GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 will have 8 GB memory

Little by little NVIDIA’s plans for the Pascal GPU generation become clear – there will be several Pascal GPUs with the GP100 reserved for high-performance computing applications and the so-called GP104 GPU powering NVIDIA’s desktop flagships – the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070. It has now become clear that both cards will feature 8 GB of on-board memory, which will be GDDR5 (GTX 1070) or GDDR5X (GTX 1080) so say goodbye to HBM memory for these two cards.

There’s still little information on these two models but given that the GP104 has a 256-bit memory bus, the GTX 1080 will likely feature 320-384 GB/sec of memory bandwidth. Thanks to the use of GDDR5X the GTX 1080 will be 70 per cent faster than the GTX 980 and 14 per cent faster than the GTX 980 Ti in the memory bandwidth department.

The new video cards will be launched during Computex 2016, which will take place between May 31 and June 4 of this year.
