Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone  :)

Black Friday and Cyper Monday coming next month, and I am looking to buy a 2nd GTX 980 or a GTX 1080.. which one will give me a higher performance?

Some Additional info:

I use 2 monitors (sometimes 3 when I hock up the TV) and I dont plan on playing 4k any time soon.. or 2k for that matter.

 

currently i am looking at
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 4GB SC GAMING ACX 2.0
or
MSI GAMING GeForce GTX 980 4GB OC DirectX 12

Any advice is much appreciated  :x

Depends on what games you play. I believe (no expert) that games that fully utalize the 980's will have better performance, but most games won't. Up to you - I'd say it just depends on what games you play. My guess is on average the 1080 would be better.

***Don't quote me on any of this pls****

A single 1080 would be the better option. SLI isn't as reliable, the 1080 is very powerful, especially for 1440p and lower resolutions (overkill 99.99% of the time), and it won't see any VRAM issues for the next few years.


Yup the yup.

1080 sli doesn't work as well as a single card and the 980 sli is worse than a single 1080 

First hand experience for me is that 980 SLi is definitely more powerful.

what do you want? A list of games that i play which could be totally different to you? Where the SLi support is top notch in order to stay ahead of the 1080? 

 

A list of benchmarks?

1080 would be your best bet, SLI isn't supported in most games and in some you can get worst performance.

Thanks alot everyone  :D

After more research and alot of benchmarks.. for a 1080p gaming a 2x GTX980 is better than single 1080 (and even in the 1440p games).
