Think of it like lanes on a road.

On a hypothetical one lane road traffic might move at 40mph on a single lane.

On another road it is a 2 lane road (same direction) but the speed limit is only 30mph.

The first road has a lower latency due to its higher speed, but because it is only one lane the 2nd road with 2 lanes at 30mph has a higher bandwidth despite the slower mph (latency).

For eth mining it is, I would expect this card to be noticeably slower at eth mining than a 1070. Skeptical of their claims of 35 MH/s mining eth with this thing.

Not sure how other algorithms scale with the increased bandwidth and increased latency of GDDR5X.

Sooo its a GTX 1080 11GBPS with 640 less CUDA cores...and half the GDDR5X...yet manages 40% better hashrate hahahaaha yeah right...

For non-Ethhash algorithms (except POSSIBLY Cryptonight as used on Monero), GDDR5x doesn't seem to have a noticeable effect.

I would BET on this card mining SLOWER than a standard 1070 though - they went about it ALL WRONG for a "mining card", put the LOWER CAPABILITY G104 GPU with the INFERIOR ram.

GTX 1080 is an INFERIOR ETH mining card to the 1070, despite the MANY MORE CORES, precisely BECAUSE of the GDDR 5x issue.

Given the stats on it, this card better price at a good bit LESS than the 1070 to have a market at all, given the really STUPID design choices made on it.

I mean the 1080 isn't awful for mining. My 1080 with gddr5x is mining Eth at 27.9 Mh/s with only +120 on the core and +400 on memory and 80% power limit. That's on par with a stock 1070, plus my rig is a gaming machine that simply mines in my spare time, so the gaming performance over a 1070 is for sure worth that hash drop. Oh and if I do like you do with a 1070 and push the memory offset out to +600 I net 28.4Mh/s but I'm all for preserving the longevity of my gpu...its on water and NEVER exceeds 45c.

ETH is a VERY BAD choice to mine on a 1080 - many other coins like ZEN and ZTC that are far more profitiably.
Your hashrate on a 1080 is also no better than a RX 470/480/570/580 can manage, which are all SUB-$300 cards even with current STILL GOUGE PRICING on AMD mid-and-upper range GPUs.
Same issue but less so on the 1070, which costs less than the 1080 AND has higher hashrate on ETH but still costs quite a bit more than the "almost same performance" AMD Polaris options.

For gaming, the 1080 is the second-best "reasonable price" choice currently availble - the Pascal Titans and the Titan V are also better but not reasonably priced for gaming cards, which leaves the 1080 ti.

I mean yeah its only the second best consumer gaming graphics card. Considering it was $210 less than a ti I wasn't too worried. Again considering it has double the gaming performance of 580 with only 57% of the value in cost/Mh its not a big deal this is a gaming rig, I'm not looking to make big money as a hardcore miner, just a few bucks while I sleep or am away. ZTC seems kinda dead, now ZEN on the other hand might be a good option. Currently I'm dual mining ETH and DCR at about $3.56/day. ZEN with 500+sol for $4.08/day would be a nice bump. Thanks for the tip!
