Nvidia GTX 1080 Benchmark Embargo Lifted - 20-25% Perf Increase Over Titan X For $599

(credit ArsTechnica)

It officially launches on May 27th, but expect supply shortages and prices above MSRP.

Considering the Titan X has more CUDA cores, more ROPs, more Texture Unit processors, larger memory bus interface and higher memory bandwidth, this is damn impressive performance. It's not too surprising though considering this is the first card on a new 16nm FinFET manufacturing process; Nvidia has been using 28nm for almost two years. This is what allows them to push the Pascal GPU core above 2Ghz (Titan X ~ 1.3GHz OC'd) while using 70W less than Titan X. 

It's not enough for me to upgrade but it's a great introduction to Nvidia's new Pascal GPU. I'm holding out for future iterations of Pascal that push 4K resolutions above 60Hz with highest in-game settings.

Here's some YouTube links from Digital Foundry showing in-game performance comparisons: 1080p, 1440p, and 2160p (4K).

Bioshock - Medical Pavilion UE4 Remake

(click to watch video)

This wasn't officially done by 2K but hopefully the rumored Bioshock collection is also being remastered to look almost this good and not just a re-release with updated compatibility.

DOOM (PC) For $32.66

Bethesda didn't offer early release copies to reviewers but so far hands-on reviews are really positive. The MP meh, but the SP campaign sounds awesome - great level design, map UI, gameplay mechanics, weapon upgrade system, enemy variety, fast-paced action, bloody finishing moves, and added replay value through collectibles and difficulty levels.

Even better, save 45% when you purchase the game here through CDKEYS.com and use the promo code "DOOM666".

Battleborn: Live Together or Die Alone - Story Trailer

(click pic for video)

I played some of the closed beta and it was okay. The loot system felt very similar to Borderlands but the gameplay was a little different, mainly because most characters don't use guns. Might try the open beta on 13 Apr.
