I got two 980Ti in sli for £460

Where from?

and that's relevant to buying a brand new GTX 1080 because?

Decharvinator

Where from?


Probably from amazon warehouse or ebay. He wouldn't be getting them new at that price.

Just want to know what this does that it's as expensive as my whole computer, or as expensive as my 60" 3D 4K tv

If you want the best you pay for it. My PC has the best of most things and costs over 3k so £700 for a GPU is dear but if its a hobby why not indulge. This is also a good deal atm for a 1080

TV's are in a very competitive industry, which is why its possible to get, lets say, an 'entry level' 60" 4K TV for a few hundred and an 'enthusiast' one which is in the thousands.

GPU industry basically has Nvidia vs. AMD.

Billions are put into research and the cards themselves are incredibly complex things to design and manufacture.

And this is the fastest consumer GPU in the world right now, so that's why its expensive....

It shocks me that people still seem to think this card is massively faster than a 980 Ti. Yes, the performance gap at stock is decent, but once you overclock the cards, the performance difference between a 1080 and 980 Ti is around 10% at 4K resolution. And who is not going to overclock their 980 Ti?!? It's one of the best overclockers ever.

teksyndicate.com/vid…mes

If you are considering one of these cards, you'll be someone who overclocks, full stop. So I'm not sure why not a single of the big tech sites did an overclocked comparison between the 980 Ti and 1080 that shows this measly performance gap (at 1440p the gap is slightly higher, and 1080p higher still). Makes you think they are in the pay of Nvidia. Actually, it's well known that most of them are as they receive review samples from the company as long as they paint their cards in a favourable light.

So what you have to consider is whether 3-6 fps more at 4K after you've overclocked the 1080 is worth it over your overclocked 980 Ti. That and whether lower power draw is a factor.

I don't want it for 4k though because I want some longevity of of my rig

Didn't mean to like your comment as it's completely wrong. 10 percent? More like 40.

I sold my gtx980ti to get the gtx 1080 ftw a lt better card and the game play us smoother on my Predator X34. If it wasn't for early adopters like me we wouldn't have tech advances

I don't think it works like that. Most people buy lower tier GPU's like the 970 for example. That's what make them a lot of money.

Yep gone from a 980ti to a 1080 myself and the difference is clearly obvious. Certainly not just a few frames.
It's the power consumption that's a huge plus as well. My 980Ti would be flat out for any games, but I was looking at the fans of my 1080 while playing R6: Siege earlier and they were barely even spinning. System temps as a whole have gone down now as well.

I think there's about a 20c difference between what my 980Ti idled at and what my 1080 does now!

XBnPC is one of the worst channels on YouTube for tech. He talks about HardWare unboxed and steals his benchmarks but then completely ignores the conclusion he comes to. Whats more the video is made when the cards are brand new and reference vs reference, in the video you see the OC 980ti is way more than 10% behind the stock FE 1080, so where you got 10% from OC vs OC I don't know.

I have just tweaked settings to maximise GPU boost on my Palit GameRock 1070 using EVGA Precision XOC and it sits at 19XXmhz , without over clocking, way above most 980ti OC.

Oh come on. That's not how performance works and you know it. The Fury X is clocked at only 1050Mhz but it's faster than a 1500Mhz 980.

Sure, the 1080 is faster than a 980 Ti but check the first link - at 4k, like I already explained, and when both cards are overclocked to the levels I explained, the 1080 is only around 10% faster. 10 PERCENT. In some cases, even less. if the 980 Ti is getting 40 fps, the 1080 is getting 43 fps.

I also explained that the advantage for the 1080 is slightly more at 1080p (which is rather irrelevant as most would be on 1440p or higher if they have one of these £600 cards) and 1440p but point still stands, at 4K, the performance gap is tiny.

If you've got the money, buy it and try to justify your purchase.

If you don't have the money, buy a cheaper card and try to justify your purchase.

Either way, you could be spending quality time enjoying your card right now instead of squabbling on a deal site.

Simples.

Yes it is a mark of performance, especially when overclocking. You are using out dated benchmarks of cards from release, with release drivers vs mature drivers for the 980ti. Plus no other benchmark, not even the ones you linked match you conclusion, please link Mr to the 4K 10% benchmarks I can't find them?

Here are some updated benchmarks from hardware unboxed, using newer drivers with the same cards,note how his 980ti is sitting at 2000mhz, which is a very good OC and not what most people will achieve; youtu.be/ux7…KoI

Edit; oh I see the 10% difference @4k comes from tech syndicates video. Watch his benchmarks in later videos where 1070s matches the 980ti in later videos and the 1080s push out ahead. You really have to keep up with bench marks.

I tend to skip videos. YouTube rarely has the same level of meticulous reviews.

Over 30 percent faster at 4k. Anyway, glad you found newer reviews.

Thanks for that, I like articles too, but nowadays alot decent sites have YouTube channels as well and once I have read through a few reviews of different versions of the same card I find it easier to quick watch benchmarks and YouTube to get the jist of what's going on, unless I'm buying.
