It's not like you can find an 8gb RX 480 for $229 either.

With the 1070 and 1080, I didn't condone the idea, but it made sense at least. No customs at launch, want one now? Buy the FE at at a premium. I along with others assumed that was just the early adopters version and prices for aibs would fall more in line with msrp. That would make sense. I also understand aib partners thinking, "if they'll pay that for a reference, let's sell customs even higher". That also makes sense. What I don't understand is releasing a founders edition at the same time as customs, for $50 over msrp. I would only assume customs would then cost more than $300, if they were less, what would be the point of releasing the reference card? Msi and Asus have both been making blower style coolers, so if it's for sff, and since there is no sli, then you're most likely covered. The only other way it makes sense is if nvidia is trying to give it a 'prestige' status, so sure, if you're that silly over nvidia, buy the worse cooler for more money.

It's not the most consumer friendly strategy, but if they can get away with it you can't blame 'em. If nvidia thinks it's a success, I can see next gen having a several month period after a card launches where the only cards available are FEs through nvidia's website

It makes perfect sense. NVIDIA can count money just fine and they can read public forums like this one. They see their fanbase is a green army defending everything questionable about them and putting the company before their own interests. They see you guys willing to pay any asking price for anything they make...so yea put out a plastic toy cooler on the non-SLI capable joke60 and price it at $300. Team green instantly began justifying it based on that fake graph from videocardz that the site owner likely created himself.

Cheapest 1070 is 399 and 1080 609.

1) That you can actually buy

2) That's still above MSRP

Basically, what Nvidia did is price the GTX 1080 at 699 and allow AIBs to undercut the reference edition's MSRP.
The cooler on the GTX 1080 is no different from the cooler we saw on cards like the 780 Ti. The interesting part is how Nvidia manages to charge more for the GTX 1080, while it's the small die instead of the big one.

Inb4 $1500 GTX Titan X successor (Wait, forgot: $1600 for the founders edition. Somehow they'll come up with an excuse to make an "extra founders" edition of the normal reference rolleyes.gif).
I should say: inb4 massive sales on the $1500 card.

You could wonder: "What do you care what I buy? It's my money". Yes, you're right. Except that all of you fools give Nvidia a clear signal: "Do not price your products competitive - we'll buy them at ripoff prices as well". And in doing so, you screw over anyone who refuses to pay a small fortune for a high-end card.

All those fools buying Gucci bags at ridiculous prices, they are giving Gucci a clear signal "Do not price your products competitive - we'll buy them at ripoff prices as well". rolleyes.gif

We live in a capitalistic socity; things are worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Nvidia is not a charity and will maximize their profits just like every other business. Nvidia's GPUs are priced competitive to the alternatives available, apparently the fastest GPU available has a lot of value in today's market. tongue.gif

I think the 2 pin connector is for a LED or something. There is a black 4 pin connector in the right.
