NVIDIA to launch GeForce GTX 1080 in May

NVIDIA is set to release many new products this year but the most important launch will be of the first Pascal-based GPUs. Just like before, NVIDIA will release a few Pascal-based video cards first, powered by the GP104 GPU, which will show what the new architecture is capable of and then the full power of Pascal will be unleashed with the release of the GP100 graphics processing unit. Previously expected in June 2016, the first Pascal video card may appear a bit earlier – in May 2016.

Called GeForce GTX 1080, the card will likely come with a surprise – it may feature GDDR5X memory instead of HBM2. Still, this is good news, since the new GDDR5X memory is faster than the popular GDDR5, which is pretty much everywhere nowadays. This means that the GP100 GPU will likely enjoy the full power of HBM2 memory.

The upcoming GTX 1080 is expected to come with a single 8-pin power connector, which hints once again that Pascal will be an energy-efficient architecture. The card will likely come with TDP lower than 225W, 8 GB of GDDR5X memory, two DisplayPort connectors, one DVI port and another HDMI port.

The GTX 1080 will likely be unveiled on May 27 or just a few days before Computex 2016.
