Found 18th Jan
Can order this, stock is due soon according to Novatech, with GPU prices if you're desperate this is probably a good pick up, and you can always take the shroud off and watercool it if you want.

2?! Is one of them for me?
When will NVIDIA pull their finger out and scrap the blower design! SLI airflow isn't much of an issue any more for home users and for the sake of two quid worth of copper and an extra fan this would be so much more appealing!
Good price and excellent retailer though thanks OP, nearly bought!!
Don't forget quidco! Just got £18.72 tracked

but nothing is stopping you buying the fan design? blower style has it usage like SLI or micro case, weird thing to complain when there is plenty of fan gpu

But the OEM partners charge a fortune for the changes, if NVIDIA raised the bar I wouldn't need to pay an extra £200 for the same card.
I hate miners, they've kept the prices so artificially high for so long!

​what do you use them for?
I'm waiting for mining to become less profitable before I consider buying a GPU. If I see this for £500 in 2018 I might bite though.

Good luck with that.
For the outlay of components and cost of running is mining really worth it?

If it wasn't we wouldn't be in this situation GPU wise

I don't really know , I was generally thinking for most people they do it for fun and they probably break even.
Comparing to founders edition this one is VERY VERY loud. I was surprised of how FE was quiet even at full speed. But this one is typical loud as hell blower. Doesn’t bother me much as it’s already under water but be warned.

But also "when" the new NVIDIA cards are released in April miners will ditch and switch flooding the market with used 1080's and RX580's.

Most people who do it in UK are in places where they are not paying the electricity bills e.g. parents, hall of residences, all inclusive rent etc Basically they are taking someone else's electricity and converting it into virtual currency of their own. I.e. Stealing and destroying the environment at the same time for selfish gain.

You know that's not quite the case right? long as cards are profitable, good quantity of miners will just start a new rig with new cards. look at all the slower cards people are still mining with - you don't see the market flooded with 1080s and 1070s and 1060s now that there's a 1080ti.

way to judge. I have solar - even after mining I'll be putting more back into the grid than I use, and I can multiply the profits on what I use by mining. True not everyone's on the same boat, but I'm actually quite proud of my setup from a returns + being green perspective.
£730 already...

Do you really think it's like that? The bills would just go up by 500%, 1000% if they do that, any contract will have clauses for that. And no, it's not most people who don't pay energy, I don't know any for example.

1060, 1070 and 1080 are still profitable because the performance per watt is still good. Very few people are mining on 960, 970, 980 and 980Ti because the power requirements make them much less attractive than 10** series. When the 20** series are released (especially given the massive computer performance increase of Volta shown by the Titan V) miners are going to get ~double Performance per Watt from Volta cards compared to 10** series.

If compute performance and coin production increases that much we may see BTC "reward era 4" by the end of 2018, halving the BTC payout for each block created. This would then make 10** cards much less profitable for all currencies as most people cash out smaller currencies into BTC then $.

On top of that IF China and/or Korea ban/regulate/tax Cryptocurrency the rest of the world will follow causing its value to crash. Mere speculation of that has devalued BTC by almost half.

Around 5 months ROI - quicker if you don't payout to normal currencies (i.e. keep it as cryptocurrency and hope the value goes up).

I doubt it, the one's living off their parents / or the students wouldn't/shouldn't be able to afford loads of GPU's.

I'm guessing you've read the Guardian article about the environment. That's basically only Bitcoin (Cash) / Litecoin / Dash Mining (not other cryptocurrencies) because the other GPU mineable (ASIC Resistant) cryptocurrencies use little energy (comparatively) as the difficulty isn't incredibly high.
Showing as £730 now :-(
still on back order, i've cancelled mine. appretantely due to the huge number of orders they woud not honour the price.
