The guys over at Videocardz spotted a shipping manifest at Zauba which talks about the much anticipated GTX 1080 Ti in all its glory. The manifest follows the same format which other graphics cards manifests follow. One of the most interesting things about the new card is that it packs 10 GB’s of VRAM.
The GP 102 10 GB Behemoth!
A GP102 based core rumor started about 5 months ago. Nvidia has released one variant of the core in the form of the TITAN-X for the elite class gamers who wish to have the best gaming experience possible. However, we are yet to see this architecture being implemented in the mainstream “Ti” format. The Geforce GTX 1080 Ti will seem to change this as it will bring the GP 102 core into the mainstream as it will have a price tag under $1000. This means that it will be much cheaper than the TITAN X. As of yet, we are not sure whether it will have GDDR5 or GDDR5X memory.
The manifest details that the card will have 10240 MB’s of memory while the memory BUS is shown to be a 384 bit part. Talking about the core count, the shipping manifest doesn’t talk about it. However, it is said that it will be between the GTX 1080 and Titan X. So, we can expect anything higher than 2560 cores and lower than 3584 cores.
According to rough estimates, considering the expected core counts, you should be looking at a power consumption of about 250-270W. Talking about the CUDA Cores we are looking at anywhere between 3072 to 3584 CUDA cores.
Real Time Performance
All in all, the card seems to be an excellent 4K card capable of running most of them with ease at 60 FPS. The card will easily squash 1440p and 1080p tests as it is simply not made for such a low resolution. The card aims for those who wish to have a buttery smooth 4K gaming experience without sacrificing game quality as it packs 10 GB’s of VRAM.
