NVIDIA is definitely the king of the high-end GPU market and has cemented their position with the new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Each NVIDIA GPU series has a flagship card and that card often receives a Ti version, which is, of course, an enhanced version of the original.
The original GeForce GTX 1080 was destroyed the competition when it was launched last year. However, the GTX 1080 Ti is the greatest leap any of the previous Ti versions have had over their respective originals, with a claimed 35% increase in performance.
Not only does the 1080 Ti trump its little brother but it also beats its cousin, The Pascal version of the highly acclaimed Titan X. The Titan X has launched 2 years ago and was a “Beast” at that time. With 12 GB of memory, nothing came close to it.

But times have changed and the new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti even beats its monster of a cousin for less price as the Titan X costs $1100 whereas the 1080 Ti is priced at $699.
The GTX 1080 Ti has 11 GB of memory and 11 Gbps bandwidth. The new card has over a thousand more CUDA cores as well as 24 more ROPs. The texture units have been increased to a total of 224, meaning a 40% increase over the super expensive Titan X.
Early reviews of the GPU have mostly been positive, with many reviewers noting the increase in performance over the regular GeForce GTX 1080.
This new monster of a graphics card is exactly what enthusiasts were waiting for, especially those wanting to run their video games on the 4K resolution. Though there are a few issues and it falls short of the hype at some places, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is the go-to the card to buy right now as it that offers the most solid gaming experience at the lowest price possible. NVIDIA has increased their market for this card with the lowered price tag.
