The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is NVIDIA’s new flagship gaming GPU, based on the NVIDIA Pascal architecture. The latest addition to the ultimate gaming platform, this card is packed with extreme gaming horsepower, 3,584 CUDA cores and next-gen 11 Gbps GDDR5X memory, and a massive 11 GB frame buffer.
The card also reworks the already efficient cooling system found in previous GTX cards using a new high-airflow thermal solution. Nvidia says that the card also has a new seven-phase power design with 14 high-efficiency dualFETs that deliver better power efficiency at the highest usage and power levels.
The GTX 1080 Ti beats out the regular GTX 1080 in most specifications, with 11 GB of 11 Gbps DDR5X VRAM, compared to its predecessor’s 8 GB. And while the Titan X has more RAM — 12 GB — it runs at slower speeds of 10 Gbps, and falls very slightly behind the new card in terms of bandwidth and compute power. The GTX 1080 Ti also isn’t as much of a power hog as the $1,200 Titan X, pulling 220 watts, compared to the older card’s 250.
