Nvidia’s GTX 1080 graphics card boasts innovations aplenty
Nvidia's newly-announced GTX 1080 graphics card is the new fastest graphics card in the world, boasting a number of noteworthy innovations.
According to Nvidia, the GTX 1080 graphics card -- which is scheduled for availability on May 27 -- is nearly 35 percent faster in real-world use as compared to the now-redundant GTX 980 Ti and Titan X graphics card; and almost
62 percent faster than its predecessor, the GTX 980.
So far as the innovations introduced by Nvidia in the GTX 1080 graphics card are concerned, it is the first graphics card based on Nvidia's new Pascal architecture which underscores a notable advance by the company; chiefly due to the fact that it effectively combines higher clocks, increased core counts, and enhanced efficiency.
In addition, the GTX 1080 is also the first graphics card featuring GDDR5X memory from Micron. Moreover, it is also the first graphics card which has been manufactured on a smaller, more efficient TSMC 16nm FinFET manufacturing process.
Overall, in comparison to the earlier-generation graphics cards, the GTX 1080 requires much less power and cooling, thanks largely to the improvements to the Pascal architecture as well as the more efficient manufacturing process.
