Great card and a great review ! Are you going to do an SLI review ?
Awesome card! Nvidia, awesome job!
HH, top review!
With such power it is rather tempting to return from my gaming retirement!
There is probably no point in testing sli anymore other than to show its not being supported like it used to be.
Because when the frame rate drops below 60 with V-Sync on, games gets really stuttery. Adaptive refresh keeps the game feeling relatively smooth when you're in the 45-60fps range.
A card like this needs to also be tested for what it might actually be useful for which is a triple 27" monitor setup with 2560x1440 on each display for a total of 11Mpixels which is more than UltraHD of 8Mpixels.
That's what I am interested in it for.
Those with a single 2560x1440 monitor or even more stupidly a 1080P monitor are only wasting their time and money looking at this.
How are they stupid,? This is the first card that is ideal for a single high refresh 1080/1440 screen.
On the other hand it isn't powerful enough for 2x1440.
The big hope for these cards are 4k play. The top end Vega will be judged the same way.
Pretty good performance over the X model. I thought it might be a tad below.
Great review Hilbert, thank you. We finally have a 4K card for just gaming.
+1 for a SLI review please
But let's have a test in SLI to see where we are?
Not really, but okay. You can still see minimum frames below 60 with a 1080ti at QHD.
**** it. I bought one. Gonna buy an EK block and shove it on there. I never want below 60fps ever again lol
I'm looking forward to mine as well, though it will likely take some weeks till I can buy it here (MSI Gaming on that is).
Let us know how much you squeeze out of it!
I'm mad. I bought one.
Enjoy the cards, pretty sure they'll be faster than Vega anyway.
Yep and the next round of Titans will do exactly the same, it'll sell and nobody will regret it. Titans have been around for years and fair play, the first time it happened, I can understand people got upset, but nowadays it's common practise and it's just how the market works.
I honestly don't understand why someone has a problem with rich people spending money.
Any idea when the non-reference ones will release?
You should know by now. Sucks, and sorry that you got one, but you should.
I am stoked for this card, but gonna wait to see how the later Asus/MSI card does OC and then pick whichever does best.
I like to get maximum days out of my investment. Upgrade to a 1180ti in 2 years or whatnot like I did with these puppies. Just generally grateful I only needed 1 card for 4k really after having to play every freaking release on one 980ti and having to turn down settings as my second card sat there with a goofy smile.
That and I'll be putting an all in one watercooler on it asap. Also I got an Asus insteado f EVGA this time as the early EVGAs never seem to clock well because they have so many higher binned variants.
I've got one in the mail to me right now. I think it should be pretty good for 4K even at stock, but if it get's too loud or hot overclocked I can always drop an Arctic Acellero IV for $60 on it down the road. Not having to pay a stupid "premium" for a reference card (like the 1080 was last year) made me allot more willing to go for it this time. My 1080 Strix sold in a heartbeat last week, so I can't wait any longer to see what the AIB products are priced like.
I don't know why but the idea of 11GB and not 12GB makes my eye twitch.
