Precisely, they will be launched at the same price as the 2016 last year if not slighly higher in the internet shops because of the buzz, meaning around 5-8k€ in France, which is imo way too expensive for a TV ^^
CPU: AMD Ryzen (launch window is Feburary or March)
GPU: AMD Vega (launch window is March to June)
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti (thought to be launching whenever AMD releases Vega)
again, the GTX 1080 Ti is the expected followup to the GTX 1080, coming in at a lower price than the top-end Titan X which is around 1.2k€ in EU so the 1080 ti will sit around 1k. You can get a 1080 around 530€ atm which is twice less so no comparison possible with 1080 ti, it is most likely more powerful but
About AMD, rumors talk May as a release date which is like in half a year ^^
Here's the thing, I get your point, in computer industry (which i know quite well as a 10y programmer), it is indeed always a benefit to wait for the end of time cause for sure you'll get the best hardware possible.
But what is your advice? Should I sit in on the couch watching at the wall for another 6 months and spend 4k€ more on my new setup?
