Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB Graphics Card Review
     Thu, Mar 09 2017 | 11:13P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The power race is about to kick up yet another gear this week, as Nvidia prepare to launch their new flagship consumer gaming graphics card; the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. The new high-end card features the GP102 GPU used in the Titan X, delivering a staggering 3584 CUDA cores, 224 Texture Units, a 352-bit memory controller, and a massive 11GB of GDDR5X memory. The boost clock is more than 85% higher than that of the GTX 980, and while it’s a few years old, the 980 is hardly a slouch in gaming tasks. It’s also clocked to deliver around 35% performance improvement over the GTX 1080, the biggest boost for any Ti series card to date! So we’re expecting nothing short of exceptional performance from this graphics card.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition 11 GB

Posted by: STAFF
Today NVIDIA released the GTX 1080 Ti, which is the company's fastest graphics card ever. It conclusively beats the much more expensive GTX Titan X in our testing. While the NVIDIA reference cooler looks amazing, its cooling potential could be improved though as our review shows.

Posted by: STAFF
"When I reviewed the NVIDIA Titan X based on Pascal back in August of last year, I had to caveat every statement with something along the lines of "if you are willing to pay the premium" blah blah. At $1200, and a solid $500-600 more than the next best performance GeForce product on the market, it was tough to make the claim that ANYONE should buy that product for gaming purpose. With the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti offering nearly identical (maybe slightly better) performance than the Titan X, and for a $500 lower MSRP, those caveats no longer need apply. Yes, $699 is still incredibly expensive for a component for a gaming PC, but it is within reach of the current lineup (GTX 1080 at $499-549)."

Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Mar 09 2017 | 8:13P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After almost a year of different rumors, Nvidia announced the GTX 1080 Ti last week along with a few other announcements at GDC. Recently GTX 1080 owners were most likely disappointed to hear about the price drops for the GTX 1080 and the new faster 1080’s as well. Not to mention the new GTX 1080 Ti is promised to be 35% faster than the GTX 1080. That in itself is really exciting because that is a big performance jump but given all of the launches this year, 2017 is looking like an exciting year for gaming and enthusiasts hardware. Well, today the NDA drops and I can finally dive into the performance of the new video card. Nvidia sent over the GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition, but I hope to see what the aftermarket cards can do as well here soon.

Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition 11GB Review
     Thu, Mar 09 2017 | 7:13P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia’s Titan X Pascal has been dominating at the top of GPU performance charts for a little over seven months, with the gap to the GPU maker’s second-in-line GTX 1080 being a sizeable one. With AMD’s high-end competitors still not available for public adoption, the enthusiast market is ready for a GTX 1080 Ti GPU to offer Titan X-like performance at a price point closer to that of a high-end offering, rather than an ultra-high-end (borderline silly-money) one.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti On Linux: Best Linux Gaming
     Thu, Mar 09 2017 | 6:13P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is NVIDIA's newest, most powerful graphics card for gamers not only on Windows but also under Linux. I only received the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti this morning so here are my initial Linux performance figures for this new high-end Pascal graphics card compared to other NVIDIA and AMD Radeon graphics cards. Linux VR tests, CUDA/OpenCL compute benchmarks, and additional GeForce GTX 1080 Ti results will be published in the days ahead when having more time to spend with this graphics card."

GTX 1080 Ti really is 35% faster than the GTX 1080!
     Thu, Mar 09 2017 | 5:13P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GTX 1080 Ti from NVIDIA is finally upon us, and it aims to be nothing less than the chipmaker's newest flagship graphics card for enthusiasts who demand nothing less than the best gaming performance no matter the price point! Like its predecessor the GTX 1080 Ti leverages Pascal architecture for its GP102 GPU, only except it features a beefier 28 Streaming Multiprocessors for a total of 3584 CUDA cores. The GTX 1080 Ti will offer a 1480/1582 MHz base/boost core clock out of the box, and comes with 11.264GB GDDR5X RAM running on a 352-bit interface, for a total 484 GB/s bandwidth and an 11 Gbps memory data rate.

MSI Z270 XPower Gaming Titanium Edition Review

With the Z270 XPower Gaming Titanium Edition, MSI has a very well equipped motherboard in its portfolio, which comes with lots of features. There are for example three M.2 x4 Gen 3 slots. Apart from that this board comes with a great looking, unique design. Furthermore there is arguably one of the most high-end power designs on this motherboard.

MSI GTX 1060 Aero ITX 6G OC @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Mar 08 2017 | 5:34P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to LAN rigs, there are some cases that support full sized cards, but when getting into the smallest options they need shorter ITX sized cards. Over the past few years, these options have been opening up, especially with the GTX 1060’s where the cooling and power requirements are a little lower but the performance is still what people are looking for. I’ve had the chance to check out one ITX sized 1060 back at launch and one that was close as well. Well MSI is introducing their new Aero ITX lineup with a GTX 1050 Ti, GTX 1060, and a GTX 1070. Today we have the chance to check out the GTX 1060 so I’m going to see what MSI is doing differently and then find out how it compares to the competition. Is this the card for your LAN rig as we get close to all of the spring events? Let’s find out.

Do minimum-frame-rate values tell an important story about system performance, or do they place undue value in outliers? We deploy a new tool to go Inside the Second to find out.

GTX 1080 Founders Edition SLI Testing @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Mar 05 2017 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well while I have the Crush project build apart I painted the two GTX 1080’s and after that, I had a little extra time. To fill that time I went ahead and put the two cards on our testbench and ran them through our standard test suite to see how they perform. I put all of the results together and today I’m tossing the up for anyone who wants to see how the 1080’s compare in SLI to a single GTX 1080, two RX 480’s, or two GTX 1070’s. As always with our SLI/Crossfire articles, it is mostly just the results with very little content beyond that, so you can use the information to form your own opinions.

TIme teaser at GeForce.com

Posted by: STAFF
Well, the cat's officially out of the bag. Surprising nobody that was paying attention to the TIme teaser at GeForce.com, Nvidia has (or will soon) be launching the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. The card leaked from a trusted source ahead of Nvidia's GeForce event at GDC.

Project Build: Crush – Part 5 – Painting a GTX 1080 FE @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Feb 27 2017 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For some people, you get your computer together and never mess with it again. I, on the other hand, have a problem and as they say, the first thing is to admit you have a problem. I finished up the Crush build and even posted up performance numbers last week. My problem is I keep looking and thinking how much better the build could look with this one change. Once you do that, you are done, right? Nope! Now that you did that, this other thing really needs to be changed. It's an endless battle. Well with Crush I just HAD to pull it all apart and keep messing with it. I'm actually in the middle of a few different changes, but the biggest was painting the two GTX 1080's like I had originally planned. So today I'm going to run through how to paint the new GTX 1080/1070 Founders Edition cards for a nice matching look.

AORUS GTX 1080 XTREME Edition Review
     Sun, Feb 26 2017 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the spotlight today is the AORUS GTX 1080 XTREME. The eagle eyed among you will see a key resemblance to the GIGABYTE’s mighty GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming – both cards are indeed very similar, though there are subtle differences which are mainly seen with the cooling configuration and of course the minor adjustments to the styling.
