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?

Links please

I wonder how the shitty Turbo versions will be priced now that FE tax is no longer there. What's the point of buying those for MSRP when you can just buy the way better FE?

How good are the FE's? Deciding between that and possibly a strix/evga's counterpart

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

Thinking of an EVGA hybrid FE mod :), too bad I can't use a Corsair AIO instead....(or perhaps I can mod it?)

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 have a water block on mine now (better block selection being the main reason I paid the FE tax), and its performance is in line with most other 1080s I've seen reviewed. It runs pretty consistently at ~2075 MHz with the power limit turned all the way up, and only ever gets up to maybe 50 degrees.

I would not hesitate to buy a Founder's Edition card again, especially if it's as fast as the 1080Ti is supposed to be.

AFAIK earlier ones have been generally noisier and more eager to throttle than the 3rd party models annd obviously with lower stock clocks. I doubt Nvidia has improved the design much for this one so I'd probably only pick one if you absolutely must get it right away, need a blower type cooler or get one with a better price than the 3rd party models.

My interest in them is mostly to slap an AIO watercooler on it. I do expect that you would need to figure out how to mount some heatsinks for VRAM and VRM.

I currently have such a setup on a non-reference MSI 980 Ti which just happened to have separate heatsinks for those already, been happy with it and hope to go the same route with my next GPU because it is quieter and overclocks better than the stock cooler.

Man..not sure if I should just get the blower style reference card and get it ASAP or wait for an AIB card. Decisions, decisions.

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.

I think I'm going to do the same. I've never had a reference card before, though.

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.

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.

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)


Me too! I'm in OK and my tax was $115 on 2 cards...fucking hell. I was refreshing the screen at 10am, waiting for this to go live, I hope I got in on the first round of pre-orders. That said, I'll be refreshing Amazon at 12:00 on the 10th to try and get one there so I don't have to pay tax.

Hopefully water blocks aren't that too far out as well as there being some left for us amazon people ! They released an updated amazon prime CC that gives %5 cash back through amazon purchases, nice $35 discount.

Has any Canadian here ordered from the website before? Are there any duty charges outside of the shipping cost? Taxes for us Canadians?

Urgh, so tempted to preorder, although I've had happy times with my hybrid 980ti so I'd really prefer a hybrid model. But then, I could just stick an evga AIO cooler on it, but then it would be more expensive, and so on and so on.

Wrong: Amazon will begin collecting Oklahoma sales tax on March 1, 2017. Source. Newegg is still in the clear.

The only reason why I know (or care) is because I live here, too.

I'm waiting until EVGA gets their 1080 TI. Not because I want to be loyal to EVGA, but because I know the darn thing is going to be backorder on every site for a while... and I don't have the money to preorder it as it becomes available until payday.

Fuuuuuck. I buy everything on Amazon, I guess that's going to change. Was nice while it lasted...

Edit: looks like the pre-orders are gone.

I have a preorder done, and a EK Titan XP waterblock already shipped. I figure I can sit on the card until the reviews hit the net, and return/sell it if it turns out to be less than advertised.

I'm normally really against pre-orders, but given the history of the Ti series performance, I don't think this card will have any surprises. As long as it's within 95% of Titan XP performance, I'll be happy with my purchase.

Wow. Good to know. Even though the news saddens me, thanks for the info!

FWIW, I added a 1080 to cart and still shows no sales tax. ::shrugs::
