expired Inno3d GeForce GTX 1080 X2 8GB - $599 + Shipping @ PC Case Gear

620

Good price for a 1080, reviews on this card are good, cooler is highly rated. Apparently low noise as well.

Prices are likely to drop on the 20XX release in a week or so but for anyone thinking of pulling the trigger on a new card this is a pretty sweet deal.

People on reddit saying 2000Mhz+ overclocks are possible

    So tempting! Or do I wait a little longer for a better deal…

    • +1 vote

      There will always be a better deal if you wait a little longer.

      It's like the the tortoise and Achilles paradox… but actually real.

        Better to wait a little bit and see what the reputable reviewers say about the RTX2080 Ti, RTX2080, and the RTX2070.

        That way we can make a more informed Price:Performance decision.

        The deals will come later again, no rush.

      •  

        So you are saying.. wait next week and see if there is a better deal on the 1080 series depending on how the 20XX performs?
        i use a 1440p g sync monitor and my graphic card is the bottle and i just want something at this price point to play mainstream games or just mmos. i just want to spend something that is super powerful, and so i am thinking if i should just go and buy this.

  •  

    Tempting. The next best price is the MSI Armor 1080 from Futu ($638.40) but the reviews on amazon say the cooler is pretty awful / inadequate. Wonder how the Inno3d fairs.

    •  

      Happy with mine.

      I paid $636 October last year.

      I play 2560x1600 @ 60FPS. I don't actively monitor temps but I never hear it working hard.

      Actually, kinda wish I went with AMD for freesync.

        Never ever wish that. Both times I went and nothing but compatibility issues. Go with NVIDIA no issues ever.

          When was this, in 2002 on your Radeon 9700?

          I just put an RX570 in my lounge room PC (I have nvidia in my main rig) and I gotta say the AMD drivers + software are excellent.

          I've used AMD graphics cards since 2012 and never had any issue, down-voting because it's simply not true.

          @irev1: That is fair enough. I was just saying from my experience of owning AMD cards on 2 occasions, I encountered many compatibility issues with graphics on some games.

      •  

        Still using my Dell U3011. RX470 just can't do 2560x1600.

        Do I grab a 1080 now or wait for Cyberpunk 2077 and buy whatever GPU is the big Boi then?

      • +1 vote

        I went with the RX580 purely because of freesync. Its a shame Nvidia are greedy bastards and charge for G-sync as nivida have the better cards. And 'Rochie' i have never had 1 issue with freesync compatability….?

  •  

    Yeah - 2000Mhz OC is easily possible for most 1080 i think. my Gigabyte G1 reached 2075Mhz stress tested for 24 hours and it's been known to not have a lot of headroom for OC compared to EVGA and the likes.

    Don't buy yet wait till the 2080ti's come and snap up a 1080ti on gumtree / ebay for a bargain :)

    • +5 votes

      Normally that works well, but this generation is going to be only a small uptick in performance unless you care about raytracing for some reason, so the 1080tis won't be getting sold off en masse to push the prices down. Worked great for getting a 980ti after Pascal launched though.

      •  

        Um, not according to nVidia. When a game supports DLSS, that game can take advantage of the tensor cores so do anti-aliasing instead of the traditional TAA (Temporal Anti-Aliasing). nVidia is quoting 2X boost in Final Fantasy XV and ARK: Survival Evolved (@4K) and 1.75X boost for PUBG and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

        We'll need to wait and see whether that's just pure marketing hype or real.

          according to nVidia

          According to a corporate marketing team? There's companies that say standing on a vibrating mat for 20 minutes a day will turn you into a shredded model like in their ads.

          nVidia's graphs intentionally obfuscate much of the relevant information and their claims are reliant on highly specific, unrealistic scenarios that are rarely if ever replicated in real use cases.

          We'll need to wait and see whether that's just pure marketing hype or real.

          No, you don't need to wait to know that answer haha.

          @Smashed Avo:

          You ever find it odd how any comments on Ozbargain that point out it's probably not worth upgrading to the latest and greatest or that the new model of something has very minor improvements over the last gets neg'd and the guy who lists marketing terms as a positive gets all the thumbs up?

          Is it actually the opinion of people here or is this place quietly full of shills?

        •  

          @Concerned:

          Because it's not pure marketing in this case. This is a respectable technology company and details of architectural improvements / increase in cores now released are quite reliable, and estimated performance boost is inline with their just released benchmarks:

          https://www.reddit.com/r/hardware/comments/9fuxex/nvidia_gef...

          People are complaining because they think it's too expensive, and they're right it is expensive, but they start to make all sorts of unfounded rumors.

          @Concerned: it's more likely to be nvidia share holders here on OzBargain and general fanboys.

          Apparently Nvidia are a respected company who we can believe, even though they lied and said to buy 10xx cards because new cards won't be out for a long time.

          The same respected technology company who setup the gpp to bully AIB partners and lock out competition from AMD.

          However, the comment you're replying you is not bad and he makes a good point about waiting from benchmarks.

          What?

          None of that is relevant to my comment. Whether FPS per dollar reigns supreme(used 1080ti) or warranty and less miles on the odometer(new 1080) matters comes down to a largely subjective personal choice.

          I addressed your statement "Don't buy yet wait till the 2080ti's come" and explained how the RTX launch is realistically not going to force down Pascal prices in the way that previous generations have historically.

        •  

          @Smashed Avo: So you believe 2080Ti and 2080 won't push down the price of 1080Ti? You know this how? We are not talking about months of wait. They will be released soon.

          Isn't this retailer clearing its stock? Honestly, now that 2080 and 2080Ti are announced, it will require deep discount for me to even consider a 1080/1080Ti.

          Do you own a 1080 or 1080Ti currently?

        • +1 vote

          Those are all ex-mining cards vs brand new here.

        •  

          @Smashed Avo: With embargo now lifted, sites and videos now start talking about RTX2080. It does have a number of enhancements:

          • Hardware Ray tracing improvements
          • DLSS
          • Hardware tone mapping for HDR
          • Adaptive shading support, Mesh Shading
          • Turing SM can do concurrent FP & INT execution datapaths.

          So, now we know why nVidia put a lot of HDR benchmark comparison in their charts showing improvement (obviously, the hardware tone mapping feature would help HDR games). If you don't care about HDR gaming, then the performance improvement won't be as good.

          We'll need to wait for actual benchmark numbers.

        Normally thats true but apparently there is hundreds of thousands of 10 series GPU which are overstocked because of the crypto crash.

        •  

          That was as of April… hence the price drops.

          I'd suggest the bulk of the 1060, 1070 and 1080 series cards have largely been sold.

          Don't expect many outlets to offer deep discounts, such as this lukewarm pricing.

        •  

          We never mined on GTX1080's fwiw

        •  

          @jasswolf:

          What do you think will happen when the 20xx series released and they have an overstock of 10 series?

          Also it was in June not April and the forecasts they had on sales were way off due to the crypto crash.

        •  

          @kasp: it was reported in June, but the chips were shipped in March.

          Subsequently there were sales in May-August, including some AU sales in June/July.

          The board partners begged for more stock in Jan & Feb, and eventually NVIDIA yielded after wanting to avoid the crypto market. They tried to return the chips when the floor dropped out of the market, but NVIDIA enforced their contracts and we got Turing 3-5 months late instead.

          1050s aside, the sales appear to be over, and presumably the bulk of the remaining stock will go into laptops.

      I highly doubt people will fall for the BS prices. If anything there will be more demand for last gen and prices will go up.

      • +2 votes

        More demand for last gen? Hard to believe, considered people aren't finding this price good. 1080/1080Ti is old already and nVidia really milked consumers long enough for these (with AMD not competitive enough).

        We'll need to wait and see how AMD respond too. Then, there will be 2070 (and 2060 and 2050 later on). If you have an HDR setup or you plan to go into HDR gaming, it no longer makes sense to pick 1080/1080Ti. Why wouldn't you want hardware tone mapping support?

        •  

          They don't find it good because they still have hope that RTX will be worth the money and are waiting for real world tests. Reports say navi will be successor to Polaris, so there's no 'response' there from AMD if it's the same as Polaris GPUs. I'll be perfectly happy with AMD releasing a 2019 alternative of an RX480.
          HDR? dude. Who has a HDR display? they cost so much. You do realise we are talking about gamers here not heavy video editors who are likely the ones to care.
          Used 10 series is the way to go but I really wouldn't count on new 10 series to get that much cheaper.

        •  

          @Lolno234: It's crazy that the card I bought 18 months ago is costing 60% more still.

          There was a decent OZB 27 inch HDR 4K LCD deal posted ($680). Honestly, if you get 1080/1080Ti and you are not interested in 4K, then why spend the money to get it? If you only care about 1080p gaming, there are many more cost effective solutions. Navi - people are guessing it will have ray tracing hardware support.

          Honestly, with AUD being weak and cost of living going up, I don't get why people would wish for old graphics card prices to stay the same. Really want PC gaming to be more affordable.

          HDR - phones have them now, consoles/TVs also support them now. If you were to buy a graphics card for 4K gaming now, is it really wise to ignore HDR?

    Stocks are already dwindling on 1000 series cards. I wouldn't expect them to go much lower brand new than they are already. The clearance has more or less already happened.

      lol what?
      There are hundreds of thousands of them. Nvidia got burned by the crypto crash hard. SO unless they are going to throw all the excess in the bin there will be a massive surplus of 10 series cards.

      Hell the price crash before the new cards are released already suggests that.

      • -2 votes

        hahaha lol

        no way nVidia will throw them in the bin XD

        Even if they are garbage they'll think of ways to sell them. (They've pretty much already shoved the over stockpiles down the AIB partners' throat, using the RTX cards as leverage.)

        MSY marked 1080 and 1080Ti EOL in July and clearance priced them all the way back then, and haven't received any shipments since. Almost out of stock Aus wide, bar 1 MSI SKU.

        They're just one company, but they're arguably the biggest and I'd say if they could get more stock in; they would be…

        • +1 vote

          It's more 1080 and 1080Ti are not selling that well. Thus, stocking them (especially now that 2080 series are announced) are unwise.

          There are no reasons for 1080 to become very popular all of the sudden (unless there is a fire sale). It's been around for a long time and Vega 64 is an alternative. Late 2018 / early 2019 games will be pushing the hardware more.

          If you truly believe 1000 series cards won't drop in price, then why don't you buy some of these?

    •  

      Stocks are not dwindling yet - they had an oversupply, 2070 is a month away and 2060 isn't even announced yet.

    Thanks OP, was waiting for a good price to buy in for my mining rig

      Why would you ever buy a GPU to mine instead of an ASIC?

      • +4 votes

        It depends on the currency you're mining, projections of said currency market value and how long you plan to keep the hardware before onselling.

        ASICs definitely have a place, but GPU mining will periodically spike in profitability like it or not.

  •  

    when i buy things, i like to future proof myself for a while, therfore im thinking of getting a 1080ti if/when prices drop soon. is this overkill for 1080p only gaming?

    •  

      At 1080P an RX580 would be good enough to play Ultra settings on most games at 60fps.

      1070/Vega 56 etc are really only needed for Ultra settings at 1440p.

      Can get the Vega 56 for $535 delivered at the moment which is a pretty good deal https://ebay.us/gr02T8 (use POLLEN for 20% off)

      • UPDATE no you can't any more because someone just bought the last 7 I'm guessing for a mining rig yesterday lol
    •  

      For 1080p gaming you're probably better off buying a cheaper card now and then upgrading again in a few years.

      You'll get more value in the long run

      •  

        ive currently got a gtx 970 (i5 8600k) which runs most games at near maximum settings, so im in no rush to upgrade. i dont think i will need/justify the cost of the upcoming 2xxx series card, however, if the 1080/1080ti's drop in price then i might consider!
