GTX 1080

Nvidia GTX 1080 was recently showed and we got to know that it has amazing price to performance ratio. The card is more powerful than the mighty Titan X and GTX 980SLI. Naturally, it also defeats the GTX 980Ti and costs only $599; less than most GTX 980 Ti variants.

Those who purchased a Titan X, 980 or 980Ti recently must be feeling pretty frustrated right now. GTX 1080 is a Pascal based beast with 8GB of GDDR5x memory.

Now unless Nvidia brings price down drastically, the future is looking bleak for 900 series overall. The wost part is that even the $379 GTX 1070 can perform better than Titan X, GTX 980 and GTX 980Ti. The good news is that benchmarks aren’t yet to arrive so we don’t know the exact margin of difference between Pascal and Maxwell based cards, so there is hope for 900 series owners.

At this point, if you are thinking of upgrading to a 900 series card, especially, a high end one like GTX 970, 980 or 980Ti we recommend waiting for Nvidia GTX 1080 and GTX 1070.

GTX 1080 releases on May 27 while 1070 is coming early next month.
