NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is an NVIDIA GPU that was released in March 2017. This GPU is very good at gaming with a score of 62% in our PC benchmark.
The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has 11 GiB of GDDR5X memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 473 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 352 bits. If you plan on gaming at higher resolutions with higher quality textures, more memory is important. Without enough memory, performance will be degraded.
In terms of clock speed, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPU core runs at a frequency of 1480 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1582 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.
As for rendering API support, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.
Power and thermals for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 250 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
