    Probably gonna get one ,i'll wait a bit after it launches, need to see some legit reviews first. Don't want to make any mistakes because of new tech hype.

    I plan on buying a Founders Edition GTX 1080, and then when the big Pascal variant comes out next year, I'll sell it and buy the 1080 Ti or whatever it will be called.

    Having used SLI in the past for many years, I don't think I will be going back any time soon as the technology seems to be becoming less and less popular with developers.

    The reference cooler looks to be really amazing this time around, with an aluminum shroud and an updated vapor chamber cooler. As a result, I don't think third party coolers will have much of an advantage, if any on the reference cooler..

    They did against the 980, and it shows 70% - 80% increase.

    I think the naming will be difference, 1080 it's kind of stupid because it is refers to 1080p, and these gpu's are aimed for 1440p and 4K.

    i'm pretty sure that there won't be 1080Ti this time around. They don't need it until AMD challenge.

    The need for 980-Ti was Fury-X, but AMD won't challenge 1080 with Polaris which is a mainstream GPU, that might compete with 1070/1060.

    My bet is Vega vs P102 Q1-2017. Meanwhile 1080 will be king.


    If i can find a buyer for my 980-Ti, i'll grab a founder 1080.

    I really want one of these, particularly as getting a solid 60 fps in recent games such as Quantum Break, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Hitman, at 2560x1440 with maxed out settings is not possible. Would be nice to have SLI performance and extra overhead from a new card. Disappointed though that it is 256-bit with just 320 GB/s bandwidth; was expected it to be much higher really.

    The question is though do I really need it and, more to the point, will their be a more powerful GTX 1080 Ti a few months afterwards with the same performance like the GTX 780 Ti and GTX 980 Ti. Of course, no-one knows except for NVIDIA but it would be nice to have confirmation from them that these are the only high-end cards they will be releasing this year.

    Obviously, I can sell my GTX 980 Ti to offset some of the cost and I am off at the end of the month when the card goes on sale. Very tempting but will have to wait for the reviews to see how my current card fares against it (it is overclocked at 1,441 MHz on the core and an extra 250 MHz on the memory for a bandwidth of 360.5 GB/s).

    One is coming my way for sure. Will wait for custom coolers from MSI/Asus etc.. and see how do they perform. Will most likely go for the most silent one.

    The big question for me (besides when the inevitable GTX 1080 Ti will actually come out) is how well does this really perform in DX12 games compared with AMD's cards because they seem to have a big advantage over NVIDIA at the moment. DX12 games are only going to become more common going forward. Also, while this looks like a good upgrade over the older GTX 980, how much of an upgrade does it offer over the GTX 980 Ti?

    Having moved up from a 1920x1200 to a 2560x1440 I am finding more and more games struggle to hold a solid 60 fps on my preferred maxed out settings so this card is tempting if only for that reason. Not at all interested in VR (I think it will prove as gimmicky for gaming personally as 3D was) so I don't need the performance for that, thankfully.

    Well, if I do buy one then I will likely opt for an EVGA SC reference model.

    I currently have a MSI GTX 980 4G Gaming, so a GTX 1080 8G Gaming will be a huge upgrade ;-)

    Since I'm not a fan of SLI and only gaming at 3440x1440p

    The GTX 1080 is the perfect card.

    My guess the 1080Ti if it ever arrives would cost $800 at release. Question is how much better will it perform over the regular 1080. Yes it will probably host 16GB of HBM2 memory but I'm interested in cuda cores and rops tflops etc.

    Anyway also looking forward for AMDs response.
