eyyyy ive been here before :D
Compared my 1070 msi to a friends 1080's msi. Suprised its so different.
thanks, just saved me from gettng a 1080.
Compared my 1070 to the 1080's. Suprised so many others have, i just recently got the 1070 as a black-friday offer and im really happy with it!
i just visit this site for a quick laugh from time to time. you never fail me, gpuboss.
The scores are posted backwards! The 1080, by the numbers, got the higher score. Someone screwed up the headling. Come on, guys! It's been a year and nobody fixed this?
Was this test necessary? All I know I can game on either at 1440p. Now I am running 3 monitors in surround with a 1080 of the MSI variant. My EVGA 1070FTW looked allot prettier in my case.
It seems that GPU Boss only takes into account those results that only give a result in tests so the 1070 only gives results in 5, giving it a fake higher score. If you take out the test the 1070 doesn't score in and divide the 1080 by 5, you get 9.32.
Not sure why the 1070 got the better score considering the 1080 had a 1 point lead on the 1070 for each section
What an idiot did that review and conclusion?
Well second
