Underwhelmed by the 1080 - Page 5

post #41 of 127
In the same boat.

I cant throw away my Titans for this. It appears I locked myself into an upgrade cycle of sorts where only worthwhile upgrades come with either Titan or Ti in their names.

980 msrp 550
780 ti msrp 700, -5% perf

1080 msrp 600/700
980 ti msrp 650, -12.5% perf

Not really, but then the upgrade from 980->1080 is about as large as the path from 580->680 and from 680->980. The only thing I dont like is the inflated price, it really should have been a $500 card.

I'm going to wait -- not necessarily because of what we got in the form of the 1080, but because game-wise I can't justify its performance delta over what I currently own.

There simply isn't any Crysis to resolve at the moment.

LMAO, 1080s are now listed on overclockers.co.uk.

£619

Are you having a laugh Nvidia???

That's £160 more than I paid for my 980 at launch.

£619?

Let's assume the 1080 is 20% faster when both Ti and 1080 are OCed.

That places the Ti at a nice even £495.20. Looks like Ti owners don't have much to worry about unless nVidia starts skimping on Maxwell which they shouldn't as they are no longer supporting 3-way+ SLI.

I'm more excited for AMD's Vega, methinks there's something they've been hiding from us. If Polaris hits the sweet spot of £250, nVidia are going to have a serious reckoning come Fall.

And that's the cheapest one. some of them are £649.

When I went from a 980 to a 980 Ti, I definitely saw a noticeable upgrade in performance. I'm running on a 1440p 144hz monitor and for the most part, I can run most of my games beyond the magical 60fps boundary. When I got my EVGA "Founders Edition" 980Ti from my local Frys Electronics store and popped it in, I saw MAYBE a 10%-12% upgrade in performance. I'm talking maybe 5-7 more frames per second than usual which is definitely underwhelming (especially for $700+, it's like I paid $100 per extra frame per second). On my 4K television, the performance between my 980Ti and 1080 were negligible, almost identical to be honest.

I ended up returning it because this was definitely not the huge performance upgrade that I saw when I went from 980 to 980 Ti. $700 is a lot of dough to throw away for an extra 7fps at 1440p. Even at 4K, I really didn't see any noticeable difference in performance with the human eye. If you have money to burn or you're coming from a 980 or lower, you'll definitely reap the benefits of getting a 1080. But if you're a 980 Ti owner like me, it would be smarter to hold off and maybe wait till the 1080 Ti is released. The first versions of any GPU series are usually the guinea pig cards

I can also confirm the price of the 1080 in the UK is absurd £600+ for a non high end gpu

In the United states it's not too bad

Price is a joke here in NZ.
Got my 980ti for $1150 when it first came out. Currently cheapest ones still $800, Waiting for that price drop to $600 and ill pick up another one.
