Hi,

From what I recall the gtx 780ti was the equivalent to the gtx 980ti when it came out in terms of being "top of the line". However, when the gtx 900 series came out, specifically the gtx 970, the gtx 780ti lost its value quickly after to a much cheaper card ( the gtx 970), that would trade blows with the 780ti while being cooler and using less performance.

What are the chances of this scenario playing out again between the gtx 980ti and the gtxs 1070? I currently own a 980ti, but I would be happy to sell it before its value goes down, get a gtx 1070, and have some money left over.

Can anyone with some experience in the field, and that has been following the trend answer this question?

Thanks!

Anything before the embargo lifts and reviews can be published will be only guesses and hearsay.

When can we expect some reviews and some proper comparisons with benchmark software and games?

Rumors are for the 1080 on may 17th. So sometime between then and the launch of the 27th. I don't know of 1070 reviews will come out at the same time because the launch is an additional ~month out past the 1080.
