NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition Features:

  • Cutting-Edge Pascal Architecture: The GeForce GTX 1080’s Pascal architecture is the most efficient GPU design ever built. Comprised of 7.2 billion transistors and including 2560 single-precision CUDA Cores, the GeForce GTX 1080 is the world’s fastest GPU. With an intense focus on craftsmanship in chip and board design, NVIDIA’s engineering team achieved unprecedented results in frequency of operation and energy efficiency.
  •  16 nm FinFET: The GeForce GTX 1080’s GP104 GPU is fabricated using a new 16 nm FinFET manufacturing process that allows the chip to be built with more transistors, ultimately enabling new GPU features, higher performance, and improved power efficiency.
  • GDDR5X Memory: GDDR5X provides a significant memory bandwidth improvement over the GDDR5 memory that was used previously in NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce GTX GPUs. Running at a data rate of 10 Gbps, the GeForce GTX 1080’s 256-bit memory interface provides 43% more memory bandwidth than NVIDIA’s prior GeForce GTX 980 GPU. Combined with architectural improvements in memory compression, the total effective memory bandwidth increase compared to GTX 980 is 1.7x.
  • Simultaneous Multi-Projection (SMP): The field of display technology is undergoing significant changes from the days of a single, flat display monitor. Recognizing this trend, NVIDIA engineers developed a new Simultaneous Multi-Projection technology that for the first time enables the GPU to simultaneously map a single primitive onto up to sixteen different projections from the same viewpoint. Each projection can be either mono or stereo. This capability enables GeForce GTX 1080 to accurately match the curved projection required for VR displays, the multiple projection angles required for surround display setups, and other emerging display use cases. 
  • Perspective Sound
  • VRWorks
