At a recent showcase prior to GDC this year, NVIDIA revealed their new upcoming gaming GPU, the GeForce GTX 1080Ti. PC gamers and graphics enthusiasts can look forward to pre-ordering this new NVIDIA graphics card starting tomorrow.
Built on Pascal architecture, the GTX 1080 Ti is touted to be thirty-five percent faster than NVIDIA’s previous GTX 1080 thanks to its impressive horsepower, G5X memory, and 11 GB frame buffer. This new GPU also features NVIDIA’s impressive Ansel technology, which allows users to capture and create 360-degree interactive screenshots that can be viewed on mobile devices, PC, and VR headsets.
Pre-orders for the upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will begin tomorrow, March 9th, at 8:00 am PST on the NVIDIA pre-order page. According to the NVIDIA website, the GTX 1080 Ti is priced at $699 USD.
If you can’t quite afford NVIDIA’s beefy new gaming GPU, you can still opt for another one of their 10-series graphics cards, such as the original GTX 1080. During the same presentation, NVIDIA also announced that the pricing for the GTX 1080 will be reduced to $499 USD, a $50 savings.
For those who missed out on the NVIDIA showcase, you can watch the entire presentation in the video linked above. Along with the announcements, the presentation also showcases the GeForce’s performance in DX12.
