    GTX 1080

    garethm69160939 Level 1

      Finally a confirmation on this card

       

      GTX 1080 Graphics Card | GeForce

       

      it looks like an absolute beast and not overly expensive - looking forward to trying it. is there any reason why it wont be supported in PR?

       

      Cheers

          I wonder what computer specs will justify using a card that powerful?

            I am looking forward to what Eric Bowen will have to say about the minimum necessary CPU required to push that 1080 to its potential. I watched the NVidia live stream event and was impressed at the claims of massive performance increases along with energy efficiency.

             

            I am guessing that the flagship Broadwell E will be a good match !! NVidia is touting at least a 30% performance increase over Titan X at far less wattage AND cost !!  They also claim " insane overclockability".  The 9xx series Maxwells did not allow much overclocking.

             

            NVidia claimed a stock clock speed of over 2,000 Mhz and over 5,000Mhz on the memory clock speed for the 1080 !!...all with 8 GB of blazing fast new DDR 5X memory !!

             

            I have to laugh as my not too shabby Asus gaming laptop GPU sports 2GB of plain DDR5 video memory and even overclocked to the max is running at 915 Mhz clock speed and 3,000Mhz on the memory clock speed !!...( stock is 700Mhz and 2,000 Mhz, respectively ).

             

            This new possible CPU and GPU combination on the X99 board is going to be powerful.....no need for multiple graphics cards.

             

            I've seen some benchmarks on the 6950X Broadwell E flagship CPU done with engineering samples and the results indicate a modest performance gain over the 5960X Haswell E flagship CPU of about 10% in multi threaded tasks. Its too bad that the Broadwell E will NOT be offered at a decent price, like NVidia is doing with Pascal. Intel will get an extra $500 for 2 extra cores and a slightly lower clockspeed with overclocking.......only 4.2 to 4.3, so far on the engineering samples. $1,500 for a Broadwell E is going to hurt !

             

            I hope Eric tests this new combination soon ,like he did with Haswell E and posts the results on this forum !!

              I am hoping that this is not another CUDA limited product like the Maxwell cards are.  Maxwell cards fall back in the memory clock as soon as you run any CUDA application.  Power Consumption is a major goal for nVidia and CUDA took a hit with Maxwell so for all the great specs for Pascal we will have to wait and see on this new GTX 10 series if the samething happens

               

              Also note that you do not get this new great performance memory on the GTX 1070.  The quoted 10 Gbps on the GDDR5X memory is only on the GTX 1080.  The GTX 1070 only has standard GDDR5 7 Gbps memory.  With my GTX 970 rated at 7 Gbps when you run any CUDA application it falls back to 6 Gbps.

                I'm running a 5960x overclocked to 4.3GHz running stable (i did have it at 4.5GHz but it didnt like long renders out of PR)

                i'm guessing (hoping ) that will be enough to push a GTX1080?

                  We will be benchmarking the X99 and other platforms again with the current Adobe CC version when we get the 10 core i7 in for testing. Still waiting for it to arrive. We will definitely be benchmarking the new 1080GTX card as well. Based on what I have seen with the Pascal cards focused on GPU acceleration, the performance increase should be significant if Adobe's GPU acceleration utilizes it completely.

                      Please let us know when you have benchmark results with the Adobe CC benchmarks suite.

                       

                      Does anyone know of any Autodesk benchmarks that are out yet?  Or any with any render software?

                          We are still waiting for the 1080GTX cards to arrive in NA. We just got our sample 6950X chips from Intel. The bios updates on the previous rev Asus X99 boards work fine with the chip so far. Currently switched to the new X99 Rev 2 boards to build the benchmarking image. Nice boards so far.

                            Eric Id be interested to see how they benchmark against the 5960x (which i'm running overclocked at 4.3GHz)

                             

                            on a side note i'm looking at my storage set up - currently got a mixture of storage (12TB Raid 5, couple of SSD's (480GB) and and intel 750 series 400GB PCI card. i was wondering if i purchased a Samsung 950 pro M.2 drive could I install in in the m.2 slot on my Asus x99-s MB and raid that and the Intel drive together to give me a very fast (robust) media drive for running PPro?

                            thanks

                              RAIDing two entirely different devices is not recommended!

                                Hi Bill. Why is that? Is it not the same as RAIDing a couple of SSD's?

                                thanks

                                  If you have two different vendors there are good chances there are two different controllers and it is a real possibility that certain commands could be handled differently.  I remember back in the days of hard disk drive RAID that manufacturers would suggest that even the firmware in the RAID drive set be made identical

                                    So I bit the bullet and ordered the 1080 today! its arriving tomorrow, cant wait to see how it performs. will let you know

                                    Thanks

                                      I just got my 1080 founders edition and it doesn't work with r3d files, it was working with my gtx 770. This is not good !!!!

                                              You didn't specify, is this with the latest 1080-only driver from NVidia

                                              that was mentioned above?

                                                    Will the GTX 980TI be cheaper than the new 10xx cards in a month or so?  Those have more CUDA cores than the 10xx right?  If you were upgrading from gtx760 would you go 980 or 1070?  I'm concerned with playback more than rendering.

                                                      Only time will give us a good answer.  I am waiting on Eric Bowen's testing of the GTX 1080.

                                                       

                                                      While the GTX 1080 might have fewer CUDA cores it could possibly make up the difference with much higher speed memory clock.

                                                        Hey guys, I have the GTX 1080 and was playing around with it. I have 32GB of ram, and the i7 latest gen Intel processor. The card is really fast, but skipped on video playback during a dissolve pretty severely. I can't get it to play back in real-time. Any pointers? I'm glad to answer questions about how the card is performing. Maybe you guys can help me optimize? Thanks!

I had installed 368.22 in my i3 system with the GTX 960, and it couldn't export the H.264 Blu-ray timeline of the PPBM benchmark, which I knew contained some R3D footage, with MPE set to GPU acceleration. The export attempt simply errored out with "Error compiling movie". I had to roll back to the previous WHQL driver version, 365.19, to export that PPBM timeline.

                                                                 

                                                                And since 368.22 is the only WHQL driver that is compatible with the Pascal GPUs, the only workaround for R3D at present for GeForce 1000-series GPUs would be to temporarily switch the MPE renderer from GPU accelerated mode to software-only mode.

The 1080 will be good for games and little gain form 980ti and maybe 780ti hence the price. I feel there is no need to upgrade unless you run a lesser Cuda card.

I do my main editing work on a previous-generation i7-4790K rig.

                                                                          with minimum of 4000cuda cores to cope with the Ultra HD stuff. This way gamers and editors will be happy. I run a GTX690-3930k

                                                                          and 2x 780ti-990x and the flow is a joy. So GTX1080 can wait

                                                                                  The 368.25 driver is for the GeForce GTX 1080 only. It cannot be installed on a system with any earlier GeForce GTX series GPU. Thus, the latest driver for the GTX 900-series and older GPUs is still 368.22. Therefore, the 368.25 driver will have the exact same problem with R3D footage as the 368.22 driver.

For the 900-series and earlier GPUs, one must roll back the driver from 368.22 to 365.19 in order to edit R3D footage with MPE GPU acceleration enabled.
