Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti Launched, the Company’s Fastest Graphics Card Yet
Highlights
  • The GeForce GTX 1080Ti will be available internationally from March 10
  • It will retail for $699 (around Rs. 46,700) in the US
  • The price in India is yet to be announced

After much rumour and speculation, Nvidia has finally announced the GeForce GTX 1080Ti video card at the Game Developers Conference 2017 (GDC 2017). It will retail for $699 (around Rs. 46,700) from March 10 worldwide. Keep in mind that the price for the GPU in India will be a lot higher than a direct dollar conversion due to taxes, customs, and other surcharges.

“It’s time for something new, something that’s 35 percent faster than a GTX 1080, something that’s faster than Titan X Let’s call it the ultimate GeForce,” said Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang during the 1080Ti’s unveiling at GDC.

The GeForce GTX 1080Ti has 12 billion transistors and 3584 CUDA cores and a massive of 11GB of GDDR5X video RAM running at 11Gbps.

With the GeForce GTX 1070 and 1080 previously headlining the company’s consumer-grade video cards and with competitor AMD yet to lift the lid on its much anticipated Vega line of GPUs, you’d think that Nvidia would simply rest on its laurels. This isn’t the case.

“Year after year after year video games are getting more and more beautiful, so we’re introducing the next-generation high-end so you’re ready to enjoy next-generation games,” Huang said. “Coming out of the box, the stock out of the box 1080 Ti is 35 percent faster than a 1080, faster than a Titan X.”

Nonetheless, we've reached out to Nvidia India for comment and will update this post if we hear from the company. Meanwhile, pre-orders for the GeForce GTX 1080Ti begin from March 2 at 8am PST (9:30pm IST) on Nvidia’s website.
