If there were more GPU company's this would not be a problem.Originally Posted by Ghoxt
With Pascall known in the sense that Nvidia has it fully. This is unfortunately a game to nvidia to milk every actual dollar out of GPU buyers over the long haul.
If there was any actual reason to believe Polaris wad dropping sooner than later we would have seen the hammer drop from Nvidia.
Being that it's not, Nvidia will incrementally milk this cow. Look at Kepler...and that was bad.

Anyone else? Meh, guess I'll wait another year for an actual upgrade.
Took a look at this site, they do a horrible job of displaying what it's actually benchmarking, if you go through and read (as with most reviews that are in depth) they eventually say as you scale up resolutions the separation in performance becomes higher and higher, jumping from 14% higher than a 980TI OC at 1080p to 27% or higher at 4k, I've read other sites too which basically show most things only about a 10-15% difference (semi underwhelming) at 1080p, but as you go higher in res then you have bigger texture packs etc and the differences were getting closer to 40% different at 4k-5k from the 980TiOriginally Posted by Desolutional
Definitely underwhelmed. Saw this being posted around: http://www.computerbase.de/2016-05/geforce-gtx-1080-test/12/#diagramm-gigabyte-gtx-980-ti-gaming-oc-vs-gtx-1080-oc-benchmark-part-1
Comparing an overclocked 980 Ti to the 1080, normal and OC'd. Disappointing to say the least, and I doubt it's driver issues as nVidia has been most likely pushing 1080 updates in the last few months of driver updates anyway.
They lied about 980 Sli performance, I like their cards, but I can't stand their CEO or company. http://www.overclock.net/t/1600415/guess-ill-be-waiting-for-the-1080ti-titanOriginally Posted by blampars
Of course you're underwhelmed. You've got a Titan X, and others here have 980Ti's. Despite what NVIDIA said (we all should know better, here) - What exactly did you expect, actual miracles??
I've got SLI 780's (non-Ti) - I'm damn excited to get a 1080. 980 SLI performance+ out of 1 card. I can get rid of the hassle that is SLI and finally power my 3440x1440 ultrawide easily. Sign me up.
Um.. I don't think the 1080 series is really meant to be a super upgrade for 980 Ti owners. I think it leans more towards being an upgrade for 7xx and 9xx non-Ti owners.Originally Posted by Cyph3r
I was definitely underwhelmed by the 1080 considering how fast that hype train ended up going. The Gigabyte 980ti is so damn close it doesn't even feel like an upgrade.
Though I will say that I'm reserving further judgement until the non-reference cards come out. Gigabyte should be able to do something pretty special with the 1080 surely.
