NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 was announced recently. Today, we have the first review! Performance is incredible, doubling GTX 970 performance levels. Efficiency is also sky high, nearly doubling everything we've seen from NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture. Our GTX 1080 review compares 10 cards in 16 games at up to 4K resolution.

Overpriced shit in India, showing @ Rs. 80,000 (1180 $) ..

Hopefully Polaris will be available under 350 $..

Great job from Nvidia, now it's better AMD to make a good move, cause we need better prices, in some places this GPUS will be too overpriced.

Are all reviewers instructed by nvidia to bench against stock nvidia cards? I hope you stick to that when benching future AMD cards too.

the power usage is stunning here.

as someone who sees a 50W jump in power just because a webpage has a video ad, that 7W power use for bluray is incredible.

No, I've benched like that for 10 years I think, you are the first to negatively comment on that.
All comparison cards in the review are reference version. When no reference version is available I go out and buy the closest one and clock it at reference clocks.

It looks just like expected to be honest about as fast as 980 sli performance and 20-30% faster than a 980Ti

but it looks like the rumors about the board power limiting overclocking are true(founders version will have the better board)

but pretty expected none the less.


not bad at all

edit:

Did not see that the GPU reviewed was the founders version, looks like non reference is going to be what to buy

Hmmmm I was going to get ultrawide freesync monitor and something from upcoming AMD line-up. But I don`t know anymore. GTX1080p is really impressive but still I don`t want to pay extra for G-sync crap.

Extremely impressive piece of kit, looks like the 1070 is gonna kick my 980 Ti in the teeth too and for a fraction of the price and power consumption.

Can't wait to see what the custom AIB partner cards will do.

Fantastic performance, but the cooler and price tag really don't impress. I really hope we get 599$ custom AIB cards with the capability to keep those 2100 MHz Boost OC clocks Nvidia showcased. Which leads to the question, how did that Nvidia OC demo show such low temps if it was supposedly a reference cooler used? Does the cooler operate at such low RPM by default and the OC was done with 100% fan?

In reality I expect AIBs to price their custom cards for 700€+ here. :(

Anyway to tell if async is real or maxwell style supported?

Not really worth replacing my two 970's with one of these, looks like that will only come once the 1080Ti lands, oh well.

Well, DX12 was used on Tomb Raider and it didn't do well there... no wait, it romped home. DX12 doesn't need massive Async workloads, it's only one part of the API.

But I agree, it would be good to see a heavily AMD biased title tested.

Looks pretty good. I'm interested in the 1070 as that's more in my wheelhouse based on price. Think I may go Nvidia this go round.

Welcome to the club, you had to choose from two GPU makers now you have to choose what monitor you want with your video card.
There goes my ideea to SLI two GTX970, i will save money and buy a single 1080.

No plans to add Ashes, feels more like a synthetic benchmark than a game. Next addition will be DOOM
Aw, no DX12 runs for Hitman?
Edit: Ah its buggy - reread the thing

Just wanted to see Pascals async compute capabilities. Could be maxwell style implementation with just raw power thrown in.

Certainly is impressive the jump the 1080 has over the 980. It's also impressive that the 1080 (stock) runs around 15-20% faster than my 980Ti (overclocked) on most games benched here.

I'm curious as to what the 1080Ti version can do. If the performance gap on the 1080/1080Ti are similar to the 980/980Ti....that will be one heck of a card and I'm guessing it'll be flirting with a $800 price tag.

Would love to see how it stacked up next to SLI 980s.... NV was claiming that the 1080 was going to beat out SLI 980s in the launch media right?
