Nvidia’s Founders Edition Graphics CARDS are the Reference Designs

Home » Posts » Nvidia’s Founders Edition Graphics CARDS are the Reference Designs
When Nvidia declared the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 on weekday, there was a bit of confusion surrounding the “Founders Edition” card’s that were listed alongside witha standard cards at a better value. The GTX 1080, for example, was shown as having two variants: a regular card with an MSRP of $599; or a Founders Edition with a tag of $699.

At the time, many speculated that the Founders Edition card would be specially designated to offer higher overclocking performance, or that it would be factory overclocked by Nvidia themselves. As it seems, the Founders Edition is not nearly as special: it’s just a regular reference designed card.

So why would you need to pay an additional $100 (or $70 within the case of the GTX 1070) on the Founders Edition card once it does not offer any real performance advantage? Well, that’s a smart question, and Nvidia has some interesting answers.

Basically, Nvidia feels as if their reference design is the best version of the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. They want to own their design on the marketplace for the life of the card, which is why you will be able to purchase Founders Edition cards from Nvidia directly.

At the same time, Nvidia doesn’t need to compete directly with board partners, which is why partners will sell their variants of the card for fewer. If Nvidia sold their version at the same worth as partners’ versions, this would impact the sales of partners and their relationship with Nvidia.

However Nvidia will have one advantage up their sleeve, and that’s timing. It seems as although you will be able to get a Founders Edition card a lot of earlier than a partner custom-built card, so if you extremely need a new GTX 1080 or GTX 1070 previous others, you can pay somewhat a lot of to induce an early reference design. But like with previous launches, those who need a custom card may have to be compelled to wait a couple of months before partners polish and deliver their designs.

    So basically there is no Performance Difference? If that is the case other than getting the card couple of weeks sooner there is really no reason to buy Founders Edition.
