You may recall our recent blog post introducing the NVIDIA TITAN X™ GPU, which made desktop supercomputing a much more affordable proposition. Well, NVIDIA has just raised the bar again with the GTX 1080 Ti.
The GTX 1080 Ti looks to be a compelling alternative to the Titan X. It’s much more affordable, and in many aspects, has superior performance. Equally importantly, NVIDIA has not imposed any performance limits on the 1080 Ti to prevent competition with their more expensive Titan X. As a result, the 1080 Ti should be very popular for GPU computing. Unless a user’s workload demands the additional 1GB of VRAM found in the Titan, the GTX 1080 Ti could be the smart choice for GPU computing.
The GTX 1080 Ti is now available. Within the next week or two, we will be doing extensive benchmarking of this new GPU in our Velocity D58PSC Workstation. Check back here for a future blog post where we will quantify the performance differences between the GTX 1080 Ti and Titan X.
