    My video card on my desktop gamer died so I threw the 1070 I had in my Akitio Node into the desktop (how i figured out the old card died).  With black friday deals, I scored a decent price on a 1080.  

Now I'm wondering, do I gain anything from putting the 1080 into the Node? or am I so limited by my dell xps 13 that I won't see any benefit over the 1070?  Thanks

i put the 1080 in my gaming desktop and the 1070 in the node. You will get minor gains in the node with the 1080 vs near 25% gains in the desktop pc.
