NVIDIA will release four GTX 1080 versions

NVIDIA will release four GTX 1080 versions

NVIDIA’s Pascal GPU generation will come with increased performance and many new features and this is a well known fact. But there’s more – Pascal will be the first GPU generation that will be served in four portions. In fact we already have the first one – the reference Founders Edition video cards.

Yes, apart from having the Founders Edition on the market, NVIDIA will release three more flavors of the GeForce GTX 1080 generation. The Founders Edition will be followed by a new crop of GTX 1080 cards with limited overclocking features and improved cooling solutions. Then the GTX 1080 will arrive as heavily modified and overclocker-friendly cards and finally we will get GTX 1080 cards with factory-provided liquid cooling solutions.

It is unclear when all the remaining GTX 1080 video card generations will arrive but we should get at least one or two more this year. Of course, the modified and overclocking-friendly versions will be more expensive than the reference GTX 1080, which costs USD 599, so we have every reason to believe that by following this new policy NVIDIA simply wants to dig deeper into our wallets.
