    If you dont want to wait thats fine. When 800 series benchmarks are out i suggest going to this site to compare to see how much of a upgrade you are getting.

    I rather suspect that once the benchmarks are out you'll find only about a 15% or so improvement over the current 770 and 780s in most games, with a few of the more demanding games showing even less improvement. It's not a significant change from the 700 series in either clock or features, much like the 700 series wasn't a significant change over the 600.


    As for myself, I'm not at all interested in it. I've got a pair of 4GB GTX 770s running in SLI, I won't be upgrading again until DirectX12 parts start coming out.

    Yes, 900 series will be out ~+year after 800 series is released.. just like jump from 600 series to 700.. (It also shouldn't add any new features.. really dislike the naming scheme currently.)

    This is really tempting. Since my current build has a pair of Sapphire HD 5870s in Crossfire-X mode and since these cards are going on their fifth year, I think it's time I looked into parts for a new build. A few things holding me back is I'm waiting on DDR4 and associated motherboards to drop and I'm waiting on the next generation CPUs as well. I really want to do a build with a completely new architecture. Besides, all my $#@! is OBSOLETE!!!

    .. sigh.

    Nvidia jumped past 8xx series.
    I really, really hate when companies go full retard with their naming schemes.
    So everything I said about 8xx = 9xx.

    Did they do an AMD where the 8 series was the Mobile versions?

    Yes.

    980 and 970 are out now. 970 is super cheap for the power so i may get one or wait for the new chipset.

    Wow yes, The 970 seems to be on par with the 780, but slightly less than the 780Ti. However he 970 has more RAM than both the 780 versions.

    Think I might go green, will be first time since 2008ish when the 8800GT came out, man that was a super awesome card for the price.

    I'm enjoying life on the green side. Though I'm stuck with team green for the next few GPUs I purchase.

    Ever since the 9700GT I've stuck with Team green. Looking at the TDP though I am staggered but I was hoping for a double performance over my GTX680 so I am going to wait and see what the next Titan classed GTK204 card is like unless I SLI two GTX980's, hmm...

    The thought of a Maxwell Titan sounds insane

    You'll definitely want to either SLI the 980 or wait for a Titan classed card. Better yet, SLI the Titan classed cards.

    But based on the benchmarks I've seen my older GTX 770 SLI setup is still faster than a single 980 by a significant margin.




    22 FPS faster in that example.

    Considering a 4GB 770 SLI setup only costs about $150 more than a single 980, you really do need to SLI the 980s to justify the price.

    Well I'm needing the performance mainly for development work and a 770 isn't a big enough update from my 680, though a 980 is a staggering difference. I would rather SLI my 680 than upgrade to a SLI 770. A Titan classed card would be more beneficial to me due to the amount of cores and the VRAM.

    When it was first announced I wanted to upgrade from a 780 but now I've thought about it, it isn't worth it. Maybe another 780 or wait until next years cards. I want a little more VRAM than 3GB

    Why not get one of the workstation cards?
