WCCF: The release date of the Next Generation Flagship GPUs from Nvidia has finally been confirmed.
Into my hands precious (Lord of Rings quote).
I know right :D :D :D. Nvidia us a taste of the maxwell power with GTX 750 Ti. And that was Maxwell Generation 1. This is Maxwell Generation 2. <3.<3
I really hope it's affordable like the 750
@Rowfius LMAO.....ROLF...OMG No. I'm sorry, but I seriously doubt it's going to be anything below $500. AMD doesn't have a rival out that we know of which means they can monopolize and price it however they want, and seeing how NVIDIA is already more expensive and their current flagship launched at $800, I seriously doubt they're going to be in a giving mood.
I'm looking forward to the GTX 880, or possibly the GTX 870. I just hope they put enough memory on them.
You need to be banned; good fucking lord.
what did he do?
New generation cards release = lower price for older cards. This means I will be able to buy something like HD7950/GTX670 dirt cheap and enjoy all games on mostly high settings, yay!
Yep, best thing to do is go on Craislist when new GPUs are announced and in sale, get dirt cheap prices on good cards.
@ XiSasukeUchiha for once I agree with you.! GTX860ti SLI yes my PRECIOUS, Oh my gorgeous PRECIOUS! Let the BENCHMARKING begin!
Can't wait to see the benchmarks from these bad boys.
<3 what would b the price ?
"Monopolistic playing field" + nvidia = LOADS
I would truly be surprised if the 880 was below $500 at launch. If they go with 4-8gb models likely 600-650 for an 8gb model (all depending on manufacturer of course). This would follow earlier releases relatively well anyways and less competition this fall means less reason to lower price any more than they would have to. It could be higher or lower but I don't realistically see it costing us less than usual. Higher is more likely but I will just wait if that's the case. There are a couple games that look demanding this fall but not "too demanding" where I am in a rush to upgrade yet. Come Witcher 3 benchmarks things might change.
The next generation is here! I want to upgrade my 670 and the 880 sounds like a perfect fit! 8GB of GDDR5 in one chip as well. Yes!! This should be able to run 4K quite well off one chip.
You should never buy the newest cards, at least in my opinion. It is simply not worth the money. I am still rocking my gtx 460 and I'm waiting for the 800-series to arrive so I can buy a GTX 760 4GB most likely :)
I need a card that can handle 4K though. I currently game at 1440p but will be upgrading to 4K later this year. My secondary PC has a 750 Ti. Good mid range card.
Why do you "need" to game at 4K? Does it really improve the experience so much it's worth it? The way the industry in some aspects focuses on graphics feels like a deception sometimes, trying to hide awful gameplay behind pretty graphics. Make no mistake, I love amazing graphics, but that is just an eyecatcher for me. It is never going to be what keeps me playing. I've played many games with "shitty" graphics that were so much more with great gameplay or co-op that made you forget all about graphics. I just really don't like how some focuses so much on graphics :)
I understand what you are saying but thanks to PC I can have both gameplay and great graphics. Up until now I have been using OGSSAA to push pixels above what my monitor can actually display.
Why do you "need" a Ferrari if a Peugeot can also get you from A to B?
imchuckbass explained it perfectly.
I've been playing at 4k since last spring 2013 and it is worth it to me. I love gfx and my boat and car, should I downgrade those for you too? Get out a lil people have always bought luxury.
I'm holding out for the 20nn ones that are coming the following year. I hear apparently there is a much higher bump more like 40 % or something in performance. I bet these will be that big a jump but time will tell when the benches release.
I have a feeling I'll pick one up next year with a couple games attached (likely FC4/AC/etc as Ubi is a big Nvidia partner nowadays). My current setup should hold me over easily till then unless early W3 benchmarks force my hand. NVidia will probably push new cards hard around then anyways so could get other free games then as well. Free games with a new card soften the blow somewhat so I'm not above waiting aittle bit longer unless wait becomes unbearable.
Would upgrading from a 760 to this make a huge difference. Sorry, I am new to PC gaming and don't know much
Do you game at only 1080p?
Best to wait for benchmarks rather than have a guess. They'll be posted before launch.
Eh, that depends what you purchase and what you want to do with it.
Wait for benchmarks, I have a 780 but doubt the 880 will be 15% more powerful
"Nvidia Maxwell Flagship GTX 880 and GTX 870 Release Date Confirmed." new $1,000 graphics card confirmed! I hope they adopt better price points. last year and before was just too crazy. 4-$500 is the highest i'll ever go.
Whats the max performance of beast like this???
28nm node, Ill pass
In no rush but hoping the newer cards can drive UE4 games @ 1080p/1440p without dipping much below 60fps, i might upgrade my aging i7 920 first and go x99.. best wait to see benchmarks i guess, not gonna waste money on something that aint much better.
wait for a bargain on eBay I always sell my cards as others do to part fund the latest model!!
Yep X99 FTW.
I got gtx460 and is time for me change card, wait or buy Gtx780ti this is the question?any advise??
they will be at least 20% (then a 780ti) faster for cheaper I'd wait for sure.
buy 780ti after people stsrt dumping them. they will have to be 100 less then the 880 used if not more and will still have warranty
Not really an upgrade unless you wait for the 16nm version next year...
How do you know that without benchmarks...
You don't need benchmarks to know how significant an upgrade going from 28nm to 16nm would be! Just look at basic compute history node fabrication?
oh i really hoped for 20nm... i'll probably get GTX 860(Ti?) or GTX 870(Ti?) if price is fair.
Finally!Getting my gtx 580 replace with a 880 for Star Citizen and Witcher 3 sweet!
Good old pc gaming! It goes "next gen" weekly!!! Not to say there is anything wrong with something like 2 year old high end pc hardware however being able to sell your old pc gear and upgrade to the latest tech constantly is an awesome option. Maybe I will replace my GTX 680s in SLI with two 880s in SLI as I want to upgrade from 2560 X 1600 gaming to 4k gaming.
dump them asap they will be worth 580 prices soon as the 880 hits
i guess i could i could slap in my 9800 gt to hold me over until the 880 is released
and i still don't give a fk, gtx 750ti is the best card in the market. Don't ask me why.
Depends what you what performance alone no! price/performance hell yeah it's up there =)
Want one day one! Hopefully the price point wont exceed £500 - £600. As ever NVidia card gen I will sell my card on eBay and put the money to the latest and greatest =).
