After the endless rumors, Nvidia has finally launched the GeForce GTX 1080Ti video card at the Game Developers Conference 2017 in San Francisco. According to Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, the GTX 1080Ti is 35 percent faster than its predecessor, the base GTX 1080, and even faster than the Titan X.
The GeForce GTX 1080Ti comes with 12 billion transistors and 3,584 CUDA cores, and especially 11 GB of 11 Gbps DDR5X VRAM, compared to the old GTX 1080’s 8 GB. Despite the fact that the Titan X packs more RAM, 12GB, it runs at slower speeds of 10 Gbps. The new card also offers support for advanced graphics technologies, including 4K PC gaming, VR, Nvidia G-Sync HDR, and Nvidia GameWorks. Regarding the GPU clocks, the GTX 1080Ti is capable of running faster than the GP102 in the Titan X, and is clocked at 1,480MHz with a boost clock of 1,582MHzz.
The GTX 1080Ti comes in a new dualIFET design that makes it possible to run with more power, and even more efficiently than its predecessor. Not stopping there, the card comes equipped with the new NVTTM design that has the latest Vapor chamber cooling system with twice the cooling area that aids in keeping the GTX 1080Ti cool and quiet under heavy gaming loads.
The GeForce GTX 1080Ti will hit stores worldwide starting on March 10th, starting at $699. Preorders for the graphics card have begun from March 2 on Nvidia’s website. So, the GTX 1080Ti is slightly more expensive than the GTX 1080, but a lot cheaper than the $1,200 Titan X.
