[Various] GTX 1080 Reviews - Page 592  

post #5911 of 6175
Biting the bullet and getting a flounders edition, I'm not waiting another 6 weeks and Memory Express agreed to price match Newegg, they told me normally they wouldn't, didn't argue their reasoning even though they were in stock and so was newegg...but they beat newegg's pricing by $5...so overall, even though I'm not getting exactly what I wanted I'm relatively happy with the outcome.

So I should have the 1080 in a week. Yay!

And before people lol @ me for getting the flounders edition, I'm just going to set the fan manually to bypass thermal throttling, I don't care if its loud.

Lol. This is how I 'sleep' while working from home after playing 1 too many rounds of BF4 all night.

Titan Black. I skipped Maxwell so this is gonna be a nice upgrade. So essentially I'm going from a 980 stock performance to the 1080 performance. xD

The GTX 1080 is a fine card (besides the price).

He isn't worse than the AMD fanbois that plague this forum. It's as if they were religious fanatics, and that's why it's kinda fun trolling them to some extent.

Ditto with the nVidia fanbois. smile.gif

nvidia= what matters is putting out a card that competition can't touch as of here and now. 780ti-980-980ti-1080 are examples.
amd=what matters is creating architecture that's gonna be relevant for longer while optimizing your cards over the course of time

while this second option sounds great, people with disposable cash (such as myself) prefer to go with a nvidia card and upgrade more often. and because a graphics card is a graphics card, not a car, spending a few hundred every 12 months isn't that big of deal really.

Has anyone here actually been happy moving from TitanX to 1080 or we don't even have such people? Because, I've tried and really, really tried hard and can't see any difference.

I talked to a guy who moved from TX SLI to 1080 SLI and gained 6 fps in 4K
not a big gap by any standards

But to get those "competition can't touch" cards you have to spend at least $500+ (probably closer to $600+ now). And as long as you're not looking at those "competition can't touch" cards, AMD still has a very compelling lineup.

Also I think AMD did what they did because they don't have much a choice. Their limited budget means they have to play the long game.
