    According to an industry source, the GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition will be priced at R9,000 in South Africa.

    R9k for the founders, so the "normal" one should be a bit less, if so, then I'd love to pre-order mine already! Not interested in FE

    Sadly, not if we see the same pattern as with the 1080. Oddly, the FE cards turned out to be cheaper in South Africa.
    You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted, then used against you.

    I think it is too early to call yet, even for the 1080. Stock is hard to get so you still have to pay premium prices.
    With the local online retailers I checked, nowhere could you just drop one into your cart. It's listed as either "out of stock", "enquire", "pre-order" or "contact for availability".
    Also, there are not a lot of non-founders edition cards listed yet and those that are have words like "extreme" and "gaming" in the title. And them be $$$ words.

    For example, the cheapest card I could find (EVGA FE, Rebeltech for R12999 *Out of Stock/Enquire*) doesn't even have any non-FE cards from the same brand listed anywhere locally to make a comparison with.

    As a wise man once said:

    ...little patience, mm yeah, mm yeah
    need a little patience, yeah
    just a little patience, yeah
    some more patience, yeah
    need some patience, yeah
    could use some patience, yeah
    gotta have some patience, yeah
    all it takes is patience,
    just a little patience
    is all you need
    One day, I'll grow up and become responsible.
    Probably not today.

    Cards will go on sale at 15:00 this afternoon bud.
    Rebeltech almost certainly has stock, so keep an eye on them.

    So, at 15:10 I visit Rebeltech and there they are.
    It's uncanny. It's almost like you KNEW it would be there.

    hopefully this drops the 970's as drastically as the 1080 dropped the 980ti
