NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 with full GP104 GPU and 8 GB Memory

Nvidia is all set to launch the next generation GPUs, the pascal architecture build with 16nm FinFET process will Nvdias highest performance and power efficiency GPU till date. NVIDIA will show their Pascal GPUs at GTC 2016.

The new generation of NVIDIA GPU codenamed Pascal degree will be centre stage in the first half of 2016, which GP104, which is GeForce GTX 1080 will be determined debut in May.

Not too surprisingly, then, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang will be April GTC event, announced Pascal products.

Although the news has been mentioned, Pascal will import HBM2 memory, but the latest data show, GP104 is the GeForce GTX 1080 This card will remain GDDR5, or a faster GDDR5X memory, and memory capacity is 8GB in size. Of course, we can expect higher order GP100 appear, and this is expected to bring HBM2 GPU memory.

New GDDR5X in memory prefetch part from 8n raised to 16n, while the voltage component also lowered 1.35v (with DDR3L same), the memory bandwidth is also increased to 10 to 14Gb / s, but Micron earlier statistics show that, GDDR5X can reach 16Gb / s, will be the current 2x GDDR5.

In terms of capacity, GDDR5X can provide capacity of 4Gb, 6Gb, 12Gb and maximum 16Gb.

According to the source, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 will feature one PCIe 8 PIN, DisplayPort x 2, HDMI x 1, and DVI x 1 output. The shipping will be start May 27, which is the same time of the Computex 2016.
