Nvidia’s GTX 1080 Ti is on sale at its lowest price ever for Verge readersAugust 22, 2018
Following the debut of the GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards, B&H Photo is offering steep discounts on Nvidia’s high-end GeForce GTX 10-series cards exclusively to Verge readers. Limited quantities of EVGA’s GTX 1070 Ti, GTX 1080, and GTX 1080 Ti are available for the lowest prices that you’ll currently find.
For $399, the GTX 1070 Ti can easily power gaming on a 1440p monitor. At $50 more, the GTX 1080 is a more powerful match if you’re interested in 4K gaming, though it’s also more proficient at 1440p gaming with fast frame rates than the GTX 1070. At the top of Nvidia’s 10-series is the GTX 1080 Ti, which you can snag for $599 — an all-time low for a card with a three-year warranty.
As explained in our recent guide on how to pick out the right graphics card for you, Nvidia’s new graphics cards are said to be far more powerful than the likes of its GTX 1080 and 1080 Ti. A big part of that speed increase likely comes from the jump to GDDR6 video RAM. Built on Nvidia’s Turing architecture, the ray tracing ability native to the RTX series also puts them ahead, as it will aid in making games look more life-like as time goes on. However, these premium cards may not be for everyone, especially as the capable 10-series cards become cheaper.
If you’re in the market for a new GPU, but don’t want to totally cut out the possibility of upgrading to a 20-series graphics card, buying a card today qualifies you for EVGA’s Step-Up program. Should you decide that you want to upgrade to the RTX 2070, 2080, or 2080 Ti within 90 days following the purchase, you just send your registered GPU in, then pay the difference for the new gear, as well as shipping.
