The first South African pricing and estimated time of availability for aftermarket GTX 1080, NVIDIA’s new King of GPUs, have appeared via local online retailer Rebeltech. Find out how much an aftermarket GTX 1080 will cost, as well as the local pricing for the GTX 1080 Founders Edition cards currently available.

Aftermarket GTX 1080

Aftermarket GPUs feature an increased clock speed and custom cooling solutions; basically increasing the performance over the standard Founders Edition cards. The first aftermarket GTX 1080 pricing in South Africa come from Rebeltech, who lists ASUS and GIGABYTE versions. Both GPUs are “currently out of stock” with an estimated time of delivery set for 8 July 2016.

Evetech has also listed five aftermarket GTX 1080’s. However, at the time of writing the pricing on these cards are still R99,999 (an obvious placeholder). Further, the estimated time of delivery is currently unknown.

We will update the article when pricing and date of release becomes available.

Founders Edition

Pricing The GTX 1080 Founders Edition (the standard, non-overclocked version) is now available in South Africa, with limited stock from local retailers.

  • CPU 8GB DDR4 2400MHz RAM

Both the PC’s come with a free MSI Gaming Mousepad and five games, namely Mortal Kombat X, Warface, World of Warships, Rainbow Six: Siege and Just Cause 3; the Core i7 GTX 1080 also comes with a MSI Gaming Mouse.  

The prices might look pretty insane to a lot of people, but keep in mind that this is NVIDIA’s new flagship GPU. The Titan X still sells for R20,000 and the GTX 980 Ti for roughly the same price as the GTX 1080. However, the GTX 1080 easily beats NVIDIA’s previous flagship offerings.
