Nvidias new graphics cards are big deal

N
Nvidia GTX1080

The hotly anticipated Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 is now official, marking a major leap in performance and efficiency with the introduction of the new Pascal architecture. How major? Take the ultra beefy and expensive Titan X graphics card from last year, slice its power demands from 250W to 180W, cut its price from $999 to $599, and then throw in a bit more performance on top. Virtual reality and multi-monitor gaming have also been foremost concerns in Nvidia’s Pascal development, and the graphics company has a super cool new technology to make both better, called simultaneous multi-projection.
