whats with all these price drops ? do amazon know something about vega?
About time. Overpriced as hell. Nvidia probably suspected something coming along too so shifting their prices
This exact card has been on my wish list, I might just wait for Black Friday though.
With votla due Dec/Jan, I am tempted to keep my gtx 980 till then.

The problem is there will always be something to wait for, best to get something whenever there's a good deal.

Odd isn't it. Amazon UK seem to be selling most models of the 1080Ti about £100+ cheaper than elsewhere and also £100+ cheaper than their European sites (.it, .fr etc).
Voted hot, though I'd still opt for the EVGA Black @ £608, or the EVGA SC2 @ £641 (if RGB is important to you) purely because their warranty is the peak of the industry.

I don't trust MSI or ASUS warranty wise when compared to EVGA.
Great price, got one at launch for £720. Tip for anyone getting any of these factory overclocked 1080 Ti's: the power (amps) required for these is pretty crazy. Even though I have an 850w Corsair PSU, I was getting complete system shutdowns when running certain games. Very infrequent but after a few weeks I found a game that caused the issue repeatably at the same spot so was able to troubleshoot. Turned out because I was using a single PCI-E power cable with a splitter, I was triggering the 40A protection limit on my PSU when it's in multi-rail mode.

Switching to single rail mode may well have fixed it but preferring the protection of multi-rail, I just used 2 separate PCI-E power cables and that cured it right away. I also found this change stabilised the overclock so the card will happily sit above 2GHz now even when you're caning it 100% at 4k with everything on Ultra.

As you will likely just have dealt with these - what combination of power connectors does this card take? It's been a while since I upgraded and want to compare to my PSU - are they still using a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin sockets for power? Likely two connections for a top end card like this.

I have one running on a EVGA G2 650w with no issue. I am using 2 separate cables from the psu though.

Two 8pins. Or at least it is on the one I got from amazon.es.


Great card for the money. I'm actually hoping AMD manages to challenge it with Vega so we see real competition at the high end after all these years.

UK bought one is the same as lomax's - 2x 8-pin connectors.

Look up the exact specs of your power supply and make sure the 12v is capable of 40A+. Won't be an issue with a decent single-rail PSU but I guess some lower-end or older multi-rail only PSUs might fall short.
Here we go, this explains the cabling better than I do:

Only reason I went for the EVGA is because MSI have dropped one of the display ports from the card, I run triples at 144hz and need the 3 ports.

i thought using one PCIE cable that splits into two can power a graphics card just fine, but it says "dont do this" in the image above. can anyone confirm?
Which one is better, this or:

amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

for £666.66?

Considering buying a 1080ti but seriously confused by all the aftermarket models.

Will probably get better warranty with EVGA over MSI.

Yes I heard EVGA's warranty is top of the game. How about the specs, worth the extra £20 for the cooling/fan?

Thanks in advance

In a lot of situations, you won't notice a problem using a splitter. I used one for over a year with a 980 Ti and it never had any power issues. The 1080 Ti though does require a significant amount more juice when under full load, if you combine that with a multi-rail PSU which can't handle ~40A per rail, you'll get OCP triggered shut downs. These can be avoided by switching to single-rail mode, if your PSU allows or spreading the load a bit by using separate cables.

I should point out that when I was experiencing shutdowns due to this problem, it was using an overlocked 5820k and this here MSI 1080 Ti at 2010MHz running games at 4k and even then, I only saw the problem a handful of times.

Makes sense, the beefier the graphics card and/or rig, the more strain on the PSU. Since getting a EVGA 850 G2 PSU, I've not had any issues with anything. Way more expensive and excessive for my puny rig but this PSU screams quality The GTX10XX series are way too expensive for my tastes despite me being a heavy PC gamer, but heat added nonetheless
It's showing as £805 on Amazon.its also a great GPU
