Detailed Specification

 

It's not all about the upgraded GDDR5X @ 11Gbps, but NVIDIA has been tweaking the Pascal architecture for a while now - and it doesn't start and end with the new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. There's an overclocked GTX 1080 rocking the same GDDR5X clocked at 11Gbps, and a new GTX 1060 with faster GDDR5 memory at 9Gbps - but we'll get into that later.

First, let's talk about the improvements that NVIDIA has made to the Pascal architecture on the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

We have a GPU that has a whopping 12 billion transistors, with the GPU hitting 1.6GHz on base, and 2GHz when overclocked. There are 28 SMs with 128 cores each - and a huge 3584 CUDA cores. 28 geometry units, 224 TMUs, 6 GPCs, 88 ROPs - and of course, 11GB of GDDR5X at 11Gbps.

 

Display connectivity wise, NVIDIA has dropped the DVI connector from the GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition but includes a DVI to DisplayPort dongle in the box. AIB partners have already shown cards with a DVI connector, so either way, if it's a requirement for you monitor wise, you'll be fine.

 

 

Founders Edition FTW

 

I'm a big fan of the physical look of the Founders Edition cards directly from NVIDIA, so when it comes to the physical style of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition, I feel nothing but love.

The style is simple, yet sleek - and the blower-style fan works incredibly well. My headphones are on when I'm gaming, which is the only time the card makes any noise - silent during low loads - thank you.

The backplate with 'GeForce GTX 1080 Ti' printed into it looks great and will look even better when there's a pair of GTX 1080 Ti cards in SLI.

Even with all of this power, up to 35% faster than GTX 1080 and NVIDIA is requiring only an 8+6-pin PCIe power connector setup on the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition.
