    I was extremely interested in one of these but if these early benchmarks are true 25% to 35% increase at £1100 doesn't represent good value for me. Look forward to seeing what these are capable at when overclocked though.

    Cheaper than I thought they would be but the gaming performance looks like a lower increase over the 1080 than the original Titan X was to the 980. I mean in some titles you won't even be able to notice the difference.

    My thought process was £700 for a decent 1080 and I'll have to wait.. £400 more I am getting a titan x and can still make some money off my 980ti so happy overall.

    Just hope my 3770k doesn't bottle neck it

    Gone for it. Selling my 1080 FE after barely 2 months.

    Again NVidia fuelling the delusion that over a grand for a card that's slightly faster than an already overpriced 1080 is worth it. Seems like we're being programmed to believe these ludicrous prices are somehow good or fair. Ooh so its not 1200 or 1300 and ONLY 1100? Bargain!

    I don't think anyone said the prices are good or fair. Less than what people were expecting maybe. It's overpriced but then so is any piece of top of the range kit be it car, TV, whatever.

    Nope, a few have got cards, including myself, and we're not under NDA.

    My sample hits about 1,950MHz core under OC load, but the cooler holds it back.

    Fantasying about getting one but I don't have the money till Friday and I'm gonna wait on more solid reviews on the performance. Most probably go for 1070 sli and see what happens two years later.

    Nice clocks and higher than I was expecting. Do you have any benchmarks done?

    Ah the premium "thermal" strikes again. :p Obviously just the cooler from the 1080 with a paint job.

    I very much doubt your 3770k cpu will be a bottleneck yet, i'd imagine you have it overclocked as well. Them chips overclock like a dream, i got mine running stable at 4.6ghz for the last 2 years.

    So is there any real performance increase (real world) for a pair of these over a pair of 1080's? Given that both pairs would be oc'd and under water? The benchmarks that I have seen suggest not.

    Cheers

    That's the hardest benchmark.

    Still not the 4k gpu were after then. But it should be a beast on anything lower.

    You need SLI/CF for 4K (max settings, etc), and always will. It's just the wait it is.

    Those gains look nice, 30% over stock 1080 FE. It is overpriced but then all of the previous Titans were too in terms of raw performance per dollar numbers.

    People who buy this will definitely enjoy it for a good while. More power to them.

    I bought a couple of Titans, a couple of Titan Blacks and a Titan X. I'm out on this one. Gonna wait for Volta or perhaps even AMD will get their house in order.

    So gpu's are never going to reach the point where running 4k is like it running 1080? ok....:eek:
