Ongoing Discussion Time to buy Nvidia stock!!

Recommended Posts

Agree, the stock prices will return back to those levels at some point.


AMD is another good investment as Zen 2 (Ryzen 3000 series) is going to debut at CES on the 12th of Jan.

With the recent leaks AMD is going to sell alot of CPU's in 2018 guaranteed!

I just caved and bought a 2080 off Amazon... couldn't deal with my 970 anymore. 🤣

They're definitely extremely expensive cards but besides that the stock itself is ripe for investment right now as it definitely will rebound above $200 per stock.

The 970 is still a great card, mate. Are you really sure it needed replacement. I had a GTX970 SSC that gives great response. Of course, for me, anything 30 FPS or higher is okay

In this case yes, it sure is a great card but it was already showing its age and I was running into low memory issues with the card itself, faulty hardware. The jump from the 970SC I had to the 2080 was absolutely huge in terms of performance! From 35-50FPS on average to a smooth 120-140FPS on maximum settings now.

I plan on giving my 970 to my nephew who's just getting around to building PCs himself. Good first card for him to use! :)

      I checked just to see how the 2700X fared against the i9-9900K
      This will not dissuade Intel fans. The i9-9900K is faster, by an overall 16%. Of course Intel does single-core better.
      Cost for the 2700X - $280
      Cost for the i9-9900K - $500

      Whilst the 6 core, 12 thread 8700K beats the 2700X in single and quad core performance by about 10%, the 2700X wins on multi-core workloads. PC gaming and desktop performance is generally governed by four or less cores but the 2700X offers unbeatable value for money for workstation users.
      Although the 9900K has around a 16% effective speed advantage over the 2700X, the Ryzen 2700X offers better value for money for most users.

      These people did a blind test to try to find out:
      Pretty interesting how it turned out.

      I recently purchased a GTX1070ti and then they come out with the RTX2070. Do I feel gipped?
      price of the RTX2070 compared to the GTX1070ti: lowest seen prices: $550 vs $360
      Nope, not at all. Sure, the 2070 has GDDR6 mem over the GDDR5 the 1070ti has, but the hardware points I worry about have negligible differences. Granted, while the RTX does not depend on CUDA cores so much (the nature of Ray Tracing), I'm not one for the new bells and whistles if I do not have a practical need for them.
      The above link is just one comparison and I just focused on the technical specs and not actual performance. This second link is a start for that. The benchmarks show a 78% increase in multi-rendering over the 1070ti.
      The RTX2060 may be someone else's entre to the RTX world, but I have avoided the 60-series nvidia cards as consumer level performance GPUs. Nothing surprising in this graphic:
