The power limitation is 180 watts (acx 3.0) and I wonder with this card, if overclocking it would yield more performance gains over my current 980TI. At the same time, if anything is held back in other areas compared to my 980TI FTW, i'm skeptical.

I believe I paid more for my 980TI over the current 1080 ACX 3.0. Perhaps the gains are only marginal, part of me says that if choosing between the two (if available at the same time) I would have gone with the 1080 at the current pricing.

980Ti is solid though, still waiting a bit I suppose.

I agree, the best seems like the ACX 3.0 reference. The FTW version of the 1080 will not be available for step up. I believe only reference boards design are available for step up and I believe FTW is custom. I bought 980 Ti Classified for $610. There was two versions and I bought the cheaper one. The box says it's a Classified SC and there is no product picture when I registered it online. My 980 Ti may be better off with the better power delivery design but I'd rather choose the newer tech that is better at stock specs. Additionally 1080 has 2GB more of VRAM and it would be hard to swallow the fact I bought a 980 Ti so late at $600+.

I got my 970 FTW+ in March. I'm stepping up to a 1080 ACX 3.0 for $250. $620-$410+shipping+Handling+taxes in CA=$250.

Should not cost much to step-up to the ACX 3.0 for me.

Should be good!

It's smooth as butter but I don't know how much better it can be or look, but thats not really the whole point.




I will have to make a decision soon I suppose with the release being next week.

Just know that when you do step up to your new 1080 that the image quality in your games is generally going to look exactly the same. If your monitor is 60Hz refresh, you really won't be garnering any real increase in visible gaming performance. That being said once you do upgrade monitor to 1440p/4k/high refresh you may start to see some benefit of the 1080 over 980Ti.
Just curious: why did you decide to buy a 980Ti so close to expected 1080 launch window?
How are you going to feel when Titan/1080Ti launch?

How are you going to feel when Titan/1080Ti launch?

A new monitor with a new Hz is on my list of upgrades.

I'm not sure, I was so antsy with getting a new card and I didn't know what to expect from the new launch. Too be honest, I thought the new cards were going to be very expensive, not 600-700.00 range. I then told myself the 980TI will be good for my needs for years to come, but now it's not really about that.

I won't feel too bad about the Titan or 1080TI because I think they will be priced too high for my liking.

At least this is how I look at it now.

Me too. I bought the 980 Ti to keep me covered for gaming for a while. Then the 1080 was announced within 1-2 weeks. Now it's about paying ~$600 for 980 Ti when a newer 1080 is the same and performs better.

My next purchase is a monitor with a higher refresh. Only thing is it needs to have G-Sync, Ultra Wide Screen and maybe curved. Going to cost a bit

Exactly, while the 980TI might keep up and exceed in certain areas (maybe not) if both were available at the same time at the price point, I would have gone with the 1080.


The monitor as you described is exactly what I am after! Just have to wait and find the right deal. My current monitor will still be used though for productivity purposes but it will not look good next a new monitor smile.gif


Kickasscop-It's going to happen, i'll start this process this week.
