Nvidia announce enhanced GTX 1080 and GTX 1060 GPU variants

 
Nvidia has now announced enhanced GTX 1080 and GTX 1060 GPU variants, both of which come with impressive memory overclocks. 
 
Right now Nvidia has not announced the availability of these GPUs, or if they will be coming with a different brand name like the GTX 1080 Boost or GTX 1060 Ti, or if these GPUs will come with any further upgrades. Both CPUs come with memory that has a 1GBPS increase in memory speeds, giving the GTX 1080 a 10% boost in memory bandwidth and the GTX 1060 a 12.5% boost in memory bandwidth.
 
This change has been made by using faster memory chips on each GPU, with the GTX 1080 still using GDDR5X and the GTX 1060 still using 9GBPS memory.

Some suggest that the “enhanced GTX 1060” will be called the GTX 1060 Ti, with recent rumours suggesting that this GPU will also be upgraded to support SLI, which is a feature that is missing from Nvidia’s existing GTX 1060 models.
