    GTX 1080 compatibility


    Hi.

    I have a system with an i7 6700K, 16 Gigs of DDR4, Win 10 Home and a GTX 1080

    However, the GTX 1080 will flicker and refuse to install its drivers if paired with a Ryzen 5 2600 on a B450 motherboard so I had to buy a Radeon RX 5700 XT for that system, that works very well with Win 10 now but I am just puzzled

    I have another system, an intel system that I wish to use the GTX 1080 on, this time its an intel based system, a mini ITX board designed for 8th and 9th gen intel chips and I want to give it a Core i5-9600KF + Win 10 Home since the PC Build calculator tells me that this is the cheapest 9th gen intel cpu that can keep up with a GTX 1080.

    But will I run in to trouble? I mean the GTX 1080 runs on the system with the i7 or atleast it did until its power supply died.

    Its just that I've had so much trouble with that i7 system that Id rather if I could use the GTX 1080 in another system.

    The incompatibility with Ryzen, is that to be expected?

    All my windows 10 systems are updated to version 20H2

    I have the following Win 10 systems:

    A Ryzen 3 3200G system with 16 GB of memory,
    A Ryzen 3 2200G system with 16 GB of memory,
    A Ryzen 5 2600 system with an RX 5700 XT and 32 GB of memory (current main rig),
    An intel system with a cheap celeron 'gold' CPU on a mini ITX mainboard with 16 GB of memory,
    An i7-6700K system with a GTX 1080 and 16 GB of memory (former main rig),
    Two gaming laptops each with 16 GB of memory,
    An all in one HP with a radeon GPU and 6 GB of memory,
    A HP desktop core 2 duo with a radeon GPU and 6 GB of memory,
    A Yoga laptop with 4 GB of memory,
    various older systems

    Nvidia GTX 1080 performance issue.

    Original title: NVidia GTX 1080 Running Slow

    Hi,

    I have recently finished building another PC the components are.

    CPU: Intel 5820K

    GPU: GTX 1080 (Asus)

    Ram: 32GB

    MOBO: Asus Sabertooth

    OS: Windows 10 Pro

    I did have a GTX 770 installed until the GTX 1080 came out but i'm not getting very good graphic response. I use my PC for work for editing videos and Photos but it just doesn't seem that powerful and is performing on par with my old GTX 770 witch is a massive
    step underneath the new GTX 1080. I don't have any idea why its doing this unless is a Windows Driver Issue i cant seem to find anyone with the same problem, please help if you have any ideas!

    Thank you for your time.

    Rob

    Nvidia GTX 1080 performance issue.

    When you installed the GTX 1080 card did you uninstall the driver that was installed for the GTX 770 and then install the driver for the GTX 1080 ?

    If not, try that, using the latest driver from NVIDIA for the reinstall that supports the GTX 1080 :
