The recent release of Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card is a great news for fans of powerful PC games. Like previously Nvidia did justification to its GPUs and came with the strongest and fastest one this time as well. It is better to make a comparison with GeForce GTX 1080, the earlier version from the firm, released in last May. It was considered as the fastest while it was released.

The 1080 Ti is looking quite similar to GTX 1080 as it is using the later's external chassis. It is a two slot card similar to last year version with dimension 10.5 inches length and 4.3 inches height. GTX 1080 Ti has an improved Thermal Design Power with 250-watt TDP, a major change from GTX 1080's 180-watt. In general, it has better CUDA cores, video RAM, and texture units compared to its predecessor. However, there is minor performance drop noted in boost and core clocks.

While coming to detailed specifications, the additional 3GB of GDDR5X video RAM is making a significant change in the total performance of the graphics card, and it gives VRAM improved to 11GB. Additionally, GTX 1080 Ti has 352-bit memory bus width; this can cycle peak memory at 484GB/s. The processor is Intel Core i7-5930K Haswell-E CPU, and it is clocked at 3.9GHz making it a real powerhouse. The memory is spotted at 16GB DDR4 RAM which is clocked at 2133MHz.

When it comes to resolution, it is a true 4K graphics card. As the Nvidia claims 35 percent improvement and especially in 4K games, it actually provides that. When it comes to Steam VR performance test, the GTX 1080 Ti provides more than 45 percent improved performance than the predecessor and the best performance by any other graphics card in this segment. This is for sure would give a flawless performance in high graphics and high-performance games. Altogether, it is an excellent graphics card which doesn't have any competitor with its specs and performance, and it is worth for $699.
