If they released the 1080 with the same base clock as the gtx980 would it have been a better card than it is by your criteria of overclockheadroom?
Nothing to do oob performance when talking only about oc headroom. I never said its performance is bad or something.

People who aren't at 4K can easily wait for the real 4K cards like Vega and big Pascal, and will probably ultra all of those titles at 60fps/1080p. The 1080 is a stop gap, not the be all end all..

I can actually agree here. At 60Hz 1440 TitanX is enough. At 144Hz you need to tone down details with either TX or 1080. Neither card warrants me enough performance to jump a resolution or details preset in any game I've tried.
It's a very strange card. Really a good evolutionary jump for those on 980,but considering the price, they could've as well bought 980Ti to get almost the same price.
If 1080 was priced as 980, as it should've been, we would really have a reason to say: "ok, this is a card for 980 owners who wanted 980Ti performance, but not its price."
Unfortunately, 1080 is even more expensive than 980Ti and is actually as expensive as it's faster.

No huge jump to move up the resolution, refresh or significant quality up.
No price drop relative to performance. Actually the price is up as is performance compared to 980Ti.

even though they have been the sweet spot of premium gaming (for both 16:9 & 21:9) for a while now ...

144Hz offer is awful with significant quality issues. 34" is no better: extremely overclocked 60Hz panels that will last who knows how long.

especially with a ton of friggin amazing stuff coming out in q3-4 16"

Could have done so with 980Ti. smile.gif

You should try telling that to all of the people over in the G10 Owners thread who have already done it. I'm sure they will be thrilled to know that the G10 Hybrid cooling that they have attached to the MSI cards doesn't work, even though they're already using it.







35C at 2012 mhz. Nope, that will never work.

No need to be so annoying. I just said so to warn people of possible issues.

So if you decided to open your own business hypothetically and bought chips built a cooler and sold your fully overclocked, volt/bios modded cards to the public that decimated the competition in the benchmarks and they returned or complained about your card not having overclock headroom... Would you agree with their statement? Think carefully, a double-shot of expresso may increase your own overclock headroom biggrin.gif

Holy ..... ..... some of you .... .are arguing about boost clocks now. God ... you guys are ..... ....., how long have we know that nVidia's boost is dynamic and every card will be its own special snow flake? rolleyes.gif

And yet this is whats back and forth discussion for the last 40+ post...

980Ti is only relevant if you already had it

buying a new 980Ti now is stupid

so wrong lol

XB271HU is amazing and so is X34A/P or equivalents .. there also quality TN offers for 2560x1440@144 for both Gsync and Freesync if you dont mind TN

3440x1440@144 is also coming soon



even with PG279Q you can play the lottery a bit and get a good unit without having to whine how 1080p is too low and 4K is too high

a person can have a car that's $50.000 more/less expensive thatn the neighbours car
or have a house that's twice as big/half the size of the neigbour's house

and that is all fine

but God forbid you buy a GPU that's 5 fps faster/slower than other member's one cuz you're gonna get attacked

Now you are a bullying victim too because you can buy expensive stuff?

I bet a lot of us here can buy expensive stuff too smile.gif

I don't think they will, at least not right away. I expect NV to release a 6gb GTX 1060 at $250 to compete with Polaris.
