OK they said "Next Week" What does that mean? That's for a FE type card correct? Is that for pre-orders or upgraders? Any news on AIB?
I think FE is potentially attractive depending how the others price their cooling solutions and how the binning goes. I think 2 ghz is the target and holding boost the thermal challenge
I can't speak for the 1080Ti, but my regular 1080 FE (PNY Flavor, if it matters) has made me very happy. You can get better out-of-the-box overclocking from a card with a meatier aftermarket cooler, but the Founders Edition one is every bit as good as nVidia said it was, and it also happens to look really nice.
I wish we knew more about pricing on the partner boards w/ aftermarket cooling. I also wish we knew more about the "improvements" in the FE cooling.
I think I'm going to go ahead and try to snag a pre-order from nvidia. I'll cancel it before it ships if the partner boards look like a better deal.
The button works for me. Thanks for the link.
Edit: I was also surprised about the tax. I'm a but bummed about that to be honest. Here in TN we have a 9.25% sales tax. I also have to pay tax at Amazon and Newegg.
Nvidia site now showing preorder but the button isnt working for me. Maybe I'm too antsy lol\
Update: Site worked fine and I preordered. I am surprised they charged tax (Oklahoma)
Oklahoma does not have tax on Amazon or Newegg, so if they put a preorder on their site I'll cancel this one and reorder. I also did next day shipping so the $700 purchase became $800. Oh well, still a really good deal for that much of a performance boost.
