GALAX Teases Their Take on the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
Bohs Hansen / 3 weeks ago
Nvidia’s latest flagship graphics card is almost here and we see more and more companies takes on the new and impressive GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. Now, GALAX has shown one of their new cards in a teaser image. The card isn’t fully launched yet, so we don’t get any details and specifications.
We know from previously teased cards from other manufacturers that it will run off a double 8-pin power connector. We also know the official Founder’s Edition card specs such as the GP102 GPU with 3584 CUDA cores, 224 TMUs, and 88 ROPs. The reference clock speeds should be set to 1480 MHz base clock while the Turbo goes up to 1582 MHz. With aftermarket coolers and a possible custom PCB design, there is a good chance that the above-pictured GALAX card will run faster than that. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards come with 11264 MB GDDR5X memory that is clocked at 1376 MHz on the reference Founder’s Edition card. Again, that speed might get a bump up on custom cards such as this.
I think the waters will be split whether people like or dislike the design of this card. The good news in this regard is that we most likely can expect a more than beautiful HoF version of the card too. This one could just be a reference card with a custom cooler, but we won’t know that until the official release. A classic HoF card in beautiful white and the HoF’s renown extreme clocks would surely be sweet in any rig.
Previously, we’ve already seen ASUS, MSI, EVGA, INNO3D, Zotac, and Founder’s Edition cards shown and teased. Are you ready for Nvidia’s newest flagship with a 35%+ performance increase or are you happy with the card(s) you got now? If you haven’t made up your mind yet, then stay tuned for our full review on the new GPU once the launch is a reality.
