Could you please make clear - why:
Pixel Fill Rate = 140.8 MPix/s
Texel Fill Rate = 358. MTex/s?

According to Base Clock Frequency (1480 MHz) it should be:
88 x 1.480 = 130.24 MPix/s
224 x 1.480 = 331.52 MTex/s

Even with Maximum Clock Frequency (1582 MHz):
88 x 1.582 = 139.22 MPix/s
224 x 1.582 = 354.37 MTex/s

Am I not right?

What do you think the chances are that nVidia is selling this ahead of Vega because they know they will not sell as many post vega release? After all someone who buys this now won't buy a gpu next month that performs better.
Could also be they expect an uptick in PC sales this month and want to offer a new product to pair with new PC builds.

You 100% right. Nice finding :)

GPU-Z has a bug or better - the driver is reporting wrong numbers. Nvidias drivers said 96 but in real we have 88, the GPU-Z calculation is wrong. Just talked with the guy who made it and he corrected it now.


Good question. But we have a NDA for the 1080 Ti and absolute no info about Vega. This is pure speculation atm.

They are trying to snatch all sales they can taking advantage of AMD's failure to release VEGA.

We know that VEGA will be about 10% faster than the 1080, so even when hi-end VEGA is here, the 1080TI will still be at the top.

1080 TI>Vega Hi-End>1080>Vega Mid Hi-End>1070

I took it as more of a shot across the bow to your typical youtuber unboxers/reviewers. Tom's raised the bar (again).

It's too bad the editor in chief probably enjoys handling that role. He's well suited for broadcasting and wouldn't be out of place at all on any major news network as a go-to industry specialist.

Curious: Are any of the pictures of the thermal fleece? It's something I've never heard of before, but when I try to google it, I keep getting clothes (even when I add in the word "computer). I'd like to know what it is.

The problem was again Nvidias salamitactics. Here a thin slice of info, there a few words. I decided to use their NDA for today word by word to unbox it completely. What the hell is unboxing? Grey area. And I'm sure, the editor in chief is a good guy ;)


This material is not new but not usual. I have no idea why Nvidia used this different kind of tape. It's like cotton, smashed with thermal grease. Really funny stuff.

Take a look at the cooler picture, there you will find a lot of this white pieces. The picture is HiRes, you can zoom it.


I doesn't know it and unconfirmed rumors are simply waste of time. 10% faster as what? Founders or oc'ed custom models? This is nothing to believe it. We have to wait. :( I saw (and heard) a Vega engineering sample a few times, but if the PR is showing something, you can be sure, that you see all and nothing. Only what AMD allowed and filtered.

Achaicos: How do you know the "Performance" Of Vega?
How do you know that it will perform slower than the 1080 TI? Was there leaked full performance reviews and tests?
And considering AMD's optimization.. I would say that the VEGA card (like all others in the past) could get up to 25% more performance with optimizations.

As a 4K-gamer I simply need ONE powerful card, that gives me the full experience. I have two 1080's as SLI and this microstuttering is killing me so often. I'm very sensitive for such things and I simply hope, that one of this upcoming cards can solve this problems.

I can't spoiler any results until NDA fall, sorry for that. So don't ask me :)

what are the chances that Nvidia's "2X" more spacious vapor chamber and updated cooling design are just some thermal pads slapped on?

I wonder if the 1080 Ti has all the same features that the Titan has. The price difference is so huge that it makes me think there should be some difference in capabilities.

Don't worry, I plugged it in after he was done kid-handling the card and made sure nothing was damaged. ;)

FormatC, I don't think this sentence, "They offer up to 11 GB/s, ...", is quite what you'd intended. ;D

Btw, most seller sites here (UK) stopped selling 980s ages ago. In the UK, if you want a 980, get one off ebay, there are loads.

In the table you mislabeled memory bandwidth in MB/s instead of GB/s.

Unless you're telling me a Pentium 3 with PC133 RAM has double the memory bandwidth of a GTX 1080Ti
