Fudzilla, citing the usual anonymous industry sources, claims that the GeForce GTX 1080 is the best selling high-end card in history. While there aren't any official numbers out to back up that claim, it's painfully obvious that sales would be even better if anyone had stock on hand of the GTX 1080. Thanks to trandoanhung1991 for the link.
Everyone we talked to, outside of Nvidia of course, has confirmed that Geforce GTX 1080 launch was the biggest volume high end card launch, that was ever deceived by Nvidia at launch date. This got confirmed by both AIB and retail / etail sources and guess what, it all sold out in minutes. The numbers were much bigger than with Geforce GTX 980 or Ti launch, but it still sold within minutes.
