    Videocardz says that they have discovered Nvidia GTX 1080ti benchmarks from the Chinese forums over at Chiphell. Now these cards supposedly fell off the back of an apple cart on the way to the monastery, so take them with a grain of salt as usual. 35% performance boost isn't bad if true. And they have more hardware spy pictures over there so go check them out!

    According to screenshots, the GTX 1080 Ti was running at 2062 MHz with memory at 5702 MHz. It’s hard to say what is the actual boost clock of GTX 1080 Ti right now, but I saw samples running at 1860-ish MHz, so that would roughly be a 200 MHz overclock. 3DMark is rather a short benchmark, but the card did not exceed 63C under load. Judging from the screenshot, power limit is set to around 122%.

    Of course, take this comparison with a pinch of salt, we are comparing different platforms and leaked benchmarks which do not necessarily have to be true, but they look legit to me.

    35%? Conforms pretty well with nVidia's slide comparing 1080 and 1080ti.

    I was going by that slide also. ;) Glancing at a couple of the benchmarks it looked like 1/3 more power. ;)

    Fucking paper launch/announcements again, thought this thing was out. Though I don't get the hype, it's practically just a disabled OC'd titan for less....

    WTF are you even talking about? From day one they said it would launch on the 10th.

    From announcement to a short less than 10 days launch is not a paper launch. Day one the said availability is on the 10th world wide. That was just a handful of days ago ...........

    ......................... relax and have your coffee

    Wow -- you must be really fun at parties.

    So they announce it, and less than 2 weeks later people will have them in their hands... explain to me how that's a paper launch? You do realize a nationwide roll out of millions of dollars worth of hardware doesn't happen in 24 hours right?

    You are complaining that something costing almost 1/2 of a titan but still has 95% of a titan's performance is not worthy of hype? Imagine if Nissan sold something 95% as fast as a GTR for $35k... yeah that's worth the hype.

    AMD announced a t-shirt for their rx vega or whatever they're calling it, nVidia says they'll be out in a week with a date of 3/10, and even though we're still a couple of days off that's a paper launch to you?

    Ha.....you obviously haven't been around for some of the classic "paper launches" there were GPUs that were announced literally months before arrival, that clearly failed, back in the ATI days.

    I don't think a week is a very long time to wait given the circumstances.

    This "launch" was all about timing.

    Unless you are a "gotta have it first" kind of guy, what difference does it make?

    I have my plans for the 1080 Ti in the fall, when the current 4K monitors will be on sale for the football season. So new monitor and two shiny 1080 Ti to drive it......

    The "hype" is obvious. Sell a GPU that is going to out perform a 1000 dollar card for 700....gee I don't get it.......

    If the Ti holds true for a 35% gain over a stock 1080... Mine might be hitting eBay soon.

    Well, to be fair, it's Titan level performance / ~35% faster in some scenarios.

    And it's still technically a paper launch / future product announcement as it is not available at announcement.

    They could, you know... send the products out then announce it. But then people don't have time to prepare their wallets and butts.

    Y'all know if AMD hadn't release Vega t-shirts NVIDIA would never have been pressured into releasing this right? It's only competition that spurs nvidia forward, the real hero here is the RX Vega tshirt

    Hmm, good point. I guess that makes AMDs GDC GPU announcement more of a fabric launch rather than paper?

    technically if people launch products without having any in stock it's a paper launch.
    However 2 weeks from launch is a pretty acceptable time frame to get the product to market.

    Would you rather them drop the card with no announcement at all ? They discussed it because the timing lined up with an event, seems reasonable to me.

    That's true, but it's still an absurd gripe when the entire problem with paper launches was(as previously mentioned) actual product release times measured in months and not even weeks or days.

    If these are true, this is a pretty good indicator of 1080ti performing where they have claimed.

    My Pascal Titan only hits 2063Mhz on water, with the core temp below 40c under load, and even then frequently drops down to 2050Mhz.

    Granted, I may not have won the silicon lottery...

    It's a little more complicated than that, they didnt do much to disable performance and upgraded the memory and
    By the way, it's confirmed that water blocks and 3rd party coolers for the titan xp should work with the 1080 ti correct?

    AMD launched Ryzen and it's out on that day. Nvidia had benchmark/spec perf claims and price. Vega @ capsaicin(sp?) was not just vega and more of a teaser + platform tech roundup, no solid performance claims at all or price. Vega is not one card it's multiple cards/architecture and not a single card announcement. Totally different things. Honestly I don't know wtf AMD is doing with Vega, just fucking around to squeeze process improvements so it doesn't completely bomb?

    I had expected these Tis to be out after the build up and hyping but guess I'm being impatient after AMD being ready on the day with Ryzen. Yeah it's not far away but with all the fanfare I'd expected them to be doing a Ryzen, not like they don't have a stash of binned Titan chips already...

    I cant speak for all of them, and I don't know of anyone who has tested yet, but EK did release a press release to the affect that their Titan X Pascal full cover blocks would fit, yes.

    This probably means others will too, but you never know.

    Zarathustra[H] 2050mhz, if you're lucky you might get 2150 which is only 5 %, 2250 is insanely lucky and extremely rare.


    Anyway at 2ghz you're sitting on 14 tflops of compute, which is double stock 980ti, with a memory overclock taken into account I think the performance difference between average OC Pascal and the lucky outliers is probably in the 5% range, which to me is in the realm of irrelevance really. 5% can't make or break anything, only for benchmarking I guess.

    I honestly find it somewhat odd that some people on tech forums speak as though the performance of the 1080ti is a complete mystery, it's exactly the same as a Titan X and will likely overclock similarly, I will eat my hat if the 1080ti can clock higher given similar cooling.

    The slight reduction in bus width and rop count is unlikely to matter outside of edge cases (10k gaming anyone?) and more workstation oriented loads. Meh.

    Volta is ramping into production soon and all those gp102 chips had to go somewhere

    Edit:

    It's possible that the new 11gt/s rated memory chips can clock higher

    I'm sure it's not going to be out-of-this-world, but I would bet the overclocking is better than the Titan X. Simply based on the improved memory and the redesigned VRMs, you should get more, cleaner power, which will probably help the max clocks.

    Unlikely you'd really notice it while gaming, but it'll probably show up in benchmarks.

    Well I would hope Ryzen wasn't a paper launch. It has only been talked about since last year from various forums about dethroning Intel.

    But hey, hope Vega competes with the 1080 pretty well.

    What the hell are you talking about? This is a thread about GPUs. I didn't say anything about ryzen, and was very specifically referring to Vega, which has been hyped up for months without a damned thing to show for it except a lousy t-shirt(no really, that t-shirt was ugly. Looked like a giant pair of red cartoon scissors or something).

    As far as what AMD did with Ryzen, no it was not out after a day. They did one of the most absurd things I had ever seen, and announced pre-orders for it as a complete unknown with no independent testing. The pre-orders that Nvidia did for the 1080ti aren't any better in principle, but the 1080ti was not a brand new product making broad claims with no previous versions that were independently tested to speculate on performance. Claiming that AMD was "ready on the day" with ryzen is a damned lie since pre-orders were announced on 2/24 with no actual product available to consumers till 3/2. The 1080ti hadn't been hyped up with a year of bullshit benchmarks and press conferences, was announced on 2/28, and availability is supposed to be on 3/10. That is a 2 day difference between ryzen's official "launch" with pre-orders and availability, and the 1080ti "launch" and availability.

    Get over it.

    The reviewers also have 1080ti's in hand already, and reviews should start popping up pretty soon.

    Indeed, and another massive difference between the 1080ti and ryzen, is that ryzen was dependent upon BIOS updates from manufacturers and AMD seemingly dropped the ball on giving the motherboard manufacturers enough time to finalize things before shipping out hardware to reviewers. Fortunately a videocard generally doesn't rely on another manufacturer's product to actually work, unlike a CPU.

    Well, I don't really blame AMD for that one. Ryzen seems to be pretty much what was expected, a much cheaper, slightly slower alternative to the top-end Intel chips. Since everything is brand new with their lineup, we should expect a couple months before things are tuned and tweaked by MB, OS and memory manufacturers. It'd be crazy to assume that everything would be at peak performance with no hiccups out the door.

    The 1080Ti on the other hand is a new card, but using a previously-released GPU on a previously-released PCB. Nvidia said it will slot between the 1080 and the Titan XP, and they did the exact same last gen with the 980 and Titan XM. Because of that history, I'd expect it to be tuned very well on release, with maybe some driver updates a week or two after release.

    I don't really "blame" AMD for it either(they could have given their partners some more time to get things sorted out) for it not being flawless on launch day, rather it's an example of why pre-ordering a brand new architecture like that is something I find to be absurd.

    I'm hoping improved VRM's and better die quality than the early runs will make it a better overclocker.

    It may not, but it is unlikely to be worse.

    Considering I can still sell my Titan for more than the 1080ti price, trying it won't hurt :p

    Agreed. I'm not a pre-order fan by any stretch, but there's no way I could see pre-ordering something that's that much of a change. I wouldn't pre-order a brand-new architecture by Intel or Nvidia either. I'd be fine with a revision or minor change, like the 1080Ti or the Devil's Canyon release..But a brand new MB chipset and CPU? Nahh, I'll let someone else be the guinea pig.

    Fact of the matter: when they announced it, the product existed in it's final form, in boxes, ready to go. Maybe sitting in a container ship on a dock somewhere, or on trucks all over the country getting to their destination, but from the time they announced it it was real and ready for the consumer.

    The fab time, tool up time, production time, these are all months and months ago, "sending the product out" was probably long long ago, the last step of the journey for these cards is simply getting them into retail channels. From a logistics time frame, waiting 10 to 14 days from announcement to product in peoples hands is lightning quick.

    I certainly hope you are right. Webpage still lists "Notify". I hope these will be easier to get ones hands on when they finally do pop up than the Titan X was at launch.
