GTX 980 Ti SLI vs. GTX 1080 Ti SLI on AMD Ryzen 7 1800X

Can you believe it has been nearly two years since NVIDIA released its GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card? NVIDIA used the Maxwell GPU architecture on the 28nm process with great success, with a power efficient graphics card that still packed a huge performance punch - especially over the stock GTX 980.

 

But just 12 months later NVIDIA trumped the GTX 900 series with its new GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 Founders Edition graphics cards, powered by the new Pascal GPU architecture and on the 16nm node. Larger performance leaps alongside leaps and bounds in memory bandwidth and technology used saw the GTX 1080 become the enthusiast graphics card of choice for high-end gamers.

 

 

NVIDIA completely dominated the high-end graphics card space in 2016, with various AIB partners releasing their custom GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards - with even more performance, cooler running cards, and multiple fans with higher OC abilities.

Then came GDC 2017, and NVIDIA unveiled the new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti - which like the GTX 980 Ti before it, represents a huge leap over the GTX 1080.

NVIDIA itself markets the new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti as the best Ti release ever, with an average 35% more performance over the already fast GTX 1080.

As you can see, the GTX 1080 Ti really rocks that 11GB of GDDR5X @ 11Gbps well, offering some monster memory bandwidth numbers.
