Good Day,
I am in Canada and looking to upgrade some GPUs. Currently not sure what to get here. Heres the pricing
980 $250-300
RX 480 $300-350
1080 $430-$450
Thank you

Outright performance the GTX1080 wins by a fair margin, getting on to about 2:1 over the GTX980. I'm not sure where the RX480 stands, but I think it is somewhere closer to the GTX980 than the GTX1080.
In terms of power consumption there is little between the GTX980 and the GTX1080, if anything the GTX1080 is a little better than the GTX980, but not by much.

If you can go for the 1080Ti, or even the 1070Ti a lot more performance per $

I said WTH and just pre-ordered a EVGA GTX 1070Ti. Curious how much improvement on my GTX 1070's it will have. I still can't see the pricing of the 1080's still being in the mid $500 range being any more appealing for just 128 CUDA cores more. I wonder how many are going to ship tomorrow. Did they stockpile a bunch of failed chips to make the product or are they going to trickle out of production?

Me latest benchmarks might help you decide -- the RX 480 has been disappointing since it shipped -- I'd hoped the performance would improve but it hasn't really.

I'm keen to measure but I'm guessing the 1070 Ti won't perform much better than the 1070 because the memory bandwidth per core is lower -- even the 1080 isn't that much faster than a stock 1070.

Why I didn't recommend updating from a 980Ti to any 1080s purely on crunching ability. Powerwise would be the only reason. If however, you didn't own any 900 series and wanted a newer card, then a 1070 would be my recommendation. But if you want over the top, the 1080Tis are the way to go, lol....

Edit..

Jayz says the 1070Ti are closer to 1080s than the 1070s...

Is this a link to a team forum thread? I ask because it won't load, says the"the page cannot be displayed". While if that's a thread in a team forum, that makes sense as then only team members and moderators can see that, not everyone else.
