The absence of the GeForce 1080 Ti at this year's Consumer Electronics Show have led many tech analysts to believe that the graphics card will most likely make its debut at the 2017 PAX event. Moreover, there are also rumors that the GeForce 1080 Ti will be the last graphics card from Nvidia to make use of the Pascal architecture.
The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card is one of the most highly anticipated graphics cards. It is expected to make its official debut at the upcoming 2017 PAX event which is scheduled to open its doors on March 10. The annual PAX event has been used by many gaming companies to stage their latest creations, which is why it is the most sensible choice for Nvidia to unveil its upcoming graphics card.
Whether the rumor claiming that the GTX 1080 Ti will be the last graphics card to use the Pascal architecture remains to be seen. According to MobiPicker, the latest threat from AMD's Vega graphics card may have prompted Nvidia to ditch the Pascal architecture and develop an even better one.
AMD has yet to release a single graphics cards running on the new Vega graphics card architecture. However, based on information provided by AMD and some leaked sources, Vega might be powerful enough to unseat Nvidia as the current leader of the graphics card industry. According to PC Gamer, during its recent fourth quarter earnings call, AMD confirmed that Vega graphics cards should be able to hit the shelves as early as March.
The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 is expected to have be within the $650 to $1200 price range. If this is true, the graphics card will face a serious competition against AMD which promised that its Vega graphics card will be more affordable than Nvidia's current lineup of GPUs.
