Going top of the line almost always entails spending top dollar, and while that is still true of Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card, Massdrop is offering one at a pretty nice discount.
The Aorus (Gigabyte) GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is up for grabs. Initially the sale had both Gigabyte's Extreme SKU for $730, and the standard model (GV-N1-8TAORUS-11GD) for $680. The Extreme version is sold out, but the latter (and less expensive) model is still available.
That is the cheapest around for a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Over at Newegg, the least expensive variant is an MSI model for $745. There is a $10 mail-in-rebate available, but even factoring that in, Massdrop has it beat by $55.
The Aorus card that is up for grabs has a 1,569MHz base clock and 1,683MHz boost clock in Gaming mode, and a 1,594MHz base clock and 1,708MHz boost clock on OC mode. Both are overclocked from Nvidia's reference specs, which calls for a 1,480MHz base clock and 1,582MHz boost.
For cooling, this card uses a three-fan cooling solution with a large copper base plate that makes direct contact with the GPU and VRAM, and a copper back plate.
