To All The People Who Bought a GTX 1080 - Page 2

post #11 of 63
Anyone who has payed attention to tech the last couple years knew that there would be a Titan released after the 1080.
I was in the market for a new card, the 1080 fit my budget and the announcement of the Titan didnt cause me to regret my decision 1 bit. It does what I need and was at a price I was comfortable paying.

Computers and cars are my big ones. Not super crazy with the car tuning, but I do spend a few bucks on it. Hell, my tires alone cost over $1000 a set on my car. lol Money is a relative thing. Some have more than others. Some are also better at managing it than others.

This is what finally made me realize it's time to move on.


They actually did release all the way up to Crimson Edition 16.2.1 Beta for the HD 6000 and 5000 series, but they didn't brag about it:

Release notes: http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMD-Radeon-Software-Crimson-Edition-16.2.1-for-Non-GCN-Products-Release-Notes.aspx


The driver works with Windows 7, 8.1 and 10.

nvidia usually has the decency to allow the mid range cards hype to cool down before releasing the big chip.

this time it's not so.

i wonder what caused this?

could it be that hbm2 is too far away?

Serious question.

No. Dual 1070's here, still cheaper than a single Titan X (new). No regrets, and it's incredibly fast.

Crimson Edition 16.2.1 Beta has the newest version of the UI, HDMI audio driver, etc., but the actual display driver is still 15.3 if you have an HD 6900 series card or older.

Since when are GTX 1080s/1070s considered "mid-range"?

The 1080/1070 are considered 'midrange' in the nVidia offerings because the Pascal chip used is a midsized chip. The Titan and 1080i will use the large Pascal die, making it the upper range chip. 1060 and lower are on small die chips.

The 1080 costs at best half the Titan X and at worst $500 less. I don't think that anybody is thinking that they made a bad deal. Nvidia is increasingly making sure to space out the cards more and one of the effects is that people won't feel cheated.

I'd go as far as suggest that people who bought a 1080 wait until next year for Volta. There's already a rumour going around that Nvidia will want to use the 16nm node to its full potential before the 10nm one is ready and that the current Titan X isn't it.

Small correction, you mean 15.301.1901.

But still, is that numbering indicative of anything when the release notes say that they fixed a lot of issues with contemporary games, including Fallout 4 and this year's already Rise of the Tomb Raider (28 Jan, 2016) and even includes a Crossfire profile for Far Cry Primal, so unless that is all wrong, is the driver really outdated compared to the release date of the suite? It seems like it is coherent with its release date (March 1st).
