It has almost been a year since NVIDIA launched the GTX 1080, the crowning glory of its latest Pascal-powered GeForce 10 series. In the fast-paced world of computing, that means it's overdue a successor. At GDC 2017, the world's biggest game developers' event, NVIDIA did just that by unveiling the GTX 1080 Ti. The numbering is a bit deceptive, implying a small revamp. It is, however, a very powerful beast, leaping over even the TITAN X, the computing platform custom-designed for AI and machine learning.
