Why? Why would you be upset they release a card priced between 1070 and 1080 with the performance between 1070 and 1080? I dont get the logic of hating launching new product especially on pc hardware. They can releae a new gen every year for all i care, infact thats even better, it doesnt make your gpu absolute, it still perform the same

Coming from America though

also pretty cool they don't sell this variant in the UK, so will be rare compared to the gaming X which is what this is basically also around £50 cheaper.

with delivery as soon as Dec 8 - 13th

Seen 1080's going for not much more than this, better value for money.

Example: hotukdeals.com/dea…479

But been cheaper if you keep an eye out.

you pay more money you get more performance I guess, although yes that 1080 deal seems really good.

wasn't the gaming x plus the revised 1080s with faster memory? I know the cooler is bigger?

All of Nvidia’s partners were required to ship their respective GTX 1070 Ti cards with the reference base and boost clock rates (1,607MHz and 1,683MHz, respectively), making the cooling design (and a few brand-specific features) the only differentiation between all the GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards on the market. This means that the partners Gigabyte, MSI, EVGA etc. Have to now include separate software that the end user has to use to "overclock" the card once it's installed. This combined with the fact that the partner cannot advertise their 'true' clock speed after using the software means that the customer does not know what they will be getting by looking at the item alone without seeking more information from a review from someone with that specific model. It has made purchasing less transparent for the customer.

This is what pushed me to buy the 1080 instead. As others have said, for a little more you can bag a 1080 which is way worth it IMO.

Ever heard of MSI Afterburner?

So my setup is pretty dated & i'm running a gtx 560ti with a i52500k and 8gb of ram in a shuttle case. I wanna upgrade to something more up to date since i feel the gpu is the bottleneck but it needs to be somewhat small to fit in my case. Any ideas for a mid range at a decent price?

And this is the reason why it is a win-win situation for Nvidia, as it doesn't matter if people bought 1070, 1070Ti or 1080, they still get your money at the end of the day. The real slap in the face with the 1070Ti is that is it a "new" card that's using the same old tech as the 1070 and 1080 architecture that was released over a year ago; they are pulling an "Intel" on dip-feeding their user base due to the lack of serious competition from its competitor.

AMD's new Ryren CPU line has forced Intel to stop screwing around with the pitiful +3~5% IPC performance increase per gen and FINALLY realise a 6 cores CPU for mainstream market at sub £300; we need AMD to do the same (though I doubt it) and force Nvidia actually put their good cards onto the market that's not at extortionate pricing (*cough* 80Ti...*cough* Titan), instead of stashing away the more powerful GPU design that we all know they already have and ready but keep on delaying their release due to lack of competition.

Believe it or not it takes time to bring new technology to the market and when they push the edge of what is possible on current manufacturing nodes then it is expensive and difficult to build. GTX1080ti being the most expensive and difficult to build.

Vega 64 is a massive die with expensive memory and despite being like £450 AMD allegedly make no money on them. Nvidia's margins on GTX1080ti are likely better (actually profitable) but I doubt they are gouging very much.

Gouging is building something for £300 and selling it for £1000. Introducing the new iPhone X.

It's just because someone can get something faster than their card that was once top of the pile. Boys and their toys

Except the 1070, 1080, 1080Ti realistic don't cost Nvidia more to make than back in the days for the 670, 680, 780, but they now launching the new gen cards at a higher price brackets. Also remember when back in the days when Nvidia was still on the 500 series, with product line of GTX 560, 560Ti (mid-range chip), 570, 580 (flagship chip)? Now they just changed what they calling their cards in terms of model number for the sake of selling at higher price, with the mid-range chip 60 to 70, 60Ti to 80, for large chip 70 to 80Ti, 80 to Titan.

Nvidia managed to pull this off all thanks to AMD haven't been able to compete on performance.

Incorrect. The current 16/14nm node generation (and further evolutions of it) is considerably more expensive than the 28nm node. The closer you get to the smallest possible silicon transistor the harder and harder it gets to perfect and iron out the issues. It dramatically increases research costs, installation of mass production lines etc. It costs BILLIONS of dollars to setup a modern 14nm fab. Not hundreds of millions. Billions.

The memory is currently MUCH more expensive as well right now. General inflation is also a thing.

Competition will always help prices but I did point out that AMD's Vega chips allegedly make no money with the boards selling for £400 plus at retail. Considering a GTX1080ti is considerably faster and just as complex to make then for Nvidia to make anything at all it has to cost more.

These GPU so flipping expensive nowadays!! (Especially since Brexit and mining craze!! )

Except the prices have already been greatly increased with that mid-range chip cards (1070/1080) are now being launched and sold at old flagship pricing. Remember when the cards with big, flagship chipset launch and sold at just under £600 i.e. GTX780? Guess what? Card with mid-range chipset (1080) was launch a over £600+!

Yes the pound value might have greatly fallen since then, but there's no excuse for the 1080 to launch at $699 comparing to the 780 launching at $650 that has a much large die for the GPU.

It honestly depends on your budget, but I'd either recommend the 1050ti, there's a really small version that doesn't require any power cables either
If not just go for a 750ti, still a great card

I'm not quite sure how else to to tell you that every generations costs a lot more to build, and in this case the costs have increased even more so than usual without repeating myself. The finFET process used is far more expensive to make a chip on and the relative cost of memory at the moment is at record highs for years.

You say 'except' but still don't seem to acknowledge or understand how much the cost has increased to tape out a chip over the 28nm planar generations you keep using as examples.

I can only find you something like this: which explains the enormous increases for modern process advances. It talks about the cost of taping out an SoC but the same applies (actually more so) to the biggest and most complex consumer chips designed which are GPUs.

Note particularly this section: "Not long ago, it was a straightforward and inexpensive effort to migrate from one node to another. But the dynamics appeared to change at 16nm/14nm, when foundry vendors introduced finFET transistors for leading-edge designs."

And this: "While finFETs keep the industry on the scaling path, the problem is that fewer and fewer foundry customers can afford the technology. In total, the average IC design cost for a 14nm chip is about $80 million, compared to $30 million for a 28nm planar device, according to Gartner."

I hope this helps your understanding of the situation compared to previous 28nm generations.

Banned

picked up the MSI 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO yesterday,
wasn't too sure about the base clocks (1569 mhz) and OC (1683mhz)....... but this things a beast!

Out of the box it's pushing 1911mhz just on standard base clock, haven't even tried overclocking it yet
