Inno3D announce their GTX 1080 - With free copies of 3DMARK and VRMARK

 

Inno3D have just announced their GTX 1080 GPU, which will come with free copies of Futuremark's 3DMARK and VRMARK benchmarking tools. 

This GPU will use Nvidia's reference design GPU cooler and PCB and will not come with a factory overclock, differentiating itself from its peers by providing benchmarking tools from Futuremark, one of the world's most respected providers of gaming and productivity benchmarking tools.

Nvidia's GTX 1080 will become available for purchase on May 27th and below you can see the specifications of this new GPU listed beside the GTX 980Ti and GTX 980.

Pascal is designed to offer much greater levels of performance per watt consumed when compared to Nvidia's already efficient Maxwell counterparts while also running at increased clock speeds and using faster GDDR5X memory. 

The GTX 1080 will consumer 15w more power than the GTX 980, but have 512 extra CUDA cores and will use Nvidia's new Pascal architecture and TSMC's new 16nm manufacturing process. In terms of single precision compute performance the GTX 1080 offers around the same performance as GTX 980 SLI, making Pascal a significant performance leap over its predecessors.

The GTX 1080 uses a rather small 256-bit memory bus, which even with GDDR5X prevents this GPU from achieving the game memory bandwidth as the older and considerably more power hungry GTX 980Ti.

In terms of single precision compute performance the GTX 1080 is a beast of a GPU, but the question is whether or not this extra performance will result in the performance increase in games that we have been crying out for. Will the GTX 1080's lower memory bandwidth harm its performance at higher resolutions?

I'd much rather a game than benching tools as there's so many free one aroundQuote

If that's the case perfect as my budget is £600 for a new GPU and water block hopefully EK will release a full cover block quicklyQuote
