Would be more interested to see this with GTX 1060, how much it will bump up performance.

I have a new 9 Gbps 1060 here already and will work on a full review on that one as well.

I have an MSI 1060 Gaming X 6gb so naturally I am curious about the newer card. Too bad they won't let us swap for the newer version but one can wish.

Damn. This thing is fast.

And its powered by mere 314mm2 of silicon die. It does bump TDP a little, but seriously, metrics wise GP104 is the best all-around chip ever.

Imagine if they were selling this GPU in 1060 price bracket... free SLI for everyone! Just turn it off when it doesn't work

I've said from the start the GP104 is memory bandwidth starved

Because no full hardware of parallel compute in Pascal. And we dont have a high level Vega or Polaris to see how stand Gtx 1070/1080.
Volta could do that.

At least from benchmark prospective, my Gigabyte 1080 Xtreme factory clocks when gaming are 2025, 10200 and get scores of 23971, 7983. Makes me feel good about my Gigabyte.

I noticed on the Zotac website that they have a "plus" version of the AMP EXTREME now listed. I am interested in doing some flashing on my AMP EXTREME when I get my hands on the BIOS.

If the price didn't increase, I would have bought 2 instead of a 1080 Ti for the hell of it. That card is just way too close and 1080 Tis are annoying with their TDP limits.

When overclocked it's only 5% slower that TX and Ti.

Didnot expect a simple clock increase on the ram would do that much across the board I figured it would only help in few cases

weird there is not the ability to make a comment on the Galax HOF GTX 1080Ti article..... I wanted to know if it is even worth the idea of a 16+3 phase power controller and the three eight pin power connectors. Is that card even capable of "using" that said power to the fullest??

Only asking here as the site will not allow comments on that particular page on here....

EVGA just announced a Bios update that will update any 1080 to newer version. I hope others follow this and not choose the greedy option like MSI.
