funny how the graphic havent improved in 8 years yet the requirements have gone up. i played fallout 4 and was disgusted it was so bad graphics. the industry needs a shift. all the developers are lazy.

First NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 3DMark Benchmarks

Quote:
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, 8GB RAM GDDR5X at 10 GHz

I think the most interesting detail about GTX 1080 is the new memory. NVIDIA has finally used 8GB ram for its flagship card. It’s no longer an exclusive to mobile solutions. Additionally, the GDDR5X modules are clocked at 2500 MHz (which is shown as 5000+ MHz in 3DMark). However the effective clock is 10000 MHz, which means the bandwidth is somewhere around 320 GB/s (assuming it’s 256-bit wide).

On the GPU side we have a huge improvement in terms of frequencies. It is said that GTX 1080 can boost up to 1.8 GHz, with base clock around 1.6 GHz. At the time of writing we are not able to confirm the exact reference clock. For such reason I decided to avoid making comparison charts, so this post will essentially tell you what GTX 1080 is capable of and nothing more.
Full article has 3dmark tests.

I'm somewhat committed to getting the highest end ROG one available... somewhat of a treat for myself. Preferably sooner the better as I have no card in my PC atm.

Thoughts on how to do it?

First come first serve at MSY? or Get in very early online with a pre-order?

Or maybe Amazon? - Warranty issues?

All indications at the moment are for a paper launch with very limited availability to start with. So if you need it ASAP, pre-order is your best bet.

yeah it doens't seem like its the huge leap in graphics power everyone has made it out to be. but i guess it just comes down to pricing.

how much was a gtx980 when it was released?

980 $869
980ti $1000

Glad the numbers are not too crazy. No real reason currently to jump from 980 to 1080 just like I had no reason to grab a 980ti. Will be interesting to see where the 1070 lands in price and performance.

i think NVidia cares less about gaming than the compute applications now. They make more from compute i think. But whats good for one is sometimes good for the other, eg. memory bandwidth.

I look forward to 980ti price drops & OCAU being flooded with people offloading lovely 980ti's to microupgrade to the 1080 for benching (yawn)

I'll wait for the 4k benchmarks before committing to that call. Will also be interesting to see the power requirements.

The hardest call is one 1080 or two 1070's
