Introduction & Overview
Since we published our GeForce GTX 1080 review, Nvidia overcame availability issues, and prices on the top-end gaming card settled into the range we were told to expect at launch. Today, you'll find GeForce GTX 1080 cards selling online between $600 (£750) and $770 (£900).
When Nvidia introduced GeForce GTX 1080, we only had the Founders Edition board (the company's reference design) in our possession. While its rear exhaust and a high-quality thermal solution turned heads, we knew boards from Nvidia's partners could bring lower prices, factory overclocking, and more cooling designs to the table.
All of these cards employ the same GP104 processor, so gaming performance takes a back seat to acoustic, electrical, and thermal readings. Each board is reviewed on its own page, where we dissect build quality, differentiating features, power consumption, clock rate analysis, cooling, and acoustic measurements in depth.
Including Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition, we have 10 cards compared in this roundup so far. We'll continue adding GeForce GTX 1080 cards to this roundup as we review them.
