GTX 1080 uses industry-first GDDR5X RAM
GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards are powered by Pascal to deliver up to 3x the performance of previous-generation graphics cards, plus innovative new gaming technologies and breakthrough VR experiences.
UP TO 3X-FASTER PERFORMANCE
LATEST GAMING TECHNOLOGIES
Ultimate NEW DESIGN
The new GeForce GTX 1080 is meticulously crafted to offer superior heat dissipation using vapor chamber cooling technology and premium materials, so it runs as cool as it looks.
Graphics cards based on the GTX 1080 will be available on May 27, with an starting price of $599 (approximately Rs. 39,900) while GTX 1070 cards will go on sale June 10 starting at $379 (approximately Rs. 25,250). There will also be “founders’ editions” of both cards, promising extreme overclocking, for $699 and $449 respectively.
The GTX 1080 can push out 9 Teraflops of single-precision graphics compute power and has 8GB of VRAM, which is incidentally Micron’s new, faster GDDR5X RAM running at 10Gbps for a total bandwidth of 320GBps. Power requirement is pegged at 180W, and Nvidia lists a 500W power supply as adequate for a PC with a single one of these cards. The GTX 1070 is rated for 6.5 Teraflops and also has 8GB of VRAM, but of the ordinary GDDR5 variety. Further details of the GTX 1070 are not available yet, but it should share several capabilities with its bigger sibling, including support for DirectX 12_1, OpenGL 4.5, Vulkan, and Nvidia’s own G-Sync, Gamestream, and GPU Boost.
