    If it gives the performance it claims, the price is very reasonable.

    I'm definitely upgrading to the 1070.

    That's cool.
    It's been a LONG time since the last series upgrade!
  7. If benchmarks line up with what they're claiming, the 1080 may be a day 1 purchase for me, assuming I can find it in stock.

    I guess that depends on which Pascal card (1070-1080, 1080 Founders Edition), whether you have U.S. dollars to spend (I don't) and a consideration of what the price/performance might be for newer technology (a 1080TI or Volta/Vega) which should be available early next year.

    Seems there is now a $100 U.S. premium on an overclockable Pascal. So looking at the 1080 Founders Edition that $699 U.S. is $900 Canadian. I have never seen CDN prices as a straight conversion, always seem to be priced higher. It wouldn't surprise me if that overclockable 1080 goes o the market for $1,200 CDN, after 16% sales taxes.

    The 1080 standard edition is expected to be no faster than an overclocked 980TI. The overclocked 1080 is expected to be 15% faster than an overclocked 980TI. We will have to wait for the real game benchmarks but see these comments from the guru 3D forums:

    Used 980TI's will soon be flooding the market at very reasonable prices. That's also something to consider especially since a 1080TI or Volta should be coming next year. As one member on the Guru forums put it:

    NVIDIA Introduces GeForce GTX 1080 [​IMG]

    For me, that's $1,200 on a card that might age like milk! I find the purchase of a video card a very personal decision. There is no right or wrong, it's what your needs are and what makes you happy. I would simply suggest to anyone to do their research, knowing what's available and what may be coming, if you can wait. Additionally, I haven't seen much about how the 1070-1080 is handling Async Compute or any additional Direct X 12 feature level. The 1080 Founders Edition did, however, perform very well in Tomb Raider (DX12) from Nvidia's presentation.

    Smart move for me would likely be a used 980Ti, a 1070 or even a Polaris 10 and/or to wait to see what's available in 2017. Not saying I'll do that because gaming is about fun.*Smile

    Generally, however, I find $1,200 for even a high end video card a bit much. My winter car cost me less than that and causes me no problems whatsoever, no stutters no driver crashes and no blank windows 10 start screens*Wink

  9. I had money earmarked for a new GPU anyway this month, so I'm at the point of deciding between getting a second 980Ti for SLI or going with the 1080. There's so much unknown right now, since reviewers are under NDA, that anything like those Guru3D posts are really just educated guesses. Rumor is that the NDA lifts on the 17th, so hopefully we'll know for sure soon. Personally, I'm leaning towards just selling my current 980Ti and going with the single 1080, just because of all the funkiness I've had with SLI in the past.
    blackroseMD1, May 7, 2016
  10. Ya, no way I will be going with a multi gpu configuration. Not clear to me how many DX12 games will support it and I certainly won't pay $1,200 times two.

    Indeed we need to see real world gaming benchmarks. This slide, however, from Nvidia was impressive. That's benching the founder edition.

    NVIDIA Introduces GeForce GTX 1080 [​IMG]

    Did you see the 1080 founder edition running Epic's Paragon demo? It was running at 2.1GHZ and the 5X memory was running at 5.5GHZ. All this at 67 degrees celcius. That's insane.

    I assume if you move from a 980TI it will be the 1080 Founders Edition. Nice. I have to see numbers and reviews as well. Who knows, maybe I'll join you. Don't you think going with a second 980TI is a little boring *Sleepy. Besides, based on recent history, that second card will be sound asleep in most DX12 titles.
    specialkone, May 7, 2016
  11. I'm looking at the Founder's Edition, but I've never been a big fan of the reference model style. I may hold out for a nice EVGA 1080 with an ACX cooling system on it. Yeah, another 980Ti would be a bit boring. It's pretty funny that Nvidia chose this month, right when I'm getting ready for another GPU, to release their new cards. It's almost serendipitous. hahaha

    If you are going by performance and the 1080 is twice as fast as a Titan X at roughly $500 less money, that's a good deal. Whether it is, in fact, twice as fast as the Titan, time will tell. The Titan X is around $1150 (US) right now. The reference model 1080 is supposed to be around $650 from what I've seen. So, the 1080 sounds like a good deal to me. I am not saying I intend to buy one. I am going to wait and see, and also may just wait for the 1080 TI and see what it's like. I'm in no hurry, and doubt I would buy the reference model anyway. My 980 Classified does everything I need right now anyway. I'm not in a hurry and can tell you I won't be a day 1 purchaser. But, if I can get twice the performance for close to half the price, I consider that a good deal.

    It's just wonderful when you hear something like this that basically dumps all over the £2000 desktop scrimped and saved for over a couple years and still only a few months old - it all moves too fast and unfortunately the wallet cannot keep pace. Whether it be PCs, iPhones, iPads, TVs etc - I know things have to move forward but shame it's so quick!
    Scottyboy99, May 8, 2016
  14. So that will mean it will be around 750-800? Well... I will be impressed!

    Just a straight conversion from USD to AUD is $960.00 as of today. Then, if the Australia tax is added, I can see this BIG card being WELL over $1000.00

    Eventually, people here in OZ will give up on wanting one of these cards, far too much to spend on them and they have a life expectancy of about 1 year before the NEWER one comes, what ever that be. *Sad
