    Default Already eyeballing my next GPU upgrade. Pascal is coming.

    Looks like the most expensive is valued at over $800 USD, with a $600 value on the cheapest model. I wonder if this is their wholesale or retail price that's listed for shipping.

    It's usually a list price, which is something that's never paid. It would be a wise guess that if one was listed at around $800, that would be the "Ti" model, which, when actually sold by vendors, would probably be down to around the price we see for the current "Ti" models.

    They will demo based on the new "Titan" model, which as we all know, will end up selling for at around $1,000.

    Can't wait for this, as my entire new build is based off of this (and Broadwell-E) :)

    I splurged on a SLI setup a few months ago and a 144hz monitor. I'm also waiting patiently now for Broadwell-E. Hopefully my 850W PSU will be substantial enough for an i-7. Might be selling my 850G2 to a fellow AOD member if not...

    Looks like additional details have surfaced!

    http://wccftech.com/nvidia-pascal-gt...pril-gtc-2016/

    Some of the details look similar to another report but the bit about the card models and release timing is new.

    So if this report is accurate, in May, we'll get:

    - GTX 1080: 8 GB RAM, SINGLE 8-pin power connector! This backs up what many of us already knew about the improved thermal design of the Pascal series over Maxwell.
    - GTX 1070: I don't see any mention of the amount of RAM on this one, but I would assume 6 GB. I think a GTX 1060 model that would be released later on would be the one with 4 GB. Have we reached the end of 2 GB cards in the mainstream? Power-wise, would assume the same single 8-pin connector.


    This GTX 1080 won't use HBM2, though, which I guess they're saving for the "Ti" and "Titan" models.



    Nom nom nom nom nom :)

    I was dissapointed to hear that the GTX 1080 will NOT be utilizing HBM2 Memory, rather GDDR5X. Deal breaker for me. Probably their higher-end SKU's will have it(Whatever their going to decide to name it)

    Titan Y? They already used Z and X, so the only logical way to go is Y.

    I dont think theyll change that nomenclature, but the Numbers(EX: 980, 1080, ETC). Z can still be used because its a different line of GPU's

    It will be interesting to see if pascal is all that its cracked up to be.

    Latest news...

    http://www.mnrdaily.com/article/nvid...-2016/9607.htm



    So perhaps we're going to get these three at launch?

    - X80
    - X80 Ti
    - X80 Titan

    I seriously may consider looking at the Titan this go round...

    My only concern with that is the cost to performance ratio, I mean the Titan X compared to the 980ti really wasn't that big of a performance increase for the price. For instance, with all sliders maxed out in The Division, the ti only performed 1-3 frames worse than the Titan X. But perhaps this will all change. Best not to impulse buy when they first come out and wait and see what the community has to say about them.
