    I heard the EVGA site was struggling with the number of hits its been getting today. Overclockers UK is listing details and prices (pounds) on pretty much all of them.

    Check out this link:

    I'm going to get one of these. I am very tired of 770 Kepler SLI in a DX12 world that makes me deal with a one card 2GB scenario. Being mainly a Full HD 1080P gamer I figure one of these should handle my needs easily so I'm not waiting for 1080 TI and related pricing.

    Question is, which one. I'm liking the Asus Strix, EVGA ACX 3.0 and look at that there are a couple like the MSI Gaming X RGB with an 8 pin and 6 pin connector.

    Would like to see if they can maintain "just" their boost clocks without throttling back too much.

    I really wish Microcenter hadn't cancelled my order on that 980Ti I bought, as EVGA has added 3 of their 1080 models to the Step Up Program. That probably would have triggered me into getting one.

    I'm really leaning towards just grabbing a dirt cheap 980Ti in the currently flooded used market and running SLI, despite all the little issues that come with it. I figure that will work well enough for me, and isn't overkill anymore since I've moved up to 1440p/144Hz.

    Looks like someone let their 1070 review slip a bit early. If the benchmarks are to be believed, then the 1070 is a bit faster than a 980Ti.

    Lots of reviews on the 1070 coming in now. No doubt in my mind that it's a good card (as is the 1080). Guess we will soon see the AIB pricing on the 1070. It should be positioned as a main stream gaming card, the one most can afford so we will see if it becomes as popular as the 970 was.

    As far as the 1070 being faster than the 980TI, seems so under certain benchmarking conditions. I'm sure you have noticed that the NV "fan sites" seem to be reluctant to bench Pascal against OC 980TI's. The 980TI from what I've seen can run stable at 145X MHZ. Take a look at these numbers with the 980TI at 1430MHZ.

    Most gamers I know with 980TI's are waiting for the 1080TI to come out. But as I mentioned before these gaming purchase decisions are about what makes each person happy. No "wrong" move IMO as long as we do our research. Best move for me is likely a 1070 but I will probably still go with a 1080.

    Ive pre ordered the Asus ROG Strix 1080 the "founders" edition is only about 2% faster than my current 980ti the strix will give me the 20% boost over mine which will hopefully improve with driver updates , its difficult because the longer we hold on to out old tech the more money we lose on the second hand market , if i sell now i could get 400 quid if i wait who knows

    My nephews (too many of them ) are always waiting for my second hand hardware.

    I'm looking at this one. ONLY $885 CDN

    I bit of info coming out of Computex on the 1080 Asus Rog Strix. The feature to have your card control PCI fans is interesting.

    Here's a link to the video. Couple of, ah, "distractions" in the background. At least for me.

    Hmm, that is a pretty interesting feature. It would be nice to see EVGA implement it in their version of the 1080Ti.

    Congratulations to all the fine Windows 10 forum members. Why? Once I get this card (when ever that might be) you'll never have to hear me complain again about no SLI support in the latest game releases. . SLI? What's that? Could care less.
