It has been suggested NVIDIA will present the GeForce GTX Ti 1080 graphics card on 28 February at the GeForce GTX Gaming Celebration event in San Francisco. GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will be available based on the same Pascal architecture GP102-graphics chipset, the Titan X and likely GDDR5X 12 GB of video memory.
The detailed technical specifications retail date have yet to be confirmed, however, according to rumours, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti-GP102 graphics chip could possibly use 3328 CUDA cores, making it a little less sophisticated than the Titan X graphics chipset. However, to compensate for the performance manufacturers would need to use more robust cooling solutions and a higher GPU clock speed.
Currently, the GeForce GTX 1080 the retails for around £500 – £600. The Ti variant is expected to retail for at least £100 more as this was the difference between the 980 and 980 Ti. GeForce GTX 1080 Ti’s release is long overdue, and there is pressure from the current competitive situation with AMD. However, AMD has announced the release of a new architecture based on Vega-GPU and 28th of February is also the date details will be spilt on AMD’s Ryzen project.
