Nvidia not only announced their new flagship graphics card; they also released details on new enhanced versions of the GTX 1080 and GTX 1060 that their partners can offer to customers by way of using new overclocked memory. Nvidia also announced the GTX 1080 will see a price cut of €100/$100 starting today. This will also bring the Nvidia Founders edition cards down by €150/$150 for the GTX 1080 FE and down by €50/$50 for the GTX 1070 FE.
Future GTX 1080 and GTX 1060 GPU’s can utilise faster memory speeds from Nvidia. The 1080 will be running 11Gbps GDDR5X and the 1060 running 9Gbps GDDR5 memory speeds.

Nvidia have noted that their AIB partners will have the option of using the new faster memory for their GTX 1080/1060 products and can then market the cards as factory overclocked. This comes along with the announced price cut we mentioned above that makes future GTX 1080’s and even better offer, but of course, it’s need, since their new GTX 1080 Ti arrives next week.
