Hence why I have one, and when in stock a second one when I pick up a samsung 4k tv.

Hell yeah, getting the curved? I got one and I'm never going back to one of those midget monitors ever again.

In my case, it was more a lack of GPU due to the 1080 being a paper launch and my selling my previous GPU. I'm not overly happy with nvidia right now...might switch to amd next time I upgrade thanks to nvidia being shady with the pascal launch. DX12 is supposedly great for crossfire which in theory will make amd more attractive. We shall see what the future holds.

Is there any solid benchmarks leaked yet? Something besides synthetics? (Ashes of Singularity is a synthetic as far as I'm concerned, too)

nope. but i am not trying to infer the performance would be same/better; i am wondering if performance is close enough with a $230 price tag(8gb), nvidia might adjust the price of the 1070. smile.gif

On the plus side, as long as you don't mind the extra noise there's practically no difference between the FE and the AiB cards in terms of performance as long as you manually set the fan to 80%. The extra $$$ hurts...but I guess in your position that's not really a huge factor given the FTW is nearly the same price anyhow.

Memory Express still has the ASUS FE 1080 in stock if people are getting antsy. $10 shipping Canada wide.

overclocking headroom is pretty much the same too which was dissapointing. I hope b&h ships it as promised. when I used their live chat service they told me they're expecting the cards on the 26th and will ship preorders asap

That in a nutshell is why I don't overly mind getting the FE, I'm getting the same performance as everyone else.

the irony is out of all the reviews I've found online the FTW card actually overclocks worse than most FE cards. If i get a 2100 oc on mine I'll be really happy thumb.gif

Just grabbed a FTW off newegg ( they just got some stocks in from EVGA, but out of stocks now, maybe more coming) since /r/nvidia is full off QC fail on my incoming Gigabyte 1080 Xtreme Gaming(users do claim it goes 2088 out of box and <70C). Might want to keep an eye on newegg for new stocks this week or next.

So I think I will be able to compare the two cards and decide which one to keep, pretty sure I can ebay or RMA(if QC problem with 1080 Xtreme Gaming applies to mine) away the other card without issue in this market. biggrin.gif
