NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 is the first mainstream graphics cards using their new Pascal GPU architecture. This generation is based on a die shrink to 16nm, allowing for a lot more circuitry to be packed into the same physical space used by previous graphics chips. That means a huge boost in performance, making the GTX 1080 over 70% faster than the GTX 980 and 30% faster than the 980 Ti and Titan X. Even with that increase in performance, the GTX 1080 draws only 180W - less than the 980 Ti and Titan X, and only slightly more than the vanilla 980.

In addition to its great speed and efficiency, the GTX 1080 also has under-the-hood improvements tailored to boosting virtual reality and multi-monitor performance. It is excellent at maintaining good frame-rates in games and VR experiences, even in graphics-laden titles and at high resolutions, and includes support for CUDA, DX12, and NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology. Finally, it supports up to 4 usable display outputs across five physical connections: DVI, HDMI, and three DisplayPorts.

William George (Puget Labs) Says:
Standard GeForce video cards can be used for many GPU accelerated applications, and are the most cost-effective option in many situations. The biggest downside is that they don't have good double-precision (FP64) performance, but that is often not needed - especially for commercial software. They often also have a little bit less RAM than dedicated GPU compute cards like the Tesla series.
