Just got a notification from NewEgg. They're carrying the Strix 2080TI now. Out of stock, of course, but this is the first U.S. seller I've seen. Prices this morning, $1319-1349.
sure are a lot of reports of these cards going bad.
Mostly FE cards, there have been some third party cards as well but the FE seems to be the standout card in that respect.
Supposedly down to the micron gddr6 not handling the frequency well. Seen a couple of people say clocking it down 50-100mhz fixes the issues. Not ideal though.
would putting it under water make the FE cards behave? I know that FE cards tend to be hotter than third parties. At least, my 1080 ti is pegged at 84 c
Just a heads up that Zotac isn't paying for shipping in an RMA scenario, apparently.
You are correct, that should have been called out. I think we did in the preview articles. But yeah, we missed it and it is pretty snazzy if you need it, and totally out of the way if you don't.I'd hope you would call more attention to the "FanConnect" feature which is unfortunately found only on Asus ROG cards. This is just a PWM fan header which permits slaving case fans to that of the GPU. This is very important in coordinating the process of getting heat off the card and out of the enclosure. As simple as it is, Asus seems to be the only one bothering. Some years ago I suggested it to a number of AIB makers, with no response. And reviewers never pay attention to it, presumably because they test open-bench.
Let's maybe get some love for this. It's a lot more important than RGBling and should be standard on enthusiast cards - not rare.
The price of this card just make me lose interest - other than as a novelty. My 1080ti is giving me a great 4K experience, and if a game is too demanding, I just switch over to my 1440p 144Hz G-sync monitor for some buttery smoothness.
I feel for you guys, wow that's some real world class milking.Seen a few of these in stock today at a uk retailer, a fucking SNIP at £1500..or $1950. Asus tax +"supply and demand"+retailer gouging = fuck that shit.
Good luck buying one of these strix cards, i've yet to see them in stock at any retailer. This and the msi trio seem virtually MIA, a few people somehow have them but not many. Whereas palit, inno3d and zotac are like flies on a big freshly laid pile of shit....plentiful
I woke up at 345am on Nov. 1 and just happened to check Nowinstock and it showed this card in stock at Newegg. I bought one and it will be here in a few more days but when I checked Nowinstock after I made the purchase it was no longer in stock. I don't know how many Newegg had, but it couldn't have been many, I would hope I didn't get the ONLY one.
Some days I leave NowInStock up on a monitor for a few hours or check in thru out the day for laughs. Great resource but hilarious to look at the recent stock histrory or to see things available and then blink and they're gone.
I think they’ve all but given up on the high end and will offer midrange perf like 1080 or so levels. Midrange cards I read add more to the bottom line since they sell so many of them and they’re cheaper to make.Still think I am going to wait and see what AMD comes out with before upgrading...I keep hearing reports of 2080ti cards failing at a pretty high rate...not sure if this is just "Founders" cards or if others are affected, but will wait to see how it all shakes out.

Argh! Fucked a bit up here, guys... Finally found it as incoming stock here and quickly pulled the trigger. Got the track and trace and found out I have bought the A11G version, not the O11G version so lower boost clock. I think I will keep it though as it is impossible to get a 2080 Ti with top notch cooling here which is really important to me. And I suppose I can still win in the silicon lottery, right?
Thanks for the reminder. I had read and forgotten about that detail with the binned chips. As I'm saving again for the strix it'll be helpful.
Just managed to order one thru Newegg. Looking forward to it and hoping the the Strix's design sets it apart the the FE/reference board failures. Still a roll of the dice but hoping.
