rumor has it GTX 1080TI Founders Edition will be an nVidia exclusive

I'm saying that it will probably sell worse as a result of only being available in Nvidias store at launch as opposed to retail stores. I say this because by the time AIB partners release their custom cards we will have Vega at our doorstep.

as I said, it can't sell worse as the only manufacturer for Founders Edition is nVidia

you can't sell cards you don't have

 

 

ps: that's the old design

even nVIdia's own product page for Titan X doesn't list it as a GeForce product anymore - Titan X is a big identity crisis for nVidia

as for double precision, not even Quadro cards has it anymore, only Teslas

I think it will hurt sales. Especially now that the consumer is knowledgable with the reference 1080/70/60 cards which are known for not performing very good, being loud and hot and having sub-par power delivery. That's going to linger on in people's minds when they see a 1080Ti can only be bought from nVidia.

The point here is more that people won't necessarily wait for custom 1080ti to come out and then buy the FE edition, and therefore giving all their money to nvidia.

Well. That's just stupid.

You have to consider that Founders Edition cards being sold by Nvidia only makes them harder to obtain, delays their launch since you will have to wait for shipping, and whilst they already carry a premium over custom cards (for God knows what reason) they will cost even more with added shipping. Who would purchase these when all up these Founders Edition cards will only arrive perhaps a few days before custom cards land on store shelves? Furthermore you have the problem of the 1080ti launch being artificially pushed closer to the Vega launch by this Founders Edition tactic which makes a couple more weeks of waiting to make an informed purchase a more compelling choice. This will lower the sales of Founders Edition cards because they will be harder to get and custom cards due to them arriving too late, with the potential of needing a price cut when Vega launches.

Funny that. You might want to look up a little.

and you still ignore the fact that it doesn't say GeForce in the Titan X name

nVidia themselves market this card as compute card whenever they can

I'm not sure what you're trying to convince me of here. The card is a GeForce product in every way but the name (used to be called a GeForce GTX Titan X). Looking through the support section, drivers, store and even the GeForce GTX SLI HB bridge you'll find it bundled with the GeForce products. My opinion is that the price puts it well into Quadro territory and the only way to justify that is by not calling it a GeForce card. It also helps that GTX Titan X is a much more pleasant sounding name.

 

I just hope they get their naming scheme sorted out so we don't end up with a 3rd Titan X. Even a change from GeForce GTX 1080 to GeForce 1080 as a whole for their products would be nice since it's not so unnecessarily long.

That would be company suicide. I cannot see them doing something like that. It's one thing with TITAN, but with the flagship GeForce card? Not gonna happen.

Arrogance and Nvidia stinks of it.

There has never been an AIB Titan period to my knowledge.

Closest was a Gigabyte that came with a WF3 cooler in the box. ref board and ref cooler.

So I'm in teh market to upgrade my Maxwell X's to a set of 1080Ti's.  The founder's vs. custom is a really tough decision, because on teh one hand waterblocks are aplenty for standard reference cards, the custom cards give a lot better potential overall but waterblocks are a bitch to find and have dogshit resale value.

 

TBH I'll probably wait until some benchmarks come out to show how much potential the silicon has for overclocking.  If it's decent where a custom PCB might make a difference, I'll probably go that route.

I would just get Founders Edition. Custom cards aren't any better as Pascal tops out around ~ 2100MHz. If you're using water blocks, and the choice is simply the reference cards.

AIB needs to stop acting like toddlers with tamper tantrum, just so they can sell the cards on launch day by slapping their stupid stickers on it!  I still remember a while back, a GTX270 or 280, with some AIB's stupid character on it. Then I noticed a bit of the sticker was peeling off. I peeled that ugly sticker off and under was the original Nvidia logo, etched into the plastic shroud. 1000x nicer than stupid AIB sticker.

Eh, If I were in the market, I'd just wait for custom cards.  The Founder's Editions cards are ugly as hell.


Currently focusing on my video game collection.  Here's what I got so far.  

Keep in mind I'm still grabbing multiplatform games on PC, unless they happen to be cheaper on PS4 or Switch (such as RDR2 as of right now)

 

Currently Playing:  

  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Switch
  • Super Mario Maker 2 - Switch

Games Beaten:

  • God of War - PS4
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Switch

(will be reset at the beginning of each month)

Put on hold:

  • Splatoon 2 - Switch

 

How many games I'm needing:

  • DS: 82
  • Wii: 38
  • 360/PS3: 84
  • 3DS: 60
  • Wii U: 6
  • PS Vita: 34
  • PS4: 20
  • Switch: 16

Nvidia should know that it would be company suicide-the only reason they ended up with 3DFX was because they decided that they'd be the only ones manufacturing video cards with the GPU

I knew somebody would say that!

But still, STB's manufacturing in Mexico wasn't as good compared to ones in Asia. Most of the OEMs went to Nvidia as a result of 3dfx decision to only allow STB to make GPUs.

My STB Voodoo2 12MB brought the memories back.

AIB's sales of FE have always been poor and a bit of a loss leader, Have heard that there will be no FE cards from AIB partners and that they will come 1/2 week later AIB custom cards to launch 2/3 cards each


Regarding the reason why Nvidia doesn't sell Titan X pascal through AIBs is nothing to do with coolers. It destroyed NV sales in Quadro, lots of SI partners switched to them during Maxwell
