The first hardware of the year has arrived, and there’s already a lot to look forward to.
With the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, AMD is taking the gaming market by storm.
The new card is powered by the latest Pascal architecture, but it has a much lower TDP than its predecessor.AMD says the GTX 1080Ti will have a base clock speed of 1026MHz, a boost clock speed that should be at 1050MHz.
It will be clocked at 1170MHz and will have an effective boost clock of 1176MHz.
AMD says the card will offer a total of 10 GB of GDDR5X memory and support up to 4096 Stream processors.AMD’s claim of a “minimal” TDP is actually quite a mouthful, as we saw when the card was announced at Computex in September.
The TDP claims to be somewhere between 15W and 20W, which AMD is claiming will make it ideal for gamers looking for the best gaming experience.AMD is also claiming the GTX 1070 Ti will offer the best performance of any 1080 Ti in the market, as it will have double the CUDA cores, 8GB of GDDR4 memory and an effective GPU Boost clock speed up to 1175MHz.
The card will also feature a new thermal solution with a maximum of four fans.
The GeForce GTX 1070Ti will be available to purchase in October, but AMD has yet to announce an exact release date.AMD has also released a number of gaming benchmarks and benchmarks for the new card.
The Radeon RX Vega 64, RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 54 are all listed on AMD’s website, but the company has yet for us to get our hands on a reference card from any of the three vendors.
We do have some information from our friends at OC3D that shows the RX Vega 48 and RX 560 have a similar base clock speeds.
The RX Vega Vega 48 has a baseclock of 930MHz, while the RX 560 clocks in at 935MHz.
That means the RX 580 has an effective clock speed at 797MHz, which is much lower than the RX 460 and RX 470.
We don’t have any more information on how much better the GTX 1060 is compared to the RX 470, but we do have the AMD Radeon RX 480 at 8GB, with an effective Boost clock of 935 MHz.
This is much higher than the 1070 Ti’s 8GB Boost clock.AMD claims the RX 480 will be ready for launch in October and will come with 4GB of HBM2 memory.
This will be an additional step up from the 2GB that we saw in the RX 400 series.
The AMD Radeon Fury X will have 4GB HBM, but that card is still on the way to launch.
