It is not.
Spending that much on any hardware is not value for money. Though this depends on your perspective of value, of which for most it is not.
And just because there is no AMD competition at this level, doesn't automatically make it great value. If anything it's worse.

Nothing counts, they're too expensive. Maybe not to you, but to any enthusiast who doesn't have your money we have been completely priced out of the market.

Agreed. This is an obvious case of Nvidia taking advantage of the no-competition situation right now. This card sure as hell isn't a "deal" in any way. Comparing the price to the retardedly over-priced Titan isn't justification either.

£700 to play this round of classic console slop. Um ya, no thanks.

So we go to the next "cheapest" option. The 1080. Which Nvidia have just "discounted" to £500 even. Still utterly ridiculous. For £350 I can get a PS4 Pro entire machine that will knock out games looking pretty much identical to this crap.

Seriously, for all of the years I have been into PC gaming (since around 1994) I can't remember a time where things were this bad.

Every single move being made (by hardware manus and game devs) is just pushing me further and further away.

I look at the price and tom's results then consider how long gaming at 1080p I'd get out of it before I'd have to turn settings down to low or upgrade, I think I'd get my money's worth out of it. If Vega performs as well as this I'd bet the price will not be that much cheaper probably £625

Nvidia are now knocking out a £700 card every seven months. So that's £1400 a year they are getting out of PC gamers with the cash to pay it. £1400 a year? lmao. Seriously. lmao.

Because there's just this enormous great stack of amazing looking games worth paying £1400 a year for.

You have to take into account the Nvidia fandom. People love to upgrade to the newest and greatest even if they don't need it.

The thing is they need it. But my problem isn't that they need it it's why they need it.

For 1440p ultra I need a 1080ti. But it's only like twice as expensive as it needs to be for it to be affordable. And why? because games have taken a massive nose dive thanks to the new consoles.

£1400 a year just to play console games at a decent FPS.

I have to laugh at some of the comments about the value of the 1080 Ti.

If NVidia had priced it at £500 there would still be people complaining !!!

If NVidia had priced it at £400 there would still be people complaining !!!

On another respected website review it is actually pointed out that the 1080 Ti offers better bang for buck @2160p than a 390X or a GTX980 Ti and several other popular cards for that matter.

I know what you mean.

I've been using a Fury at 1440p for going on two years now. It's flown by. I'm ready to upgrade, but I'm happy to wait as well as the games I'm playing don't need any more horsepower. And the games that do ask for a little more, I'm happy to turn settings down to compensate. While I must admit I am quite attached to how high FPS (90+) feels, I'm not willing to spend any more than £600 every 18 months to achieve it. I'd rather turn settings down than spend that much. The 1080ti makes me want to upgrade to a GPU as powerful as that because of greed and lust, not necessity.
