Survey: What would you be worth to a GeForce GTX 1180 and where would the financial pain limit be?

Let's say Nvidia would launch a new (preliminary) top-of-the-line model in the foreseeable future (which is probably as certain as the Amen in the church) – what would this card be worth to you? Or rather, to what extent would you be willing to go along without the threat of violence?

Of course, we don't know the exact specs of this collated card with Turing Chip at the moment, but the speculated memory expansion of 16GB GDDR6 would be quite tasty. After all, no one can and does not want to buy the equivalent Quadro card with previously often double memory expansion.

Of course, with all the joy of possible new hardware, one should not hide the fact that the green faction could at some point also push another top model, which then the respective, first launched high-end model later to the upper middle class. the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti did with the GeForce GTX 1080 at the time. A little risk of suddenly no longer having the longest is therefore quite real.

But it's just as certain that Nvidia's CEO doesn't suddenly mutate into Mother Theresa, and that Nvidia suddenly becomes the Church of the Holy Three Pixels. This hope can be safely scratched off the cheek. But of course the question always arises where you would set the limit for yourself, if the card (a) were faster than a current GTX 1080 Ti, but (b) it would only have a similar performance record as the smaller GeForce GTX 1080 and if (c) it were really the first card. , with which you could also gamble in Ultra-HD.

These assumptions, of course, are all purely speculative and, as always, nothing is known. But it's the usual what-if situation that we all like to play with. And this is exactly where the (um) question comes, how expensive your heart leaf should be, after Susi has summarized everything once again:

So, now you have to decide!
