It is a very interesting card. I have to agree with Steve over at Gamer Nexus in thinking this is more of a strategic play on Nvidia's part than a product play. With the pricing being so close between the 1070, 1070 Ti and 1080 it gets people talking more about Nvidia cards and the Vega 56 kinda disappears out of the spotlight.
Given that you can OC the 1070 Ti to equal to if not better performance than a stock 1080, you do have to think what card should be phased out? Personally I think they should phase out the 1080. The only caveat to my thinking is of course pricing. Where will pricing be in a few weeks or a few months?
