What I'm trying to figure out is why this costs so much less than the Titan X >< Is it because it costs less to produce? Or as a random person wrote online, the Titan X's main purpose was rendering, not gaming?

Feeling kinda stupid now for buying a Titan X lol. But maybe if the price goes down, I'll just sli my Titan X. Or await the new gpu's allegedly coming next year (1080 TI, and Pascal Titan)

The 1070 looks amazing around the $400 price point.

Did I not tell you this was coming very soon? I swear I did.

Usually the hope is the x70's will outperform the previous generation x80's if not possibly the highest line like this generation was kind of expected to do. This was always going to be a bigger jump than normal because of Nvidia moving to the 16nm FinFET process

You did, you did, and I am kicking myself LOL. I just didn't think it was so soon. I had read a rumor saying it'd show up in the 3rd quarter of the year. And I just expected it to be more expensive.

I was really hoping it'd be a bit cheaper. The previous 2 gens went down in price if I remember right.

This happens all the time. If you keep waiting for new tech you will be waiting forever. So I don't think you should regret your purpose. Your gpu is still going to be a bit better than the 1080 I believe. It uses different memory and has a much bigger die size. The 1080 is more effecient and clocked very high to even compete with the 980 ti and titanx


I was trying to comfort you with this comment. I can't lie. The 1080 is most likely going to outperform the 980 ti and Titan X.

I'm still deciding if I want to upgrade and if I do to the 1070 or 1080. Even the 1070 is going to be a fairly big jump over the 390 from what I'm seeing and at a very reasonable price point. Used GPU's are very easy to sell so the loss won't be that bad if I even decide to get rid of the 390. I may just keep it around honestly.
