NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti Vs. NVIDIA GTX 980
In terms of real-world testing, NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti's promotional page pits the GPU's performance against the company's own GTX 980. The results show performance upgrades better than double with some cases showing performance upgrades even better than triple; however, this result is not completely reliable.
Although the GTX 980 is without an iota of doubt, a great GPU (graphics processing unit), it's nowhere close to the NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti in terms of overall performance. Moreover, it was already overthrown by the company's own 10 series. In other words, the comparison is merely for dramatic effect, according to IGN.
NVIDIA assures more performance results ahead of the NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti looming March 10 release date giving potential buyers an idea regarding the level of performance upgrade the card has to offer compared to the current generation of 10 series. With both NVIDIA and AMD hard at works on more advancements, 2017 could turn to be a great year for GPUs just like last year. Stay tuned in here for more updates!
