After weeks, if not months of rumours and false predictions, the announcement was finally made. NVIDIA finally revealed the much-awaited Pascal-based NVIDIA GeForce 1080.
What the rumours got correct was the new name of the card. What they missed was the launch date, which NVIDIA kept close to its hearts until CEO Jen-Hsun Huang made the announcement at a specially-gathered press event in Austin on Friday evening (Saturday morning Singapore time).
According to Huang, NVIDIA spent billions in research and development of Pascal and the new GPU.
