Colorful’s GTX 1080 Look to be Sporting a Founder’s Edition Cooler

Posted by at 10:54 am on May 16, 2016


It’s been a week since Nvidia revealed the GTX 1080 and 1070 during its Pascal launch event. We have yet to see board partners announce their iterations of the GTX 1080–that is, until today. Colorful announced its GTX 1080, which will coincide with Nvidia’s official May 27 release.

The image Colorful released today shows what appears to be Nvidia’s Founder’s Edition reference blower design. Colorful hasn’t shared the price, but considering what Nvidia said about the $100 price jump for the Founder’s Edition, this card should cost $699 and feature premium components and better overclocking potential.

Although the $100 premium for a blower-style design draws quite a bit of controversy, we have yet to see aftermarket designs from board partners. It will be interesting to see whether the Founder’s Edition design warrants a $100 price hike over aftermarket designs such as EVGA’s ACX 2.0, Asus’s Strix, or Colorful’s very own Ymir.
