I just picked up a couple 980tis in sli a few weeks ago - absolute beasts so far, 35+% faster than my 980s, and only $100 more out of pocket for them!

I am a firm believer in sticking with a single card whenever possible. Less power, less heat, less case/motherboard real/estate, etc. SLI is generally pretty reliable but there's not much more deflating than running into a game that either doesn't support it or doesn't support it without problems.

Hmmm
I really don't think, even with mature drivers, that we will see one day a GTX 1080 come near close to SLI 980 Ti's. Even if they are on stock...

Not if a game supports SLI, I think maxwell and pascal are so close, architecturally, that when one gets optimizations, it will carry over - but could be wrong

I agree. The 1080 isn't going to be the card to accomplish that. The 1080 Ti could be though. As a rough generalization, the 980 Ti was just slightly behind 780 Ti SLI in terms of performance.

Now, if the game at hand didn't have very good SLI scaling or SLI support to begin with, the 980 Ti wins by a landslide. That's more or less my point. If SLI is working and happy, then great; you can get some serious performance. You may have a nice SLI setup and enjoy it for years without running into a single issue depending on the games you play. On the other hand, you may find a game that has bad scaling, stuttering, or other odd problems which wouldn't be evident on a single card.

I am coming from a 780 Ti SLI setup and the vast majority of the time it worked. There was some odd stuff occasionally like flashing in the DiRT 3 but nothing that broke the game. Then I ran into the final form of Arkham Knight and Doom which do not support SLI (or didn't last time I checked). That my friend was a bummer.

You are welcome! If I get anymore news I will be sure to pass it along.

I think it has been established that the 1080 are better options for Non TI owners,
