With this epic announcement NVIDIA has taken the game to a whole new level. In the past few days we have been hearing a lot of rumors about Nvidia’s brand new GPU model named PASCAL. This is definitely any player’s dream which is just about to become true. The company has taken their older Maxwell model which is used by millions across the world and worked on perfecting and improving it.
How better can the new model be? Many people did claim and still claiming that it will deliver about 10 times better performance than the Maxwell line. However this is a little hard to believe as the Maxwell already has an outstanding performance. According to the WCCF‘s review the Pascal GPU is predicted to be equipped with 2,7 times more memory capacity, double performance rate per watt, 4 times better mixed precision performance and 3 times the bandwidth.
Unfortunately we don’t know yet the exact date of the release, but we do know that it’s going to be in April 2016. NVIDIA will get a step ahead AMD for sure after this move.
Good news everyone! The rumors have been confirmed! NVIDIA Pascal will be announced at GPU Technology Conference (GTC) which is scheduled for this April 4 to 7.
The reports state that NVIDIA will reveal two new GP104-based GPUs: the GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080. Their price is predicted to be $449 for the GTX 1070, $599 for the GTX 1080, $329 for the GTX 1060 Ti.
