Nvidia has always created its boom on the first stand with its enormous range of graphics cards. And with its upcoming GTX 1080 Ti, it is sure to achieve the same aspirations among tech lovers. But as the expected specs and features of the same is lining up one by one, the budding question is coming up whether it would be able to compete with its predecessor Titan X or not.

According to Hardware Battle, the GTX 1080 Ti will sport a GP102 GPU and will be packing 3328 CUDA cores alongside 208 texture mapping units, 160 render output units and a base clock of 1503MHz for a total of 10 teraflops of computing horsepower. It is also said to have 10GB of VRAM.

Whereas, as per a report by VideoCardz, Titan X comes with a 28nm GM200-400 GPU alongside 3072 CUDA cores. It sports 192 texture mapping units, 96 render output units and a base clock of 1002 MHz. So, at the beginning point only, GTX 1080 Ti stands much taller than GTX Titan X Card.

The core count 1080 Ti is not confirmed yet, but it is said to vary within 3560-3584 cores. In that point, Titan X comes with only 2560 cores. The computing speed or Teraflops (TFLOPS) also seems to be different for both. The GTX Titan X Titan X have a TFLOPS of 11, while the TFLOPS of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is only lower by 0.2, coming in at 10.8 TFLOPS.

GTX 1080 Ti also comes with better memory frequency than GTX Titan X. 1080 Ti is said to sport a Memory Bandwidth of 384 GB/sec whereas GTX Titan X comes with 336 GB/sec. So, it automatically assures a higher performance rate than Titan X.

Besides all these, Nvidia is also expected to take extra care on fixing the price of GTX 1080 Ti. While Titan X still costs around $1200, it is thought that 1080Ti will cost somewhere around $1000. Nvidia is expected to officially launch GTX 1080 Ti in CES 2017 event.
