The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is a mean machine based on NVIDIA's second biggest implementation of its "Pascal" architecture, the 16 nm "GP102" silicon. This is the same chip that drives the TITAN X Pascal. The GTX 1080 Ti features the same number of CUDA cores as the latest TITAN, at 3,584 spread across 28 streaming multiprocessors. There is some cost-cutting here, but none that is designed to lower performance - the chip has a slightly narrower memory bus at 352 bit; that's one memory chip less than what you'd find on the TITAN X Pascal. The total memory amount is hence 11 GB. A cluster of ROPs is also disabled, so you now get 88 ROPs (as opposed to the 96 ROPs on the TITAN). The memory chips are, however, clocked 10% higher to make up for the 8.3% narrower memory bus. This move also translates into cost savings due to the lack of a 12th memory chip and probably better yields for the GP102 chip.

The Palit GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GameRock Premium is Palit's new flagship card. It introduces a triple-slot, stacked quad-fan thermal solution, which promises higher air pressure and lower noise. Out of the box, the card comes overclocked to a frequency of 1594 MHz (OC Mode), but you can also switch to a quiet mode BIOS that runs at 1518 MHz.

Palit's products are not available in the US. In Europe, the card is listed for €834, which we converted to $770 for comparisons in this review.
