    Yup, can we all just drop Max-Q talk from this thread, WTH does it have to do with Volta anyway :)

    Though I bet the Volta XX80 that reaches laptops will at least be equal to GP102.

    I think Volta will have Min V aka Min Voltage and configurable quantity of shaders that is left to OEM to configure. A single card w/ multiple configurations that cost a fortune, so choose your Volta GPU carefully.

    We're probably 6 to 8 months from having any actual news on mobile Volta.

    This thread has many more, much darker turns to take.

    It was bound to happen, what with Volta being a year off... Nvidia needs something to throw out there.

    The RX Vega 56 runs like a stock 1080 when tuned, the RX64 above that, so Nvidia is going to have a tough time slotting a 1070ti. If the 1070ti is just under a 1080 then the AMD RX Vega GPU's are still faster, and if the 1070ti is a "cheap 1080" I would have to assume there will be a 1080+ too?

    IDK could be made up completely, it makes no sense to fracture the market with 2 1070's below the 1080, and neither does reducing the price for the 1070 - why when Nvidia are selling all they make would they need to reduce the price?

    In the year of our Lord, 2017, we're still linking to WCCFTech as a source.

    I try to find another source to quote, but sometimes they are first, and in those times it's possible they are correct - it's a judgment call :)

    This is definitely one of those things I would have passed on until 2nd confirmation, but it's already posted so responding with a range of reaction seemed helpful.

    You can and did just dismiss it out of hand due to the source, I choose to avoid that unless it's obviously faked. This one comes close to that :)

    We talk about Ngreedia... No Volta this year and they don't want loosing more sales to the Red camp:rolleyes: Once AMD get better in prices for HBM2 they will push out more Vega.
