Well, the FE models are really only 15% faster at best when you consider overclocks everyone should be running, or at least people here are running. 980Ti runs 1500MHz all day long easy, 1080 FE throttles to 1650 no matter what you set after a few minutes.
I still think it is pretty good that the new card is still a bit faster even with a few less cores and a big chunk less back-end resources. But doesnt change the fact that the FE models a lot of fanboys bought are really only 15% faster. It is kinda sad really that people ran out immediately to spend so much money on such sucky versions of the cards.

Ill have to watch the whole video to be sure, but I dont think the cards were actually tested at the same TFlop level like is claimed. Notice how the graphs are just at the same MHz speed? That doesnt mean equal TFLops since the 980Ti has more cores it also has more flops at an identical speed. So it looks like the 980Ti actually had an advantage. Edit: never mind, I see the graph with identical flops now.Edited by EniGma1987 - 7/28/16 at 6:06am
