sounds underwhelming.



Yeah this.

The 1080 itself is already starting to struggle with some games at 1080p like dishonered 2, arma 3, and watch dogs 2. I game on a 1440p monitor so I'm screwed.


No, it's absolutely not struggling at 1080p. It can still easily max any game out there at a constant 60 fps. Maybe it wasn't able to in Dishonored 2 at release, but that was due to horrible optimization, and had nothing to do with the card itself. And besides, those issues have been fixed.



Nah man try playing Arma 3 with max render distance on and on a server with 100+ players. I get a whopping 10-30 fps.

Then try playing Witcher 3 at 1080p with hairworks on and with mods to increase graphical settings from ultra>supreme>ultimate.. A whopping 30 fps with everything set to ultimate. Only way to play 60+ fps witcher 3 is to turn shadows and foliage distance to Ultra (from Ultimate) and keep hairworks off. On 1440p the game still drops down to the 55 fps range when I am in very dense forests w/ HDR mimic shader activated and texture mod.

Watch Dog 2 runs at a whopping 30 fps on max as well.

Arma is CPU bound. Highlighting a couple small examples of needing to turn down one incredibly intensive setting to high, or pinpointing a clearly broken release (dishonored 2) doesn't mean the card is "struggling" at 1080p. That's incredibly misleading.



I run the Witcher 3 at a dead stop 60 fps and never seen a drop and everything is maxed out at 1080p with hairworks on full.

This will be most likely the gtx 970/r9 390-story all over again.
