GTX 1080 price drop...when ?
show user profile  FX
I'm wanting to grab a couple of 1080's but not at £650 a pop, when do these so called OEM versions appear ?
Prior to release they were listed as £650 for the founders edition and £450 for the OEM version, any way to predict these things ?

Some say when Nvidia releases a GTX1080 Ti, others say when AMD releases Radeon Vega cards.

"Some rumors suggest the GTX 1080 Ti could be announced at Nvidia’s CES keynote in January, while others say Nvidia plans to keep the card in its back pocket as an ace in the hole against the Radeon “Vega” cards AMD will roll out sometime in the first half of 2017."

We have plenty of OEM versions available at our distributor, so that is not the issue.
c0 is probably right about the 1080Ti or Vega card, showing up to offer it some actual competition.

Terribly boring signature.

Yup, that's pretty much what I've read, sometime early 2017 before we find out...don't know if I can wait that long...always being held to bloody ransom.

@Nik get in the queue :p

Here, in the eastern europe, older generations of graphics cards don't get cheaper when the new ones come out. Non reference 1080 is around 700$ here and probably will stay at this price.

It can if you bought shares :p

Now £422.98...I think I need to turn off this Amacon price tracker..these moves aren't significant enough, I didn't realise how much these prices moved around.

So if a person were wanting to purchase a few of these would it be best to wait for "aftermarket" versions of the card to come out by vendors like EVGA or even wait until the next internal manufacturing iteration of the card is put into place (just in case there is something buggy with the card as it stands now)?

I have a buyer lined up for my current 1080 for next week and I'm thinking about upgrading to the TI version for GPU rendering. 35% performance increase? Absolutely.

Aftermarket cards usually have a bit better cooling solutions, but it's on a case by case basis. The card's efficiency compared with a reference version is usually available on day of release. Nvidia decided to call their reference line up a "founders edition" with the 1080\1070 cards, and ask extra for it. I'd say stay away from the reference cards or those that use blower style coolers.

"1080 is slashed down to $499"

Somebody needs to tell Amazon ;) I did see one for £450, but the rest are still £600+

Looks like it will take a while.

I'm set on the ASUS STRIX model, always a tad more expensive than the average but a solid card with great cooling.
