Its purpose is to take advantage of better manufacturing yields and decreased costs in able to produce a bigger, more powerful GPU. The GTX 1080 Ti is much faster than its predecessor.
According to NVIDIA, this new card is loaded by Pascal to perform twice as better other graphic cards in today's market. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti's speed is not the only noticeable thing about the card.

It also features a next generation VR experience which helps fans edit screenshots while playing. Not only that, but these screenshots is said to appear in 360 degrees.
The screenshots are also shareable and accessible between PCs, VR headsets, and even smartphones. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 is unique and three times faster than other graphic cards in the market, all thanks to its six graphics processing clusters and 12 billion transistors.
Aside from those, the GTX 1080 also features an 11-GB GDDR5X frame buffering. It can also perform at 11Gpbs speed, and can even boost up to 1582 MHz at a suitable temperature.
How much does it cost? The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti prices in at approximately $699.
