NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 / Core i7-6700K @ 4.00GHz

With some tuning, the GTX 1080 makes the most sense for gamers with 4K monitors. Though serious gamers hardly play at 4k. In terms of memory, the GTX 1080 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2016 .

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti / Core i7-4790K @ 4.00GHz

It is worth noting that the GTX 980 Ti is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the GTX 980 Ti 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like GTX 980 Ti requires careful thought. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2015 .

1x GTX 1080 Ti without a doubt. If you need benchmarks there are plenty around the internet for 1x 1080 Ti vs 1x 980 Ti, but very little comparing 2x 980 TI. Although they would all only be 1080 Ti Founder's Editions. I'd wait for the aftermarket 1080 Ti to come out and grab one of them, a problem with SLI is the scaling can cause issues in many games and in some it's just not supported at all. You also get double the VRAM on the 1080 Ti even tho you probably won't use more than 6GB on the 980 Ti most the time. (VRAM does not combine when running more than 1 card). Hope this help

*Edit* Wow so many answers within 2 minutes haha, there were no answers yet when i started my response :P

Currently have an MSI GTX 980 Ti 6G. I can go SLI with another 980 Ti for 400-450 bucks or I can wait for the price of the 1080 to go down and get one. Which should I do?

You Already have a 980 Ti, Probably like you said can get another 980 Ti for 400-450$ heck maybe even a used one for cheaper if you are welling to look around im seeing around the 370-390$ range. I would advise to just get another 980 Ti since you already have one think about it:

you can either Sell yor 980 Ti add up on it and get a 1080 Which is pretty nice OR buy another 980 Ti (which will probably be around the same price after selling your existing 980 ti and adding up more money to get a 1080) for extra performance !

that is only my opinion though :P

I have a 980 Ti SLI config right now. I was wondering if I can sell one of the 980Ti and get a GTX 1080 to run with the remaining 980Ti in SLI?

Is it possible?

Unless its changed over the past few months, no. You cannot SLI two different GPUs.

There has been talk about it in DX12, but even if it works, there arnt enough DX12 games out there to make it viable.

Stick with your 980ti SLI, the 1080 is only 20% faster than a single one anyway.

Hi All-,

So I just purchased a 2nd hand MSI 980ti 6GB. I'm wondering if its worth it seeing that theres an 1080 out there. Can you advised if I should return this and get a new 1080? TIA.

No. If you already have the 980ti in hand, a 1070 will not benefit you (unless you're doing VR stuff). Stock vs stock and OC vs OC, a 980ti will be as good or better than a 1070, at least through 1440p (4k is where they swap places, but it's still close). The only things a 1070 will bring to you is a new warranty and lower power consumption.

The 1080 Ti is going to be about the same performance (give or take) as SLI 980 Ti's but without the SLI hassle. Basically it comes down to your thoughts on SLI and how much you want to spend (a second 980 Ti being cheaper than a 1080 Ti).

I don't play World of Warcraft but I game at 1440p with a single 980 Ti and I average about 55FPS in The Witcher 3, 58 FPS in Rise of the Tomb Raider and around 60 FPS in Fallout 4. All graphics settings at maximum. A GTX 1070 will be a little faster than a 980 Ti and a GTX 1080 will be 30% or more faster.

I'm about tp purchase the Acer X34 (3440x1440, 100 Hz) and wanted the hardware to support it. The GTX 1080 just came out and it's for around 650$ (aftermarket coolers). The 980 Ti on the other hand is for 500$ right now on Amazon and looks like a great deal. Should I buy one GTX 1080 or two 980 Ti's?

Hello,

I have a EVGA GTX 980 ti FTW would it be worth the hassle of selling my 980 ti and then buying a GTX 1080. I don't plan on getting a 4k monitor and currently on play at 1080 144hz. I was thinking about maybe getting one of those 1440 165hz monitors but am unsure. Would it be worthy upgrade or should I wait for the 1080 ti or whatever it will be called.

Thanks

Hello everyone,

I bought myself an Asus PG348Q and want to update my GTX 770 GPU.
Should I buy a used GTX 980Ti for around 300 bucks or a new GTX 1080 for around 650?
I mainly use the setup for gaming (PUBG CSGO LOL) and semi-professional 4k-Video Editing with Premiere Pro (Usually working with proxies). Got the i7-4770 Processor. PrePro is to my knowledge not that GPU demanding.

Thx for inputs!

The 980 ti is plenty for those games and will pair well with that CPU. As long as your were able to video edit with that 770 then the 980 ti should have no issues. If your buying the card in person just make sure it works before completing the sale.

I'm looking to upgrade my computer for the new wave of 4K gaming on the horizon E.G. Destiny 2. I'm currently running a single GTX 980 super clocked and I've had no issues at all with it it's a great card but I think it's time for something new need a few years now. Would SLI with the 980 even come close to the 1080 or the 1080 Ti is it just not worth the hassle at all and just drop the big bucks?

Also is the 1080 TI worth the extra money from the 1080.

Definitely go for the 1080 if you have the budget for it its a killer card that absolutely hammers the 980 and the price gap between the 1080 and 1080ti is way too high imo to justify buying the 1080ti

So right now I have GTX 1070 which I can sell for 550$ in my country then I thought
I can replace it with 2 used GTX 980 TI including warranty for 600$
First
Will those 2 gtx 980 ti give me the same amount of fps like the gtx 1080 ti?
Second
Will my CPU(I5 8400) bottleneck gtx 980 TI SLI?

The reason I wanna do that because for 50$ I can get a bigger amount of FPS in games and I always wanted to have 2 GTX founders edition in my PC build so it will match with the rest of my razer equipment

Hi

I'm going to be doing a gaming PC build in mid-late July, probably with the GTX 980 Ti. Should I go for a 1080p or 1440p monitor? I'm probably going to be mostly playing GTA V with maybe some other games.

Incase you are wondering, these are some of my to-be computer specs:

Motherboard - Asus Z97 Pro Wifi-AC Motherboard
CPU - Intel i7 4790k
RAM - Corsair Vengeance 16gb DDR3 1600Mhz

I'm not on a very tight budget, but price will have to be a factor.

Thanks.

With a 980ti I would go for a 1440p screen, it's a bit of a waste at 1080p.

I have a 1080p monitor and Im thinking about getting at GTX 980ti. I am wondering if this is overkill for a 1080p. However, I would like the possibility of upgrading to a 1440p monitor or even 4k. For the moment anyway I want to be able to run games at MAX @60fps and I mean MAX so no turning down any settings and getting a constant 60fps. I also want this card to be good enough at 1080p for the foreseeable future.

So taking my situation into account do you still think this card is overkill for me.

I have an i5-4690k as well... Thanks

It is overkill for a 1080p monitor, but is perfect for a 1440p if you want to upgrade to that, at 4k you would need two of them to keep max settings and keep 60 FPS.

that being said you SHOULD be able to keep 60 FPS with max settings @ 1080p for 3+ years with this card if that is the goal.

hello i already have a GTX 980 Ti ... and WQHD Monitor ... new games are a little slow on (8x) and very high on WQHD so i want to ask about these 2 ways : which options is cheaper and give me more performance ?

1- Get another GTX 980 TI and Use SLI
2- Wait for GTX 1080 and Get 2 GTX 1080 and SLI

980 TI (bit) is 384 but 1080 is 256 and i know 1080 is faster than 980 ti ... but 980 ti is faster in heavy game moments because of 384 bit power ... so i think get another 980 ti and SLI and wait for 1080 Ti is better option than get 1080 SLI !!! what do you think?

I'd say neither, 980ti users should skip 1080 and wait for 1080ti at least.

I'm personally running 144hz 1080p with a 780ti and have been tempted to get 1080 but since I can still run new games on very high settings/fps/hz, I'm waiting for the 1080ti which will be crazy fast, you should at least wait for the next TI, in the mean time tune your games for looks/performance, 8x AA at 2k is very taxing.

About the bus comments there isn't a moment where 980ti is faster than 1080 when they are overclocked that's just how it goes, similar to how the 384bit bus on a 780ti does not beat the 980 at much and the gap between 1080/980ti is wider.

Hi Guys

Running two GTX 980 in SLI on 6700k @ stock 4.0Ghz

I have a very well cooled case, and the GPUs are both on water cool blocks, so not loud and not hot.

Just for sake of looking to upgrade, I really can't find any really good FPS benchmarks in comparison of 1 x 1080 ti versus 2 x 980's (not ti) that show if it's worth it. I know I can recuperate some of the price of selling both cards (with the closed loop water blocks + fans) but not all of it.

Is it worth looking at? Anyone seen a clear comparison?

Thanks for the help.

Sure its nice, but not really necessary, and no I was referring to another commenter saying that you are probably only using one card, that's not how SLI works. For the most part, they more or less take turns rendering frames, so both are being used equally but there is still a limit to it's usefulness, and that is in cases where SLI does not work.

I would say only upgrade if you are unhappy with your current performance.

For example. I had a standard 2560x1440 60Hz monitor and a 1080, the 1080 was blowing EVERYTHING away, I was even able to play BF1 on Ultra at 125% render scale at 60Hz, I then upgraded to a 3440x1440 100Hz monitor and then the 1080 was having a little trouble running a few games, nothing terrible (BF1 had to be set to 75% render scale), but not what I was used to or wanted. So I went from a 1080 to a 1080 Ti just barely more of a jump from 980 SLI to a single 1080 Ti. But now I can run BF1 on Ultra 100% render scale.

I have a desktop setup with two GTX 980s in SLI (not 980 Ti, just regular 980s). However, I'm tempted to ditch the SLI setup in favor of a more simple, easier to manage single graphics card, the new GTX 1080 Ti. My question is this: on paper would a single 1080 Ti be a better option than 2 980s in SLI? Like, so far as speed, smoothness, manageability, power consumption, game performance, etc...? If you were in my position would you do this?

p.s. Yes, yes, I am aware that the 1080 Ti has not been released yet so real-world tests are not yet available. That's why I said 'on paper'. I'm not as good at reading the numbers as many of you on here.

No one knows, there are no benchmarks yet, so "on paper" doesn't even exist. For what it's worth, if the 35% over the 1080 is correct then a 1080 ti should have about the same or more raw horsepower than 2 GTX 980s and, given that the 1080 is already about as fast as 2 980s in SLI in a lot of games, the 1080 ti can only get better. It all depends on whether it's worth 0 to you, that's not a small sum of money when you already have a powerful setup.

Since the benchmarks are out now for the 1080 I was wondering which would be better for me, I'm a big VR guy and i plan on getting the oculus, but which setup would be better for VR, the sli setup would be good because the prices will come down in like a month or 2 after its released and it will be good because each graphics card can take on an eye of the VR experience. On the other hand there's simultaneous multi projection which will make the 1080 crunch up any VR game. But at a 600-700 premium. So what should I do guys? Also are there any benchmarks out there putting these 2 setups head to head? So which one would be best for me? Any advice would help :P

the 1080 has a HUGE advantage in vr and sli isnt even always used in vr. the numbers nvidia were braging about were vr tests. i would keep the 980ti till a good 1080 comes out then get that

Good Morning,

I want to preface this with the fact that I realize I need to wait longer (for benchmark testing); however, I wanted to get the ball rolling on my question:

Recently (1 week ago), I purchased an EVGA GTX 980 Ti FTW edition on amazon (understanding that the new cards were coming out soon, but I had a buyer for my old card and some amazon credits, so I pulled the trigger on the 980 ti). As many of you may know, EVGA has a "step-up" program and I am wondering, if I have a chance to "step-up" to a GTX 1080, is it going to be worth it to go from a 980 ti FTW to 1080?

Any thoughts or advice on this matter? Thank you in advance!

GTX980 = 16 SM units x2 = 32
GTX980ti = 22 SM units + %50 = 33 + plus the added memory bandwidth.

If the 1080 is 50% faster that puts it only a few percentage above GTX980 SLI

Wait until some real world benchmarks. Nvidia will have used ideal conditions to show off the best numbers.

Yup another one.
Q: I'm Canadian,so the prices for me are...
980 TI: 2
1080: 7
Prices are CDN (CAD), with tax and shipping included, the 1080 is using the converted 9usd price of when the non-FE are stocked.

1440p monitor so going to be only be gaming in 2K.

Is the ~5 extra worth getting the 1080 over the 980ti?
I don't understand why benches dont include 1440p results, they go from 1080p straight to 4K, 4K is not game-able on single card setups, even the 1080 cant do solid 60s at 4K.
If 980 ti, can anyone recommend a good brand, didnt realize there were so many.
Also heard the Zotac AMP 980ti has artifacting issues?

Sorry if this is the millionth Vs. you've read this week.

If you want 1440p 60Hz then 980ti is more than enough. f you want 1440p 144Hz then 980ti is still good but better yet 1080.

I have the 980ti and play my 1440p monitor at 120Hz, in BF4 I get a solid 90fps. For me, thats enough. However, if I didn't already own the 980ti I would get the 1080. It would push BF4 over 100fps and with the new BF coming out soon I would need an even better GPU (I assume).

There are tons of benchmarks with the 980ti vs 1080 on youtube. There shouldn't be much for 1080p cuz who would be stupid enough to buy a 1080 for 1080p gaming?

Zotac isn't common in North America but it is popular worldwide. As long as their warranty is good, go ahead and get the Zotac.

I've saved a bit of money to upgrade my graphics card but I cannot decide on which one to buy.

I'm gaming with a 1080p 144hz monitor with a GTX 970.

I was leaning towards buying a GTX 1070 but I've just seen that the 980 TI has had it's price slashed drastically, and is around £30-50 cheaper than the 1070.

Although that amount of money isn't an issue, would i see such a drastic increase in performance if any if i choose to go with the 1070 over the 980 TI?

Furthermore, which is also a better future investment?

Thanks!

The 1070 without a doubt. While there might not be a very large performance difference today, older Nvidia cards underperform in DX12. This has been fixed in the new architecture. So, as DX12 games come out, the performance difference will increase significantly.
Plus teh new card draws less power and that means less heat and noise.

Hi, i have a question about my GPU.
First of all i want to tell that i can buy a new gtx 980 for 325 euro's (278 pound) (362 dollar)
And my question is should i get a second msi geforce gtx 980 gaming 4g for 325 euro's or buy a single gtx 1080 or wait for the 1080ti (price/value)
Secondly my question is; is my power suply good enough to operate the 2 gtx 980's
-------------------------------------
System specs:
Asus maximus hero v2
i7 4790k (not overclocked)
seagate baracuda 2tb & samsung evo 840 (250gb ssd)
Msi geforce gtx 980 gaming 4g
16gb corsair vengeance 1600mhz ram
corsair h115i cooler with standard fans
2 frontfans, 1 back fan and 1 at the bottom of my case (so with the 115i included = 6 fans total)
no dvd writer etc.

A single 1080 will offer 980 SLI like performance without the caveats of SLI. SLI will still limit you at 4 GB of RAM and many top tier games are now using 6 GB or more of textures (ROTT etc.).

It will also do so with significantly less power/heat.

I sold my 980 for about 400 and bought a 1080 for about 1050 (AUD) so it cost me about 650. The longer you wait to sell your 980 the less you will get. 1080 is a great card for me for 1440p 144 Hz.

The Ti is going to be less impressive than it was in the 980 vs 980 Ti in terms of improvement. I think 1080 is more worth it price/performance.

Hi Guys.

Will GTX 980Ti overkill at 1080p at 60hz monitor

My specs are

i5-4590
8 GB RAM
ASUS H97 Plus motherboard
1 TB HDD
Benq RL2455HM 1080p @60hz monitor

Will my specs bottleneck GTX 980Ti

Will GTX 980Ti will fully support DirectX 12 for coming days?
Is it future proof?

I play games like the latest multiplayer AAA titles like BF4, BFH, Arma 3, BF3 and some GTA5 as well. But I would love to max out all the settings. Even want to raise the resolution scale in BF4 to at least 150%.

So is this card great for all my AAA games? or I should wait for Pascal, coz when Pascal is release the GTX 980Ti and other NVIDIA card prices will come down a bit.

Thanks and any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks for reading and your time.

Go for the Gigabyte G1 and an EVGA Supernova GS 550 to power it.

So i ordered an ASUS STRIX gtx 1080 for 0 (0 after rebate) from amazon a couple days ago, but it is out of stock so it wont ship for probably at least a couple of weeks.

I found a used EVGA 980 ti superclocked on craigslist for 0 obo, but i can probably get it for 0. He stated that he used it in SLI configuration and it was almost never above 50% load.

I was wondering which would be the better deal in the long run. I would like to eventually get a vive or oculus rift, and I also would like the card to last at an absolute minimum of 2 years, preferably 3-4. I have a 1080p monitor right now, but i might upgrade to a 4k in the future.

I understand that the one on craigslist is in fact used and does not have a warranty, and the 1080 will have a warranty. Based off this info, what sounds like a better deal for me?

The 980ti came out in June of 2015, so that used card is potentially 2 years old today. Happy birthday.. What the owner hasn't told you is usage. It might have not seen 50% use, but how often was it used. With an sli setup it's doubtful the owner was a part-time gamer, so it's probably a safe assumption to see several hours a day, 7 days a week for 2 years. And how much OC did it run with? This card probably didn't see easy highway milage, it saw heavy off-road milage, punished hard, no matter what owner claims. So how much is left on it before it goes bunk? Impossible to say. And there's no warranty. No recourse if it dies next week.
Stick with the 1080, you'll pay extra, but the benefits are covered.
