At Overclockers UK Nvidia's Reference GTX 980Ti has been reduced to £509.99 in order to combat AMD's fierce competition from their new R9 Fury X GPU. Let's hope this price war continues into the future as AMD released their R9 Fury and other Fiji based GPUs at lower price points.  

Both AMD's R9 Fury and GTX 980Ti are fantastic GPUs, with AMD's R9 Fury X is smaller and runs cooler and quieter, Nvidia's GTX 980Ti delivers slightly greater performance in most of our game tests and a right now includes a game code for Batman: Arkham Knight.

The release of AMD's R9 Fury X has really shaken up the GPU market, driving down prices and giving consumers some much needed choice. AMD still has some Fiji based GPUs up it's sleeves for the coming months, so expect the GPU market to continue to remain just as fiercely competitive.

It'll be everywhere soon enough. Then AMD will drop the Fury X price and Nvidia will have to counter.

I know people seem to think it's incredibly clever buying a 980ti now since the Fury X isn't conclusively faster but it's actually a really terrible idea to buy now.

The price war hasn't even started yet.Quote

I can understand where you are coming from, although for me personally, I don't like AIO coolers on graphics card. Sure they are benefitial, but I don't like them nor think they are very efficient inside a PC.

But that's just my 2 cents and since I've already been in the process of a 980Ti, with an ROG Swift, and a Titan X shroud for the 980Ti... it would be a bit pointless letting all that go for this one. As in my eyes it just doesn't appeal to me, then of course, it's a bit more pricey, not denying that. But guessing that's the way of life at times, that you just gotta have to suck it up

I wonder though, if the prices go down soon... if you can go back to the store and ask for the price difference in return? Quote

AIOs on a GPU should be mandatory. Don't fight it man, it's inevitable.

Back when the Corsair H50 came along every one was saying air coolers were better, how real water cooling was better... The fact is that they are now pretty much an institution on CPUs.

And the best bit? a GPU core is far smaller and cooler than a CPU core, so temps on an AIO, even a crap one, are very low. My Titan Black with a H55 on it does not break 40 degrees. That's epic ! and the best part? I'm running a low RPM 120mm fan on it that doesn't make a sound. I mean nothing, let alone that horrible wasp like whirring sound GPU fans make or even worse the whoosh of a blower cooler that sounds like a sodding hoover.

The 980ti is a good card with a totally pants price. Sorry man, but northwards of £500 is absolutely disgusting and I would have held firm. People said AMD took the pee charging £430 for the 7970, yet Nvidia can charge a grand for their top end and £600 (because let's face it it's AMD Fury that's dropped the price of the ti) and every one thinks that's OK.

It's not ! stop being muggy and stupid !!!! wallets closed, voting is on.

As I said, £600 max for me. That's for two of these next gen cards. That's twice the cost of a reasonable gaming console so I don't think that's unfair in any way.

AMD Fury X may not be a Titan X killer. That's good - no company can survive on something that sells in tiny numbers. It's a 980 and 970 killer though. Like, totally. Give it a few weeks and it will cost what the 980 and 970 does. Then AMD will have "that" product that every company craves. A big selling mid range card (you know? the one that people actually buy).Quote

I'll keep waiting. Here's hoping the Fury (non X) lowers the price of everything. Which seeing as how Nvidia panicked and released the Ti before benches of the Fury were leaked seems highly likely.

They don't want to do a Titan Z again and leave retailers with a incredibly badly priced POS.Quote
