Anything slower than that is bargain bin fodder.


Personally, I think anyone who claims the fastest card on the market is "midrange" needs to go look up the definition of the word "midrange", and see if it applies to the fastest or best anything you can currently buy. I can assure you that there is no definition in the English language where the word "midrange" can be accurately applied to the 1080. It is neither the mean performance of available cards, nor is it mean price of available cards. But some people with a silly agenda to push or a serious screw loose like to misuse the term.

Basically these type of people would say that the $1.5 Million Ferrari LaFerrari is a midrange car because in a year or two Ferrari will produce one that is faster and more expensive.

EVGA have stated that they are only shiping EVGA store preorders initially, and partners later.

It's interesting to see that almost every game with a working SLI profile is CPU limited until 4k resolution. Several games they tested do not appear to have a working SLI profile. The cards are clearly running in single GPU mode.

The one game that appears to both be working right with SLI and is pushing the graphics hard in every resolution is The Witcher 3.

I can live without your sympathy when the games I play have close to perfect scaling. BF and GTA scale really good at higher resolution

Wow! Some of you really take the "midrange" thing personal huh? The 1080 is considered a midrange die. Nvidia is charging flagship prices though. Anyway, this has been beaten to death enough. I think it is fair to say that no matter what the card is considered, it is the fastest single gpu on the market at the moment.

By who exactly?

Someone who doesn't like their pricing? I can assure you no one in the industry is referring to it as such.


And no, I don't take it personally, I just find it intellectually insulting. Even my 14 year old daughter knows what the definition of "midrange" is, and knows that there isn't any measure where it could be applied to the 1080. It is not the middle, mean, or median of anything currently on the market.

"The midrange is a type of average, or mean. Electronic gadgets are sometimes classified as “midrange”, meaning they're in the middle-price bracket. The formula to find the midrange = (high + low) / 2."

Well the same thing has been being said since the GTX 680 so I don't know where you have been? Any Gx104/204 chip is considered midrange while the Gx100/110 chips are considered the true flagships. All the 1080 is is a node-shrunk 980 with stratospheric clocks to brute force it to beat (barely) GM200. 5 years ago you would've bought the same GPU in a GTX 460...
