Description

Tessie was built for Nvidia's Geforce Garage. We first completely disassembled the case to powercoat some parts and use automotive grade jet black on the main exterior parts. With the help of Ron at BlueHorseStudios Tessie the dragon was added to the front of the case! EKWB stepped up to help us with water cooling the 5960x and a perfect platform was finished for TWO new unreleased GTX 1080 cards.

Same I probably won't get the founder edition though

  • 40 months ago

Apparently "Founder's Edition" is just what they're going to be calling their reference cards from here on. Supposedly they want to be in the middle of the road and cost may be higher than other OEMs due to an all metal cooling shroud but we'll see when the other aftermarket cooling solutions hit.

if they follow a similar release schedule to the 900 series, the titan will come out near the end/beginning of 2017, with the 1080ti following suit sometime April/May 2017. Excited to see just how badly my 980ti will be whooped since I got it less than a month ago >.<

Don't listen to soundreaper, it actually doesn't outperform 980 sli, it only does that in VR.

You'll be looking at anywhere from 10%-20% increase in performance over the 980 ti, obviously that goes higher the more you overclock, but you'll need watercooling to break over 20% over 980 ti on air.

This isn't the next 4k crusher, certainly an improvement over the 980 ti, but not the advent of next-gen performance.

EDIT: It outperforms the 980 SLI in VR due to a feature called multi-projection, which allows the 1080 to basically mirror one image to both eye screens, basically halving the load it needs to render. It's absolutely a feature that'll be used extensively in the future if VR is going to take off, and Nvidia is ahead of the game by having it right now, but it isn't applicable in 2d environments like on a monitor.

Oh yeah, for sure, but that isn't enough to suddenly tackle 4k. The 1080 ti is what is going to truly attack that in modern AAA games.

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

Performance is crazy! One GTX 1080 out performs 2 GTX 980's in SLI. Even the GTX 1070 outperforms the Titan X. They did a demo of a single GTX 1080 playing the new DOOM 3 at the highest settings at 4K (might have been 2K, I forget) at around 133 FPS! I'm definitely buying a GTX 980 as soon as it releases!

  • 40 months ago
  • 2 points

Wow. That's pretty dank. ._. So it must be the most powerful GTX card out there right now, right?

Also, is the price for it in the parts lost the same as what it will be when it's officially released?

  • 40 months ago
  • 2 points

Yep that is the announced MSRP

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

It is the most powerful until the GTX 1080 Ti and whatever new Titan is released. The price is the same, it's being released at $600!

  • 40 months ago
  • 2 points

That's a great deal, $400 cheaper than a Titan X and performs better.

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

It was 1080p @ 133hz not 4K.

Faster does not equal better, don't get them confused. A one cylinder engine at 20,000 rpm isn't likely to perform better than a 4 cylinder engine at 10,000 rpm.

No doubt they are really quite powerful but wait for reviews.

  • 40 months ago

Wait for the 480x... we might see $200 beat Titan X, and early benchmarks already say so.

You have to remember those are only VR benchmarks. In normal gaming, the 1070 is a bit weaker than a 980ti and the 1080 is about 30% faster than the 980ti.

The 1080 is gonna be $600 for the actual one and $700 (I think) for the founder's edition, the 1070 is going to be $375 and claims to outperform the Titan X, the founders edition will be a bit more.

The Founder's edition only gives you more room for OC and is stock OC from factory... I am not sure but I think it gives you slightly longer warranty I'll have to check.

The card feels much like the 980 with a backplate and well manufactured cooler The small details of polished aluminum along the side of the card and the lettering for 1080 are very nice. As far as the SLI bridge it is much of the same the soft lighting of the green line is nice and the fact the PCB is screwed to the shell and can be taken apart and modded is a huge plus. The only thing that surprised me was use of the Nvidia eye logo on it taking place of the claw.

Well I haven't had the chance to put the 1080 to work but with a 180w TDP I think anything north of 800w would do the trick and that has a bit of over head so you hit the sweet spot of efficiency with the PSU

Yes I'll update that at the time I put this list together "Founders Edition" wasn't very clear so I use the MSRP

Sorry I don't know that but the new bridge fits the angles on the cards perfectly

Straight from nVidia's website:

"NVIDIA’s new SLI HB bridge doubles the available transfer bandwidth compared to the NVIDIA Maxwell™ architecture. Delivering silky-smooth gameplay, it’s the best way to experience surround gaming—and it’s only compatible with the GeForce GTX 1080."

They haven't even talked about those yet.

I'm sure it'll be compatible once they talk about the Pascal Titan and whatever new cards they may release.

I think it's not compatible with the 70 because it wouldn't benefit from it. I think this time around the x80 will truly be a sizable margin faster than the x70. My prediction.
