I am holding out for the Nvidia 1080Ti to come out, as I plan to purchase a Velox system with 1080Ti in SLI mode. However, given compatibility issues (i.e. gaming industry seemingly abandoning SLI support), am I be better off with one Titan X card?

I know this is a difficult question to answer since 1080Ti is not released. But would like opinions given that some tech specs have been leaked.

Sole use is gaming (not video encoding, rendering etc).

Rumor is, for what it's worth, is the gtx 1080 ti will be close to or the same as Titan X Pascal performance for less money.    There won't be any comparison between single Titan and sli 1080ti, either way, sli Ti a lot stronger.   Depends on you monitors what is best for you.

I am also waiting to see what the 1080 ti is all about. From what I have read it will be Titan X for less money. I have two 980's and from what I see in my system a lot of the games never even utilize sli. So I am going to not due sli any more unless huge price drop in 1080's then maybe sli two 1080's but even then that's a big iffy

Latest news is the gtx 1080 Ti won't show until mid March, waiting to see what AMD has to offer. They don't want to take away from sales of the more expensive Titan X if not needed.

I currently have 2x 980TI's in SLI and while it looks cool, when I eventually upgrade a couple years down the road I plan on going with a single card and just going with a good OC on it.  Buying 2x water blocks every time would be a pain anyways lol. Oops

SLI for life. I'm planning on dropping my tri-sli GTX 980 Ti's for GTX 1080 Ti SLI. I've seen the reverse. More and more games are supporting SLI Profiles these days.

Really just depends on your needs. For example, there are certain situations where you'll actually hit a DR wall at 1080p using a GTX 1080. So obviously a dual 1080 Sli would be a terrible decision. Odds are, unless you're trying to play at 4k on max settings and achieve over 100 FPS... dual 1080 Ti's will probably be the way go to. Otherwise, you could probably settle on just one and be fine.

This is speculation of how the 1080 Ti will perform, obviously.
