“With great power comes great responsibility” Uncle Ben- Spider man
Nvidia revealed its newest entry in the GPU market, the long awaited GTX 1080 and the 1070.=
The GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 are the first consumer friendly PC graphics card developed using the Pascal technologies. With Nvidia claims the 1080 to be the “most advanced gaming graphics card ever created”, there are a lot to be cautiously excited about.
The cards were revealed at the Austin Texas last week at a consumer convention. It had been long speculated that Nvidia will develop a graphics card compatible with their Pascal technology after Pascal’s initial debut at the Nvidia press conference in March 2014. A mere two years after the announcement, these children from labor and love is born. The GTX 1080 will debut at 599 USD, a 50 dollar increases from its predecessor the GTX 980, and the GtX 1070 at 379 USD, also a 50 dollars increase from the 970. Despite these prices, Nvidia claims that both the 1080 and the 1070 will be more powerful than the Titan X, Nvidia’s flagship card.It is unusual to see Nvidia rise up their price tags of their flagship titles, however this might be because previously this year Nvidia’s largest competitor AMD has announced its development on their new graphics card utilizing the Polaris technology.
