    Nice... basically a GTX 1080 for less. NVIDIA, always finding a way to shaft its customers. ;)

    Be interesting to see if they are locked down on clocks or not (a the rumours suggest), I reckon a heavily overclocked vanilla 1070 at £350 would be a better buy still, or chump up the extra £20-30 and get a 1080...

    This product makes no sense. -128 cuda cores, -8 texture units, lower boost clock, GDDR5 instead of GDDR5X - all that for a $50 saving compared to GTX1080 ?

    It uses up yields of not-quite 1080s to presumably beat Vega 56 at a lower price than the 1080 does it for. You can definitely ask "why bother", but you can also ask "why not?".

    I mean it would make sense - but not at $50 price difference, which is less than a typical difference between various models of various manufacturers. $100 difference, we can start talking. But at $50 it is really pointless.

    Yep, silly or not, people will buy them.

    Create an intermediate card and make a bit extra from those 1080 dies that didn't quite make the grade

    "Nvidia says that it offers twice the performance of the well-received GTX 970, evidently in a bid to compel owners of said card to consider the upgrade."

    I'm still waiting. I bought my 970 at $350. It will be replaced by a $350 card again, it's just a matter of how much improvement the replacement will be that's worth using my credit card with potentially paying interest....
