Which GPU to get?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok theres a place that has the Zotac 1080 gtx AMP Extreme for 739.00 tax and shipping and another place has the Gigabyte G1 1080 for 649.00 tax and shipping. Is getting the Zotac worth getting for nearly 100usd more than Gigabyte worth it?

Get the cheaper card you find. My founder editions overclock better than most custom cards out there which are 100-150 more.

Wait for the ZOTAC. The power delivery makes a big difference.

Except that card still doesn't overclock any better than its cheaper counterparts... It just hits higher frequencies out of the box. Even in that review, they couldn't keep a stable 2.1GHz clock.

Ill just wait for a cheaper option to hit then thanks alot guys and gals! I've had all my parts for the past almost two weeks but I have no 1080 yet!

I've heard the Zotac one is pretty good for raw performance but between the two I wouldn't expect to see a massive difference, unless you don't mind tossing the cash for about a 5% at most performance gain then I would go for the G1.

What you miss is this isn't Maxwell, this is Pascal. Peak clock speeds don't matter as much as keeping your clock speeds constant. That's why the ZOTAC beats the other cards, it's way more stable. 


If anyone asks you never saw me.
