EVGA starts selling all of its GTX 1080 Ti GPUs for $349.99

Would you buy a "B-Stock" graphics card?



Read more about EVGA's low GTX 1080 Ti B-Stock pricing.

Way too much for a 3 and a half year old obsolete GPU especially seeing as the 3070, Which will leave it in the dust, Is only $150 more and comes with newer tech like RT and DLSS.

It's not obsolete.

I think it's fantastic for any one with a 580 or what not. Especially if you are a 1080p high FPS gamer who doesn't care about RT etc.

Pascal was one of their best techs, and it shows still in benchmarks. It's still as fast as a 2080.

That phrase, Dice, doesn't exist any more mate. Obsolete. That is what happens when you have a power war dude. Look at CPUs. You can easily still use a 6 year old CPU for gaming. The 1080Ti is still a monster. It can handle 1440p very easily. Case in point? my XP was hitting 120 FPS mins in COD MW easily. How is that ever obsolete?

It depends on your mindset I suppose. If the latest model number means everything to you then yeah, every GPU before it is obsolete. However, as we know in reality that is not the case. Not any more. Buy a decent GPU now and it lasts a whoooole lot longer than the year you would get out of it. Those yearly releases and improvements are gone mate.

obsolete comes into play when Nvidia stops focussing drivers on the old gen models.

1 of the meanings of obsolete is "no longer in production", Nvidia stopped production in 2018.

Someone will find a use for them, if not gamers.

1080 Ti is still extremely good for all MOBA games and also for all MMORPG. There are tons of people that play only those games.

In my country used 1080 Tis are 350€. Getting a new one is extra for that money.
