What we have "Found" with the GTX 1080 Founders Edition...

Posted by   Paul Dunn

So now that we've had chance to put the new NVIDIA GTX 1080 Founders edition cards through their paces, we thought we'd share with you some further details on the truly astonishing power of NVIDIA's flagship hardware.

There's a host of brand new hardware and technologies which have been implemented in the 1080 architecture: The power supply has been upgraded to 5 phase dualFET with enhanced phase balancing and maximised bandwidth, reduced peak to peak voltage and GDDR5x memory.

This advanced interface standard obtains transfer rates of 10 Gbps - perfect for handling large amounts of texture data at bigger resolutions.

the new vapour chamber system on the reference design provides improved cooling which in turn of course enables more overclocking potential.

VR of course is a big consideration and the 1080's rendering processes are tuned specifically for this purpose.

All in all this means that NVIDIA have truly opened the door to the next level of graphics power and therefore gaming.

What the individual manufacturers each make of the card with their own versions is still under close wraps, but one thing is for sure - there's never been a better time to be a PC gamer...
