Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080


AT $599 and expected to be released on May 27th, 2016, the GTX 1080 is a better value than previous Nvidia offerings.

Besides operating at 9 TFLOPS and having 8GB of G5X ram, it also has the following:

  • 7680×4320@60Hz support
  • HDMI 2.0b interface with HDCP 2.2
  • Displayport 1.4
  • A surprisingly low power consumption of 180 W (at maximum)

It’s nice to see HDMI 2.0b standard being used.  It’s not clear if this card has HEVC h.265 support but we would be surprised if it didn’t.
