    I have seen a few 1070s and 1080s go to *almost msrp. However no sub $800 1080TIs just yet. Meanwhile, shopping at a mall in Northern California.

    I am waiting for mainstream places like amazon and newegg have those prices for new stock. Its a shame no more microcenters in the bay area anymore.

    Looks like they are starting to be priced at MSRP. Here's a sale 10 hrs ago.

    I'm waiting to see if I can get an EVGA right in the window of the 90 step up so I don't lose any cash on boosted pricing.
    I would think EVGA would want prices back down to MSRP before the launch of the new stuff.

    I don't even know how it would work if someone wanted to steup a $1000 1080Ti to a $699 1180.

    Crypto had a rally these last 2 weeks so the prices may not remain low. However, almost everyone has predicted that april/may would see prices coming back to reality, and the patterns don't lie.

    EVGA has them in stock I would be tempted to get a AIO from them but I won't gain anything except for a DVI port and a white shroud.

    The lowest I saw was for an EVGA 11G-P4-6796-K3 for $820 so I jumped on it yesterday from EVGA direct. Looks like they went back up, though, to around $940 as of this morning. Just have to pull the string when you see a deal (or at least what you are willing to stomach).

    What happens when I Step-Up to a cheaper product?
    You will only have to pay for the return shipping at the time of paying for your Step-Up. EVGA will not credit you the difference.

    Besides, if you've a 1080ti, don't buy the 1180. (or whatever xxx04 GPU hits) It would be as bad an idea as the guys who "upgraded" there 980tis with 1080s instead of waiting for the 1080tis and a real performance increase.

    That's assuming it's not significantly better right? Do we already know it's not going to be much of a speed increase?

    Given Nvidia dominance and preivous history expect the 1180 to be around 10% faster and more efficient the a 1080ti.

    With that said and looking at nVidia release history, we're bound to see an 1180 Ti (or equivalent) released. IMO a 10% performance increase isn't enough to make the jump. I'd wait for the 1180 Ti if I were sitting on a 1080 Ti.

    Does most project that prices will continue to drop or will there be an increase again?

    I don't think they would drop that sharply in 90 days but I could be wrong. They could exclude 1180's from step up for the immediate launch so they don't have to deal with situations like you mentioned.

    Is it confirmed to be referred as 1180?

    I highly doubt it. Just what everyone is expecting them to call it I guess.

    I have seen one in stock right now 1080ti under 750 after 20 MIR. However, with a supposedly close release of the 1180, I will just wait. I am in no rush to get something since I don't even have a high end gaming monitor.

    Are the rumors worth rumoring about? with new gpu's coming out this year, Miners will get the full shipping container which leaves $500 1080ti's with variable lifespan for us to pick up?

    The thing with the GTX 1080 Ti is that there is a good chance you will get close to a year out of it before nVidia releases the GTX 2080 Ti. The GTX 2080 will be a side-grade at best. Plus I would be shocked if nVidia didn't jack up the price on the Volta generation. Combined with low stock and price gouging, what we're seeing now on the GTX 1080 Ti cards could work out to be an equivalent or an even better deal.

    The best plan of attack would be to get a GTX 1080 Ti card at a discount though. If and when they start getting cleared out. Maybe buy one with a credit card that gives you price protection.
