The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 has just arrived recently and it really is an interesting innovation from the coveted graphics card company. It’s interesting to see that a company like NVIDIA does try to innovate year after year and now we do have quite a lot of interesting benefits coming in from this device.

The design is pretty much similar to the other models that came beforehand, so there isn’t that much innovation here to be honest, but where the device does shine is under the hood.

You get an interesting Pascal architecture that allows users to harness even more processing power and a solid gaming experience. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 tends to address the 4K sector of gaming because 1080p is quite reachable already.

Adding a humongous memory of 8 GB is a good step forward considering that the previous models didn’t have that. They still offer GDDR5 which is obviously the best standard here. Also, with 2560 CUDA cores the performance was never better and it does manage to showcase some incredible experiences. It’s a lot of fun for sure and the great attention to detail is well worth it.

Another great thing about the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 is that it features a 1607MHz clock speed. It really manages to convey a lot of quality because of that and combined with the 320 GBPS bandwidth the device does manage to shine quite a lot.

If you use it in games, you will definitely see a major boost in your gaming experience. Many see the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 as better than the Titan X from NVIDIA which is even more. That’s what really manages to convey some incredible experiences especially for gamers, but video editors and other categories of users might also like it.

The device is designed with power in mind and you will definitely notice it. It hits more than 60 FPS all the time in all the new games when you run in 1080P however it does struggle with 4K games and it won’t really reach 60 FPS with them, which is understandable but still a major letdown to be honest.

The price of around $600 to $700 (INR 40-50k) is expensive for sure but it does feel justified. The architecture is new and there are some great improvements to be had here which do justify why people would have to pay so much more.

However, if you own a 980TI you shouldn’t really focus on upgrading but for those who have a 780 for example this might be a very good upgrade option. Although, at the end, it all comes down to you.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 is a solid purchase for variety of gamers and if you want a good graphics card this is the best on the market. AMD is more focused in providing higher quality for entry level market, which means that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 is unbeatable in its category, at least for now!
