GPU over hype?

So i've noticed a high portion of comments pertaining to people's use of graphics cards, that seem to go a lot like this "Should've waited for Pascal" or follow that format very closely. So i've been wondering which of you guys are sick and tired of the Pascal hype, I know its supposed to crush the titan x at half the price, but in what applications, I'd really like to see Pascal vs Vega (AMD has said that Polaris wouldn't be the super high end stuff). Now I know that a good portion of you guys are going to say that it would be an unfair competition, because vega has hbm2 and pascal has gddr5x. But what are your opinions? And How tired are you of seeing people commenting that "you should have waited for pascal" on builds

Memory really doesn't matter that much like people say. Sure it's higher speed, but if the GPU can't utilize that memory speed, then there isn't much of a point.

You should've seen everyone on this site when Maxwell first came out. If anyone didn't have a GTX 970 they were immediately told they wasted their money. When everything calms down its back to normal. The circle of life.

I'd really only rate the 970 a 87.5%
