Underwhelmed by the 1080 - Page 8

So if you've got deep pockets and think that a 15%-20% increase in frames (which is roughly around a 10-15 additional more frames per second vs. a 980Ti) - then by all means, go for it. I will say this, there are games (mainly DX11) that the 1080 doesn't perform as well as we all expect it to

Well yeah. The upgrade is not meant for 980Ti users. Benches and games show that. If I had a 980Ti. I would have had zero interest in the 1080 and not even consider a upgrade. Maybe to a 1080Ti. If then. It would really have to spank it big time. 970/980 to a 1080 is a BIG upgrade.

I guess the biggest decision variable is how your current system is running the games you have now. If all your games are running at the graphics settings you like at an acceptable framerate, there's no point for now (which is why I lasted on a 780Ti for so long till I went to a 980Ti). But yeah, there's a significant performance jump from a single 980 to a 1080. Usually when Nvidia slaps on the letters 'Ti' - it means it's gonna be expensive as hell. And now that they're pulling this "Founders Edition" crap (similar to the early access Season Pass shenanigans with video games), all that could mean is more $$$$$$$$$ for Nvidia. And hey, they're a business trying to milk money, so good for them (but bad for consumers who want to stick to their brand in regards to GPUs).

If you find the 1080 underwhelming, the problem is almost certainly that you have been fooled by Nvidia's marketing department into expecting the 1080 to be a high end card when it's purely a midrange card and upgrade for the previous midrange card, the GTX 980.

I got a 1080 just for the lawlz, my original intention was to send it back after playing with it for a week or so, but after using it for a day it grew on me. Gave me that little extra I wanted for my 1440p high refresh rate gaming, after I put it under water I can say that I am very satisfied with it!

Also out of the box it was about 5% faster then my custom bios water cooled and overclocked 980ti

Everyone's results will vary. I have a Gsync 1440p ips monitor at 144Hz running on a 980Ti w/cooler OC'd. I returned my 1080 because I couldn't justify $700 for another 7-8 more frames per second. Unless I was obsessively staring at my fps counter on the screen, there's no way for me to tell. Hey, it might work out for ya, it might grow old on ya. I just know I had de ja vu when I bought a 980 and had buyer's remorse when I coulda waited for a 980Ti released shortly after that had a very noticeable performance upgrade over the the 980.

Sure it's underwhelming, but it depends what card your upgrading from really. You shouldn't expect drastic improvements over 980Ti/Titan X cards, but if your coming from a 600/700 series then it'll rock your world.

You're right. It was like when I went from a 780Ti to a 980. I was not blown out of the water with jawdropping results. Going from the 980 to the 980Ti was like night and day though. So I can only imagine Nvidia's Money Model that the 1080Ti is right around the corner.

Nvidia ain't that dumb. Besides, the 1080 is selling like hotcakes. If 980 owners knew when exactly the 980Ti was gonna be released, they woulda held off (at least most people would). Technology is an ever so evolving beast. So something better will always be right around the corner. Not many people will remember that the Pentium 4 used to be a beast of a CPU back in the days. Now that I look back, holy cow, CPUs have evolved really fast thumb.gif

The 1080 isn't "selling like hotcakes" in Europe, it's just suffering from extremely low availability, and stupendous pricing. Ideally the next mainstream high-end card, i.e. 1080 should be priced only a little higher than the Ti MSRP at release. It isn't in Europe, so I can't see many users upgrading from Ti, or SLI 980, 970 setups. I also believe the 1080 Ti is going to have stupid pricing too (the bad kind of stupid), at least until AMD finally stops being scared and releases Vega (which really should have gone with GDDR5X for the first batch, then offered a HBM variant in 2017). At the moment, green team is dominating the high end market because AMD (dropped the ball again) decided to release the RX 480, which is a decent card, but the pricing was too much for what is a card that suffers from PCIe compliancy issues, and could have easily been standardised to the 8GB format (the 4GB cards, all use 8GB from Sammy chips). Many users will stick with the 970 instead of the RX 480, and many will upgrade to the price-cut 970, simply because 4GB of VRAM (0.5GB is mainly used for persistent texture cache, it shouldn't be "3.5"ed, because it is still useful) for 1080p or below. Both the 970 and RX 480 will last for 1080p for the next few years anyway.

The PCIe issues really affected AMD's image, alongside the pricing in Europe, maybe even the USA.
