NVIDIA have announced the 1080 Ti and it's a beast

By - | Views: 19,193
NVIDIA have let a few details out on the 1080 Ti and it sounds like an absolute power-house of a GPU.

It will have 3584 'NVIDIA CUDA cores' with 11GB of VRAM crammed in running at 11Gbps.

It will cost $699 and will be available world-wide from March 10th, but pre-orders will begin tomorrow. That's quite a high price, so it will only be for the most enthusiastic gamers to pick up.

Personally, I want more details on AMD Vega, as I will be most likely going with AMD for my next GPU.

See the full details on the NVIDIA blog. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Going AMD is the best to support the efforts made towards open source drivers, hopefully Vega will be competitive enough to get a good adoption

I've actually been wondering how well Vega will be supported on Linux. I've felt locked in to Nvidia ownership for way too long and the insane price hikes going into the 10x0 series made me really wish that AMD performed on Linux just as well. It will be a case of wait and see I guess

This will cost around €800 where I live, according to past experience. Man, that's a lot of money...

Indeed, if it would actually be $699, I'd have me one for my next build (unless Vega comes out on top before then). But I fear that the practical versions (higher clocks, better (and less noisy) coolers) will even exceed the €800 mark.

The price of this card is the price of my computer...Finally a console is cheaper to play games.

You have to compare apples to apples. A 1080Ti is not a requirement to play PC games at equivalent performance to a console. Once you put together a parts list to play at 30fps @ 1080i (most, if not all consoles current gen limits) the cost comes way down.

Should come in handy for future Feral ports! ;D

I really just want to enjoy playing some or the latest games on Linux above 60fps for once. I'm half tempted to go the nvidia route as it still has the performance lead. But I'm enthusiastic about the open source drivers for AMD, they make huge gains every year it seems. And there is no waiting for compatibility with the latest updates to xorg. It just works.

I think I need to look to the future though. Vulkan is almost mainstream and AMD hardware works really well on Vulkan. Also I can't afford £500+ just for a good GPU. I'm hoping Vega will be much more affordable.

I snagged a GTX 1080 FTW edition. Always want what we don't have haha. I knew going into it I wasn't going to splurge for the To.

Well, something to think on, is that if Vulkan does bring the performance improvements we all hope (and it looks like it will in most cases), upgrading might not be needed for some of us for even longer.

Like my 980ti right now, it can play any game I throw at it. When Vulkan becomes more common, it will probably allow me to continue using it for an additional year I reckon. So I might even be able to wait until Navi (the one after Vega).
