600-700$, no Euros.

Also, keep in mind our definitions of mainstream prices will probably change due to the expensive nature of VR.

What is mainstream for usual gaming will be probably 30-50% higher for VR-ready systems.

Don't hold your breath, it will be 600-700 Euro in Europe, at least in the beginning.

No, the definitions won't change. Mainstream is what the vast majority has. It will either be the 1070 or an AMD card, considering their plan to go strong into mainstream VR. I see no reason why people with 1070 would think their cards are too weak to try VR.

Hey, whenever you can, send me the model of the crystal ball you own so I can look it up on ebay.


Thanks.

The only thing that's going to stop me getting one of these beauties in August is AMD releasing Vega in October, assuming that it's more of a Beast than the 1080.



Tek Syndicate video killed my hype for this gen of cards, leaning towards waiting for the 1100 series now.

Depending on what you have right now, the 1080 is a good option. Or what did it say was wrong with it?

He did a really down to earth review, that's it.

If you want me to provide some links, I'll post them.

Been a while since I've watched Tek as I mostly watch Linus but you should go ahead and post Tek's views on the new gen cards because I'd love to get his/their pov on the new line.

All these reviews do for me is making me more hyped for the Titan. After all the 1080 is just a shrinked 980 with higher clock.

What you really want is a dual Big Pascal SLI. Should be a gigantic leap over the 980ti and at higher resolutions even more. With that setup I might jump to a higher resolution even sooner. I just set my eyes on a new monitor which is 35" 3440x1440 144Hz.

Good performance boost. Still waiting for the big pascal chips EG 1080ti and Pascal Titan before i buy any new GPUs. One thing i did find interesting is the lack of a boost from DX12. If you look at it the Nvidia cards were roughly the same performance between DX11 and DX12. Looks like it might suffer in the same ways that Maxwell did no Async compute or maybe its something else? Either way will be interesting to see how the drivers mature.



I mostly play RTS and Moba style games now adays as well as ALOT of benchmarking. I do play other games however such as the witcher 3 and Crysis 3, and recently Ashes of the Singularity. I love gaming on the cutting edge and refuse to accept any compromises. Proud member of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race. Long Live SHIO!!!! 

Well Nvidia themselves said Pascal and Maxwell offer the same performance per clock. So its the high clocks, lower power consumption and new features that stand out the most.

I'm GPU-less right now, so i'm considering the first EVGA 1080 card that pops up that does 2100Mhz+ but first i want to see the overclockability of the 1070.

I can always sell it before they launch the 1080ti and recoup my money back.
