GeForce GTX 1080 Ti may be a strong contender to the Titan X

Nvidia's newest graphics card could prove itself a strong opponent to the Titan X, if rumors are to be believed. Borrowing the same GP102 GPU, the 1080 Ti will be clocked faster than any other of its previous iterations, translating into 10.8 TFLOPs of compute power and falling just under the Titan X's 11 TFLOPs.

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card's specifications may have been leaked courtesy of a forum member on Hardware Battle. If they prove to be real, the hardware could exist as a strong contender to the Titan X.

Borrowing the same GP102 GPU from it's aforementioned competitor, the 1080 Ti will sport 52 streaming multiprocessor units, a little less than the Titan X's 56, and 3,328 CUDA cores, not far off from the Titan X at 3,584 (and way more than the plain GTX 1080 at 2,560). It's also clocked faster than ever, translating into 10.8 TFLOPs of compute power, just under the Titan X's 11 TFLOPs.

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card's specifications
Though the Titan X still has significantly more memory bandwidth (12GB of GDDR5X memory on a 384-bit bus pushing 480GB/s, whereas the GTX 1080 Ti pushes 384GB/s with the same amount of memory on the same bus width), the 1080 Ti is still a vast improvement to the vanilla GTX 1080, which uses 8GB of GDDR5X memory on a 256-bit bus to achieve 320GB/s.

The validity of this leak is called into question when memory is examined, however, as it seems doubtful that Nvidia would forgo usurping the Titan X with a card that would end up costing less and providing more. By improving clockspeeds and utilizing a better memory bus, the manufacturer could enjoy a more lucrative niche if it went another route.

Only time can tell when fans truly learn the truth. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card is most likely to be officially unveiled during Nvidia's conference at CES in January.
