According to the sources, they will be 50% more powerful than the 1080 FE, which is pretty incredible.

The thing that blows me away about this is the fact that video card technology is advancing at a much more rapid pace than pcu advancement. I mean in the past 3 or 4 years, we've seen ~10% improvement in high-end processors while we've seen a 300% increase in gpus.

According to some speculative tech articles I've read, the new Pascal Titans will be so powerful they will actually bottleneck any PCU lesser than a 6700k Skylake. Right now, I'm guessing that includes about 90% of the PC market.:shock: The other big talking point is the introductory price of the new Titan series. As we're currently seeing with the 1070s and 1080s, vendors are completely ignoring Nvidia's MSRPs on cards. 1070's were supposed to be in the $360 range. Instead they're almost universally selling in the $500 range, and that isn't slowing demand.

Not really too surprised GPUs are leap frogging ahead. 144hz and 4K monitors are dropping in price. GPUs need to be beefier to keep up. Great for emulating a gameboy ;)

Now we're talking. I'll take 2 big Pascals for my main rig. My 980Ti's will be retired for the HTPC/couch gamer.

They said NVIDIA WANTS it to have 50% more performance than that 1080... in what? VR? Need to know!!! :)

Yeah, have to read between the lines in terms of performance metrics here. Could even just be in compute? I would be surprised to see that big of a jump. That said, probably still better off with a 1080ti whenever that releases as it will likely (similar to a 980ti) cost multiple hundreds less than the titan and have the same performance for all intents and purposes.

Yep, was thinking of this one actually.

it's going to be 15-20% faster than the 1080 and $1000. i'm calling it now. can't wait to get my enthusiast key so i can triple sli and play the original metroid at 400,000 fps on rockNES.

Pretty sure that program was dropped (Enthusiast key)

As soon as August? I bet the 1080Ti isn't that far behind then, Q1 2017 perhaps?

Many non FE 1070s, the only ones anyone should purchase, are actually going from $399.99 to around $450 at Newegg and Microcenter with other overpriced models near $500. Newegg has 6 1070s priced at under $450.
