According to some "leaks" the 880/980 will not be competing with the 780 Ti but rather the 780 so we might be seeing a 880 Ti/980 Ti.

The 880 etc could just be rebrands for OEM stuff.

Some news from overclockers.co.uk about the upcoming 900 series cards.

Gibbo is one of the main staff members that interacts with the community and is also one of the main buyers at the OCUK store, He just let this out -

the 800 were OEM only, this has been known for a while!

I read that Gibbo comment, and thought to myself.....surely he's joking!

I don't think he is, Even a friend of mine who works at scan said and I quote "Unless you need more vram I wouldn't bother getting the 900 series if you have a 780 Ti or more".

Gibbos comment just validates what my mate said.

well ill just wait till these come out and get the 780Ti or maybe even 2 of them

its such a shame really, it seems that technological breakthroughs are wider and wider apart makes you think we've exhausted all options

Comes down to 1 fact, Milking, why keep advancing the tech in large portions when you can slow it down and release 5% increases every year, Just business really.

I guess the VRAM increase is nice though. Not going to lie, 3gb is becoming increasingly easy to use up :I.

-edit- still happy I bought my 780TI though now. Glad I didn't wait as it sounds like I've not missed anything special.

It's still on the 28nm process, Even getting 5% out of it would be amazing.

so basically we are looking at an improved 780 with much lower power usage?
