The GeForce GTX 1080 is a quantum leap in performance. Faster than both the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and GeForce GTX TITAN X, the GeForce GTX 1080 is built with the very latest technology to deliver unprecedented performance and efficiency, giving gamers the horsepower to play the newest games with settings maxed out. Whether they’re on your monitor or in Virtual Reality.
These gains in performance and power efficiency are enabled by the marvels of the Pascal architecture. The first of these marvels is the introduction of cutting-edge 16nm FinFET chip construction. This new, smaller chip design uses fewer Watts of power and emits less heat, enabling us to crank up the core clock speed of the GPU, which is key for increasing a graphics card’s performance.
