Good review, as always.
Can't help by wonder why you didn't included the Strix 1080Ti OC in these tests?
And i'm still going to wait on more tests before even considering placing an order.

I like the ASUS kit but Tom you're spot on. The premium on this thing is ridiculous especially when compared to the MSI for example.

The other thing that's mad is that for that price they couldn't even braid or blackout the connector cables that dangle out the side of the cooler.

Poor show ASUS, poor show indeed!

Considering they use automatic assembly now you'd think the price would decrease if there's less wages to pay.

They're £200 more than MSI trio and not enough ahead in performance to justify that and the MSI cards look just as good now, I've always admited I'm an Asus fanboy but if I was looking at selling 1 of my testicles or both to get 1 of these i'd go MSI and a good sized M.2 to go with it

I have got to agree with the Guv on the pricing on these . I know i'm a bit of and Asus fan ,and it looks like they have done a pretty good job on these with performance , but for me 1500 of my hard earned pounds is just too much to swallow

“They'll be no triple SLI setups here unless motherboards see a wholesale redesign.”

Well ... that and the fact only 2-Way through NVLink is supported :-)

Absurd pricing. I don't know how these are going to be considered a success, I really don't.
