[Review] Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080ti: Power, power and more power!
Nvidia’s fastest card ever
If you say to me five years ago that we will be getting a graphics card that is this powerful, I would have called you nuts, and walked away. Yet, we are here with the new NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080ti. This is the company’s latest card available to the consumer right now, and it is a beast. It is about 40% better than the last Ti card that graced our labs, the GTX 980ti.
Is this the Titan killer?
On paper, the GTX 1080ti is similar to the preciously launched Titan X gpu from NVIDIA – and the Titan series represents the best performance that one can buy. Sure it may has less ROPs and VRAM on board, but it has a faster core, can generate more processing power and it is at half the price. A killer combo yes?
Win every game you have
Run the 1080ti on your game machine, and you will be the king of the hill. That is what we saw in our own testing benchmarks. We routinely managed to get in the high 100s in just about every game that we got out hands on, and this includes DOOM, Rise of the Tomb Raider and even Overwatch. The games were running at a resolution of 2560 x 1440 at Ultra settings (when available) – not 4K, but more than enough to satisfy our gaming needs.
Quiet in operations
Surprisingly we did not encounter any high pitched noise when we ran the card at full load. The NVIDIA reference design means that the card will blow more air through the back of the CPU case, but it is as noisy as a third party cooling solution, making it a good card to own if you are looking for something not too noisy. Your room will get a bit warm though.
