Is this a joke? This isn't the first time I've seen the GTX-1070 "out-perform" the GTX-1080. This is either backwards, and still isn't corrected after more than a year, or they don't know what there talking about. I think the performance metric of these two cards are reversed, and it shows in any comparison between the 1070, the 1080 and any other card. Needs to be fixed, the credibility of this site is taking a hit.
This site is jacked up some times. These 2 cards shouldn't have the same graphics score.
