NVIDIA’s press conference ahead of the Game Developers Conference (GDC), San Francisco, today has already heralded some interesting news for virtual reality (VR) aficionados. Beginning with the price drop of the hugely popular GeForce GTX 1080, NVIDIA soon went on to confirm a new 2017 model, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
According to the company, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti offers a 35% speed increase over the GeForce GTX 1080. This is thanks to the 3584 cores, 11GB of VRAM and 11Gbps frame buffer mounted on the graphics card. That frame buffer is in fact nearly double the size of that which is present on the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and is designed specifically for VR and 4K gaming.
The previous high-end range of cards from NVIDIA included the TITAN X, of which the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti apparently excels.
The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will launch next week, priced at $699 USD. VRFocus will of course keep you updated with all the latest details on this new addition to NVIDIA’s range of graphics processing units (GPU).
