Not sure if /g/ had a thread on this yet? Holy fuck though, really exciting times are ahead. Glad that I cancelled the 980 TI that I had ordered the other day. Anyone know when these will start to come out? Maybe Q2 2016? Do you guys think Nvidia will roll out big Pascal first?

dollar per gigabyte between HBM and GDDR are the same. Probably higher for HBM due to the limited initial production output. I am unsure how people can think that nVidia will try to sell such an incredibly expensive card to private users.

It's for server farms at best.

Furthermore I don't see how FinFets will shake the GPU industry. The Sandy Bridge -> Ivy Bridge jump to finfets was at best the regular 5% performance boost. Also smaller processes don't necessarely mean an increased transistor count as the heat drasticly increases when you pack the electrical components closer together.

If you compare Sandy Bridge side-by-side with Haswell you'll find that Haswell always has the upper hand performance wise over Sandy bridge even though its transistor count is significantly smaller. So higher transistor count != higher performance

OP, sorry for the retarded green text. I currently game at just 1080p and I need some advice here.

1. Should I just get a 980 or the AMD equivalent now till Pascal is out.

2. Wait till pascal comes out and also get a new monitor.

3. Get a 980Ti and new 1440p monitor now.

One final thing, couldn't they also offer a consumer version of Pascal with 8 or 16 GB?

The HBM2 standard supports up to 8GB per module (and Pascal like AMD Fury is expected to do 4 HBM modules), but that doesn't mean that Nvidia will be selling 32GB cards next summer or even that 8GB HBM modules will even exist in commercial quantities.

Also, believing that TSMC will ever deliver on a new fabrication node is like believing in Santa Claus at this point.
