NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition Video Card Review

Post by Apoptosis » Wed May 18, 2016 1:34 pm

The highly anticipated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 video card is finally here! Gamers have waited years for NVIDIA to move to the new 16nm FinFET manufacturing processor and we have finally moved away from the 28nm manufacturing process that we’ve been using for nearly half a decade. Read on to see how the new card performs!

Been waiting for this review! Actually more interested in the 1070 due to price.

Any reasoning behind the power jump at lower resolutions? Is it due to the chip being set for 4K?

How soon do you anticipate a liquid cooled version of this coming out from someone like eVGA or ASUS. I love my ASUS Poseidon GTX 780 and would jump at the chance to replace it with a liquid cooled version of the 1080.

mid June after Computex for sure. I am confident that EVGA will have a EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 HYBRID GAMING and EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 HYBRID COPPER model like usual. I also wouldn't be shocked that ASUS and Gigabyte follow behind with water cooled flavors shortly after that as well.

Looking forward to the 1070 as well. I'm holding off on buying a new card until I see the reviews for it.

Coming soon, but it will be slower than a 980 Ti and there are some good deals upcoming for those!
