  1. 1080x2 is getting 70-80fps at 4k on current games, so likely games in the next 1-2 years will be below 60fps.
  2. That would certainly be a capable setup, but of course comes with the usual 'SLI disclaimer'. If you want it now, great, but if you can wait for awhile, it will be worth it for the single GPU ease-of-use.

    You also, in the wait scenario, get the benefit of being able to SLI a much more powerful GPU so if a single 1080ti is someday found lacking......you can add another one.

    I currently have a 4k monitor and a single gtx1080 and I get 60fps in almost every triple a game.

    What settings do you usually play at?
  5. ultra, though once in a while if i'm playing something like battlefield4 and there is a lot of explosion my fps might drop to 50 but other than that 60fps.
  6. It's overkill 1080 sli. With a single 1080 you should have around 50 fps at 4k maxed out. But if you are thinking for 8k then wait for the 1080ti or go sli. You should have around 30fps at 8k.
  7. What does a single 1080 do max settings on crysis 3 and witcher 3?
  8. wait for the titan xp/1080ti both should be 4k ready cards

    Running two EVGA 980ti cards in SLI and get 60fps in most games on ultra in 4k. Have a 4k dell monitor, and even with DSR set to 4x resolution still maintain 55-60fps in the Witcher: 3. 60fps in GTA5, Shadow of Mordor, RainbowSix: Siege, and Fallout4. All settings on, everything up. Even skyrim with 180 mods, 70gb worth of texture mods and an ENB will run at 45-50fps. Stock clocks on the cards, air cooled atm, 6700k i7, 16gb 3200mhz ram, 1tb ssd (2x 512gb ssd, none raid) and 1050w power supply.
    My intentions are to keep the cards through this generation and water cool them at some point within a year, and start running overclocked cards, potentially skipping the next generation of cards as well and making it to the 1200 series or equivalent. At that point single card 4k gaming at 60fps should be a reality, especially with a titan or something like it that which in theory will have 16-32gb vram talking faster than anything we have now. Some people around have shown that over clocked 980ti cards can be as fast as the 1080 cards. That being said unless you already have 1 980ti then its harder to say, as 2 1080 cards are more than 2 980ti cards. Not by much, and some places have the 1080 cheaper than the 980ti, or the same price anyway. If you are aiming at 2 1080ti cards than the price will definitely be more, as the 980ti should drop in price on its release. It really depends on what your current setup is. If you have a 600 or even 700 series card then just wait for the 1080ti cards, especially if you don't mind spending the cash. If you already have a 980ti then buy a second one when the 1080ti is released for ~$350-400 and just wait for the next generation. Personally I have been nothing but happy with the 980ti, and even SLI isn't as bad as the internet makes it sound. 90% of games work with very little interaction on my part. The most I have to do is open the cotrol panel and make sure its enabled after a driver update. And the few indie games and older games I play that don't support it don't really need it, Savage Lands for instance is more than happy to run at 4k on ultra at 60fps+, same case with Rust, and some other games like those. In the end it comes down to the amount of money you want to spend for performance gained. Right now the 1080 is running 30-40% more fps than the 980ti in MOST examples. The 1080ti should net 60-80% gains. But the 1180ti or titan of the time will net 120-150% gains, and when out will be close to what you'll pay for a 1080ti now. If you want the largest bang for the dollar and already have a higher tier 900series than it makes sense to me to wait instead of immediately jumping on that wagon. If nothing else but for the fact that if the 1080 is so good how good will the 1100 series be on a whole? But, if you have a 6-700 series and want performance sooner than the next generation of cards than get the 1080ti x2, just hold out instead of getting the 1080. There is a substantial gap between even the 980 and 980ti, one would think a similar gap will occur with the 1080ti.
