ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition



After Kepler and Maxwell touch to another “illustrious”, Blaise Pascal, mathematician, physicist, and, in the last years of life, a philosopher and theologian, the role of “testimonial” of the new family of GPUs NVIDIA.

Filed debut at the in April during the GTC, where Pascal was presented in its most complete form, or the GP100 GPU Tesla HPC module P100, after one month was presented the first solution for the consumer market , namely the GeForce 1080 GTX GPU with GP104.

For the technical specifications we refer to the table below, while that we think is important to point out right away is like, finally, even the discrete GPU market can rely on a different production process from the usual 28nm which we had become accustomed to over three generations of chips.

The new Pascal GPU fact uses the FinFET + process with node to 16nm of TSMC, which ensures the clock speed increases, reduction of the area of ​​the chip, and therefore the energy absorbed and the current dispersion, in combination, of course, to an increase of total number of transistors.

The numbers that affect us most are the working frequency of the GPU, the bandwidth value of memories which, remember, are the new GDDR5X 10Gbps able to guarantee, with a “just” 256-bit bus with data rate, 320 GB / s of bandwidth and a 180W TDP, higher than that of an “old” GTX 980 but lower than the 980 Ti.

Greater number of CUDA Cores, more bandwidth available, the higher operating frequency: all the right ingredients to ensure the GeForce 1080 GTX to overcome, as is always the case, the performance of the previous generation of GPUs.

GP104 is faster than the GM204 will see him, just after having analyzed the new architecture Pascal, evaluating the performance of the ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition subject of our review today.
