Preemption is still needed for certain tasks, however, like changing from one application workload to another. Good case, and good case fans. Pre-built system may require less power depending on system configuration. Be sure to visit for all the latest comprehensive hands-on reviews and best-of roundups. Mine runs in the 1800s base clock while hovering around 68-70C. I saw performance degradation start at lower temps on paper than I normally do with 1080's, while the voltages stayed flat. Pros: This thing can handle anything I can throw at it.

But this card is running smooth and cool! We'll have to see how this plays out in developer use, but the potential is here. It allows much of the geometry setup work to be done a single time, but with multiple viewports projections all done in a single pass. If you add better cooling, it should pick up on that as well. Easy to set up and works flawlessly. Another set of technologies improve the browsing experience and personalize it.

Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 Ti Founder's Edition Review

We're not going to go into all the details right now, but here's the short rundown of changes. Let's take a look at the card, the specs, then dive in, shall we? This is all technology previously available with Maxwell. However, it makes up for the difference by using faster memory and higher clock speeds. Nvidia has left plenty of room for tweaking, and in fact they've opened up the full range of voltage controls to overclocking utilities. It looks good on paper after having tested it for a couple days.

Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated. However, I can run any of those on one of my 980 Ti's, too, but this is a really good buy for performance. We'll likely see factory overclocked cards with aftermarket coolers at some point, and some of those will almost certainly exceed what we're able to achieve with the Founders Edition. It looks nice, but it's all show. And then we waited a few days for Nvidia to ship us drivers, benchmarked a bunch of games, and prepared for today, the day where we can officially talk performance, architecture, and some other new features.

Also, where is my game that I was promised? The card is engineered for maximum cool, and maximum cooling. Even better, many of the factory overclocked cards will likely cost less than the Founders Edition. Pedal to the metal And then there's overclocking. Again, I'll keep and water cool this one. Full test bench details are located below. I've done it with thicker blades than these myself.

. But if the 30 percent jump in performance over Titan X wasn't enough to get you excited, perhaps tacking on another 15 percent with overclocking will do the trick. Cons: pricing Other Thoughts: I bought the red and black video card, not the one pictured in the review. It delivers everything Nvidia promised, and there's likely room for further improvements via driver updates—this is version 1. This process transition is both massive and unprecedented, and will afford a huge boost in performance and efficiency as the use of smaller transistors allows more to be packed into the same size space. Enjoy extra ounce of performance right out of box. The video card delivers consistent performance even at high loads.

There is no backplate of any kind, even for decoration. If I'd known that up front, I would have figured that into the extra overall cost for a backplate and never would have bought this. We've spent a lot of time collecting performance results, using an extensive test suite of games, including some recent releases along with some oldies but goodies. The problem is, we're currently ten days before the official retail launch—the is everywhere, it seems—which means we have no clear view on actual availability and pricing. Or at least, that's how it could have gone down. I'll write a follow up after I've done that, probably within the next few days if this is close to the Founders Edition footprint.

Pros: It has solid 1080 performance. Watchdogs 2 I entered the code. In theory, that means potentially three times as many transistors in the same area…or slightly more transistors in a much smaller area. The Founders Edition cards are built with premium materials and components and feature a die cast aluminum body. And now the product picture has been changed for the two fan configuration. If you're wondering about these differences, the main goal appears to be reducing cost and improving efficiency.
