's time we could have the generational leap we seen going from the PS2 - 3 with the introduction of ray tracing. Obviously it's all conjecture and speculation but I would wait just a little longer.

I agree, but if you wait that long, might as well hold out another 18months for the TI Version, i heard it can render the universe at 8k 120hz
Only recently bought a nice 1440p 144hz freesync monitor for my very very old R9290, was considering upgrading and then realized all the good GPUs are nVidia.... So I'm kind of ***.

Need to hope AMD step up their GPU game soon or might have to stump up the money for a different monitor...

Lol yeah it is always the case there's something better coming just after
I managed to get 2 1080s in the 2016 Black Friday ebuyer deal for £500 each. Then last November I got 2 more 1080s on fleabay for £425 each. This is still a good card.
