This is not an “exciting” launch where a new $150 card beats last year’s $500 card, but it is a good launch nonetheless. NVIDIA has new $110 and $150 cards, and they both perform well for their respective price points.
NVIDIA’s latest release is the $1,200 NVIDIA Titan X (no “GeForce,” no “GTX,” just “Titan X”).
Yes, that’s one thousand and two hundred American $$$ USD $$$ money-dollars! With a price tag like that, performance expectations should be very high, and the Titan X does not disappoint. I hear you asking, and the answer is: Yes, this card CAN play Witcher 3 at 4K resolution at 60 frames per second! This new card is about 30-40% more powerful than the GTX 1080.
Updated January 2017, with new Intel CPUs, new SSDs, and better choices for RAM and HDDs.
At factory clock speeds, the GTX 1060 claims to be equal to last generation’s GTX 980 in performance, while only sipping 120W of power. All of this at a price of $249!
The youngest of NVIDIA’s new 1000-series family, the GTX 1060, launches today. It is a hard launch, and cards are available for sale, if you can snag one fast enough.
In the few minutes that it took to write this blog post, I have watched several versions of the card go out of stock! And why? The card has excellent 1080p performance, and its low power draw means that it runs cool and quiet.
The GTX 1060 theoretically launches at $300 for the reference edition, and $250 for the non-reference. Realistically, the card will likely sell for $300-$350 for the next few months.
The NVIDIA GTX 1080 is releasing on May 27th, and early reviews (see below) indicate it is quite majestic.
This new card will launch at $700 for reference versions, with $600 versions coming later. The card performs between 20-25% better than the $1000 GTX Titan X, the previous generation’s king. Right off the bat, it has some impressive numbers:
Last night, NVIDIA unveiled its upcoming GeForce GTX 1000-series, based on its new 16nm Pascal architecture. The GTX 1080 launches May 27th for $600, while the GTX 1070 will arrive on June 10th for $380.
