At the Game Developers Conference last night, Nvidia unveiled the long-rumored GTX 1080Ti, the new king of PC graphics cards.

Boasting performance on par with its $1200 Geforce Titan X for the “low” starting price (comparatively, of course) of $699, the card features 3,584 CUDA cores and 11 GB of GDDR5X video memory running at 11 Gbps.

Not only will the 1080Ti offer higher performance at a lower price, it also has a new seven-phase power design with 14 high-efficiency dualFETs that deliver better power efficiency at the highest usage and power levels. The Founders Edition of the 1080Ti will be outfitted with a new high-airflow thermal solution to keep all that hardware cool.

Starting March 10, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will be available across 238 countries and territories from a wide range of hardware partners, including Asus, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, iGame, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac. These third-party cards are typically outfitted with extra cooling and some even come overclocked. Pre-orders on the Nvidia store begin March 2 at 8 AM PST.
