Pretty good deal if you are after an RTX 2080, I think this is the cheapest is has been since launch, and about the right price compared with the now discontinued GTX 1080 Ti.

In order to get this price, once you click through the link, tick the aplly coupon box and you;ll get a discount bringing the card cost down by €37.78 (see image below), the cards are due back in to stock on June 22nd.

This is the price if paying in GBP using the Amazon currency converter, and will be better if paying with a fee free card, as of the time posting the deal you would pay only £531.60 using one of the many fee free cards available.

Included in this deal is a free copy of the new Wolfenstein game. Here is the text from the receipt page.
"Congratulations, you will receive by e-mail a code to download your game WOLFENSTEIN YOUNGBLOOD!"

Those fans look pretty cheap.
Good deal, prices might drop a little for old stock as Super comes in to replace the existing Turing lineup at most likely the same or slightly higher price (Launch MSRP).

128 extra CUDA cores, and the memory actually running at the frequency it is already capable of out-of-the-box on pretty much every 2080 presently, price... well this is Nvidia so $799 or about £750 here. The real competitor will be the 2070S with 2560 Cuda cores, probably priced at $499 to see of that pesky AMD card they are launching.

Not following, sorry. The AMD 5700XT is coming at $449, so they need to be about $50 more at most, unless I'm confusing what you are getting at.

Does anyone actually need a 2080? RTX is so limited as to essentially be a gimmick and on the few games it actually works on it slices FPS in half.

Essentially what I'm saying is, Super will be more expensive than current turing. Perhaps 5% more, for probably sub 10% improvements in performance.

Navi pricing still remains a mystery, as AMD can easily drop it to be more competitive, and I feel they will. Crucially its competition, and we the consumers win in the end if it forces prices to drop. It doesn't matter which side offers the better value, but at this level of the market (mid range) its typically AMD. Navi certainly brings more interesting things to the table than Turing at the momnent, with RTX implementation still being mostly weak, and lower end Turing cards not really being powerful enough to take advantage of RTX to a point where it makes a significant visual difference.

DLSS on the other hand is incredibly underhelming and limited in its application. On the other hand, at least from what we've seen some of Fidelity FX features seems much more impactful, especially as it will work on older games without requiring implementation at a developer level.

As for price, all speculation for now. Back on topic, this is still a good deal.

Yea, I suppose that's why I hope intel will introduce some competition into the market with their Gpus. AMD are a lost cause because they have literally locked themselves into an architecture that has to stay backwards compatible with GCN. This is thanks to their commitments to console manufacturers needing their new systems to remain usable with old games. Just means they will never just radically change architecture like Nvidia can. The 5700xt is dissapointing, 7nm and still needs 8 pin plus 6pin and consumes 225w to barely compete with the more efficient 2070, no thanks.
I have to say, Navi pricing is only a mystery as to why they priced it so high, $449, and $389 seems a tad to high, $399 and $299 would have been my guesses in order to really force the hand of the jolly (read: mean) green giant. You are right however, they might drop it, but they still don't have card in this segment at this cost if this price becomes the new normal, unless Radeon VII drops to £549.
This one or the gainward tripple fan? Both have crappy warranty reputations.

Can get an 8 Euro code for starting a whishlist and adding a few items.

Perhaps to bait Nvidia. Radeon 7 will still remain more expensive purely because of the cost of the card, as its speculated the HBM2 alone is 40% of the cost. I suspect AMD will slowly phase it out though as Navi sales gain traction, as ultimately the 5700 XT is a better buy than the Radeon 7 unless you need it for compute tasks.

I expect Navi to come out (or soon after launch) drop to ~339 / 419 which would be a good place to be. Certainly better than what team green offers right now. That's essentially similar MSRP to Vega with noticeably more performance.

Well a node shrink can either give the same clocks at lower wattage, or more clock speed at the same wattage, they didn't really have a choice if they wanted to compete above the low-mid segment. Nearly 2GHz boost vs. 1500Mhz on Polaris or Vega, it's better than nothing at least people who spend <£500 have a choice now.
"I have to say, Navi pricing is only a mystery as to why they priced it so high"

Why not? Green Vaseline company is charging even more...its called a duopoly.
I have a 6 year old KFA2 650 Ti Boost in a machine which just won't die so if this is the same level of quality then it will be fine. Not the right time for me to upgrade but good price !

It's better than nothing but not exactly great. Hopefully the board partners will put out some decent models. Can't believe AMD still kept the blower design of the reference cards. No doubt the only card worth buying will be whatever Sapphire puts out, possibly a Nitro.

I understand that, but they did such a bang up job on Intel with the Ryzen 3xxx prices vs the equivalent Intel parts, they could have been slightly more aggressive with the Graphics division as well, but I guess it leaves the door open for a price drop, when they feel the time is right.

Would Amazon handle the RMA? Gainward have 3 Years warranty I think based in Germany and will not deal with the customer directly. KFA is 2 Years but seems to be Wales RMA.

I've recently RMA'd with Gigabyte in Milton Keynes which was a joy and 4 days turnaround, not quite up to EVGA though!

Are you sure Palit own KFA as they only have 2 Years warranty (I've seen someone suggest this is wrong based on both parent companies being called Galaxy something something but both different)

If the overclockers post is up to date.


The KFA Backplate seems to be a bad design.

And that should be good? I've seen a post of someone RMA'd to Gainward with Scan and was offered 50% value!!!

As I don't think I'm getting my Omen 2060 laptop from Microsoft (been pending 5 days and contacting support was told it will be March 3016... to which I had to get them to think about what they had said before they told me it would take 48 hours to get clarification).

I have the Gainward ordered for 605 Euros with no Wolfentein Game and now the KFA for 589 Euros with Wolfenstein.. Both dates 20-27th June. Neither are binned chips.

Need to choose one before dispatch!

Sorry I think I wasn’t very clear. What I meant is that in Japan, the price of graphic cards in their own currency haven’t changed that much as the JPY/USD has been constant.
For us in the UK we took a big hit in our currency in an very short time while our revenues remain roughly the same, so the cards appear quite expensive (no matter where you buy it as the gbp has become weaker against anything). It’s not just Brexit as you can observe the phenomenon else where in Europe but yeah it’s particularly bad here.
