If you’re hoping to snag a cut-price GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, you’d best do it quickly. Reports are circulating that Nvidia’s previous-gen flagship is no longer in production, causing stocks to dry up on store shelves. And this time, it’s probably not the cryptocurrency miners.
GamersNexus says multiple industry sources have spoken to it about constrained supplies of the GeForce GTX 1080 ti. Both the Founders Editions and AIB partners’ models of the GTX 1080 Ti are now in short supply. It’s looking fairly likely that retailers won’t be able to stock up again either; once they’re gone, they’re gone.
For Nvidia, the benefit of this prove is pretty obvious. With Team Green dominating the high-end GPU market, its only competition is itself. In the case of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, it’s still an attractive proposition when stacked up against the GeForce RTX 2080. Too attractive, probably, and it’s likely putting a dent in the sales of the GeForce RTX 20 series graphics cards.
Whipping the GTX 1080 Ti out of the system solves this problem in one swoop. To be honest, we’re expecting the GeForce GTX 1080 to follow in its footsteps shortly, competing as it does with the RTX 2070.
However, poking around a few storefronts in the UK, I see no such stock shortage just yet. There appear to be ample supplies of new GTX 1080 Ti GPUs on the likes of Amazon, Overclockers, etc, so this may perhaps be a regional thing for you.
