Nvidia announced the new GTX 1080 Ti and the company also announced price cuts and new specs for the previous GPUs including the Nvidia GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060. If you were wondering about what you missed out on then don’t worry, we are going to talk about these new specifications here.
Nvidia GTX 1080, $499 US With 11 GB/s G5X Memory
The Nvidia GTX 1080 was originally launched a year ago and it was the flagship 10 series GPU back then but now we have the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti that will be taking its place at the very top. The older version is still decent and there is a newer version coming out that will cost $499 and will feature 11 GB/s GDDR5X memory.
The Nvidia GTX 1080 originally came out a year ago and back then it went for $699 US for the Founders Edition version and $599 US for the standard version. The specs of the improved Nvidia GTX 1080 is are as follows:
- 1607 MHz base clock
- 1733 MHz boost clock
- 8 GB of GDDR5X memory
- 11 GB/s
- bandwidth of 352 GB/s
- Extreme overclocking potential
Nvidia GTX 1070, $349 US For Competitive 1440p Gaming
We have all come to love the GTX 1070 for the great value that it has to offer especially if you want to run games at 1440p. The GPU originally came out costing $379 US with a $449 US Founders Edition model but now the GPU will cost $349.
Nvidia GTX 1060 Now Features Faster 9 GB/s Memory
The updated GTX 1060 will now come with 9 GB/s memory as compared to the 8 GB/s we saw previously on older models. It will also feature 216 GB/s bandwidth as compared to 192.2 GB/s what previous GTX 1060 owners have.
Seeing how I own the older GTX 1060 is a bummer but Nvidia has put a lot of money and resources into developing Pascal and the company wants to make the most out of the investment.
It is logical but this means that we will be seeing price cuts for the older versions that are already out there in the market.
Let us know what you think about the updated Nvidia GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060!
