    I emailed EVGA asking about the lack of a section for the 1080TI cards. Typically they would show out of stock, but they have removed the 1080Ti entirely from the products page. I still see 1030/1050/1050Ti/1060/1070/1070Ti/1080/2070/2080/2080Ti but no 1080Ti.

    What I sent:

    Subject: GTX 1080Ti Discontinued?

    Comment: I''ve been watching for the 1080Ti cards to show up for purchase again but it looks like that category has been removed entirely from your website. Are they just out of stock long term or have they been discontinued? I found it very odd since the 1080 and lower cards were still available.

    Here is the reply I got back.

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out to EVGA. Unfortunately, we do not have an ETA on if the card will come back in stock. As the option has been removed it is most likely not going to come back in stock. If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to contact us 24/7 by responding to this email or our Customer Support Line 1 (888) 881-3842.

    Regards,

    EVGA


    I remember during the GPU mining crisis that they removed complete sections of cards and they came back, but I thought this was a pretty odd reply from them. Are 1080Ti not something that would still be in production or is NV shorting chips right now to build 2xxx series?

    I noticed that last week too but couldn’t figure it out. Didn’t bother emailing.


    Did get myself a brand new ASUS Strix 1080Ti though!! :) :)

    I am about to go to a competitor as well. I have always run EVGA since my first GTX260. Prior to that I had two Asus cards and they both ended up artifacting and had to be baked twice before I finally upgraded. I still loved those cards lol.

    Yah the card I have has a transferable extended warranty till mid 2020 so I’m good! Supposed to be the best 1080ti on the Market too.

    Steve at Gamer's Nexus talked about the shortage of 1080 Ti cards around the first of November. There was mention of that on [H] Front Page News in a discussion of RTX 2080 Ti RMA rate. Better get any 1080 Ti's while you can.

    Don't quote me on this but I'm fairly certain that there's an article out there stating that Nvidia discontinued the 1080Ti completely. I recall reading something about it.

    I'm fairly certain that once stock of these cards is gone, it's gone for good.

    Since 1080 ti has been discontinued by NVIDIA, EVGA will no longer be able to offer this product. Good deals to be found in the second hand market though.

    I don't understand why this is a big deal. I think the 2XXX series is a waste of money, however, now that the 2080 is coming into the high $600s to low $700s it's the same price as a new 1080Ti. I think it's deplorable that Nvidia is charging what they are, but you're getting a card that's slightly faster at the same amount of money if you were buying new anyway. Granted, you'd expect the next gen cards to be even faster or priced better like their other releases (like 980Ti performance at 1070 $379 price point...anyone?)

    The real value is in used 1080Ti's which are often as cheap as 2070's.

    I just checked newegg and there are very few 2080s that are 700. A few blower style coolers but the vast majority are still in the 800-900 range. Keep in mind they probably will be increasing prices on them in 1Q 2019.

    My biggest desire to have a 1080Ti over the 2080 etc is the fact that the 1080ti is a proven card with drivers that work and software like precision X that actually works like it is supposed to. The 20xx series has been plagued with problems and I really don't feel like being a beta tester for nvidia right now.

    Don't know why this is surprising. Reports of Maxwell being discontinued came out a month before Pascal was launched. Reports of Kepler being discontinued came out the same week Maxwell launched.

    Then they are going to sell even less of them :p. Newegg isn't the only vendor. Here's a Zotac for $729 after coupon. Ebay is running another 10% off on Sunday where you could get one in the low $700's. Obviously, in the $800-900 range it's a terrible buy. At $700 it's comparable to a "new" 1080Ti and it's probably a better buy.

    I think you're exaggerating the issues (driver's work fine...gamble with space invaders). Sure with Ray Tracing and DLSS you're a beta tester, but for regular rasterized performance it's "proven" to be in the same ball park of a 1080Ti (generally slightly faster). Obviously, a used 1080Ti for ~$500 is a great deal, but if both cards are the same price I'd probably opt for the RTX 2080.

    Yeah I'm just trying to to an apples to apples comparison. I bought a 1080 ti (top end air cooler model) back in 2017 for $750. If I bought the equivalent 2080 today from newegg it would be $900.

    Of course they aren't. Why would they be?

    1080ti been out of production for months now. What is out there now is just left over stock. Why would any company keep production going for a product that has been replaced with something new?

    I guess I have just never seen the stock deplete this fast. Couple that with the older 1080 and 1070 etc being available still and I was just a bit miffed that I can't buy one now.

    We first got reports that Pascal was ceasing production back in June-July. It was confirmed in September. So Pascal has been out of production for 3-6 months already. Since there was a report of overstock due to trying to meet the artificial crypto demand I can believe the June date.

    I think the stock is depleting because rumors of the 2000 series being flawed is slowly making it's rounds despite Nvidia's NDA. It's sitting somewhere around a 20-30% failure rate. I'm on bad 2080Ti number 2 myself.

    Yeah now the 1080Ti is OOS they could possibly increase in price again. 1070s and V64/V56s are the 'steals' of Q4. I bet the Vegas will also go out of stock in a few months, lot of people picking them up too. Navi is likely Q3-Q4 though so not worried at all... didn't want to play 'thrashed mining HBM degradation' lottery on the used market this time around so jumped in now.

    I'm sure people buy on newegg for convenience(sorting is miles ahead of most sites) or memories of how they used to be customer oriented. Mwave and Newegg were my go to sites, now I mainly do Amazon or my local shop depending on price and if I need it now.
