Oh, here's another over-engineered GTX 1080 being choked on its own power draw limits.
I know right. All thanks to Nvidia's "Greenlight Program".

Nearly $700 for a card that can only deliver 1080p console levels of performance at 4K...no thanks.

But yeah either way that little GP104 is a beast, if I was in the market I'd just opt for the cheapest AIB solution I could find, they all perform much of a muchness after all.

Hey Wizz about the copper heatsink on the back of the gpu did you force a constant speed on the fans to find out if it had an effect on Temps? I know most gp us have pre detemend fan curves that go off temp, just wondering if you accounted for that variable on the testing.

With all the drawbacks the 1080 has and expectations of a 1080ti why would anyone want this?

Good thinking, I'll test this later today.

Hey Gigabyte, guess where "do you even lift bro Eagle" mascot puts your card on my list? The bottom along with anything MSI covers with a dragon bigger than an inch tall.

Hey W1zzard, what was the reason for not using the latest Crimson ReLive driver version? Is there some bug or hiccup that it introduces into your testing?

I retested two weeks over the xmas holidays, haven't had time to spend another two weeks on retesting without any significant changes.

Will retest around March, with new games

Thanks! I know it annoys the hell out of me when I have to rebench right after a new driver release.

Thanks very much for the review!
on the overclocking page:
BF3 from nvidia fe card with 142,6fps
giga aorus with 154,2fps
giga aorus max oc with 167,4fps my question:this small overclock gives 13,2 fps more - am i right to say this comes mainly from the memory overclock?

TIA

That 125fps framerate cap on Infinite Warfare is really annoying. When I replace my busted GTX 1080 I'll want to let the framerate go as high as possible, especially as I have a 144Hz monitor which it will likely be able to reach. I'll have to see if it's possible to remove that cap.

Nice card in the review though. This range is definitely a contender to replace the two crappy Palits which failed on me.

Buying a 1080 now at those prices is asinine when a possible 1080ti is coming in March (rumour central).

Yes, quite. If you see my update in my dead 1080 thread, you'll see that I said I am going to hold off buying a new card for 4-8 weeks for exactly this reason.

Umm, do you game on consoles at 4k? Probably not and kudos to you if you do, it's definitely not great. I have the card right below this and it does great on a 55'' Samsung KS8000. Good luck getting a console to handle that.

You can wait 4 years and get a much better anything, what's your point? So many people play the waiting game and it's kind of silly. Sure, you wait a month and you save 100 bucks for current cards, wait a month and spend the same amount on the next gen of card. It's not really going to be a night and day difference either way. I'm at a point financially where I can just buy the next gen card when it comes out and have both or a backup. The investment doesn't hurt me enough to make me wait, plenty of other people are in the same boat I am.
