Questions and Answers

  • Question: Hey all,
    Quick question, and I haven't been able to locate this particular answer through various searches:
    I currently have an EVGA Titan X, and while watching the E3 shows I got wondering if it would be beneficial to upgrade. From what I've gleamed from benchmark charts, it would appear that the GTX 1080 would be an upgrade, but what I'm having a hard time telling is if it would be a worthwhile upgrade. Sure I could wait till the next model, but then I could wait for the next model after that...and so on and so forth. Lets be honest....we all love getting that new video card.

    At this point, would you consider the 1080 to be a viable, worthwhile update from the Titan X?
    At it's current price point, getting a second one to SLI later down the road is not out of the question either. I'd just like to hear what other people have to think.

    Thanks again y'all!

    Answer: Well last year I had bothe the titan X and gtx 1080 with a ryzen 1600, here is my firestrike results for both

    In all fairness I would not switch from a titan X to a gtx 1080. Both graphics cards are fully capable of pumping the FPS maxed out at 1080p even 1440p. The titan X has comparable performance to the 1070 which I also have tried https://www.3dmark.com/fs/9530767 . The main let down for the titan x is that if you are using the reference cooler it will throttle a little bit reaching higher temps and cause it to dip in FPS in games. Not to many but enough to make it fall behind the 1070 as such. The perfomance gain to me would be negligible, I would hold the horse and see what Nvidia have to bring in the upcoming months as I am certain that what ever they have to offer say 1180, will be somewhat considerablately more powerful than Tx and worth the jump.

    So my two cents is pretty much don't worry about upgrading as of yet, you most likely wont notice the differenceand not worth while. When or if the 11 series hits and as speculated costing to much that would be a good time to purchase a reduced 1080ti if budget holds ( as when I got a 980 ti for £270 new when 10 series launched.)

  • Question: Hi everyone,

    I am getting my HTC Vive soon and I need to upgrade my GPU from a GTX 1060, because it seems like supersampling makes a HUGE difference in image clarity and crispness.

    Which card will be good for supersampling and will the upgrade from a GTX 1060 be justified?
    I don't have the money for a Titan X pascal though, so this is out of the question.

    Maybe should I wait for the 1080Ti? But I don't want to spend more than about 750$ on a GPU anyway.

    And last but not least-do you really think I should invest so much money just for supersampling?
    Because the GTX 1060 can handle VR very well.


    Answer: The 980ti released at 9 I believe, the Ti version will most definitely be released march-april around the same time as Vega, as the coolers for the 1080ti have already been unofficially released, as seen here, which shows a Gigabyte Aurus cooler on an undisclosed graphics card launching 'soon'.

  • Question: I have a titan x now, so buy second one?
    Or sell one, buy a GTX 1080 with it.(can sell it for the price of a 1080)
    And maybe buy a second one some time after?

    Help appreciated

    Personally, what I would do and what I have actually done ( I had a 980 Ti ). Is to wait for the Next Titan or 1080 Ti.
    Even though the 1080 is a better performer than the Titan X, TBH I wouldn't say it is worth the upgrade.

    It's a difficult call to make. After overclocks and such the difference between the 1080 and a Titan X/980Ti is what...15-20%? If you need the extra power from the 1080, I'd suggest selling your Titan X and picking up the 1080. If you can get another Titan X at the cost of a 1080 or less, then maybe running 2 in SLI will be worth it???

    By the time the 1080Ti or next Titan comes out, your current card won't fetch as much if you want to sell it. I honestly wouldn't buy another Titan X for SLI.

    I hear Nvidia wants to focus on 1080 SLI - they mentioned they want to do more focused attention to SLI configurations this generation, so maybe it would be best to drop the Titan X and get a 1080 now and a second one later.

    I know someone that's dumping his 980 Ti, getting the 1080 and when the 1080 Ti comes out, he's dumping his 1080 for the Ti version. So, there's always this option as well.

  • Question: I have a gtx 1080 and i was wondering
    Are 2 gtx 1080's stronger or weaker than 1 titan x

    Answer: What @Slumy_57 & @RobCrezz said. You're going to be at the mercy of SLI support in the games, & (unfortunately) the trend over the past couple of years is to let SLI support slide quite a bit (in a few games being so non-existent that SLI actually sees the performance drop).

    That being said...the Titan X (Pascal) & GTX 1080Ti are more powerful than your current 1080 (http://www.techspot.com/review/1352-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1080-ti/), but the question is whether the extra performance is truly worth it. Techspot's review says that, on average, the 1080TI provides ~20-24% more performance than the 1080. That's technically true; although the increase at 1080p resolutions is technically only ~13%, that's primarily because DOOM has a 200FPS framecap; both the GTX 1080 & 1080Ti hit the cap at 1080p, & while the GTX 1080 doesn't quite make it there, it's fairly close (177FPS), while the 1080Ti is still capped at 200. On the opposite end, even with the extra performance there were still a couple of games (Deus Ex: Mankind Divided & Mafia III) where the 4K performance still isn't quite at the "single GPU" level, & even on some of the other games you're not going to max out your 4K/60Hz monitor (the 1080Ti only had 60+ FPS at 4K in 10 of the 19 games).

    The biggest reason I can think of for possibly switching is to allow for smoother performance. That "20 to 24% improvement" figure pretty much holds true not only for the average FPS in the games but also the minimum FPS. When Techspot tested it, the GTX 1080Ti was able to maintain a minimum of 60FPS in all 19 games at 1440p, & 8 or 9 of the games at 4K (I say "8 or 9" because it was able to hit 59FPS minimum in Titanfall 2, which to me is close enough to include). So if your games aren't as smooth onscreen as you'd like, the 1080Ti will help out there.

    That being said...

    Unless you're going to sell your GTX 1080 & get some decent cash for it, buying a brand-new GTX 1080Ti just for a 25% performance improvement is basically just spending cash for bragging rights. If your system needs some improvements, the cash might be better spent on other parts.

  • Question: what advantage does the 1080Ti have over the old Titan X Pascal 2016 ? would it be wise in switching to the old titan x pascal 2016 from a 1080ti ? is this titan x better in overclocking ? i am using a zotac 1080ti amp extreme core edition and my chip is soo bad at overclocking ... can the old titan x pascal be overclocked to reach new titan Xp 2017 ?

    Specs-for-specs, if you are to compare reference GPUs, Titan X Pascal vs GTX 1080 Ti, then, the GTX 1080 Ti has a slight advantage on Memory Clock Speeds, Memory Bandwidth, Core Clock Speeds, Processing Power and Texture Fill Rate:

    VRAM Size: 12GB (Titan X Pascal) | 11GB (GTX 1080 Ti)
    Bus Width: 384-bit (Titan X Pascal) | 352-bit (GTX 1080 Ti)
    Max. Effective Memory Clock Speed: 10GHz (Titan X Pascal) | 11GHz (GTX 1080 Ti)
    Max. Theoretical Bandwidth: 480GB/s (Titan X Pascal) | 484GB/s (GTX 1080 Ti)
    Core Clock Speed: 1471MHz - 1531MHz (Titan X Pascal) | 1481MHz - 1582MHz (GTX 1080 Ti)
    Processing Power: 10.1 - 10.9 TFLOPS (Titan X Pascal) | 10.6 - 11.3 TFLOPS (GTX 1080 Ti)
    Texture Fill Rate: 317 - 343 GTexel/s (Titan X Pascal) | 332 - 354 GTexel/s (GTX 1080 Ti)
    Pixel Fill Rate: 136 - 147 GPixel/s (Titan X Pascal) | 130 - 139 GPixel/s (GTX 1080 Ti)

    Rest of specs are virtually the same (Note that these are reference/founders edition specs).

    The main disadvantage of the Titan X Pascal is that it is exclusive to Nvidia, meaning, there are no AIB/custom models with better cooling and/or performance components unlike the GTX 1080 Ti which has a reference model AND a multitude of aftermarket models to choose from (Asus, EVGA, Galax, Gigabyte, Gainward, Palit, MSI, Zotac, etc.).

    Aftermarket models perform far greater in power (e.g., more power phases and better voltage regulators, additional 12V sockets, etc), thermals/cooling (e.g., heat pipes, thermal pads, better fans or liquid cooling option, etc), and performance (e.g., higher clock speeds) due to customized components used by such manufacturers. This translates to better overclocking capabilities and higher frame rates/rendering power compared to those reference models.
