Nvidia launches Project Shield gaming console

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 is indeed one of the strongest graphics cards to date as it boasts a whopping 60 frames per second at a full 4K resolution screen. However, despite this seeming specs magnificence, it costs a sweet $1,200 to get one.

Perfect Graphics Card For 4K Gaming

The GeForce GTX 1080 also needs the similar 250-watt TDP that the previous Titan X has. This means that it needs more than just a single power pin to function; which is then again, a slight turn off when compared to the vanilla GTX 1080.

According to PC World, it needs both an 8 pin and 6 pin connector. This means that it requires more additional accessories to efficiently power up its high-end performance system. What makes the GTX 1080 one of the most powerful graphics cards is that its power delivery system has been enhanced.

Thanks to the 7-phase 2x dual-FET power design, it becomes more energy efficient, thereby enabling it to have a dramatic boost in its clock speed. This also means that it has a greater capacity in running today's latest games that need a significant amount of computing power.

Enhanced Cooling System Manages Roaring Specs

Various benchmark tests also confirmed that the GeForce GTX 1080 can reach a whopping 2GHz overclocking speed. But with this higher clock speed come the need of the GTX 1080 Ti to have a better cooling system.

According to Tech Report, Nvidia redesigned its cooling system to give twice the airflow compared to the previous GTX 1080. Despite an hour of usage, the CPU hasn't exhibited too much heat, a proof that the buffed up airflow works. What makes the GeForce GTX 1080 a really good buy is that Nvidia hasn't incorporated a premium price for it when comparing it to how the GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 Founders Edition were priced.
