    Videocardz has a list of many of the Nvidia 1080 reviews. You can certainly get your fill of reviews from this list:

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Reviews | VideoCardz.com

    The Techpowerup review has loads of benchmarks at most resolutions and also a performance per dollar chart.

    The Bottom line of this card should improve games with stuff like hairworks you shouldn't have to use a dedicated physx card just to run smooth

    Here is what I've been waiting to see, an AIB 1080 card. Hot hardware got their hands on a couple of EVGA 1080 Superclocked ACX 3.0 edition cards.

    EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Superclocked ACX 3.0 Edition And GTX 1080 SLI Sneak Peek | HotHardware

    First I'm looking at Hot hardware's numbers on the 1080 reference board (Founder's Edition) below:

    Now I'm looking at their EVGA Superclocked Edition below which includes SLI numbers but also has the EVGA single card numbers.

    Notice that the EVGA card (better cooling) isn't producing Fire Strike numbers any better than Nvidia's reference FE. Don't know if its stock/boost clock is the same as the FE. Seems to have the same one 8 pin connector.

    Frankly this is the type of card I would be interested in, a reference card with better cooling than the FE. Question is what is the price? The cheapest FE cards I see are $910 CDN before taxes. If EVGA is starting with the $599 U.S. price (not $699) and adding their cooling I would expect/hope the price isn't much different than the FE. Guess we will see.

    Looks like that "67c at 2000Mhz" that Nvidia showed off at the announcement was aided by something like an aggressive fan profile or secondary cooling. That's disappointing.



    Single card benchmarks for the FE cards aren't as good as I'd hoped they'd be. Looks like I may be grabbing a cheap 980Ti for SLI until the 1080Ti drops unless AIB cards are significantly better than FE cards.

    That's exactly right, disappointing indeed. If you look at Hardware Canuck's site I believe they were able to reproduce Nvidia's presentation numbers but it required setting the fan at 100%. They also did some overclocking (the new way with Pascal) and I believe they spent two hours getting the overclock "right".

    The "impression given" that at defaults the card will hit 2100 Mhz and be at a cool 67c is bull crap. Every website reviewer noticed the card hits 80c+ quickly and throttles back. From what I read it is a good card though but definitely a 980Ti overclocked comes close to the 1080 performance. Most I've seen with 980TI's are waiting to see what the 1080 TI has to offer.

    #1 is my 980G1 SLI
    #2 is a GTX 1080

    Now keep in mind i am overclocked and using a 6700k while this guy is using a i5-6600k

    Data starting to come in on pricing and specs on AIB boards. This is from wccftech:

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Custom / Non-Reference Models Round-Up - TwinFrozr VI, WindForce Xtreme, ROG STRIX, ACX 3.0, AMP, iChill and A Lot More

    But I also pulled the following from legit reviews on EVGA models and pricing:

    EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Video Cards Arrive With 4 Models To Choose From! - Legit Reviews

    So this is saying we will have AIB boards with better cooling, better clocks and in many cases lower prices than the $699 Nvidia reference "Founders Edition".

    Someone answer me this. Who is buying that reportedly "sold out" Founders Edition card?

    That's a good question. EVGA's site has been up and down most of the morning. At this point, I've just decided to hold out for a while. See what comes along with AIB and 1080Ti cards.
