The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is the upcoming GPU from NVIDIA, which has been the subject of many speculations and rumors in the Internet. This new GPU is going to be launched by the company in January of 2017 in time with the CES event. However, rumor has it that this new graphics card should be much better compared to the GTX Titan X.
Thus, fans are beginning to wonder, which of the 2 GPUs is going to advance when it becomes available in the market. Basically, the GTX 1080 Ti has a GP102 GPU, 3328 CUDA cores, 208 texture mappings units, and 160 render output units. Likewise, its graphics card has a clock speed of 1503MHz with 10 teraflops HP.
Cheaper Price Tag
The GTX Titan X, however, has a 28nm GM200-400 GPU, 3072 CUDA cores, 192 texture mapping units, and 96 render output units. At the same time, the video card likewise has a 1002MHz base clock speed. Although this is only a slight comparison, there are many reports that have surfaced that the new GPU will arrive in the market to bear a much cheaper price tag than its predecessor the Titan X.
Better Memory Frequency
In comparison to the Titan X, the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has better memory frequency. In fact, the new hardware unit will have a 384GB/s Memory Bandwidth than the 336GB/s of the Titan X. Experts in the industry also stated that the new product will have a higher performance than the previously released GTX Titan X.
Although these two devices have been expected to dominate the GPU market next year, there is another product to be released by AMD. This is said to be a new video card that should be able to challenge the 2 powerful hardware units from NVIDIA.
With the huge range of graphics cards, NVIDIA has always created its share of innovativeness. The upcoming release of the GTX 1080 Ti will surely achieve the same objectives among tech lovers. The only challenge is that will it be able to compete with the Titan X, which also has an impressive background of its own.
Release Date of GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
According to sources, the new updated GPU will be launched in 2017 at the CES event. This graphics card will be carrying a 10GB video RAM. Perhaps it is safe to say that this newly released GPU will be a supercharged GTX 1080, as its predecessor has shown great promise.
It has been rumored that NVIDIA will increase the base clock from its previous model of 1503MHz to 1623MHz, while its 3,328 CUDA cores will be 3,584 cores. Needless to say, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will have to be carefully positioned at the high-end so that it will not cause much remorse for the buyers who have spent much on the Titan X.
Perhaps all these rumors and speculations will be resolved as soon as the product arrives in January.
