NVIDIA has announced two new powerful graphics cards.

NVIDIA’s CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, said that the GTX 1080 is massively faster than the company’s current king – the Titan X. But not only that, as they also claim that it is three times more power efficient that the $1,000 graphics card and superior even with two GTX 980 using SLI technology.

The new GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 are the first consumer GPUs based on NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture which promises a huge step up in performance and energy efficiency.

The GTX 1080 is the “largest GPU endeavor, largest chip endeavor, largest processor endeavor, in the history of humanity,” said NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.

The GTX 1070, on the other hand, is also faster than the Titan X and it has 8GB of RAM on GDDR5 tech. Meanwhile, the 1080 has the same memory but on Micron’s new GDDR5X RAM.

The NVIDIA GTX 1080 is priced at $599 (~Php28-30k) starting May 27. The GTX 1070 will sell for $379 (Php18-20k) on its release this June 10.
