Reviews of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card are hitting the net today, and here's a snippet from Tech Power Up's review:

The GTX 1080 features more CUDA cores than its predecessor – 2560 vs. 2048. It features even more TMUs (160 vs. 128), and double the memory amount, at 8 GB. Memory technology sees a major update, with NVIDIA's adoption of the GDDR5X memory standard. The memory is clocked at a staggering 10 GHz effective, at which speed, the GPU has 320 GB/s of memory bandwidth over a 256-bit wide memory interface. Such bandwidths were earlier only possible with 384-bit or 512-bit GDDR5 memory interfaces. First-gen HBM being restricted to 4 GB, HBM2 not being readily available, and HBM-class stacked memory being more expensive to deploy (using on-chip silicon substrates); could have contributed to NVIDIA's decision to go with GDDR5X for the GeForce GTX 1080.

In this review, we're testing a GeForce GTX 1080 reference-design graphics card, which will be marketed as "Founders Edition," at $699. This will be the price we will use in our primary price/performance calculation, although we did add a $599 price/performance data-point just for reference.

the market hype is stronger than the 1080 v the 980 (reference cards) :)

I see the new cards are based on the Pascal architecture.

Some considerable time before 2017.

Well I never, somebody told me we wouldn't see it in the real world before next year.

Throw a jet engine on the back with a couple of boosters I bet it would launch to mars and self navigate

Looks like NVIDIA have confirmed the price of the Founders Edition GTX 1080 card in the UK - £619. Bit steep considering it's $699 in the US :eek:
