NVIDIA announced its new-generation consumer-class GPUs over the weekend based on the Pascal architecture, GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070.
Designed for the 16nm FinFET process, the GTX 1080 features 2560 CUDA cores, 8GB of GDDR5X memory, 256-bit memory interface and core clock of up to 1733MHz. It claims to provide up to 2x more performance in virtual reality compared to the GeForce GTX TITAN X.
The GTX 1080 will be available on May 27 for $599, and it’s interesting that there’ll be a GeForce GTX 1080 “Founders Edition” priced at $699. Actually, it’s exactly the reference design that we usually refer to.
The GeForce GTX 1080 reference card only has a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, and its display connector layout looks like the previous generation according to TechPowerUp.
