I'm DISGUSTED that this $750 video card has jumped to $1200 in the last few days just as I was getting the money saved up to add one to my build. I refuse to be a victim of this price gouging greed. I'm sick of these companies pulling this limited stock crap to raise the prices to insane levels. Same thing with Intel and the 8700k. It's DISGUSTING

If you click the Newegg link it shows a price of $799. I don't know why Tom's is reporting a $1,200 price tag.

These companies are ridiculous with this limiting third stock crap just to raise the prices. Same thing with the Intel 8700k.

I see the confusion.

There are 4 versions of the card.

ASUS ROG Poseidon
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16814126202
$859

ASUS ROG GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12 STRIX - Not Overclocked
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16814126187
$759

ASUS ROG GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12 STRIX - Overclocked
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16814126186
$1199

ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12 - Blower-cooled design
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=9SIA0AJ6E80374
$1299

You can still buy the card for $759 as long as you don't go for the water cooled, overclocked or rear exhaust models.

Less complaining, More research

I've had this exact card on my part list on PC partpicker for the last 5 months or so. Been saving up for it. It has been 750-800 for the OC version. In the last 48 hours that has jumped up to over a grand. For the exact same card. I know there are slower ones available, this exact card has jumped up. Now I have to wait for it to come back down.

I own this card.

I have used this card for games daily since it came out last April. It is as fast as Tom's Hardware says it is.

Check out my build:
https://pcpartpicker.com/b/NTCbt6


In August, the card started freezing immediately after I launched Dragon Age: Inquisition or The Division. Asus RMA'ed the card, and the new card works even better.
It is now running 1708 MHz GPU and 11100 MHz VRAM at 120% power target, with a slightly more aggressive fan curve than default. GPU boost does the rest auto-magically.

Crazy that reviews for the ti are still coming out. Really stupid how much more the overclocked cards are. Though not as bad as the ads on this site.

Because I compared 14 different 1080 Ti cards under the same conditions with a frozen system to see the differences between all this samples. It is not my fault, that AMD hold back the Vega a whole year... :)

BTW:
Just waiting for a shipment from Asia, hanging in a German customs office. The reason is funny, because this stupid nitpickers are not able to google the price for this cards to pay tax. They not belive the total amount in the invoice, But how to google a price for cards that are not on the market yet? :D

One of them is a custom Vega, small series sample direct from the factory - mass production is waiting for AMD ;)

For VEGA 56/64 use another site like TECHPOWERUP to see comparisons in general. You can still easily extrapolate the relative performance, though chances are if looking at a GTX1080Ti review of multiple 1080Ti's you care which one of those is best, not VEGA.

I might be picking nits here but is it so hard to click the button for verifying the PCI Express connection? I mean the GPU-Z screenshot shows the card at 8x and 1.1 PCIE. Just saying.

Good point, but at the end a GPU-Z issue (especially in idle). I'm sure, that I've not tested this card with an old mainboard from 2006 and a NV610 chipset :D

No, you don't "have to" wait. Look at another Asus model or another brand. I went with the Gigabyte Aorus 1080 Ti Xtreme and it has a few advantages over this card.
Higher factory clockspeeds (OC mode):
Core clock 1632 vs 1569
Boost 1746 vs 1683
Memory 1404 vs 1376
Bandwidth 516.4 vs 484.4

Longer warranty (with registration- takes 5 minutes)
4 years vs 3

No complaints about fan noise

This Asus isn't the only 1080 Ti on the planet. In fact, it's really nothing special. The Xtreme is currently $799- well worth a little extra for an additional year of warranty, quieter fans and slightly faster performance.

After having bought multiple oc'd cards over the years, the prices are getting stupid. And the simple truth? Is 200-300$ worth an extra 10 fps?
