390 to 1080, no regrets. My system uses less power, runs much cooler and the fan on this gigabyte card is whisper quiet even under heavy load. Stays at around 58C playing BF1 ultra @ 1440p.
That's a low bar you have, there. If the performance increase is anything less than 50% I'm just going to wait for the Ti. The 60-70% increase from Maxwell to Pascal has already spoiled me.Titan X (pascal) has been the most I've ever spent on a GPU, but I've been extremely happy with its performance. I jumped from SLI'ed 980Ti's to the Titan X, primarily for its superb VR capabilities and ability to drive 4k. No regrets and money well spent. Can't wait for Volta to arrive, but will only upgrade if significant performance gains are to be had (25% or more)
Just wanted to know how many of you guys who upgraded to Pascal are happy with your investment/upgrade. I upgraded from GTX780 SLI to GTX1080 SLI and although I am very happy but I'm also "less than awed" of the boost in performance. That is not a criticism mind you, the reason I say that is because while I upgraded the GPUs, I also did the same for my display - I went from a 24" @ 1920x1200 to a 34" Ultrawide a@ 3440x1440, so the boost in performance by the new GPUs are somewhat negated (although not completely) by the need for more juice to drive a bigger and much higher resolution display. I even thought of going down to 2,560x1440 to see more performance boost but its hard going back to a smaller screen after being used to, and thoroughly enjoying, an Ultrawide 21:9. Looks like the jump from 28nm to 14nm yielded more discernable returns. How was your satisfaction with your Pascal purchase/upgrade?
I must say that the best returns I ever got from my Pascal upgrade is the games. It is truly fulfilling when you have so many great games to make your investment worthwhile - Battlefield 1, Doom, Titanfall 2, Gears of War 4, COD-IW/MW-R, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Shadow Warrior 2 (yes even this humble gem!) etc, not to mention that we have so many cool games on the horizon too.
