No, it's screwed because nvidia fucked up and tried to rush their card to the market before AMD. Now there is a huge stock problem which caused the prices to go up.
Founders edition price only applies to the card that nvidia makes them self.
That MSI card is aftermarket btw.
And msrp is recommended price anyway, apple is the only company that actually follows their msrp price, others just don't give a shit.
US is lucky with the pricing of 1080, here it costs 800 euros, that's 200 more than the "msrp"

This and GP104 overclocking like crap is the reason why I'm waiting for GP102 or Volta

Do we know why they're overclocking badly? Is it power limited?

Well, it sort of is. The reference 1080's have very limited power delivery, which isn't a bad thing in itself cause they're so efficient anyway. But it does to some extent limit overclocking, but for the most part it's the silicon lottery, and also just the fact that these chips simply can't handle much more than 2.1Ghz before stopping dead. Which is why on exotic cooling, a good 980 Ti will actually beat a 1080 because GM200 has a much higher IPC than GP104. But again this is on exotic/extreme cooling, there's no way a 980 Ti will win on air. Phase change, ice, or LN2, definitely. Water, maybe.. not entirely sure. But this is why I wanted to get than Titan X with the waterblock instead of a 1070, regardless if I had it on air or got a waterblock later on.

I think it really boils down to the fabrication process, though. Smaller transistors are obviously more efficient, but they don't need / can't handle as much voltage + current before becoming unstable. I mean, older cards like the GTX 280's didn't even go near their limits on air, and you'd limited by temperatures. Today that headroom is smaller, even my 980's barely gained anything from being watercooled (except having lower temps and noise). On top of that, GPU Boost is being pushed further with every generation too, so that's another factor.

Oh well. 2.1 is still insane.

(Not like you can really use the cards for anything but benchmarks with extreme cooling anyway.)

Ah seems to be power limited.

None of the cards are MSRP priced.

the whole pricing with the 1080's and 1070's is screwed up because of the founders cards. Like i can see the aftermarket cards being 50 dollars more than the MSRP but they said that specific card would be the MSRP.
