  • Nvidia Announces GTX 1080Ti - 35% Performance Gains, $699 Price, Arrives March 5

    Nvidia delivered some damn fine news yesterday during their early GDC 2017 presentation. First off, Nvidia has officially lowered the MSRP for the base GTX 1080 by $100 (USD). This puts the MSRP to around $500 for the 1080.

    After they did this, they announced the GTX 1080Ti for $699. This $700 card offers more performance than a Titan X Pascal for well under the Titan X's $1200 asking price.

    What are we looking at here with the 1080Ti? It features 11GB of GDDR5X RAM, memory speed of 11Gbps, and a Boost Clock of 1582MHz. A look at how this compares to the Titan X, the GTX 1080, and the 980Ti can be found below.

    Thanks to AnandTech for the comparison information.

    As it stands, consumers can go for the GTX 1080 which is now $100 cheaper and get an amazing card, or they can spend $200 more and go for the newly announced GTX 1080Ti which is slated to out perform the $1200 Titan X. Alternatively, they can continue waiting until around May to see what AMD offers with their Radeon RX Vega video cards.

    The GTX 1080Ti is slated to be released starting March 5 for the Founder's Edition. Other models from third-party manufacturers with customized cooling solutions are expected to follow very shortly after.
