GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Game Requirement Analysis
GeForce GTX 1080 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 1080 put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.
The Pascal Architecture aims for even more Energy Efficiency by using a 16nm FinFET Process and an Improved Version of the Delta Color Compression Algorithm, as well as the use of Second-Gen GDDR5X.
It consists of 2 GPUs Codenamed P104-400-A1 which, together, offer 5120 Shader Processing Units, 320 TMUs and 128 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1607MHz and goes up to 1733MHz, in Turbo Mode.
Each GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Second-Gen GDDR5X, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1251MHz.
Power Consumption is around 350W.
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 25% Performance Boost over a Single GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 70% at 3840x2160.
GeForce GTX 1080 SLI is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend an Enthusiast Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
