Here is another comparison from the Extreme benchmark
I've only tested a few games but I'm so confused. Battlefield 1 with the SLI setup would run a constant 120fps and the 1080 Ti is at 130-145fps with the same settings. Even vram used is similar, before the SLI was at 2.8-3.2gb and the 1080 Ti is at 3.8gb.
Am I expecting too much? The 10-24% increase on graphics test feels like it would of been appropriate for the Maxwell Titan. If I can remember correct, the 980Ti was ~10% over the 780Ti, so why the low numbers a generation after that?
I really want to test this card to it's best potential so that means I need a waterblock and shunt mod to bypass power limits. I was going to wait for AIB boards with better components and power delivery, the more I read I see that Pascal just does not keep scaling with extra voltage and power draw. Also did not want to wait on custom waterblocks so I bought the FE. It's been a while since I upgrade because the SLI setup has practically destroyed anything with SLI support. Plenty of times I read forums and review sites. Vram has never been an issue for me on 2k and 4k and FPS was high enough to drive high refresh rate monitors. I'm not sure what to do besides ask other owners on how they feel because I'm 50% ready to box this card up and return it Edited by imLagging - 3/23/17 at 6:14pm
