Ready for the power of 10 with a ti and aftermarket cooler.
There is going to be a 1070 Ti model? For real or speculation? I would have guessed something like 1060 Ti and 1080 ti a 1070 ti does not make alot of sence to be honest But I am curious how this will play out.
Ah, in that case that's 2pm here in the UK - well I can wait till 2pm but was hoping to enjoy the review with my post breakfast coffee! :-(
Aww,was expecting when i wake up the review to be up. Damn NDA.
I think Hilbert isn't ready. :nerd:
Come on guys, the NDA can't be that heavy - let's lift it together
ONE, TWO, THREE....liiiiift!
I absolutely love my EVGA GTX 980 Ti SC but since upgrading from a 1920x1200 to a 2560x1440 display earlier on this year it's become clear that it no longer has the horsepower to run many major releases at max settings and hold 60 fps, e.g. The Witcher 3, The Division, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Quantum Break, Need for Speed, etc.
As such, I am extremely interested in reading how the GTX 1080 compares to the GTX 980 Ti and, in particular, how it fares in those games at 2560x1440. 4K is years away for me (except for downsampling in older games) and I am more than happy with 2560x1440 on my Dell U2515H 25" 60 Hz display as it looks super-crisp from where I am sitting. I just need a bit more GPU power it seems to maintain that ideal 60 fps I prefer.
Part of me wants the GTX 1080 to only be as fast as my overclocked 980 Ti so that I will be tempted instead to wait for next year's cards instead (the GTX 1080 Ti?). I do generally upgrade my GPU every year though and it is coming up to a year since I bought my GTX 980 Ti...
Well, if 3DMark FS floating around is any indicative to real world performance, then a GTX 1080 is indeed as fast as a OCed 980Ti@1550-1560MHz.
I'm too tempted by the GTX 1080 but I think I'm gonna hold on my 980Ti.
Especially since it has a huge sentimental value too(Someone here knows what I'm talking about).
One small note everyone because I dont think I saw it mentioned here.
When reviews go live don't go "Ohhhh its sooo much faster then 980Ti!!!", because do not forget it will be compared to a stock reference 980Ti.
And although not exactly fair, I would like it to see it again a custom 980Ti@1350-1400MHz which many boost that hight at stock.
Nvidia 368.13 drivers. Sweet!
ready when you are H.H
still holding to my 980 Ti for the time being anyways
Unless reviews tell me otherwise, I'll sell my 980Ti and get the 1080. I really need that extra horsepower you're talking about in 1440p and hope to get it with an OCd 1080.
Ofc its fair when you have to compare a card you have to compare reference with a reference card, else you cant see how much better the card is, and you dont know if you can OC the new 1080 card just as much as the GTX 980 TI.
And to be completly fair you have to compare the GTX 980 with the GTX 1080 as the 1080 is to replace the GTX 980.
I have seen some rumors that there will be a TI card in the fall of the 1080, so its only fair to compare the TI card agianst the TI if the rumors are true ofc.
Same here, it's funny how I couldn't keep 60 FPS all the time at 1440p @ 60Hz (2x970s) in a number of games when maxed. If I were to have a 144Hz monitor I would have to tune the settings way down in most games to get anywhere near that FPS.
Already sold (yesterday) my 980ti for €500 :banana:.
I need every bit of FPS i can get, upgraded from a Asus 24' VGH236 1080p 120Hz monitor to a Acer 34'' X34 G-sync 21:9 3440x1440 and its PCMR!
I also need to be close to 60FPS to maintain that 120fps/120hz smoothness feeling (gsync does wonders), so i cant wait for the 1080 and when the 1080TI releases i will sell this one and upgrade again.
Isn't this a stock, reference 1080 he'll be reviewing? That would seem to be the only fair and easily understood comparison is comparing this card to other stock cards with reference clock speeds.
Stock speeds are all I really care about with these types of reviews. Reviewers (they say) get sent golden samples so whatever overclocks they hit are kind of moot (not Hilbert's fault). It's nice to see that some card series are clearly great overclockers but when we start comparing overclocked results, the waters get murky as user results may vary wildly.
I'm getting one regardless. I've been wanting to upgrade since the Witcher 3 came out but I was waiting for this card. Now I'm on 4K (drool) and even the 1080 won't be the magic answer for AAA titles but it will do nicely until the 1180 drops. :nerd:
That's what I got, a 144Hz monitor And 60fps is not something you want with that kind of monitor (although I got used to it playing DS3 which is capped at 60). So yes, I had to tone down settings, for example in Division to not go below 80fps and also the Witcher 3 to avoid sub 75fps.
What the f*ck? 500€, thats really good! I'm glad to get €300 at best here in Sweden (cheap mofos ).
Yea, I'll also buy the 1080Ti
Haha yeah some dude wanted a 980ti really really bad hehe. And most second hand ti's here in the netherlands are selling for around €450,-.
But remember, custom 1080's are still a month away. So asking price for a 980ti is still somewhat justifed because not everybody wants to wait for a month and have no GPU in their systems..
Im interested to see comparsion 1080 vs 980 SLI both overclocked.
But I not open my pocket before I get atleast +50% GPU power
