Leaked NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Specs Competes Titan X; GPU Slated To Be Released On Jan. 17?


On the latest leak on NVIDIA's new high-end graphics unit, called GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, PC makers and gamers believed that the said GPU will compete against other older models through boosted clock speeds and price.

According to PC Gamer, a forum member at Overclock3D leaked the purported details of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Based on the report, the said GPU is said to be made using NVIDIA's GP102 GPU core design, which means that it is based on the same GPU as the GTX Titan Pascal.

If the leaked specs appears to be true, the upcoming GTX 1080 Ti will be at par with those of the GTX 1080, GTX 1070, and Titan X. However, the former will have a few notable improvements from the older models.

According to reports, the GTX 1080 Ti's boost and base clock speeds are timed at 1.6 and 1.5 GHz respectively, compared to Titan X's 1.4 and 1.5 base and boost clock speeds, which could translate into 10.8 TFLOPs of compute power, just under the Titan X's 11 TFLOPs.

Furthermore, the upcoming GPU will be an edge above the vanilla GTX 1080 since it boosts a much higher 384 GB/s on a 384-bit bus like the GTX Titan X.

In addition, YIBADA reported that the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will be powered with a total of 12GB of video random access memory, which is comparative with the Titan X, although the latter runs on GDDR5X while the former runs on GDDR5.

Meanwhile, Titan X still has a significant advantage against the upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, as it will only have 52 streaming multiprocessor units, compared with that of the former, which is said to have 56. When it comes to memory bandwidth, Titan X surpasses GTX 1080 Ti with its 12GB worth of memory as the latter has only 5GB.

It is expected that NVIDIA's next big video card GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will be released in the early months of 2017. Specifically, rumors indicate that NVIDIA will showcase their latest Pascal-based GPU in January 2017, preferably during NVIDIA's presentation at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
