That is why, I don't expect the 1070 using it's best driver to topple a 980TI with it's driver.
Also note of the AOTS results. We knew the fact that even the 390X slightly beats the 980TI in AOTS. Something you notice? These are paid reviews.
I'm waiting for end-user results to believe. That's just me.
While on AMD side (thread related) when the 300 series parts were released, the driver gave them the edge over 200 series cards. Yes. But we, 290/X users also gained some. So we're not gimped.
Yeah, I definitely want to see some user results, but if you go into the 1080 thread plenty of users are posting up 24k+ graphics scores. I scrolled through about 3 pages worth yesterday, lol
The card is certainly impressive, but I think the people who just dumped their 980ti's off for $350-400 are out of their minds. The maxwell architecture is actually faster clock for clock than Pascal, but it just so happens to be able to run at a crazy high clock speed to make up for it. Kind of the same tactic AMD took with going from Phenom to FX series.
The worst part about the 1080 is how badly NVIDIA has gimped it with power limtiations and hard limited voltages, etc.... even the LN2 guys are hating those things right now. Best clock so far has been near 2.5GHz I think, which is a really high clock speed for a GPU, but from a percentage standpoint it's nowhere near the headroom that the maxwells had.
If NVIDIA truly wanted these new cards to dominate they should have used a tad more memory bandwidth. But I guess that's what we will see with the 1080ti.....
I am very interested in seeing how a ~$460 RX480 8GB crossfire setup does in people's hands because I get the feeling that card is going to give us some good overclockability.
