GEFORCE GTX 1080 Ti FOUNDERS EDITION - £679 @ GeForce

Found 11th May
1080Ti back in stock - decent price. I know someone has just published a palit version and I'm not sure how it measures up to the FE.

However, I got one of these an hour ago. Can't take credit, someone posted but it was then removed. Thought I'd post back for those looking for a 1080Ti like i was.

Like I said can't take credit- was posted on here but vanished after a few minutes. Got one when I got back from work and as the post wasnt back up (and I had mine ) thought i'd repost.

Kudos to the orinigal poster, whoever you were!

But does your computer give you the ability to immerse yourself totally in Super Dooper Ultra HD and shoot really realistic looking people without leaving your sofa ?

Who would possibly want a normal social life , interacting with normal human beings (and who knows talking to them ) when you can shoot graphically perfect looking folks without leaving your sofa and without having to even speak to them .

Might be waiting a long time though. Rumours have been going a long time and Nvidia just stocked up on the current generation of cards. Plus it will most likely cost more than £680. I believe that they are expected to be GDDR6, which are expected to be around 20% more expensive than GDDR5. By the point that the new gen is relased, 1080Ti may be pretty much off the market too...

given the evga 1080 ti ftw 3 costs £900+ on amazon at the moment, thats not a bad price at all. heat. This is what the 1080ti should cost before those idiot crypto currency miners took all the cards, and destroyed the market for gamers. ive said it before, and ill say it again, crypto currency miners should all be burnt with the amount of energy they have wasted to a crisp!

It's closer to 30% at higher resolutions and flagship products (discounting the Titans) have rarely ever offered the best price/performance in PC gaming.
Nearly £700 for old tech with a crap cooler. Hold out for the 1180.

Nah. 9XX to 10XX jumped down two nm fabrication sizes and there was a double generational leap in performance. 11XX isn't doing that. Rumours and indeed current technology seem to point to the 1180 being like a 1080Ti but with faster GDDR6 RAM, that should have a big effect on gaming at 4K but with less impact at lower resolutions where VRAM speed does not bottleneck the GPU.

generating a virtual currency and hoovering up all the graphics cards from regular gamers and burning energy doing it is a waste. I can't wait for it to be regulated or to be made illegal.

So the 1080ti isnt for you if you cant or wont spend that sort of money, but it doesnt make it a bad price.
I don't think I shall buy this to replace my Radeon 6570 just yet until the price comes down a bit.

Surely by that logic gaming is an even greater waste of resources as there's no end product.

You'd probably need to make the Internet illegal to stop crypto being used and therefore profitable to mine. Probably not something you wanted to hear.

Gaming is like any activity, enjoyable. if you see that as a waste of resources, so be it, but its what those cards were originally intended for in the market. Cryptocurrency mining is not what those cards were originally intended for in the market, but just so happens they can also be used for this, like they can be used for other kinds of processing. The difference is scumbags buying up all the cards in a certain market for a use that they were not destined for, robbing the intended market of supply, and pushing up the prices of whats left. Other users of gpu's for other types of processing that are not gaming have never affected the market like scum bag crypto currency miners have, and the work those other users task their gpu's to do usually benefit learning, science etc.

If supply exceeds demand at a given price, sales would plummet.
Look at Maplin who has done exactly that and how did that work out for them?
Nvidia on the other hand still reported record sales and profits despite those "ridiculously expensive" prices you whinged about, proving they are not ridiculous, rather a reflection of their monopoly in the market and AMD's incompetence as a serious rival.

Another example that comes to mind is the Nvidia shield TV box, which was released at £120 but due to demand, is now, a good few years later, selling at £180, largely unchanged.
It can do so as it is one of, if not, the best Android TV boxes on the market, even after so many years.
People want what they perceive to be 'the best' stuff and are more than happy to pay a premium for it, it seems.
Nothing ridiculous there.

I'd consider your anything a bad price that will have a large % of the value wiped off it in a few months. The XX80Ti products are where the biggest losses in resale value are to be had in terms of % fall when the next new top-of-the-line GPU comes along.

So who's you're contact in Nvidia? I mean the one who's told you that the new gen is coming in the next few months? Based on the fact that they announced a whole new batch of stock in. See May 9th twitter.com/NVI…rce. Its within their interests at the moment to keep the 1080Ti as their top range card. AMD have nothing that can closely compare and with prices high, they know they can shift them especially at RRP. They may aswell get rid of all stock at these prices and they're not under pressure to release the next gen.

Past precendent doesn't always apply and considering the current unprecedented circumstances in the market, its silly to base what will happened with such certainty on what has happened. There are great number of things to consider and alot of them point to it being unlikley that 1080Ti will be greatly reduced in price when the next gen comes out or even that the next gen is coming in 'a few months'.

I'm not saying that youre wrong as what you say might happen. I'm saying for people who have been waiting for a 1080Ti and want it soon, this is a good dea (deal for market price not comapred to RRP). Those that wait risk losing out on a 1080Ti and facing high prices anyway for the next gen (expected to be at least 20% higher than current RRP). For those that can afford to hold out for upto a year then of course, this is silly.

It is "your". Don't need any contacts, just basic knowledge. 9-series was 28 nm, 10-series jumped all the way down to 16 nm fabrication. The latest professional Nvidia cards are on 12 nm, so we can expect that in the next consumer cards. I agree that they'll likely ramp up RRPs as they did in the last generational step. There does appear to be a market for overpriced technology, in the same way that smart phone companies have been doing the same.

As in you're a bit of a dullard?

Come on, its a forum and I typed on my phone - You don't need to try and insult my intelligence by picking up on an autocorrect grammatical error. Its a poor argument that relies on tactics like that. Doesn't make you right or me wrong even if I had no idea of the difference. You wanna have a real discussion then go ahead but don't be one of those chumps that pick on grammar!

Basic knowlegde of when the cards will be released? Not really? What you've said in no way contradicts or addresses what I said, not really anything to do with it. If you're ( ) suggesting that lower nm mean lower manufacturing costs then you have a small point but again, read through what I've said and you'll realise why it isnt relative.

-No knowledge of when the next gen will be released- rumours have been floating around for nearly a year.
-Doesnt look likely that its soon as they have just restocked - Why push down the price of all that stock when its still worth so much now by releasing soon?
- No pressure to release a new card anyway, as 1080Ti is still top of the market for gaming and AMD don't have a competitor that really matches it.
-I believe that in previous gens, the consumer card usually has been released a few months after the proffesional ones. This hasn't been the case this time. The first Volta was released last year. Again above may be some reason why.
-Possiblity that by the time the new gen is released, the 1080Ti may pretty much be gone, especially if they do come down to RRP levels and the new card isnt released soon (which adds to that given above for why not releasing soon is in Nvidia's interests). I believe this happened before with the last gen- read it somewhere but can't be sure. if this is the case, this could mean the small supply will keep the 1080Ti card prices high at RRP or above.
-The new gen is using memory that is expected to be at least 20% more expensive. So it would be surprising given that they can still shift the 1080Ti for the RRP that it wont be 20% above that RRP. This is the case even if they did release in a few months. So why lower the 1080Ti either or?
- By that time those who really wanted a Ti and wait either for them to go down greatly or the new gen, may have missed out on 1080Ti and be faced with a more expenisive nex gen card than the full priced 1080Ti (which they were waiting to go down based on the same assumptions as yourself).
-Therefore, the least risky based on current state of things, for those wanting a 1080Ti now or in the next few months would be to just get one at RRP rather than inflated price or waiting.

If you can wait then sure, wait, that is less risky for those lukcy people. But some people cant. I don't have a full rig. I wanted a 1080Ti but started building at the wrong time. For me, this was the least risky way to make sure I will have a reasonably priced rig (based on my own budget and state of the market) in the next few months. Your consideration of the price being bad is based of preconceptions and past experiences and ignores some of important factors, It also ignores many considerations for some buyers and the fact that each buyer is in his/her own situation so is basing the decision to buy on different things.

Could not put it better. Again just because X thinks the price is too high does not mean Nvidia or the miners can be blamed for the rest of the alphabet buying GPUs until out of stock at whatever price they are asked for.
I would say, if anything, the prices are too low in an environment where even a £10-£20 discount leads to a stock out within minutes for the "good" partner cards.
