Official GTX 1080 Product Page

List of available custom GTX 1080 cards with specs, prices and reviews where available.

A list of 1080 Founder's Edition Reviews.. There are 50 reviews in various languages and another 8 video reviews linked to.

In general the GTX 1080 beats the competition by the following:

at 1440p the 1080 beats the Titan X / 980 ti by about 27% and the 980 by abut 60%. The Fury X gets beaten by 43%, the fury by 50% and the 390x by 73%

at 4k the 1080 the Titan X / 980 ti is beaten by about 33%, and the 980 by 74%. AMD's Fury X loses by 43%, the Fury by 54% and the 390x by79%

1080 SLI benchmarks can be found over at Guru3D. OC3D has done a 1080 SLI review with the MSI Gaming X. Finally, TechSpot ran 1080 SLI review with the Palit GamerRock Premium Edition

In short, 1080 SLI seems to only be worthwhile for 4k gaming and is still very much in need of driver improvements.


Official GTX 1070 Product Page

List of available custom GTX 1070 cards with specs, prices and reviews where available.

A list of 1070 Founder's Edition Reviews. 20+ reviews and some video links

At 1080p the 1070 was 18% slower than a 1080, 5% faster than a Titan X, 11% faster than a 980ti, 40% faster than a 980 and 64% faster than a 970. On the AMD side, it was faster than all by 31% for the Fury X, 40% for the Fury and 46% for the 390x.

At 1440p the 1070 was 20% slower than a 1080, 2% faster than a Titan X, 6% faster than a 980ti, 37% faster than a 980 and 64% faster than a 970!! It beat out all the AMD cards again by 21% for the Fury X, 30% for the Fury and 40% for the 390x

At 4k the 1070 was 20% slower than a 1080, 1% slower than a Titan X, 3% faster than a 980ti, 39% faster than a 980 and 79% better than a 970. for AMD it beat the Fury X by 11%, the Fury by 24% and the 390x by 35%

Guru 3D 1070 SLI review using 2 MSI Gaming X cards. Hexus.net also did a 1070 SLI review using the MSI Gaming x card

It will beat a GTX 1080 easily at most resolutions, however it sees negative scaling in some games at lower resolutions like 1080p.

=========================================================

3/1 update Nvidia announced the 1080ti card yesterday. Here is a write up from Tom's of what they said about it. Reference card is going to run $699. As we know custom cards will be less and more than likely worth waiting for. As always as custom models and reviews show up, I will add them to the ever growing list in the posts below. The first post will change to the 1080 ti models once we begin to see them. Guess we will see reviews of the FE and custom models starting next week if that is when the cards are supposed to be released.

=========================================================

I encourage and ask for any links that would be helpful to add to this post. Reviews, benchmarks, rumors (credible ones), models I may have missed and any other 10 series information you may find.

  8. Async compute?
    Reply to ATi RaDEoN
  9. no information about that type stuff yet. hopefully come friday we will learn a lot more. but in the end until someone has hands on a card to test and benchmark, we won't know what it will be capable of. nvidia dismissed all the async stuff when AoS hit the web so they may not be bothered, but then again they may realize it would be a mistake and make sure it is covered.
    Reply to Math Geek
  10. Afaik the point of async compute was to increase gpu utilization. Maxwell might not need it because gpu utilization already good. Also in AMD case they need those async compute so they can access their ACE engine function. This ACE engine are not accessible in DX11. so the performance increase in radeon when async compute in DX12 can also attribute to ACE engine usage. In DX11 this ACE only sit idle doing nothing but keep using power on radeon. Still i imagine this feature might not used in most games. Even one the market only AMD sponsored title have use async compute (to my knowledge Quantum Break on pc did not use async compute).

  11. The sub 75w part will be interesting for sure. currently the fastest sub 75w are those 950 without power connector. Performance wise they are not that slower than regular 950.

    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GTX_950/

    There are talk that GP106 will be 75w only instead of sub 150w part like nvidia previous Gx106 chip.

  12. it's hard to identify which models these are when looking at a site like partpicker. this is one thing i will work to keep straight with this thread. with the forum's help, i'd like to keep a list of each model available and it's power requirements to include connections needed and observed worse case power used when overclocking and torture testing. i'd like this to be a one stop shop for anyone wanting to research and compare the various gpu's and models available. reviews, benchmarks, whatever else comes along that is useful to someone researching these new cards.

    the hard part is going to be something people ask about all the time but is hard to find numbers on. people always ask what older cards in sli would equal a newer card. so would 960's in sli be the new 1070 or what? these number can be hard to come by, especially for cards a couple gens old, but hopefully we can dig up something that is good enough to be useful.

  13. After the release of the 980 Ti, how longer did EVGA take to release the hydro carbon copper cards? Obviously I'm trying to get an estimate for the 1080 Ti hydro coppers.
    Reply to rcald2000
  14. the 980ti was June 2, 2015 for general release. don't know when the evga model hit the streets but this article http://wccftech.com/nvidia-aib-partners-prepare-huge-geforce-gtx-980-ti-nonreference-lineup-hybrid-triple-fan-cards-unveiled/ mentions it on May 31 so it must have planned all along.

  15. It appears that this Friday's Pascal event also will be in conjunction with the first demo of Battlefield 5.
    http://wccftech.com/nvidia-introduce-gtx-1080-gtx-1070-battlefield-5/

    Interesting because this is yet another former AMD Gaming Evolved game that now is (may be) under the NVidia umbrella (Far Cry 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider).

    And then there's this... The Order of 10:

    For sure, I'm trying to figure out if the performance of the GTX 1080 (or whatever they're going to call it) would justify upgrading from my 760's in sli, so I guess one could say is a 980 ti (as it seems that the 1080 is supposed to offer roughly around the same performance as a 980 ti) better than two 760's? At least when it comes to 1440p? I would like to upgrade from 1080p to QHD, I just wonder how well my 760's would fair at that resolution with settings turned up.

    And as I've learned I don't really want to have an sli setup again, I'd rather have a single high-end card.

    I'm open to AMD as well but I suppose we'll have to wait for benchmarks for that, will get a free-sync 2k monitor or g-sync 2k monitor (after having g-sync, I will never have a monitor that doesn't feature advanced adaptive sync ever again) to go with whichever card (pascal or polaris) comes out on top overall

  17. Personally while i'm very interested to see pascal and what new stuff they will bring in i might skip pascal altohger and jump directly to volta later.....that is if volta coming put in 2018.
    Reply to renz496
  18. I can't wait for Volta. Since I'll be staying at 1440p, I don't need many more FPS. However I am very interested in the computational improvement going from Maxwell to Pascal.

  19. the "Order of 10" campaign is pretty neat. different way for nvidia to keep the tension alive before the launch. little bit of fun to keep folks busy before friday. nice one nvidia.

    @opio, i sure hope to be able to add some sli numbers but that's probably going to take all of us to source them. there are a ton of sites out there and i can't possibly read them all. between us, however, we probably get them all read. so long as folks keep posting the valuable information, i'll keep updating the initial posts. i'll add whatever i run across of course but will have to rely on our awesome users to fill in the gaps :D

    and hopefully amd drops Polaris quickly so we can have good info to decide on new upgrades. i'm a bang for the buck buyer and whomever comes out on top gets to go into 2 new builds for my house later this year

    for sure, I figure that two 760's probably give performance somewhere around a GTX 980, maybe a little less, for me it's all about being able to game at 1440p with high settings at around 80+ FPS, I'm sure that the GTX 1080 will be capable of a lot more. Plus also like I said, the setup I have now is the first sli setup I've ever had and I've realized I'd rather have a single flagship GPU than two mid-range cards in sli. But as I also said, if AMD comes out on top I will gladly go with polaris, I was planning on getting a new monitor anyway, it's just a matter of whether it will be a free-sync monitor or a g-sync monitor depending on which card I end up getting. It's nice to talk to another PC enthusiast that isn't a fanboy and lets the benchmarks and price-performance ratios speak for themselves :)

  22. the spec hunters seem to feel that the 1080 will be better than a 980 ti and the 1070 would be better than a 980 is. following that logic, it would seem that a 1060 (ti?) would be similar to a current 970 and may even be under 75w power usage!! if nvidia prices things right, then this could be a very interesting upgrade and cause some serious price drops on maxwell cards to get them out of the system.

    It just makes me wonder if the pascal cards being soft launched this week will have more than a 256 bit interface, would they be faster? I've always wondered in what situations a higher bit interface makes cards faster... all I know is that the Fury X had a 4096 bit interface and it was on par with the 980 ti and the 980 ti only had a 384 bit interface. I guess what I'm asking is this: What does the size of the interface have to do with how powerful the card is?
    Reply to opio
  24. from what i have seen, especially in the case of the fury x, is that vram is mostly needed for high resolutions. the super fast hbm on the fury x let it's 4 gb of ram do a better job at 4k resolution than the 8 gb of the 980 ti. showing that the speed of the ram does have a big effect on performance. a ton of vram at lower resolutions makes little difference unless massive add-on texture packs and mod's are used.

    there are 4 gb 960 cards but benchmarks show that once the resolution gets high enough for the 4 gb to be fully used, the gpu itself is already past the point of struggling and can't keep up. so the 4 gb is pretty much wasted on that card (again unless mod's are used in some games).

    the new 1000 series will use some of the new GDDR5x memory which should be a good bit faster than regular GDDR5. i am going to assume that this extra speed and other performance increases will let the new 1080 outshine the 980 ti in 4k pretty easily. the fury x will probably be dethroned by it until amd releases it's new flagship.

    in the end the super fast ram has the best benefit at the highest resolutions. this is probably why the lowere end cards are sticking with GDDR5 as it offers enough speed for the gpu it is paired with. well that and the cost of the latest, greatest ram would add a good bit to the price of these cards.

    6gb for 980 ti unless their's a specific model you're referring too. But will gddr5x outperform hbm v2? Their has to be a limit to speed over quantity at some point?

    According to the link below, GDDR5X is almost equal in speed to the HBM v1. Rumored GDDR5X = 448 GB/s while HBM v1 = 512GB/s.

    However, HBM v2 will be way faster than v1 so HBM will still remain king over GDDR5X.

    it's believed to be a 1070 and 1080 release on friday with possible info on the whole line-up. but last time the released the titan and then the 980ti son after without really bringing up the 980 ti until it hit.

  29. GDDR5X is fine with me for now, I (and others) are of the opinion that at this point and time HBM2 isn't really going to be needed until about Q4 2017 at the EARLIEST, the only reason I would have wanted HBM2 right out of the gate is it allows for smaller cards since the memory is stacked.
    Reply to opio
  30. it is on the P100 super card so they have it. i'd not expect to see it anywhere but the new titan card if they chose to use it at all. at least this time around. cost is still pretty high for the stuff and yields are pretty low from what i have read.
    Reply to Math Geek
  31. I also have it on good authority that after everything is said and done, that as long as the bit interface is big enough (512 bit bus width) GDDR5X is 30% faster than HBMv1. However I got that data from somebody in the comments section on another site so that could also be baloney, the math looked sound when I went over it though.

  32. I appreciate the credible updates and moderation to keep out the AMD vs Nvidia fanboy shouting match. I'm very excited for the next gen!

    I'm curious how these cards will be priced and where the 1070 will fit in comparable performance to the 900 series. I'm guessing just shy of 980ti with very low wattage requirements. I'm sure we'll have a better idea this Friday!

    More like 980's and then some - at least on reference gpu's - looks like AMD's stuck. Unless AMD really improves power consumption and temperatures of their gpu's they're in serious trouble and we'll be facing nvidia's monopoly in a few years. Really hope it doesn't happen.

    it can be hard but i'm gonna try hard to keep the fanboy's away from this type of thread :) some honest amd v nvidia discussion is welcome but flame wars and blatant favoritism is not welcome here.

    not enough information yet for a similar AMD 400 series thread but as more leaks or amd pr information is released we'll work on a similar thread for those new cards as well. just does not seem to be much to start with at this time. it takes time and a lot of people don't have the time to spend on such a massive thread as this will become over time. the mods are busy enough keeping the forum running so it falls to some other power users to volunteer the time.

    i did read that apple has chosen the new amd cards for the new imacs for this year so that tells me there should be some cards hitting the market soon enough for them to include in this years models. but so far we're all focused on this weeks nvidia announcement and i'm waiting rather impatiently as are most of us :D

  41. Regarding multi gpu gpu maker probably need to create a new one that can fit newer redering technique better? but in the end multi gpu is gpu maker interest (to sell more gpu) and not so much for developer. The feagure is pc exclusive and multi gpu often have problem that did not happeb in single gpu setup. Look at DX12 games. Oxide probably the only one have interest in tinkering with multi gpu.
    Reply to renz496
  42. with dx 12, more of the responsibility falls to the developer to work with sli/xfire. in the past it was up to amd and nvidia to work out driver profiles for specific games. putting this into the hands of the developer should make it easier for more games to include the support but it will also let us see exactly who is too lazy to implement it into their games. they won't be able to pint the finger at nvidia and amd as much now. they'll have to stand behind their choice to not spend time on it or to spend the time to get it right.

    i like it better this way.

    as for actually building a dual graphics pc, it seems that if you don't do it new, then it's very likely you won't do it later. folks love to add the extra psu power and make sure they can handle the extra card "when/if" they decide to go there. in the end, most of the time there is something new available and these people find it easier to just get the new single card rather than an older card that costs the same and then have to fight through the issues we all know are there with running dual cards. many threads a day here asking that question "do i go with sli or just get a new _____?" often the answer is to go for the new single card. it's just easier that way.

    instead if simply calling dev as lazy to me it is more about "why we need to bother with setup that only represent small subset of pc gamer?" multi gpu is pc exclusive feature and on top of that only small group of people who game on pc have such setup. most of the time dev don't even bother to give their pc version of game that can make use pc raw performance then why need to complicated themselves more with such 'niche' setup? think again why gpu accelerated physics are not used outside game sponsored by nvidia when actually there is alternative physic engine that capable of doing gpu acceleration using opencl. some might not agree with me but personally i just think that dev have no interest to support pc only feature unless they were sponsored to do so.

  45. in many years of building pc's i have only ever built 1 system with dual cards. it's just too much of a hassle for many to deal with. most spend the extra dollars on a better single card than trying to get 2 cheap cards to do the same thing. it is def a niche group but still a group that developers should not totally ignore now that it is up to them. give it a year and it'll be pretty easy to enable some standard sli/xfire support once they figure out how it all works. it'll be there.

  46. Just a quick question here, does 970 sli make sense? I already have one 970 and the motherboard and PSU capabilities to run another, but most people make sli sound very unreliable and not worth it. Thoughts?
    Reply to MnMWizard
  47. if you are comfortable with troubleshooting the set-up and keeping up with beta drivers, then it is not as bad to deal with. that and the fact that not every game is going to be sli capable. for an average user who is not comfortable troubleshooting and such, it is not worth it. but if you like to tweak and toy with the system, then it is worth the time. the question is, is it worth the money for a second 970? we'll know a bit more in the coming weeks as the new cards are priced and benchmarked.

    970 sli brings a decent performance boost but will it compete with the new single cards? might get the same increase with a new card for similar price or a bit more. that part is up to you. as i noted a few posts ago, often the answer is the new single card is better for the average user than the tricky sli set-up. there have been times that reviewers here and other places could not even get it working enough to benchmark it. if these experts struggle at times, how will us mortals fair? :)

    Looks like the reference 1080 will be clocked north of 1.6Ghz with a boost up to 1.8Ghz :ouch: So we should see 2Ghz clocks when custom cards show up. The GDDR5X will be 10Ghz effective.
