You do realize that is a joke to poke fun at the cards selling out so fast, right? I have several folks that got numbers on what was sold this morning, but the figures are too far apart so those are not reliable to publish. So I went with a joke....36.Kyle, you know I'm a big fan of the [H], but you went a little too far with the "36 sold" thing.
Bashing both sides in one day. Impressive.
And not one word about this article from the people screaming bias against AMD...yet again.
Kyle, maybe you should try releasing the Nvidia bashing article first next time.
-edit- nvm the whiners at OCN and [H] are still going at it and still haven't noticed. That tactic may not work. Those fanboy goggles have some strong filters on them.
What the hell is 'Whisper Silent?" LMFAO.EDIT: Gone

Evga in stock at Newegg... for now.
Want something even more sad, look at "Sold Listings", fools and their money are quickly parted.
"NVIDIA's normal reply would rattle off something like, "Well Kyle, we had so many that they were falling off the truck on the way over, and since GTX 1080 is so freaking awesome there is no way we could keep up with demand. We are as surprised as you are"

Ha ha, very funny...Quote Removed - I have been banning all day 1 post guys today that have signed up to gripe, bitch, and moan in one way or another. If you want to bust my balls and have been here a week, go for it. - KYLE
This guy created a new account so he could hide the fact that he complained about the "tax" and swore to never purchase one but did anyways.
To be fair, that can be said for any company, their sole objective is to make money.Complete bullshit. Charging more for the FE was not necessary. How do we know this? Because this is not actually the first video card launch ever, nobody did it before, and yet the world did not end.
Nvidia charged more for the FE for one very simple reason-- they like money.
I'm really excited about getting them. I wonder if the ASUS Rog 3 Way SLI bridge will be okay for these: https://www.asus.com/websites/global/products/dBG3FXQwdM5YJx1K/img/3way-photo.jpg
I am planning on running 2 Way SLI. Someone posted that a third GTX 1080 should be used for PhysX. Now that's just silly. If I really want a dedicated PhysX card, I can always use a GTX 950 2GB, should be more than enough. Just my two cents.
This "article" is interesting to me - after reading the great AMD article about their inner-workings this article kind of reads as an attempt by [H] to shush any people that state they have NVIDIA bias.
I just posted in another thread about this - but I had multiple opportunities to buy cards and ended up getting a couple from EVGA. If you wanted one and tried - you could get cards.
How are you reaching that conclusion?As I suspected, $699 is the real MSRP, not $599. So, the 1070 is a $449 card. I'm sure we'll EVENTUALLY see cards approaching the advertised MSRP, just not within the launch window.
How are you reaching that conclusion?
Here in the UK the custom AIB 1080 can be had at the cheaper end from £525 to £550 - will not be in stock for a couple of weeks as that is when they start to go on sale.
The 1080FE at the cheaper end is £620 to £635.
Some of the FE models are even more than that due to the quirks of the AIB partner and their extra support-guarantee/etc, is it worth that excess hmmm
So the MSRP is working over here, and these prices also are slightly increased with the retailer making a bit more due to the stock-popularity of these cards; they sold out of their 1080FE in 7 minutes, and that was 500 cards.

Also this post shows that they are varying price: EVGA Pricing on GTX 1080 and the EVGA basic models are pretty close to the MSRP - closer than I expected tbh.
