All GTX 1080 Ti Discounts, Offers and Sale - March 2019
Well...in the end i got a Palit 1080 Ti Super JetStream "Used - Like New" via Amazon Warehouse for £551.74 so it it is any good i am happy with that.
ready my comment again, i stated PROPERLY OPTIMISED. thats the big problem with both these 2 new techs, it requires developers to build and learn the tech. Its for nvidia to learn how to optimise. 2-3 generations for new tech is realistic. if you are happy with half the performance to enable those features then thats great, but most people will not opt for that.
DLSS is already making it's way into a lot of games. https://www.nvidia.com/en-gb/geforce/news/final-fantasy-xv-windows-edition-geforce-rtx-dlss-benchmark/ RTX is a strong work in progress. And when combined with DLSS, it's great. But suggesting this is '2 to 3 generations away' is completely untrue.
^ doubtful because by the time we get games that are properly optimised for DLSS and RTX, another 2-3 generations of cards will have been and gone and he can get a whole new card for cheaper.
RTX2080. https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_RTX_2080_Founders_Edition/33.html It's 8% faster and has room for a 9% OC still. And you get DLSS, which is the BIG deal of this generation, even if RTX gets good later, DLSS will be good way faster and will push the advantage much further ahead. You'll be kicking yourself for saving the 90 quid later.
More about the prices though, not the card details. You will always have the less quality cards at a lower price, that is a given. People have some notion that Geforce owes them cheap GPUs.
Yeah, but we already had the full size gtx 1080 ti from Gigabyte for cheaper and that will deal with the heat way better than a mini. People still said that was not a good deal and should wait. And before anyone says the Gigabyte cards had a fan problem, that was ironically the more expensive cards they did.
Roll up, roll up, check out the yet again cheaper deal. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/zotac-gtx-1080-ti-11gb-mini-ebuyer-for-55998-free-delivery-3117145
I have a mini itx build but can only recommend full 2 slot GPUs. These smaller ones run hotter and noisier. If your case is so small that you have to buy a small card, this is for you. Else stay away..... I bought my MSI GTX 1080 for £400 courtesy of HUKD years ago and am eyeing an upgrade to a Ti..... do i need it? No... do i wantz? Hell yeah! Tempted to vote cold on this.... but will simply not vote....
Zotac mini 1080p here and it runs like a dream, never had any issue with heat or coil whine at 4k or with VR games.
Thanks for the detailed reply. Your use case totally makes sense. I am leaning towards a good 1080 ti as the main choice but looks like the stock of some highly rated models is running short, and therfore remaining higher priced. My main priority is a quiet card to push frames to my 1440p 144hz monitor, or my 4k tv at 60hz. My current zotac amp extreme 980ti is still doing the job but makes an awful racket under load from certain games, especially at 4k. Even after buying a tool to set the fan profiles on the card (*grumble mumble* stupid gigabyte mobo proprietary fan control software limitations) As you are dabbling with GPGGPU rendering projects would the "deep learning" and "dedicated ray tracing shaders" fancy bells and whistles on the 2080 cards not be more more appealing to you? Interesting into about the memory heat, well within tolerances but concerns about longevity are reasonable. Been watching Gamers Nexus YouTube teardowns of the cards? Still in the fence really but learning more towards the gigabyte Aorus 2080 with super quiet load operation
I am indeed on the hunt for a decent 1080ti. My setup consists of a 4k 32" montior at 60hz, and I'd like the horsepower to ensure I utilise it fully. A 1080ti will be more than enough for the job for games, and possibly even 8k at around 25-30fps if 8k goes mainstream. So some future proofing is there too making the card a good long term investment. I also dabble in some GPGPU coding so I'm interested in playing around with a GPU with some oomf behind it for my projects. If a decent 2080 deal comes out I may consider it, but there's a recent theme of failing 2080s and 2080ti's. A good couple of articles highlight how the GDDR modules are operating at 75C+ at idle. So with these overheating issues the 20 series boards appear unreliable and risky. I'm banking on 1080ti being a wiser, more secure. purchase. Especially given how dropping £600+ on a card seems the norm nowadays :(
It's a solid deal, it's better than a 2070 and on par with a 2080. It's the smart way to go if you want a high end GPU brand new. Most reputable GPU comparison websites such as hardware unboxed and gamers nexus came to the same conclusion. Go look up the reviews.
Wouldn’t count on the warranty. If the invoice reflects any form of additional discount or descriptionthat indicates ex display there will be none.
Good sources, point proven. Agree 100%. Some folks need to read better before making snarky comments. Credit for your detailed and further informative reply. Out of interest. Are you in the market for a 1080 ti, considering 2080 deal of a good one comes up? What's the use case? 1440p 100hz +? 4k?
I should have bought this, I'll wait for it to come back in stock
Not sure what benchmarks you have been looking at, but there is a decent boost. Definitely not double and it's double the cost... but still a good boost. Unless you are only looking at 1080p reviews... but if you go 1440 or 4k then the 2080 ti gets much further ahead on most games.
Or you could pay double this for a 2080ti and barely get any discernable performance boost
Thank you for the details
I have the cards in seperate machines. Temps are anywhere from 60-73c depending on which game+graphics settings. 2560x1440 and 3440x1440
Only 1 back in stock now if anyone wants. Mine arrived today, happy that there is no coil whine, well none right now anyways. I expect some discounts in these coming months on the 1080Ti's so that they run out of stock and Nvidia can start pushing 2080's on people. You can tell that the 2000 series is priced badly, i.e way too expensive, since most of the 2080's are in stock because the 1080Ti's represent better value as no games implement ray-tracing or DLSS right now, so what you are getting now is the same performance but for more money and less VRAM??!! And people upgrading with money to burn only want the best so the 2080Ti's are hard to come by, but for the 100% price increase with only 30% increase performance who are you kidding here, are you're telling me 1080p 60 FPS ray-tracing is a £400 premium. Not to mention the 2070, which is most likely going to be DOA if any 1080Ti's are still in stock, if the 2080's have 1080Ti performance, then the 2070's will most likely have the 1080 performance. 1080's can be had for ~£400 and the RRP for a 2070 is £569, so for AIB cards +£600, so £200 for features which are not implemented yet... And you cannot say it's future proof because the RTX 2080Ti's barely runs 1080p 60fps, the 2070 has around half the ray-tracing cores, are we going to end up with half the FPS or is it just going to be dodgy lighting instead. Just what were they thinking with that card... Anyways, feel like I had to rant, because people might get wrapped up that the 2000 series is new and shiny but right now it is an absolute rip off to customers. I guess that's what you get if there's no competition.
Well seeing as VR only 'just' works on low settings on my rx480, my next upgrade is going to need to be a lil beefy to properly run a pimax 5k+. How I'll do that without spending so damn much I'm not sure
It has good technology and performs similarly to a GTX 1080 at a similar cost. The power consumption difference is exaggerated by people who have never used it, it is versatile for other tasks related to compute/mining, can be undervolted easily and supports FreeSync.
I don't follow. You think Vega is a good buy because it should be better than it actually is? How's it under appreciated? If we're talking about the Vega 64 card it's outperformed by the often cheaper GTX 1080, and at a lower power consumption.
Says benchmarks on DLSS and if you've seen any videos on RTX it is undeniably pretty. Obviously time will tell if it takes off, but the idea is taking graphics in a new direction which can only be a good thing.
So no cheap 1080TIs it seems so far :
Probably worth it though. I've two 380t Corsair cases to fill and the MSI Gaming will fit (just) and seems the best card for what I need too.
I wouldn’t of gone for a ‘mini’ version either way. I’d like to stick to an MSI gaming but it adds at least another £60 to any other brand.
This card doesn't do particularly well in benchmarks - one reviewer likened it to a 1080 in terms of speed (throttling) with more noise (not necessarily bad) than other cards.
Where have you heard that? If heard the exact opposite. Also from my own experience from the old 660 I had. It was an amazing card. Currently have MSI Gaming range card & considering picking a Zotac again as I’ve heard good things about their overclocks. Saying that I have been extremely impressed by my MSI Gaming card Overclocking range.
Edit: My apologies.
This model is know for winning and other problematic fan system. And the deal is over.
Just a heads up, these cards are now in stock.
It can also depend on other factors too. For example your PSU can be a contributing factor to coil whine, which can be another reason why some people get it on a given card and others don't. My current card(old launch GTX 970) has coil whine during higher FPS counts too, but since I always wear headphones I can't say I notice it. If I was playing without headphones It'd probably bother me more since it is pretty damn noticeable. Yeah seems like Scan are still taking orders for this despite the fact that it's been over due since the 3rd. Glad I kept my pre-order from Amazon since I wasn't in a rush to get it anyway (still need the rest of my PC parts....).
Just a heads up: ordered this two days ago with the hope it would come today. Still nothing. Moaned to Scan and they just tell me they don't know when it's going to come in despite saying it would be with me today. Not ordering from them again. (lol)
deal gone now
god yeah, the gaming x was bad for it. sent one back too
You need to look at the other sellers :)
697pounds you mean***
To be a bit clearer as this comment leaves something to interpret. If you are gaming at 1080p, DO NOT BUY the 1080ti. 1440p or 4k, the 1080ti and the 8400 with 16 gb ram does a great job, the bottleneck will not be your CPU at those resolutions. The hesitation I have is the impending 2070 coming out soon, which could continue the downward 1080ti trend.
Yeah, but a 2080 ti does it better. Keeping my eye out for a good 1080 ti deal to replace my evga 1080 ftw on my 2650x1440 setup.
To be fair, 1080ti can do 60fps on a single 4k monitor without much issues at all.
I really don't think bang for buck is there for 3 way sli and again it comes down to what gains you get in the games you play. Personally, I'm waiting on my 2080ti to ship to do 4k on a single monitor. Pre Ordered on the announcement day with a view to cancelling nearer the time if I was not happy with performance, but it suits my needs.
Currently running 4k on 3 Monitors. Can reach 30fps and for certain games, it is acceptable. 2080 TI looks to much and so wonder SLi is better option
This came back in stock at this price a little earlier today.
But is the price any good?? And yeah - a pc needs a graphics card!
Hello HMRC, I'm in the business of erm, entertainment. Yes let's go with that.
Oh noooo. Business don't need 1080ti. But I want it for my business.
im so old , i had to go to play after school, i even had to go to a phonebox to contact someone, we had bbc micro computers at my school, that we played donkey kong when teacher was out of the room (lol)
Kids are born with social media accounts nowadays and iPhone 6s as standard.
Crikey, kids are advancing fast nowadays if they can post messages like this they year they are born (lol)
2050 we will all be 32 years older I reckon
2030 we'll have this much GPU power in a mobile phone.
Seems SCAN sold out, cards are no longer availible, so have expired the deal.
It's a bundle, did the word + sign confuse you?
As posted elsewhere, this is better deal. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/msi-geforce-gtx-1080ti-gaming-11264mb-gddr5x-pci-express-graphics-card-gx-34f-ms.html
NVidia have had huge stock returned by some of the large GPU manufacturers, so I think there are plenty of Pascal GPU cards to go around. Personally, I think they have hugely increased the price on the RTX 20xx series cards, so people who have been waiting for an upgrade sees the existing GTX 10xx series as a "bargain". I would agree with @bouttime2 as paying an extra £100 for a 2 years old technology is not something I would do, but everyone to their own. A quick search on HUKD shows that you can pick up 1080Ti for under £600 and other GTX cards similarly going down in price, I would definitely wait until the RTX benchmark reviews comes out on 19th Sept (which has been delayed) and decide my new PC build.

That's fair enough. I know the difference between the SC SSC and FTW. I bought a GTX 970 SSC a few years back. But the difference is not £100. And this card is not currently worth over £700. But that's obviously just my opinion.
I'll wait for the reviews and see if the prices drop further (good chance they will!)
This! No & No! Can never put a price on Life.. but each day is a bit of a deal!! <3
If you pay me, then maybe.
How about 3 fiddy?
'I'm choosing the wrong person to mouth at though, I'll tell you that" what do you mean by that? At what point have I 'mouthed off' here? I disagreed with results of a specific hardware configuration, and you are acting as if I'm being rude?
Maybe it's the games you're running then, I don't know. You're choosing the wrong person to mouth off at though, I'll tell you that.
I think you are ignoring the detail where I've put 3 systems together that include this card and CPUs I've mentioned, tested them first hand, and have continuing accounts and experiences with said people. So I think we're done talking.
No I think you're failing to understand that I used to actually own this stuff so I have my own experience to go on rather than some random goon's YouTube video.
I guess you have a fundamental misunderstanding of resolution/GPU/CPU scaling then. Not much more to talk about!
I know but there are people that don't like them. I've always found them OK and way better than overclockers. I voted hot.
who have 9.3/10 on Trustpilot :/
Possibly because it is being sold by Scan.
Yep, tongue-in-cheek comment.
glad i got out of the pc market, if it was this price last year i would have picked this up lol. I saved my wallets life .. ;)
With the RTX20## being the first iteration of the 'RTX' line along with its bespoke RTR and Tensor cores, on paper it seems like something not a wise investment in the first place; you're effectively being an early adopter to new technologies. In the medium term it likely is worth waiting for the next iteration, so they can figure out the weaknesses and positives of their new setup, as well as iterating with 7nm (which AMD are already fabbing for their Zen2 chips, so it's not a pie-in-the-sky goal) and most likely with nvidia directly working against a more well-detailed framework for the nextgen consoles due in 2020. So what that means ultimately is this is a pretty sound bet if you're looking for something high end to tide you over until late 2020 when the proposed Xbox Scarlett release is, though I'd still personally wait for the RTX to actually release seeing as the GTXs outright cannot do the new RTX gubbins due to lacking the physical hardware for it. If the consensus starts to form that the GTXs are 'lower class' cards due to the missing featureset, it might knock a few quid off prices further.
You forget the sheepy fan bois
Wait for Navi Wait for 5nm Wait for 3080ti Wait for Intel gpu
I don't understand why people are voting this one lower yet the other is a pre-order, they may not even be able to fulfill those orders. People really don't seem to understand what they are voting for.
Its gaming not gaming x at overclockers.
Cold because the Gaming X is the same price.
You can’t have compared it a lot, it’s the same one they’ve used for years without a redesign - I had this on an RX 570 and it could barely keep that cool. Fitting it on a 1080 Ti is just madness. The red Gaming X cooler is a massive step-up.
Yup cooler is bad, same pcb board as gaming X but with a cooler designed for the gtx 1070 with a revised design. https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/2927-msi-1080ti-armor-review-high-temps?showall=1
This is what I plan to do. I can't even imagine RT being effective or coming straight into everyday games. This stuff will take years imo. That's where second and third generation comes into the market from NVIDIA to which I'm happy to buy. This RTX first generation will extremely expensive imo.
What XD What XD On topic: 1080ti can be had £400/450 not new but but but
I have a 10bit panel. If it was a TN the issue isn't noticeable.
Ive never heard this before in nearly 22 years of pc gaming. Your graphics card isn't the one to wash out colour your display will be the issue. Get a new monitor with a different panel, have a look online for what panel best suits your needs for colour replication. If what you were saying was actually true then gpus would be quoting how accurate their true colour representation was on the front of the box and those into photo editing would be buying cards to get great colours but they don't, they buy quality displays to replicate true to life colours and cards to push the pixel count.
I would buy this, but the colours are washed out on Nvidia compared to AMD. Anyway to improve?
£250 or gtfo
Indeed. Interestingly, bidvoy ebay price tracker is showing that used 1080 Ti prices were falling before Nvidia unveiled the RTX 2080 and Ti, but now the used prices are starting to rise. That shows just how disappointing the 2080/Ti reveal was and how much the silly prices have encouraged people to buy used 1080 Tis instead.
It definitely won't be that. Have a read of the article below. https://www.extremetech.com/computing/275859-dont-buy-the-ray-traced-hype-around-nvidias-rtx-2080-family The final kicker is the price. Over £1,000 for the 2080Ti is just absurd.
Good price for what it is but literally the worst cooler out there - can barely keep an RX 570 cool so what hope do you have with this... I'd probably buy used now, this whole 'mining breaks cards' thing is a silly myth. Other than premature wear on the fans (and I've had enough brand new cards with DOA fans), it'll have been undervolted and underclocked.
I broke and bought an evga card, i need a ti for my vr rig. But its an intreaging situation with RTX. Wait and we may see Ti's either rise in cost slightly or go OOS because they are better power/cost for current gaming OR RTX will be cheaper or more powerful than we expect making the 10 card obsolete and those of us that got ti's recently will feel really silly. Still, lower 10 prices = good, RTX = good, 8 core mainstream cpus @150quid = good. Nvidea having a monopoly = bad!
