NVIDIA PowerPacked GeForce GTX 1080-Specs & Pricing Details Revealed

Sharing is Awesome!

As the launch date creeping closer and closer more details
about NVIDIA’s latest flagship, the Pascal-based GTX 1080 have been released. Now
more information has emerged about the upcoming flagships from NVIDIA’s
stables. Here’s what the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 has for you.
Nvidia’s Pascal-powered GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card
provides a significant bump in graphics power compared to the 980, 980 Ti and
Titan X cards, according to Polygon tests and data provided by the card maker.
For instance, the GTX 1080 running The Witcher 3 at maximum
settings with HairWorks on showed about a 28 percent increase over the Titan X
and 55 percent increase over the 980 while running at 2560×1440 resolution. The
card delivers a 33 percent increase over the 980 Ti while running at 1920×1080
resolution.
NVIDIA aims to achieve a higher level of immersion by
incorporating the system into their ecosystem. By basically tying everything
together without the need for extra layers of code, NVIDIA VRWORKS AUDIO should
achieve a higher level of synchronicity. NVIDIA VRWORKS AUDIO will involves
interfacing with VRWORKS GRAPHICS and SIMULTANEOUS MULTI-PROJECTION for the
visual elements. OPTIX for the audio elements and Physx for interactive
elements within the game.

One of the more interesting new developments coming with the arrival of
the 1080 is Ansel, Nvidia’s reworked method for capturing in-game
images. Ansel is designed to be your SLR camera inside the games you
play. The software suite will allow you to pause a game, detach the camera to
move it around, add filters and capture EXR, super high-resolution or
even 360-degree images which can then be viewed in VR

And now for the much talked about Founder’s Edition cards.
These are nothing but the reference cards that NVIDIA used to send out to their
board partners. So they incorporate the GPU in its most nascent form. But
nascent doesn’t mean featureless. The reference card have had excellent build
quality till now.
The body is usually machined from a magnesium based alloy
and the cooling fan is pretty sturdy. We’re assuming it’s BLDC. The heatsink
for the GTX 1080 will feature a vapour chamber which is something we’ve only
seen with premium cards so far.

The GTX 1080 Founders Edition will be priced at $699 which
is $100 more than the MSRP that partners are bound to price their cards around.
So you’re paying more for higher build quality and good overclocking capability
