As we reported earlier NVIDIA has recently released GTX 1080 Ti which is the most powerful graphic card til today. The Add-in-Board partners were underestimating again since all GPUs are sold out. The 1080 Ti is NVIDIA’s flagship graphic card and it is aimed dead center at high-end graphics at $699. Only a few of the Founder’s Edition cards are out yet and they are not sold out because of their premium prices.
The GTX 1080 Ti being sold out once again indicates that demand has exceeded NVIDIA’s expectation for the product (which is always good). Unfortunately for a potential buyer, there is no way to buy the graphic card now.
According to WCCFTech the next supply for GTX 1080 Ti Founder Edition is expected on 25th of March.
Many enthusiasts will be waiting for custom variants to arrive and it is expected to happen in 4 to 6 weeks from now. This will include Cards with beefed up power supplies and coolers which are always attractive for enthusiasts since they raise the potential of overclocking and 1080 Ti is quite good at it and the user will be able to get benefits of overclocking.
Willing to pay the premium? The GTX 1080 Ti is available (in a limited quantity) on Amazon for over $850
Yes it is true, if you are willing to pay premium for getting 1080 Ti you can headover to Amazon where these cards (Founder Edition of 1080 Ti) are still available in limited quantity. You can grab one by paying extra $150 over the MSPR.
For the rest of us mere mortals you can continue monitoring the above link for updated prices.
The GTX 1080 Ti is based on the GP102-350-A1 die which has the same number of 3584 CUDA Cores as the GP102-400-A1 die the Titan XP rocks. The major difference between the two is 1) the GTX 1080 Ti has a slightly smaller bus width at 352 bits (a very odd number) but a much faster memory speed to compensate for it. It also has 11GB worth of VRAM (which either caused the odd bus width or is because of the same) which is 1GB less than the Titan XP. With that out of the way and without any further ado, here are the benchmarks:
- The NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 Ti (OC) scores 10825 points in TimeSpy, which is ~39% faster than the 1080 (OC)
- The NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 Ti (OC) scores 7362 points in FireStrike Ultra which is ~28% faster than the 1080 (OC)
- The NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 Ti (OC) scores 15093 points in FireStrike Extreme which is ~31% faster than the 1080 (OC)
- The NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 Ti (OC) scores 31135 points in FireStrike Ultra which is ~29% faster than the 1080 (OC)
The Ti is clocked slightly higher than the XP and of course the biggest difference is that the Ti will retail for roughly half the price at an MSRP of $699.
