In europe you can get several different custom 1080 s new for below 500€, the cheapest currently costs 460€ (the KFA model) ! There is also a MSI cashback running for european buyers, if you buy a MSI product, (like a 1080) , for example if you buy the 1080 armor for 516€ you get 50€ cashback, so the card totals to 466€.
There are also many other custom new 1080s available for below 500€.
What bugs me, there is still barely any information regarding the real performance, launch/availability and price of vega. I really start to lose interest, and i seriously doubt that vega will be able to compete with 1080 performance for 460€...
The fact that we barely get any credible news from amd lets me guess that vega launch may still be some time in the future, maybe it will really be launched only at the end of june Edited by aliquis - 5/6/17 at 11:23am
