Deal: Save £20 on an Asus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card

If you’re looking to build a seriously powerful gaming rig, we’ve found a decent deal on a supercharged graphics card: the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

Amazon is currently selling Asus’ take on the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti for just £679.97, which is £20 less than the recommended retail price. According to the CamelCamelCamel price tracker, this is the lowest price that the Asus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has ever been sold at on Amazon.

It’s also worth noting that other Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti models built by rival firms are currently retailing for more than this Asus model. For example, versions built by EVGA (£694.98), Gigabyte (£689.99), and MSI (£723.73) are all more expensive on Amazon.

Given the fact that this is a good price on an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, and that you’re purchasing from a reliable retailer (Asus, via Amazon), this is definitely a recommend deal. The discount may not be huge, but this is certainly one of the best ways to buy this card right now.

The Asus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is a dream graphics card for PC gamers, boasting 3854 CUDA cores, a 1.6GHz boost clock speed, 11GB of GDDR5 RAM, three DisplayPorts, and one HDMI port.

We gave the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti a 4.5/5 score in our review, praising the card’s epic 4K gaming performance, high overclockability, and the fact that it’s the fastest consumer card you can currently buy. Here’s Computer Editor Michael Passingham’s verdict:

“Buying the most expensive graphics card you can afford has long been a reviewer’s’ trope, but it’s almost always true. The 1080 Ti stretches this advice to its very limits with its super-high price, but with no competition from AMD at this end of the market, Nvidia has reached new performance territory.”

“When buying a 1080 Ti, don’t think about the Titan X – for what it offers, it’s rather overpriced at this point – but think more about the GTX 1080. With the 1080’s big price drop to £500, it’s become the new de facto choice for 4K gaming at High settings.”

“However, with 3GB more memory and at least 20% better performance, it’s hard not to recommend the 1080 Ti for those building the best system they possibly can for 4K and multi-screen gaming.”

“If you’re thinking about a direct upgrade from the 980 Ti, the performance increase is substantial; the 1080 Ti is up to twice as fast. If you have a 1080, your card has a lot of life left in it and it’s probably wise to stick with it for now.”

“If you don’t have a 4K monitor and don’t plan on buying one, the 1080 Ti is overkill – and even if you have a 1080 Ti but don’t always find yourself playing the very latest AAA games, you can save a couple of hundred quid on a 1080 or more on a 1070.”
