AYOOO SO HOL UP! The first Pascal cards won't be released until the end of 2016? Why shouldn't I buy a 980ti now then?

No.

It depends what you're upgrading from.
Also AMD's next line is coming out earlier.

But I guess you're a fanboy so you can buy whatever you want and rationalise away your decision afterwards. Le no driver le wattage le whatever, you know.

I'd like to buy AMD but I do muh gaymen on Linux and that shit is clownshoes
>>
>>52435002
While that's true, gaming on linux is retarded.
>>
>>52435029
Meme all you want, there are plenty of great games with Linux support and many, many more to come

So when did newegg start this "VR ready" marketing crap?

>>52435046
I think he means that Nvidia's proprietary driver is still significantly better than the open source driver that AMD is backing.

ftfy

Top-tier Pascals will be 20% better than the 980ti at best. Besides, when the Pascals finally come out, people will tell you to wait for the next ones.

Only thing that matters is that is the 980ti worth the money for you right now.

Technically he still said it.

Yeah, I got a 980 Ti EVGA FTW with back plate for ~$585.

If Pascal will be released very late this year, I would advise getting a cheap or good deal on a 980 Ti. Got it running at 1500 Mhz on air no problem.

Oh and it came with that tomb raider game that I sold for $40 easy. So really $545.

What he said. High end Pascal, the cards that might have significant improvement compared to the 980ti, will not release at launch.
Q2 is rumored date for Pascal's release, but they will probably launch with x80, x70 and x60 cards first, then Titan Y a few months later, and Ti another three months after that.
A 980 Ti will still run AAA games up to 1440p at Max settings for the near future, so unless you want single-card VR or 4K, there's no real reason to wait, this is a freaking fast chip as it is.

Your implication is cute.

But will the Pascals be better than a 980 Ti Kingpin?
