Availability: In stock

Quick Overview

The Founders Edition of the GTX 1080 is different from the other models in several ways. However, it does not improve your frame rate performance. Primarily, this is the card that was previously referred to as "reference design". This means it is nvidia through and through. The GPU is at stock nvidia speeds, the PCB is totally nvidia design as is the cooler.

However, although it is reference, this card has several improvements over some of the board partner designs. It has an improved cooler, better power circuitry components, physically stronger materials and it will be available throughout the life the GTX 1080.

Think of it like a Bentley or Rolls Royce, not the fastest (although still blisteringly quick), but certainly the highest quality.

First and foremost the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition is a graphics card designed and built by NVIDIA engineers, who have hundreds of years of collective experience. They’ve designed and built dozens of graphics cards over multiple generations, and pioneered the move away from plastic shrouds with the launch of the stunning GeForce GTX 690.

They’re intimately familiar with every aspect of the hardware and software, and have used their knowledge and skill to craft the GeForce GTX 1080, the best graphics card we’ve ever made. It’s blazing fast, super cool, incredibly efficient, heavily overclockable, and whisper quiet.

Using premium materials and components, including a die-cast, tessellated aluminum body and low-profile, modifiable backplate, the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition is machine finished and heat treated for strength, durability, and rigidity.
