NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Now Available

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card is now available. Available in two kinds, the "Founders Edition," which is essentially the SKU's reference edition; and the various custom-design cards; the GTX 1080 starts at US $599. This is a "suggested" price by NVIDIA for how cheap custom-design cards can be sold at. The Founders Edition SKU, sold though its add-in card partners, is priced at $699. Expect most custom-design SKUs to either be priced between $599-$699, or above, making the GTX 1080 the costliest performance-segment SKU by NVIDIA. The company also put out pricing of the GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition, which on sale from 10th June. It's priced at $449. Custom-design boards should start around $379.

Based on the 16 nm GP104 silicon, powered by the "Pascal" GPU architecture, the GeForce GTX 1080 features 2,560 CUDA cores, 160 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5X memory interface, holding 8 GB of memory. With its TDP rated at 180W, the reference design card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. The GPU is clocked at 1607 MHz, with 1733 MHz maximum GPU Boost, and 10 GHz (effective) memory, working out to a memory bandwidth of 320 GB/s. The card supports modern APIs such as DirectX 12 (feature-level 12_1), Vulkan, and OpenGL.

619 Pound Sterling! That's $906.. USD.

Searched Egg and I'm not seeing them 7AM PST. Not to say there not there I've found the new stuff won't always show in their search box.

Found this landing page of Egg's, but as of yet no pricing.

800 euro, for a card some of you call "mid range", that does Crysis 3 at 2560x1440 at 51 fps.

Not at 4k, not 120fps, not a just released or future game, nope, crysis 3, not even 60fps, for 800 euro.
Good stuff.

Nvidia knows how to extract maximum cash. 1080 is far weaker than a 980ti at comparable clocks, so to make more money off the same performance, they just cut the chip down (more dies on wafer) and cranked up the clocks, so it APPEARS much faster. They're not fooling me. Reviews against pansy ass clocked reference 980ti did everyone a disservice. I haven't seen any reviews of it with a 980ti clocked how we're all running ours (about 1,500). No one would buy the 1080 if they saw that.

They're making, what, over double than they did on Maxwell?

The wait continues and you'll get nothing if AMD doesn't deliver.

At the end of the day it does all boil down to competition, and as it stands AMD has nothing (unless of course the $1500 Radeon Pro Duo floats your boat).

Fact is Nvidia just had another bumper day, and it's only just begun.

lol in Australia 1080 are $1,200, thats $862 US dollars but just to compare , a 980Ti can be had for $600 or a FuryX is around $700 US.

This card is very over-rated but you have to give Nvidia credit for marketing.

At those prices they must be booking seats for each card on a flight out.

Here in South Africa the Founders Edition is priced at R16,000. Which equates to around $1018 USD. FML
