looking forward to next years GPU and CPU offerings immensely. I know its ridiculous but i have a feeling that we are about to see some big improvements reminiscent of the Core2 duo and 8800GT. Though i hope its all of the 'teams' putting out winners.

Team green should see the biggest jump like the 8800 I just hope AMD does not have a disaster like the 2900 series.

I don't think we'll see nVidia make massive improvements unless AMD catch them unawares. Why try when you have that much of the market? It works for Intel.



If they look like they are going to release a new GPU early-mid 2016 it looks like I'll be holding onto my Sqeeky Ti for a bit longer. This looks like it is going to be a great year in computer tech!

I would disagree there. AMD is behind in power consumption and if they can significantly lower power draw I think that alone gives them the biggest jump. In outright performance between the two i suspect them to be equal. AMD are more likely to go 14nm FF(GloFo) and Nvidia are more likely to go 16nm FF(TSMC) which should equal out to even in performance if Nvidia's architecture is more efficient(performance not power).

I will likely end up buying one of the variants of these, since I'll be upgrading my GPU for sure next year.

On another note, 2016 is going to be a year to look forward to! Lots of new high-end pc hardware being released.
