[Various] GTX 1080 Reviews - Page 596  

post #5951 of 6175
Today marks the first time that I'm aware of where a GTX 1080 came into stock and did not sell out within minutes on Newegg. As I write this, there's a Zotac Founder's Edition available and it's been that way for at least a few hours. There are also FE's still available, after a number of hours, from the Nvidia Store.

I've also been glancing at comments on nowinstock.net. It seems like those folks, who I believe to represent a broader spectrum of potential 1080 buyers than us OCN nerds, are starting to pass up the FE cards in hopes of an AIB. I find it interesting that despite major shortages, those that desperately want a 1080 are starting to turn their nose up at the FE.

As they should. The FE is nothing more than a shameless cash grab, and people are finally starting to clue in to that.

Still rolling along just fine with OG Titans. 3 years and counting with still plenty of life left in them.

Ah, I see. I'm curious as well. I was going to hold out for one for my second build, but decided to eat the cost of a 1070 FE so that it will relevant for that particular system/build for many years.

That doesn't change the fact that even at that performance some of us find the 1080 underwhelming compared to what Nvidia COULD have released if they decided to make the BEST video card they possibly could, rather than releasing something that was just good enough and then charging a $150 premium for it. Its a great card but it ain't beyond criticism...

Actually you're the main one in the thread talking about the card(s) you have and why you don't need a 1080...continuously...if anyone is searching for validation, it appears to be you. thumb.gif

but what does that have to do with gtx 1080 reviews?
post #5956 of 6175
like I said before my local shops have plenty of 1080 FE (at least they are listed)

but AIB 1080 are virtually non-existent except 1 or 2 listings of Palit


so yeah FEs arent exactly getting sold out here (but Nvidia probably made more then enough from what they did sell already), but the custom 1080s are a totally different story

as it should be, tbh I dont even remember the last time I bought a reference card of anything

FE is great for watercooling - you can even fit brackets for 980Ti and TitanX for AIO. Also, the price for FE is usually around 730 euro here, while other models go from 760-1300.
post #5958 of 6175
I could see getting an FE and adding an AIO via a bracket like the Kraken or HG10. It seems like the cards all clock about the same so I'm not worried about 8+6 pin or phases or whatever... but it would be hard to pay a $100 premium for Worst cooler.

But then you'd be paying the extra money for the FE, plus the cash for a disposable AIO................?

Well, the AIO is reusable, no? Maybe it's the bracket that would be one and done. But, right, paying the premium for the worst cooler and then the cost of a bracket seems a bit off. I only mention it as I kind'a like the idea of a adding an AIO to a reference card but not if I have to a pay a premium to get the reference card in the first place.
