ZOTAC’s Custom GeForce GTX 1080 Ti PGF Extreme Graphics Card Pictured – Dual 8-Pin Power Connectors, Impressive Cooling, Crafted For Enthusiasts

Mar 3, 2017

NVIDIA’s AIB partner, Zotac, has also started teasing their custom GeForce GTX 1080 TI PGF graphics card. The new card features a fully custom PCB layout and an enthusiast-grade cooling system that will allow big overclocks.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Ti PGF (Prime Gamer Force) Teased – Crafted For High-End Gamers and Enthusiasts

The Zotac Geforce GTX 1080 Ti PGF was pictured by Videocardz. The new card features an enthusiast tier design since it rocks a beefy cooling solution and a fully custom PCB. We are looking at a triple fan cooler that pushes air down to the dense aluminum fin array. This aluminum fin array is fitted with several copper heatpipes that channel heat throughout the heatsink.

There are several major components of the PCB, which comes with a base plate and a wide board design. The card is powered by a dual 8-pin configuration which means this product is going to allow some big OC’ing numbers. On the back, we are looking at a fully custom backplate which incorporates an RGB LED. Actually, the whole cooling system and the backplate come with ZOTAC’s RGB system which can be controlled from their Firestorm tuning utility.

We can see that the PCB uses high quality components such as the Power Boost 2.0 capacitors. This allows a stable supply to the core when running under overclocked conditions. There are also a few overclocking friendly features such as a USB connector that allows you to control some functions of the GPU. We can expect this GPU to hit 2000 MHz boost speeds under operation. But it should cost slightly more than the $699 US price. ASUS and MSI have also teased their new cards which will be available during launch day.

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.
