    I think the issue is that being now 2 year old technology, means that if you do buy it, and are indeed happy with it, it would not last as long as you'd expect since it's already 2 years old. This means you'd need to replace it sooner to keep up with the newest games you might want to play, which means spending more money sooner. I mean if the prices were actually less than they were two years ago, then your argument would hold more weight, but they are the same price, not to mention new cards are due to land in the next few months. :)

    As good as they are, I just can't bring myself to buy 2 year old tech. (unless they were half this price :p)

    I think I'd bite on a 1070Ti @ £279.99~£319.99, anything else feels excessive given how old these cards are. If you can't get it for under £300 you may as well add a bit more and get the brand new variant in a few months.

    Would I notice a big difference between the 1070ti and say the 1080 armor or aero? Never noticed just how many brands of 1070-1080 there were.
    I take it in order of price reflects the order of performance?

    The Ti performs within a couple of fps of the 1080 with a manual overclocking tweak.

    Do you think an 1170 will be faster than a 1080 or do you think they will be roughly the same at a lower price point?

    It was a direct response to the Vega 56 as the Vega was beating the 1070 out easy enough. Nvidia wanted to keep there 1080 at the same pricing so went for a card in between to compete at a price in between. They could just have lowered prices on the 1080/1070 but didn't want to go that route.

    I know this,

    What I couldn't get was why people just didn't buy a 1080. The pricing was so close it made the 1070 ti an easy choice to pass on.

    I personally think it was more of a marketing exercise, gets them some press coverage, make it look like they are realising new product, and allows them to keep the price of the 1080 artificially high, increasing margins on the GPU's since many people would have done as you suggested and just skipped it. It would be interesting to see how many 1070Ti's have actually been shipped and sold vs. the 1080 in the same period of time.

    I expect the 1170 to definitely be faster than the 1080 and be no more than 10% slower than a 1080Ti.

    If the last two x70 cards (970 and 1070) are anything to go by compared to the respective 780Ti and 980Ti, the 1170 should be slightly faster over time than the 1080Ti as NVIDIA prioritises optimising the newest gen. The difference should be marginal/imperceptible though in a real world test.

    The thought of spending £900 on something with a two year warranty is hair raising.

    Edit: No worries.I ended up breaking down and buying it — will be a fun lil project to mess around with when I have a spare day. Looking forward to the haribo ;)
    Cheers, OCUK!

    Hey everyone,

    Sorry if I'm being a numpty, but does anyone know when this deal expires? — https://www.overclockers.co.uk/ocuk...e-bundle-advanced-black-shroud-bu-084-tl.html

    I currently have an Accelero Xtreme IV on my 1080ti, but I'm thinking of trying this for a bit of fun (as the Accelero does get quite warm, surprisingly!)
