Today, NVIDIA released the GTX 1080 Ti, which is the company's fastest graphics card ever. It conclusively beats the much more expensive GTX Titan X in our testing. While the NVIDIA reference cooler looks amazing, its cooling potential could be improved, as our review shows.

Great review as always. Was eagerly awaiting this one, even if it was largely predictable.

Nice to see it beating the Titan with ref cooler and clocks! The cooler performance was a tad underwhelming, but I personally dont care about that, AIB all the way!

The price is high-ish, but not extortionate. Could have been worse, and was anticipating it to be really. I expect to get an AIB for around the €900 mark, was preparing for a grand though.

What was the max allowed power target slider percentage? And is this based off the stock 220W limit?

Volume sales can often result in a higher overall sale profit than per product margins. People are much more likely to buy $700 product than $1200 product. The total market here is fairly small anyway, so not much to lose for NVIDIA.

It seems crazy in some ways, but in the end, those that were going to pay up for the premium of getting a Titan and that performance a little early have now done so and its time to move on to those holding out for the Ti, this one just happens to be a little better out of the gate.

As for Vega, lets hope AMD do have something special. Competition is always a good thing. I wouldnt even mind it giving my new 1080 ti a smack down, because that just means next upgrade will hopefully have moved a little further on thanks to the competition. But lets be honest, if AMD had a killer product, they would be teasing some more details to hopefully curtail some 1080 Ti purchasers now, but thats not happening.

That's the thing, we don't know what the allowable max power limit is. Pascal, thus far, hasn't allowed custom BIOS modding to open up the power limit for those who want to push under water cooling.

Congratulations on this wonderful review. When you say "I set power target to max", can you share what that value is?

i build my PCs around super silent gaming the AIB cards will produce less noise so at least thats an option.

@W1zzard On the maximum overclock comparison chart you have the gtx 1080 listed as 2441mhz core clock. Is this a typo or have you hit that clock with the old 1080?

I just bought a used pair of 1080s w/ek blocks and ek backplates for 500 a pop and would be thrilled about an almost 2.5ghz core clock possibility! :D

The way things have been, you can buy the Titan branded product to get the best performance 6-9 months earlier at twice the price. Impatience seems to be an expensive attribute.

Doesnt matter for people wearing headphones. And that is just the FE card that is noisy. Non reference cards probably wont be that way. So does it really matter?

@W1zzard No WoW benchmark? Or 3440x1440p tests?

Titan exist solely to make other nvidia products look like a better deal than they actually are. I don't think consumers will be getting the full GP102 card which gets around 10 fps more than the crippled Titan and 1080 Ti.
