''NVIDIA has a redesigned vapor chamber cooler that is being used on the GTX 1080 Ti and it cools better and allows the card to run cooler than the one designed for the GeForce GTX 1080. NVIDIA says that the doubled the cooling area on the vapor chamber GeForce GTX 1080 Ti If the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti were both running at 220W with their perspective coolers, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti would run 5C cooler and 2.5dB quieter thanks to the improvements.''
''There will be overclocked versions of the GeForce GTX 1080 8GB coming with 11 GBPS GDDR5X memory as well as a GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 video card with faster 9 GBPS GDDR5 memory coming soon.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition will launch first and then AIC cards will launch at a later date. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will be available from the AICs at the MSRP. The price and the availability will be…

NV really must have fear from vega..
1080TI even have 11ghz GDDR5x it will be faster than TITAXP(because faster boost)

Gotta love that FE pricing... Probably going to be $799 or more.

Geforce GTX 1080 Ti MSRP = $699

15-20% overclocking headroom out of the box

$700 = no buy. I'm not in for the endless price hikes. Also, its not faster than a TitanX. Its only faster out of the box due to stock clocks. No one is that blind. If they would have actually given us a full chip for $700, then I may have found it worth it. But a cut down of a cut down at $700? Yeah no thanks. Too bad though. Would have gone nice with my new AMD build.

You're mad about the $50 price hike over the 980 TI, but I'm actually pleased given the situation of there currently being absolutely ZERO competition and the near doubling of vram that happens to be 57% faster. That, with the price drop and aftermarket 1080's with faster 11ghz G5X, I'm actually shocked Nvidia threw this much of a bone to consumers.

No mention of FE vs msrp. 699 for both? Back to sanity?

CUDA core count is actually same as Titan X though. At same clocks performance will likely be almost identical. I highly doubt the memory bus and ROP differential will impact performance that much.

Any idea what version the DisplayPort and HDMI ports are?
Ryan Smith says on the front page article:
However the cooling system has seen a small but important overhaul: the DVI port is gone, opening up the card to be a full slot blower. In order to offer a DVI port along with a number of DisplayPorts/HDMI ports, NVIDIA has traditionally blocked part of the card’s second slot to house the DVI port. But with GTX 1080 Ti, that port is finally gone, and that gives the GTX 1080 Ti the interesting distinction being the first unobstructed high-end GeForce card since the GTX 580. The end result is that NVIDIA is promising a decent increase in cooling performance relative to the GTX 980 Ti and similar designs. We’ll have to see how NVIDIA has tuned the card to understand the full impact of this change, but this likely will further improve on NVIDIA’s already great acoustics.

Meanwhile the end result of removing the DVI port means that the GTX 1080 Ti’s display I/O has been pared down to just a mix of HDMI and DisplayPorts. Altogether we’re looking at 3x DisplayPort 1.4 ports and 1x HDMI 2.0 port. As a consolation to owners who may still be using DVI-based monitors, the company will be including a DisplayPort to DVI adapter with the card (presumably DP to SL-DVI and not DL-DVI), but it’s clear that DVI’s days are now numbered over at NVIDIA.

I think ill pass and keep my 980ti that has a traditional memory bus. Not a funky 352 bit bus. Forget that.

Hats off to NVIDIA for pulling the biggest con of the year: taking almost a year to get the similar relative perf./$ with the 1070/1080/1080Ti at 350$/500$/700$ when compared to the 970/980/980Ti.

Early adopters of the GTX 1080 who paid 700$, and those who are only now getting custom cards below 600$ must be so happy now.

Why would anyone care if the memory bus is 352 or 251 or 125 or whatever as long as it works? It is not like the bus would affect the GPU functionality in any way:rolleyes:

Nvidia used that odd number probably to lower cost to use 11GBps memory and achieve the 484GB bandwidth they need.

Not bad. Was expecting 3328 CCs, 10Ghz G5X and $799-849 price. $699 price and performance more or less on par with the TXP is a nice surprise. 1080 getting a price drop to $499 and getting free performance boost from 11Ghz G5X is a smart move by NV. NV just put Vega in no man's land. If Vega costs $599-649 and it's not as fast as the 1080Ti, almost no one will buy it. 11GB of memory vs. 8GB is a nice marketing win for 4K/5K gaming even if real world performance won't benefit the 11GB card. Consumers like seeing more VRAM in the high-end segments.

If Vega is barely 5-8% faster than 1080 and costs $499-549, 1080 will easily outsell it based on NV brand/loyalty and reputation. Both of these moves show NV isn't scared at all wrt to Vega. AMD had nothing amazing to show for Vega presentation other than HBCC boost in Sniper Elite 4 and Bethesda partnership. If AMD had something spectacular, they would have showed demos head-to-head against TXP or 1080; much like they positioned 6700K/7700K/6800K/6900K against Ryzen. I smell AMD's R&D and resources were stretched way too thin and the GPU division suffered for it.

On NV's last conference call, JHH stated that only roughly 25% of their entire customer base upgraded to Pascal in 2016; and that it takes 4 years on average before the GeForce install base migrates away from their older card(s) fully to the next generation. That means ~75% of NV users are potential customers for Pascal in 2017. Reducing the price of 1080 to $499 and releasing 1080Ti at $699 so far out from Vega means NV is poised to clawback even more market share and get guaranteed easy sales until prob. late May. The faster memory on 1060 may be enough to open up tangible albeit small a lead over 480. I would have liked better refreshes for 1060/1070/1080, perhaps 10-15% higher boost, 2048 CCs and G5X on the 1070 refresh, possibly 1060Ti.

Interesting how MSRP for the FE seems to be the same as AIB. I hope this is true as the FE premium was BS. I feel the FE card should never cost more than the AIB card.

The $699 1080Ti only shows how much of a rip-off 1080 was at $599/$699. I won't hide that I am usually very critical of the x80 cards. This 1080Ti is pretty tempting for me to just dump my 1070s and pay a bit out of pocket for a 1080Ti. No SLI issues for more or less the same price. Well played NV by getting a 2-3 months head start on Vega. Top notch execution as usual. If only modern PC gaming was more exciting....to utilize these new toys.

Looking forward to 2070/2080 Volta in 2018 for next gen DX12 tech though. Kinda bored with this entire generation of videocards. The cards keep getting faster but games aren't doing next gen leaps at the same pace, hence why NV is pushing 4K/5K advertising in their slides.

Overall, I am pretty happy with this card. $1200 TXP performance for $700 just 7 months later. Love the price/performance technology curve. AIB cooling may be able to take 1080Ti to 2.1Ghz+, which was a tall order for a stock TXP.

Note: OP lists TDP at 220W, and AnandTech editorial has it at 250W. Just noticed this minor discrepancy.
