Nvidia Finally Introduces GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Graphics Card
Faster than Titan X at a much lower price, Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card is finally here. By launching its new GTX 1080 Ti, Nvidia is preempting rival AMD's Vega by a couple of months.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Looks Similar To Titan X Pascal
According to PC Gamer, GTX 1080 Ti looks much like the Titan X Pascal with a few tweaks, as with the prior top-shelf Ti cards. Rumors about the upcoming card were circulating for months, but most of them proved to be wrong. In fact, with the same GP102 core, both the GTX 1080 Ti and Titan XP have up to 3,840 CUDA cores. However, both GPUs use only 3.584 CUDA cores, by disabling two clusters (256 CUDA cores).
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Specs & Features
The GTX 1080 Ti will be a gaming powerhouse, designed for gamers who want to play 1440p 144Hz or 4K 60Hz. The card can even deliver good graphics performance on one of the upcoming 4K 120/144Hz HDR displays. With 352-bit memory bus, the 1080 Ti ships with 11 GB of 11 Gbps GDDR5X.
The exact numbers for the GPU clocks are not revealed yet. All we know at the moment is that the card will allow a typical boost clock of 1.6GHz. Overclocking to 2 GHz or more on the stock cooling is also possible since Nvidia has also improved the cooling.
In terms of memory bandwidth and raw compute performance, the 1080 Ti actually rates higher than the Titan XP, one percent more bandwidth and eight percent more compute. According to PC World, Nvidia says that on average the Ti will be 35 percent faster than a GTX 1080. That's a significant jump in performance that comes with a lower TDP of 220W.
Nvidia also revealed some details on its tiled caching architecture that, on average, improves effective memory bandwidth by about 30 percent. This architecture combined with compression technologies provide a substantially higher effective memory bandwidth of the 1080 Ti. Nvidia has also improved the efficiency of the power delivery system for the 1080 Ti.
The initial GTX 1080 Ti cards will all be Founders Edition models, but later on, the card will also come in custom designs. However, the custom designs will have the same MSRP as Founders Edition. The 1080 Ti MSRP is $699 at the launch.
