Nvidia had a showstopper tonight at its Game Developers Conference presentation.

Tonight at its Game Developers Conference presentation, Nvidia debuted the GTX 1080TI, the next in its line of graphics cards. And it's coming sooner than you might think.

The new card was dubbed "the Ultimate GeForce." The presentation boasted that the it's 35% faster than the GTX 1080, and uses tiled caching. It can overclock to 2GHz, and even still, it runs cooler and quieter thanks to an increased cooling area. 

It will cost $699, and it's coming next week. Nvidia said the cards are already in full production, and Shacknews was on-hand to give them a try firsthand. Stick around for our impressions.

Earlier in the presentation, Nvidia had dropped the price of the standard GTX 1080, making it now $200 cheaper than the 1080TI.

      Like my 1080...but it's already insanely more than I need.

        My major need is VR. Can enable all of the super sampling.

        Cards like these are only interesting if you play in 4K or VR. Or some multi monitor setup.

          You say that like there isn't anything past 60fps.

          Damn. I'll have to wait for official benchmarks and NVIDIAs driver issues lately are pretty shit.

          $700 isn't above what I'm willing to spend, though.

            It's basically an overclocked Titan X card less 1GB of memory

          I would've bet money at $799, glad I didn't.

      That eVGA icx upgrade was $99. It ALSO reset the time table for the Step-Up program. I only did it on the gamble that the Tis would. It only be announced but actually be released within the window. Score!

      1080 Ti 35% faster than 1080?

      That's... significant.

        Seriously. I spent a large part of my christmas bonus on two 1080s back in mid-January (I do most of my gaming on the 4k TV in my living room) because I figured any Ti version would be like 10-15% faster at most, and now I'm seriously annoyed that I didn't wait.

      Is it true founders editions come out first?

      February 28, 2017 11:27 PM

      Yup yup yup. Now give me a version that been factory clocked to hell and back with a silent cooler and I'm going to be grinding teeth again to not go for it.

      I am definitely interested in this after upgrading to 1440p 165hz monitor but sadly it's been 2 weeks since i touched a game, i don't know what to play and don't see anything in the near future that might be worth upgrading for

      Hmm wonder how much I can sell my 1080 for.

      Until my 2405FPW gives up the ghost (damn you Dell, and your build quality), I can't imagine needing anything better than my current 1060.

      So glad I held out on a 1080 purchase!!! the jump from the 980 to the 1080ti is INSANE

      I know benchmarks arent out yet, but if they say its 35% faster than 1080. How much faster would it be than 980 SLI (non ti)?

        March 1, 2017 11:53 AM

        Not a ton. The best part of that upgrade would be you don't have to use SLI anymore.
