Rumor: Geforce GTX 1080 with Pascal GPU and 8GB gddr5x coming in May




Nvidia announced the GeForce GTX in May 1080 to, says a Taiwanese site. The manufacturer would provide the map of the Pascal-based architecture GP104 GPU. Nvidia would not use HBM2 but choose gddr5x.

The exact date for the announcement Bench Life calls is 27 May and that starts four days before the Taiwanese Computex technology exhibition. Bench Life regularly correct information about Intel and AMD products out early; or the site also has authentic sources is not known within Nvidia. Videocardz believes , moreover, that the card is more like 1800 GTX will go through life.

The GTX 1080 could have a 256bit memory interface. The card according to the information given one 8pin power connector and outputs are DVI, HDMI and two display ports available. The card’s GPU would be the GP104. This is the first GPU from Nvidia that will be based on the new Pascal architecture and also the company’s first GPU that will be produced on a 16nm FinFET-process from TSMC. Nvidia would be early April at its GPU Technology Conference more detailed release on the Pascal architecture.

The card would have gddr5x under the current rumor and not hbm2. In previous presentations on Pascal showed Nvidia hinted that could be used for this generation hbm2. That will perhaps happen in subsequent maps, but it is remarkable. Nvidia would use Samsung memory and that group announced to be launched in January to the mass production of hbm2. In contrast, Micron let out production gddr5x pass to begin in the summer.

Hbm2 offers a higher bandwidth than GDDR5 hbm and as well the stacked memory takes up less space. Gddr5x provides double the bandwidth of GDDR5. This type of memory is yet to undergo the opposite hbm and hbm2 but is cheaper to produce.
