NDA ends in 30 minutes. Will keep on updating thread once they come in.
Looking at the first review that posted before NDA though, its looking really good

Translation for that review so you can figure out the games:
Quote:
奇点灰烬 = AOTS DX12

古墓丽影:崛起 = Rise of the Tomb Raider DX12

孤岛危机3 = Crysis 3

GTA 5

使命召唤:黑色行动3 = COD BLOPS 3

辐射4 = Fallout 4

极品飞车19 = "Need For Speed 19"

全境封锁 = The Division

Will the custom pcb cards take more power? If so good, but complicates the block issue if all different. Unless there is a standard.

That's the same with any card ever released.

Reference design (or "founders edition" in this case) vs custom PCB.

If the 1080 is this fast the 1080TI will be like 50% faster than the 980TI. That would be a nice upgrade.

Obviously. My concern is there would not be much point n putting a block on a card with 1 8pin as temps would not be the limitation, if you can only get a custom pcb with a 6 and 8pin then finding a compatible block could be an issue.

You can draw more than 150W on 8pin. It depends the gauge of wire used. Worst case: wire warms up. Extreme case: you melt the connector.

I am not trying to burst your bubble but...

the full revision of GP100 is not going to be full blown, aka its cut down at 3584 cores. And usually first that came out is Titan at $999 or more.

At 3584 cores its going to be 40% more shaders as compared to 1080, BUT.

1) Its going to come in lower clock due to TDP restriction. A P100 Tesla is already hitting 300W. Titan will need 250W or less for NVTTM stock cooler to be valid.

2) Same as reason above. The stock cooler are poor, somemore the card is coming in 6+8 pins connector which is alot more restrictive than the 8 pins connector on 1080 given the overwhelming SP / DP unit around. OCing is going to be a major letdown

3) Potential Voltage lockdown on big GP100

Its going to be a poor overclocker for a massive die like GP100. Dont expect too much miracle. The power it generate is pretty scary if you actually infer from the 1080 power chart from chiphell.

TLDR: Dont expect anywhere near 50% boost, unless the swtich to HBM2 does something miracle.

So, this GTX 1080 is exactly what it was expected to be. Roughly ~25-30% better than the 980 Ti, for 50$ more. And its not even the final form! What are you getting excited about, this is just as good as the first AMD Phenoms... Neither good, neither bad, just ... meh.
