    Since the regular, non TI 1080 whipes the floor with the Titan, yes its probably more than worth it if you are 4k, if you have the money for it.

    I don't play in 4K. I do play at 3440x1440p with the Titan X Maxwell SLI and Acer Predator X34 G-Sync 100Hz monitor which looks to be the sweet spot for gaming. What would be the advantage moving forward on with the 1080Ti?

    IMO, yes I'll be going that route, myself. I've been GPU limited for some time now. Decided to skip the Pascal Titans as they are just awful cards for the asking price. The 1080 Ti is very well priced though. I'm hoping EVGA will release a Hydro Copper model and I will be picking up two of those and selling my Maxwell Titan HCs. :)

    The advantage ?
     
    The 1080 Ti will use less wattage
     
    As a measure of RAW power I can tell you that Folding shows a difference between the Titan X (mine are SC cards with custom BIOS) and Titan X Pascal
     
    EVGA Titan X SC - will produce about 800K PPD (points per day) --> this is about what an Air cooled EVGA 1080 FE is doing
     
    Titan X Pascal - will produce about 1200K PPD --> 50% more
     
    Folding proteins (folding at home project) is not gaming, not much of the graphics card's RAM gets used. 
     
    However, the GPU is under 85-95 % load and the software is a magnitude less tolerant of an errors - games will play through errors, Folding will Not.
     
    The actual build details are in my signature
     
    Pascal GPUs are happiest when they are 50 C and cooler.  Boost 3.0 will slow the MHz as the card(s) warm
     
    The questions I have:
    Are you unhappy with your current build ? 
    What are you trying to improve on your current build ? Just games or ?

    You will notice a considerable performance gain going from a Titan X Maxwell to a 1080 Ti if you play at or above 2560x1440.
     
    If you are playing at 1080p, I would use the upgrade money you have towards a better display.

    Yes.
     
    Pros: More FPS.
     
    Cons: Cost.

    At your displays, you will see more stable framerates, as well as higher framerates.
    I play with just 1 titan maxwell at 2560x1440 120hz, and its not enough for me with newer games to be stable framerates. But I play online games as well as fps/tps games, and those require high frame rates and stable framerates.
    If you are already getting stable frames in all the games you play at those resolutions, then no you dont need to upgrade.

    Please don't take offense to my comment, but this pattern of sucking people into "new/old" GPU's its just ridicules.........Don't be fool, keep your Titans, keep them until at least next Titan's Gen or whatever they will bring in a few months and at that time you will be asking the same question and by than 1080Ti will be old news

    gtx 1080Ti will have better results than Titan X. How ever 1080Ti hase cheaper than Titan X

    I reviewed some feedback comments regarding  my 34" Acer Predator X34 IPS NVIDIA G-Sync Gaming Monitor with 100Hz. I have owned the Asus 27" G-Sync 144Hz monitor and could not tell the difference between 100Hz to 144Hz I will only consider upgrading to a better monitor that is HDR 144Hz 2K/4K with G-Sync ready and 34" to 35" wide curved viewing display. I like big monitors. The monitor should allow selective resolutions to get the best FPS and enjoyment out of the monitor.

    120hz is the tops I could tell the difference. I could not see any benefit going to a 144hz monitor. The 120hz was just fine.
    But there is a big difference between the new adaptive displays, at 60/120/144/240/400. Those arent real 120, or 144, or 200hz. They are doubled/quad frames (2x60=120, 2x77=144, 4x50=200, etc). They are TV's, not gaming monitors. And they will ALWAYS introduce lag into whatever input control you use. If you only play games at 30 or 60 fps this doesnt matter though, and you will have a great time playing games.
     
    But, it sounds like you already know what you want, you just want others to say 'go for it!'.
    :)
    So, GO FOR IT MAN!
