The Nvidia GTX 1080 is a high top-tier gaming GPU, based on the Nvidia Pascal architecture and the GP104 core. The GTX 1080 can be found in laptops priced as low as $1700 (with previous CPU generation) with the lower end of typical prices being around $2300-$2600. The GTX 1080 performance is adequate for 1080p and 1440p resolutions, easily running all games, highest graphics settings, at at least 60FPS or near it with most games running at much higher FPSs or 60FPS at 4K (Rise of the Tomb Rider, Gears of War, The Division, BF1 and more). Using lower than the highest graphic settings, the 1080 can deal with VR resolutions at high FPSs in many games.

Relatively to the GTX 1070, the 1080 delivers around 10-30% higher performance (with a desktop I7-8700K) according to my tests, with the biggest advantages in higher resolutions (1440p and 4K). A GPU like the GTX 1080 can be “too fast” for some CPUs, meaning they are not able to feed it with data fast enough, so, for example, laptops with an I7-7700HQ might see lower FPSs. Therefore, the 1080 cost efficiency of current GTX 1080 laptops is not as good as GTX 1070 equipped laptops for typical prices.

At 150-200W of power consumption, the GTX 1080 is pretty hot and requires hotter hardware besides itself. I would not go for thinner laptops, if longevity of the laptop is important, since hotter electric parts tend to die sooner. There is an ample selection of bulkier laptops that can deal with the heat output of hot GPU/CPU like these.

As a recommendation, the GTX 1080 offerings are not meant to be cost effective. They are mostly meant to provide a pick performance for those who desire/need it. Current gaming requirements are easily met with even a GTX 1070, if you are willing to play at less than highest graphics settings. On the other hand, if you’re running 1440p at highest settings, high resolution VR or 4K, you might want to opt for the 1080 or 1080 Ti (or some kind of SLI), but consider it carefully.

The Pascal based GPUs, are about to be replaced with next generation Nvidia GPUs, starting at the end of 2018. I would suggest waiting until then, unless it can be bought for a significantly low price.
