I thought the price for the 1070s would be around the $370 mark. Are they coming soon and the manufactures trying to stick the early guys with their $400+ models?
And then that's when we buy the 1070 for a heavy discount. no rush here as my gtx 970 is doing fine.MSRP's will only go up from here. I'm sure the 1170 will probably debut at $449 / $499(FE). AIB makers will price theirs at ~$520 to start. Demand will push it to ~$550.
But they're 2 different cards, the 1070 is much more powerful & has double the RAM. What kind of business would offer a customer a product that's essentially double the performance than the previous gen because the RAM implementation is different? (gtx 970 still has 4 gb VRAM, it's not 3.5gb. Plenty of my games show 3.9-4gb VRAM used no problem)Nvidia should allow anyone to present proof of purchase of a 970 and then sell them a comparable quality 1070 for the same price. They should do this as a way of admitting they were wrong to screw 970 buyers the way they did and offer to reconcile by, at minimum, offering them a proper replacement for the same price. Nvidia has been treating their customers like pieces of trash.
Gotta be actively looking and checking to get 1060s and 1080s right now. If you wait till after work to go hunting, chances are theres hundreds of people doing the same. I bought a 1080 at 3 am from Newegg...Everything I saw was out of stock. Well the sub $300 ones were.
