Inno3D GeForce GTX 1080 Ti iChill X3 and iChill X4 Unveiled – Beastly Cooling Designs on Pascal GP102 GPU
Inno3D has just announced their beastly GeForce GTX 1080 Ti iChill graphics cards which features an entirely custom design. The new graphics cards rock the Pascal GP102 GPU which is the ultimate card aimed at 4K gamers and enthusiasts.
Inno3D GeForce GTX 1080 TI iChill X3 and iChill X4 Announced - Rock A Beastly Cooler
The new graphics cards were announced in a press release issued by Inno3D (via Videocardz). The card is an absolute juggernaut, featuring a triple fan cooler that delivers outstanding cooling performance. iChill series is designed to feature the best cooling performance and this one is no exception. The iChill series heatsink feature a very dense aluminum fin array which has several heatpipes running through the whole block.
Inno3D GeForce GTX 1080 Ti iChill series cards come in a brushed metallic color scheme. The entire cooler shroud assembly looks great. The Inno3D iChill X4 series cards come with additional fan cooling. The extra cooling includes a fourth fan on the side of the shroud which features PWM fan control and idling tech so that the fan doesn't spin when the card is idling.
Both cards feature dual slot designs and will be featuring an 8+6 Pin power configuration. The more beefy iChill X4 will use a dual 8-pin design for better overclocking potential. We can expect pricing of the iChill series cards around $699-$759 US. The cards will be launching on 10th March, 2017. ASUS, Zotac and MSI have also teased their new cards which will be available during launch day.
The new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti iChiLL X3 and X4 GPUs also come equipped with INNO3D’s unmatched iChiLL cooling solution -awarded for better performance at lower noise levels- improves the overall active temperature control. The Herculez Armor back-plate protects the cards from outer damages as well and puts it way at the top of Ultra High End graphics cards in the world.
”I believe gamers will love our new iChiLL gaming GPU. The entire series of GeForce GTX 1080 Ti comes with extreme performance, and we have used the highest quality components worthy of such a product. The iChiLL cooling solution makes the INNO3D custom-built graphics card to be the perfect weapon for every gamer." via Inno3D
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Specifications – Better and Faster Than Titan X (P) With The Fastest G5X Memory, Up To 1.2 TB/s Bandwidth With New Compression System
NVIDIA has gone all out with the specifications of their grandest graphics card to date. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti features the same Pascal GP102 GPU featured on the Titan X (P) but is better than that in all ways possible. The NVIDIA GP102 Pascal GPU packs 12 Billion transistors and has 6 graphics processing clusters of which two are disabled. This adds up to a total of 28 SM units with 128 cores each. A truly OG chip designed for the ultimate gamer out there.
The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti features 3584 CUDA Cores, 224 Texture Mapping Units and 88 ROPs. These are clocked at a boost clock of 1582 MHz which can go as high as 2 GHz with overclocking. The Pascal cards are built to overclock like crazy and custom models will further boost the clock rates on availability day.
The card also features a 11 GB GDDR5X VRAM that run across a 352-bit bus interface. NVIDIA has shipped their flagship with the fastest G5X solution to date.
The Titan X (P) used 10 GB/s models while the 1080 Ti makes use of the new 11 GB/s memory chips which results in a cumulative bandwidth of 484 GB/s that’s going to be on par with SK Hynix’s HBM2 memory launching in Q2 2017.
