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.

          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
