Hey NiceGuy, know you returned the monitor already but did you happen to play The Division by chance? Just want to know what fps you were getting with the 1080 on ultra settings (if you played this game ofc).

Trying to justify an upgrade from my Ti but if the 1080 can't hit the 100 fps mark in said game I won't bother.

The only AAA game a 1080 would maintain 100fps in Ultra settings on a X34 would be Doom. No way its doing the rest. It takes every bit of both my clocked to the moon 980Ti's to maintain 100 in the division and the 1080 is only about 10% faster then one of my gpu's at their clocks. The new Titan may be able to do it but I doubt it. You will likely still need a pair of 1080's to hold 100fps in upcoming AAA title's in Ultra settings at Ultra-Wide resolutions.

I did not play that game unfortunately..

I did have a 980 Ti for a short while until I got sucked into the 1080 hunt. When I made the upgrade to 1080 I did notice some improvement in the games I was playing (Doom and Arkham Knight) but not dramatically so. Doom responded best with me being able to maintain approximately the same frame rates on "Ultra" as I was seeing with the 980 Ti on "Very High". Admittedly this is not very useful to your question.

If you're thinking about going 1080 just know it's not going to be a massive improvement and sadly the supply is still quite low meaning you're going to either have to be rather lucky or willing to invest some time monitoring stock to get one. It took some doing for me to find the STRIX I have now.

Of course everything we know about the 1080 Ti or Titan right now is speculation but I personally feel that is the card a 980 Ti owner might want to hold out for.

I was unable to maintain 100fps in Doom on Ultra with the X34. I was seeing 75'ish with dips into the 60's when a lot was going on.

My old rig:
4930k @ 3.9Ghz (all cores)
Rampage IV Black
16GB DDR3 1600
MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X

EDIT: This is not reflective of the Vulcan implementation in Doom. Please disregard and see below.

Have you tried using Vulcan? I was getting the same with results with a single 980Ti at 1533mhz hovering around 80-85 most of the time. Since the addition of Vulcan I rarely see drops under 100. This is with everything maxed including 4x Sharpness and Nightmare texture's.

Ah! Thanks for pointing that out. I completely forgot Vulcan support has now been added. I'll go ahead and take a couple derp points for that one. I did not run the game after the update but before I returned the X34. Wow though - that's quite a boost.

On an entirely different topic:

After using my X34 for a while, the curve was not noticeable and images to me seemed perfectly flat.

My current panel is nearly as wide but does not have a curve. The image to me now seems slightly convex. I completely understand now why they're curving these panels.

Thanks for the insight guys, looks like the smart decision is to hold out for the 1080Ti. Hopefully that's the card will net me that 100+ fps performance so I can take advantage of the refresh rate.

Had my time with sli and prefer the smoothness of a single card so won't be going that route again.

Not a big doom fan, played the demo and that's about it. The division is my go to atm, usually run it @ high settings to maintain above 60 fps, although on ultra settings gsync works extremely well to maintain smooth gameplay.

I also was an SLI user, sans a couple dips into ATI/AMD, from the 8800 GTX era onward to my recent 780 TI SLI setup. Overall the experience was good but man when you run into a game that doesn't scale well or doesn't support SLI full-stop it's frustrating. I'm going to try single-card as well for a while to see how that goes. So far, even at 4k, the 1080 is holding up pretty well. I have to compromise settings for recent AAA's but I'm ok with doing so.

That's why you make sure your gpu's as a single gpu is a beast as well. Simply disable SLI on game's that don't support SLI and you're good. And when you have a demanding game that require's a ton of gpu power to run at Ultra settings you're good to go. I've said it many times. Its better to have far too much then to come up too short. I for one who have had my last 3 gpu upgrade's as SLI setups have never experienced this stutter or sloppy gameplay. My 690, 780Ti's and 980Ti's have been awesome. A single card just isn't enough for demanding AAA title's for my gaming needs. I want the best. Will not settle with cranking things down.
