Report: Founders Edition GeForce cards will be first to ship


— 8:31 AM on May 9, 2016

PC gaming enthusiasts Gamers Nexus helped decipher Nvidia's cryptic Order of 10 shenanigans last week. The site was also on the scene at Dreamhack 2016 in beautiful Austin, Texas, and got confirmation on one of the more curious details in the green team's GTX 1070 and GTX 1080  announcement. Some confusion arose when Nvidia listed premium "Founders Edition" pricing for the new graphics cards alongside a more traditional suggested retail price. Gamers Nexus dove into this confusion and found that "Founders Edition" is a fancy way of saying "reference design."

The new branding, despite what it might imply, is not a limited run or limited edition. Founders Edition cards will be available for as long as the GTX 10-series is produced. Founders Edition cards are also not pre-overclocked or binned for superior overclocking potential. According to Gamers Nexus, the Founders Edition cards will be the first ones shipping, though, meaning that if you were hoping to get into a 10-series card for suggested retail prices, you might have to wait a bit.
