Last year we called NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1080 “the upgrade you’ve been waiting for,” and now PC gamers have another high-end graphics card to drool over. Now, at GDC 2017 CEO Jen-Hsun Huang presented its successor, the GTX 1080 Ti, which promises “35 percent more performance,” packs 11GB of GDDR5X memory and will go on sale March 10th for $700. In fact, NVIDIA even claims this new card is faster than its $1,200 Titan X that launched late last year. At the same time, the company announced the 1080 is getting a price cut and will now start at $500.
Preorders will open on March 2nd, at 11AM ET.
The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti – faster than TITAN X – will be $699 and available next week. #UltimateGeForce http://pic.twitter.com/aW6XIv0Cyv
