GPU pricing is expected to drop in July

Mining demand has waned and GPUs are reportedly piling up at retail.



Read more about expected drops in GPU pricing next month.

I wonder how many 'should I wait for next-gen or should I buy a 1080Ti for €700' threads there will be?

lol who was it who said I was wrong again? oh yeah, the dude I have on ignore.

Man from Taiwan is never wrong, ever.

I like how this all went. It lasted just long enough for Nvidia to make a buttload of cards, then died leaving them holding the baby just as I said it would.

AGF - I can answer that right now (the thread title). Buy a 10 series. Main reason is these are out of Nvidia's hands now and old stock. Thus, you *will* get a better deal on these than any new card Nvidia jack the price up on.

I bought my GTX 470 when stocks were piled up for £174. I paid £25 for a Zalman cooler. Then the 570 came out at around £300, I overclocked and pretty much had the same card.

Unless you want bleeding edge performance? *always* avoid the new cards and wait for deals on the older ones.

If you are referring to me being on your ignore list you sure do post regarding me a lot. Kinda useless.

As for your man he wasn't really right. Everybody is reporting this because of the expected next gen cards. It doesn't take an "insider" to figure this out

No I wasn't referring to you or else I would not be typing this

As it happens the information, as usual, came from Asus in Taiwan. I would imagine Asus have played it about as safely as they could, as they could see it as a finite entity.

I guess we will find out who made the most once OCUK start dropping the prices on them lol.

I dunno. If the new series has some of the new Volta features, video game developers could start pushing their games to take advantage of the new power. Then Pascal and Maxwell will fall off the map and the 1180 could end up being significantly faster than a 1080Ti at a much lower TDP.

Well we have already had the Titan V so we have a rough idea of how fast Volta is. It's not like we have not seen anything Volta yet. It is the expected change from a Titan Xp. Around 30-40%, which is about right. However many of the features are thus far useless, and the cooling is woefully inadequate. It was inadequate for a Titan XP (as I found out, hence 240mm water.).

The 1180 may be faster than the 1080Ti/Xp but that remains to be seen. However, it is made from the latest materials (especially things scarce like VRAM) so it will carry a price to suit.

What you need to ask yourself (whilst remaining calm and not getting carried away/excited) is "Do I need it". Without spending hours boring you I will just say this - games right now need no more than a 1080Ti, period. Even if you are running 4k one is more than ample.

So then with that out of the way, right, we can move onto Volta. It supports proper Ray Tracing. Yes, *early* ray tracing which will be nothing like the full deal. Are there any RT games coming with the card/s? no. How much better will Metro be with RT? we have no idea, but if it's anything like the DX11 version of Dirt 2 vs a hacked DX10? lol no way. It was three years before we started getting true DX11 titles that actually took us to the next level.

Which, if we go around in a circle, leads us back to where we are now. Do you need more than a 1080Ti? no, no you don't.

My XP kicked ass when I got it and it kicks ass now. Why? lol, because pretty much all of the games I have played on it were designed for something else entirely (consoles !) and thus there is hardly any difference playing a 4k game on my PC VS playing it at 4k on my XB1X. So how many games are going to either defy the console sales and be purely made for RT (don't even answer that, I can tell you now - none) and how many will have it bodged on for now? all of them.

Well, until RT comes in the consoles which isn't likely ATM given the contracts all belong to AMD pmsl.

A lot of users don't think like that though. They don't care that a 1080Ti is enough. IF they see an 1180 significantly outpacing a 1080Ti in even one or two games, they might take that as a sign of the times and jump ship.

Dunno tbh. As I admitted the other day I've gone off all of this stuff so I haven't been reading many computer forums. I think a lot of people have left due to being fed up and etc. It's not just the GPU prices that did this (to me at least) but the prices of RAM and so on. Every time I looked at an upgrade for my rig it was stupendously expensive, so I spent the money elsewhere.

I really wanted to put bigger SSDs in, more (faster) memory and so on. But every time I have priced it up I've just thought "nah, not worth it".

It has all damaged PC gaming in a big way.
