In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 SLI are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

The GTX 1080 has a 127 MHz higher core clock speed and 96 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1080 Ti. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 182.7 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1080 has a 127 MHz higher core clock speed and 40 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1080 Ti. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 75.5 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 1080 Ti was released less than a year after the GTX 1080, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 1080 has 5120 MB more video memory than the GTX 1080 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 has 156.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1080 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 is massively better than the GTX 1080 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1080 SLI has 5120 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has 3584. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 11978 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is 7654. The GTX 1080 having 4324 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1080 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1080 SLI requires 360 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti requires 220 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 1080 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 1080 Ti. The GTX 1080 requires 140 Watts more than the GTX 1080 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1080 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1080 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 1080 put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.

Architecture
The Pascal Architecture aims for even more Energy Efficiency by using a 16nm FinFET Process and an Improved Version of the Delta Color Compression Algorithm, as well as the use of Second-Gen GDDR5X.

GPU
It consists of 2 GPUs Codenamed P104-400-A1 which, together, offer 5120 Shader Processing Units, 320 TMUs and 128 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1607MHz and goes up to 1733MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
Each GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Second-Gen GDDR5X, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1251MHz.

Power Consumption
Power Consumption is around 350W.

Performance
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 25% Performance Boost over a Single GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 70% at 3840x2160.
