NVIDIA announces the GTX 1060, a new gaming graphics card with a new architecture
NVIDIA has revealed its new flagship gaming graphics cards, the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080, which will be launching in early 2019.
The GTX 1070 is a 16nm GPU with a peak TDP of 130W, with a TDP rating of around 140W, which means the card has enough power to run a 1440p frame rate in DirectX 12.
NVIDIA claims the card is able to produce 3,600 GFLOPS (2.8TFLOPs) of performance, but the card’s performance is limited by the GTX 1080’s 6GB of GDDR5X.
NVIDIA’s reference designs use 8GB of HBM2, but its likely that the company will add some HBM3 for the GTX 970, with the new GTX 1070 boasting 8GB for each GPU.NVIDIA’s new cards are the first in a line of new graphics cards based on the company’s next-generation Pascal architecture, which is currently codenamed “Pascal C.”
Pascal will feature up to 1.9TFLOPS of peak performance in TDP and around 2.2TFLops of performance in memory bandwidth, while the GTX 980 Ti will boast 1.7TFLop of peak and 3.1TFLOWs in TPU performance.NVIDIA says that the GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 will launch at a price of $999 for the card, while Nvidia’s GTX 1050 X is $1,399.
Nvidia has also released a new card for its $199 GeForce GTX 1050.
The company’s reference GTX 10 series cards were already released with a number of high-end features, including overclocking, overclocking support and Nvidia’s DirectCU III cooling solution.
However, Pascal is the first GPU to use a new chip design for the GPU market, which could also mean some features from previous generations are not compatible with Pascal.
The new card will feature Nvidia’s new GPU Boost 2.0 technology, which aims to boost GPU performance up to 10 percent in all DirectX 12-compliant games.
The new card is also rumored to have a new power design.
The GTX 1070 will feature a total of 16GB of VRAM and will also be able to run games with up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second.NVIDIA is also looking to push out new gaming titles with Pascal-based cards.
The company has announced that it will be adding several more titles to the GeForce Experience library by the end of the year, including Battlefield 1, Horizon Zero Dawn, Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Dishonored 2.
