What Reviewers Have To Say About The GTX 1080 Ti

The following is what reviewers around the world have to say about the GTX 1080 Ti and its performance.

SKYMTL – HardwareCanucks:

At the end of the TITAN X review I asked a simple question: would I buy it? Back then the answer was a resounding “yes, provided my girlfriend doesn’t kill me”. This time around I’m going to unequivocally say “yes, if you have the money”. However, while the GTX 1080 Ti is a technological achievement of pretty epic proportions, and it has staked its territory atop the performance mountain, I think it will be up to NVIDIA’s board partners to make it truly shine. Regardless of what you choose to do – run out and buy a Founders Edition or wait for the inevitable custom designs – the GTX 1080 Ti has set the bar so high that it will be very, very hard to dethrone.

Kyle Bennett – HardOCP:

Even with the lack of competition in the high-end from AMD, NVIDIA has forged its own path forward and brought a higher level of video card performance to gamers and computer hardware enthusiasts. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti at $699 is a statement of market dominance. It provides 30 to 35% better performance compared to the GeForce GTX 1080, and even beats the $1200 GeForce GTX TITAN X Pascal video card.

Nvidia has kept its promise and the new GPU does perform as claimed. It is 35% better than the Titan XP. With the GTX 1080 Ti, you are paying less for more.

The GTX 1080 Ti is perfect for today’s, and very likely tomorrow’s most demanding games. The huge 11GB VRAM capacity will ensure it can handle 4K resolution with upcoming games. The Ti runs at a high clock speed and even has good headroom for improving performance further via overclocking, pushing it even further into the “awesome performance” arena. NVIDIA isn’t sitting idle, it very much wants to dominate the computer gaming landscape, and the 1080 Ti is a testament to that commitment.

Ryan Smith – Anandtech:

Overall then, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is another well-executed launch by NVIDIA. The $699 card isn’t for the faint of wallet, but if you can afford to spend that much money on the hobby, then the GTX 1080 Ti is unrivaled in performance.

The Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti is a premium GPU for PC enthusiasts that want nothing but the very best but are not willing to pay as much for the Titan XP. That is why this GPU is great value for money and that is why it is very well positioned.

This was our Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti review roundup. Let us know what you think about the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti and whether or not you are interested in buying one.
