I call it synthetic because I don't know anyone who actually plays it. Not to say that people don't, but as far as I'm concerned, a game that you use for a benchmark? Synthetic. A game that by nature is CPU heavy and doesn't scale consistently....yeah...

Well, it's a good thing my local electronics store had a 14-day return policy. This was definitely not worth the 'upgrade' from a 980Ti I was looking for. It was tough to part with it but at the same time, $700 for maybe 7+ more fps than what my 980Ti can already dish out doesn't seem logical. I dunno if anybody experienced the same thing, but I saw little to NO difference in performance at 4K playing Rise of the Tomb Raider with my 980Ti and 1080 FE (maybe 3-4 fps difference?). In fact, my 1080 was blaring the fan at full blast and I couldn't understand why this card was getting hot quicker at half the power that my 980Ti draws (and that's after the latest driver update). I never learn my lesson which is this: "It's probably not a good thing to pay premium price for a reference card." rolleyes.gif

I also had some time with a 980 Ti prior to my 1080 and I agree the difference in performance isn't going to blow you out of your chair. I didn't see much of a gain in Arkham Knight (a game notorious for optimization troubles) but I did see a nice, noticeable boost in Doom. With the latter, I was able to maintain approximately the same frame rate after raising the graphics settings from high to ultra.

If your FE was getting to 100% fan then you either have bad airflow in your case, high ambient temperatures, a defective card, or some combination thereof. The out of the box fan profile of an FE is quite conservative which is why they reach the 81*C threshold and begin to throttle. Even with a more aggressive fan profile I would call the fan audible but not loud.

maybe you should have gotten an AIB 1080 with a good quiet cooler ?

the card would also be more stable then, keeping a consistent ~2050+ boost with a 11000 memory, which would give up to 20% increase over an average OCed 980Ti

but yeah its still not that much

The airflow in my case is fine. I've never had any of my previous cards (780Ti, 970, 980 and now 980Ti) go outrageously hot. It also helps that my 980Ti SC has the custom AIO cooler from EVGA slapped onto it so it never goes beyond 60C. I will say that I've never had a great experience with reference cards (with an exception of my EVGA 980Ti SC where I slapped on the cooler). The OC potential is lacking (from my past experience) and 3rd parties always come up with more efficient cooling and custom boards that are more OC-friendly. It just wasn't for me. As for 20% increase, that's a 'meh' upgrade. I did however see a noticeable upgrade going from 980 to 980Ti though.

we already knew its a ~20% increase of OCed 1080 over OCed 980Ti since the first benches came out in May .. the fact that 980Ti OCes so well and 1080 can still beat it is pretty great to me

and obviously a reference cooler is going to be much worse then a custom one unless you really need a blower cooler


from a 80Ti the only large upgrade is always to the next X80Ti

Early, 2015 --- I bought my brand new Palit Jetstream gtx 980 and I payed 548 $ for it (not in US). A reference card from Palit, was priced at that time around 575 $ (price during hype).

 

Now, 2016 --- Zotac GTX 1080 AMP! Edition is priced at 830 $ (same country, same store). A "founders" Palit is priced at  782 $ (price during hype). And these are the cheapest prices (most are 900 ish $). That FE crap nvidia pulled, was genius. Milking Perfected!

it happens.

Sadly the GTX 1080 FE was "tuned" for first impressions and reviews. Sadly at the cost of the consumer.

It's a good thing you can still return it smile.gif
