funny to see this thread consists in 90% of 980ti owners willing to break the world's power consumption record to show 980ti can surpass a 1080.
I think that is more to show that the gap isn't as wide as some of the initial hyped reviews claimed it was (stock boosting well vs very ref stock).
My (binned) 980Ti took max 225W to run at 1551Mhz.. From that point the 1080 is a small improvement in either performance or power draw, but it's not entirely apples to apples comparison. And also a little funny with people at the same time crying for more power connectors on the 1080
An interesting option besides a 1080, is the 1070 in SLI for a little bit more money ($760 hopefully vs $620-$680?).
