    Re: Nvidia provides a look inside the GeForce RTX Founders Editions

    Well I bought a FE 1080, and I didn't regret it for a moment. I paid £599 for it, and when partner cards launched later, they were all selling for over that price, sometimes by hundreds...due to stock availability. Sure I could have waited 3 months and paid the same for a partner card, but for pretty much no benefit. My FE 1080 looks great in the case, is quiet in normal use (and when maxed out I have headphones on, so the top speed fan noise is irrelevant) and has been a rock solid performer for me, even overclocked.

    I don't regret putting in a pre order for another FE card this time around (from Nvidia direct). Sure the price has gone up and whilst I would not want to defend the price directly, Nvidia don't have any real competition at the top end of the market so they can pretty much charge what they like and they will still sell out...so why wouldn't they push things a bit.

    Looking forward to it tbh. Should get between 300 and 400 for my current card if i sell it a few days before the new ones arrive, and the new card will be here just before Tomb Raider and BF5 eat up my life for a month or two

    They look pretty again too this time around!

    They're making all the cards with an overclock. By definition this is not then an overclock but the standard clock. What they have likely done is find the highest stable clock, set the cards to run at that and then dropped the spec for the GPU by 90MHz to make it seem like you're getting more by going FE.

    Sorry but I'm really on a downer about Nvidia's practices right now. Something to do with price gouging.
