GDC 2017: Nvidia Drops Price of GTX 1080

You can save a cool hundred bucks if you waited to upgrade your graphics card.

Tonight at Nvidia's presentation at the Game Developers Conference, the company announced a price drop for the GTX 1080. 

The graphics card had been set at a MSRP of $599, but with the GTX 1080 TI on the horizon, Nvidia lowered it to a cool $499. As expected, this was a harbinger of things to come, as only minutes later Nvidia took the wraps off the GTX 1080TI, complete with a price point ($699) and a shockingly close release date of next week. We had heard rumors that the TI could even be announced at GDC, but coming so soon is still a surprising development.

      Once the 1070 drops to a price around 350 € I'll go for it, cards still are way too expensive without serious competiton from AMD. Hopefully RX Vega will bring something to the table.

        But we will only know more about vega in june, will ship in september, will suck and nvidia will release next gen geforce by then. More like AMB, always more behind.

          Well I'll gladly pick up a 1070 or 1080 when everybody is jumping on the next-gen Nvidia card, if AMD offers no competition, then NVidia will just do as they please
