At NVIDIA’s CES announcement, GTX 1080 Ti had been dolorously missed after what looked like an anticlimactic reveal to the major countdown. The reason was simple for this as NVIDIA had originally planned to show the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti to the people but they decided to skip it since it did not seem like an AMD was going to show Vega afterall. The website Tech Buyer’s Guide is the source for todays news and their interview on the employee of an NVIDIA board partner. It is what appears to be a textbook case of game theory which is applied to the two chip manufacturers, the date of release was pushed back by NVIDIA to furnish it more on the GTX 1080 Ti as they are waiting for the AMD to make a move and enjoy more of the months of GTX 1080 on holding the performance crown uncontested.
With multiple AIB variants including GIGABYTE, MSI. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will be landing around PAX East
That said, origin of the rumors are saying that the company will be showing off the card around PAX East, which is lately to be held on March 10-12, 2017. Apparently the employees of NVIDIA AIB who was lately not named for various reasons. If it’s true then it may fi nicely with what we have been hearing throughout about the AMD. if it is planned to reveal Vega in June by AMD then it makes no sense for NVIDIA to reveal the 1080 Ti now and disrupt their sales of the Titan X pascal, preferably waiting and polish the Ti some more so it can retain NVIDIA’s performance crown once Vega hits the dethrones and shelves the GeForce GTX 1080. Another information that the employees gave up was the GTX 1080 Ti that will be available from all the vendors from the get Go.
What he is basically trying to say is that you will be able to buy AIB variants f the GTX 1080 Ti from day 1. Regrettably, the Ti which is being launched this late is because of the another concern. Does this mean that we will never get to see Volta generation this year?. The answer depends on AMD once again. It would appear that AMD has plans to succeed the Vega GPU soon. Nevertheless, they plans to intro the dual Vega GPU anytime in the second half of the year 2017. NVIDIA can counter this by either releasing a single card or releasing a dual GPU of their own which can later on offer comparable performance to the former. From the DOOM demo at CES 2017, the Vega GPU will also offer higher performance than the GTX 1080, which means that NVIDIA needs to respond with a consumer variant that offers higher or comparable performance before the fact or risk of losing market share. One thing is without a doubt however, Vega’s valuing will expand the acquiring force of the normal gamer.
On the off chance that Vega is estimated effectively, (and there is no motivation to expect it won’t be), then it will compel NVIDIA to cut valuing on the GTX 1080 and offer the GTX 1080 Ti for a premium, on the grounds that by the day’s end when the tidy settles on an evaluating war, the buyer wins. The account of the GP102 based center began around 4 months back and was affirmed by a spilled change log by the AIDA64 devs. NVIDIA has as of now discharged one variation of the center as the TITAN X for the ultra top of the line range however we have yet to see one in the standard “Ti” organize. Named the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, the illustrations card will bring the GP102 center into the standard with a sticker price under $1000. The delivery show’s INR esteem, which is essentially the protection estimation of the chip, is less expensive than the TITAN X’s.
While INR does not straightforwardly mean MSRP, we can securely gather that it will be less expensive than the TITAN X. The correct sort of GDDR (GDDR5 or 5X) is not specified. The manifest of shipping shows the memory at 10240 MB, which is solid 10 GB worth of vRAM. Memory bus shown is 384-bit part, inspite of, from the fact that this is a GP102 part, as we really don`t know anything solid. While the GTX 1080 has 2560 and Titan X has 3584 cores. The GP 102 part has configuration or have the same die as the Titan X. there is a slight possibility that NVIDIA decides to go ahead with the full fledged core
