Ready to get your 4K or VR game on? If you're holding out for a new top-spec graphics card from Nvidia, the wait may finally be over. Almost a year and a half since the launch of Nvidia's GTX 9xx graphics card series, the company is now expected to announce the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti next week during the Nvidia GPU Technology Conference Keynote on April 4th.
The news comes as part of a chassis leak spotted by Videocardz, showing off the branded cooling shrouds (pictured above) and a shipping manifest seemingly confirming the card names. Initially, the GTX 1080 name was expected to be a placeholder to be dropped in favour of X80 and X80 Ti designations, but these images would now suggest otherwise. Alongside the GTX 1080 Ti, less powerful, more affordable GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 cards are also expected to debut.
The cards are expected to be a continuation of Nivida's Pascal technology, using 16nm chips. The GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 are expected to be based on GP104 architecture, while the 1080 Ti (and any eventual 1080 Titan mega card) will be GP100 cards, a first for the firm. With as much as 32GB of VRAM being rumoured, you could certainly run Crysis. We'll keep you posted. [Videocardz via MCV]
