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.

Maybe the problem is that you don't understand the meaning of the word "mainstream"? 600-700 Euro will not be mainstream, it's already enthusiast level. Listen to what AMD is saying all the time, they are preparing affordable VR-ready GPUs. They won't cost nearly as much and from nVidia the competition will be the 1070.



Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!

My Vita to-buy list: The Walking Dead, Persona 4 Golden, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, TearAway, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, History: Legends of War, FIFA 13, Final Fantasy HD X, X-2, Worms Revolution Extreme, The Amazing Spiderman, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - too many no-gaemz :/

My consoles: PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim 320 GB, PSV 32 GB, Wii, DSi.

So Computerbase finally tested the first custom 1080. The Strix OC from ASUS goes up to 2000MHz.

And it's still just 22% above an overclocked 980ti. People who are switching from that are crazy.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Looks like the GTX 1070 is gonna be around 500 euros.

I need someone from America to help me buy it from there and ship it to me, anyone willing to help?
