This is an awesome deal for anyone looking for a new high end graphics card

Currys price = £619.99
16% TCB = £99.20

Discounted £520.79

In comparison the GTX 980Ti sells at this price on average.
The new GTX 1080 is at least 20-30% faster than the GTX 980ti and can manage 4k gaming between 30-60fps.

Seriously, DONT MISS OUT

I'm seeing 10.6% at TCB for Currys (http://www.topcashback.co.uk/currys/) which would make the cashback around £65, not £99. Am I missing something?

Ive heard the founders edition throttles, so I think I would prefer the non-reference cards

Dread to think what the Ti card is going to cost (£850-£1000?)

10.6% here as well
remember cashback is never guaranteed
(although I once go it off Currys even when I returned the item!)

The gtx 980ti was released roughly at the same price. Dont think it will come out too soon though.

agreed, so many reviewers have found the same.. I will be waiting to see how much the 1070 are retailing for with decent cooling.

A shame they don't have the ASUS Strix, which is supposedly the better card right now.

I'm tempted to try the tcb with the htc vive but I don't trust tcb
I've never had any of my claims approved and tcb is completely unhelpful
Edit : moot point anyway it's only on graphics cards

Yep, nothing new with these blower coolers.

10% quidco too for those who prefer it over tcb.
waiting for the 1070 myself, would make a good upgrade from my current 960.

If the cashback doesn't come through, this makes it just a bad deal.

Would consider if I even played PC games anymore. pro tip, never start an MMO, you'll feel jaded for months

Or you could get a non-throttling EVGA GTX 1080 SC with the ACX 3.0 cooler for £580 from Ebuyer.
Even if you get the TCB, the 3rd party coolers are well worth the extra money.
They have an estimated delivery date of 30th of June, but I think this is just because they don't know the exact date they will arrive. I reckon it will be long before that.

I just ordered one .

The EVGA superclock uses the same nvidia refrence card with a different cooler. I have preordered this and expect it to be delivered 7th of June, it appears to be the first non refrence card out. However the non refrence pcbs should be even better.

I've ordered this one; overclockers.co.uk/asu…tml
Bit pricier than the EVA Superclock, but you get what you pay for.
ETA of 3rd June according to Overclockers. Not sure if this is accurate or not though.

Can't decide whether I should keep my Founders Edition preorder or switch to the ASUS card.

Ok. Any suggestions which card to get? The ASUS looks good to me

If you can get the asus just as fast its a no brainer.

I can get the ASUS for 99p more than my FE preorder :P

I would wait til we have more custom choices and reviews.

Yeah hopefully. At the moment I've only seen people preordering the EVGA FTW and ASUS Strix

+1 Great card if you're watercooling.

The ASUS has a slightly higher clock speed at base and OC.
It has 2 HDMI ports which is good if you want to use it for VR.

The EVA has 3 display ports compared to the ASUS with 2, but only has one HDMI.
It uses less power at 180W and it's £40 cheaper than the ASUS.

Apart from the specs, there's no review of the cards yet, so we shall have to wait until people get hold of them.

Also GTX 1070 NDA expires tomorrow so best thing to do is wait.

"All cashback rates displayed already include an additional 5% bonus".

So it appears that it's 10.6%/11% in total. Still not bad but not enough to warrant a hasty purchase for me. Will wait to see what the GTX 1070 brings and what else appears at Computex next week.

Don't buy FE unless you plan on putting your own cooler on it.


Even then just buy the MSI aero for £535 and the 3yr warranty includes cooler removal.

Seriously, DONT MISS OUT



At over half a grand for a graphics card : I think I'll be happy to miss out.

Given the modestly high return rate of graphics cards I wouldnt buy it from currys unless it was practically free. Everything Ive ever had to return has sat a minimum of two weeks in the store before they even shipped it for "repair".

...Anyone want to buy a 980Ti??

Looks pretty cool, can't believe the price of graphic cards nowadays lol

Sadly not very good cards. Problems are the following;
Founders versions are simply reference cards but the reference ones are prone to throttling.
In spite of the throttling they and worse cooling performance they'll have compared to other cards they are also going to charge more for these versions simply because they released them before the custom cards.
They're also not good overclockers for the most part due to the throttling and this means older cards like the 980ti can catch up relatively easily.

Overall you're paying for marginal difference, to get throttled and for little overclocking room. In the end even if you wanted a 1080 you're better off waiting for the custom ref cards but it might be better to simply wait for better cards really.

Am I missing something? From what I've been reading about this card its supposed to be cheaper than the 980ti but offer better performance. All the articles I read on this card kept emphasising that. But this is more expensive [before cashback] than the 980. Is it because these are the first batch available and so demand a higher price or is it just a case of us in the UK getting screwed again?
