On the outside, the GTX 1080 Ti looks much like its predecessor, the GTX 1080. It has, however, been redesigned in terms of power supply and cooling. The real kicker is that the card which will only be moderately priced higher than the GTX 1080 will see a 35 percent performance boost in terms of speed, bigger than the jumps to Ti in both the 780 and 980.
Made to handle anything 4K gaming and Virtual Reality can throw at it, the GTX 1080 Ti is coming out much sooner than you think. The card is slated to arrive next week on March 10th per the announcement and reveal by Nvidia.
