Reviews for the GTX 1080 are out, and the results are unanimous; NVIDIA’s latest flagship, based on the all-new Pascal architecture, is an absolute beast. Reports from major outlets have been published and their findings are quite impressive: The GTX 1080 outpaces NVIDIA’s GTX 980 Ti by an average of 30%. If that isn’t impressive enough, the card also manages to completely annihilate its predecessor, the GTX 980 by as much as 85% in the latest DirectX 12 titles at 4K resolutions.
Here’s what our friend’s from Hardware Canucks and PC Perspective had to say:
Against the GTX 980 Ti, a card that launched for $649 and just until recently was considered an ultra high end option the GTX 1080 actually looks like a viable upgrade path, particularly when overclocked. That’s something that could have never been said about the GTX 780 Ti to GTX 980 metric.
