I agree on the situation with the different cards.
1070 shines on eth due to its gddr5, but the gddr5x isnt so good, hence the 1080 suffering, but of course the extra cuda cores on the 1080 and 1080ti help them on other coins. so for those 2 cards other coins are definitely better than eth at a comfortable margin.
vivo spike has already ended, so even on whattomine now for the 1070 all the altcoins look poor. So I think I am gonna just go back to eth after I trade this monacoin, but the 2 coins I think I am stuck with as I they too low value to cash out.
But looking at the 1080 the altcoins are about 30% stronger than on the 1070. Whilst at the same eth is about 20% weaker than on the 1070. So the gap is a chasm rather than a crack. Even if you take into account the pool issues with last N shares of block etc. the alt coins will be better on a 1080 than a 1070, so I am not disagreeing with you on that.
A 1070ti in theory has the best of both worlds over a 1080 as it only has slightly less cores than a 1080 and still has gddr 5 memory, so good at eth and altcoins, but of course will still suffer compared to a 1080ti on alt coins.
Regarding the bitcoin problem, when bitcoin dips again I will probably buy some more, I will then send it to bittrex, merge it with the small balance and then send it all back to cex so it can be sold at a later date after another growrth spurt..
