Found 24th Aug 2017
Not the cheapest this has been but given the current prices of GPUs I jumped at this price. The extreme edition for less than the price of the normal edition and free shipping.

Not in Stock till 29th but a bargain imo since the prices seem to still be creeping up

Cold from me.

These have been £650 from some of the EU Amazon sites.
Been looking at this card for a while. Just not quite sure I can justify even the lower price!

Cold from me.These have been £650 from some of the EU Amazon sites.

Yea, I've been watching them a while now but couldn't be bothered with the faff of transferring cash to my revolut and hoping the cards not DOA.
I know it was cheaper in the week before prime day but I'm still happy to pay this for less worries although I appreciate people wanting it for less.
As I said a decent price with the way the cards pricing has been going lately as it was £760 a couple of days ago and still £780 @ OCUK.

Yeah, appreciated. I look at these deals with rose tinted spectacles now after landing my EVGA Black 1080ti for £608 in July.

You might want to mention you also get Destiny 2 as part of the deal, for someone interested in that title that'll put them closer to £655.

The thing to bear in mind with the 1080ti is that they all hit within 5% tolerance across pretty much everything, including the reference cards, so barring acoustics and some thermal differences there's really no need to pay the premiums over what was the case with the 1080GTX, pascal is at the limit.
What boost does the extreme version have over the normal 1080ti?

The best deal I can find on a 1080Ti right now is £644.26 (delivered to the UK) and this also includes Destiny 2, so £610 depending on how much you value the game etc. For that price you need to use Monero/Revolut or a fee free card and pay in EUR from your Amazon.fr cart.

If I were in the market for one I'd personally choose the lower priced card given the above performance delta but YMMV.

This is the one card that keeps appearing at the lower end. But I don't want to be spending so much money on a component that many have lamented for coil wine. Keep waiting for a good price on some of the other, such as MSI Gaming, but nothing budging atm. Vega hasn't helped!

That card is at the lower end for a reason. It doesnt have a backplate and I'm assuming its a reference PCB. Most reviews i've read aren't very favourable.

Indeed. However if some of the better cards would reach that price point I'd get one. £600 is my must buy, £650 I'll wait to see what non-reference Vega 64 prices are if can save >£100.

Good question - just 5-6% performance boost according to this review: techpowerup.com/rev…tml

Good luck with that as they are not gonna beat a 1080ti as a ti is 30% more powerful than a 1080 and the vega is the same power as a 1080. . No way your gonna get a 30% boost on non reference.
Personally holding out for a deal for one of the EVGA ones of the Asus, dropped to £666 before prime day and hoping to see similar deals by the end of the year
Graphics card alone for the cost of a gaming laptop with gtx 1050 which can play all games. ... gulp!

Obviously, which is why I'd want to save £100-£150 for it!

That way I can continue to make use of my Freesync ultrawide monitor, but I'm not holding my breadth for that price point. I think if I'm patient the TI might come down to my acceptable level, Vega 64 less likely. If not will either get the Vega 56 or keep my R9 290 till next gen.
And your investment will be worth less than half when Nvidia release Volta in a few weeks time.
Just got this card today.
Very cool and runs the core at 2012mhz by default.
Can't hear the fans at all. GPU at about 60c.

Sold the game code that came with it for £25.

Registered for 4 years warranty.

Pleased with the card overall.

Much heavier than I imagined.

NVidea have stated Volta is scheduled Q1 of 2018, that could be the end of March, also with Vega being as much of a let down as it was NVidea are in no hurry to release the next big thing as there is just no competition for their top tier cards, the smart money is on them pushing back their Volta release to milk the cash cow a little longer and this has already been hinted on by the fact that their silicon partner stated they arent producing anything new till the end of the year. I also seem to remember an interview with the CEO stating the technology just isnt quite there yet and it could be pushed back (although I cant find that interview now to quote it lol).

Theres more chance of seeing 10XX series refresh before the end of the year with a 1060ti or 1070ti to use the mid level cards as a nail in the AMD coffin by boosting performance against Vega in mid range sales.
1080ti for this price isn't a bad deal but obviously can be had for a lot cheaper. If your looking for a solid upgrade that will last for a good couple of years then i would suggest buying volta when it comes out next year. The 1080ti prices haven't moved all that much since release.
