The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, the new top consumer graphics card from Nvidia, will go on sale March 10 starting at $699, the company announced last night during a press event.
Nvidia says the new card is 35 percent faster than the GTX 1080, and even faster than the company’s $1,200 Titan X.
The card features 3,584 CUDA cores and 11 GB of GDDR5X video memory running at 11 Gbps. The card also reworks the already efficient cooling system found in previous GTX cards using a new high-airflow thermal solution. Nvidia says that the card also has a new seven-phase power design with 14 high-efficiency dualFETs that deliver better power efficiency at the highest usage and power levels.
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards, including the Nvidia Founders Edition, will be available worldwide — across 238 countries and territories — from Nvidia partners including Asus EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, iGame, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac, starting March 10. Prices, including those for the Nvidia Founders Edition, start at $699. Pre-orders on the Nvidia store begin March 2 at 8 a.m. PT.
Nvidia also announced that it will be giving away 108 of its Ti cards to GeForce Experience users. To be eligible, you just need to download GeForce Experience 3.0 and opt in “to receive the latest rewards, news and more from GeForce and Nvidia.” Winners will be emailed on March 7.
