Titan Xp or 1080ti sli?

Go to solution Solved by Lurick,

1080ti in SLI, even with the SLI issues it's still a better deal than the Titan Xp.

Hello!

 

So when I built my computer I bought a GTX 1080Ti FE. 2 months later (now), I wanted to do SLI with the FE, but they are not avalaible anywhere anymore (amazon but for 2,000 CAD), so I sold the one I had and I came to this question: Buy 2 GTX 1080Ti or the new new new Titan Xp.

 

Which one of these options would you guys recommend?

2 1080 Tis. A single Titan Xp is only 5% faster than a 1080 Ti :P

Definitely 2 1080 TIs.

 

why did you sell your FE? You could've just bought an aftermarket 1080 ti and SLIed it with your FE 1080 ti

Make sure to quote me or tag me when responding to me, or I might not know you replied! Examples:

I didn't want 2 different cards (I'm that kind of person)

1080Ti SLI for sure, it's significantly faster than a single Titan Xp.

For gamers, 1080 ti. No reason to pay so much more for an equally strong Titan Xp.

 

And i say equally strong, because titan Xp will boost much lower because it throttles, while a 1080 ti Custom can boost higher --> it makes up f or the difference in memory and core count.

The NVIDIA TITAN Xp really only makes sense in a workstation/prosumer environment since there are drivers that helps boost performance in applications like 3ds Max and Maya.

 

For all other purposes, SLI GTX 1080 Ti's is the better way to go.

Everyone always says sli is shit until you bring up Titan. Everyone says to get the single fastest which would be the Titan. I'd rather run 2 1080's for 700 bucks before buying either of those two cards.

well, 2 1080 will be 1000 bucks, not 700.

And only in sli-scaling games decent, in others slower than a 1080 ti, that also consumes less power, always delivers 100% of it's performance, doesn't need sli support/profiles, playing with Sli Bits, less heat etc etc.

 

 

I would not recommend anyone doing Sli with 2 weaker cards, than getting 1 stronger one for 250 bucks less, that WILL be the better overall experience.

Sli with 1080 ti is fine. Because there is no stronger card right now, so anyone who needs more, doesn't have a choice.

 

GTX 1080 users do have a choice -> upgrade to a 40% faster 1080 ti (which also offers 11gb vram and much faster memory bandwidth)

 

But well, preferences and opinions~

That may be your price but it's a lot less for me. So if the scaling is shit the Titan is the best choice. Single best as everyone says.

You just game and a single 1080 Ti was not enough? Being honest if a 1080 Ti is not enough for your gaming needs neither will be the TITAN Xp as it only is around 5% to 8% faster in gaming in averages.

 

Wait for Volta and pick the TITAN X Volta for glory HBM2.... oh wait you actually sold a 1080 Ti to buy a SLI 1080 Ti??? makes no sense really FE cards really the best for SLI, water cool them and be happy... being honest OP has made one of the worse money managements ever and either way he goes right now it is one big burn of money...

 

I can't really advise in this mess.

I guess you didn't read entirely. I can't buy another FE... it costs way too much.

Out of the box, FE 1080Ti is almost identical to the Titan Xp. However, there are no custom Titan Xp designs, so if you're looking at an AIB model 1080Ti, that will definitely be the better buy. They often have better cooling (if airflow permits), and some models have better power delivery for better overclocking. With a little tinkering, you can easily get an AIB 1080Ti to run faster than a Titan Xp ever could unless you water cooled it.

 

That said, SLI 1080Ti would wreck a single Titan Xp.
