very_vocal what
Just 2.5 years ago, this site was top-of-the-line. Great info, up-to-date informaton, Johnny-on-the-spot with new models... Not sure what happened but very disappointed with both the CPUBoss side where no matter what cpus you put in, it goes back to the original one they decided to show; to GPUBoss having many of the same issues. Have reported your issues to 12 of the better known computer review sites to let know they should consider removing you from their web pages.
This is the worst website to check for facts. While they have an excellent format they do not fact check and they leave up inaccurate information forever. The scores are backwards not to mention fake in this review also the gtx 1080 beats all other Nvidia cards in alot of cases however it is slower than the 1080 ti by a large margin in cases like Trex or Manhattan while keeping almost in line with the rest of the tests all while delivering a faster overall computing and gamin experience in most cases until you go up to the games that are highly optimized where the Gtx 1080 ti can truly shine. I say Gtx 1080 is best card while 1080 has the best Value and all around performance. What interests me Most of all is the identical scores for Passmark Between 1080ti / 1080 / 1070 / 1060 / 1050ti 13,373 vs 11,994 vs 11,028 vs 8,602 and 5757 all so close considering the price difference between the cards So they all offer benefits over the other cards in one way or another I say for the capability offered and the future proofing shoot for the 1080 ti or 1080 if you are a gamer at least get a 1070 and if you just do regular just get a 1050 ti should be more than enough but still check out the difference between the 1080ti and 1050ti in floating point performance which to me is the true measure of a card 11,340 GFLOPS vs 1,983 GFLOPS the big deal is these tensor cores in the new Titan V total game changer the Titan V is capable of over 111Teraflop where as 1080ti about 14 tops
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
