So if I plan to game on 1080p for the foreseeable future, I don't need a 1070 do I? Would it make sense to wait on price drops this summer and pick something else up for sub-$200? I currently have an R9 280X which runs most stuff on High, but I would still like to trade up.

Question:

Nvidia CEO kept using "VR Performance" as comparison point. Is it higher because of the VR FPS-smoothing tech?
No, it basically just has some new tech that is more efficient at rendering multiple viewports. And I mean A LOT more efficient - like 50% more.

On a 1080p monitor, it's still a good thing if you upgrade to a 1070 as you have the option to downscale or play newer games with all the bells and whistles.

Show me the Titan Nvidia!

These cards aren't really worth it for Titan X owners.

Hoping for at least 16GB GDDR5X.
eBay prices for a used Titan X are still like $800 haha.... so if you feel like doing a little work to take it out, box it up and sell it, you're essentially being paid $200 for a ~30% upgrade in performance.

Ya I am slightly confused by this.

If just single monitor non-VR performance, I wonder what is the actual +%
The graph was pretty non-technical but eyeballing it's probably at least ~20% or 30% faster than a Titan X.

So, resale values are pretty much fucked up now. How much for a 980Ti if a 1070 is faster than a Titan X AND $379?

Well, I guess I'll stick on my SLI and wait for the 11XX series to come.

Need to resist the temptation until 1080ti, still keeping hope for HBM

Also, the 2x Titan X claim was factoring in the VR reproduction tech, was it not?.

The original graph was maybe 130% the Titan X...

This is why you sell before announcements like this.

My GTX 980 was sold 2 weeks ago.
