When do the new ATI or nvdia graphics cards come out?

#1yhmusicPosted 10/10/2013 9:40:39 PM
Im debating buying a 780 now or waiting? Will there be any decent black friday or holiday sales? Or will new cards lower the price of the 780 at all? Thanks.

The 880 is supposedly due out in Q1 of next year, so March probably. I wouldn't count on a decent sale though. My card (670 FTW) is almost two years old and is still retailing for $400.

After looking at the 780's benchmarks, it was laughable trying to justify the price/performance of it. Sure there is something to be said for having one of the most powerful single card solutions, but common sense has to play a part in your decision making if you're not made of money.

It's that or the 770. Still deciding. But idk if the 770 will last that long on next gen titles.

As long as it has 4 GB of memory it will last nearly as long as the 780

The 770 has pretty s*** value too. It's about $100 overpriced.

The thing is the R9 280X has somewhere in between the GTX 770 and GTX 780 level performance for about $100 less than the GTX770

Most people who have dealth with ATI / Nvidia drivers in recent years, most of the major problems occur when you CrossFire / SLI.

If you're only going to deal with a single GPU graphics card, there shouldn't be too many issues with drivers, so AMD / ATI vs Nvidia on single GPU graphics card drivers is really a wash.

At this point, I would consider bang for your buck and how long you plan to keep your rig in it's current state.

We do know Maxwell is around the corner, but Nvidia will likely shift the performance / price tier of it's upper end GTX 7## line down one, I doubt it's going to be a drastic price cut.

AMD / ATI is trying to force Nvidia's hand, but the only reaction they've done is drop prices on their lower end cards

If you only care about price to performance ratio, AMD Radeon R9 280X is probably the best bang for your buck at the moment.

The Asus model with it's custom cooler is my favorite so far out of the R9 280X lineup.

It has the best balance of perf, power draw, noise, and cooling.

But that's my take.

Originally I was going to consider a GTX 760, but with the R9 280X coming out, it's very hard to justify the value of the GTX 760 compared to the competition.

^What he said. That pretty sums up my entire thinking as I look to build in the next week or so.
