GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q 

Released May, 2017
  • 1.3 GHz
  • 8 GB GDDR5

For June you needed an efficiency level of 2,299 MFLOPS/W to make the top 10; for November you need 2358 MFLOPS/W..

We can expect NVIDIA to offload some of their PhysX processing which is handled by the CUDA Cores to be offloaded to the Denver CPU on the high-performance Maxwell GPUs to gain more performance and faster GPU physics processing.

In The News From around the web

While VR growth still has a long way to go to reach the levels we hope they will, this NVIDIA launch will make the idea of portable VR gaming even more attractive and accessible than ever before.
Despite the improvement that Polaris made on the GCN architecture, Pascal is still more powerful and more power efficient than anything AMD has been able to product.
Triple 4K displays are totally not common, but it gives us a great look into the future of GPUs and the huge resolutions on their way.
Right now there's only a very small handful of people who would be gaming on a monstrous 11,520 x 2160 resolution as cost is a big roadblock there.
During Q4, NVIDIA launched the GTX 960 GPU, as well as the GTX 965M.
This, combined with the GTX 980 , 970, 980M, and 970M launches recently have propelled the GPU revenue up to $1.073 billion for the quarter.
The GPU business also has a great lineup at the moment, especially with the Maxwell GTX lines.
Also in the GPU segment is the Tesla GPUs and GRID for high performance computing and datacenter GPU functions, and while exact numbers were not released, NVIDIA stated they had strong grown in this sector, with another record quarter for revenue for Tesla driven by “large project wins with cloud service providers and government customers.
