Leaked Specs Appear for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

Back when NVIDIA unleashed the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070, there were some wondering if a GTX 1080 Ti would be on the horizon eventually. We've had it with both Kepler and Maxwell, so Pascal should follow suit, right? Well, we got word on the GTX 1060 (plus the reduced core version) and the new TITAN X running on Pascal, but a 1080 Ti was still missing. However, there might be some news on it soon, as some leaks indicate the card is real and is potentially coming soon. The specifications for the 1080 Ti have appeared, and boy is it impressive. It apparently has 52 SMUs on its Pascal core, which is just four fewer than the new TITAN X. The CUDA core count comes in at 3328, fewer than the 3584 on the TITAN X, but much more than the 2560 on the 1080.

It has 12GB of memory on a 384-bit bus, however the leaks put the memory as GDDR5 instead of GDDR5X on the TITAN X and 1080. Why the drop down, I don't rightly know, but the memory bandwidth comes in at 384GB/s. It's less than the 480GB/s on the TITAN X, which could be why it has GDDR5 instead of GDDR5X, so that people still have a reason to get that new monster. Considering the 1080 has only 320GB/s of memory bandwidth, the 1080 Ti is still far and above it. Single-point performance comes in at 10.8 Tflops instead of 11 Tflops on the TITAN X, so just a bit of a reduction there, and is again above the 9 Tflops on the 1080. Base clock speed comes in at 1503MHz, with a boost clock of 1623MHz, so it's faster than the TITAN X, but not as fast as the 1080. The TDP is 250W, with power supplied by 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe connectors, just like the TITAN X.

The card sounds impressive, although I still think if it goes with GDDR5 over GDDR5X it isn't the best idea. It is a leak, and until we get confirmation one way or another from NVIDIA, take everything here with a dose of salt. We might hear something on the 1080 Ti soon, maybe once AMD shows off its high-end flagship, and could see the 1080 Ti on shelves later this year or early next. Really, we don't know when the 1080 Ti is going to hit, just like we don't really know if all these leaked specifications are true or not. Once we hear something definitive, you can be sure to find it here.
