Could you run it with Extreme quality and Ultra Tessellation settings? [edit] or I could run mine to match your settings... see below!
I want to understand how my rig's performance compares with your i7-4790K
You have a higher average fps but my minimum fps is much higher, interesting. But you don't have AA set. I may have to run that again though, I think something else was running in the background. Will try again tomorrow.
Would be interesting to see your result with extreme settings.

Here's my Valley:

Wow, I'm getting an average 13 FPS higher score and significantly higher minimum FPS on my old X48 C2Q rig vs. your i7-4790K rig and 980 Ti.

You're right, its now revealed that the cpu and subsystem wasnt bottlenecking my 780 and possibly not even this 1080. Looks like the 1080 was the right choice over the 1070 STRIX.

However there will be some impact as the 1080 has to drag my rigs heavy butt around. Its not all about the GPU. Luckily most games are more dependent on the GPU rather than disk I/O and CPU cycles.

But for gaming it looks like my quad Q9650 upgrade with slight overclock and 1080 OC upgrade have put me back into high end gaming

Re: New Gigabyte G1 Gaming 1080 OC

My temps are good, running the extreme benchmarks several times pushed the GPU to a 69c peak. Thats some ways below the throttle set point. Fans came on but were so quiet at 69c that I couldnt detect them over my CPU's HSF, lol.

The card has the pulsing RGB LED's with the word GIGABYTE lit up.
Its ridiculous IMHO but there ya go.
What is quite useful is the indicator for the fans. Its the statement "FAN STOP" lit up and pulsing as well when the fans aren't running, quite handy fir those few times when I want to know if they're running.

I cant see how to control the LED's from the Guru OC II app, but doesnt matter since my case has no side window.

Speaking of app, I assume I cant use my ASUS GPU Tweak app with the Gigabyte card, but is that right? Anyone, know?

I've played some Far Cry Primal and Fallout 4 HD. All settings maxed for FCP and it sits rock solid on 60 FPS at all times. Extremely smooth gameplay, I'm just sliding around the maps running full speed and engaging enemy AI. This would easily go to 1440P on this rig.

Fo4, I have blur off because I dont like it and gameplay is very smooth when it wants to be I notice some hitching in certain areas. I may try going from HBAO to SSAO or reducing shadow draw as they both have huge impacts on performance, but I think ultimately its just Fo4 is like that. (This is with the HD textures installed).

So far very happy with the card, next stop is Prey 2017

Re: New Gigabyte G1 Gaming 1080 OC

Nice Zap! I am sure you will make good use of that card. I looked at the specs and your GPU clock, memory clock, and temps are almost identical to my STRIX card (in OC mode).

Thanks Sandog, I'm very happy with the card, temps are very well managed.
Its a good card, I can see myself happily running this rig for a while longer.

I'm interested to understand how much the platform is holding the cards performance back, though. How does a 1080 OC perform on a current mainstream gaming rig?
I'd like to see benchmarks on a stock setup, i.e. no extreme overclocking, just air cooled, but with a current mainstream gaming CPU.

What CPU are most people gaming with now anyway? Whats considered the best bang-for-buck for gaming? Once I know that I can go hunting for the benchmarks to compare.

Re: New Gigabyte G1 Gaming 1080 OC

FutureMark has uploaded benchmarks of every conceivable system. You could locate scores with 1080's and older CPU's. I have some recent Unigine Valley scores up in that thread, why don't you compare. Haven't ran Heaven in a while.

I have the game C&C Tiberian Wars + Kane's Wrath edition that I still play. When it came out in 2007 it was a very taxing game. As an RTS game it has the ability to have thousands of movements going on. The game is even limited to a maximum of 30FPS because it was so taxing. Well I can play it on my GTX 1080 and the card or CPU do not even move. The card stays at around 325MHz and the GPU doesn't get hot during the whole game play. That game is now like an ant for my card.

At about 12:20 he states the fact that at same frequency the 6700 and 7700 are identical. I know this is true with Haswell-E and Broadwell-E.

Also, they always say mainstream is the best for gaming and I believe it is due to when using a single core, mainstream chips are clocked higher. Still, you won't notice a difference in gaming when using a 3.6GHz CPU and 4.0GHz CPU IMO, the difference in FPS would probably be in the range of 5%. I believe if you have a 4.0GHz CPU whether its mainstream or HEDT, you are doing great and really stability should be your concern.
