For some reason I had this crazy idea that Nvidia would have plenty of 1080's available. It really sucked having $$ ready to spend, but no product available. I fell for the hype!
And.... I was finally lucky enough to score a EVGA 1080 FE on Newegg after many attempts !
So paper launch...
Hey frack you! This was an poorly planned "launch" with shit availability. I had an easier time buying a Radeon X800 XT PE back in the day than this 1080 Flounders Edition. I'm so disgusted that I may just wait for AMD Vega or the inevitable 1080 TI card.
Voodoo 2 PCI, which was a huge piece of shit, and actually slower than my integrated Matrox G200.
I returned the V2 and bought a Voodoo 3 2000 PCI, which was a huge upgrade, and a perfect card for UT99.
They don't launch with their super polished A++ games because they will sell almost every game they can put on the shelves without the extra effort anyways. Also, publishers realize that the PS3/360 market is huge compared to the potential PS4/Xbone market of about 2-4 million systems by the end...
