As you have probably noticed from our front page, today is the day we can see how the GTX 1080 Ti performs in reviewers systems.  The unfortunate news is that you can't buy one yet nor do we know when you will be able to spend the $699 it will cost to order one.  We can share the performance with you, once again NVIDIA's Ti model takes the top spot out performing even the $1200 TITAN X.  As for overclocking the reference model, as we have not had a chance to test any cards with third party cooler on them, [H]ard|OCP were able to increase the GPU frequency over 200MHz to 1967-1987MHz in game and push the memory to 12GHz, somewhat better than what Ryan was able to.  Check out their full review here, with many more just below.

"NVIDIA is launching the fastest video card it offers for gaming today in the new $699 GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. We will take this video card and test it against the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX TITAN X at 1440p and 4K resolutions to find out how it compares. Is it really faster than a $1200 GeForce GTX TITAN X Pascal?"

Able to spend the $699(Plus Retailer markup above MSRP) it will cost to order one! And with Nvidia products the available supply of parts will be maybe not so great! So Nvidia will not have to think about lowering its wholesale pricing any time soon. Nvidia will let the retailers set a higher price so it will take longer for the price to fall below MSRP and put presure on Nvidia to lower that wholesale price metric that Nvidia guards so well.

With the launch date still 2017/03/10, not 2017/03/09, the only people who expected their cards today are time travellers and the innumerate.
