    Meh, but better than expected. We'll see what AMD has to offer. I think the TDP there is the craziest bit. I wasn't expecting that much of a Wattage-to-peformance increase. As long as there's no more RAM shenanigans, the 1070 may be my next card.

    So 25% faster than a GTXTitan/980Ti for around £400 plus VAT with some fancy VR tech. Not bad. I hope the 180 watt TDP isn't another hard limit.

    £400 + (20%)VAT = £500, so same(ish) as 980Ti then.

    Going to USA in Oct. Customs allowance is £390, so might bring one back instead of buying here...

    GTX 1080 is around 20-25 percent faster than Titan X while consuming approximately 30 percent less power... lets not forget Titan X has 12GB of GDDR5 which is awesome for video & animation rendering.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 unveiled - $599 for table-topping perf

    Anandtech summed it up:
    GTX1080 - $599 and Founders Edition, $699
    25% faster than GTX980Ti according to Nvidia. 9 TFLOPS
    Available May 27th
    GTX1070 - $379 and Founders Edition $449. 6.5 TFLOPS
    Available June 10th

    The GTX1080 has a 2.1GHZ clockspeed and GDDR5X. The GTX1070 has GDDR5 instead.

    It also nearly 40% extra TFLOPS too.

    I hope that does not mean the GTX1070 is much slower?

    The latest TPU review places the GTX980 as being around 15% faster than the the GTX970:

    https://tpucdn.com/reviews/ASUS/GTX_..._2560_1440.png

    With the GTX1070 having only GDDR5,it has no hope of catching the GTX1080,and I suspect it will be in-between GTX980 and GTX980TI level performance.

    Would not suprise me if it is Fury level or a tad faster.

    MRSP of the GTX1070 is $379 instead of the $329 for the GTX970. So with VAT would be probably £310 to £320.

    Edit to post!!

    Official numbers released:

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/10304/...-gtx-1080-1070



    So around 10% less transistors than the GM200 and a 10% higher TDP than a GTX980.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 unveiled - $599 for table-topping perf

    Perhaps the most interesting revelation is that GTX 1080 is a 180W TDP part, not 250W typically found on previous high-end GPUs from both Nvidia and AMD. That said, Huang showed that GTX 1080 is around 20-25 percent faster than Titan X while consuming approximately 30 percent less power.

    Given what we know about the potential of overclocked GTX 980 Tis from various partners, a vanilla GTX 1080 will barely be any faster. This, clearly, is not the daddy Pascal GPU, because Nvidia doesn't need it: GTX 1080 Ti is probably lying in wait. We can hope that partners tap into the extra available TDP and really push this GTX 1080 to the limit, to enable more fluid gameplay at 4K.

    Nvidia's first throw of the Pascal dice has resulted in a chip with greater-than-ever efficiciency. That's pretty much a given when moving down manufacturing processes, mind, so the performance increases over Maxwell is very decent rather than outright spectacular. GTX 1080, however, is twice as fast as a GTX 980, which is GPU with a 165W TDP, so, doing the maths, Pascal is actually about 80 percent faster than Maxwell on an energy-equivalent basis, before other optimisations are taken into account.
    Anandtech says around 25% faster than a GTX980TI. If you look ast TPU that is around GTX980TI Matrix level:

    https://tpucdn.com/reviews/ASUS/GTX_..._2560_1440.png

    This would make the GTX1080 50% faster than a GTX980 but with a higher TDP. Even if actual power consumption were the same as a GTX980,how does make the GTX1080 80% more efficient than a GTX980??

    Am I missing something here??

    Re: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 unveiled - $599 for table-topping perf

    According to AT,only the Founders Edition cards will be available on 27th May and June 10th,so that is $449 and $599 if you want to be first in line. So £311 without VAT(around £375) and £485 without VAT(around £581).

    Edit!!

    NV PR piece stating it:

    http://nvidianews.nvidia.com/news/a-...force-gtx-1080

    Availability and Pricing
    The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 "Founders Edition" will be available on May 27 for $699. It will be available from ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, NVIDIA. Palit, PNY and Zotac. Custom boards from partners will vary by region and pricing is expected to start at $599.

    The GeForce GTX 1080 will also be sold in fully configured systems from leading U.S.-based system builders, including AVADirect, Cyberpower, Digital Storm, Falcon Northwest, Geekbox, IBUYPOWER, Maingear, Origin PC, Puget Systems, V3 Gaming and Velocity Micro, as well as system integrators outside North America.

    The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 "Founders Edition" will be available on June 10 for $449. Custom boards from partners are expected to start at $379.

    More information on the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 is available at www.geforce.com.

    I was waiting to get this generation, as my 670 GTX is getting old.
    But why they skipped HBM2?
    I am not overhelmed by the specs, I will wait for another year, or just see what AMD will offer.

    I wonder what the Founders Edition of the card is. Might be with the stock cooler I presume.

    It is barely running Rise of the Tombraider DX12 twice as good as 980.

    FE 1080 = $699 (May 27th)
    FE 1070 = $449 (June 10th)

    Cheapest 980 Ti on Amazon.com (Prime) = ~$540
    Cheapest 980 Ti on Amazon.co.uk (Prime) = ~£530

    IIRC usually an item costing x USD will be like GBP and not USD to GBP conversion.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 unveiled - $599 for table-topping perf

    If the 1080 is 20-25% faster than a Titan X, then that is a major boost in power. AMD really do have to deliver with Polaris.. 2016 will be an interesting year for 4K/UHD/VR gaming!

    Not bad, will be getting a 1070 when custom PCB comes.

    It cost as much as a mission to Mars and and took many thousands of engineers to build a graphics card that offers 25% more performance for 100 watts less power?
