I won't go sli again. Funny thing is, the 980 ti price here is dropping to where I got it 6 months ago. God bless MSY.

Which one of those cards is faster than a $619 GTX 1080?


Do you realize how silly it sounds to say the $619 GTX 1080 is "incredibly expensive" when the cheapest GTX 980 launched at $550 and the cheapest 980 Ti launched at $650?

Do you know how silly you sound? Just because something's the fastest, doesn't mean it should be more expensive than prior gpus....I know this has been beaten into the ground, but if that was the case, but if gpu prices scale that way since their inception, we'd be paying $5000+ for midrange gpus

1080 should be $550 at most.

OK, have you ever heard of this thing called Inflation? It's an economic term, I suggest you look it up.


My first car, a V8 Camaro cost me a whopping $8,700 brand new. A V8 Camaro today costs $37,000. That's inflation. This cost more over time. Prices go up. It's inevitable. That's inflation.


And for the record here.

The GTX 580 was $500 at launch.
The GTX 680 was $500 at launch.
The GTX 780 was $650 at launch.
The GTX 980 was $550 at launch.

Yes, the GTX 1080 cost more than the 980 did, but you can get a GTX 1080 today for less than you could buy the GTX 780 for when it launched.

I find it funny that the same people who think the 980 Ti with it's $650 launch price is a great card complain that the 20% faster 1080 for $619 is too expensive. A bit hypocritical, don't you think?

The performance of a GTX 1080 for 619$ isn't that bad, but you are still paying very much money for a mid-range card disguised as high end only to realize that within the next 8 months there will be something much better and maybe even better price/perf.

Looking at the 980 it was 550$ and the 980 Ti was 650$. Under normal circumstances the most expensive cards always deliver a worse price/performance than cheaper cards. Performance in relation to price has a diminishing return.
Like with a Porsche Turbo S compared to a Camara V8. The Porsche Turbo S is like 200K $ and the Camaro 40K$. The Porsche does wreck the Camaro in every possible way, but it isn't 5 times as fast as the price would suggest.

That is why the 980 Ti is remembered better than it actually is. The GTX 980 made it look good. That hasn't happened before. Normally the 980 would've been a 399$ card.

So there will be something better than the GTX 1080. Probably a 1080 Ti. And it will be like 30-40% faster than the GTX 1080. This always happens with Nvidia. Maybe the GTX 1080 Ti will be like 750$ and if it is 750$ and like 35% faster then it has a better price/performance than the GTX 1080.

The biggest problem with the GTX 1080 is that it is pretty short-lived since there will be better cards (soon).

(If I had loads of money I'd buy a sweet GTX 1080, but I don't)

Or don't buy them, and wait for the starving companies to drop their prices.

Worked for AMD, they seem to have learned their lesson.

Dude, if u don't like the price just don't buy it...its just pointless to post it over and over again.

This,
I'm glad I went with the founders edition over waiting for AIBs.
Honestly this card gives insane performance at 1440p.

I might pick up another 1080 FE soon since a few games still dip below 85 frames at 1440p.

If you don't like the price, don't pay for it.
Buy two 980tis for 399 brand new and call it a day.
