What’s really interesting here is that NVIDIA claimed that the GTX1080 is faster than two GTX980 in SLI and faster than the Titan X. This makes the GTX1080 the faster single GPU ever created, something that definitely surprised us as a lot of people expected this GPU to be slightly more powerful than the GTX980Ti. According to the graph, our guess is that the GTX1080 should be around 40-30% faster than the GTX980Ti.
