AMD bored us to death last week not because of Ryzen, of course, but on the graphics side of things after the anticipated Radeon Vega reveal was a no-show, so we were happy to see Nvidia didn't do the same, jumped the gun, and unveiled the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
What made this a worthwhile event however is that the GTX 1080 Ti is looking more impressive than a simple performance bump, with a spec sheet that gets it much closer to the monstrous Titan XP.
Based on the same core as the Titan Pascal, the new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti gets a weird 11GB of video memory, matching the shader processors of the Titan, getting slightly less ROPs, but a boost in clock frequency. On paper it looks very promising. Nvidia expects cards to become available as soon as next week for $699.
As part of the announcement, the standard GeForce GTX 1080 is getting a price cut down to $499.
Watch out for our full review of the new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti soon.
