NVIDIA GTX 1080 Review Round Up

You might be wondering why there was so little news on the site about the upcoming Pascal GPUs from NVIDIA. That’s mostly because the info was pretty iffy most of the time. The great thing about the hardware industry is that new releases can be very exciting, but they can also be over-hyped. I sat back for some time trying to determine if and what I should be covering about this release, ultimately deciding to wait until the reviews came in. Well, they’re in, and the GTX 1080 is a monster of a GPU! Overall, NVIDIA looks like they really outdid themselves on this one, which is impressive considering how well they outdid themselves with Maxwell. The 1080 achieves performance that’s almost impossible to believe and is certainly a worthy successor to the previous 900 series architecture. The only head scratcher that has some reviewers questioning it is in the high price of the founder’s edition. Outside of that, NVIDIA has knocked it out of the park. Here’s a list of reviews that have released already so that you can easily browse through them at your leisure.
