3584 Pixel Pipelines
1556 MHz Base Clock
1670 MHz Boost Clock

"EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW GAMING, 08G-P4-6288-KR, 8GB GDDR5X, HYBRID & RGB LED" at $600 for:
2560 Pixel Pipelines
1721 MHz Base Clock
1860 MHz Boost Clock
275.3GT/s Texture Fill Rate
8192 MB, 256 bit GDDR5X
10000 MHz (effective)
320 GB/s Memory Bandwidth

...if money were not an object?

I am *guessing* the higher pipeline, fill rate, mem & bandwidth numbers of 1080 Ti SC make up for the higher clock of 1080 FTW? I am pretty sure they do for gaming (which I don't do), but what about BOINC computation projects like GPUGRID/SETI/PrimeGrid/MooWrapper etc. (which I do do)?

The GP102 in the 1080ti is much faster in this project because it is more reliant on core than memory or memory bandwidth. The more cores the merrier and GPU core clock is so similar between the 1080 and 1080ti that it's not going to get anywhere near the 1080ti. I highly recommend the 1080ti for not only 4k 60fps ultra gaming but this project would greatly benefit from its speed and power efficiency.

Thank you! I was wondering because I have had the 1080ti+hybridkit on preorder for a few weeks now as they are severely backordered, but the 1080hybrid is available to order today. Wanted to see if it was worth the wait. Seems it is...

Any differing opinions?

No. You should wait for the Ti, it's worth it!
If you browse the "Performance" tab, you could see it for yourself.

Zoltan, what brand 1080ti did you get and what clockspeed are mem freq are you running it at? Also have you considered moving that card to linux as 9.14 is still the app on linux with none of the slowdowns of 9.18?

It's a Gigabyte AORUS GeForce GTX 1080Ti.
By default its GPU is running at 1987MHz, the memory is at 5000MHz.
I've set it to 2000/5500MHz, but it just keeps on switching back.
Luckily I can re-set to the overclocked frequencies without restart.

Also have you considered moving that card to linux as 9.14 is still the app on linux with none of the slowdowns of 9.18?
Yes, but I don't sense the slowdown, perhaps because I did not have this card before the 9.18 app.
