    Just ordered https://www.overclockers.co.uk/gigab...gx-188-gi.html

    Feels good not having to pay VAT tbh

    (went for this one because it's the cheapest non-itx 1070 and they all overclock to roughly the same point anyway)

    It is a bit weird that my 1070 is now 100 pound more expensive than when I bought it.

    Miners and brexit tbh

    (also the GTX 1070 is now awful from a price/performance standpoint)

    Why is that? They're about 33% more expensive than the 1060's (which aren't in stock anyway) and about the same price as the RX 56 (which is in stock but only with reference design cards, so meh.)

    Looking at it from the other end, a GTX 1080 can be had for around £50 more (or around 11% more) and performs around 20-25% better. Hell even £100 still leaves you doing pretty well in a price/performance way.

    It's not like the GTX 1070 is a bad card, because it's really not, it's just that prices are all fucked because various reasons.

    I remember the last gen when x70s were £250-300 and x80s were £350-400. That made so much more sense.

    If that's the case I see where you're coming from. I'm seeing 25% differences in the Swedish shops which felt a nit more significant.

    Anyhoo... An interesting tidbit I picked up "somewhere", Vega apparantly already have infinity fabric tech in it.

    Given how volatile prices are now I think the 1070's value proposition changes almost day to day. When I bought my 1070 a few weeks back I paid £350 for it and 1080s were selling for £480+, and I just didn't see how the 1080 was worth another £130. Right now the gap is around £100 at most retailers, which is still a bit too much.

    Yes, it does. There isn't much use for it in desktop Vega (outside possibly some large GPU compute installations) but the upcoming Raven Ridge APU uses Infinity Fabric to tie the Zen cores and Vega iGPU together.

    I'm waiting for some of those AIB V56/64 cards tbh.
    A significant performance jump and quieter card than my Nano would be a nice upgrade.

    Too bad Canadian pricing is fucking bananas

    Picked up another RX 560 for cheaper than the last one. Heck, at these prices, it might be worth buying more for crypto.

    I have 2xU2412M dell monitors and an i5 7600. I was considering getting a gtx 1080ti, but I heard I might get bottlenecked by the CPU. I am extremly unlikely to upgrade the monitors and the CPU is a very recent purchase.

    Should I get the 1080ti or go for the 1070 instead?

    Considering;

    GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti $770

    ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 AMP! Extreme $470

    GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce GTX 1070 $500

    1070, those monitors are a bit over 1080p and 60hz so you literally won't use most of the 1080ti

    What about the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 it's price is almost the same as the 1070 @ $550. Someone was telling me the 1080 has been discontinued now that the 1080ti has come out. Is that true? couldn't find any info on that.

    I have the 1070 variant of that card currently and it works perfectly, but other people have had issues with Gigabtytes RMA process

    I'm having my aunt bring the card to India, so i need something that will involve 0 RMA'ing. Since international warranty will be non-existent.

    Edit: I am thinking of ordering this version - GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 AORUS 8GB - $580. Anybody with any recommendations before I bite the bullet?

    Another option would be ASUS ROG GeForce GTX 1080 STRIX

    Get an EVGA, they honour international warranties.
