Swapping for a titan x pascal would be a waste of time and money.

There's nothing wrong with your Ti, 2ghz at 1.06 is pretty average, nothing *bad* about it.

Even an above average chip that does 2050 at would only gain about 2%, so in short it's not worth the hassle.

suppose i do get the TItan X pascal , would it be a downgrade ?

It's a downgrade in the sense that you get lower quality components.

Performance will be the same.
Only difference is an additonal 1gb of vram.

reference GPUs have lower quality components then third party manufactured cards ?

That depends on the make/model.

For example an EVGA Kingpin 1080Ti is going to have much higher quality parts (or higher spec parts) than a normal Nvidia Founders Edition.

However in contrast it's always possible that the lowest spec non reference card that Zotac or Palit do could very well actually have lower spec parts than a Founders.

/\ however another way of looking at it again -- is -- not saying PALIT & ZOTAC necessarily use lower grade parts on their PCB's.. but just using as an example to get the point across.

"Buildzoid" does a lot of good reviews on quality of VRM's on cards.... his videos are definitely worth a watch on you-tube.

i get your point my gpu indeed has premium components ... i think i should stick with my 1080ti

I just want 100FPS on 1440P. I don't game a ton, but I'm on at least 3 days a week for about 2 hours at a time currently (new to fatherhood tongue.gif). I however, don't want my 980s to lose their value before selling them so I'm on the fence of selling now and waiting to buy or waiting to sell right before buying. Advice?

Given that the 980 is already beaten by the 1060, I don't think they can drop in value too much more until Volta releases. Selling them now vs later shouldn't have too much of an impact either way. You've got them under water if I remember correctly so there are still people that will want them.

As far as black Friday deals, GPUs have been climbing in price steadily for months now with no downward movement at all. I wouldn't expect more than 25-30 bucks off frown.gif

You could sell the 980's and trade up to a 1080 TI, and then when Volta comes out in Q2 2018 (still like 6 months away) either keep the TI or sell it and upgrade to an 1170/1180. That's if consumer Volta happens and the ampere rumors aren't true.

Hmmm, thanks. The 980s are actually stock air. But I'm still leaning toward biting the bullet and seeing if I can get a small discount on a 1080 TI over the holiday, then sell the 980s so there is no PC downtime and hope that I get at least $400 back from the sale.

For stock air there's no better time than the present to sell. With Volta the 1150 TI could theoretically compete with the 980, and will have at least 4GB of RAM if not 8.

If you wait for Volta there will certainly be a whole heap of 1080ti's going cheap just before release!
