    Well if you're using a 780 it's no wonder you didn't see much of an improvement?

    Also, with all the rumours surrounding the 1080ti, it wouldn't surprise me if it popped up near the end of this year.

    Yeah keep what you got 980ti.

    For me, its sad this new card does great at 1080? Yet loses ground hitting higher rez.

    I definitely wouldn't upgrade from a 980 Ti to a 1080. I'd wait for Vega.

    Solid post.


    And I imagine they will DROP clock speeds on the 1080ti to counter that :) The calculated incremental increase will remain under tight control. Anything impressive and they just match it with price. Same old same old.

    GP102. That is all. Don't let yourself be swayed by all the 1080 insanity.. I actually wish so badly that AMD would be releasing Polaris today so that the non-stop 1080 fanaticism wouldn't be so pervasive.

    if and when the 1080ti does come out.. (perhaps later this year)

    what will you folks do with your current 980tis?

    hehe
