The next big boy in NVIDIA's arsenal of GPUs will be arriving this March according to reports, specifically the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will be out for PAX East.

There was no mention of the Ti revision for the 1080 series during NVIDIA's keynote at CES 2017, leading many to ponder when it was going to make an appearance. PAX East, which begins March 10th, seems to be the answer.

There are suspicions that NVIDIA will likely make an actual announcement with full details during the Game Developers Conference at the Moscone Center, San Francisco - running February 27th - March 3rd. NVIDIA did a similar move with the GTX 680 using a side event and then launching the card shortly after. Increasingly insiders believe they are going to repeat a bit of history with the GTX 1080 Ti.

NVIDIA's own reference and founders versions of the GTX 1080 Ti should join the other manufacturer's designs and various launch models around PAX East just days later in March. Part of the reason why NVIDIA is believed to have held back this new GPU's announcement is to help steal some thunder from rival AMD's new Vega GPU. All's fair in love and marketing.

No detailed specifications of the GTA 1080 Ti exist yet but it is strongly believed to be based off the TITAN X's 16nm GP102 Pascal GPU and packing a juicy 10GB of GDDR5X VRAM. It will probably be priced around $800.
