In May 2016, the “green corporation” presents the world with its new brainchild – GeForce series video cards based on the Pascal architecture, manufactured on the long-awaited 16-nm process. The new microarchitecture, according to NVIDIA’s statement, is revolutionary in every sense.
The new process technology brought the possibility of a significant increase in the clock speeds of the GPU. In GPU Boost mode, the GPU can reach a frequency of 1.8 GHz. Together with the new type of video memory GDDR5X, an improved algorithm for compressing textures, this allows you to get the GeForce 10 series graphics cards to a whole new level of performance. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 model not only surpasses its predecessor GeForce GTX 980 (almost 70%), but also the recent flagship GeForce GTX TITAN X.
Comparison with the previous flagship series
So, with all certainty, we can say that with the release of the new graphics architecture Pascal and the 10 series GeForce based on it, NVIDIA will be even stronger in the title of leader in the production of video games. Model GeForce GTX 1080 without exaggeration can be called a new “game monster 2016.” Significantly increased performance, excellent overclocking potential, and relatively low power consumption make this video card desirable for every gamer.
