Would of hoped for a bigger difference than 13%.

Still no flightsims are using DX12 yet.

Meh, it's around the same price, so I'm glad I didn't upgrade my GTX970 to a 980Ti when I built my new rig.  I'll have to see if a MSI Gaming version will be better than the Founders.

i have a 980ti but plan on waiting for the 1080ti before i trade up, i always change my cpu and videocard every year, it allows for better selling price for my current parts and doesn't hit the wallet like having to buy new without extra money.

I'm with Brett!

 

Have a 980Ti but will wait until there's a decent non-reference 1080Ti, pre overclocked and with better cooling. For example EVGA.

Not exactly "Twice as fast as a Titan X"...

However there's no point in speculating. Just wait for the NDA to be lifted.

Wise words, you can never underestimate the power of advertising "hype"! We've been disappointed before!

Of course, one of the major problems is that fsx is relatively impervious to changes in GPU power.

Perhaps that changes in the age of DTG.

And of course, X-plane will love both the card and it's 8 gigs of ram.

 I wouldn't say "relatively impervious". Benefits quite a bit these days, now we are all running with higher res and AA settings and with add-on's that are more GPU intensive. Still CPU biased though of course.

 

P3D benefits somewhat more from GPU power so I'm told.

nVidia seems to be foundering. They must be trying to emulate Microsoft and Intel.

This is where the rest of the world is, and is going..........

 

And we are ecstatic that DTG Flight School has cockpit shadows.........  :smile:
