Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti review

Popular Posts

Nvidia GeForce GTX1080 Ti was one the most anticipated graphics card when it first came out in 2017. Nvidia’s most powerful GPU for gamers was the 1080 series. This newer version has many advantages over the Titan X.

Nvidia expands GTX 16 Series with new mobile graphics, desktop GTX 1650 (opens new tab).

Nvidia GeForce GTX1080 Ti costs $699 (about AU$930), which is the same price as the pre-discount GTX1080. The Nvidia GeForce GTX1080 Ti delivers performance comparable to the TitanXp for most of the time. The GTX 1080 Ti, in addition to being the most powerful consumer graphics card ever made, is a great example of Nvidia’s Pascal architecture. The GTX 1080Ti has stood the test of time, even in the face Nvidia Turing card like the RTX 2080 or 2080Ti.

We’ve seen a variety of manufacturers create their own GPU spins since the GTX 1080T was released. Check out our top Nvidia GTX 1080T graphics cards.

Specifications

 

Nvidia GeForce 1080 Ti packs 3584 CUDA cores and 224 texture units. It also has 88 ROPS. The 1080 Ti has just a notch more video RAM than Titan X. However, the 11GB of GDDR5X VRAM in the 1080 Ti is tuned to a faster 11Gbps – clearly Nvidia loves Spinal Tap – making it Nvidia’s fastest Pascal card.

The Nvidia GTX1080 Ti is an incredible performance machine, running at a base frequency of 1480MHz and a boosted frequency of 1582MHz.

The GTX 1080 increases to a faster 1,733MHz, but the Ti model has more cores, VRAM, and is therefore capable of delivering better performance in benchmarks and real-world games.

Design and cooling

You’ve probably seen all of Nvidias Pascal graphics cards. Externally, the GeForce GTX 1080 original and Nvidia’s latest Ti (or Tai as the company calls it) cards are almost indistinguishable.

We’re not complaining. The Founders Edition card design by Nvidia was a huge success when it was first introduced. Its modern, angular appearance still appeals to many. The GTX 1080 Ti does not have a DVI port. However, this is not a problem as there is an adapter that can be plugged into a DisplayPort.

The DVI port was removed, allowing for more space for a better cooling solution. Nvidia claims that its high-airflow thermal solution has twice the airflow area as the GeForce GTX1080’s cooling system.

These claims were confirmed by our testing. The GTX 1080 Ti was cooler at 75 degrees Celsius, while the GTX 1080 reached 82 degrees Celsius at full load. You can adjust the power limiter or overclock the GPUs to push both cards to 91 degrees Celsius.

Specifications for the test system

CPU: 3.0Ghz Intel Core i7-6950X Broadwell E (deca-core and 25MB cache up to 4.0GHz).

RAM: 32GB VengeanceLED DDR4 (3.200MHz).

Motherboard:Asus ROG StrixX99 Gaming

Power Supply: Corsair RM850x

Storage: 400GB U.2 SSD Intel 750 Series (NVMePCI 3.0×4)

Cooling: Corsair Hydro Series H115i extreme liquid cooler

Operating System: Windows 10

Performance

4K gaming at 60 frames per second has been a long-held goal of PC gaming. The Nvidia GeForce GTX1080 Ti was the closest thing we had to it until Nvidia Turing came along a few years later. The games you play will determine how smooth Ultra HD gaming is.

With games such as Battlefield 1 or Doom, we were able achieve frame rates in between 50-60 range. This is not an easy feat, but Doom and Battlefield 1 are two of the best games available.

Nvidia then released a DirectX 12 optimized Game Ready Driver, which allowed us to run Rise of the Tomb Raider at a solid forty frames per second. This is not as fast as the Titan X’s 57 frames per second, but it was double the 20 fps that we got with the Nvidia GeForce GTX1080.

These are the best-case scenarios. You shouldn’t assume that the Nvidia GTX1080 Ti can be used for 4K gaming. Total War: Attila, for one, brought down the Titanium-power GPU as it struggled with rendering the game at a barely-playable 26fps.

The GTX 1080 Ti smashed its predecessors in pure performance testing 3DMark FireStrike Ultra by scoring a staggering 2,000-4,000 points more than theirs. This GeForce is also faster than the Titan X.

Most remarkable is the fact that the Nvidia GTX1080 Ti does all this without overclocking. Nvidia claims that the card can go as high as 2GHz. We have not yet been able achieve stable running systems at 1.7-1.8GHz.
