Nvidia’s GTX 1080Ti In Production, Rumored To Launch on 20-23 March, Claims Taiwanese Manufacturers
After months of wait and rumors, finally we get something solid on the release of Nvidia’s GTX 1080Ti. A recent released report claims that Taiwanese manufacturers have begun the production line of GTX 1080Ti. The graphics card is based on Nvidia’s GP102 Silicon. Nvidia will host its own show at GDC 2017 and we look forward to see and know more on GeForce GTX 1080Ti.
The graphics card is expected to launch from March 20th to 23rd. The custom designed AIB versions of Nvidia’s GTX 1080Ti are expected to come out in market sometime after the launch. Since the Geforce GTX 1080Ti will be slightly less in power than TITAN X, its price tag is expected to fall in range of $750 to $900 at launch.
According to the report, its claims that at the heart of GTX 1080Ti, lays GP102 silicon, that means the performance of GTX 1080Ti will reach with TITAN X. Since there is no confirmed specification released by Nvidia on GTX 1080Ti, here is a compilation of the rumored specification that will be in GTX 1080Ti:
NVIDIA’s GTX 1080Ti Rumored Specs
- GPU : GP102
- Process : TSMC 16FF
- Die size : 471mm²
- Transistors : 12 Billion
- SMs : 52
- CUDA Cores : 3328
- Core clock : ~1.5Ghz
- Boost clock : ~1.6Ghz
- Peak FP32 compute : 10.8 TFLOPs
- Memory interface : 384-bit
- Memory : 12GB GDDR5X
- Bandwidth : 480GB/s
- TDP – 250W
Titan X has 60 SMs, while we expect to see at least 52 SMs in 1080Ti. Titan X packs 11 teraflops, while the rumored specs of Nvidia’s GTX 1080Ti say it will have 10.8 teraflops. Overall, the specs of 1080ti are slightly lowered than Titan X, however, with Nvidia allowing its AIB partners to come up with their own versions of GTX 1080Ti, we will see overclocking variants that may outperform the Titan X.
We look forward to GDC 2017 to know more on GeForce GTX 1080Ti, dated 27th February to 3rd march. Don’t miss out the event!
