NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti On Linux?

NVIDIA --
The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is NVIDIA's new high-end gamer graphics card as a step-up from the previous GTX 1080 flagship. The GTX 1080 Ti is getting ready for release by retailers and, thankfully, NVIDIA did mail out a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti for Linux testing at Phoronix.

While the GTX 1080 Ti review/performance embargo just expired, unfortunately, I don't have any numbers to deliver this hour... NVIDIA had sent out the GTX 1080 Ti on Monday with next-day delivery, but somehow FedEx has yet to deliver the package. FedEx says it's due to a flight delay regarding a thunderstorm, but unsure how they could have a flight delay for two days... Especially when another NVIDIA package sent out the same day from the same location with two-day delivery had already arrived at Phoronix yesterday. Anyhow, this FedEx Priority Overnight turned into a 3-day delivery. I am told that FedEx should be delivering the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti today. So that will hopefully happen in the next few hours.


Fortunately, I've already been preparing for the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Linux review and just have to test the card itself with already having tested the other NVIDIA hardware on the newest driver as well as some AMD Radeon parts on their newest driver stack. So long story short, later today I still plan on being able to publish the initial GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Linux performance figures for OpenGL and Vulkan. Coming up tomorrow or so will then be some OpenCL and CUDA results along with other GTX 1080 Ti tests -- anyone interested in seeing e.g. the GTX 1080 Ti performance on Ryzen? Let me know your 1080 Ti Linux test requests for future articles.


The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Pascal packs 11GB of GDDR5X, 11 Gbps memory speed, 1582MHz core clock speed, and 3584 CUDA cores. This powerful graphics card will set you back $699 USD for the Founder's Edition. The GTX 1080 Ti can be ordered shortly from Amazon and NewEgg, among other Internet retailers.
