Nvidia launches Project Shield gaming console

Nvidia has unveiled the latest update to the company's high-end graphics processor line. The GPU, called the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, delivers high processing power for gaming, virtual reality, and other intensive tasks. According to Nvidia, the chip comes with 11Gbps memory speed and has a memory bandwidth of 484GB per second. Generally, the GeForce GTX 1080 TI's features help it to deliver three times the performance users would find in the previous Nvidia GPU. Clearly, that this graphics chip will find its way to high-end computers, However, for users who want to get an access to this processing power should expect to pay more for any computer packed with the GTX 1080 Ti.

According to a source, the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti has an enhanced seven-phase 2x dual-FET power design for cleaner power with less heat, which does a great job of feeding the GTX 1080 Ti's 250W TDP via its 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors. At the center of the card, there is same Pascal architecture GP102 GPU being used in the Titan XP. There are the same 28 SMs and 3,584 CUDA cores out of a probable 3,840. In the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti, other than unoptimized ports, it should be able to max out the most graphically-demanding games with just playable frame rates. Interestingly, this is an incredible accomplishment for a single graphics card.

Indeed, Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti is the fastest gaming graphics card money can buy. It's even faster than the 1,200 e-peen extension that is the Titan X Pascal and also much powerful than the GTX 1080 too, which comes with a cheaper price. It's the first graphics card since the Titan XP which can play many games in 4K at 60FPS without messing around with settings. As for the price, the chip alone costs for $699.
