At the announcement of our next-generation graphics card, the GeForce GTX 1080, we demonstrated the power of the 10 Series and the Pascal architecture by running a high-fidelity demo, live. Featuring High Dynamic Range lighting, advanced visual effects, and unprecedented levels of detail, the demo brings other graphics cards to their knees. Not the GeForce GTX 1080 though - it powered through at a smooth 60 FPS, with an overclocked Core clock speed of 2.1GHz, and an overclocked Memory clock speed of 11GHz. And it didn’t break a sweat, either, running at only 67℃ in the hot Texan nightclub that we transformed into a world stage.
The GeForce GTX 1080 running this demo wasn’t liquid-cooled, or souped-up with special hardware - it was the NVIDIA Founders Edition GeForce GTX 1080, which anyone can buy come May 27th.
