I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to computer parts but are zotac cards considered to be in the lower end of the 1080 ti market?

I would look at it more from a design standpoint. the smaller two-fan card will be slightly louder and hotter, but apparently people are getting decent overclocks on this card.

Realistically, with your headphones on while gaming, I'm not concerned with a little fan noise. Others may disagree.

those cards are nicer if you want to have a smaller case. or have a laptop and want to get one of those thunderbolt case.
I personally had this card last year and it performed really well for vr. I just didn't like vr much so I sold it for what I paid after a few month.

Its one of the worst 1080 ti cards to buy. The bigger zotac, despite having one of the biggest coolers on the market, is one of the worst performing in terms of cooling.

The strix and MSI gaming are probably the two best 1080 ti cards. The MSI has a great PCB.

Great to see the prices coming down slightly. I'm personally waiting for a MSI, Asus or EVGA to come down in price before I buy. The Newegg store on eBay has some options so it gets close to this price point during the eBay 15% coupon.

This is interesting because I had bought a Zotac 1070 AMP! Edition from a fellow rfd member and while the temps are great, it was not cooling as good as I had expected (since the Zotac heatsink is huge, I was expecting it to run cooler).

After looking online for some answers and explanations, I then decided to reapply thermal paste (MX-2) on the card, which was pretty easy than I had thought (removing the spring tension screws and lifting up the hsf).

Surprisingly, the temps dramatically lowered. I was idling around 40c on 0% fan speed vs ~50c on 0% fan speed. The card also does around 65c on load @ 60ish% fan speed vs. 70c+ on load with 80% fan speed.

If you're not getting good performance on your cooling, you should try reapplying the thermal paste.

I feel sorry for the people that buy these cards, when DLSS takes off it will be compatible with pretty well every game engine since it's basically a flipping a switch from TAA. Not that it matters since RFD is all about getting the cheapest price possible.

It appears we've found the rare 20XX proponent here. A rare creature indeed.

What do you recommend, Alex? The affordable GTX 2080 for $1200 or the slightly more expensive 2080 TI for only $1700.

This is a very good price, but be mindful of the fact that $699USD, the MSRP of the new RTX 2080 card, works out to around $900CAD, so $120 more than this deal. I would personally pay $120 extra to have access to the new ray tracing and particularly the new DLSS feature. I have seen how good lots of AA looks at 4k resolution and I think DLSS could be a game changer. It will just require some patience to wait until we see the RTX 2080 cards selling for the $699USD MSRP. The new China Trump tariffs are another wild card to consider.

It's fine, not the best, and not terrible. People who actually own this product don't hate it, but as I previously stated, it will get slightly hotter and louder.

As for warranty, no idea.

Wasn't this $699 CAD after MIR @ Mike's last weekend?
I guess the price increased after the 20xx's lineup was reviewed.

You're thinking of the grand opening event in Hamilton. If you're wondering, it was a terrible waste of time, there were only 5 or 6 1080TI units.

It's too early to tell but the next gen is probably going to be better, again too early to tell, if you need something now this is a great price on a proven fast card.

Oh wow, a whooping $20 in rebates!
I can take or leave the MIR, it's the $799 price that's up to $100 less than the next 1080TI.

But hey, it's more fun to be obtuse.

i do not think the msrp of $699 will ever come to 2080 card. maybe from nvidia but not from third party. yes $699 USD = $900 CAD but you are forgetting taxes depending on province lived in. in ontario $900 CAD will still equal to over $1000 and that is if they sell for $699 MSRP, which i doubt. good brands like evga will not sell for $699 USD. that is why the prices are so high. the prices are going to be all over the place. i am in 4K and i think its better to have the 1080ti then buy 2080 or 2080ti and wait for next generation. early adopt is a no go. $1100 for 2080 and $1600-1700 for Ti. i dont know how the prices wil come down. you think $1600-1700 2080ti will drop to $1200, $1100? idk if you have a 1080ti or need a card bad i would say get this one for now if you game high res monitors or tvs.
