Technical specs

General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.

Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 11Gbps

More pipelines (2560 vs 2304)

Lower power consumption (180W vs 185W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

Advantages of NVIDIA CMP 40HX

Much newer (25 February 2021 vs 20 April 2017)

Cheaper ($1 vs $799)

Higher memory bandwidth (448 vs 352.3 GB/s)

Finer manufacturing process technology (12 vs 16 nm)
