Nvidia editors day event gallery featuring GTX1080

Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of Nvidia launched GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 today in Austin, Texas.

The venue, Emo’s club, was packed with Press, analysts and an army of Nvidia fanboys (and girls) who had won entry to the event. It was heaving.

GTX 1080 has 2560 CUDA cores and a base clock speed of 1607MHz that boosts to 1733MHz. We were shown a GTX 1080 running at 2114MHz so this must surely be Founder’s Day in action.

On air cooling the GTX 1080 was running at 67 degrees. The audience was told it had earlier run at 65 degrees so adding a few hundred people to the hall had a measurable effect.

Nvidia claims GTX 1080 beats dual GTX 980 in SLI or a single Titan X.
