    After upgrading my old X58 setup with another cpu, SSD´s and so on. I made a dession to take the last step and replace GPU´s as a last thing to do before moving on to a new platform.

    But also to try single GPU for the first time since GTX 285 where the shit to get and i am tired of running out of Vram. And here GTX 1080 TI looks to be the sweet spot to replace GTX 970 SLI. GTX 1080 non TI does not give more the ekstra performce i want over GTX 970 SLI.

    But is there any thing i shut be aware of with moving to Pascal. Here i think about things like does it even run on PCIe 2 and how about bottleneck?

    Does any one have any experience with GTX 1080 TI/pascal on this old platform.

    But your system is X79 based and i wanted to know about X58. None the less good to know it runs on this platform cause then i might also run on X58.

    You'll be fine. 2.0 x16 is like 3.0 x8 which NVIDIA cards are perfectly fine on.

    I'm running a 1080Ti on an X58. No problems here, if you can go for it. I also ran a 1060 with no bottlenecks at all. With this, you might see some bottleneck at lets say 1080P medium in Superposition, but it's been fine everywhere else.

    No. I'm nearly certain nvidia cards still have legacy bios modules.

    Great. Just what i wanted to read.

    I can and will if it work. You are the living prof then that it works on X58. Just what i needed.

    Then there is nothing else to do than wait for Zotac GTX 1080 TI MINI hits the stores. Its the only GTX 1080 TI that fits in my case, they others are to long.

    I've tried a GTX 1080 with my X5650 clocked at 4 GHz for a day. It was a really pleasant experience, framerates were high and stable, and the only game that had a lower framerate comparing to my 5820K platform was GTA 5, everything else ran flawlessly.

    Awesome. No wunder with GTA V, that game just sucks cpu power like an alcoholic drinking he´s liquid.

    X58 should be fine on a 1070/1080. My I7-920 was great for a long time and if I had to, I would still rock one today.

    I have ran a gtx 1080 on an unoverclocked x5670 and it was fine, almost no difference, except with warhammer dawn of war 2. My r9 290x got twice the fps on that game with my 4790k vs my 5670 and gtx 1080 for some reason. Still that was ultra 1440p at at least 80fps iirc but still kind like what the heck. Point is I'd save your money for something more useful, like food or a car or something.

    1080 TI is a great deal faster that RX480 and by that needs more CPU power to feed it but if that cut run so can pascal. But year either my old I7 920 or my current I7 980X have no trouble feeding my current GTX 970 sli.

    Well its not GTX 1070/1080 but GTX 1080 TI. I think that will also be fine.


    Thats is impresive if a stock xeon can feed a GTX 1080. Then overclokked I7 980X shut feed a GTX 1080 TI just fine aswell. Save my money. no thanks, im tired of running out of Vram. Im done with mid end GPU´s. Its whas the same problem with GTX 660 TI sli i had before. I hope with GTX 1080 TI that have 11 GB vram will last longer before i need to replace it.

    Honestly cpu bottleneck is over hyped. My xeons beung just fine with a few rare exceptions us one of the reasons why in my mind the 7700k has no merit versus the ryzen 1700. Honestly if you're willing to I'd wait for volta at the end of summer. If not get a 1080 ti now. Vega will probably either a. Not be as good or b. Be insanely expensive due to crypto currency mining.

    I'm a little surprised by what some of you guys are saying to him because if i recall 6 months ago i was asking if by just going by a w3520 (i7 920) to a X5660 i could have enough power for running a Fury X.
    Now i come here and i see people saying that with is X58 chipset he can run just fine with a 1080TI .
    How is that possible that i could not run a Fury X with my previos system and he can?
    I really wanna know.

    X58 is an amazing chipset. It's literally just awesome. It runs my gtx1080 just fine, in addition with having 24 threads and 72gb ram

    Some people said that there will be a massive bottleneck, I didn't listen to anybody, bit the dust and bought the thing. Couldn't be happier.
