Well AMD have gone 14nm FinFet so they may actually rival nvidia with the smaller process. We can only wait and see.

I personally have always preferred Nvidia and will most likely buy an Nvidia GPU but maybe not the pascal series I think on this occassion Nvidia have gotten a little bit greedy although I'm still holding out a little hope that the board partners release thier cards at the lowest MSRP that nvidia have quoted which should put them at around the £550 mark

Well we all know the process isnt everything. The architecture and itd focus will play a decent part too.

Ok found the euro pricing for the GTX 1080 and its only 657 euro that's only just over £500 and from what I understand we don't have to pay import tax on anything purchased within the EU other than alcohol and tobacco.

This could be a way of grabbing a card at a reasonable price

Germany and france charge at the 789 euro rate because of their extra high tax

Looks like the Australian pricing is not going to be cheap either which i knew it wasn't going to be but this might be the pricing.

From Kotaku not sure how good they are, But that's if the pricing is correct.

Quote:
A Kotaku Australia reader has sent in a quote from a local retailer quoting the price of a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 8GB at a staggering $1,299 excluding shipping. The figure was apparently published by accident and picked up by Google Cache, although the listing has since been taken down from the main website.

Another retailer told me they would begin offering the Founders Edition of the GTX 1080 from $1199. They only did so under the veil of anonymity, however, to avoid risking the wrath of the GPU giant. That would mean the Founders Edition would be priced noticeably above the GTX 980 Ti, which most major retailers are selling for around $870 and $950 according to a StaticICE search.

I understand what you're saying, new product, hype and will sell well but consider the other side of it;

Intel brought Skylake out and due to the prices, people ended up buying 5820K's instead (me included). I don't think that was part of their plan.

For the type of silly money this 1080 is going for, i may as well bankrupt myself and get the Radeon Pro Duo instead!
