GeForce GTX 1080 Pricing 2/28/17 آ– Price drop to $499

NVIDIA has a redesigned vapor chamber cooler that is being used on the GTX 1080 Ti and it cools better and allows the card to run cooler than the one designed for the GeForce GTX 1080. NVIDIA says that the doubled the cooling area on the vapor chamber GeForce GTX 1080 Ti If the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti were both running at 220W with their perspective coolers, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti would run 5C cooler and 2.5dB quieter thanks to the improvements.''

''There will be overclocked versions of the GeForce GTX 1080 8GB coming with 11 GBPS GDDR5X memory as well as a GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 video card with faster 9 GBPS GDDR5 memory coming soon.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition will launch first and then AIC cards will launch at a later date. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will be available from the AICs at the MSRP.

We now have a card in our hand and are moving forward with the review.
