    nope,, 970 is a lot faster (40-50% ) in most games , it is gtx 1060 3gb which is close(5-10 % faster ) to 970

    Really?i was under the impression that 1050ti is actually closer to gtx 960 in terms of performance,but maybe that's not the case....

    I was recently getting a used GTX 970 with about a year's worth of warranty left for around 12k-is it a good idea to purchase it or should i just go for the upcoming volta gpus once they become available?Is the 2050ti likely to be priced as much as their current 1050ti or is it gonna be more expensive?

    My bad, it is closer to 960 indeed. Don't pick a 970 now. It'll be hard to sell it off when its warranty is over next year.

    ^thanks,then i suppose investing in an used 970 wouldn't be such a good idea-waiting for volta seems like the only viable option right now.Hopefully the 2050/2050ti won't be quite as expensive as the 970 was during launch.

    I on the other hand think you should go with 970 for 12k. I mean its powerful enough to easily last 3 years. And waiting makes no sense.
    2050Ti is very far off- around September and price will be around 13-14k and performance similar to 970. So why wait?
    As for 2060, it will be around june/july and price will be above and 20k which is out of your price range anyway.
    And 970 is much more powerful than 1050ti. 970 is the best choice at 12k. Considering the mining craze and super inflated gpu prices, you'd have to be crazy not to get the 970 at that price as long as the card is in good condition.

    is cryptocurrency considered legal in india?If not,then why are people so hell bent on mining it?Of late i've seen some ads on sites like olx,quickr etc for used cryptocurrency mining gear-it seems the people who owned them are trying to get rid of them now-is it because cryptocurrency's value is decreasing day by day?

    There's no legal status for bitcoin in India. Govt wanted to regularize, but there are lots of huddles even to approach it as a digital money. People are hellbent on mining, coz it's easy ROI with minimal physical work. You just have to make a better mining setup and process of how to monetize - that's it. But the real advantage is its volatility. Nobody knows when it'll top or crash.

    Miners are still purchasing every new high-end graphics card they can get their hands on and as a result of that, all NVIDIA and AMD partners have a hard time filling up inventory and stock. On the other hand, Apple and Samsung are willing to pay more for the memory that will be used in their smartphones. Factories are using the same production lines for the memory that is used in graphics cards and in smartphones and this has created a shortage of memory for companies like MSI, Gigabyte, Asus, and EVGA to make graphics cards. From the looks of it, things are not going to improve in the next couple of months.

    “While NVIDIA was here they also let us know that the pricing in the market will continue to go up through Q3 of 2018 most likely before we start seeing any type of relief,” Hutch says. “So, unfortunately, the end to this is not right around the corner and we have not seen the worst of it yet.”

    According to the green team, the two main reasons causing the GPU prices to increase each and every month are the mining craze and the vRAM shortage.
    Bottom line is that things are not going to improve in the next couple of months, so this will be a tough period for PC gaming enthusiasts!

    has the mining market suffered any setbacks of late?I've been observing that lots of used nvidia gpus (esp. 1060s)have started to surface on local classified ads on sites like olx and quikr and it seems their owners are desperately trying to get rid of them.If this trend continues,hopefully gpu prices will be back to reasonable levels in the foreseeable future.

    As of now gpu prices are still very steep-even though most technology portals and popular tech channels on youtube are proclaiming that gpu prices should drop significantly anytime soon,i think there will be little to no effect of this phenomenon here in India.

    déjà vu - can't really count how many times I've seen posts like this and even I've posted the same.
