Nvidia is known for some seriously heavy duty GPUs, and 2016 has seen them launch some awesome cards, including the GTX 1060, GTX 1070 and GTX 1080. However, it seems Nvidia has already started planning for 2017, with an expected launch of the GTX 1080 Ti by 2017. According to some experts, GTX 1080 Ti might provide better performance than Titan X at a much lower price.
Nvidia’s upcoming GTX 1080 Ti might launch at CES 2017 that is scheduled in January 2017 according to reports. A user named Excalibur50 has revealed the specifications of GTX 1080 in an Overclocking forum. Here are the leaked specs of GTX 1080 Ti:
The GTX 1080 Ti specification leaks point towards 12GB GDDR5X 10Gbps memory running across a 384bit memory interface that is able to get you a memory bandwidth of 480GB/s. The 1080 Ti has a thermal design power of 250 watts.
