NVIDIA has presented the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti – a $699 graphics card that is said to outperform the mighty Titan X. The card will offer up to 1.6GHz boost clocks and an “OC” clock of 2GHz. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti features 12 billion transistors and 3,584 CUDA cores.
The new card also offers 11GB of GDDR5X. This number is said to be perfect for all the demanding games.
Here is official breakdown:
- Massive Features for Massive Performance: The GTX 1080 Ti includes 3,584 NVIDIA® CUDA® cores and a massive 11GB frame buffer running at an unheard of 11Gbps. It delivers up to 35 percent faster performance than the GeForce GTX 1080 and up to 78 percent faster performance than the GTX 1070. The GTX 1080 Ti is even faster than the NVIDIA TITAN X Pascal, its $1,200 big brother that was designed for deep learning and artificial intelligence.
- Next-Gen Memory Architecture: GTX 1080 Ti is the world’s first GPU to feature Micron’s next-gen G5X memory. 11GB of G5X memory running a blazing 11Gbps quad data rate delivers the most effective memory bandwidth of any modern gaming GPU. And it still has plenty of headroom for overclocking.
- Advanced FinFET Process: The GTX 1080 Ti is manufactured on the industry’s cutting-edge FinFET process. Its 12 billion transistors deliver a dramatic increase in performance and efficiency over previous-generation products.
- Meticulous Craftsmanship: The GTX 1080 Ti runs as cool as it looks due to superior heat dissipation from a new high-airflow thermal solution with vapor chamber cooling, 2x the airflow area and a power architecture featuring a seven-phase power design with 14 high-efficiency dualFETs.
- Support for Advanced Graphics Technologies: 4K, VR, NVIDIA G-SYNC™ HDR and NVIDIA GameWork offer interactive, cinematic experiences accompanied by incredibly smooth gameplay.
The company is said to have redesigned both the cooling solution and power supply for the card compared to the GeForce GTX 1080. It is also worth mentioning that the card is rated at 220W TDP, falling shy of the Titan X Pascal’s 250 watts.
Nvidia’s tests show it to be 35 percent faster than a standard GTX 1080, making it the “best” Ti card yet.
The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will launch next week, so you won’t have to wait long.
