Some informative videos on the new Pascal cards coming out soon (GTX 1080 and GTX 1070) and how they compare to this Maxwell based group of cards on sale here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


95% of the people posting in this thread are confusing the following graphs:

"Relative VR Gaming Performance":
https://www.extremetech.com/wp-co...TX1080.jpg

"Relative Gaming Performance":
http://images.anandtech.com/doci/...80King.jpg

Pay special attention to the y-axis label.

These 2 graphs were presented during the nVidia conference, and for whatever reason people keep ignoring the latter graph and citing the gtx 1080 as having "2x the performance of a Titan X", when it clearly was shown that that is NOT the case, no matter how you interpret the 2nd graph. This is only true of the VR gaming performance, however it is not true of regular gaming performance (which is of concern to the vast majority of the posters in this thread).

I will break it down for the misinformed.

Referring to the 2nd graph above:
o Titan X has "Relative Gaming Performance" of approximately 3.7
o gtx 1080 has "Relative Gaming Performance" of approximately 4.4

This results in the gtx 1080 being approximately a conservative 19% improvement over the Titan X (it's safe to assume that the gtx 980 ti is roughly equivalent to the Titan X, as the specs are nearly identical).

Referring to the 1st graph above:
o Titan X has "Relative VR Gaming Performance" of approximately 3.8
o gtx 1080 has "Relative VR Gaming Performance" of approximately 7.5

This does indeed equate to approximately 2x the performance of the Titan X, however this is in VR applications.

Very luke warm deal now that it's known a GTX 1080 for 599$ or a 1070 for $379 can outperform a titan X or a 980 Ti.

1080 versus 980ti

May 27 is release day.
Not waiting for 1080 to release in a month is the dumbest thing a person can do right now.. Hold onto your money people

Before people say the GTX 1080 will be out soon, etc. etc., you should note that this card is about the equal of a GTX 1080 based off early leaks and benchmarks and it is also less.

great price on the GTX 980 ti. Prices should drop some more now that GTX 1080 is out.

Great price on the 980 ti. Almost pulled the trigger for the upgrade but had to resist.

you sure? if ppl can wait for a whole year, then they can wait for another month.

So tempting, but I do think I will wait. By the way, I know it's not much, but you can get the extra $5 off with the retailmenot coupon [retailmenot.com] (in store only).

I am going to wait, My next setup will be 6700k with overclockable mother board, 16GB RAM and a 1070 GTX. Hopefully by that time, VR hardware will be better too.

i would wager it is about 10-15% faster tops. Also if i were on the fence on upgrading then i would wait for the aftermarket cards. they are always better and faster than reference cards and usually only $20-30 more

For whoever does not have a MicroCenter close by - try Staples 110% price match. If you have some luck (I mean you in a state that Staples doesn't charge tax), you get a price better than $470.

Between what cards? I also agree to wait on the customed cooler cards.
