GPU of the Year 2017: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti surges to win

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has taken home the Trusted Reviews Award for Graphics Card of the Year in our 2017 celebration of all the best in tech.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is the pinnacle of Nvidia’s graphics card lineup, making it the perfect GPU for future-gazers wanting the very best. This is among the many reasons it’s been awarded our coveted Graphics Card of the Year award.

With this graphics card in tow, gamers can look forward to next-gen VR, high-refresh-rate 4K gaming, and even 5K resolutions. It’s a performance powerhouse. While it’s the most expensive Ti graphics card ever, it’s a card that really opens up your possibilities.

Nvidia dialled things up to 11 by equipping the card with 11GB of GDDR5X memory running at a clock speed of 11GHz. Furthermore, it includes three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs alongside an HDMI 2.0 port. In tests, the GTX 1080 Ti blitzed past the standard GTX 1080 – which came as little surprise. The 1080 Ti really sets the new performance benchmark.

Our review concluded: “Buying the most expensive graphics card you can afford has long been a reviewer’s trope, but it’s almost always true. The 1080 Ti stretches this advice to its very limits with its super-high price, but with no competition from AMD at this end of the market, Nvidia has reached new performance territory.”
