LOL, isn't that a parody of PhysX?

Perhaps not. With maxwell and kepler cards async path on the game engine makes game unplayable(Or affects negatively to performance). So its hard coded by oxide to disable that path if nvidia card id is rendering(don't know if it's in use while amd card rendering and nvidia card just used as slave). But seriously tough, we don't know if pascal's async compute is any better until oxide updated its engine.

PhsyX = NVIDIA doesn't bother with nor share source code to make it work on competing hardware.
Async Compute = Oxide optimized the code for AMD (leave it on) and NVIDIA (disable it) to get the maximum frames per second.

TL;DR:
PhsyX = no fucks given by NVIDIA
Async = doing what game developers do

and here it is ... the "founder edition that cost 100$ more" am i the only one that find nvidia particularly despicable for that one ? custom model are far above that one in term or cooler (generally) and already more expensive than a stock one (everybody know the price of a custom one will not be 599$ ...) , so why make the stock one wear the name of "founder" just to add a 100$ overprice?

on the other hand, the perf are correct, tho +36% is not a warrant for a change over my 980 o_O (not even for 4gb more, nor 41% in 4k case )


oh ... so the fps is in the "barely acceptable" for 4k? oh well at last you need only 1 card for it

Well, for all the Tech Gomer Pyles that were barking about Pascal would only be 20% faster than Maxwell all over the interwebs......here it is. The GTX 1080 Ti, or whatever they call it, will run circles around my 980 Ti. What remains to be seen is whether Nvidia chooses to go with the original Titan (Kepler) route or the Titan X route. They probably could get away with charging between $1,000 and $1,300 for the Pascal Titan and scoop up a few gamers in a hurry to buy the best card out there but will they instead offer a gimped Maxwell gaming card (980 Ti) and leave the Titan version for those with deep pockets like they did with Maxwell? We'll see.

Radeon Tech will drop the hammer with their Flagship 14nm gaming GPU in the near future and we will see some strong competition when the boys each pull out their big guns. Good times for PC gamers. :)

For anyone that isn't in a hurry to upgrade, don't worry. This will be a resting spot for a few years with GPU tech. Wait for prices to settle down, if you can, when supply channels are fully stocked. My guess is 3 years at least before the next process/ architecture.

Benchmark Scores i've got a shitload of them in 12 years of TPU membership
For me techpowerup reviews are the best in all the internet.

1) They provide the most amount of games for benchmarking, with a vast amounts of resolutions used.
2) The performance summary is the main reason i choose TP over other sites, it helps me to compare other cards, not included in the tests, relative the the given ones.

Can't wait for GTX1070 review and i tell you why - very different results all over the internet right now concerning GTX1070 VS GTX980 Ti VS GTX Tinan X.

"Guru3D" claims GTX1070 to be absolutely superior to GTX980 Ti and as strong or even stronger than GTX Titan X, while "Hardware Unboxed" calims GTX1070 to be only equal to GTX980 Ti an nowhere as good as GTX Titan X.

I wonder what kind of conclusion will TP provide.

Looking forward to the GTX 1070 review. I expect Nvidia will hit a home run with this one just like the 970 was.

The big question now is:
Is 2 x GTX 1080 (SLI) enough for smooth 4k ? Or do we wait for GTX 1080Ti ?

Appreciate the great feedback. GTX 1070 review this week if all goes well. Nearly everyone on the Internet abbreviates us as "TPU", so do we ourselves :)

Will you be able to test custom GTX 1080s soon?

I also think overall your reviews are one of the best and thorough on the net...

I am really interested in which 1080 custom has the quietest and best cooling.
Looking forward to your tests.

Hope it will happen soon. :)

ON the Warcraft section where in game were you guys pulling these huge FPS numbers? IM running I7 4790k at 4.4 with 16GB ram, Samsung 950 pro PCIe SSD, and a EVGA Superclocked 1080 and not getting NEAR those numbers you listed at 1920x1080. That 209 FPS you had listed is far from realistic

i think they do FRAPS recordings for repeatable footage, which removes any CPU loads/limitations and goes pure GPU.

How is that even realistic at that point? Thats like dropping a car out a plane to test MPH


i've asked about it, but never got much of a response. it might be good for comparing GPU's precisely, but the numbers have no relevance to actual gameplay that way.
