Today Nvidia finally announced the latest in their line of graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which is a card that we heard many rumours about and Nvidia have repeatedly teased.
Today the rumours and teaser are finally over, to be released in between the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and the Titan X, it is the fastest consumer-grade graphics card that is based on Nvidia’s Pascal GPU architecture.
The card is based on the same “GP102” silicon as the Titan X Pascal, but with slightly fewer CUDA cores at 3,584, lower memory at 11GB, and a slightly narrower 352-bit with GDDR5X memory interface combined with some new memory chips that provides a bandwidth 484 GB/s.
The ROP count has also been lowered to 88 from 96 on the Titan X Pascal, however, the TMU count has been left unchanged at 224.
The GPU core of the GTX 1080 Ti has been clocked at a boost frequency of up to 1.60 GHz, with the ability to overclock it beyond the 2.00 GHz. To top that off, there’s a newer memory chip and an optimized memory interface that is running at 11 Gbps.
They have also fitted it out with Nvidia’s Tiled Rendering Technology.
The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will be available from March 10th, however, you will be able to pre-order one from March 2nd from Nvidia’s website.
It will be available for $699 in the US.
