1080ti or keep my MSI 980 gaming 4gb SLI?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Pretty much what the title reads. No one has really pushed out any benches comparing the two configurations. I'm not planning on SLI for the 1080ti.

Figured I'd ask the expert and enthusiasts. Thanks in advance!

If you're running at 1440p or higher, it should be a significant upgrade, even in scenarios where you were maxing usage on both cards previously.

One of the big benefits you would gain from a 1080Ti upgrade is the ram, 11GB of GDDR5X @11GHz is a massive difference from the 4GB of slower ram on the 980's.

Plus no more sli woes, etc.

And the umpteen other benefits of this new beast.biggrin.gif

I upgraded from a 390 and doubled my fps at 1440p. Hands down, one of the best upgrades i've done.
