"Is the Founders Edition overpriced?"
I don't think anyone but an nvidia PR person ever denied that.Quote

Actually they didn't deny it, they just gracefully avoided the question lol.Quote

The difference in performance between the Founders Edition and these new AIB cards is actually quite small in comparison to Maxwell; it's only around 1-3% from what I can see. I've looked at a few reviews so far from Guru3D, KitGuru and of course OC3D, and the FPS gains are surprisingly insignificant. So what you are getting with ASUS, MSI, EVGA, etc is better looks (subjective) and superior thermals, which is where your own overclocking comes in because the stock overclocks aren't as impressive as they were for Maxwell. To illustrate that:

I won't post the images here as it may not be appropriate, but here is a review by Guru3D of The Witcher III at 1440p.

NVidia 980ti (reference) - 61 FPS
Gigabyte G1 Gaming 980ti - 71 FPS

NVidia 1080 (Founders Edition) - 82 FPS
MSI GAMING X 8G 1080 - 85 FPS

Another comparison, this time of GTA V at 1440P from KitGuru with their ASUS Strix 1080 review:

NVidia 980ti (reference) - 72 FPS
ASUS Strix 980ti - 79 FPS

NVidia 1080 (Founders Edition) - 96 FPS
ASUS Strix 1080 - 98 FPS

And this is Tom's review just posted testing Hitman Absolution at 1440p:

NVidia 980ti (reference) - 48 FPS
ASUS Strix 980ti - 53.4 FPS

NVidia 1080 (Founders Edition) - 67.4 FPS
ASUS Strix 1080 - 68.4 FPS

These were just randomly picked. The Founders Edition holds its own with these AIB cards. The differences are almost negligible. This is surprising considering the overclocking headroom from the 1080. Maybe NVidia and the AIB partners expect you to overclock yourself?Quote

I thought it was overpriced as iirc nVidia said the AIB cards would come in cheaper than the "Reference Cards" but from what I have seen so, far they are all more expensive.

So in my opinion I do not think the "Reference Cards" are overpriced as such since they are new cards and nVidia always likes to hike the price of new cards, but I do think the AIB cards are, and to me it just seems like they are determined to not sell them for cheaper than the "Reference Cards".Quote
