I don't know you, changed your mind. But we don't know the price yet anyway only for the Founders Edition prices have been announced which always command a premium. I'm still sticking with my initial estimate. TBH I think many gamers will be disappointed with the performance uplift over Pascal cards and won't update their cards and wait for the 7nm refresh next year. I certainly won't be updating.

Harryisme

Um....the GTX 2070 looks like it will retail for around £550, and will likely give you around the same performance as the 1080, you paying £65+ less and getting a £100 PSU with this. So not sure if you are joking or not, because the new cards not being at a good price is the one thing most posts I've seen about the new cards seem to agree on.

rogersmore

Such a good price!? Go look on the Nvidia website: Founders edition 2070 is listed at £569. So I don't know how you can say that's cheaper. Scan has AIB 2080 cards listed at over 1K. So you know an after market 2070 is going to be easily over £600. Also, there was no mention of raw performance of FPS Vs the current gen so, ray-tracing aside, we're still to see how much more powerful they actually are.

lomax

Cheaper? Have you seen them for sale anywhere? I've only seen 2080's and 2080ti's seeing as $699 and $999 have translated to over £700 and £1000 it seems unlikely the 2070 will be less than £500 whenever they become available.

lumpaywk

And with the new cards out at such a good price this is now the worst deal ever! do not waste your money om a 1080 when the 2070 is cheaper still and way more powerful.

I won't be ordering until I've seen real world performance and not a tech demo of BF5 which was quite disappointing. Definitely haven't seen anything to warrant £1100 yet. If it's double performance I'll buy one.

Previous gen cards have always been sold off cheaper to clear stock. The 1080 was released in May / June 2016 and if you check the search engine on this site, 980Ti's were clearanced for about £350 between June and October of that year

That's a really unfair comparison, this is for a new card not a secound hand one that has most likely been running 24hours a day at max load for god knows how long.

Scottc123

Voted cold simply because it is possible to get a used 1080 Ti for ~£450 if you put in an offer to a miner on eBay, as I and others have done. Miners are panic selling, while I expect the aftermarket GTX 1170s to be about £550 new (and likely similar performance to a 1080Ti based on the transitions 7XX to 9XX to 10XX).

Inside source says 1180 only be 30% stronger than 1180 meaning its pointless to go for new gpu which will cost double when you can go 1080 ti as its about 25% over 1080

daanuk

It's more that the pricing and seeming desperation to sell, does tally with those supposed leaked reports about Nvidia overstock issues and then wanting to sort it before dropping 11xx. It just feels like a time where buying a 1080 is fraught with risk. I'm in the market for one, but I've lasted this long now that I'll only be annoyed if the 11s are absolute dynamite or the 1080 price drops off a cliff.

dheydl

When Bestbuy was around in the UK the prices were at Currys levels or higher so I doubt we would have seen those prices regardless.

slackbladder193

Its just the Gaming version, they also have the Gamin X version for alot more https://www.scan.co.uk/products/msi-geforce-gtx-1080-gaming-x-rgb-8gb-gddr5x-vr-ready-graphics-card-2560-core-1683-mhz-gpu-1822-mhz- The only difference is a slight clock boost and can push a bit further with its built in OC mode. There is also a Gaming X + but I don't think that is available anymore.

daanuk

I know it's not an apples for apples comparison, but Best Buy in America were doing weekend specials, selling 1080s below $400 a couple of days ago. It may never manifest here (doesn't help we don't have Best Buy obviously) but it may at least be indicative of where the prices with the 1080s are going sooner rather than later with the major retailers.

No they dont. The 2 140mm fans were mounted on the case. not the CPU cooler. Its still semi passive

shkapars

They only use active cooling so they can compare it with rest of cases. The problem is with cold air intake in all these tempered glass cases, especially the ones that only have small gaps on top or bottom at the fron panel. Have done countless builds and 2 still in use at home, they are pleased to look at but thermal performance is way off, especially at longer gaming sessions or heavy workloads. Unless you have some performance fans at front running at 12v and same for exhaust to maintain acceptable air movement inside the case, but still not gona be enough. Once you take off that glass panel only then everything runs as is should and thermals are in acceptable range.

AngryCoffeeTable

I did actually If you read my post correctly. I linked it and I mentioned that they were running the system in a semi passive configuration which is why i said it skews the tests because no average consumer will ever run their systems with a passive heat sink on the CPU the same way that techspot have it. I dont know why techspot have choose to run their tests that way. but it doesnt reflect how probably 99% of people will be using it. This stormforce build comes with an ACTIVE cooling setup. It has an AMD Wraith cooler and because of this, it already performs better then the passive Megelahems cooler. Do you not understand? For most people they will be using an AIO or a heatsink+fan setup. Hardly anyone will build their system to be a semi-passive PC like how Techspot build theirs for testing. Its Like people that say that the MMR vaccine causes Autism. There is no proof that it causes Autism for 99% of people but there are some people like to believe that it does even if there isnt any solid evidence to support their claims. On one hand you have 1 website with questionable sources and no solid information while on the other hand you have 30 or 40 websites that are backed up by scientific research to say that it doesnt cause Autism. That 1 website doesnt represent the other 30 and its the same case here. The CPU is running hot because they have built the test machine into a semi passive state. Even if Bit-tech only tests for 15mins. The parts that they use still represent probably 90% of the people out who run their PC in the same configuration or use the same parts etc etc. Bit-tech also use the Gelid Rev. 3 Tranquillo CPU cooler and that has a 120mm fan on it Thus cooling is better.

shkapars

Bit-tech only run their thermal test for 15min, normally temperature raises after longer session while gaming or doing any other heavy workloads. you didn't read all techspot review as seems like you have missed the important bit . To ensure accurate thermal results, we installed the same hardware in each case in virtually the same way. Components included the Asrock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional, Phenom II X6 1100T, Prolimatech Megahalems in passive mode (i.e. no fan actively dispelling heat), Inno3D GeForce GTX 580 OC, as many Western Digital Scorpio Blue 500GB hard drives as we can install, and OCZ's ZX 1000w power supply. As we suspected, the In Win 805 doesn't perform that well out of the box, allowing our CPU to reach 94 degrees and the GPU 86 degrees. These temperatures match the Cooler Master Storm Scout 2, which also only comes with a single 120mm exhaust fan, though the Scout 2 is heavily ventilated. The In Win 805 simply looks too good to leave it at that, so we installed a pair of front mounted 140mm intake fans. These results can't really be compared with the other cases as they were all tested in their stock configuration. That said, it does give a good idea of how much better the 805 will perform with what we can only imagine will be a typical setup for most users. The intake fans moved much more cool air through the 805 and as a result the CPU temperature dropped by 22 degrees, while the GPU ran 8 degrees cooler. Keep in mind that the CPU heatsink is passively cooled which is why the extra airflow really helped improve performance. After 2x140mm fan cpu still over 72c and gpu near 80c, let it run like that for more then hour, and there will be few more c on top.

AngryCoffeeTable

Which reviews did you read?? Here the ones i read though only two of them included thermal tests. Guru3D gave it their stamp of recommendation -- No thermal tests Bit-tech gave it their Exceptional Award -- They even include Thermal tests which can be found here TweakTown gave it their Editors Choice Award -- It scored 96/100 -- No Thermal Tests Techspot gave it 85/100 -- Includes Thermal tests -- It puts it around the same performance of a Coolermaster HAF X which is designed from the ground up for air cooling -- What skews the test in a big way is they were a Prolimatech Megahalems cooler without any fans so it was running in passive mode and it still wasnt far off the CoolerMaster HAF X when two 140mm fans were installed on the case -- the AMD 580 card also runs very very hot. But if you read the conclusion it says: "Although it's incredibly difficult to photograph, the In Win 805 is a spectacularly good looking computer case -- certainly one of the best looking sub-$200 models we've reviewed. With two tempered glass side panels, this model was clearly designed for those who want to show off their hardware and their cable routing skills. The 805 might not be the best computer case when it comes to thermal performance, but with a 240/280mm radiator mounted in the front we were able to run our Intel Core i7-6700K processor at 4.8GHz while keeping temperatures in check. Users could also look at mounting a 120mm radiator in the back for additional GPU/CPU cooling as well. Considering its cooling capabilities, the 805 also isn't the best choice for more than two GPUs, though you can technically install four dual-slot cards. The idea of being limited to dual-GPUs shouldn't scare most potential buyers and we figure most folks eyeing three or four GPUs will look at spending more than $200 their computer case. The 805 will be more than sufficient for anyone looking to install a current-generation Intel or AMD processor alongside a single high-end graphics card such as the GeForce GTX 980 Ti." ------------------------------------- I believe cooling is hampered by its smaller form factor. Not because its a tempered glass case. The Bit-Tech review is a lot closer to how the average user would build their system compared to the Techspot review. and it scored not far off a Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 5 in CPU temps and middle of the pack in GPU temps.... 53'c for a 980Ti isnt hot nor boiling.

Yes, yearly revenue for NVIDIA have always been black, but 'keeping it in the black' is just a term for 'making money'.

Picard123

Nvidia have always been in the black. They even ramped up production of the 10XX series last year (albeit overestimating mining demand for Q1 and Q2 2018) which is what partly resulted in the 300K OEM stock being returned.

Nate1492

Well they are not going to want to make an imminent release clear, unless AMD had competitive GPUs that force their hand. Why should they make it clear the new cards are imminent - it would reduce sales of their current cards and they have stock they want to get rid of... I have no evidence for this, but I just suggested waiting because this is only a relatively good price, nothing amazing. We are all still overpaying even at this price due to the markup from miners etc driving up GPU prices.

As someone who bought a Pascal card at launch, no I'm not. They were vastly more expensive than the launch prices of the 9 series cards.

Nate1492

This isn't similar to any of those technologies. This is like Anti Aliasing or Super Sampling. 3d, VR, HDR, and 4k are much more gimmicky and requires investments, where Ray Tracing can just be done with almost no overhead. If you read my articles, you'd see that Ray Tracing *greatly simplifies* lightning and shadows from a developer perspective. You don't have to 'adopt' anything here, it will be done, en masse, because it's cheaper, better, faster. Anyway, pascal cost at launch, great perfect example. Thanks for proving my point.

So, do you see it? The price dip to $449.99 right *after* the launch? Are you going to admit that you were wrong about the prices at launch? Or is it pointless to provide this in depth details with sources?

Sounds a lot better than ASUS. Used to be a loyal buyer of their parts but they've gone down the pan though I suspect all companies are like this now except maybe EVGA.

Uncommon.Sense

I'm not sure from a consumer point of view, but I use them a lot for Nvidia Quadro products, and on the rare occasion that I have required an RMA service from them they went just fine. I guess a lot of it is down to personal expectations, people seem to forget that 99% of all these cards are made in Taiwan/China and unless they OEM happens to have a local re-work agent, or RMA centre, then things can take a while to get sorted if they have to travel back to the country of origin. PNY have an EU office in France, so that is pretty local from a shipping time scales point of view, but I'm more than happy if a card is turned around in 14 days, and up to 28 days if it needs to go further afield.

more power requires more electricity and more electricity will generate more heat if it is not dissipated quickly enough... lots of cases of hot gpus desoldering their balls! also when we say high end, they are not real high end usage... real high end use goes in rendering farms for designs/simulations and what not where 100s if not thousands of these cards (gpu cores) used ... if you cant manage to run them efficiently and cool enough, its speed benefit will diminish due to cost for electric and cooling costs... these things matter when you scale up! Memory chips started stacking up, so may the gpus/cpus of future... this is because of limitation of the tech and yield rates on those levels...if you cant shrink the card/dies more, you can only go left right or up! CPU is currently going X/Y and memory chips Z axis (due to space limitations for use models!

NOTE: Amazon have done something odd here. When I posted there was only 1 card left but "more on the way", but now my link goes to the basic version of the card, and the Super Jets… Read more

Back up to £544 and OOS today!

I went for the Amazon deal in the end, since I already picked up a 1070ti from gigabyte but felt the extra £35 was worth it for an EVGA card, plus didn’t have to wait for a refund for an exchange. That’s a real good price for a 1080, like you said though I’d just be worried that it’s been used/no amazon customer service if something does go wrong.

EVGA SC is down to £470 on Amazon today. But I ended buying an EVGA 1080 FTW off ebay with the 15% off US code. No Amazon returns, but it was hard to resist at £391 all in. Supposedly brand new, hope it's not another dodgy ebay deal.

Thanks for the feedback. On reflection I've decided to just replace my PSU for now (as I'd probably need to do it anyway to fit a 1080) and will wait to see what appears in the next few weeks. If there's no sign of the 1180, and the EVGA version drops a bit from the £495 that Amazon are currently asking, I might get that.

I had the Windforce version and had to return it. Cooling wasn't great and it was noisy. Paid a bit more for an EVGA 1080 SC instead and I'm so glad I did. Much better performance.

The latest ultrawide monitors will. But they're top money too.

No because a year ago it was 1 year old tech. ;)

Yeah but think you will have to upgrade to an 1180 which will no doubt cost quite a bit more. The EVGA upgrade program is good though. And their warranty is the best there is.

get a 10 series card or 2 and forget about upgrading for the next 2 series. There isn't anything in the gaming worls that is demanding more performance, at least not enough to cause a global outrage.

That’s assuming similar gains to the 10 series compared to the 9 series. How can you be so sure the new cards will yield such high performance gains?
