I agree that releasing or announcing new GeForce GPU's so incredibly soon after the launch of the 1080 Ti, 2 months, Titan Xp, 1 month and 11Gbps 1080 would be a huge maHOOsive slap in the face for customers and graphics board partners but Nvidia have shown that they don't really have any respect for customers or board partners so a new GeForce announcement wouldn't surprise me.

Also note that there is no mention of gaming or Geforce in their image, just AI.

They don't care about any of that. Any time they release two Titan cards per tech they are dealing the best pimp slap you could possibly land.

The truly sad thing is there are people who justify Nvidia's actions by continually buying their uber expensive Titan cards twice per gen, Next gen they will probably release 3 different Titan cards and there'll be people out there that will buy all 3.

Yup. Whilst I hate Nvidia's business practices they are only punishing fools so it doesn't bother me. Fool + money = easily parted.

To me this should have been

No Competition + Fools + Money = Easy Sales No Matter The Price.

Whilst I am guilty of it to a degree 780Ti's & 980Ti's on launch day within 5 minutes of watching Tom's Review, I generally only upgrade when a new Ti card comes out but currently I am happy with 980Ti's although not having a job has, put a stop to buying 2 MSI Seahawk GTX 1080Ti's.

I am getting fed up with this whole "here is a new cpu/gpu it only performs 5-10% faster than your old one but were gonna charge ~10% more" from nVidia and Intel.

AMD really could have had me switching to them with Ryzen but the performance is just not there for me, and neither is the overclocking.

IF Vega is any good then you might see a chunk of nVidia's market share drop because hopefully people will jump to AMD for better DX12 support and Freesync which doesn't cost an arm and a leg not really much else I can think of that AMD offer over nVidia but it's been that long since I used them, or even researched them properly when buying new hardware.

Ryzen has more than enough performance. It just does not have support, yet. 4ghz would also be amazing if it wasn't for that core support. If all 16 threads were humming along 4ghz would be a more than acceptable clock speed I assure you. I have a 3.1ghz Ivy Xeon and when all 8c 16t are going it demolishes I5s and I7s.

Gaming on four cores? if that is all you are doing then what you have is fine. However, take it above four cores and the 1700 will demolish your 6700k.

I have a really sneaking suspicion that we won't be on four cores for much longer. If Intel want to justify the ludicrous prices of the I9 they are going to need people to make sure that it can show off all of those cores AND clock well.

I think by the time DX12 becomes important Nvidia will have a card to take care of it. Right now it's "tick tick" for them and they are dragging their feet. However, I think Volta will level the playing field on DX12 and they will want them to sell, so yeah, sooner rather than later.

All of this, especially that last part, is what has gotten me thinking of maybe switching over to Ryzen 1700 and Biostar mITX for my soon Dan Case A4 SFX v2. But also cause of the lower TDP, which will make a huge difference in that small and compact case.

Although I barely game anything these days, it would be nice to "futureproof" yourself a bit with Ryzen. Since my current 7700K probably won't last as long as an 1700 would for example. Specially if games would become more multi threaded.

And cause of the fact that I want to support AMD and gotten fed up with the bad attitude and prices of which both Intel and Nvidia for that matter, are running and has been for some time now.

Don't bother with the Biostar board dude. Asus will only release a Strix and you'll kick yourself. I had this discussion on another forum but the long and short of it was that we agreed that the reason there aren't many ITX boards yet is because we don't have the Ryzen APUs yet. As such many boards would end up being sent back because the user would not get a signal from the HDMI port the board would carry. So I would fully expect to see more (better) ITX boards coming along when the APU does.

If you are not overclocking I guess it would be fine.

The only Intel CPU I have bought new came as part of a system. All of the others I have had are either Xeons I got cheap or second hand. The last time I bought a brand new retail boxed Intel was a I7 950 about eight years ago.
