NVIDIA GTX 1080 Founders Edition Explained

What is the difference between Nvidia GTX 1080 / 1070 Founders Edition and the reference model? Many people believed the GTX 1080 would launch at $599, but the reference cards from Nvidia, now called the “Founders Edition” is actually going to be retailing for $700. While board partners like EVGA, MSI, Asus & Gigabyte will be able to charge as low as $599 at release date for their cards. What the actual launch prices are still remains to be seen.

    Wait so…

    If the 700$ founders edition is what we think is the reference card today, then what does that make the 600$ card? A sub-reference card lol?

    This maybe a noob question, but I would honestly appreciate an answer from Joker:
    What is the difference between the various founders edition cards?
    e.g.: EVGA GTX 1080 founders edition and ASUS GTX 1080 founders edition cost different amounts. Why would I pay more for one or the other?

    Is it a mistake to buy a reference card, the GTX 1080 founder's edition?

    so many people have this same thing all confused ,…..then when i try to explain to them what the founders edition is …they say im full of shit …lmao….its true there is only one founders edition ….and it is in fact …."Reference" being replaced by "Founders"….there is not …Not a normal 1080 and a overclocked 1080 founders edition …… lmao….like some people i know seems to think this……anything after the Founders Edition 1080 that is going to be overclocked or supped up will be made by Nvidia's board partners … msi. asus, evga ,……..NVidia has made one 1080 them selves and it is the Founders Edition…. the name change makes perfect sense to me ….after all Nvidia is the founder of the card ……

    Hey Joker thx for the heads up. Ive just sold my GTX 980. So im up for the 1080 bad boy. But because of your video. Im thinking about NOT getting the founders edition if theres no benefits from getting that anyway. I really, REALLY thought that card would have maybe a higher boost clock, better cooling or some sorts of reason to be that more expensive. But lets see how much its gonna cost here in Denmark, Europe. Cant wait to get my hands on it.. And play the last map, The Well in DOOM… Its pretty hard to complete on a Intel HD 3000 Onboard gfx from Asus. 😀 (sold my GTX 980 when i was 90% Through my favorite game) 😀

    I love reference cards, they look smooth and professional. The other brands always look like a thrown together piece of crap.

    I'll wait for Gigabyte, or Evga's cards, they are always clocked higher and just seems like more bang for your buck. Unless as he mentioned you need the reference style for your build.

    I just hope the biggest difference is the bios… So if I can get the cheaper one and then flash the more expensive bios, might become exactly like the expensive model, like it happen on the past with different cards…

    But GTX 1080 is definitely too expensive for me.

    GTX 1070 is more in my price range, but sadly I got disappointed by the fact that they are still trying to sell old technology on this card (I mean the GDDR5). And who knows if next year tablets and smartphones wont also come with GDDR5X and I just couldnt live with the fact I would have paid a lot for the 1070 to have older technology than a next year tabletsmartphone (though I know they are WAY slower and more expensive).

    I will wait for AMD's cards too, I specially want to see if they will add HBM2 memory in them so I can finally upgrade my GTX570 (Hell how things are going I might even try buying a used GTX 950, skip this generation and wait for next coming Nvidias GPUs that will probably already bring HBM…).

    That or even make a whole new PC when VOLTA comes out, specially if intel goes 8 cores mainstream for lower prices (got disappointed with intel by announcing 4 core cpus coming again, jeez… most best smartphones are all 8 cores for a while already…).

    Founder's Edition is just glorified original card with extra prize!……… Give me two……

    I believe the cooler on the founders edition is a bit difference and allows for a higher overclock.

    Idc how much they sell for. I just care when the 1080 customs come out. I am thinking about getting founders, because I'm getting more into cooling. But I reeeeaaaaaallly like the Zotac's LED's =P #choosingishard #soiswaiting
