Nvidia Launches GeForce GTX 1080 Ti at GDC GeForce Celebration

As expected, Nvidia has finally revealed their top dog graphics card for Pascal. Coming 9 months after the initial wave of GeForce 10 cards, the “Ultimate GeForce” runs the same GP102 die used in the Titan X Pascal. While Nvidia was a bit light on the details, we do have some specifications we can share with you right away.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Core Diagram Overview

First up, the GTx 1080 Ti has a total of 12 Billion Transistors making up 3584 CUDA cores, 208 TMUs and 96 ROPs. Compared to the GTX 1080, it is a full 35% faster out of the box and is even faster than the Titan X Pascal due to it’s higher clocks. There is a total of 11GB of GDDR5X over the 352bit interface with about 484 GB/s of bandwidth. Clocking in at 1600 MHz boost, it features a TDP of 220W, slightly less than the Titan X Pascal.

To cool the massive GPU, Nvidia has turned to a vapor chamber design. This is supplemented by a new cooling fin array arrangement which doubles the surface area. This makes it cooler than the GTX 1080 for either 2db less and 5c cooler. Even overclocked to over 2 GHz, the stock cooler has no issue with temperatures, keeping it at about 66 C. The power delivery system has been amped up to 250A and a dual 7 phase FET design for 14 FETs in total. Power is provided by a 6+8 pin PCIe power connectors.

More importantly, Nvidia is setting the price at a relatively low bar. At just $699, the GTX 1080 Ti could be yours. Of course, I expect some compute power will be cut out compared to the Titan X Pascal. So far, Nvidia has not revealed if there will be any partner cards or will it be just a Nvidia exclusive. Given previous rumors, it is no surprise that the card is in full production and availability starts next week.
