MojoKid writes: A couple of weeks ago, NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun-Huang unveiled the company's new high-end graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070. Huang claimed the cards represented a true generational leap in performance and efficiency, thanks to NVIDIA's new Pascal GPU architecture. Yesterday, the official launch of the GeForce GTX1080 took place, with full specs revealed and the benchmarks results are in. The GPU at the heart of the GeForce GTX 1080 Founder's Edition has a base clock of 1607MHz and a boost clock of 1733MHz, though boost clocks actually shot a little higher right out of the box in some game tests (one test card went up to 1823MHz occasionally, without overclocking). The GDDR5X memory on the card is clocked at 5GHz for an effective data rate of 10Gbps. At its reference clocks, the GTX 1080 offers up to 320GB/s of memory bandwidth and a peak texture fillrate of 257.1 GigaTexels/s, all within a 180 watt power envelope and the card only needs a single, 8-pin power feed. In the benchmarks GeForce GTX 1080 is roughly 20 -25 percent faster than a Titan X and 10 – 15 percent faster than a factory overclocked GeForce GTX 980 Ti. It was also significantly faster than AMD's Radeon R9 Fury X, in both DirectX 11 and Direct X 12 game titles.
