Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition Review

The GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition is Nvidia's current desktop flagship by its own design. Despite an emphasis on craftsmanship in the company's marketing materials and generally improved efficiency, the reference design will have a hard time trying to justify its high price compared to compelling solutions from add-in board partners. This is doubly applicable since the restrictive power target of just 180W and a 172°F (80°C) temperature target are real limitations.

As with the GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition, Nvidia chose a mechanical-looking design and a radial fan. The card's true two-slot form factor also makes it a good option in multi-GPU machines.

Exterior & Interfaces

The GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition's shroud is made of injection molded aluminum, and colored both silver and black. The metal cover coveys plenty of quality, but also results in a weight of more than 35 ounces (one kilogram). Both this 1080 and Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition have an almost identical weight (the 1080 is just one-third of an ounce, or 10 grams heavier).

Around back, the board is covered by a two-piece plate that serves no practical purpose other than to facilitate a more finished appearance. If you want to increase airflow in a multi-card configuration with 1080s back to back, the plate can be unscrewed without causing a problem.

The top of the card is dominated by a glowing, green GeForce GTX logo. The eight-pin auxiliary power connector is positioned at the end of the card. The sharp-edged and mechanical design may be a matter of taste, but it certainly is distinctive.

A peek at the card's back reveals fins and a mounting frame. Three screw holes are provided for attaching brackets to stabilize the card in a case.

Five outputs populate the rear bracket, four of which can be used simultaneously in a multi-monitor setup. You get one dual-link DVI-D connector, one HDMI 2.0b port, and three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs. The rest of the plate is ventilated to maximize exhaust flow.

Board & Components

A glance at the PCB reveals that it offers significantly more space than is actually used. In addition to one power phase for the memory, five of the six possible phases for the GPU are implemented. There's even space for an extra power connector, if it's needed. 

As you no doubt know, Nvidia taps GDDR5X memory from Micron for this board. Eight of these memory chips operating at 1251 MHz are connected to the GPU through an aggregate 256-bit interface, enabling a theoretical bandwidth of 320 GB/s.

The 5+1-phase system relies on the sparsely documented µP9511P PWM controller. Since this controller can't communicate directly with the VRM's phases, Nvidia utilizes 53603A chips for solid PWM drivers (gate drivers) and controlling the power MOSFETs (primarily of type 4C85N).

Two capacitors are installed right below the GPU to absorb and equalize peaks in voltage. The board design looks tidy and well thought-out.

Power Results

Before we look at power consumption, we should talk about the correlation between GPU Boost frequency and core voltage, which are so similar that we decided to put their graphs one on top of the other. This also shows that both curves drop as the GPU's temperature rises.

After warm-up and under load, the GPU Boost clock rate at times drops to GP104's base frequency of 1.605 GHz. This is mirrored in our voltage measurements. While we measured up to 1.062V at first, that number temporarily drops as low as 0.881V.

Combining the measured voltages and currents allows us to derive a total power consumption we can easily confirm with our instrumentation by taking readings at the card's power connectors. In fact, let's start with the measured power consumption values in the following table:

Power ConsumptionIdleIdle Multi-MonitorBlu-rayBrowser GamesGaming (Metro Last Light at 4K)Torture (FurMark)
7W
10W   
11W
94-113W
173W   
177W

These charts go into more detail on power consumption at idle, during 4K gaming, and under the effects of our stress test. The graphs show how load is distributed between each voltage and supply rail, providing a bird's eye view of load variations and peaks.

Temperature Results

To dissipate the GP104 GPU's waste heat, Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition employs a real vapor chamber solution. The 1070 Founders Edition does not benefit from this same technology. The vapor chamber is a compact module that's attached to the PCB via four screws and positioned over the GPU package.

A radial fan pulls air from inside the chassis and blows it across heat sink fins on the vapor chamber, exhausting that air through the output bracket. The mounting frame is not only used to stabilize the card, but it also helps cool the voltage regulators and memory ICs.

The vapor chamber's performance is slightly better than the 1070 Founders Edition's copper heat sink, as you might expect. Still, temperatures rise to almost 185°F (85°C) during our stress test and 180°F (82°C) during the gaming loop. Then again, that's hardly shocking since the 1080 is rated 30W higher.

Sound Results

Initially, both fan speed curves stay relatively close to one another. But at a certain point in our benchmark, FurMark forces the RPM measurement to burst much higher. During the more real-world gaming loop, however, the fan cruises along just above 2100 RPM.

Noise levels are relatively low when the card is idle, even if the fan's sound has a slightly snarly character. Nvidia doesn't gift the 1080 Founders Edition with a semi-passive mode. But then again, it wouldn't be particularly useful on a card with a radial fan anyways.

Even under longer gaming loads, noise levels stay below the 42 dB(A) mark. Not bad for a radial fan. However, during our purposely taxing stress test, the fans ramp up beyond 46 dB(A). The frequency spectrum is rather wide though, so the white noise doesn't feel too intrusive.

Overall, Nvidia's thermal solution is workable. The radial fan is great for exhausting hot air from the card's back, but it's miles away from making the 1080 Founders Edition quiet.

  • Build quality
  • Cooling
  • Design
  • Easily removable backplate

Nvidia's flagship Founders Edition card always bounces off of its temperature target under load, and thus unnecessarily loses some of its potential performance. That doesn't exactly make us want to recommend it explicitly, especially since the company now charges a steep premium for its reference design compared to competent models from board partners. If there's a specific application for which the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition is perfect, it's inside small, poorly-ventilated cases where exhausting heated air is necessary to avoid high-performance components baking.

The GTX 1080 is a quantum leap forward for graphics cards

Nvidia’s latest flagship gaming card, the GeForce GTX 1080, is causing a stir in the gaming community - and rightly so. Built on the latest ‘Pascal’ architecture, it delivers huge performance gains, boosted VR capabilities and much improved power efficiency over over the previous ‘Maxwell’ models - all without a corresponding jump in price.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition review: Price

The usual suspects have built their own versions of the card, but first out of the gates is Nvidia’s own reference design of the board, known as the “Founders Edition”.  It means it's the 'reference', or stock design. You can buy it for £619 directly from Nvidia, or from other retailers. Also see our GTX 1070 review. 

Some manufacturers have chosen to release their own Founders Edition boards, such as PNY, which you can buy from Overclockers UK for £619.99.

In times past, Nvidia would design and build reference boards as a model for third-party manufacturers to copy and to form a basis from which customised versions would eventually be developed. In the case of the GTX 1080 and its little brother, the GTX 1070, these boards have been dubbed “Founders Edition”.

Reference boards are usually the most basic version you can get, but for the 1080 and 1070 Nvidia has instead built over-engineered versions with improved power circuitry and an advanced vapor chamber cooler. Unfortunately, this has also pushed the price significantly higher than a typical reference board, higher even that many factory overclocked versions you can buy from other vendors, such as MSI's GTX 1080 which costs £559.99..

The Founders Edition boards ship with stock clock speeds meaning you’ll need to overclock it yourself if you’re determined to push it right to the limit. It doesn’t come with any bundled software utilities either, so you’re on your own when it comes to finding such tools.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition review: Tech specs

If you’re in the market for a GTX 1080, it’s quite likely you’ll be upgrading from a GTX 980 Ti. Here’s how the two cards compare.

The GTX 1080 actually drops the number of CUDA cores from 2816 to 2560, but this should be taken in the context of a massive jump in clock speed from 1000MHz all the way up to 1607MHz. The boosted clock speed is 1733MHz, up from 1075MHz.

On the memory side, the bus width is narrowed to 256 bits, down from the GTX 980 Ti’s 384 bits. However, with 8GB of GDDR5X memory rather than 6GB of standard GDDR5, you get more room for your high quality textures at ultra-high resolutions, plus a faster memory speed of 10Gbps, up from 7Gbps in the GTX 980Ti. Speaking of ultra-high resolutions, the GTX 1080 is now capable of displaying up to 7680x4320 pixels at 60Hz.

Despite these extra capabilities, the GTX 1080 actually uses remarkably little power: rated at 180W, it’s a great deal more efficient than the GTX 980 Ti which will happily guzzle 250W. If you’re just upgrading your graphics card, such power differences may not mean much to you, but if you’re building a new system Nvidia claims you will now be able to get away with just a 500W power supply, rather than a 600W one and you’ll only need a single power connecter for the graphics card, rather than the two required to power a GTX 980 Ti. This further cuts down on the cost and complexity of new high-end PC systems - which has to be a good thing.

This increase is efficiency is partly due to do a significant shrinking of the processor technology from 28nm to 16nm, which allows for the higher clock speeds and lower power requirements that Pascal delivers.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition review: New VR features

However, Pascal isn’t just about out-pacing the 980 Ti on existing games. It also provides some new features which developers can exploit for even greater performance gains, particularly in the area of Virtual Reality (VR). With new technologies, such as Simultaneous Multi-Projection, Lens Matched Shading and Single-Pass Stereo, the Pascal architecture is able to render scenes from multiple viewpoints simultaneously, correct for lens distortions in VR headsets and render different images for the left and right eye at the same time.

These technologies will eventually enable significant performance improvements, but currently even a GTX 980 Ti is already able to completely max out the SteamVR Performance Test benchmark, so we’ll be waiting for more demanding applications to appear before the real benefits will be felt.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition review: Performance

We tested the card as shipped without any manual overclocking, but even so, this card is very fast. As we’ve mention already, the VR performance is quite literally off the charts, so let’s take a look at how it performs at traditional monitor-based gaming.

GTX 1080 vs GTX 1070 vs GTX 980 Ti

When compared to the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, the GTX 1080 Founders Edition delivers a noticeable step up in performance, with the gap between the two widening as quality settings and resolutions increase. You will be able to play at 2,560 x 1,440 or even 4K with some games, at Ultra quality settings. With the advent of Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR), these ultra-high resolutions can be scaled down to run on lower-resolution monitors, meaning you don’t have to have the latest 4K display to be able to take advantage of the extra power of the GTX 1080.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition 11 GB Review

141 Packaging & Contents » After weeks of rumors and some less-than-subtle hints from NVIDIA themselves, the GTX 1080 Ti was announced at GDC less than two weeks ago. We all knew this was coming, with a convenient media event scheduled for the same day as the competition, but we got more concrete information from the green camp this time around, including pricing and availability of the GTX 1080 Ti.

The flagship Ti moniker has served NVIDIA well these past three generations, with the GTX 780 Ti based on the full GK110 die and offering higher single precision performance than the original Titan to the point where a new Titan Black was released based off the same die and architecture. The GTX 1080 Ti is a similar story - take the GP102 with a disabled SM as with the current Titan X Pascal, include one less GB of VRAM, and increase stock frequencies for both memory and GPU and we essentially have a GeForce flagship that aims to offer Titan X performance at less than 60% the price point. It was a long time coming with the Titan X announced over seven months ago, but for those who felt the $1200 price point was not reasonable, we have with us a new option from NVIDIA. No FP64 benefits to the Titan SKU this time around means that gamers, programmers, and developers alike will find this GTX 1080 Ti review well worth the read.

The Pascal architecture, used by all GeForce 10 cards, obviously hasn't changed. Compared to the Titan X Pascal, which has 12 GB, the GTX 1080 Ti comes with 11 GB, which means one physical memory chip less on the board (11 chips vs. 12 chips). This changes memory bus width, which has gone down to 352-bit. Less memory bus width also means fewer ROPs, which are at 88 now. The number of shader units has been untouched and stays at 3584. Today's review is of the NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition, a version designed and produced by NVIDIA. It comes with the stunning-looking NVIDIA reference cooler design and a price point of $700. Board partners are already hard at work creating their own custom designs for the GTX 1080 Ti, which will be released from next month onward.
